We have a small group of guys who's interest is picking up for this minis game. Rating will go up if that interest holds.

Update: Bumping the rating up a notch as the game is getting some good play.

Shows some promise, and great looking package - but too much is left out of the rules - desperately needs an FAQ/eratta! And what you get with a couple of starters isn't enough to play a decent game at all.

Edit: after buying several blisters I'm revising my opinion of the game far downwards. The gameplay is actually great (but probably too simple if you're a fan of hardcore miniature games), but I have never, in all my years of gaming (about 30) encountered worse-designed (albeit nice-looking) miniatures to assemble. If you didn't have to assemble the damn minis I'd give this game an 8.

Great minis. Fast moving small scale skirmish game. Plays with only a few models per side in under an hour. Action juggling makes for tense tough decisions in gameplay. Models are awesome, but frequently hard to assemble. And a lot of the women have dumb 'sexified' outfits , which is really a shame because they are otherwise very cool. Warning: the 'starters' play very badly against each other; don't expect to get a good game straight out of them.

Painted: 40/43

Pro: Awesome, small-skirmish combat. It maneuvers quickly and feels like a nice tabletop translation of game mechanics from videogames like final fantasy tactics and street fighter.

Con: Try getting your friends to play it. They won't.

A great, cheap minis game. Lots of variety in squad building and abilities in a relatively simple game. The sculpts are excellent.

Fun skirmish style miniatures game. Thematic character selection and a pretty standard JRPG inspired canon and backstory with a boardgame and RPG as well.

The character selection is supplemented by characters that are synergistic and can be grouped as factions which give you even more bonuses. This mechanic can lead to certain broken combinations I feel, but I haven't played the game that much and haven't seen a lot of the newer characters.

A smooth skirmish miniatures game. All the characters are heroes with great powers. Games last less than an hour when you know the basics. Lots of fun to be had here!

A fun game that only requires a few miniatures to play with. Very simple rules to understand, maybe the best introductio to Miniature gaming I've seen. Limited replay ability due to the characters being totally pre-set. However still a simple, fun game with a lot of positives.

Very well made table-top miniature game. The mechanic of the game is very similar to Chess, where one wrong move decides the entire game's outcome. The "one-wrong-move" is usually meant by one bad movement and gets AOE'ed to hell.

Great game, fun fast and cheap to get into. Very nice figures.

EDIT: Reviewing past ratings, lowered this to an 7.
Still a great game and some of the most beautiful figures.
There 'may' be some balance issue with certain figures being much more powerful than points but only combinations will truly exploit such.

This is a game I would play with fluff/figure fans, not against power-gamers.

Like: Artwork and Lore. Action point and combat system.

Dislike: Extra investment of Miniature Assembly, miniature painting, and custom terrain. Measuring system. (we switched to a grid system very quickly)

Loving the system and minatures. The deep void left by Rackham is being filled!

After a large number of plays I am less enthused by the amount of grind that occurs during combat. The mnis are indeed some of the best ever, but the game tends to drag.

It's okay, and the low price point of an "army" is a major plus. Ultimately, though, neither I nor the people I played with could really connect with the world or the characters enough to care. Guess there are risks associated with "read the upcoming RPG if you want to know anything about the world."

A game based on a series of "one trick pony" special abilities. Game play gets really predictable after the first few games. Sold on eBay.

A skirmish miniatures game. I picked up the Dark starter, but there really doesn't seem to be much of a community playing this.

The models are really great - I plan to pick up a bunch more once I get some other painting projects done.

I will say this: most of the miniatures are not for the inexperienced assemblers. I have been into miniatures for a long time (too long) and a lot of the minis for this line - although beautiful - are incredibly difficult to assemble, especially when pinning is required (which is quite frequently).
