Once it was here, the first thing I did was flip through to the various companies and look at the United States Marines. Pretty straight forward list. I can have some good flexibility, running anything from a bunch of riflemen to a tech'd out Steam List of Doom (R).
The next course of action was to read the actual rules to see if it was worth actually buying some models, or if this book would move to long term reserve on the book shelf. Happily, I liked what I saw. The rules look fun and simple. Terrain will be important, but it is for any skirmish game that has actual shooting.
Once I decided I liked the rules it was time to figure out some minis. North Star is not offering any for this company yet, but there are other models out there. Happily some helpful chap made a list of all of the VSF/Steam Punk manufacturers that he could find. Trolling through the list I found a few possibilities but none were really hitting the sweet spot for me. Then I found exactly what I was looking for.
