Not to mention their other forays into the App Store, like Elder Sign Omens, have been very well executed.

Jumping on this one as soon as I clear off enough space. I own the physical BattleLord game (1st edition) and love it, but don't get to play it nearly enough. I'm really looking forward to playing against the AI in particular.

I haven't had the chance to pick this one up yet but I plan to grab it just for the skirmish mode. The fact that it comes with a huge campaign mode is just a bonus!

Also, I'm told that there are lots of well made tutorials to help you learn the game so those of you haven't played BattleLore 2.0 (shame on you) can get up to speed quickly.

This game seems to me what I wanted Space Wolf to be like (paid up front and not freemium). Although the theme is different the game mechanics seem similar with the card-based turn system.
