I have to say, I like some of the model designs these guys are cooking up.

I hate the basing of the figures... or if not hate, strongly dislike. The attached disk that fits into the base is kind of silly. But that's a minor irritant overall. Their fig quality is pretty solid from what I've seen...

That being said most people could play that ruleset without actually buying any figures...

Corporation = Guard
Marauders = Orks
Enforcers = Marines

The Dwarves and Veer-myn are bit more unique, but still workable. THat game is really in it's infancy, and it seems a little odd that they're making a Skirmish version of it when they've already got Deadzone (which looks pretty nice).

Aside from that though, the concepts are cool, and they succeeded in doing what GW felt wasn't possible... making a SciFi Dwarf range that wasn't comical.
