Power Legion is a Hit!

Finally got two games of Power Legion to the table. The first game Dinoboy played Alex Drake and Maximan played Ambush. I played Morlock and the Dark Infernal. All characters are statted in earlier posts.

The battle commenced with Ambush taking and firing from cover. She pretty much took out Morlock before he could do much. Dark Infernal closed with Alex Drake and the two pummeled and flamed each other until finally Alex Drake brought the heinous villain low.

The second game we played took place in a ruined city after an alien attack. There were craters everywhere (Newly bought Pegasus Hobbies terrain and on my new 2' x 3' Zuzzy Wounded City battle mat).

In this game we played 4 models to a side: The boys played the following heroes (all statted in a previous post except Stonewall whose stats are provided below): Dinoboy was playing Alex Drake and Freezer Burn, while Maximan was playing Stonewall and Ambush.

I played Lord Dominus, Ogre, Battle Ape, and K'Thund. Battle Ape's stats were published in a previous post the other three characters are below for your convenience.

Here are some pics from the fight:

Battle Ape fell first having taken arrows from Ambush and an ice blast from Freezer Burn. He couldn't catch a break. Lord Dominus mind controlled Freezer Burn while K'Thund and Stonewall clashed. Stonewall eventually got the better of K'Thund (who had taken several arrows before closing with Stonewall), sending the beast to sleepy time land. Lord Dominus held out a bit longer having taken control of Stonewall, but a direct hit from Ambush ended his domination. Ogre stood until the very end, but finally fell under a pummeling from the heroes. 

In the games we used a Damage Effects Table I put together. If you are interested in using it in your own Power Legion games click HERE . I was really happy with how the table worked in combat. It added an extra layer of tension and structure to the damage roll.

In other news, we have brought X Wing to the table for a few skirmishes over the past couple of days. I forgot how fun this game is. Maximan is especially enamored with it. We just bought an E Wing at our FLGS. Here are some pictures of our dogfights. 

In the coming days there will be more games. Power Legion, X Wing? Who knows, but one thing for sure, the gaming table will be crowded. Until next time, dear reader, keep the dice rolling!
