The final game of the weekend for me was something that I was really looking forward to. Not only was it being played on Whiskey Priest's excellent Ferrograd board, but it was also using a ruleset that I had dreamed about since reading them in WD years ago - CONFRONTATION!
JB (Asslessman) had devised the scenario and each of the 3 players had personal objectives (with a back story) and very different equipment and skills.
My Gang, Imamu's Eradicators, consisted of:
Jelani Imamu - Shotgun wealding leader of the gang
Old Father Tuma - The groups spiritual guide, who also packs a shotgun
Butcher - A quiet psycho with no ranged weapons, preferring a machete and a tiger claw
Rufus Blaine - A fat mechanic who prefers an old school crossbow to modern firearms
Jakob Payne - A young hothead with a flamer
The gang had three objectives:
1. Protect Abdul Goldberg (a piece of skum who has information that Imamu's superiors don't want in the wrong hands).
2. Eliminate as many gangers as possible (it's all about reputation!).
3. Stay away from the Imperial authorities (reputation has its down sides).

Pa Angel knew that those danged Judges were holed up in the building in front of them. It had taken some quick rangling of the muties to put a ambush together before they could be extracted, but he had done it. Now, standing ready with his family around him, he gave the signal to attack....

Well the joy that was BOYL2014 is over. I have to say that I thoroughly enjoyed myself and have made some good friends and enjoyed put names and faces ot the online nicknames.
This post is just a quick one to acknowledge the fun. Over the next week, I'll put together more indepth reports of the games that I enjoyed.
Here are a few pictures to show how amazing things were:
I was also totally gobsmacked by how accomodating the Ansell's are (along with the others working at the Foudry)
This is an event that is now firmly fixed as an annual outing in my calendar,
Next installment willl be my account of Pa Angel's successful ambush of Judge Dredd!!! (Possibly a slightly biased account.)

Since Mister Rab was engaged in the start of the BOYL siege, and some of us had nothing special going on, Cheetor kindly invited me to join him along with Just John and Otter Von Bismark to a trial run of the Gorkamorka game to be played on Sunday morning.

Talisha is the name Imamu has given to his people carrier. Meaning 'fortunate woman', he hope the name will be an omen for the gang.
