Here is an interesting take on one off the age old problems off tabletop games. I don’t like what’s in the starter box set, but it’s nearly always the cheapest way to get started in the game.
Fallen Frontiers have come up with a novel solution to this problem. If you back the reboot kickstarter you can choose which forces you want to receive in your starter set.
So a lot more choice personally I am very tempted with the Sayx and the harvesters.
The project is fully funded so now any pledges will go to unlocking more cool stuff. I had hoped to get hold off a mini to see the quality but so far the renders and pictures look like the solid foundation of a new game.
