combat game, set in the Warhammer 40K
universe. Every race
has their own fleet, reflecting the same general fighting style they exhibit in 40K; the Eldar
have gracefully devastating ships, the Orks
have ships designed to charge headlong into battle, and the Tyranids
ships are biological terrors that actually feed on other ships!
Gameplay is pretty intuitive, following pretty simply from 40K (I was able to pick it up in a couple of minutes), and rather enjoyable. That, and the ships are pretty awesome looking. The main box contains 8 ships, 4 Imperial and 4 Chaos, all cruisers of two different types. The rulebook and supplementary rule cards are pretty clear, and the counters and rulers are well made. All in all, a good value and a good game.
