Death Star Trench Run - Playtest

JimCon 4 starts this weekend. Long in planning, the Conscripts will be hosting The Battle of Yavin Part II - The Attack on the Death Star. (I wrote about Part I here.)

A big spanner in the works was the utter failure of my priming of the resin surface panels of the Death Star. Long story short, I shall be stripping and re-priming 20 1-foot-square resin panels at some undetermined future date.

Undeterred, there is still Plan B, utilizing the GF9 mats and turrets we used in The Battle of Yavin Part I.

Recently we playtested Dagobah Dave's Death Star Trench Run Mission, with 8 Conscript players and two dozen model ships!

Here's a taste of the action:

"We'll have to destroy them ship to ship. Get the crews to their fighters."

Camera Roll-1137

"Several fighters have broken off from the main group. Come with me!"

Camera Roll-1140

"We're in position. I'm gonna cut across the axis and try and draw their fire!"

Camera Roll-1141

"The guns - they've stopped!"

Camera Roll-1138

"It's away!"

Camera Roll-1139

Tomorrow we shall run the scenario during Slot 6 at JimCon, at 1:30 PM. Should be a lot of fun!
