Via the AvP Wargamer group on Facebook. I've no idea where they came from originally and I haven't found anything about the game with a cursory Google.


Found the source! https://twitter.com/BoardGameGeek/status/965664337271672833

So it's a new thing.  ;D

GF9's a solid publisher - I'm lukewarm on their Firefly game, but it's hella popular, I sell a ton of it when it's available, and I'm a big fan of Star Trek Ascendancy.

I've played Firefly once and enjoyed it well enough. I've not had the pleasure of trying Ascendancy yet though. I know they're supposed to have a really good reputation. So much so that they're name attached to an Alien game is something I'm not in the slightest worried about.

The Aliens cooperative board game will be a dungeon crawl type game, with the colonial marines taking on the xenomorphs. "It's going to be story‑driven," Mackey said. "You might set up to play the mission that it's a bug hunt. You sit all the boards up. You literally put all the models out, including the sentry guns. You go to town killing as many aliens as you can until you die. Wave after wave, those keep coming.

"Or if you don't have as much time, you might play the mission where you have to go rescue Newt. You and Ripley are going here to rescue Newt from when she gets abducted. You're going to play encounters with things that happened in the movie even to the point where there's a scenario where you fight all the face huggers in the med lab." Release is planned for September. MSRP is $50.00.

About 27 minutes in the Alien box comes out but he's talking about the technical issues of IPs and etc right now.

At about 32 minutes he does start talking Aliens. 5 marines, 1 Ripley, 8 x 1 type of Alien, 8 x another. It does sound like there's going to be expansions - definitely other Ripleys, the other marines, Bishop, Burke, Newt, 3D terrain. It's specifically set within the Aliens narrative like the Leading Edge game.

Well Drake has already been confirmed by NECA, but licensing is weird.
The miniatures in this game may be based on the film but that doesn't mean they are the named characters from the movie (if that makes sense).
You see weird loop holes like that in the 1:6 scale hobby all the time.

Very well, according to the playtest people.

My issue is that the Aliens have huge heads and tiny legs, hard pass for me.

When I saw this on Twitter yesterday, I immediately thought of someone photographing their NECA Hudson holding the board game piece Hudson, staring at his mini-me and questioning his existence.

It would work with Burke, too, because the expression is on point.

Some feedback from GenCon:

QuoteSo I've got mixed feelings.

The board itself, which may be replaced with tiles down the road, and the miniatures are very nice!

Allot of the dice and actions remind me of the Leading Edge aliens game. you can move, shoot and roll d10s and all that.
The endless respawns are a bit like both the Leading edge game and like Last Stand.

They stress this is VERY EARLY ALPHA, and that a big announcement is gonna drop in a month. the game is set to "hopefully" drop sometime late 2020. Possible licensing issues with Disney.

New tho is this card system which is were Im not too sure.

So there are two decks.

The first is a shared deck. you draw from it to fill your hand. And you can use a card to either put it in the exhaust pile, which will shuffle back into the deck when it runs out, or into the discard, which is gone for good. once both the main deck and exhaust deck are empty its game over for everyone.

You all got that right? good lets keep going.

Every card has actions on it. when you use a card you exhaust a card form the top of the deck and compare its symbol to see what action the card takes. you also need to sometime exhaust or discard cards from your hand to do actions.
No one understood how to play, and Im not sure the demo'r did either.

out of all the "dungeon crawler" games I played at Gencon this year this was the weirdest. Every thing that was not those cards FELT like Aliens. The card bit was just weird and made no sense.

PS, compare this to the MGS game which played and felt like the ps1 MSG game with stealth and intentionally exploitable AI. Great game if you get the chance to check it out!

I can recall. I meant more that they're stressing how unfinished the game is, when they originally intended to have it out last year (or even earlier) and have had models ready for quite a while. Difficulties with Fox aside, this is a serious issue.

Well at least someone found out something about it. I stopped at the Gale Force Nine booth during GenCon and they had nothing set up and the guy I asked barely knew anything about it and said something might be set up on a table later. Well I checked back probably three or four times and I didn't see anything. The only thing I heard from anybody was about the September 2nd date for an announcement that has already been posted earlier. So who knows what that means, but you think they would have had made a bigger deal out of it since it is one of the biggest gaming conventions around and it is supposedly close to some kind of news.  ???

