    Any good place to find the now-OOP Battlefleet Gothic?

    Hey, so, I'm a big fan of the Warhammer 40,000 universe, but I also like the space-naval combat of Battlefleet Gothic. I wanted to know if there were any places that I could find a relatively-intact starter kit for Battlefleet Gothic, other than the ridiculously-expensive e-Bay.

    Any ideas?

    No idea, sorry. But fwiw, take a look at Dropfleet Commander. Not only have I often heard DFC being rather favorably compared with BFG, but DFC ist not an old game yet and supplements haven't even been released yet. So now is probably the best time to get started!

    Detail-wise, they're both high-tier btw.

    This looks completely amazing, and I am really looking forward to getting into it.

    Hmmm.... the cheapest place I've found that sells it (the starter set, that is: If I'm going to buy a game, I'm going to want to know the rules by playing against someone else) is Wayland Games, and they don't seem to have it in stock right now (though a restock is expected. Not sure when.) The manufacturer, Hawk Wargames, has it in stock, but it's ~10 GBP more expensive than Wayland. Amazon seems to be out of stock.

    EDIT: Found it on Ebay for a more competitive price (~10 USD better than the other sellers), from a UK company with almost 100% positive reviews (659 positive, 3 negative). Not sure as to shipping, though.

    For Warhammer 40K purposes, you are entirely correct. However, for other products, it seems that they have expanded their shipping options, through Air and Surface shipping, but I'm not sure what International Shipping prices are.

    And, in retrospect, there's another site, Game Nerdz (which seems to have mostly positive reviews on boardgamegeek.com, eBay, and Reddit), which is located in Plano, Texas.

    And they offer free shipping on Dropfleet Commander... but, as of yet, no Warhammer 40K products.

    Wasn't there a company that was making minis very similar to the Battlefleet Gothic minis?

    Not sure, but then, I wouldn't be, being new. Please enlighten me.
