Terminators - A fight for Survival
« on: September 30, 2014, 08:40:44 AM »
Hi Folks

Last night saw the Shed play its first game of Terminators - a home brew rule set in the ruins of an old city.

Full AAR and pictures up on the blog

Great terrain, battle report and the rules sound like they did what they were designed to do.

Personally not a fan of something being able to regenerate fully. I prefer regen to be only a partial power with the thought that full repair takes outside assistance.

Just a preferance. I feel the same when it hppens in stories or movies to. Full recovery is to much for my tastes.

Oh I forgot to say the tactics, on both sides, sounded pretty solid.

To begin with I was nervous about the full regen BUT it did make for an interesting dilemma for our human survivors do they hang around and take out a weakened unit and run the risk of being counterattacked or do they pull out.

Lets face it the movies portray these robots as virtually invulnerable - we certainly captured that spirit.

Thanks for all the above comments - over a dozen folks have requested the rules... :)

On a final point it is critical in a game like this to have a clear objective otherwise it just becomes a straight fire fight which can be incredibly boring...

Until next time
