Alien Encounters Bounty is a science-fiction miniatures game set in the distant future of a galaxy shattered by greed. AE Bounty lets players build crews of pirates, mercenaries or bounty hunters, equip them with a variety of deadly weapons and useful gear and then fight against other crews looking to score big as dregs of the galaxy. Players use a flexible points-free crew creation system to build their forces, selecting units, heroes, aliens and gear to create a powerful force they can use against other players. Players can mix and match the various alien races and fully customize the weapons and equipment of their units, giving players countless options from which to construct their crew. Scenarios of AE Bounty can take place anywhere the players' imagination can take them, from the surface of a harsh and forbidding planet, to the corridors and compartments of a starship deep in space. Players can choose t only from a wide selection of scenarios but also the locale where these battles are fought, making each scenario unique. The game is intended for use with the Darkson Designs line of AE Bounty 'true' 28mm models but is compatible with any 1/48 scale models or miniatures.
