    GF9 releasing a board game??? Kind of odd.

      Nah, all the cool kids are doing it: GW (via FFG), PP;
      Besides, GF9 has got the experience in making components.
      It looks very similar to Hoplomachus: The Lost Cities

    By GF9, don’t we mean Battlefront?

      I could be wrong… but clicking on the link, the big headline at the top of the page is what I used for the title of the post. So… someone needs to go change the website, I guess.

      Kind of makes sense to use the gf9 brand… it has a history of licensing other franchises (unlike battlefront which is associated only historical wargaming), and seems to be a good way to expand the product line which is a bit niche right now.
