AvPG Previews AvP Miniature Game

Back in November I attended a special open day for pledgers of Prodos Games’ Aliens vs. Predator – Miniature Game Kickstarter campaign. The game mechanics weren’t fully developed and only a small number of models were on show at the time but I had a blast!

“In the boardgame versions of the game, I witnessed Predators being downed by Aliens on all sides of him so the swarm mechanic doesn’t leave the Aliens underpowered. Aliens also demonstrated nice defensive abilities that were supposed to emulate their agile nature by being able to completely ignore hits if certain numbers were rolled.”

You can read more of my impressions and a gallery of photos from the day in my preview article. I’m looking forward to seeing more of the game! As well as that I have also updated my review of Dark Horse’s Aliens vs. Predator Omnibus Volume 1. You can also see these and other articles in the articles section of the website.

    If it makes you feel any better... i find it way easier to paint those little figures then larger (7inch+) ones. As weird as that sounds. To bad RagingDragon and i can't come over to help. Painting party?

    Awesome Hicks! I've been playing miniature games for a long time and have quite the hand at painting, so if you want any tips just ask.

    These are some of my favorite games, the only real problem being the Dungeons and Dragons dilemma: I have to play with real people. :laugh: That becomes a challenging combination of living in a little town and dealing with the usual player base, which are pre-teen to snotty emo mid-teen or 35 year old mouth breather.

    That sounds judgmental, but I've been there man. It's not fun lol. Hard to find a good gaming group in a small community.

    Sounds cool beans. Like poisonous animals. That NECA genocide alien looks so lovely in that vibrant red...  an army of smaller ones will be rad. I'm sure they have painting tutorials on youtube? They had some free short classes at Gameworks stores(when that was still around) on painting. I dunno if other stores that offer tabletop games would do the same.

    I know them feels  :-\ I have a few nice models that i'm terrified to paint.

    I was going to do some red and yellow Xenos.  :P Unfortunately I don't really paint so I'm kinda worried about how mine'll look.

    I recently brought a Firestorm Armada carrier group and I still haven't gotten the nerve to start ruining the models.  :-[

    I'm waiting for the pledge adjuster to go online - I'm gonna give them even more money. I only play Star Trek Attack Wing at the minute but I've just brought a set of Firestorm Armada ships so I need to try painting.

    OH MAN THIS LOOKS SO RAD.

    I used to take my little bro and his friends to those Warhammer 40,000 games way back when. Those games are fun... but take some getting used to. Mainly i enjoyed painting the figures for them  :P

    How cool will it be to play a tabletop game for AVP?!?! Looks pretty cool from what i can tell.
