Dedburgh - On the Trail of Riyal Badyin

Post by dadlamassu » Wed Jun 06, 2018 6:57 pm

On the trail of Riyal Badyin

In this game we move even further out from the town centre. The roads are again the paper ones from the Mantic “Mars Attacks” game. We used the Warlord Games compound and our stock buildings .

Image

Military Intelligence provides that the zombie outbreak seems centred arount the distribution depots of “Zedgen” a large international company owned by the mysterious billioaire Riyal Badyin. Dedburgh is home to a distribution depot and an RAF aircraft takes a photograph. And as a result a small mission is launched to capture the science officer there and his files. The Mission starts at dawn with a recce team in an armoured car and another in a helicopter. The recce teams are dismounted, have a quick conference on tactics and the game begins with Aiden (age 8) in charge of the ground recce team and Callum (age 10) with the helicopter team of Black Watch.

Image

Aiden opts for the direct approach since the game has already gone “noisy”. His armoured car storms ahead and smashes open the gates as the foot team follows up. Callum’s Black Watch climb into their helo.

Image

As the helo lifts off the armoured car reverses back and picks up the dismounted team.

Image

Image

The Black Watch land on the roof despite the sentries on the roof firing at them quite ineffectively Though a sentry is shot dead by the soldiers. Then as the zombies close in on the armoured car drives forward an unlucky event card means it has a burst tyre and slows to half speed. There are too many zombies about to change it so it advances firing its turret machine gun to fend off the zombies.

Image

Image

The helicopter lifts off and a gun battle develops on the roof with Black Watch killing all of the sentries and their reinforcements.

Image

Aiden Blocks the wrecked gates with the armoured car while the recce troops dosmount to deal with the bodies. One immediately rises up as a zombie attacks a trooper is quickly killed.

Image

Two highlanders drop ito the office with a warcry of “Gerr intae thum!” and engage in a fierce hand to hand battle with the two guards and the scientist. No shots are fired as Callum wants the scientist alive and also does not want to wreck the computer.

Image

The scientist thinks about escaping downstairs but he hears a mighty crash and gunfire from below. Aiden’s troopers burst in to fight 2 zombies and 2 guards.

Image

Outside things are getting worse. the armoured car is stopping zombies getting in but some of the bodies are rising up as zombies and one at the zombie compound rises up and lets out a moan (event card). The horde surges towards it.

Image

In the office the scientist is overpowered but sprays a can of chemicals labelled “Zed Spray” over one of the highlanders before the zip cuffs tie him up and the sprayed highlander grabs him by the thrapple, draws his sgian dugh to gralloch him (translation: grabs him by the throat, draws his knife and disembowels him)

Image

At the gate things are getting worse. The zombie compound gives way.

Image

Faced with a dilemma Aiden decides it is time to go. The armoured car reverses and blocks the zombie hordes leaving the compound and opens the rear door for his troopers, one of whome fores his LAW into the hordes and kills several.

Image

Both teams fire into the hordes as the ground troops clamber into their armoured car. The highlander’s officer fires off a mini-flare and the helicopter returns.

Image

Covered by the highlanders the armoured car escapes ploughing through the zombies mowing several down as it passes through to the cheers of the troops inside, “Did you see that one burst apart?”

Image

DISASTER! Callum’s event card shows that the helicopter’s fuel tank is empty. It must have been hit in the fuel tank in the earlier fire fight.

Image

With their prisoner and his computer the highlanders escape on foot picking up the two female pilots on the way. “dae ye fancy goin’ dancin’ tonight?” asks a highlander.,

Image

Image

Image

Another successfull mission that very nearly went wrong. Both boys made good tactical decisions despite the problems dropped on them by the event cards. Unfortunately the scientist was not Ruyal Badyin. Fortunately the highlander sprayed by the can of “Zed Spray” suffered no harm.

The hunt for Riyal Badyin continues.

Enjoyed reading that, a great game, and your terrain has a great urban feel to it, excellent... thmbs2)
Greatness is not in where we stand, but in what direction we are moving. We must sail sometimes in the wind, and sometimes against it, but sail we must, and not drift nor lie at anchor.