From Gale Force Nine's Facebook:
--------
We know loads of you are waiting for ALIENS information...so here it is!

There are TWO expansions coming to supplement your gaming experience and let you bring the film to your tables.

Ultimate Badasses lets you round out the complete squad so you can play as all your favorite characters.

Get away from her you b@!$h gives you Ripley in her power loader and the Alien Queen as well as new boards, rules. and missions.

Just remember - they mostly come out at night, mostly.

Pics are on the FB page. Perhaps they should announce a release date for the base game before announcing expansions. But what do I know...

So Gale Force has officially announced a release date for the core game for this October, with a further 2 expansions later on in 2020 so perhaps one in November and one in December?

QuoteWe at Gale Force Nine have been waiting a long time to give you this information, and we are now proud to say that the complete Aliens Boardgame experience will all be released this year, 2020, starting with the core game in October.

Aliens: Another Glorious Day In The Corps
• Play iconic characters
• Recreate awesome scenes from the movie
• Quick and easy rules
• Dynamic co-op gameplay
• And all the Aliens you can kill!

Two expansions will follow later this year, adding to the experience with new characters, missions, and game mechanics.

Aliens: Ultimate Badasses
• Increase your Fireteam with six new Characters
• Gain Experience cards to give your Characters new abilities.

Aliens: Get Away From Her, You B***h!
• Play as the Alien Hive
• New campaign missions and locations from the movie
• Recreate the epic duel between Ripley and the Alien Queen

We'll be rolling out more details about these releases in the coming months, including video content looking at game mechanics, and detailed looks at the miniatures.

Hearing odd things. The latest previews say that there will be "plastic, multipart" Aliens (Ie; like warhammer models), but as far as anyone knows the rest of the models are still crappy PVC. To make matters stranger, the Aliens shown in that preview are the Prodos Warrior sculpts (The AvP ones, not the Aliens ones, even more strangely). I've heard buzz that Prodos is involved somehow now, but it's unconfirmed.

What the actual f**k is this game, even?

Post by: [cancerblack] on Jul 16, 2020, 01:53:15 AM
Worth noting that the Prodos digital sculpt shown was on a base that matches the updated marines from GF9. Plastic-multipart implies hard plastic rather than resin (although resin does get called plastic sometimes, but GF9 knows better than using that confusing language imo), the base shown supports some kind of change, and Prodos was supposedly well on their way to AvP plastic sprues when it all shut down...

It's pretty hard to get any hard and fact info on the Aliens game, even though it supposedly comes out in October, and that means that it should get to the factory at most in September, even if the Coronavirus won't delay shipping.



Hmm, prodos sculpts in black plastic and with a few alternate parts. I'll have to wait and see what the material actually ends up like, but if it's hard plastic I might end up with several boxes of this gathering dust so I can chop those Aliens up into some more interesting poses.

Both games seem really appealing to me, although Another Glorious Day In The Corp naturally seems like a meatier game. It's just a shame that the get the whole experience I'd have to also buy the expansions.

I've only properly got into board games in the past year or so, so the timing is pretty good. Many a night playing the wonderful Legendary Encounters game!
The theme came thorough really strongly in that, although the artwork was hit and miss. Looks similar in Bug Hunt, seems a bit cartoony at times.

Which bits play like the Leading Edge game, out of interest? Some of those rules do sound pretty snazzy, like the aim of your marine going down each time you shoot. and the streamlined way the xenos move together.

It died last year, there was a big half-price sale and all.

This looks to be actually much better as a game, mechanically. I just loathe that it's tied to the characters and events of the film, and wonder how simple it would be to make new maps/missions that are reasonably balanced and generic character cards that just detail wargear, not "this model is explicitly Vasquez".

God, anyway One of my first thoughts was also how to make my own missions, I'm trying to find ways of assembling my own WY Merc battalion to use as either npcs or main caracters for some campaigns.

