Tuesday 9th October.
Due to spousal returns and forgotten plays,Wednesday's game was transferred to this evening and due to nobody else being available for selection El Presidente for life Colin Jack and myself indulged in an evening of In Her Majesty's Name but with a difference as the characters involved came from Bryan Talbot's Grandville graphic novel series.
|The casino in question.|
|An oft used harbour.|
|Billie watching the bar.|
|The steamer tramps in.|
|LeBrock and his hearties.|
|And Angus is still there.|
|Ratzi waits albeit rather blurred.|
|The baddies approach.|
|Hawksmoor chit chats with the camels.|
|Tiberius Koenig appears.|
The game kicked off with the baddies approaching the casino from two directions with Koenig's two lieutenants arriving off Colin's newly built tramp steamer which didn't auger well for me as my character Ratzi was keeping watch at the casino front door putting him straight into the firing line of the two goons.Billie was set up in the casino in order to watch for any internal shenanigans.My main guy was watching the casino back door whilst Hawksmoor acted as a reserve spending his time chatting up a couple of camels.
|The Brits are in town.|
|"Play it again,Sam"|
|Billie spots the approaching pachyderm.|
|Only to be grabbed by Koenig.|
|Actually Billie put him on the deck not LeBrock.|
|The gallant clerk goes hand to elephant's foot with the bad guy.|
|My kind of barmaid.|
Tiberius Koenig then entered the building with the intention of grabbing Billie and using her as a shield to ward off LeBrock's advances.This started okay for Koenig but Billie wasn't giving up without a fight and resisted his advances giving LeBrock a chance to close the distance and defend his lover's honour.
|LeBrock goes down in the second.|
|But bounces back up-not bad for a badger.|
|One out of place submarine but it does give me an idea for a Thirty Nine Steps game.|
|And another lot out of another film.|
|The local ruins.|
All figures supplied,scenery and scenario provided by Colin who once again provided us with a repast before the game.
See You All when I See You.
