Ordered this today (whilst HMV in bed !!!) as gets good reviews and its solo (ie no need to find opponnent). Decided against any of the tactical games as I have enough miniature games to scratch that itch so the strategic/abstract nature of this appealed, that plus the 'oh shiny' factor of the components.
I suspect this one will be appropriated at a later date and I also fear my painting plans will go awry !!
