Because you can't have pulp sci-fi without space squids. These are going to to be a fantastic choice for people that want to do something a little off-the-wall with their paint schemes. I mean, accuracy isn't going to be an issue with space squids, right? You can do whatever you want! But there are delightful decisions to be made even before you prime them, right from the moment you take them out of the box. So let's take a look, shall we?

League of Extraordinary Gamers reviews Counterblast rulebook

League of Extraordinary Gamers gives us their thoughts on the Counterblast rulebook from Bombshell Miniatures.

From the post:

Hello there ladies and gentleman (or should I say dolls and cats?), and welcome to an LXG Book review. Today we're going to get to the nitty gritty of the Counterblast rulebook from Bombshell Miniatures.

Counterblast is a bit unique as far as the game itself. It is set in an alternative mid-twentieth century, where atomic testing ushered in visitors from other worlds. The game is soup to nuts a re-visitation of the classic days of pulp era science fiction, with just a touch of a modern flare involved.
