If you missed it this weekend I did a review of the new Warhammer Fantasy Battles Starter Box after checking it out at my FLGS. I was left with the question of who the target audience of this product really is since it was very lacking in material to help a new wargamer actually learn the game. Hard to find unit stats, no training scenarios, no warhammer lite rules, etc.
So I ask you all, Who are they trying to target this product to:
1. Brand New Wargamers who will buy the box, take it how, and with a friend learn WHFB.
2. Brand New Wargamers who will learn the game with demos or from friends then buy the box.
3. Existing Wargamers who play other systems that they are trying to bring back into the fold.
4. Existing Warhammer 40K players.
5. Existing WHFB players.
Since GW is the biggest fish in the scene and essentially needs to be constantly bringing in 1 and 2 to offset veteran losses, how well does this product allow it to grow its player base?
Let me see some comments. Do you think this is a great set and why?
