Sunday Night Warhammer

I don't normally post my weekly Warhammer games, but tonight's ended early and it was kind of special because it marked the end of the Beastmen/Chaos vs Empire campaign that Prof. Elf and I have been having for the last couple of months.  I am happy to report that the Empire has been reduced to anarchy and chaos!   Here are a couple of pictures that I like:

Turn One

The gangs make their entrances...

Saturday, 20 April 2013


Here is the set-up of my gang for the first turn, Mouse.

The Squat group and the pointman Reese McGee are 12 inches from the edge.   The Zoat (Bert) and the Beastman are 8inches from the edge.  Same with Ulysses and the ex-Scouts.  The rest are all 7 inches from my table edge.

The Ulysses Gang Takes Some Sun and Shares Some Stats

From left to right:  Tiny, Ace, Bert The Zoat, The Man From Gamma Gamma 4, Mad Dog Finnegan, Harrison Brock, Wide-Eyed Jake, Ulysses, Captain Krazac of the SLA, Mordecai Pank, Kern Proudbrow, Mauser, Jerry Grismak, Floyd Keif The LasCannon Gunner, and in front, Reese McGee.

The Stats:

Ulysses - Leader.  Two Bolt Pistols, Tastefully wearing Carapace Armour

                    M  WS  BS  S  T  W  I  A  Ld
                     4     6      6   4  4    3   6  3   9

 Addicted - Ulysses is a long-time user of Stim/Frenzon/Call it what you will.  How he is still alive only adds to his myth and galactic appeal.   At the beginning of each turn he must take a Ld test.  If failed the drugs really kick in - D6 roll:  evens - Stupidity, odds - Frenzy.  The effects last until the beginning of his next turn.

Mad Dog Finnegan - Loyal (very Loyal) Bodyguard.  Always in 2inches of Ulysses.  If Ulysses gets killed (WHAT!??! - Never gonna happen!!), Finnegan rolls on the Monster Reaction Table from Warhammer Fantasy.  (I love those reactions and I think this suits Finnegan very well.)
Finnegan dresses like Ulysses, wearing Carapace Armour.  He carries an Autogun.

                   M  WS  BS  S  T  W  I  A  Ld
                    4     4     4    4   4   1   4  1   8

Wide-eyed Jake - Another former Space Marine Scout.   Looks up to and is overawed by Ulysses and Finnegan.  Likes to over-compensate!   Bolter and Carapace Armour.

                   M  WS  BS  S  T  W  I  A  Ld
                    4     4     4    4   3   1   4  1    8

Bert The Zoat - The new addition to the gang.  Doesn't say much.  (Or really anything at all.)  Unknown to the others is his irrational fear of Orks!   Two Bolt Pistols.

                  M  WS  BS  S  T  W  I  A  Ld
                   7    5       3   4   5   3   5  2   10

Fears Orks.  Tests on 3D6 taking the HIGHEST two!

The Squats  ("Don't call us Squats!"):

Jerry Grismak - Autogun, Flak Armour and an attitude.

Mauser - Bolter, Flak Armour and cigar.

Floyd Keif The LasCannon Gunner - LasCannon and Flak Armour

All have the following profile:

                 M  WS  BS  S  T  W  I  A  Ld
                  3     4     3    3   4   1   2  1   9

All the Squats HATE Orks!

Captain Karzac of The SLA - Bolter, Flak Armour.  Capt. K is the leader of the Squat group.  They will only ever take orders from him and only ever use his Ld.  If the Captain is killed the other Squats have sworn to immediately flee/leave the battlefield - the Greater Cause of The SLA must always be The Prime Concern!

                 M  WS  BS  S  T  W  I  A  Ld
                  3     6     5    4   5   2   4  2   10

Tiny - "Me Tiny and Me's Big!  Har-Har"  Tiny loves repeating this.  It always cracks him up.  He and Ace are very tight.  If anything happens to Ace, Tiny will roll on the Monster Reaction Chart (Hey, any excuse to use the Monster Reaction Chart!)  Ripper Gun.

                M  WS  BS  S  T  W  I  A  Ld
                 6     4     3    5   5  3   4   2   8

Tiny Cause FEAR.

Ace - Very accident-prone.  Thankful that Tiny is always watching out for him.  Lasgun.

Rogue Trader Mordecai Pank -  Lasgun, Flak Armour.

Harrsion Brock - is a great pilot.  He can fly anything.  Lasgun and Flak Armour. 

All of the above three have the following profile:

                 M  WS  BS  S  T  W  I  A  Ld
                  4     3     3    3   3   1   3  1   7
Reese McGee -  Pointman.  Eagle eyes.   Autogun.

                 M  WS  BS  S  T  W  I  A  Ld
                  4     3      4   3   3   1   3  1   7

Kern Proudbrow -  It is all a giggle for Kern.  He loves the pose of being a pirate and an outlaw.   Laspistol and Shuriken Pistol.  Mesh Armour.

                M  WS  BS  S  T  W  I  A  Ld
                 5    3      3    3   3   1   4  1   8

The Man From Gamma Gamma 4 - An Adventurer.   A Hero.  A Mystery.  Laspistol and Knife.

               M  WS  BS  S  T  W  I  A  Ld
                4    5      5    4   4   2   5  2   8

And not pictured in the above group shot,

XB-Tpr Gaxt - Gaxt avoids the sun as much as he can.   Autogun and Flak armour.

                M  WS  BS  S  T  W  I  A  Ld
                 4     4     3    3  4    2   3  1   7

This is my gang, Mouse.

They are all hopped up and roaring for action!

A Table For Mouse

Hey, Hey Mouse,

  Here is my take on the table.  I've added a couple of things just for a touch of cover, and because I must always have lichen!

The Ulysses Gang is Coming...

It all started with an, "Oi!, give us some action..."

Ulysses, the specially enhanced Space Marine geneseed that went wrong.   Currently Wanted on more planets than most people can even name.

Finnegan, Ulysses' loyal bodyguard and confidant.

The Mysterious Man from Gamma Gamma 4.  Some even call him a Hero.

On the run from The Corporation's determined extermination of the magnificent Squat Liberation Army, the colourful Captain Karzac.

And Reese McGee, always the first on the scene.  Ulysses' trusted pointman.

There are more, but they will be met in the next exciting online game with Mouse of the great Tales From The Big Board.    Stay tuned...
