Lost Patrol

In their attempt to give stores more advance notice of new products, rather than the 1-2 weeks we get now, GW sent out this notice about their Space Hulk variant Lost Patrol about a month before the release. I rather think they are using this as justification for not giving us advance notice:  "See, we gave you information about the game a month early and sales were poor. Our way is still best."

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 drop-ship 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.
This game will be available to pre-order from 11th June 2016. 
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 Marine 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? Each game becomes a challenge to try and get further – and because you can play a game in  about 10 minutes- you can play loads of it, and swap sides and make it a competition with your friends!
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.
