Today I went back to the local wargaming club--Wellington Warlords--and had the pleasure of being shown the Stargrave ropes by John, from over at The Daemon's Claw blog.
And because Stargrave is the sort of sci-fi skirmish game that allows us to play with whatever toys we want, we played it with Judge Dredd minis. I played a crew of Mega-city One Judges, and John played a crew of Sov Judges.
My crew lined up at the table edge:
The crew were:
Captain Judge Smith - Veteran
Lieutenant Judge Judy - Psionicist
This is the board after deployment:
I'm not going to do a battle report because I didn't write down what was going on, plus it's possible that John may post one on his blog, and his are always very good.
So a few random pics.
|My crew roster sheet.|
|Captain Smith and buddies going for a data crate.|
|Ruh-roh. Pirates start turning up each round.|
|John's Sov Judges host a BBQ.|
|BBQ to the left of us, BBQ to the right of us.|
|Lieutenant Judge Judy shot down from a long range gunner.|
|More pirates appearing.|
|I fire a smoke grenade to slow down the punishment I'm taking.|
|Yay! I rolled a 20 to hit.|
Oh, he rolled a 20 to save. Sigh.
|Me legging it... Um, a tactical evac after we had retrieved the data from two data crates.|
|Leaving the Sov Judges to deal with the pirate threat.|
|John's tactical withdrawl from the pirates.|
This was a lot of fun.
As mentioned in a previous blog, I've ordered Stargrave and Quarantine 37, so looking forward to those showing up. And I'll be going through my collection of 30mm sci-fi minis to see what I can muster for a crew of my own figures.
This is probably for sure going to replace Necromunda for me.
