After a successful Kickstarter campaign, Architects of War are now able to make this interesting game available to all those who did not get in as a backer. As a game designed around 15mm miniatures from the early 20th century it takes a time period that is less played and adds the H.G. Wells flavour of the Martins returning to Earth after their defeat by the British. This time they start their campaign in the United States and are testing the equipment and resolve of the Americans. Of course you have the British with their experience in fighting the Martins coming to the aid of the United States by sending their British Expedition Force (BEF) to aid in sending them back to where they came from.
The initial starter sets and individual miniatures are available for the US and Martin armies, with the BEF to become available at the end of June.
It seems that World War I is getting some well deserved love and respect recently and this will make for an interesting twist. There is also some scenery planned with the first set, trenches now available for pre-order.
I plan on looking more into this game and I just might help to defend the Earth from this marauding horde. Will you join in the fight too?
