It has the requisite 500 preorders on p500, and presumably will be happening at some point. I don't really know how long this usually takes.

If it's anything like Replicators you are in for a long wait.

Play testing for Talon 1000 is well underway, and art and design elements have been in production for a while as well. The wait shouldn't be too long. If you missed Talon the first time don't forget there is a reprint scheduled for Q2! The reprint and T1000 will be a great combination purchase as well.

If anyone's waiting for the reprint, they should be aware that it's still on p500, with only ~170/500 preorders.

The reprint (and P1000) are going to use a different coating on the ship hexes that should erase better. I think it's the same coating used on the box of the first printing. Depending how obsessive you are it might be worth getting the reprint if you already own Talon, just so they match.

    Talon 1000 is not a standalone, correct?

From GMT website:

"Talon 1000 is a dependant expansion for the game Talon."

It is not.

Talon 1000 comes with a bunch of ship hexagons, the scenario tables that give it it's name, and that's it.

You could probably play some of the scenarios without ships from the base game, but you'd have to provide your own:

-Hex Grid
-Markers
-Various counters
-Rules
-Terrain (the base game ships have nebulae and asteroids on the back sides of them, I've heard the Talon 1000 ships have different ships on the back instead.)

So I've preordered Talon. Any reason to jump on this expansion or wait because there's plenty of game in the core?

You keep using that word. I do not think it means what you think it means.

I should mention that the P500 price for Talon 1000 is only $23.

I'm just trying to remember if I pre-pubbed or not. For all I know I may get two.

GMT has already announced the reprint on their schedule for this spring. It doesn't have to have 500 orders.

Also the 500 orders for Talon 1000 doesn't mean it necessarily will be published, but the odds are pretty good.

Indeed, the P500 system is increasingly misleading as a name. It is more like P750.

That would suck if they don't do 1000...
