Seeing the sad news of the seminal Harry Harrison's death, Andy and I agreed to do a memorial RT 'Stainless Steel Rat' game... Exactly *how* were going to do this i'm not quite sure but i'm sure it will involve mulitple heist locations, one player playing Jim and his associates and the other playing a special corp team waiting for him to make his move! If you have any good ideas to share before i write something up please do chip in here. My current thoughs are to use the cityfight boards. Three to five possible hesit locations that must have a guard in proximity every other turn and 30 to 40 'citizens' of which any one can be revealed to be the SSR at any time (only revealed once of course). The gm using the citezens to create interferance.

I've done my best to put in a brief narrative to accompany the pics from the last battle. I'm sure to have forgotten something as so much happened and it's over a week ago now! Anyway, rather than reposting all the pics i've edited the previous post to include the text, hope you like it.

Found time for a quick game last week of Block Mania with my friend Carrie, while not one of our normal gaming group Carrie is a keen gamer and took part in last years 'agri world' game. Pretty quick and fun game by all acounts which as ususal was utter carnage until the judges arrived to Stumm gas everyone. Most notable indidents were Samantha fox having a huge crack appear right in the center at her bottom and Buddy Holly having his entrances set on fire. currently looking for a copy of 'mega mania' if anyone has one they want to part with?
Right as I remember it here is the report of the battle. Curtis's radical Inquisitor is convinced that the hive mind can be countered in a less direct method than all out war and has arranged a meeting with zoat envoys (and their human assistants) on an arid research station world. Unbeknown to him his nemesis 'Inquisitor Hand' is hot on his trail and arrives on Fergus's World shortly afterwards. Curtis' warband consists of his Inquisitor (i never got his name), a squad of marines with a medic, a psyker and a few combat servitors. Andy's force consists of Inq hand, a death watch kill team, a rogue Trader and his displacer field wearing Jokaero assistant and an 'observer' from the Adeptus Mechanicus... a power armoured squat. Army leaders are all Major heros, inidvidual character heros and unit leaders champions. Servitors are just that.. servitors.

Great game of rogue trader this evening with Curtis Fell (ramshackle games) and Andy. Some utter craziness that only the original can provide including teleporting monkeys on fire, exploding floating fungus pods, hit and run drivers, alien hybrids, telepathic arguments and a killer virus! Post on the blog soon.

And here she is finished. I've started on her scurvy crew - two squads of space pirates made from a variety of Citadel plastic Chaos Marauders, Catachans and other bits and pieces, plus I have her trusty sidekick the Chaos Navigator ready to start soon, in the form of one of the new plastic Citadel Chaos Sorcerers.
