A while ago, pretty much out of the blue, we decided to give Deathwatch: Overkill a go. Usually I don’t play anything unpainted, but in this case, we made an exception. Still, shortly thereafter I started painting the Deathwatch Marines.
This is a rather early WIP, but stay tuned, there’s more to come!
It's OK. We played (with unpainted minis, much to my shame) the first four scenarios I think and it feels quite like a 'little lad's/lady's first shooty boardgame'. It's rather fun, it's not badly thought out, but it feels a bit uneven in terms of scenarios. Feels quite like a thing that's meant to bring new people to playing 40k things rather than being a game that stands on its own. It's quite a hybrid between miniature wargame and boardgame.
If you played Space Hulk – it's a bit like that, except there are no walls. Instead it's basically all platforms rather than rooms.
