Catching Up With Nate - First Game Thoughts (Scourge)

87 Comments

We find out how things are going for Nate now that his beautiful space aliens have taken to the battlefield.

Things might not be turning out so well but maybe something will explode...maybe? Quick, fudge it!

I must admit I am jealous! Here in the US, only the 2 player set is available. I have to wait until the January release to add my PHR to the collection.

Whatever you playing: a series of sixes can win the game.

The game is shaping up nicely. I was also looking at availability in the US, looks like the new year might be the time to jump in.

How viable is a carrier heavy list? I really want battlestar galactica from the UCM 😀

I love the friendly atmosphere – even showing what ‘might have been’. I need a gaming table

Scourge seems pretty solid…. i’d say they look like BRUTES! heavy hitting good resiliance… not so many shaenigans!

Be cool if you had spare bit of kit to make destroyed versions of the ships to leave on the board as you go.

That’s a good idea for using the spare bits you end up with. Debris of exploded ships.

I don’t know why the Scourge aren’t more popular. They have a good aesthetic and even better playstyle from what I can tell.

I think it’s because the aesthetic is a love it or hate it sort. I’m not a huge fan of the aesthetic personally – it suits the force thematically of course, it just doesn’t pop for some people. Also I think of all the factions their weapons are the hardest to see “at a glance” and that might have something to do with it.

That said I am actually considering picking them up just to have something different, so maybe it will grow on me 😀

I love the Scourge, they’re fast and brutal, but very fragile, it’s a strange mix of very sneaky submarine style combat with vicious charges… like a whole load of aquatic predators…

Seems you want to keep the ships close to their max distance apart because of explosions.

I was irritated the first time I saw it in one of the pictures too. I needed a closer and more intense look on that one, than on the grey Star Wars one that was worn at the bootcamp the same day.

I like it!

“I rolled a lot of 6’s” well that is an easy way of saying how the game is going 😉
