Have you ever had a scenario where you had someone protecting a pipeline or water source?

I found the problem, your drains are clogged.

A little drano will clear that up

Have used a water source as an objective in Necromunda.

Related but different, in my homebrew western miniature rules have events and one is Montezuma's Revenge. Model is placed in reserve but can come out of an outhouse if one is on the table.

Yes, traveling through pipelines in Necromunda.

Do the WWII Germans defending the Normandy coast count?

I am surprised no one has brought this up, defense of a pumping station for the Alaska pipeline.

You're always good for a chuckle--and a fur ball.

Water source? Yes.
Water pipeline? No.
Other pipeline? Yes.
Waste water system? Yes.

And on a tangentially related note, over the past weekend I just got two quarterscale (1:48 – "standard" dollhouse scale (Barbie doll scale) is 1:12) dollhouse bathroom sets to use for 28mm terrain.

Great idea. I'm going to do that.

I mean, run a scenario involving defense of a water system, not sleeping in the sink!

There are entire such dollhouse scale plastic bathroom sets on ebay, and cheap too.

Toilets even: auction

Cacique Caribe – Yeah, I get 'em from Amazon for the same price point as the cheap ones. I have several bedroom, living room, and dining room sets. I just didn't have bathrooms yet. (The sink/vanity set can double for an industrial eyewash station.)
