– Ripley, you‘ve blown the transaxle! You‘re just grinding metal! – Come on, ease down. Ease down.
Another bug hunt wouldn’t be the same without something for your badass USCM to get around in and hidden away on the pre-orders page of the Aliens board game is this wee gem
The M577 Armoured Personal Carrier or APC was one of the highlights of the action-packed movie Aliens and thanks to the Get Away from Her You B***H expansion we got the rules to use them in the excellent Another Glorious Day in the Corps. While we did get a really neat 2d card stock board for the APC, it kind of took away the immersion that we got with the miniatures and scatter terrain from the Assets and Hazards expansion.
Now it looks very likely that the much loved M577 APC is coming soon according to the Gale Force 9/Flames of War webstore.
The blurb on the preorder states the following
ALIENS 09 Aliens: “Marine APC “Upgrade your experience of Aliens: Another Glorious Day in the Corps with this model of the Iconic APC. Some assembly required item does not come pre-painted. Image with other miniatures is to demonstrate scale. Please note that delivery of the APC may take up to 120 days from the time of ordering.
Aliens Another Glorious Day in the Corps is an outstanding game, fast and fun with all the action from the movies right in your own home or games club and its really good to see that Gale Force 9 are carrying on with supporting this excellent game. As well as the Marine APC all of the other miniatures from the core game and its two expansions (Aliens: Get Away from Her You B***H and Ultimate Badasses) have now been released as stand-alone models to allow you to expand your marine forces, add more xenomorphs and get extra mileage from an already fantastic game.
Look out for my review of these products just as soon as I am able to get my hands on them, until then head on over to the GF9 webstore and preorder your APC you know it makes sense. Stay Frosty!
