Weird World War 2: POINT BLANK!

WEIRD WORLD WAR 2

I recently came across some archival footage of some Weird War actions using a modified version of Iron Ivan Games's Point Blank Skirmish Rules:

The Eastern Front, 1943

The Soviet "Little Klims" Iron Comrade Armor

T34s and Infantry support the Soviet assault.

Another aerial photo.

German forces advance through the tree lines.

A Heavy German Walker advances, the Von Stine.

A T34 attempts to engage the Von Stine!

The T34 misses!

But not the Von Stine!

A little Klim falls the walker, but will it recover?!

The little Klims advance, but the Von Stine rights itself!

One Klim gets smoked, while the other runs into the woods occupied by German infantry.

Screams are heard coming out of the woods as the Germans are butchered.

Germans dying everywhere!

Encircled by heavy armor and out of ammo, the Klim is taken down!

PLO T34/85 for Lebanon 1982

Adding to my PLO forces for the Lebanon Civil War, 1982

Here are some PLO soldiers from Mongrel Miniatures with a JFTM T34/85


I went with a very worn look for the T34. Also got some Jersey Barriers from JR Miniatures. All 28mm stuff.

The Night of The Glob, AAR

Night of The Glob

Here is the AAR of the Glob game we ran using Iron Ivan Games new Scenario for No More Room In Hell:



Downtown Fenixburg after the Glob has landed.

The USMC Rescue teams arrive via Sea Knight chopper.


Quickly teams Tango and Charlie spread out in the dark of night in search of Survivors...
"We'll check the car, you take your team and check that building.."

The car is clear, but a Glob is spotted!

Pvt Stine tries to fend off the Glob in Hand to Hand!

The Glob is stunned as it attempts to reconstitute itself!

Team Charlie becomes trapped inside the building which is leaking Gas!!
Out Front a Glob moves toward Team Charlie-
As an even larger Glob moves toward their building. Team Charlie flees out a back door and through an alley!

Team Tango makes it's way back to the Chopper and finds a Survivor, Pvt Stine faints after another encounter with a Glob. Encounter markers begin to close on the USMC, but are they more Survivors or Globs?!

Closer, closer...

They are Globs! And Team Tango takes tests on the Fear table. Sgt. Conley and Pvt Stine both pass out, but Pvt Gardner rushes into hand to hand and beats back the Glob from his comrades.

Safe for the moment!

Team Charlie rescues a wino and a cat lady and try to hot wire a RV as Globs begin to close around them.

Team Tango find 2 more Survivors, High Tower and Doctor Price.

Encircled by the Glob, Team Charlie sacrifices the Wino to the Glob to escape!

Run for the Chopper!!

Here comes a big one!!

Fire splits it apart!

But doesn't stop it from reaching hand to hand, Fear tests are failed and Pvt Gardner bolts while Pvt Stine faints again and is eaten by the Glob. Only Sgt. Conley of the team makes it back to the Chopper.

Team Charlie makes a mad dash for the Chopper!

The Globs encircle the Chopper as the Teams attempt to fend them off while they lift off.

In the end Team Tango rescued the most Survivors, but lost 2 Team members, Stine who was eaten and Gardner who was left behind!


The game was a lot of fun and really shows how versatile No More Room In Hell is for all types of Survival Horror gaming. This ran about 2 hours with lots of laughs and tension to go around. Give it a try:

THE GLOB!

It is at great personal peril that I now take you through the process by which the Glob, the Doom of Humanity, came into being. May God have mercy on my soul.




Here we can see the elements and tools needed for the Glob's creation, safely shielded by the Lab's solid walls of 3 inch thick Impervium.
Red Ink
Washers
Glue gun and glue sticks for said glue gun
Household cement
Decorative Marbles
Triple Coat Krylon Gloss spray

Here is a close up of the most important ingredients, the glass marble accents used to fill some banal vase of flowers, but here weaponized and used to create flesh eating Hell Jelly. They are highly reflective and flat on one side. Also noticeable is the Daeg Rune I received from the time I spent abducted by Norwegian Pirates on one of my Explorations of the North Seas, but that is another story...

Step 1: Glue the Glass beads to the washers/bases using a household cement, nothing fancy, just get them on there. You can fit more than one on if you want to create some variety.

Step 2: Fire up the hot glue gun, use about a stick, stick and a half on no more than 3 bases.


Step 3: You need a needle, piece of wire or similiar instrument. While the hot glue is still tacky, push into the glue with the pin and pull outward. This will create the tendrils with which the Glob will feed with.

Here I am performing this task. Notice how the Glob is becoming animate and lashing itself around the needle, sensing the heat of my flesh holding it. Be very careful at this point.


Step 4: Once the Globs have cooled and have gone into a state of hibernation, begin painting them with red ink. Here you can see some vintage GW ink that has lasted over 10 years.

The Globs receiving the coat of Red ink.

They begin to stir again...


Step 5: Seal the Globs now with the Gloss coat spray.


The Finished Terror...

More to Come,
Doc
