For two bleak decades the Undead reavers of Count Noctilus have plagued the oceans of the world. After each raid, the Dreadfleet disappears into its lair as quickly and silently as it appeared, far from the reach of Man. And yet there remains hope. Captain Jaego Roth of the Heldenhammer has vowed to hunt down and destroy Count Noctilus and his Undead captains once and for all. With him sail the most notorious and cunning of the pirate lords of Sartosa, each borne to battle upon a giant warship bristling with cannons, organ guns and bolt throwers. At the stroke of midnight on Geheimnisnacht, most forsaken of nights, the Heldenhammer and her companions sail into the realm of undeath known as the Galleon's Graveyard. One by one, Count Noctilus and his vile allies move in to stop them.

Dreadfleet is a boxed game for two (or more) players that includes everything you need to make war on the turbulent seas of the Warhammer world. At your command are two fleets of ships - the Dreadfleet led by the Vampire Count Noctilus, aboard his gargantuan sea-hulk the Bloody Reaver; and the Grand Alliance commanded by the Pirate Captain Jaego Roth, who recently stole the Heldenhammer - the pride of the Imperial Fleet, and one of the largest galleons to ever sail the high seas.

As your ships engage in furious battle, it's down to you, the fleet captain, to make important split-second decisions. Do you bring all guns to bear on the closest enemy warship, or do you sail into position for a furious broadside? What happens when the warship catches fire, or worse, the powder kegs ignite? Exactly how much punishment can your warship take before it sinks without a trace? Are those Undead seagulls or flying piranha fish? And, when all else fails, do you have the courage to ram your foe, board their ship, and engage them in a duel to the death?

“Getting the pieces painted a big turnoff”

I love the gameplay of Dreadfleet! It’s very easy to learn and undersand. There is nothing more gratifying then coming up on an enemy ship and tearing it apart!

We have a huge group that gets together and letting everyone control one ship each is very sweet! Best way to get 10 people playing one game!

Painting all the pieces would be a pain for me. Paying someone would be very expensive so my pieces just sit unpainted and this highly upsets me. This is probably the only real problem I have with Dreadfleet.

Overall I love the gameplay and the ability to have 10 people playing but the non-painted pieces are a huge hurter.

“yep 110 bucks gone down the drain”

like another of the GW scams this one is also out to get your money…beautiful miniatures but they asked for too much for what it is… if i didn’t get gift certificate for my last birth day i wouldnt have bought it…
well this gonna be my last game or anything from GW coz i think i grown to hate them , and i hate them so so much….
anyway…. this game is ok… it will be fun for a while but i think you are better off getting other games that does the similar things that is half if not quarter of the price GW asked for
i recommend… battleship galaxy(41$), wings of war(10$per a painted miniature), or if you really like ships to ships battle .. wait for “sail of glory to come out”… miniatures will come prepainted and they won’t ask for a 100 from you neither, i think their starter will be around 60 bucks like wings of war was
