Just a quick post today as we're heading out for the day.
I've managed to play a couple of games of Planet 28 using my standees and following a bit of soul searching about not using 'proper' miniatures, decided that the fact that I've actually managed to play a few games outweighs the fact I'm not pushing lead or plastic figures around a table.
My salvage team held the field both times but it was a close run thing as the mercenary team had heavier firepower than the crews pistols and it was more luck than anything that saved them. One got badly cut up by a warrior woman wielding a machete while the second got shot in the face with a shotgun but rolled high on his armour and their accurate pistol fire ended up forcing the mercs to retire.
I'm really enjoying being able to put together a full warband of 8-10 figures in a single sitting and actually see them in action and am hoping to put together some action packed games in the not too distant future and plan on creating some theme packs for folks to try out using Planet 28's open licence to present a warband with stats, a little bit of themed terrain and portraits and backgrounds for each.
I've still got a few more to finish off so I've got a full enemy list for Five Leagues from the Borderlands but I'm quite pleaded with how the little guys have thus far turned out and I'm really looking forward to trying out Five Leagues too!
Hopefully I'll get the force finished soon and get chance to put together the second enemy for my warband to face as well as some roadside villains too but thats a post for another day so in the meantime, All the best!
