I was there for a good deal of time and played quite a few games. I rather enjoyed playing the game and there is in my opinion a good amount of replayability not to get bored with it gladly.
I played 5 games with a couple of scenarios against a few of the other customers that were there. The models inside were painted basically but I think that was just to get it on show that day. But using the models you cant really see the difference between this plastic kit and the Forge World models we are accustomed to. The games can range in time depending on the scenario but each game lasts around half an hour so if youre looking for a quick game then this certainly ticks the box.
The dynamics in using energy points for movement, shooting, assualts and consolidation takes no time at all to master and the combat is a fairly simple system that everyone from the new budding starter to the hardened veteran.
The box sells itself in my opinion, by of course using these minis in our heresy armies, but the actual game is a good one and GW have done well here!!
In regards to the heresy armies we use I can actually envisage using this game and its mechanics for the Horus Heresy. Because we use such a limited amount of models I can imagine this would be perfect to formulate our own short killteam missions and also I think this would be a great to do a Shattered Legion escape mission.
I honestly cant wait to have a hold of my own copy of the box set and put these into my armies. Bring on my next impending legion!!!!
Let me know if youve experienced the game yet and let me know what you think in the comments below. Also let us know how excited to get your own!!!
