Bad day at White Water (IHMN)

 Today we played the Bring him back alive  scenario for IHMN, my mate Alec used the Texas Rangers and i used my Lords of light
 Father Abraham was the target he was trying to escape  justice and being hunted by the forced of good for some despicable deed and  stole a raft from the White water mining encampment, we used Innocent  bystander complication and  the raft moved by random up and down the river 
 Alec laid the table out and  again enjoyed it  as much as the game some times

 The Texas Rangers from the HVF book 
 My Lords of light 
 the mine
 I believe i have never used this building till today for about 8-10 years
 The LOL move taking cover from superior numbers and fire power
 The rangers advance and fan out
 Rifles ready and the use of cover to aid them
 the Rangers make a solid advance and  see the  Reverend on the raft
 A fire fight begins and ducking and shooting
 Alec contemplate his  game....
 Una using poor Pedro to no avail as cover a ranger shoots the poor creature (it was a stunt donkey and was not harmed)
 Wild tries to out flank the  firepower but falls dead to a Ranger
 Captain Smith grabs the hunted man off the raft dodging bullets but some innocents are hit
 matter worse as more appear to the sound of gunfire
 Una charges and  take out a Ranger as she is mobbed
 Dr Thanos emerges to gun fire is is knocked down more bystanders take hits
 Klondike Kate makes use of her  marksmanship and hunting rifle
 A weasel  dart across the river 
 a blow to the head knocks Una down
 Captain smith struggles with the captive as the Weasel dives into the  Frey it shakes and holds them fast
 Wolff crosses the river and takes out a Ranger
 Una rises to only be struck down again this time  for good
 3 rangers are now free to  help the  arrest
 The weasel  rips apart one of the Rangers and continues to harass Smith
 Kate shoots and drops a chosen 

 Wolff continues his fight with the rangers taking one down
 The rangers start to fail back as move bystanders are hit in the fierce battle
 The LOL cross the river to engage the rangers
 the Reverend is dragged by 3 rangers to the table edge
The rangers are victorious 4 of each side are taken out  and 19 bystanders  were hit, Brilliant game the complications and  raft movement made the game even more fun i realised i had to pick my shots or loose the game  due to the number of bystanders i had shot , great game,
Next week the  sands of Mars

Escape of the Dragon Lady (IHMN AAR)

 Had the weekly IHMN this time Scotland yard vs the  Dragon Lady, break out mission in a street with bystanders so we set it all up and enjoyed that as much as the game  as we do!
 used a lot of my bits and bobs and made the street come alive yes that's Al
 My MDF buildings are so perfect and easy and do look good laid out

 The yard taken form rule book include the  mechanical dog 
 Dragon Lady's Tong i used proxies as i wanted to try them out Dragon lady, Wo- Jen 2 dragon warriors  3 Tongs and a Yeti
 the  scenario is to get my tong off the table the more the merrier
 the police outnumber the tong and take there places to stop them escaping
 The Dragon lady plans her escape from the Yard  men
 the Yeti  moves in and out of the buildings to the right
 the Police fan out and make ready
 Flo takes her bath little knowing of whats to come her way to the 
 a police and for some reason strikes a fellow office down with his  baton (the dragon Lady's powers)
 her powers work the the week willed
 chicken run and the mighty beast lumbers  around 
 covering the  Dragon queen Wu- Jen makes her way forward
 the police doctor goes to aid the fallen officer and wonders why he was struck from behind
 Al looks on and  starts to take bets on who will win this  little escapade
 the  Sgt armed with a machine gun take s aim and braces himself
 A tong is  shot to bits In a hail of fire
 as he smiles at the result the Sgt is struck hard felling him by another officer (the dragon lady again)
 the Dr abandons the first  casualty and rushed to aid the fallen Sgt the   officers start to trust no one
 shot guns and pistol ready they know some thing big is coming there way from the screams of the bystanders
 a dragon warrior is shot in the back and the officer rushes to finish her off

 but Wu-Jen appears form the side street and cuts him down in a sweep of her blade
 Flo  carries on washing as a huge fur rug passes by her unknown to the  terror
 the second dragon warrior  charges and is quickly surrounded by officers stopping her path
A stray bullet shoots poor Flo dead in her bath
 another officer  assaults a fellow officer the dragon lady is working havoc on the police
 the dragon warriors skills show her to be quite deadly as she drops an officer
 the  fist rises and finishes off the   constable
 the inspector rushes to stop the escaping tong gang his trust dog beside him
 the yeti charges and the officer fends off the huge beast a second above hopes for a lucky shot
 the Dragon Lady's gang moves down the  left side alleyways
 a fist and knife  fight starts in the main street
 the dragon warrior spins and runs for the  escape route officers firing as she runs
 the Sgt now recovered thanks to the Dr  tries to  get a line on her
 the  constable  tries and with one hell of lucky shot  fells the mighty Yeti and saves is  companion
 the inspector wrestles with a tong his dog distracts  the poor  fellow
 The dragon warrior escapes and the Dragon lady holds them off with her powers darkenss and mist swirling there escape path

 the Police stop 2 tong but a third batter his  way past 2 officers

 a dragon warrior about to escape is captured by a daring officer
the tong is surrounded and held  at bay , the game ends with all the tong  escape or  dead , the victory was to my Dragon ladies gang 23 to 58 again we enjoyed every second and the  bystanders of whom 3 were killed by stray bullets including poor bath tub flow made for a great time
