Deadzone by Mantic Games: First Exposure

Todays #miniaturegaming foray is the next title I am digging into: the sci-fi skirmish game #Deadzone by Mantic Games. Played on a 2x2 board it uses grid movement and no measuring. Basically it is a boardgame with miniature game tactics

Line of sight is painless and movement is fluid. There is also the meta game of card play and Commander special abilities. Great stuff. All factions and terrain provided in starter box sets. Today a Plague team took on a Marauder strike force. 

Plague players can assign mutations to soldiers. Marauders (Orks to many) have goblin snipers and dogs strapped with explosives.