Your own missions for AvP:THB? Very easy - and the Hot Landing Zone expansion has rules for an all WY force. The wargame version (AvP: Unleashed) requires actual terrain/scenery to work well, but has very open army list creation tools and is not focused on linear missions like the boardgame is.

Given that the battlefield is based on card building floors, it might be fun to have them separate, perhaps with Colonial Marines vs WY Mercs outside and Xenos waiting inside the buildings.Maybe you could set it during a nighttime rainstorm so that the shooting range would be farely low., I guess there would be nothing wrong with using other wargame buildings, depending on the scale if the minis, I hope they're 28mm scale, cos that's all I've got at the moment.

They're approx.  32mm scale which means 28mm terrain works fine. I'm currently building up a bunch of MDF sci-fi buildings for it and they look fine with the models. However we should probably migrate to the dedicated AvP:THB thread rather than clogging this one up.

I got mine 2 days ago. It looks good. The models appear very plasticy, but I'm not up to speed on the positives and negatives of that for miniatures.  My Assets package was shipped wrapped in paper instead of the actual box.

What I meant by that was whether they're hard plastic (like say, a warhammer figure) or softer plastic (like the majority of boardgames use).

While the core mechanics of the game do seem interesting, I think I can probably find a PDF online and just lift a few odds and ends for homebrew games. But sign me up for a few boxes of the plastic warriors and accessories.

Still torn on the humans, since recreating the movies isn't something I really care to do.

But I'll never touch that queen. It's gross, and not in the good way.
Title: Re: Aliens: Another Glorious Day in the Corps - A Cooperative Board Game
Post by: Eighty-Five on Feb 16, 2021, 12:16:40 PM
Just got an order of minis from the postie: 12 alien warriors, a queen and the accessories set. I didn't bother with any humans because they're out of scale with my largely 28mm collection and I kinda like the aliens towering over all the 'human' minis rather than being almost the same height.

They're honestly way better than expected. The images on the GF9 website don't do them justice. There's some seriously crisp, fine detail on par with Prodos' old resin minis on the warriors and assets & hazards set while the queen is slightly softer, more on par with early 00s Warhammer plastics but still acceptable. The plastic is hard plastic, possibly a little harder than Warhammer stuff which is nice because I heard the marines were really soft. Also, the prices on these kits is shockingly good compared to most minis in this scale. Even more shocking when you remember these are licensed products. You even get a bunch of spare heads which can make good conversion fodder/pred trophies.

My only complaints are: The warriors' feet are integrated into their bases and the queen has a derpy face. The warrior bases have nice detail and stuff but I was hoping to use bases that match the rest of my collection and that might be challenging.

As for the queen, it was kinda hard to tell from the pics online but something looked off about her facesculpt. I've got her in hand now and the issue is clear: She has a MASSIVE underbite for some reason. Her lower jaw sticks out very noticeably further than the upper. Also her inner jaw looks kinda... Wonky, idk. Not too much of an issue for me tho, I'll just trim away the bits I don't like and re-sculpt it more in-line with the rest. Otherwise, the queen kit is actually really nice. Good detail, proportions, etc.

Shame they only seem to have the license for Aliens and not AvP as a wider franchise because the quality of the Alien kits at least is insane for the price. Would love to see some more EU characters/castes, not to mention Predators done to this standard.

EDIT: Just noticed the sprues say where the kits were manufactured. The warriors and assets & hazards are manufactured in Poland while the Queen was done in the UK. Hmmm...

Prodos is based in Poland iirc. And the warriors are almost identical in size and design to their AvP warriors, while the assets & hazards look almost identical to some stuff Prodos put out. Is GF9 subcontracting some of their production to Prodos?
Title: Re: Aliens: Another Glorious Day in the Corps - A Coop...
Post by: [cancerblack] on Feb 17, 2021, 12:32:09 AM
Yes, the Warriors are pretty much the plastic Warriors Prodos intended to release, before the license fell through (if anything changed, it's just the bases). Prodos/Archon are still the ones producing them for GF9.

They're actually the same sculpt as the Prodos AvP/ADI-inspired resin figures, just with the files reassembled into a plastic frame.

