From what I have seen at Essen last year you can think of them as pawns.

That's unfortunate, but I don't see why you're telling us.

Jan_Phil there will be minis inside (crew members and intruders), so yes - it will be a miniatures game

Cool. Glad to hear there will be minis. Sounds like a wonderfully atmospheric game.

Edit: I do hope, though, that the game miniatures will not require assembly. That's been a trend I'm not a fan of in boardgames.

A trend? I haven't seen minis assembly in board games for years. The only game I can remember is Shadows of Brimstone, but that's really an exception to the rule.

But answering: 99% sure there will be no assembly (judging from minis from TWoM).

I'll bet he's referring to the fact that Games Workshop recently started making Board Games again and their minis are generally assembly-required, so there have been more than in recent years, but its all from one publisher so I'd hardly call that a trend.

I *think* I heard that even GW games are moving to push-to-fit so no glue required, although I don't own any so can't confirm this.

I favor Euros, but I like pretty much all games.

Kingdom Death: Monster, and they're much better for it.

there's a more invested and immersive feel when 3D miniatures are involved. I've been getting pretty turned off by flat cardboard cutout to represent "me"

Total opposite for me, miniatures are hiking the prices and for me they add very little. Most are quite ugly unpainted give me good illustration on a chit any day.
