From the post:

I met the Darkmook Miniature guys at Bristol Comicon, and was greatly impressed with the look of their games! How ever, I have never ventured into the world of tabletop gaming, so I thought now is the time to start!

I used a computer generated version of the game so hopefully it is easier to follow

Starburst reviews Darkmook Paper Miniatures

Darkmook Paper Miniatures gets themselves reviewed by Starburst Magazine.


From the review:

Tabletop gaming can be a very expensive enterprise. Your typical tactical wargame consists of a large box packed with models, rules and counters and tends to cost about the same as two or three newly released video games. Such an enterprise can make it difficult for the smaller games companies to get much of a foothold, because all of that costs a lot of cash to set up and it also puts off the more casual sort of gamer. Luckily there is a way smaller firms can write great games and at the same time offer these things for pocket money prices.
