Rescue attempt in a zombie infested area (Picture Heavy)
« on: July 15, 2009, 11:51:37 AM »
I have to split the report into a few parts, since the forum does not like it if I use only one post :(

WARNING - I'm still a bit tired, so next to zombies, typos are probably also present

Last night we had another game of survivors in z zombie filled world. It was played because a) we liked the last zombie game a lot and b) we had too see tmy freshly built world works terrain in action.

We used the same rule set as before, which is combat zone, with some small modifications.

In this game, a group of survivors who were scouting the terain for supplies got caught in a zombie swarm. They fal lback into a warehouse, waiting until a rescue party could come and clear an escape route. While heavily armed themselves, the scouts had the problem that zombies kept converging onto their location. Probably the zombies have some sort of 6th sense for the location of the living.

First some overview shots of the playing field:




As can be sene, the living dead rule the streets!





One of the scouts, Ivan, stands on the roof of the warehouse, hoping to see an easy escape route.


Meanwhile, at the outskirts of the town, the recue party arrives. Duke sees the warehouse and points the way.


Zombies outside the warehouse moan a bit, but do not show too much activity (yet)





While two groups of survivors try to circle around the field, Duke tells his chicks that crossing the zombie filled field is the way to go.


After all, zeds are alllready pouring in from the sides, so the filed sounds relativly safe.



A few more zombies shamble onto the scene, but shooting from the survivors in the warehouse keeps them nicely under control.
Why aim for gold if you can get lead?

Meanwhile, zombies at other locations are conveinently ignored.



Duke and his chicks haven't even managed to get onto the filed yet. They first help in halting a zombies rush on the groups vehicles.


Allthough the shotgun armed cop pays with his life, for the moment the zombie threat is eliminated.


On the other side, the other groups of rescuesr hs cleared a path as well.


Bringing a machine gun and some assault rifles does seem to help a bit...


The guys in the warehouse  see the zombie mob outside growing on most sides.



But they have almost managed to clear the exit. Maybe they should make a run for it?


Duke, the girls and a priest make it onto the field. Which is now empty.


The other group also advances carefully.


The field did not stay empy for long. Zeds start pouring in from all sides. Lara panics and runs away.


Duke is adamant and says they have to go straight through the horde.

The zeds like Duke approach and come to thank him.


Only the redhaired cop survives and she follows Lara in running away.


Both the the girls leave the field, with some hungry "fans" in close pursuit.


And still more zeds arrive near the warehouse.


The man with the machinegun takes aim at the zombies following Lara.


Maybe it is really time to leave the warehosue before this group arrives?


After some frantic shooting to clear the front entrance/exit the scouts leave their "safe" location.


The zeds take notice and become active.


While trying to keep ahead of the zobie horde, the group still has to cross the street. This time the danger is not in reckless drivers or fast cars, but the zeds that are in the other street...


One survivor is overtaken, fails to break away and is torn to pieces.


The other survivors are now even more motivated to run away.


After some furious fighting, everyone gets away.


But wait, Mask is not running so fast anymore, what is going on?


BRAINSSSSSS!!!!!!


Barely visible, Mask tries to hold of the zombies, so the rest can escape.


And they do escape. Mask can still be seen, with the zeds all over him.


11 out of 19 survivors manage to return and leave in their trusted mobile homes.

Excellent game and battle report!  And I love the zed with the walker modelled on his base! lol

Did you make the sidewalks yourself or are they something purchased like those sold through Old Crow?

Awesome and inspiring!

I like how there just happens to be a Ferrari parked in that neighborhood! Hey guys, jump in that and let the Zeds try and get you!

Thanks for the wonderful battle report.

Thanks for the kind words, it was fun to post the report as well. Though taking the pictures is quite some work, it's always worth it. Especially if I look back at the reports in a few motnhs/years time :)

@Oliver: The cars are just toy cars as can be bought in most toy stores. They are all kind of brands, mostly very cheap ones though. scale 1:46 or 1:56. just make sure you compare the vehicles with an actual miniature before buying... Otherwise you'll ens up with a nice collection of vehicles that ar just too small or too big...

@Darkoath: I made the pavement myself. Though honestly it is quite some work and I can only advise you to make it if you have either nothing better to do, or are watching a movie or TV serie in the meanwhile. Here is how I made them: http://leadadventureforum.com/index.php?topic=5483.0
