It is time to show some signs of life again on this blog. Things have been a bit busy here in Copenhagen lately but I recently had a chance to play a game of Rogue Trader with my goods friends Claus and Anders. The back-story was the following. Dr. Leo Powder (a genestealer hybrid magus) and his cult were discovered by the authorities of Hunger City and a military unit was sent in to clear out the cult-scum and all their off-spring. However they failed to capture Dr. Powder and his closest hybrid allies who by the help of their brood succeeded in fleeing from Hunger City. Cult members jumped into cars and six of the sacred pure strain genestealers were packed into the back of a truck and off they went. The army was in hot pursuit of the cultists who decided to take a detour into the desert in order to improve their chances of escape. This they should never have done because Dr. Powder and his brood headed straight into the territory of the ork ganger Jerzman da Nazdy who not only was unwilling to let the vehicles pass, he was also very interested in capturing the cars and particularly the truck – although he did not know what it was carrying.
In the battle we played, Dr. Powder and his cult had just arrived in front of the ork territory. They objective of the cult was to get passed the orks with as many vehicles, hybrids and genestealers alive as possible. Jezman and the orks on the other hand had to prevent this.
The game was a blast. Cars and bikes raced around on the table, boltguns cracked and genestealers crawled through the bushes ambushing orks. In the end the orks succeeded in stopping the cult but it was a close call and almost all of the orks had been killed when the last of the brood was finished.
Well, here you see some random snapshots from the game taken by Claus (the victorious ork player). I will try to upload som epictures of the minis and cars from the game soon.
