From the post:

All Quiet on the Martian Front was just released by the nice folk over at Alien Dungeon. It is a 15mm scale tactical game of the Martian invasion early 20th century. The “current” game year is 1914 and the Martians control a large part of the globe. I backed it on Kickstarter just over a year ago and finally the big box arrived containing about 2/3 of the initial releases.

    Received my first backer reward for this too – the tanks are nice and quick to put together & paint.

    Can’t say I’m much impressed by the game itself though – very rules-lite (the tanks at least will benefit from more detailed movement & side/rear armour penalty houserules I think) – not necessarily a bad thing, but there’s also some glaring inconsistencies in the balance of the units. For example :

    MkIII Steamer : 300% of the firepower of the MkII at only 116% of the cost?
    Imperial tank : can replace standard gun with coil gun for free. Coil gun identical but malfunctions.
    Kitchener tank : similar to MkIII steamer but can’t fire its gun a quarter of the time & costs a quarter more points.

    Also perhaps someone can explain to me why ‘crippled’ tripods can more faster than uncrippled ones? (upto 3-4 times faster).
