Star Wars-Fistful of Lead: Galactic Heroes

The place: Mos Espa, a tiny outpost on the backwater planet of Tatooine. A place known for smuggling and criminal enterprise. A hive of scum and villainy.
The plan: Jabba the Hutt has recently acquired some hyper fuel from smuggler Lando Calrissian. Some say stole. He's looking to unload it to an up and comer in the criminal underworld. A character known as Maul.
Jabba has hired some extra muscle form Boba Fett.
Looking to get the fuel back, probably to buy a floating mining colony, is Lando. And then there's the Empire.....

 Some natives show up to investigate.
 Recently acquired droids

Boba Fett sets up shop.
 Jabba arrives with the fuel.
 Check out the cape, baby.
 First blood. The Stormtroopers stick to the script and go down first.

 Greedo. Takes on the stormtroopers without backup. He didn't shoot first.
 Shoddy ammo from some Jaws left Jabba's crew in a bad place.

 Maul shows up. Gets dropped before he does anything.
 The Empire seizes the fuel.
 How many Stormtroopers does it take to get a password? Try "DARTHROXX" all caps.
We played with the full rules. Traits for everyone. Nine players! And it flowed great. 2.5 hours total.
The Tusken's were great spoilers. They held up the Crimson Dawn forces. That left Lando and Jabba to fight the Empire alone. They were outgunned, but Lando dropped a few before he had to withdraw.
All the figs were provided by Basement General Steve, I did the terrain. Some scratch, some bought.
All in all, a great outing for the rules.
My cards arrived, of course, the next day....

Looks great! I can't wait for my rules when I keep seeing these games on your blog! What's that deck you were using?


Unknown said...

That was me John Leahy.

Just used the Horse & Musket one for now.

Hi, sorry I meant the character cards.


BaronVonJ said...

Just ones I made. They'll be blank ones in the rules, and possibly as a free download on the store.

At the risk of sounding ignorant, what miniatures are these?

BaronVonJ said...

Mix of Imperial Assault and a few old Wizards of the Coast.

Looks great, I’m going to be running a game of this at a mini con in Manchester (uk) in November - the troop cards are really nice, do you have a template I could use?
