Mongoose sends boxes of ugly bugs into distribution

Seriously. Mean, ugly, nasty, and, er, tall. I’d rather face a bunch of Genestealers than a pack of these. So: recall that this is the Andy Chambers-designed brand new Starship Troopers minis game. After a long time of talk and no action, distributors have it and it should be in US shops this week. That starter box looks to set up a situation with plenty of drama, but it isn’t clear how broadly this game can develop with essentially just two factions. There’s a promo animation, which does not quite top our old Battle Cattle video at Gamers, but comes close.
