Hi, Just played my first mission and found the game quite easy to understand, just one minor question if anyone could answer for me.
Do you return a defeated Locust figure back to the mission card so it can be spawned again or is it removed from play altogether?
In the rule book I could only find the text "remove the figure from the map"
I ended up playing the first mission and never needed to spawn any more than the original number placed in the set up part of the game.
I chose Damon Baird and played Emergence in a solo game as I couldn't persuade my wife to control a COG, maybe she would have if female one had been available
By the finish I had no ammo left with his starting weapons, but had picked up a Scorcher and killed the last Locust with 1 Ammo left on the card. I Had killed 6 wretch, 3 Drone, and 1 Boomer. Making 10 kills in all and had 5 order cards in my hand. So I think I did quite well for my first game.
My overall plan is to play through all the mission from the base game and mission pack 1 over the next few weeks, between playing start painting the figures. At the end I will hopefully have a few ideas for some fan missions to include some new Locust figures. I already have ideas for a theme just need to see about implementing them into this great game.
