Anyone uses minis for this game? Any pictures? Do they help increase the theme of the game?

There are a few images in the gallery of people using miniatures.




I could imagine them being a little annoying when doing move actions.

Yeah, they look cool, but I think I'd find them a hindrance. I say this as someone who happily uses minis in Elder Sign:



But in ES, the minis take the place of the character counters and serve that purpose, whereas in this game, the cards are still needed, so the minis just create an extra, non-functional layer of stuff.

I use some old practice painted space Marines of different colors as minis. We don't put them in the center of the table, rather we use them as token markers for what order you used that round. They are more entertaining than the cardboard disks but I don't really think they add that much to the game. It's a great use of some minis I painted years ago for practice though and I'm glad eveeytime they make it to the table.

I think using minis might look great, but would be a minor annoyance when moving Marines - and a huge hassle when moving a swarm of Genestealers.

If you want to add atmosphere, a really good Space Hulk-themed mat is the way to go, maybe with a few minis off at the side.

Well, playing with minis might be a bit unpractical, but they look pretty awesome...
