Now at Target, too.

So, a single space marine against a swarm of Tyranids? Doesn't sound like that much fun…

A lone Marine is a dead Marine.

Yeah, on first glance it seems like not much fun. But then, Ogre is fun, and it's one against many, too. So it depends on the one.

Finally a Space Marine worthy of the lore!

Yeah, I picked it up. It is extremely limited with 4 scenarios on two maps. You learn the basics of Warhammer, but it is really not much to speak of.

You do get some nice minis, but as a game it is played and done in less time than it takes to assemble the minis.

I have the game for the cheap miniatures. That said, the game is a very simple version of the full 40K rules. It would be a great start for a non gamer to learn 40K

They should add a wounded Guardsman, that needs to be protected as a heroic incentive and call it 'Emperor Protects'.

You are probably thinking of Space Hulk.

Yeah, that's it. Have to swing by Target and have a look ? If it's like Space Hulk, one marine will be a pretty short game ? :0

Can't tell the scale, but the pics show 22 termagants (no genestealers…)
