Trade War, Ep. 2: For a Few Dollars More




Location
Sachines, on the road between Sachines Landing Field and Sachines Settlement
Recap
After the death of Captain Kahbar in the last mission (see LINK), the survivors of his mercenary company mostly drift apart. A few of the hardbitten veterans under Sargent Rhinoski decide to stick together and head to Sachines Settlement. Hopefully an opportunity will present itself.

“Why hello boys, you look hard done by. Been on the road for a few days?
Sit down and have a drink on me.”

“My name is Captain John "Hannibal"  Smith, and I’m assembling a team of beings with varied talents and extremely honed skills….”






“…for some dangerous work. If you live, it pays well, and I could use men like you.”

“Sounds good, Sir. I'm Sargent Rhinoski. I have to say up front, there is one possible complication.
I have unfinished business with a certain Robot Gunslinger….

that goes by the name ‘Red Eyes’, and that comes first.”

"That's not a complication, son. I'm not here by accident."

Hello Readers,
That's one Kill Team with a lot of Character. To answer your question, no I am NOT staying within one list to build my Kill Teams. If it's got points, it's fair game. 
I will stick to the correct number of specialists (there will be only 1 Leader, and only 4 overall)
But, I am using the Guard list, the Kroot List, the Twins, the Navigator (he's repped by the Telebrainian), and any other list I believe will make for a wild a varied group of RT adventurers.
I think it's safe to use the generic Tactics, but steer clear of any that are faction specific, for now.

Next Up, I will be using the "Tournament" expansion KT:Arena to run narrative games for the campaign.

Thanks for looking!

  1. The team looks tasty, looking forward to seeing how they interact!

    1. I was very disappointed that the RT expansion did not include rules on how to build your own RT Team, just the single team in the box. This is a stab at one.

  2. Is the telebrainian a CP mini? I know I've seen him before but can't quite remember where he comes from....

    1. Hi daveb,
      He's from Ramshackle. I have, i suppose an entire Kill Team of them, but never quite the right faction rules to field them.

  3. This 'team' ... wouldn't have the letter 'A' associated with it by any chance...?

  4. The team looks great Will & your right in the way you've gone about it, restrictions should only count for hard nose competitive gaming.

    1. I was inspired by a post from airbornegrove26 on his blog, http://givemlead.blogspot.com/

      He was putting together a Fantasy list and he had these cool Dwarf Knights, and rather than just have them "count as" he found some actual stats, and leveraged the idea that the army had that much more character if the Dwarves actually performed differently than their larger compatriots.

      That made a whole lot more sense to me than being straightjacketed by an army list.

    2. You do know that straight jackets aren't only for the insane Will there also for escape artists to :) I think you come under the later mate.

    3. "Escape Artist"
      I think that would have a nice ring on a resume'
      :)

  5. Seems like a good team! Rules are just guidelines when it comes to friendly play anyway.

    Those orange Kroot are fun. I have a long stalled kroot mercenaries project (from back when they had various upgrade types in White Dwarf), and your orange fellows here remind me that I ought to circle back around to them (what is 16 years when it comes to miniatures projects?)

    1. Yep, it's what GW says over and over. Heck, this month's WD shows 3 KT batreps that use made up scenarios, that they adjust on the fly. Pretty clear on intent, especially when they publish the exact same week they release KT: Arena. Play what you want to play..

      Yeah, those orange Kroot are about that old, except the leader who is from the Blackstone Fortress set. I was surprised I managed to matched the paint scheme at all.

  6. Heck of a setup for the next episode there. I must say I'm looking forward to more. You really are trying hard to make this no longer young gamer try some newer company products.

    Well done sir!

    1. Thanks Composer,
      I've had a long history w GW. (worked as an exec for awhile) and since Tom kirby retired, they have really changed their approach and are doing great stuff.

  7. Fantastic concept, I need to run it by my FLGS and see if anybody wants to play my rag-tag Chaos force...

  8. There ya' go. The ones who say yes are the cool guys.
    ...did you know there are rules to use the various Chaos models from the Blackstone Fortress models in KT? THey're in a download from the Whammer Community site, maybe there's variety in that list?
