Sergeants Wee

Having sent 95th (working title Baker Rifle) off to the publisher, it is time to have some fun and play some games.

The following is the first in a campaign arc I've been working on for sometime. The game takes place in Halflingland, and uses the Brawl encounter from 95th.

Sergeants Machutney, Quatar, and Balifine are, as usual, visiting the canteen. An altercation has broken out between our heroes and members of a Joccian battalion stationed in the area.


Some say the Joccians called Balifine's parentage into question.
Other say Machutney made an ill advised comment regarding kilts.
However we know it all has to do with the gullible Quatar having purchased a treasure map off of one of the rats. Machuntey rightly feared his friend had been swindled and tried to force the rats to take their map back.

Fisticuffs ensued.

Initially each halfling squared off against two Joccians. The halflings are all Rep 5, while the Joccians have two Rep 5 and four Rep 4 figures.


The Sergeants won the first initiative and they each charged the toughest looking rat of the two facing them.


Quatar bull charged his rat and sent him flying over the balustrade.


The unfortunate Joccian landing with thump on the table below.


Meanwhile Machutney knocked his target down but the rat was fast up on his feet again.

Balifine flailed at his foe but to no avail.


On their activation the remaining rats charged.
Quatar held off his assailant. 
Machutney brought down both of his foes.
Balifine went down under a flurry of furry blows.


The second turn initiative roll saw the arrival of the Provosts!


The Sergeants were frog marched off to face the wrath of Captain Giglamps.

Little did they realize that the Captain had sent the Provosts looking for them.

There was a very dangerous job to be done...

That's it. A very short game and very enjoyable. Unlikely the Provosts should have shown up so soon but I was hoping they would put in a quick appearance to lead on to the next game..."Finding Faccia da Rospo".

Thank's for dropping by!

  2. Thank you Phil. The buildings are from Miniature Building Authority, the furniture from Dwarven Forge, and the figures from Alternative Armies. I ought to have said as much in the post but forgot to.
