Aliens: Assets and Hazards Expansion Review. Gale Force Nine

Look Man I only need to know one thing, where they are!. Here is my quick look at the Assets and Hazards Expansion for the Aliens: Another Glorious Day in the Corp Survival combat game from Gale Force NIne.

Acid for Blood! A great addition to an already excellent game!

Adding an extra layer of realisim to your games of Aliens: Another Glorious Day in the Corps, the Assets and Hazards set features a whole host of items to deck out your game boards with and includes

6 x Computer Consoles
2 x Smart Sentry Guns
8 x Alien Eggs
2 x Facehuggers
16 x Wayland-Yutani Containers

Each of the pieces is moulded in hard styrene plastic and consists of two sprues that simply form the scatter when assembled. The containers feature the Wayland-Yutani logo eblazened on them, and the consoles can very easily be painted up to match those found in the movie.

The Alien Eggs go together without any issues or problems, but the Facehugger may need a little coaxing to get it to stand upright on its tail.

Finally rounding out the box are two Remote Sentry Guns that can be used in the game, and were a feature of the James Camerons Directors Cut of Aliens, sadly removed from the general theatrical release. The guns pose no issues when assembling and even the most novice of gamers could quite easily put the assets and hazards together in no time at all.

In space no one can hear you boardgame!

It was announced by Gale Force Nine recently that they are releasing all of the miniatures from the game to purchase seperatly, including a set of xenomorphs, the Alien Queen, P-5000 Powerloader and all of the marines and civilians from the core set and Ultimate Badasses expansion. This should come as great news to those who are wishing to expand the game beyond its normal lifespan or use them for roleplaying with Free League Publishings excellent Alien roleplaying game. If I can get my hands on them I will review them of course.
