Does anyone know who the dude of the front of the box is? Doesn't seem to be human

I always assumed it was inspired by the cover art for the video game Crysis.



In fact, because of the box cover art, and the fact that the game had 'Cry' in the title, I initially thought it was meant as a board game set in that same universe.

The game had several different names before they settled on Cry Havoc.

I think it's just variation on the Halo guy or a random artwork to make it look cool / videogame'y.

It sucks that the Cover seems to have nothing to do with the game. I really like both, but why put such artwork on the box, if there is no such character inside? He looks way cooler than the generic Space Marines the humans have. I'm hoping a future expansion picks up the artwork and includes the character, even if it is just a battle card the humans have to upgrade their Marines.

I conceive him/her as a Human wearing specialized battle armor.

whistle Its odd that they did all kinds of world building but didn't put much of it into the rules in the background section, apparently. Like the friggin' name of the planet (as I've said elsewhere).
