It's for those people who enjoy playing the Doom 3 board game and all those Dungeon-crawler board games that come with lots of plastic figures and scenery pieces that you can build a maze out of. A lot of these board games are kind of similar to Games Workshop's old 'Space Hulk' Game or 'TSR's Dungeon', much like Legions of Steel or Mutant Chronicles was in the 90's.

The game is not out yet but you can find out more(they have samples of the minis and cards to look at to see how it works) here:

Gears of War is also probably going to be a clix game. I guess since the StarWars game died they need new licenses for that stuff.
