But at a page per pence ratio it is pretty much on a par with Hail Caesar and Black Powder, and a third of the price per page of Operation Squad, and just a couple of pence more per page than the Flames of War basic book.
It is actually reasonable value. My grumble would be that by making such a large book, instead of separating the content over a few books it makes it hard for those who don't have such a large amount of spare cash at one time.
In my opinion and with no offense meant I find this a ludicrous logic to take, the bottom line is that other Rulesets such as disposable heroes at £12.50, Rules of Engagement at £25.00, Flames of War at £30 and Operation Squad at £18.00 put KN as a complete no brainer at £48. How much credibility you put in a company that suddenly halves the price of its rulesets just like that is up to each individual, for me, my money has to be spent wisely on the right ruleset. I like the 28mm size and that is my second reason for not obtaining KN. I went for RoE and really enjoy the ruleset. I was looking at trying Operatiojn Squad as I would enjoy to involve more armour in my game (not that you can't do that in RoE) but am now looking forward to see the results of that announcement of the joint venture between Warlord Games and Osprey. If they keep it to the ethos of a skirmish game like RoE but expanding it to include larger formations and Airstrikes and the like It could be a great game to look forward to.
