Un-boxing the All Quite On The Martian Front Starter Set…………..

Posted: November 28, 2014 in All Quiet On The Martian Front

Earlier this week I ordered the All Quite starter set. Why you ask? Well I wanted to get hold of some more steam tanks, dough-boys, and some more tripods. And so it worked out cheaper to buy the starter set then the induvidual models.IMG_2252 IMG_2253First off the box is smaller than what I was expecting (325 x 210 x 105mm) maybe its all the years of GW starter sets, but I was not expecting it to be that small! The box is also made of thick card similar to board game boxes rather than the thin card used by GW.  The picture on the back of the box can be removed allowing you to cut out the “red eye” points out. It is also worth noting that pictured in the “template set ” are 6 triangle shaped counters (immobilized markers) which are NOT included in the set. Also the mini rulebook does have points and stats for the units just not a full set of unit descriptions and special rules like the hardback book.

Inside are the small A5 format rule book,2 dice, plastic blip and damage counters, heat ray and blast template, and a getting started sheet.

Their are a few differences between the retail version and the Kick starter version.

1: The retail set has a “getting” started sheet (that’s all).

2: The KS version, Had extra dice, blip and damage counters, a tape measure, and some card terrain.

Model wise I have already looked at them before.

And As I said before the starter set is well worth the money £72.00 (I was lucky enough to pick it up for £65.00).
