I watched lots of the You Tube videos before making my decision and, I have to say, they're really well presented. I even watched some of the demo-games on the big screen in the lounge with my feet up and a drink in my hand.
Sometimes life is so hard.
So, I bought myself the starter set which has two small fleets, the rule book, a simple game mat (full colour, folded glossy paper 3' x 3' - I think). I'm looking forward to making up the little spaceships and painting them up. I'm going to use my newly acquired airbrushing skills to do these little blighters. I just hope I don't ruin them.
The two fleets are The UCM (United Colonies of Mankind) and The Scourge!!!
I hope I can paint them up to this standard. I'm quite sure I can but it's just that I've never painted models of this type at this tiny scale before. I'll post my results and let you know.
