How to start Deadzone

Deadzone is fast paced sci-fi miniature skirmish game set is a corporate dystopian galaxy. Played on a 2′ x 2′ area with an integrated terrain system, Deadzones rules are simple to learn and very intuitive. The game rewards players for using tactics in the game as much as their collection of miniatures.

The two books you need to play Deadzone are the Rulebook and the force list. The rules for all ten factions are contained within the force list book. Sixteen scenarios and a campaign system are included in the rulebook.

The first decision to make is whether to get the two player starter set or the main rulebook.

If you are starting Deadzone this set is perfect, it contains the rules, force lists, counters and dice that you need to run the game. As well as a play mat, terrain and starting models for two factions, the Veer-Myn and the Corporate Marines of the GCPS. On the reverse of the play mat is a tutorial map for introductory play, which is great for first time players.

The next stage is to get paints, glue and tools to assemble and paint your collection. The terrain assembly is very intuitive and supports multiple build types. The troopers themselves vary in complexity from the basic soldiers to the characters and monsters. There are detailed instructions for building these models contained in the box and if you get really stuck or this is your first time pop in and ask.

The alternative is to buy the Rulebook set.

The Rulebook Set is the rulebook, force List and counters from the boxed set above. This is perfect if you are upgrading from the previous version of the game, or if you would prefer a different faction from those included in the starter set. Of course to play you will need models for your chosen faction, command dice, D8s and terrain. All of which are available from the store.
