7TV Solo, El Santo VS The Blood Beast Terror

Im a fan of the Mexican wrestling movies of the 60s-70s and inspired by the solo 7TV rules  addition I wanted to use  my new miniatures as a cast,. The Pulp setting was used and Crusading Crime fighter ( El Santo) , Rugged Veteran (Blue Devil) and Prize fighter (Shahna)  seems ideal , along with  lesser animal companion (Moko) police sergeant and some beat cops I composed my cast. the Scenario was Sophia where a VIP is placed in the center of the board and needs to escape off the opposite side after being freed by a character. 

 I laid out a slightly larger table and used my Scenery to depict the  tomb of the blood beasts (Beast men Mutts) would be the horde set up in random spawn points

Sophia bound and in the temple for sacrifice to the Blood Beasts.
 El Santo Blue Devil, Shahna with Moko set out to rescue the Beautiful woman

 The Blood beast set up in random await the   intruders
 They get first turn and charge head long to  rip the poor cast to pieces
 the Ruins slow them down the wrestlers and Police empty there revolvers into the Blood Beast wave
 Blue Devil shoots one down and charges into an oncoming beast

 The Sergeant and cop drop another but more advance
 the Police Sergeant  moves to incept the  beasts
 El Santo drops one with his trusty pistol then moves to find the captive, as Shahna and Moko  punch and bite at a beast
 Blue Devil  grapples with a beast

 His  mighty and  strength  succeeds he fells a beast as Shahna and Moko knock there opponents to the ground
 El Santo spots the captive Sophia
 As Shahna  recovers she is charged again by the blood Beasts
 she fells one  but more advance
 A lone Cop  fires into the charging beasts
 Blue devil is struck hard and wounded as another Beast knocks him down from behind
 Shahna and Moko are surrounded by teeth and claws
 As El Santo finds the entrance  he is surrounded by beasts is all lost?

( Count down card) Dramatic Monologue  knocks his opponents down. " I send you beasts back to the  pit you came from this night"
 he runs and frees the  captive, "You are safe now El Santo is here !"
 The police  sergeant is torn apart by the Blood beasts
 A Cop suffers the same fate
 Shahna and Moko are knocked to the  ground defeated by the horde of Beasts, all the companions are down  El Santo is alone (he passed his spirit test)
 Others  rise and charge at El Santo in the temple

 He punches one down" Run for the gate  Lady , I will hold them off"
 Reluctantly she runs  out the temple to the gate "I will never  forget you El Santo"
 open before her she makes to the gate and freedom
 She looks back as El Santo defends the door way knocking back the evil horde
 He stands defiant and  grapples and fights off the beasts but  others  come from his back, is El Santo  raises his fists as the monsters come closer "Stronger we are  the evil has no power over us  together"
Id call is a success, loads of fun the  countdown cards added wonderful effects, Nice to use my miniatures, I recommend a try out fo these rules for any 7TV gamer.

7TV Solo game , "Cannibal Vampire Blood bath terror

Iam a huge fan of the 7TV universe and games, and now isolated wanted a Solo game system asking on the Facebook page , we had many ideas, the Karl of CD deliver again to the faithful, A set of guild line s for playing Solo using casts against hordes of minions by  Kieron Mulloand, and a free download form CD website

A collected a very small points cast to try them out, from the Apocalypse set, the cast  faced as the horde 5 vampires which were randomly placed on spawn tokens on the board, using only 1/2 the countdown cards used for the cast only, and  the scenario to  block the spawn points of destroy the Horde spawn points
I used my Mars attack terrain and  mat, 
 The Vampire horde was placed and off we went, they got first turn. "its going to be bad"

 Short is charged by a vampire in the first  action of the Horde
 He is ripped apart 
 Sly falls next to Hope the survivor as a vampire  tears him up.
She backs away and shoots the undead down .

A vampire moves and hypnotizes poor jack
 He is  easy prey to the undead and dies a gory death

Sayid the Survivor leader faces another Vampire he is wounded badly. then  ripped apart

Muttly charges into the Frey 
He makes short work of a vampire 

 Hope is jumped and slain by another Vampire all looks bad for the survivors
 Chuck is surrounded he draws his trust knife and fends off the undead
 Muttly takes out another Vampire spots Chuck and runs to his defense slaying a damaged Vampire
 Chuck now facing only one  strikes  slaying the unded
 Chuck  kills another Vampire
 As Muttly runs to engage another vampire his is ambushed and  dies heroically  as they tear him down, (the slain vampires are re spawned on the   roll of the number on a dice)
Last countdown card leave Chuck surrounded and as all good Movies the  camera turns red. A draw in game outcome, I rely enjoyed the system and using a cast vs horde works for me fine. very well done Karl and Kieron, brilliant addition and is  great fun.
