Though I must admit I have way, way too many miniatures skirmish games, I’m sure I won’t be able to resist this one. The clincher is the head-to-head mode, which is a great idea; I sometimes find one-vs-cooperative play a bit restrictive.

I hope there are enough differences in the system to set it apart from Descent in feel.

I noted that FFG are, as usual, being very clever businesspeople by establishing a system of ‘Ally Packs’ and ‘Villain Packs’. I guess after the success of X-Wing, this kind of drip-feed figure expansion, a few figures at a time, is much more advantageous for them than releasing boxed expansions with lots of figures in them. Less risk, bigger margins etc.
