Yeah. According to rumor, it's not Man O'War, but some other stand alone naval game.

Empire vs Vampire Pirates. No word on whether they'll release other factions.

From what I heard, the empire side is more a collection of the various factions (there's an elf ship and a dwarf ship and a bretonnian ship in the fleet all there to stop the vampire).
Fast, like kittens with jetpacks.

It's up on pre-order now. http://www.games-workshop.com/gws/catalog/productDetail.jsp?catId=cat440146a&prodId=prod1350015a

Looks cool enough, but now confirmed a stand alone limited edition game. The models are quite excellent, but I don't exactly have $115 burning a hole in my pocket for ten wee boats.

Interesting that there's an Araby boat in there. Why that faction always shows up in the small scale games and never in Warhammer still mystifies me.

Disappointed they picked this over a BloodBowl re-release.

10 wee boats a sea mat and scenery plus all the kit, I like it but I am surprised by a completely 'new' game as a limited stand alone choice. Blood bowl would have been the more obvious choice but it would not have been stand alone if only because of all the teams. I dunno, $115 is a lot for an unknown .... but...

They're hoping people buy 6 sets to cover their Dystopian Wars table.

I'm seriously tempted by this. That's a lot of sweet plastic for $115. The Space Hulk limited edition boxes now go for more than they did new. Even considering that this is a game of unknown quality and more narrow appeal, I'm guessing the resale value will be good.
