The Terror Siege of Rig 17 (7TV game)


I got the M.A.N.T.A  Ray 5 episode guide for 7TV second edition, along with the miniatures ,so in a new Man cave I decided to give them a run out, my boxes for miniatures and terrain are far more accessible now so a quick terrain layout used my necromunda things ar a deserted Oil rig and counted out some points. the  Good guys were to stop the  Fish men for storming the Rig 4 plot points were set up and the defenders  deployed, the Nauticans would arrive in there Terror fish and by swimming to the Rig
The game used 18 script cards and 55 points per side (after i consider this too high, maybe 25-30 next time) I wanted to use a lot of miniatures so my fault..
The game was fun and the big monster  scaring poor souls off the rig, the Nauticans body armor saved them at critical points, after a huge gun battle 3 Nautican thought better and swam off leaving poor leader to shoot it out with the remaining good guys he dropped 2 but  Tempest shooting dropped him in the end so a victory to the good guys. As always fun and perhaps i learned to lower the points of each side... 
                                    Here is some pictures of the action, be safe my friends.

Skull Hunters, Guyver monsters and some Lion Men

Russel has been hard at work printing me more of Papsikel's wonderful 3D miniatures, so in my new man cave space I set about painting them, a joy as always to paint, and remembering to use as little paint as  I can Contrast, speed paints and washes, very delighted with the results. Also did the Lion men from Daybreak miniatures for my collection.

Refurbished Wargame/Painting/ Art, man cave

After many years I decided to update my Man cave, I had a lot of stuff believe me. I cut down a lot of my miniatures And set out what i needed, easy access to my boxes of miniatures and books and painting set up. Clearing out then painting the walls a new, I got some Ikea shelving and book case with 2 tables one for my Computer and one to paint and use for games. Russell and Graham helped assemble the shelving and position the  units, It took me about 2 days just to put my boxes and books in position.

But finished so far I am very happy and grateful for my Son's help, so at last can paint draw and  play games, all my terrain is here and  rules along with the book shelf where I can just pull one out to use..

Retirement enhanced...
