Our heroes had managed to escape the clutches of Dr. Terror, fleeing into the depths of Terror Island's suffocating jungle, only to encounter Turu the Terrible!
There were 8 players (I know, right?) involved in this massive Pulp Alley game. Three players took the role of Good Guys, Dutch Oven and his Fearless Five
Roxy Rocket and the Ready Men
and Rip Daring, Man of Action.
Three controlled the Baddies, and two the Neutral Natives and Turu, a Terror-catyl.
There were 7 Plot points to accommodate the large number of players. Last episode, Pork Chop, orphan ally of Rip Daring, had escaped into the jungle with the Super Soldier formula. The canister was nabbed by the winged Turu and taken to his nice above the waterfall. Pork Chop was hidden behind the waterfall as another Plot Point. There was a dingy down river to get our heroes off the island, a native idol, a creepy old hermit and various supplies. All which took a terrible toll on anyone trying to use them.
The players were placed good guy-bad guy-neutral around the 6 x 4 table. Oh how the mayhem ensued!
Precious, the Alligator went straight for a Plot Point only to realize she didn't have hands. Oh well, she'll just tear apart some good guys instead. One of her handlers, Ugly Pierre, a mere Ally, somehow survived the combined firepower of Rip's crew. A new Juan Jorge? (see last episode).
Dutch's faction took on Turu and the Natives. Only Dutch escaped.
Rip Daring, was cut to pieces by Dr Terror and his minions, his pal Bobo the chimp, crushed under a temple trap. Of Rip's daring League, only Pork Chop made it.
Pork Chop was assailed by three attackers, one by one they fell to his patented "kick to the nuts" technique.
Much fun was had. We have a few changes to speed things up even more with this many players. Not the fault of the rules, it wasn't made for so many.
We had to stop due to time. The Bad Guys got most of the Plot Points but the Good guys have found a way off the island.
Sat tuned for the next episode....
Lieutenant Daniel Dulle and his squad from the 95th have been tasked with blowing up the bridge at Villa Verde to cover the retreating flank of the army. Normally this would be a job for the Royal Engineers, but a group of French dragoons are in hot pursuit.
This is a scenario for Fistful of Lead: Horse & Musket available from Wargames Vault or Wiley Games
Yes, we have been playing games, but I've been behind on the posts due to the Kickstarter. My work allows a few creative renewal days a year, so I stayed home Friday and painting from another Kickstarter.
Greenskin Wars Hobgoblins.
And their smaller cousins.
These are some of the plastic Heavy Gear minis. I painted up some to use for Galactic heroes. I guy asked me online if you could use GH for giant robots/anime type games. Why not?
Thursday we had a game of Dust Tactics. Some day, in the far future, when I have an airbrush again, I'll paint these bad boys. It's a great system and line of minis. Wish I had more.
Back to work on my KS.
Kickstarter Success! Our Fistful of Lead: Galactic heroes Kickstarter is fully funded and then some. Thanks to our 134 backers and everybody else who made this possible. Set for delivery in September. Now the real work starts.