Yeah, that's what I figured. I will say tho, they're a weird hybrid of movie designs. The heads are pretty much movie-accurate to Aliens rather than the derpy Requiem ones, with the finned forearms too. Their legs are also more humanoid than the AvP/Resurrection 'raptor' legs. Really the main AvP influences are the extra-long tails with the 'sails' near the tip and the fleshy, muscular-looking shoulders of later designs. I'll probably trim down the shoulders and sculpt some more biomech detailing on, since the shoulders are one of the things that detracted most from the biomechanical look for me haha.

That's just a personal preference for me tho, nice to see Prodos' hard work hasn't entirely vanished. It's a shame they didnt get Prodos to do the Queen too because she's definitely a much more basic sculpt by comparison, but I won't complain too much. She's in scale, very cheap and I can just sculpt/convert the bits I wanna change.

Post by: [cancerblack] on Feb 17, 2021, 01:49:08 AM
The ribs, bellies and pelvis are very ADI, although not completely faithful. The heads are odd, since they're textured more like the ones in Aliens, but taper off rather than ending in a phallic tip (compare and contrast with the Prodos Alternate Warriors).

Also worth noting, they only have digitigrade legs in A:R, they go back to plantigrade in the versus movies.
Title: Re: Aliens: Another Glorious Day in the Corps - A Cooperative Board Game
Post by: Eighty-Five on Feb 17, 2021, 03:19:42 AM
Yeah, you're right. I haven't actually watched the crossover movies in years. Don't even own them anymore.

Agreed there are more subtle differences in the torsos and hips compared to the more OG designs, but at this scale and with a consistent paint scheme, it won't notice. Thanks for pointing out the heads tho, I would eventually have noticed it myself and if that happened after painting I'd have to bang my head against something hard  :laugh:

Guess my GF9 boys need some head & shoulders work Also, tailsail trimming.

Yeah they definitely seem to be. The quality of the plastics is insanely good. Even Games Workshop struggles to get detail so fine and sharp on their kits and they're the biggest miniatures manufacturer on Earth.

Somebody at Prodos must have made some kind of Faustian bargain somewhere down the line.

I think the smaller companies do better as they aren't having to produce as huge an amount as GW does. If you want to see some great miniatures, look up Awaken Realms, and the board games they do. Some of the absolute best mini's about. Nemesis in particular for the Alien vibes.

A lot of board games manufacturers subcontract the production of models out to specialist companies. Hell, even some wargames companies. Iirc the ill-fated Battletech revival subcontracted its miniatures to SodaPop.

Hell, Games Workshop themselves didn't make their own miniatures til around 79.

Not 100% sure, but Archon does the miniatures for a lot of games, so it's entirely possible.

I have mixed feelings about it, having done a test-fit of the model to get an idea of how it comes together. I've decided to sculpt an entirely new face onto the head because the stock one is disproportionate and fugly. I'll also trim the spines along the tail so they're more in line with the movie and not weirdly mismatched. Aside from that, the halves of her torso assembly don't sit together very well which might require some extra work, but hey.

She's very cheap for a model of her size and she looks like what she's supposed to be. I never got a Prodos queen and I'm sure as hell not paying £100+ for one on ebay that's got a 50% chance of being a recast.

I will say tho, GF9 have been very cunning with their photos of the queen kit. She looks a lot worse from other angles. Initially I thought the head looking oversized was due to foreshortening haha.

Based on what I saw on their website, GF9 ships from the UK. Not sure what the relationship is between them and flames of war or if they have regional offices, but if GF9's stuff is only coming out of the UK it may be due to COVID/Brexit complications.

It wouldn't be having any greater impact on international shipping than it would on internal shipping for stuff like this and they certainly didn't have any notice about it anywhere. I think they ship to asia-pacific from their other (US) base though. I'm hesitant to try a third time in case they turn around and charge me for all 3 attempts, and my emails about it have gone without reply.

Idk, maybe ~£50. I don't care that much about getting a slightly nicer sculpt of a creature I already have represented, and Prodos models have their own drawbacks. I'd be more excited about getting a Praetorian.

