hey guys im back and starting this years necro/borderlands campaign ...
the rules we have chose to use are the ashwastes with the community edition ruleset overriding when applicable (weapon costs/skills etc)

things for you to look forward to seeing.

my journeyman gang with a 2 and a half foot long crawler tractor unit and live in trailer... plus the gang itself mostly using hasslefree and infinity minis.

a scavvy gang with 2 wheeled vehicles one covered in spikes, one with cages to catch prisoners/food... plus 1 leader/2 scalies, 12 scavvy and 3 necrodogs.

all new hired guns, a pitslave , crazy doc , a madman machete wielding cannibal and a few more heroic looking scummers.

2 defence force deserter gangs, one mostly made from female deserters and one dredd style more proffesional desert patrol squad.

a western style tech gang prospector team... and a cool looking bounty hunter troop.

as well as this i will also be logging and giving battle reports on all fights in a news report style.. and photos of EVERYTHING!..


soon...

As a new member to the forum it is just awesome when an old thread gets dug up and my jaw drops to the floor at all the epicness! Love the characters, the painting is top notch, the scenery is amazing and the variety of models used is fantastic. Would love to see more, can't wait for more photos!

I love Borderlands; It's similar in many ways to RT-era 40k. Irreverent, full of humour and with a background developed enough to be interesting but with enough gaps that anything fits. If you wanted to fight a gang of roller derby girls with rocket launchers, Borderlands is the setting (not that that's something that actually appears, but it would fit).

Isn't there a thread somewhere in the depths of Yak where someone started a BL rules conversion of some sort? I'm slightly considering adapting a ruleset I've got stored (mostly) in my brain. Just got to make it more about... acquisition of firearms.
