For the Conwy Wargames Club game in February meeting I put on a game using the 7TV2 rules by Crooked Dice. I used 2 casts I hadn't used before The Beat and Crime. I also used the Double Agent character from the Shiva pack, because she looked fun.

Episode 1 'The Trumpton Job' saw a hastily organised stake out grabbing officers from where ever to try and catch the gang in the act. Our hero's didn't know where on Trumpton's high street the gang were going to strike.

The tough detective in charge (Gaz) placed 2 under cover PC's on the street while everyone else waited in the car or the van. The PC disguised as a security guard hid behind a roof top sign and the the other PC strolled the street.

Action started after a loud bang and shop alarms going off all over the place. 2 passed mind scores saw the beat focusing on the electrical store and the bank.
Inside the electrical store the underworld boss Elvis (controled by Tony), his code named for the job, regretted the fact Black and Decker hadn't been available as his examined the lack of wall between the bank and store. Boom Brenda the explosives expert on the other hand was enjoying herself.

Having the initiative Elvis's faithful lackey Ardama pushed the kidnapped bank manager towards his office. Elvis and Brenda followed. The Dai brothers headed for the roof of the store. Since there were no obvious stairs mind tests were needed to get up there. Luckily the brothers were led by Daivina and scrambled up.

Biggles, Algy ,and Ginger went to the front of the store realised the roof would be a better vantage point and headed there. The rest of the episode is told in pictures…

Is that the Urban Apocalypse terrain from Battle Systems? How do you like it.

Yes it is. I think it's a great set. Full of character and easy to put together.
