So I got to play through the second scenario from Burnt Tierra Ridge with the models fresh from the pack (and none of my terrain unpacked from the move - so household items are serving as terrain, haha). The Drifters were attempting to rally at their old camp at a waypoint unknown to the Stitchers.

So, the Drifters started out on the four corners of the table with the exception of the poor one who had been drugged and had an organ harvested during the previous scenario. He had the misfortune of starting concealed right next to the Stitcher who harvest his kidney last game.

The Drifters ran out to the the fridges of the board to avoid the patrolling Stitchers (who were all but oblivious to the Drifters), even the recent organ donor made it out of sight.

By turn three the drifters were starting to close in on their possibly rallying points


Meanwhile the Stitchers were as oblivious as ever:

By turn four the Drifters are all closing in on the Western side of the board, trying to avoid the sentries.

At the end of turn four the Stitcher Orderly not only reveals the point that it appears the Drifters are heading towards, but he spots the Drifter Chieftain! The Hunter rushes to engage, but his shot goes wide.

On turn five the Drifters on the North side of the board come out of hiding and beeline for the objective.

The Stitcher Hunter charges in and engages the Drifter Chieftain, missing his chance to inflict harm while the metabolically impaired Drifter limps towards the waypoint. The orderly attempts to tranquilize him, but while the shot strikes, it fails to affect the Drifter.

On turn six the Drifters all run towards the waypoint and gather up....

Unfortunately they do so without their Chieftain, who has his throat brutally crushed by the Jaws of Life as he tries to disengage from his battle with the Stitcher Hunter (the Hunter inflicted a whopping five points of damage after the Chieftain rolled 3 successful defenses).


The scenario ended up in draw, with 100 RUs to each faction. It was a lot of fun (though I think the sentry rules need a bit of clarification) and well balanced. I was really bummed my terrain hadn't been unpacked yet and we had to use odds and ends, but it was kind of nostalgic to the mini gaming I did when I was in my mid-teens.

Looks like a fun time!

Email me your comments (or post them up) in regards to the sentry rules. I'm in the middle of a big update with a lot of comments coming in from various people who have been kind enough to put in their suggestions.

I love the table. I definitely did a lot of gaming like that in my early years too, and would again in a pinch if I wanted to play some games and didn't have terrain accessible.

Sounds good, I have my Sentry questions posted in the Burnt Tierra Ridge rules/typos thread.

I've actually found that spray painted exercise mat thing to work like a charm. Since moving into a smaller apartment my 4x4 table (well really my two 2x4 tables) have been stored, and the Zuzzy mats I have are pretty useless on anything smaller as they just drooped over the sides. I really don't bust out the tables unless I'm having people over for a game, as I have to move furniture to make it comfortable, but the exercise mat locks together and can be put together and taken apart in about 3 minutes. I got my terrain unpacked finally (I had a Mordheim game I need to bring it to), and while I have a ton of Mordheim terrain, I'm pretty short on post apocalyptic stuff. I have some stuff that will work though: some Quonset Huts, Craters, Ruined building Barricades, and what not. I'll have to get some proper scrap buildings put together one of these days.

I had bins and bins filled with terrain a few years ago. I got rid of most of it in an attempt to un-clutter my life, along with several thousand 40k models, and 15 painted epic armageddon armies.

These days, I just try to keep it simple, which is why I have thousands of unpainted Wreck Age models waiting to be put into blisters... ;)

I'm actually doing pretty well on terrain in general (though most of it is unpainted- because I can't stand painting it), but most of it is pretty Sci-fi or Fantasy. Very little modern or Post-Apocalyptic.

I feel you there, I've probably gotten rid of a thousand or so 40k and Fantasy models in my time (though never 15! painted epic armies).

I've definitely simplified my hobbying (and reduced in quantity), but I still can't find the time!

Painting terrain is a fun thing to do while watching a movie you've seen before, or hanging out and talking with someone, because it takes very little concentration (and I find that it's easier to paint when you're feeling a little distracted, and not tremendously focused on little details).

I'll have to give that a concentrated try once I'm done with my exam on the 16th. I think you are on to something, the only time I've really been able to get a lot of terrain painting done is when Ive been hanging out with buddies and we've all been painting.

If you've got an airbrush, set up an assembly line, with one person base coating, one person drybrushing and picking out highlights and one person flocking, putting on grass, and doing final details/weathering. It's a good way to crank out a lot of terrain.
