|Start of the game (and only picture I took)|
With not much terrain the Tyranids launched themselves at the Space Marines. I was not expecting much out of the game other than getting familiar with the rules. However, the game played well with the Space Marines getting forced back with each subsequent wave of attacks which treated to push them off the board. The game ended up as a bit of a close run thing for the Space Marines. If I had understood the rules better I suspect the victory would have been reversed with the Tyranids forcing the Marines off the table.
I will definitely be using these rules again. They are designed for bug hunt situations, but can be tailored for man vs man or man vs machine game, and come with a few suggestions in the back of the rules on how to approach this.
