I had a game of Laserstorm with a friend who is new to figure gaming in general. He coped amazingly well with all the previously unknown unit names and soaked up the game rules like a sponge. Didn’t want to go too small but maybe over did the unit count. Didn’t really take enough unit photos for a full AAR and we only completed three turns. At that point the Notau led by 7VP to 5VP and I am sure had the upper hand. Not entirely sure where I went wrong except perhaps being a bit over cautious with my armour. Also probably want to max out on the uber cheap stuff with the Orks, I didn’t have any real advantage in numbers today. Sorry to you purists but I have to use some markers for activated units (the hex ones) and who needs to take a morale test (the blood splats) Some photos on facebook here:08/01/2018 at 11:24 #81177Angel BarracksModerator
Nice looking models.
Are the big grey buildings 15mm, the doors look quite large?
Also, did he enjoy it?08/01/2018 at 17:46 #81220Tim SnoddyParticipant
Yes the buildings are 15mm. I just came across them and put them out for some reason. I think of them as big hangars or factory spaces. I pass the Disney studio where they are filming the Krypton TV series every morning on my way to work and you should see the size of it, and the doors.
Yes my friend seemed to really enjoy the game. You always wonder if people are just being polite but he was keen to continue the game for longer than I imagined anyone would want to on a first game and wanted to arrange a return match. Plenty of laughs and the body language was good so I am pretty sure he did enjoy it.
I actually get really nervous demoing a game now. If to fellow gamers you know you have one chance to make an impression and get them to play your choice of game again. Demoing to someone with no knowledge of figure gaming was even more nerve racking. Amazing what is obvious as a gamer but needs explaining to someone playing for the first time. Like measuring movement needs to be done from the same point on any model.
