It has done particularly well at the US cons thusfar, and while that is not a prime example of the FLGS market...it is a very good sign.???? Where is it going over well in the US market, got examples? I don't see it? I only know of 6 players within 100 miles of me, and another 6 more if I go another 50 further. I wouldn't call that hittin the market OK, would you?
Also, internet negativity seems to spawn negativity; so I would think that perhaps the issue is just that the happy fans are the quietest ones.
I know that nearly everyone we demoed to at Origins picked up at least the rules and most grabbed a box or two of models. Hell, some of my old friends at Privateer Press grabbed some up.
I believe it is doing far better than what some people would have others believe. And SST Evo is going to likely DEMOLISH BF Evo's numbers if the amount of booth-interest can be taken at face value.
Have some faith gents and ladies,
