Communism in spaaaace

Stumbled across an article on featuring Soviet visions for life in space. Some nice terrain ideas in there!

The sun or exterminatus?

A bit of Rogue Trader

I am kicking off the blog with a few shots of  a Rogue Trader game I played last year, featuring Imperial and Eldar forces clashing over an abandoned outpost.

Please note the copious amounts of lichen in use as is de rigueur for all Rogue Trader games.

Imperial forces advance.

The Eldar Warlord takes aim.

The game ended up being very one sided with the Eldar force's multiple Shuriken Catapults and Multi Lasers cutting swathes through the unfortunate humans.  The Imperial Walker was shot down early so we let another come on in its place.  This too was brought down in no short order.

I was in the Umpire role for the game to make sure it went at a good speed and not to get bogged down in the nitty gritty of the rules.  The system was still very playable though I dreaded any close combat happening. Thankfully it never did!