I think anyone who's doing stuff like paying £400 for Prodos dropship kits and such is a mug honestly. The only reason the prices get so high on the aftermarket is because people lack the self-control to force sellers to lower their expectations. I suspect those closing-down sales have made a few scalpers lots of money.
Title: Re: Aliens: Another Glorious Day in the Corps - A Coop...
Post by: [cancerblack] on Feb 18, 2021, 11:34:03 PM
Honestly I'm looking into it. I have a dropship that realistically, is too much of a chore for me to ever assemble, and a fresh sprue of cloaked predators, and if people want to pay me hundreds of quid for those, I'd be stupid not to take them up on it.
Title: Re: Aliens: Another Glorious Day in the Corps - A Cooperative Board Game
Post by: Eighty-Five on Feb 18, 2021, 11:40:47 PM
No judgement on the sellers, really. While it makes me a little sad that I'll probably never get most of these things now, it's the buyers with more money than sense that make it possible. Can't hate guys for wanting to get the best price they can, because ultimately I have the same attitude, just from a buyer's perspective :P

I've managed to nab a few Prodos bits at near-retail prices so I'm not too bitter about it. Even got the Adepticon '17 alien which is a lovely sulpt.

I'd advise checking what those things actually sell for before getting your hopes up btw. I just know the prices I've seen listings at. Idk how often/if ever people actually buy those kits.

I know a guy who's sold a few sets of the cloaked preds, one went for 300 pounds but the rest were a lot lower, you have to get lucky about buyers upping each other. I know for a fact that the dropships do move at that price too, as silly as it is.

In other news, GF9's APC has no interior detail but I suspect it's still a much cheaper option than anything else in the same scale. Saw a bunch of guys shitting all over it on fb and idk why really.

How often is anyone actually gonna use the interior detail for gaming? A solid model will be more robust and easier to put together, which is a lot better on the tabletop imo.

Maybe they're just lowkey bitter that they shelled out hundreds for Prodos ones.

On a forum I was previously a member of, we used to do this thing called a forum battle, where one player would host the game and others would select an army or character and then send in orders via PM. The Main guy would then carry out those orders and post new pictures and so on.

I would very much like to buy this game, when I do, would anyone here be interested in doing a "forum battle" of the missions it contains?

Last time I sent something to Australia for a private sale, pre-covid, it was about 80 grams weight (it was a small Warhammer conversion kit) and the size of two matchboxes, and even that was $15. A big heavy box or boxes full of cardboard would quickly approach the cost of the items themselves in my experience, not to mention what SiL said.

How are you lot painting your Xenomorphs? I glued the first of mine today after they were sitting on a pile of stuff to be glued for a few weeks.

I've not had the chance to paint these, but they're based on the same CAD files as the Prodos resin ones, of which I have painted over a hundred in various schemes. Do you know what kind of vibe or "look" you want for them?

IE; neutral black, metallic, blue-toned, glossy, brown, etc?

I was wanting to make them brownish, like that Neca one I'm using for my fanfilm

I remember talking about something related to this with you before, and unless I'm misremembering, you have some experience painting models right? If I get the time today I'll dig out a brown NECA warrior and paint one up to match it, and pass the recipe on to you.

Although any pics will be potato-tier.

Thank you, that's very nice of you to help me.

I do have experience painting models, I do have a decent amount of wargaming stuff, it's just that my best is "Getting the paint on the right area"

No problem. I assembled and primed one but haven't done the colours yet. I'm having some nasty pain problems at the moment so it may take me a day or two to actually get it finished. When I do, I'll post the method alongside which paints I used with both branded and generic names (ie; scorched brown/chocolate brown).

Alright, I got this done a couple days ago, and have been trying to get this burner phone to take a half way decent picture or two since then. But without a macro setting or even manual focus, it just isn't happening. My next post will be a very detailed (by necessity, since there's no pictures) step by step on how I got it looking like a NECA brown warrior.

Thank you!  I've got 8 out of 12 glued so far.

I think I finally found a way to make a 28mm Call from Alien Resurrection!

This upcoming set from Wargames Atlantic has the right head, weaponry and bodies:
