Only two players this week.
Kicked off with:
PH played as the thing that’s “the most green”. Also known as the Kraken.
MC played as the Bookie Woogie from the Halloween expansion.
With the simple rules quickly explained the mano e mano battle for Tokyo commenced. MC couldn’t roll anything of any merit. PH couldn’t stop rolling 3s. The game concluded with PH attaining 20 points with MC not far behind.
Colt Express rolled into play next.
MC played the mysterious Ghost while PH played the thieving Cheyenne. Ghost had no problems hitting a lady and did so very successfully too. At game end, neither player managed to get hold of one of the two available lockboxes. Ghost ended up with the most money, having removed 2 gems from Cheyenne.
Following on from this, the Ultramarines stormed the a space hulk in:
MC played the part of the gun-ho Space Marines whilst PH took on the role of the sinister forces of Chaos. The first mission was played. From the moment the boarding craft doors opened, the Space Marines were set upon by hoards of alien nasties who put up a resistance akin to warm butter. The Secondary Objective Android was a complete pushover as was the heavy weapon Chaos Marine and the Chaos Marine Commander.
Things were looking good until a Genestealer made an appearance. The Ultramarine with the basic bolter was torn apart first, closely followed by the autocannon dude.
Despite a couple of decimating shots by the plasma rifle guy, the rocket launcher looney fell next. Finally the Genestealer fell to the frantic hackings of the sword wielding Ultramarine Commander.
The determined duo pushed on into a room holding the two Chaos Marines and a couple of Orcs.
A weapons malfunction saw the plasma rifle guy have to switch for a bolter just before the Dreadnaught joined the fray.
Having used a handy medkit, the Commander dealt sword-swishing battle against the superior numbers whilst his companion in combat turn tail and ran screaming back to the landing craft. Despite taking a few of the enemy down, the Commander soon fell.
Leaving the Dreadnaught behind, the remaining hoard chased down the spineless Ultramarine hoping that another Genestealer would emerge from wherever it is they emerge. It didn’t and the last surviving Ultramarine dove back into the landing craft and to safety.
Final score: MC: 52, PH: 65
