Crossing the Bridge - Norman Style

I played a second crossing the bridge game with Alan. I used my backup warband, who are not as powerful as the main warbands because they have not played in many games. I also don't have banishment so I can't just blast the Hrut off the table. However I do have crossbows. Here is my warband, ready for the off. Here is Alan's Crew on the other side. In the first Wizard phase, Alan used his gloves of casting to cast Banishment and rolled a 20. This demolished all the Hrut down his side of the table. After that Alan's wizard was left blowing on his now smoking gloves. We advance forwards leapfrogging past the crossbowmen while they lay down a suppressing fire. Gisborne and one of the infantrymen form the rear guard because a wraith showed up behind me. Alan summoned a worm when he picked up a treasure. The worm came over the bridge. The worm really does look like a demonic electric shaver. A dimensional barrier splits Alan's party. His templar bashes a Hrut and it blin

Frostgrave, crossing the bridge

 After blowing up the dimensional anchors, or in my case watching on the wrong side of the map while Zane and Thomas did it. We had to race across a dimensional bridge to destroy the anchors in the universe of the Red King. Richard and I ended up running for the same bridge. Here is my warband. We now have Brother Michael the Apothecary and Lassie the Wardog that we found and recruited from other warbands that had been less fortunate than us. We got our illusionary warrior and a zombie. Both Richard and I can cast Banishment so after the first Wizard phases there were only a couple of Hrut left. Her is Richards traveling circus. Richards team starts pushing down the flank We have an illusionary soldier fighting a Hrut while everyone moves up. The white line is a dimensional barrier that we can't cross. A Hrut warrior takes some damage and appears next to the treasure. Stilltrying to get rid of the Hrut. it ends up taking some more damage and bouncing right next to my Apprentice. Ri

Stargrave - Solo bug hunt

I tried out a game of Stargrave, using the bounty hunter solo expansion. I used a Colonial Marines crew led by Veteran Sergeant Apone with Xenobiological advice from Ripley. The crew were tasked with clearing out a Xenomorph infestation in an abandoned colony. Can the hero's of Hadley's Hope complete their mission or will they become unwilling members of the hive? Carter Burke wants samples "those would be worth millions to the bioweapons division". So we have to collect samples from the queen to get the full bounty. The drones start moving towards the interlopers within their hive. Protect the Queen, gather hosts. More drones start moving to flank the attackers. The Marines advance out of the M577 APC into the complex. I've got movement, the marines take up a position in the doorway. The Drones scuttle forwards into the rooms, towards the tasty humans. The Drones stalk forward in search of prey. Contact front, hssssssssssss. The Marines have taken up defensive po
