Now if you’re curious as to what exactly you’re getting in the box we’ve got you covered as well:

Lost Patrol $60


Moraz III – a deadly jungle world filled with danger and fear, populated by ferocious aliens who wait in the undergrowth to pounce on the unwary and mercilessly kill anyone who stumbles across them. Even the plant life itself is malignant here, constantly twisting and growing in unnatural ways to trap its prey.

A dropship containing vitally important surveillance files has crash landed on this hostile planet. It’s up to you and your squad of Space Marine Scouts to retrieve these files, activate the dropship, and hopefully escape with your lives.

A fun and compelling two-player challenge, Lost Patrol is a boxed game set on a hostile jungle world full of sinister hidden danger! Players assume the roles of a Space Marines Scout squad and a fierce swarm of cunning Genestealers eager to end their lives. The Genestealers of Moraz III have every advantage on their home turf and will make every attempt to quickly despatch the human intruders.

The Scouts will almost certainly all die. But how far can you get? Will you ever see the drop pod tile? And each game becomes a challenge to try and get further – and because you can turn games around in 10 minutes when you get into it, you can play loads of it, and swap sides and make it a competition with your mate.

Inside the box, you’ll find five Space Marine Scouts, twelve Genestealers, six Infestations (the markers of imminent Genestealer appearance),thirty hex tiles and the full rules for play.

Pre-Orders are out not. Lost Patrol Ships June 18th!

    It’s on the GW store grab it now

  • Darth Bumbles

    I wonder if your could add rules for fully armoured Astartes, and Lictors.
    It might be the “quick and fun” option for 40k (I know we used to play 40k using the old Space Crusade board, inches became tiles etc.

  • GameOgre

    $60 is easier on the wallet than the $150+ most GW board games have been going for but looking at what you get it still seems expensive for the contents.
