Captains Log Supplemental

Three Vor’cha Class Birds-of-Prey have been identified attacking colonies in the Nu’nea’ton Sector.  The federation dispatched its greatest captains to meet this threat.  The USS Enterprise D captained by Jean Luc Picard held the line attempting to hail the lead Klingon ship.  Captain Ben Sisko’s USS Defiant was sent to circle the planet and flank the Klingon force whilst Captain Kathryn Janeways USS Voyager warped past the line of Klingons into their rear arcs.

Ignoring Picards hails the three cloaked Vor’cha captained by General Martok, Gowron and Captain Nu’Daq opened fire from cloak in a united strike and destroyed the Enterprise.  The saucer section seperating and crash landing on the planet below.

As the three Klingon vessels advanced the general order was given by the now marooned Picard to “Fire At Will” at all enemy vessels.  Both Voyager and the Defiant locked onto the rearmost ship and tore it to pieces in a blazing hail or phaser fire.  With no shields to take the damage the hull bore th brunt of the fire and was torn in two.

Gowron and Martok advanced between the planets and split in an attempt to divide and conquer their Federation foes but superior manuevering by Voyager allowed it to use its phasers at close distance in its rear quarter which sliced through the neck of Gowrons Bird-of-Prey destroying it and killing all its crew.  Voyager was now limping around the planet on Auxiliary power whilst the Defiant orbited slowly ready to strike at Martoks remaining Vor’cha.

Jousting with the Martoks Klingon vessel Sisko’s Defiant fired its Positron Beam causing it to run under Auxiliary power as Voyager rejoined the fray.  Unable to shake Auxiliary Power Martoks Vor’cha was unable to Sensor Echo out of Voyagers primary weapon arc as it began to strip away the hull on Martoks vessel.

In one last act of Klingon valour Martok came about ready to face certain death and charged at Voyager and the Defiant.  Before Sisko could fire Voyager fired its primary weapons tearing through the remaining hull.

Victory for the Federation!

A couple of posts recently by friends on Facebook has had my keen levels rising for Necromunda again.  I’d love to find any of the stuff I used to have especially given the costs of things on EvilBay now.  I’m sure I had a Full Redemptionist, Full Ratskin, Full Orlock and Full Spyrer gang plus a stack and store box full of scenery.  I’ll be gutted if that’s all gone missing……could be at my Dads or my ex’s.

So I’m considering getting a gang and getting back into it…probably Redemptionists.  I’m also after a cheap second hand copy of the original game if anyone reading this has one.

For anyone interested the below link lists alternate places to procure Necromunda minis and some cool images to get the creative juices flowing:-

Possible alternate solutions would be Malifaux or Confrontation or Inquisitor.  Im looking for a 28mm sci-fi/dark future gang based game that wont cost the earth in minitaure purchases to buy or play.
