What have The Sentry Box staff been up to – Nov 22-28

Kris finished up two more Necromunda Models early this week. “I had been letting the standards slip and had fielded them unpainted for a couple of games but finally decided no more games until the gang is fully painted again! “Snips” was recruited for free from my Settlement territory, where after each game I get to roll 2d6 and if the result is a double six, I get a free Ganger (normally, you can recruit a Juve on a single six, but Slave Ogryn Gangs done have Juves…) Unfortunately, even though the Ogryn is free, I had to pay for his equipment right away which ate away at my credits. Luckily, I also have a Mine territory, and hired “Botty” to work in it. (And do some fighting I suppose…)”

Kris has been playing in an Alien RPG group while they are waiting for D&D to start back up. “Free League did a good job of making the system crank up as things progress with their Skill/Stress system. As it really feels like you are getting desperate as the game goes on. We played the Chariot of the Gods module from the starter box and it’s very different from anything I have played before as it definitely walks a line between being a traditional Role Playing experience and playing a social/hidden role game.  I don’t want to give out any spoilers though so won’t really say more than that. We all had fun though, there are lots of cool moments and the cinematic play really fits the style. It is definitely a game I would demo at the store like I did for Call of Cthulhu, but I would probably switch up the scenario as it took us closer to 8 hours rather than the 3-4 it says.”

Jordan painted one of the Stormcast from the new Underworlds box set during last Sunday’s painting demo. “My first model in over a year. Definitely feeling a bit out of practice and there are some spots I’d like to work on a little more, but I’m pretty happy with how he turned out. It was fun to put paint to plastic again, and I took some liberties playing with different techniques and colours on areas like the base.” If you want to get tips from our painting experts, contact the store and sign up for Sunday’s free Painting Demo.

Greg has yet to watch the new movie but he was still inspired to play a game of Dune: Imperium. “I managed to get off to a good start, generating 7 influence to pick up Lady Jessica and I was a bit smarter with my troops – sometimes holding them back for a future conflict. It was fairly even for the first few rounds but I managed to edge ahead up to 9 points and then I bought a card that bumped me up all four faction tracks, gaining me two VPs and ended the game with Tracy stuck on 8 points.”
