Welcome to the Wayback! Gorkamorka Season One

As promised, here is my unfinished Gorkamorka post…

In case you’re unaware of this, the Wayback is the name I’ve given to the local shop’s series of Specialist Games campaigns. A very friendly long time miniatures gamer runs the campaigns for about six sessions each, painting up appropriate miniatures as prizing. The Mordheim winner went home with a Necromunda gang, and I took home a Gorkamorka mob for my performance in Necromunda. Well, it’s Gorkamorka time, and there’s a dwarf warband on the line for use in the upcoming Mordheim campaign.

Our first Gorkamorka session was a couple weeks ago, and my first experience with the system was a blast. I played two games. The first was a basic ‘ grab the scrap’ sorta deal.

And that’s as far as I got. It was a lot of fun, I won the dwarf warband for Mordheim, and here are all the pictures I can find…

I was up against the Vipas often, as my work schedule meant I was usually only there for the second half of the evening...

Necromunda: Arachnophobia!

Our seventh and final session of Necromunda ‘season one’ was a relatively cooperative mission co-starring a whole mess of giant spiders. We discovered that our various missing gang members had been snatched by spiders, and set out to rescue them. There were only three of us this weekend, and we each selected five gang members to field.
… ugh…
It’s been weeks since I started this post. Let’s see what I can come up with at this point.

There were cocoons scattered all over the battlefield; some of these contained the gangers that went missing during the previous session (Hurricane Amy, for example), others contained random civilians whose families would pay to have them back, and the remainder contained dried husks. (We couldn’t save everybody, grin.)
There were several spiders on the battlefield when we started, and every spider death caused a random roll resulting in 0-2 additional spiders. I had a rough start, rolling terribly and losing both my leader Brynja Spearhavok and Calamity Jane Winchester, who went to her rescue.

I thought I was a goner, but my dice picked up, and the rest of my crew started to shine. Helkat had her best game ever, going several rounds in a row with the heavy stubber’s sustained fire, making a ridiculous number of successful ammo rolls and landing a huge number of wounding hits (six, I think, over the course of the entire game)!

Jailbird and Eva Destruction rounded out the crew and both performed admirably. At the end of the evening, the Saxon Violets scored well, and finished second in the overall campaign.
First prize was a Gorkamorka mob, and since the first place player had one already, he claimed a Necromunda hired gun instead and passed the mob on to me!

That's a Nob, a trukk with a Spanner and a Gunner, several Boyz, a Slaver and a couple Grots...

Gorkamorka is the next old school campaign being run in the shop, so I’ll have to make an extra effort to get out and play, now that I have this super sweet mob.
