So what can you tell us about the game? Why do you like it? Are the rules, that is the game mechanics really great? Or is it more that you like the setting or the writing or what?
This is the thing i like about the setting:
The first wave of settlers and exploiters that mankind sent forth to the stars unwittingly unleashed an ancient pathogen found among the ruins of this alien empire. This pathogen spread throughout the colonies before it fully revealed itself. By then it was too late. Mankind’s new born empire was decimated and its success hung by a thread. But now the pathogen has played itself out, and it is time to rebuild what was lost. This is where you come in. With enough money to buy a salvage starship, and employ a rough and ready crew, you can see the opportunities that await someone who can survive on the Outer Rim and gather the resources left behind from the ruins of two empires, one human, one alien
I think that is cool. The part about the salvage starship and rough ready crew. Makes me think of Alien: Resurrection and the mercenaries on board The Betty. Also, that means I can use my Necromunda and 40k models as my company. And that you can play in many different environments.
I can't tell you much about the rules, since I haven't really read all of them.
To shoot you must make a Weapon Skill check on 2D6, and you must roll equal to or lower than the fighters skill level. Then you roll for damage. Then you must beat the opponents resilience score and armour to wound.
Instead of bottling out you call for your dropship. Models that's too far away from The Drop Zone gets left behind and you have to roll to see if the survive and comeback.
I can post some more examples the game mechanics after I have read more.
I've previously seen the miniatures for this game before online. I think they have some nice miniatures, not all of them mind you, but a few are quite nice. As ever, I'm always happy to see a new game hit the market. I think that the hobby as a whole benefits from good competition.
I agree. Some of the miniatures are cool, others are not. But you can easily convert Necromunda, 40k and othe sci-fi miniatures and use them instead.
