Well this weekend I decided to get some Fallout action in on the tabletop and so my girlfriend and I played a small skirmish game involving an intrepid band of NCR Rangers attacking a raider camp as retribution following the ambush of an NCR Caravan. The rules used were my own modification of 1987's Rogue Trader.



The raiders (represented by classic GW Necromunda Orlocks) were poorly equipped, poorly trained and outnumbered the Rangers 4:1.



The Rangers (Black Scorpion Cowboys) however were much better armed and had far superior stats giving them a good chance of success if used properly. Luckily my girlfriend was quick to realise that using cover and getting the NCR's finest into good fire positions was the key to success and so set about doing this as soon as practicable.


Eventually this tactic paid off and she was able to start to dominate the battlefield with her high-powered rifles whilst her pistol and shotgun troops quickly closed the distance to their foe.


This left the raiders on the back foot and many of their number were still in the camp as their front-line was shattered under the force of cowboy rifles and shotguns.


With this initial loss of momentum the raiders were never able to regain the initiative and eventually a lone ranger (get it...lone ranger) was able to creep into their rear lines and seize the objective from them!

Overall this was a great game and really reminded me of playing the original Fallout all those years ago. I think with the miniatures, the narrative and the bespoke terrain I was really able to capture the character of the California Wasteland.

There is a slightly more detailed BATREP and a lot more photos on my blog at:

What I love about this, is not only did you use RT rules, but you also used colored lichen and piles of bark chips very much in the theme of Rogue Trader pics from the book. Very cool, and looks awesome!

Cheers mate.

I actually ordered a load of old school gaming materials specifically for this game as I felt they would suit the setting nicely. I'm really pleased with how it turned out!! I may well order some more soon.
