New Space Marines and Clones vs. Orks and Godzilla

The Kid had a great idea for a game involving a Space Marine and Clone alliance vs. Rogue Trader Orks.  Somehow Godzilla also joined the mix.

Unfortunately, the Ork pictures didn't turn out.  Maybe because the Orks were defeated.   My Rogue Trader Orks are very sensitive about those kind of things.

We are Space Dwarves!

A couple days ago I gave some Space Dwarves some air.   (I don't think they like to be called Squats.)

They're all hopped up about some Stargrunt II soon...

Darth Vader Has Been Captured!

Yes, it is true, Darth Vader has been captured!  I saw it with my own eyes.

It all started because I was obsessing about Stargrunt II again.  Suddenly I was in the garage.  Princess Leia appeared on the table leading three squads of Rebel soldiers.  Across the way Darth and three squads of Stormtroopers are seen.  I roll for qualities:  Rebels D8/Arm.D6/LV1, Imperial D10/ArmD8/LV3, Characters D12.   Instead of the paper markers for Confidence and Leadership messing up the table, I use droids and pebbles.  For Suppression, I turn the Squad Command figure around.  If the unit receives a second suppression the SAW trooper is also turned.   Anyway, Stargrunt II!  Yeah!  A little slow on the Fire Resolution, but very enjoyable. 

Could this be the end of the Empire?

Technical Time

Two Rebel groups turn and battle each other for the prize of entering the last major city still in Government hands.  Rules were AK47 Reloaded slightly modified to suit the situation.  Really the game was just a fun excuse for Private D and I to play with a whole lot of technicals.

Rebellion in the Forest

Had a great fantasy game with Private D. on the weekend.   Wood Elf vs. Wood Elf.  I really like the idea of civil wars in a fantasy realm for some reason.  I am planning a major Dwarf civil war campaign for the Fall.  Anyway, in the Wood Elf game, several bands of disgruntled Wardancers were easily swayed by two power hungry Wood Elf nobles to rebel against the lawful eternal rule of Orion and Queen Ariel.

But the Rebellion was squashed!!  Now life in the Forests of Loren can return to normal.

Kashyyyk again

With phase one of the transformation of the garage from a rat colony to a gamesroom sort of done, it was time to let loose the minis.  First games were all Star Wars ones with The Kid, including this great return to Kashyyyk blast.

      The Droids advance.

      The Jedis gather on the hill.  The clones await order 66.

     Wookies in action!

      Mace does his thing to poor Super Battle Droids again.

Count Dooku leads the surviving Supers against Shaak Ti.                                                      

     Count Dooku and Eeth Koth battle it out.

     General Grievous jumps in to try and finish what Dooku started.

Although in the end Kashyyyk is saved.  Arrrrrrr.  Arrrrrruuuu.
