Well, last weekend I had hope when I visited a FGS (not local ). The guy told me he could get the original core set for the original price.

Well bad news, he can't

Now, one of the 2 FLGS (the less friendly of the 2) have 2 original core sets...but they're in french and at 125CAD price tag.

My question...is this game text heavy?

Except the rules (which I already downloaded the revised rules from FFG) and unit cards (which i'll replace with the upgrade pack), is there any other text based stuff needed to play in the original core set?

Maybe I sound weird asking this but I like having my games as homogenous as possible and since i'll get many expansions, english ones, I don't want to have a base game in FR and expansions in EN.

Thanks and regards!

No, it really shouldn't be a problem to have a french edition. The cards are probably not even translated, and if they are, you're planning on buying the card pack anyway. The only real text is in the books. The rulebook you don't need, read the revised PDF. So the only issue would really be with the Blue Thunder campaign booklet. If you buy the tile pack, you get the revised one and you're all settled.

I'm pretty sure that the Little Shop of Magic shopofmagic.com still has one or two of the original english boxes on their shelves. (Call them if you don't see it in their online store.) The store isn't a discounter, but they do ship worldwide.

Ok good. The only think that make me hesitate is the medium walkers...only 2 versions are in the original core set but if you buy them in expansions, they come with 3 or 4 version.

I'm think about simply buying the revised core set plus the medium walker/panzer expansions.

Well i'll think about it this afternoon

I received my big box during lunch and damn hte nice stuff it contained...except I miss Pounder's canon

I just contacted FFG about this so i'll wait until it resolves itself, no biggy though, I can wait.

The minis are really nice, love em!

Congrats on your purchase!

Give me some mails if you're interested in playing and are around Montreal!

(With your name and country, there's a strong chance )
