Game Night 24 Sept. West 37C – CODE 105

After watching Dredd the other night, I had the urge for a quick Sci Fi Police game.

CODE 105 – Active Shooters

An anonymous tip brought Central Enforcement to a midnight meeting between two mid-level gang bosses in industrial sector West 37C. Lieutenant Hiram Voss led a five-man Rapid Response Team, reinforced by Infiltrator and Razor specialists. Micro drones confirmed the identifications of ‘Butterface’ Krall of the G-Rips (mutant crew) and ‘Bear Bear’ Brown of the Voodoo Eights as they conferred in the shadow of a large storage tank. IR Sweeps also picked up signatures of additional gangers hidden among ConEx containers. (No honor among thieves…)

Both Krall and Brown were wanted for multiple homicides, arson, rape, human trafficking and narcotics distribution. Not the type to come quietly. “Detain if possible. Deadly Force authorized,” Voss radioed. The CE team fanned out and approached from the east.

Sept brushwork

Apologies – Been a while since I posted. I’m in the middle of a large leaded glass restoration, releasing my next book, and writing a ghost story. Plus family, church…

Aug/Sept brushwork. I’m seriously hoping CB makes some more Chaksas. Big fan, here.

Rumor is GW is coming out with a skirmish game. I’ve got an Ogryn and Commissar to bulk out these lads. Perhaps I’ll pick up a Sentinel or two to round this group out.
