Hasta la vista, baby……………………………………

For years now I have been waiting for some one to make any official game for Aliens, Predator and the Terminator, well this year will see all 3 get official games!

Prodos have the license to do Alien vs Predator (hopefully turning up soon)

And River Horse Games have the license for the new Terminator Genisys film.

Well of the two company’s, River horse games (with the help of Warlord Games) released¬†Terminator Genisys yesterday. Unfortunately my copy was delayed by a rouge T-1000 disguised as a postman and so I have only just got hold of it.

As you can see you get a 128 page rule book and a “fast play” 16 page book. 1x Card reference sheet. 2x sheets of counters. and 1x sheet of stickers. Its worth noting that no tape measure is need to play as their are 3 card templates that are used for movement and firing, The stickers can be used to show what dice are need to be used by the models, and can be stuck on the bases. Their is also a double sided paper gaming mat 580mm x 860mm. The counter sheets also have some 3D card walls and 2D terrain elements on them.

DSCN0658Next we have the Fate die marked up with 1’s 2’s and fate, then we have 2 of each die (D4, D6,D8,D10,D12,D20). And a metal Kyle Reese model. Mine was broken at the ankles and I have contacted Warlord about getting a replacement.

Next we have the models. First up you get 16 resistance fighter armed with various weapons. Then you get 10 Terminators and 5 Terminator crawlers. Now I have seen some people over on face book moaning about the quality of the plastics compared to the Prodos resin models, which to me is a little bit unfair. Mainly down to the fact that resin holds the details better than plastic, I am sure that if the plastic models ever get release for the AvP game (the resin models were meant to be kickstarter exclusives, and that’s gone out the window already) then they will match up with the quality of the terminator models.

I now have something to use the all Mars Attacks terrain………………
