  1. No one's going to comment anything about the artwork in Coney in a Trap? I think it contrasts heavily with the superb artwork in the Nightmare scenarios; to put it mildly, IMHO it competes with Gather Information for the worst artwork in a player card. Just my two cents, of course, ymmv.
  2. Not to mention the fact that classic Legolas will be apparently much better in the first quest (due to Seize Them!) than the new Legolas we'll be getting in the deluxe box.
  3. But they've put Ramsey in a card game since longtime... albeit disguised in the LOTR card game:
  4. I don't think so, beyond the simple premise of minis in a board, good guys vs bad guys. Based on the description, this is a more sophisticated revamp of the original doom, which is the grandpa of actual Descent. Space Hulk is just one on one, and the hourglass is a factor. This is one vs many and the mechanics (dice and cards) remind me more of Gears of war (at least for the marines, since GoW is cooperative) than anything else.
  5. I hope they produce properly the dice this time. A more or less balanced game would be welcome, also I love the old Doom, but discovered it too late to have my dice replaced or find the expansion in English. Too bad, I hope they clean the design and make it a blast from the start this time. Hopes are high, do we know who's the designer behind the new baby?
  6. I realise now this was already answered in the "rules forum" (which I also discovered), sorry for the useless post.
  7. Hi guys, simple question: When you play Mushin No Shin (or any other card allowing you to "place advacement tokens"), do you take the tokens from the bank and place them on the card, or do you pay credits from your pool to advance the card as per the usual rules? Thanks in advance!
  8. Damm, you're right! My bad.
  9. I've seen a lot times people stating that Straken is just a watered down Zarathur, but I can see some instances where Straken is better. Take a 1ATK warrior/soldier unit and attack your opponent. If he plays one shield, Zarathur does not get to deal +1 dmg, because no damage was actually dealt. On the other hand, he will take 1 damage if Straken is your warlord. Not saying that this will happen a lot or that in general Straken is better, on pair, or worse, but they definitely work differently, and their differences could expand even more with the card pool. Just saying.
  10. If you need / like some tactical advice to increase your victory ratio, there's a guide I originally wrote, uploaded to BGG, under the name of "Death Angel Complete Guide" in the files section. Have fun!
  11. My win ratio is about 90% using vanilla game. It increases a lot using Space Marine Pack 1 (Adron and Raziel); it decreases a bit against Tyranids (I'd say around 80%), and it's a bit lower with the Death Wing. Playing solo could be devastating with the Deathwing.
  12. That's correct, it doesn't matter if the genestealer was "freshly spawned" or stayed on the formation for some rounds. The swarms just move as long as they're activated.
  13. Every swarm moves as a whole, as long as it contains at least one symbol that's been activated by the Event Card. Hope that helps.
  14. Every week. Well, almost
  15. I don't know, I read it quickly and thought it could be the case. I wanted to clarify in case it was the case.
