Grindhouse Games were there and they were nice enough to give me a sample game to review and play.
Incursion is a board game where the Allies are pitted against the Axis in a Space Hulk/Legions of Steel type environment. The Germans have developed the ability to control the dead, turning them against the allies. The game setting is based on an alternate WWII setting where the war rages on past 1945.
Incursion also includes a 2 sided quick reference sheet and dice. The board game and pieces are high quality with great graphics. Each trooper has both a front and rear image to indicate movement and fire direction. There are all sorts of markers and doors that are used throughout game play.
Just like Space Hulk and Legions Of Steel, this game is a lot of fun. I really like the mechanics and the cards really spice things up. Just when you think your a goner, that perfect card pops up that allows you to triumph over the evil Axis or Allies depending on who your enemy is.
After you play a few times, you will probably want to replace the cardboard cutouts with real miniatures. Luckily, Grindhouse Games doesn't disappoint.
The Allies have some sweet troops in full power armor. The Axis have hoards of Zombies to throw at the Allies and other creatures too evil to mention. In some scenarios, the Allies are really out numbered, so they must rely on their superior firepower and heavy armor to survive.
The miniatures are pricey. A full set of 6 power armored troopers will set you back $70. If you can afford it though, the figures are outstanding and have tons of character. The Axis starter set is also $70. For that you will get 12 figures, which include all the Axis baddies. The troopers can also be purchase separately, but buying the starter sets will save you some money in the long run.
As I write this, I can not help but think that Clockwork Goblin Miniatures needs to get together with Grindhouse Games to make a 15mm version of the game.
