Necromunda over the weekend

I had Caleb "Smalls" Van Winkle and Andrew Finke come over for the weekend to play board games, including the every more popular Necromunda. We have had some fun, made some house rules, and generally shot the hell out of each other in a pretend post apocalyptic gang warfare setting.

Finke had his gang leader get captured, and on Sunday afternoon we cued up the "Rescue" scenario. It was the most fun game that I have had yet, and from the beginning we decided to take pics. It got bloody, thats for sure.

I started by deploying 6 sentries that move a random D3 inches and face a random directions. After Finke's guys are detected the alarm goes off and I am able to bring on an extra 2 guys per turn. Finke was climbing up the side of the prison building before I detected him and even with the numbers advantage on my side after a few turns, he was able to cut the prisoner loose and get him off the table edge. Finke took six of my guys out of action during the game. Two of my sentries got ambushed and taken out before they could sound the alarm. He couldn't take down my leader though - at least to keep him down. He must have gotten pinned (hit but not wounded) three or four times. Each time he passed his initiative test and popped up to kick some ass. It was super sweet.

Casket of Souls

Although I'm not sure about the effectiveness of this unit, certainly it has some of the coolest fluff in the TK book.

Necromunda Gang #1

This gang is themed after a recurrent class discussion amongst my 12th graders, which is that some day in the post-apocalyptic future, my history class will have to form a shotgun brigade to defend the Meskwaki Settlement from white intrusion and scavangers.

It was nice painting these up, as I have been enjoying Necromunda quite a bit recently. Now I have no excuses though - time to get back to skeletons.
