    I posted a report of a recent PA game on my blog, an investigation of an old relay station.

    Kind of a longish post with lots of pics at:

    Hope it might be of some interest.

    Thanks for looking.

    That is a lovely looking set up, and old school Imperial Guard too!!

    But what was in there?

    A very good read and good looking game, reminds me slightly of the “Amtrack wars”.

    That is a REALLY cool looking station you built.  That tower with the ladder cage is so realistic, very well done.

    I too want to know what was inside, and why not keep it outposted/guarded now?  Did they learn all they could?  Arrgh, need more!

    Thanks!!

    I still love those old Imperial Guard figs.  In general, I much prefer their old figs to the newer stuff.

    Inside the building is communications equipment that still talks to functioning satellites, and provides a means to talk to anyone else with access to them.  It may provide access to other resources, but I haven’texplored those ideas yet.  There is also something powering the site, which could be of interest.

    Funny that you mention “Amtrak Wars”.  I created most of my PA world and factions before discovering the series, but in reading it, there were several instances, where it felt very familiar.  Plus, you might eventually see a couple things in my games taken almost directly from the books.

    They didn’t occupy the site, as that simply wasn’t part of the mission.  Go out, add it to the maps, see what it is, report.  They found it opened up (dice), and do have the ability to lock in down until they return.  Their expectation is that noone else can really do that, and I don’t know if that is true yet (back to die rolls).

    They still have to get back to share what they have discovered.  I’ll start that process next weekend.  We’ll see where the story takes itself.

    It’s always fun (and sometimes frustrating) when the “dice gods” have their say.  😀

    I posted the report for the next scenario in my post apoc campaign.  The Confederation troops encounter some resistence, while starting their trip back home from the comms station.  Story and more pics on my blog at:

    The Comms Station: The Descent (part 2)

    Thanks for looking.

    As ever – gorgeous terrain.  Definitely got that Post-Apoc vibe.

    I’m very curious to see what reason you generate to explain the APCs, or lack thereof.

    Thanks, I haven’t roled the dice on the APCs yet.  I have three current possibilities, but have a couple factions to add, that could be involved.

    Panky smiling, who’d have thought…  Liking these batreps!  Our peeps were lucky that those lasers ran out of juice, otherwise could have been a TPK.

    That gorgeous mesa terrain is begging for some gorillas with guns and some “cavemen”!!!  🙂
