A thousand thanks to everyone who’s taken their hard-earned cash and purchased my books, then taken their time to actually read them. I’m eternally grateful.
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.
So I’m getting a little jealous of the camera on my buddy’s phone. And I lost this time, which rubs salt in the wound. It’s kinda pissing me off.
OK, got that out of the way.
Any recommendations on a decent digital camera for minis?
All our recent games have been straight up brawls, what with my friend wrapping his head around game mechanics and familiarizing with his Haqq force. So there’s not much narrative for a Bat-Rep. Unless you count, “Advance to contact, then slug it out.” He won this game using his rocket launcher specialist to pop in and destroy the Comms relay station.
Well that pic-swipe from another site didn’t work out. Sorry.
Here are some shots from STALKER-themed games.
If you’ve never played the STALKER PC games, I think you’re missing out. They’re slow burn, sandlot, RPG-type shooters set in Chernobyl. Moody, exotic, (in a barren, radiated sort of way) with loads of automatic weapons.
A root canal kept me from creating any kind of narrative for a Bet Rep, but here are pix from latest game night. Bloodied my friend’s Haqq force. It was a close battle with hefty body count. The Haqq pulled off a win first time out though.
Once again we used out “Cleared To Engage” house rules that let you slot in any figs. nothing new or deep, they’re designed for fast, fun, pick-up games.
