Galactic Heroes: Betrayal!
« on: April 19, 2019, 03:58:30 PM »
We played a great little scenario where the troops guarding a key checkpoint may not be the most reliable.
The players running the mercenaries didn't even know until the last minute.

Splendid, that’s a nice scenario idea. Will definitely give it a try. :)

Were moving to a new house near the seaside next month. 'Backstabbing Mercs' will be the new Emporium's opening volley with the our 'big boys toys'!

Does that mean I have to convert an Ewok to carry a sniper rifle?

Jaye, great pictures. I love the Pig Iron-Figures. Maybe you should contact them and make a supplement for their range. I think of a story like Mars-Belt-Rebellion like these TV-Show I won‘t mention here...

I have my own background for my more hard SciFi games. I suppose I could write it to offer as a backdrop, maybe with linked scenarios.

Very versatile scenario you've written there, adaptable to lots of different periods.

His Grace the Duke of Wellington's outposts in the Waterloo campaign springs to mind.
Sharpey and his lads with a shower of them dodgy Dutch/Belgians in tow. Then Marshal Ney's advancing Skirmishers show up.
