|This sums up pretty well the arena game we had last night|
Our final event was "Lord of the Spire". This was a scenario from the Outlanders book that was straight out of an 80's sci-fi movie (a lot of the tropes in Necromunda are from 80's sci-fi). Each team was thrust into an arena to fight in front of thousands of underhivers.
They had to protect their base from attackers first and foremost - the other gangs can shoot at your base, hit a marker, and one of your gangers drops down a chute into a sump pit. Anytime a ganger was taken out of action they'd be replaced by another ganger who came up through a hole in the floor. Tag!
|Delaques prepare to run to the tower!|
|A Van Saar heavy covers the tower|
This was a super-fun old school event. I don't think I've laughed as much during a wargame in a year as I did last night. It wasn't super competitive serious business; it was a narrative event that allowed us to show off our cool painted minis and have some fun.
|Scalies approach the tower!|
|Dave was put down by an autogun shot at the top of the tower. He almost survived and stood up to get the loot. It was so close. This was one of a number of epic happenings during the game! Geneguard's leader even died after the game!|
My Mantis Warrior Librarian I've been working on creating this week:
|I used a Dark Angel head to create a psychic hood. In the Mantis Warrior stories in Warrior Brood by C.S. Goto and the Legends of the Space Marines stories it talks about MW librarians being hooded like this.|
|They also use force weapons that are bladed on both ends. I used a rhino front-spiky thing to create these. I put him on a 'hive' base because they've been fighting Tyranids for a long time.|
