I preordered the Dark Age: Apocalypse book. Is that the new Edition? The forcelist I assume would be all the army list. Tempted to pick up another starter to rope in some more players.
Just a question Hutch: How do you think the system play? I'm kinda reminded of Malifaux with dice and more focused on close combat.
Yes the Apocalypse Book is the latest newly released book and the force list book is army lists although I think they have sample army lists on their site.
The system is quick play but cant compare it to Malifaux as I have only played one game of Malifaux and it didn't have much combat in it. In fact I cant think of any game similar to Dark-Age that I could compare it to
Basically each figure has a number of action points that they can use for melee / shooting / movement etc in any order they like. It has a mix of high tech and very low tech stuff but most things have a chance of malfunctioning. The planet has been all but abandoned and all knowledge to make and repair things has been lost.
Each of the fractions play very differently and each have their own strengths and weaknesses. Its set in a world of disrepair where its survival of the fittest and the week become the prey.
Happy to have a game whenever your ready
