Cyberpunk Trama Team and others painted


Papsikels STLs of the Trama team from Cyberpunk 2077 found there way via our Russell to my table, fantastic miniatures, I am afraid my bad hands and eyes perhaps do not do them justice?, also some Slane recruits to my collection, and a project to make Tablet the Dwarf into my updated games..

The Doomed, first game.

The Doomed a Apocalyptic Horror Hunting  skirmish game by Chris Mc Dowall. Got the book at the last partizan and enjoyed the whole idea, at last I got round to trying it out. You create a war band to engage a horror that enters this dimension and must be stopped.
Based on a ravaged world where the  remains of a company are left to fend for themselves, it is a solo/ co-operative game, war bands must destroy nexus points to have a least a hope of killing the terror, who mostly wanders the board and wants to stay.

I created a war band from the book , which is  easy to lay out and has many options from different Factions, mine was from the Exiles list, ending up with five miniatures.

The game uses random tables for the horror and the conflict for each scenario, masses of horrors and conflicts create a huge variable game, I got the Rot Herald horror and drop site conflict. 

Easy to set up on a 2x2 board with a lot of terrain, and the game starts, conditions are in the horror and conflict adding to the whole scenario fun.

The horror and one if its Minions was in the center of the board the war band dropped around the clearing, this was going to be bloody, the nexus were deployed in turn,

First turn the Horror took down  one member and in turn its minion was killed by the shooter, the blade attacked but was smashed back into the under growth, he was un-harmed, various  fire power did nothing the the Horror.

Second Turn  a nexus appeared and the horror dived on the   member beside it he was removed and a second war band  lost to the  ranged horror's attack , started to look bad? the  leader destroyed  the nexus beside him.
Third turn the stalker recovered and ran for the last nexus to appear drawing the horror after her, the blade struck at the  monster and was dispatched in a single blow, The leader shot and destroyed the  first nexus, and went to the aid of the scout. The horror closing in. 
Chased the stalker  lured the horror into the under growth, she meet her fate as the horror closed in the leader  shot again Destroying the last nexus enabling the horror to be damage, he charged and  faced the monster his blows did nothing, the monster fought back and felled the leader as he fell he  got a final last gasp result, blow against the  horror, it was destroyed and  sent back to where it came.  
Maybe got a few things wrong but the game was above all fun and fast, the horror makes a great threat, the combat to me works fine and results from being wounded are rely good, I enjoyed the flow of the game.

More to come I think, my vast collection can be plundered and some miniatures used for the first time in years....

Be Safe my friends.
