TheAuldGrump Posted May 28, 2016 Share Posted May 28, 2016 I played my first game of the new edition of Deadzone last night. My Enforcers (mostly Reaper Bones IMEF, because I have them) vs. Megan's Marauders. I... did not fare well. (It was a well earned victory for Megan - she kept her mind on both the scenario objective and her secret objective, and properly trounced me. I was not defeated by poor die rolls, I was defeated because she played to her objectives, while I spent too much time trying to kill things.) I think that I liked the older version a bit better - I miss cover making it easier to Pin targets while making it harder to Wound targets. Play is faster in the new edition, and I can understand why Mantic changed things. In the old edition Blaze Away was primarily used to Pin and suppress, and occasionally wound - and folks pretty much just Blazed Away to hold the target down until a sniper could end it. Kind of realistic, and fun... for some people. But not everyone. And Marauders (Orx) used to be more than a bit overpowered. (Mantic has now changed the spelling back to Orcs, because Orx was just kind of silly.) Anyone else try Deadzone, either edition? 2 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
