A group of the Basement of Heaped Miniature regulars played this game at Parker Banner Kent and Wayne in Cornelius before the regularly scheduled Catawba gamers game day. We used the Disposeable Heroes rules and the still under development Terminator rules Chuckaroobob has been working on. We had random deployment and it made an interesting game.

Yeah, I'm still not happy with the Terminators. Maybe we should try less armor but more wounds, that way small arms would have more effect, and the Marines wouldn't be dependent on missiles.

Still, it was a fun game!
