The Gaming Gang posts A Review of ‘Counterblast: Adventure Battle Game’

The Gaming Gang takes a look at Airlock Game’s Counterblast sci-fi miniatures game in this new review article.

From the post:

Counterblast is a skirmish level rule set and players can easily get into a game with only a handful of minis and a playing surface measuring three or four square feet. The system uses ten sided dice so you’ll need to have a handful of these as well as tape measures for everyone as Counterblast uses inches. Honestly, there isn’t a huge start-up cost to dip your toe into Counterblast (unlike plenty of other systems out there) and you can certainly field a crew of five of six minis on each side.

Counterblast pre-order ending soon

Bombshell Miniatures is taking pre-orders for Counterblast at their discounted prices until the end of the month.
