One of my favorite armies, capable of dealing insane amount of damage with crazy combos. Even if you have the original promo, it's worth to make Myrmidion's beautiful 2nd edition tileset.

A quirky robotic army with low mobility compensated for by lots of ranged fire (and some swivelling). They have a distinctive feel and I've had a lot of fun playing them. What more can you ask of an expansion?

A very fun faction to play with, I really like how this faction messes with the usual rules. The ultra-networks that Doomsday try and build are rarely pulled off the way you would like, but when they are they pack a hell of a punch!

Rating for game with expansion: 10
Adds to the base game:

Note: this is for the PnP 2.5 edition

Not generally the type of army I like to play (it's static, has few instant action tiles and clutters the board), Doomsday Machine is nevertheless a nice addition to Neuroshima.

On the newness scale of 1: might as well just play the base game army (Sand Runners) to 10: are we still playing NHex!? (Mephisto), this rates about a 9.

Playing with it feels hit-and-miss: At one point you'll have no units capable of attacking on a completely filled board (except for your HQ, which is netted), and a few turns later you'll have your Tripler unit out and deal 12 damage over the course of two battles.

At the moment this is my least favorite army that I'm still interested in playing, but that might change with more plays. It's certainly nice to have an army that's functionally similar to Moloch (i.e. powerful but slow, wants to dig in and cover the board with ranged fire), that's still very different. Very different. Most other (both official and fan) armies, including my own, take the opposite approach and go with more mobility, more units &c.

Maybe Uranopolis fills the same 'inconsistent static ranged army' niche. But Doomsday Machine really is like no other army, so kudos to the designer.

There are some wonky rules, like the Tripler. It creates separate attacks, of which the original shooter is still the source. So you'll have multiple attacks, by the same unit, in the same initiative phase. Odd.

Oh, the Doom Net Fighter is perhaps my favorite unit in all of Neuroshima. It has three distinct functions, and still is clear and cohesive.

In a nutshell: extremely interesting design, but also extremely alien. Is it any fun? Well, I'll have to become more familiar with it before I can answer that question.

This 5th army seems weaker and its rules have some unfortunately unclear places, but there is a new ability for a unit to receive friendly fire as an input and redirect it out another direction (or directions!) which is cool, and there is a Grab action that seems neat, sort of the opposite of Push.

My review.

2011-12-17: Although this army lost a lot for a while, as we gained experience it started to win. It may just be harder to play well until you get a sense for it.

+ It is exactly how a small expansion like this should look like - the army could easily be in the base game, after two games it does not seem to be too or too little powerful.

Initial Rating: 7.0 (November 2013)

Very nice army to play with. I particularly like the redirection of the ranged attack, it makes a lot harder to play competitively but it is very fun if you manage to do so. As you can’t move, you have a distinct disadvantage if you go first in tile placement.

I will comment more as soon as play again with this army. I love Neuroshima Hex so I´m linking this new (for me) army.
