Last year my imagination was captured by the various Martian offerings on Kickstarter, not least the Alien Dungeon proposal for ‘All Quiet on the Martian Front’ a miniatures game set roughly around the time of the First World War but based around the events of the Second Martian Invasion. Now that the miniatures have finally started arriving we can get some games under our belts.
All Quiet on the Martian Front is a 15mm (or rather 18mm) miniatures war-games based loosely around the First World War but with lots of human steam tanks fighting against the Martian tripods and their other arcane devices.
There are a few of us in the club (Swindon And District Wargamers www.sadwargamers.com) who joined the Kickstarter funding last year. I did try to limit my financial exposure (for once I held back from the lure of all the amazing toys available) so my collection is somewhat smaller than my colleagues so I have been looking for alternative more mundane solutions to evening up the sides a bit…
Over the coming posts hopefully I’ll be able to bring the delights of their genre to you and hopefully explore the rules (for better or worse…)
