Hi all,

I'm trying to decide whether or not purchasing a second base set of the game for the C&C ruleset is a good roi. I know that Mr. Borg has stated in the past that there are plans for epic rules and scenarios, but it's been a while since we've heard anything. Has any progress been made on the front behind the scenes?

I know that the point buy system of the AoT system would make it worthwhile, but while I will eventually learn and play those rules, my main focus is the C&C component.

Opinions?

Thanks!

I think that the duel rules set has slowed the game down a bit. Zvezda has struggled to enter the North American marketplace which is a real shame. The Art of Tactic system is interesting and fun.

IMHO a second set would be a must as I anticipate that the AOT sets will demand the board and Mr. Borg will expand upon an epic setting. I just think that his focus is on C and C Napoleonics with emphasis on La Grande Bataille.

I think a second set is a must for C&C Samurai.
Otherwise you'll find yourself having to swap the flags on the unit backs... This will likely lead to some breakage of flags and possibly figures.

I bought two sets and painted them in different colors.

I have 4 sets, because we need them all to play some standard size scenarios, not to speak of larger Epic size battles. You can find the Samurai Battles game at some great prices on the internet, so it is not as expensive as a player may think, especially when you consider the cost of a single mini-kit vs the number of kits in the core game.

Thanks for the input everyone. I ordered a second set this morning.

Mr. Borg, 4 sets?! wow I bet those battles are indeed epic. So are there going to be published scenarios that require that much plastic or is that just you tinkering? btw, thank you for the wonderful game.

Best,

I bought a second set originally, although I haven't assembled its figures yet. I'll probably do the expansion figures first. On the other hand, if I ever got rid of my old Milton Bradley Samurai game, I'd probably keep the figures for use in SB! Here's hoping Zvesda will continue with issuing expansions...

Is the ninja expansion set out yet?
also Zvesda seem to be trying to get distribution here in the uk - their models add ons (the little 1 or 2 base expansion packs) are in a lot of the model shops...
I'm off to the ukgames expo this weekend so i'll see what exposure the system has there too.. I like the Samuari C&C but I also like the WW2 Art of Tactics set and I know they're making a Vietnam War one..

ok new one here....a quick question - i know NINJA expansion will have some extras for C&C part - but how about small (mini) expansions.
Thous are only for AOT rules right?

THX for answer
