Yes it was a good game :)

All my technicians were safely extracted off planet and the rebels and aliens dealt with. Company property with a substantial dollar value was recovered and only a few (and I know you'll excuse me for being blunt here) 'grunts' accepted early retirement at the hands of the enemy.
I will of course be sending a memo explaining their deaths to the families which will detail exactly why they forfeited their Company pension rights during the operation. Must remember to CC HR so they can bring some replacements online.

 lol Priceless.

I am not much of a SciFi gamer but this board, the game and the minis look like a game worth a considerable travel expense.

Very nice pictures of a real eye catcher!
A pity I did not get to play on it!

The minis are especially awesome!

They were even better in the metal - and the sculpting of the clothes on the civillians is ...  :o

Wonderful photos. :-*

And I second Captain Bloods proposal that Silent Invader is a genius. :)

Can't wait for my turn to play the game soon. Better get building more terrain tiles eh Steve ;)

We left a female rebel out on the planet surface. A team will be dispatched in a day or two to see if she has become eligible for retrieval.

That's the spirit  :)

It has to be said that Matakishi was more Burke-like than Burke in the game I played. Definately a Company man.  >:D

I concur! Very well done (especially for a native of Essex with an Australian accent).

As always with a skilfully executed project I find my self wanting to copy it... oh dread!  lol

Thanks for all the comments.  :D

It was the game's first time out so lots of lessons learned, more terrain to make, more aliens to assemble, dropship to finish, furniture to paint, blood markers to splatter.........  :o

Gorgeous looking setting up, I am impressed and jealous.  What rules ended up being used?

Thanks all!

What rules ended up being used?

My own: long story short, I hate learning rules so have settled on one engine for the various periods I play.  These are the first set finished and now they've been played they are no longer finished as I have  a few more changes to make!  :o

I demand you have a participation game at Salute 2012! ;)

But I'll be working........ ;)

 lol Be warned it bounces about a bit as various ideas were scrapped.
