You might have noticed the heat this summer is quite severe so Jon added a taste of it to the campaign to increase the immersive power. Before the games, some gangers would go missing, taken by the heat or some would even become crazy, acting weird(er) to the point of attacking their own friends !
Game 1 : Stand Off
For my first game, the Dustfarers would be facing Colin's psyker gang so I tried to come up with a good positionning for my key elements like the Jezzail sniper and the heavy stubber.
After that I tried to keep the rest of the model in a sufficiently sizeable group to protect them.
Colin had decided to give special items and weapons to represent the psychic abilities of his psykers and the smoke screen really helped him progress without getting shot by my scouts.
I finally bottled out, with far more casualties than my opponent...
Game 2 : Looters
The heat did take out 3 fighters on each side whiuch wasn't exactly the best position to be in. The reinforcements would have to make it fast !
My sniper with his long lasgun was holdging the best position, covering a good deal of the table which helped him at least pin most threats.
Game 3 : Sabotage
In the end, the battle was hard fought, I finally bottled out and since we had exceeded the time limit for quite a while we called it a draw although I had technically won more Victory points, had the game lasted a bit though, I would have been wiped so it seemed fair to shank hands on that although the small difference made Curis's team win in the end !
What happened next was history and a load of fun so now I'm back, I should try and harness all that enery and ideas for good projects and I do have quite a few in mind !
