I was just going to post this!

I just ordered and filled out my Tannhauser collection! I finally got Novgorod! Yay!

Looks like they have just about everything except the newest stuff and the core game.

I just ordered a second Matriachy trooper pack and another shogunate trooper pack. I won't bother painting them I will just mark the bases and the boards. I wouldn't pay full price but with shipping is basically buy one and get one free.

Thanks Jason thumbsup
If I was in the US I would order up, although I am a rookie, and yet to get through a full game, sooo many rules. Must play when not tired.

Great prices, save that shipping outside of the United States is pretty expensive, specially when compared to MiniatureMarket.

Though ultimately cheaper, no Frankenstahl =

I'm torn on this.

So, I own the base game, plus several figure expansions. Unfortunately, I've never been able to get the game to the table, so I have no idea what it's like. (If it matters, I own Earth Reborn, and didn't like it.) On one hand, I need to get the game to the table before looking at other stuff for it or I just need to sell what I have.

On the other hand, the holiday prices on FFG's site are too good to pass up, even with shipping included. I know they are putting the game on hiatus. Is this FFG just clearing out back stock, or has FFG stopped reprinting these items and this is one of the last chances to get these before they're gone for a long time?

Just pretend you live in Australia and shipping makes the decision for you.
If you haven't played the game might be better to hold off expansions.

I just happened upon FFG's holiday sale yesterday and wanted to pass along the good news here. I'm glad to see someone else already did it! I too managed to complete my Tannhauser collection thanks to this sale (and picked up a couple other goodies from other games I was missing as well!)

It does seem like FFG is clearing out their stock of these "older" games, so if anyone has any interest in Tannhauser at all, I'd pick these up before they're gone! (I made that mistake with Runebound and am having a helluva time finding stuff now.)

For those of us who just recently got a copy of Tannhauser (and just picked up a hard copy of the revised rules for $7 today ), we have a quick question:

With the FFG sale right now, is there any reason to get more than one of a particular unit/expansion, ie. more than 1 Yula, 1 Rameriez, etc?

Thanks!

Nope. With the exception of troopers, the figures are unique. A normal game is 3 heroes and 2 troopers but you can probably integrate the extra troopers with a custom set up of sorts.

So if we were to get anything in duplicate it might be the troopers, if that. Would you or wouldn't you?

It's only an extra $20...but does it warrant it?

Thanks again for the quick response(s).


eta: Went ahead and got everything + an extra each of the troop packs.

The only ones worth duplicating are the Shogunate and Matriarchy pack since the Reich and Union troopers are also in the main box so only one set of expansion needed.

The advantage of having 2 of the same trooper is that you can pick that same trooper twice instead of having one of each type.

Another advantage is that if you have one of the troopers in play that dies you leave some of the equipment behind. If you can and decide to respawn a trooper with command points. Then you have enough tokens for the new guy and the dead guy's left overs.

Awesome! Thank you so much for the answers. BGG rocks!

If you've got the cash to spare, I'd go for it. If it turns out you like the game, you now don't need to pay exorbitant prices to pick up the missing pieces. If you don't end up liking the game, you can become one of those folks asking exorbitant prices for the missing parts of other people's collections.

Also Frankenstal is good for multiples but since it's not on sale I only bought one.

So, I broke down and picked up 3 map expansions (Novgorod, Daedalus, and Hinansho), 1 of each troop pack, and 6 single mini packs, all of which I don't currently have. The total came to $90 before sales tax and shipping. To compare, as my FLGS sells at MSRP, it would've cost ~$295 plus sales tax to get all of that from them. If I did an OLGS like CSI, it would've run ~$195.

I feel like such a bargain hunter, what with this purchase on top of their $25 Horus Heresy. Now to just find room for all of this...

Well, I jumped in to this game head first. Just picked up one of every thing offered in the FFG sale and two of the Shogunate and Matriachy troop packs. Now I just need to pick up the base game.

Is there any point picking up Hinansho without the Oriental troop packs ? Does it work with the base game ?
Now I am the one torn, was keen until the checkout came to $40 postage to Australia, which I know isn't much, but as I've got it to the table once, hard to know if it's worth investing in.

If you can find the rules, you actually don't need the base game (aside from wanting more figures and one more map). If you picked up everything on FFG's holiday sales list, you'll have two full factions to play against.

The maps work with any of the figures. I picked up the Hinansho map even though I skipped the Shogunate figures.

edit: grammar

DOH! Now I'm wishing I had ordered 2x Matriarchy troopers. I only got 1x since I thought they came in Novgorad.
