Welcome back to our Mars Attacks Campaign. Today we have the final scenario in the book, it features all the models from the box, so the humans get all the Marines, and all their Heroes at once, the Martians get all their troops and General Tor. They also have a reinforcement system, so each turn up to 6 (if their are that many casualties) casualty models may return from a Martian controlled zone.
The idea of occupying zones rather than attrition made Olivia raise her eyebrow, until she figured out she can just take them over by force.
Lets see if Humanity can make a stand, or if the Martians crush them into dust and ash.
This had been a tough game, hard and brutal, with plenty of combat, and hard choices to make about where to move and who to move, the more zones the humans control the thinner their forces are spread and the harder it gets to push and hold on the other zones, and when the marines are gone things get even tougher, as they are meat shields for your heroes, and give you the numbers you need to lock down those zones. Even with that many zones under human control the game can still swing as the Martians swarm in and can take the zones back, but then they spread themselves out.
A great fun game overall and a good end to our scenarios from the box. Its a game well worth picking as it will provide hours of ufn.
Is that the end of our Mars Attacks journey? well their are other expansions that add new figures and new missions, so I think these need to be picked up! And of course I need to convince Olivia to try the Martians so I can try the Humans through the campaign
