Good: the Olympics – Part 2

The shot put made for an interesting event in which you need to roll for consecutive inches that the shot covers, the roll getting harder by one each time. Becoming ever more tactical it was quickly worked out what amount of Good was needed to be put into the rolls to secure a 2+ requirement all the way to the 7″ mark, however 1 is always a failure, and 1 always comes up… However it would seem that the Kamino training regime works as Mark’s Clone trooper came out no top.

From the shot, onto the Pole Vault. A run up, then stick a pole in a hole then jump – the key to this event was to get close to the bar and then you could ‘vault’ the last few 1/16ths with an unmodified 11+ roll. Having a Good run up helped as this height was added to the vault. Here the successful vaulters form a line and ignore the failure that was the Aidan’s Ninja. Meanwhile, Optimus gets ready to go…

Here’s what happened:

You can just see Optimus at the side of the landing mat…

Tony’s Sandworm takes the run up (Must have the pole in it’s mouth…

And the roll for the ‘Vault’:

Yep, Tony wins again…

Next, and final event was the Javelin. Stand somewhere behind the line. Run towards the Line. Throw the Javelin before the line. Simple.

It wasn’t exactly rocket science, but somehow two of us managed to fluff a roll and hit someone else, causing severe Bad damage. But fortuantely no-one died from any horrific injures. And those same two also managed to fluff every other attempt… Billy on the other hand actually managed to clear the entire table and have his Javelin ended up somewhere in the middle of the village hall.

Miniatures making an appearance at the show

Here’s the first of my proposed list of the demo miniatures I’ll be taking to the Games Expo for use in the GtB games, trying to get a selection together to cover as many of the powers and miniature bonuses in the core rulebook:

3 more to decide on…

 

GtB: Daily Miniature Manual #66 – Repair Robot (R2D2 – in 6mm!)

Daily Miniature Manual

Well, a while back we had the 6mm Dalek on the GtB Miniature Manual, so I thought it’s about time we had another top notch miniature miniature (yes miniature was used twice then on purpose). I’ve gone a bit Star Wars-y recently, sorry bout that – I’m not on commission or owt, It’s just coincidence.

 Close Combat Bonus: +0

Ranged Bonus: +0

Other Miniature Bonuses: Flight

Suggested Powers: Really Good, Mechanic, Local Hero, Midget, Nigh-Invulnerable

GtB: Daily Miniature Manual #61 – Wicket the Ewok (Knight Models)

Daily Miniature Manual

When I saw this at Salute 2012 and realised it was a metal miniature that needed painting my head nearly exploded with joy. Now you can use GtB to rein-act all the classic Star Wars moments of tribal fuzzy hamsters attacking stormtroopers with sticks & stones and winning…

 Close Combat Bonus: +2

Ranged Bonus: +1

Other Miniature Bonuses:

Suggested Powers: Combat Master, Midget, Really Good, Stench, Naughty
