Those Cursed Rebels - Drat Drat and Double Drat.

Do bionics come with a money back guarantee? Alan and I tried out a game of Frost Grave but slightly adapted to a science fiction setting. The idea of a wizard leading a band of followers on a stealth mission sounds perfect for a Star Wars setting. I have some of the Imperial Asault models so I painted up a band of Empire themed models led by Darth Vader. Alan fielded a force of Weyland Yutani commandos who had been hired by a Rogue Trader, unless Alan's wizard was on the way to a fancy dress ball. Here are my Imperial Assault models, the Core Space models are the wandering monsters and the giant worm is from Warlord games. Here are my team ready to start, having emerged from their airlock. Turn 2 and we have advanced through the airlock. Darth Vader has used his force powers to move the treasure towards him. Darth's henchman and his team move towards the other side.

Here is Bosk and some other reprobates, the droids are evil imperial droids.

Its nice to see members using the club facilities to enhance their games. Here is an overview of our game table. We got to use one of the clubs new mats. Most of the terrain is mine, supplemented by some of Alan's and some of the club's trees. This table depicts a group of survivors who have broken down in a bad part of town (there is a good part?) while getting the parts and fixing their truck some zombies have approached. Here are a couple of side views of the table. We decided to play using our NZ months for the seasons rather than the US months from the book. Appropriately we rolled up rain so visibility was limited to 18" cutting down any long
