Battle Report - 28-Oct-2013 - "Dead's Army"

The astute will notice this is the last Monday in October. As is usual, our secretary Rob comes up with something warped to celebrate…

This year, he'd spied my Home Guard, as well as been busy painting figures for our Judge Dredd tournament in September…

Cue Dead's Army - The Undead Invasion of Walmington-on-Sea. The rules were a hybrid, perhaps unsurprisingly, of Bolt Action and Judge Dredd, with a slightly TFL-like card activation system.  If you  want a peek at them, they're up here on Dropbox with Rob's blessing. The game was a fantastic success - the end result was a winning draw for the Germans, with three of the four Home Guard sections taking serious damage, but the Vickers team in the General Store's bedroom, and Corporal Jones' section, were potentially going to hold them off, given the excellent field of fire the former had over the village green. A good time was had by all…

An idyllic English village (complete with telephone box on the green).

Germans arrive at the cemetery hot on the heels of Private Walker, who has screeched his bike to a halt at the phone box to place a warning call to the village… too late...

 Leichnamsturmbannfuhrer Skorzeny begins the ritual to summon more zombies.

Captain Mainwairing takes a suddenly cut-off call at the village green phone box...

Corporal Jones' section advance towards the tide of zombies and Germans crossing the bridge. Hodges' section (with Private Frazer) have abandoned Hodges' lorry and advanced across the field, at which point the enterprising Sgt. Wilson and Private Pike have swiped the van!

Jones' section use the van as a mobile fire platform, with the Lewis gun on the roof... 

…while Wilson's section deploy around Hodges' van to go toe-to-toe with the undead.

The last survivor of Captain Mainwairing's section prepares to sell his life dearly against four of the undead. 

"Captain Mainwairing, Captain Mainwairing!!!! A zombie has ripped Uncle Arthur's face off!!!!" 
Private Pike fails a morale roll...
