Pulp City Turf War!

This week  Downtown Pulp City was in chaos as supremes clashed in the streets, demolished buildings, set of explosives, chucked cars about and generally caused havoc. Primate Terrorists (Freedom Fighters?) A.R.C. clashed with Dead Eye and his team of motley 'heroes' in what appeared to have been a turf war. The insurance claims for the resulting carnage is expected to exceed $15 million. 

Le Murtiple, Silver Ager, Virus, Apebot, The Primate of Power, Doctor Red and Guerilla

Harrier, Jade Hawk, Gentleman, Dead Eye, Amok, Repost and Pixel. 

Gentleman takes up a sniping position far above the streets. He thinks he is safe from the Apes. 

Silver-Ager makes his way up one flank with a couple of his latest inventions. 

ARC decide the easiest way to get the slippery Jade Hawk off a rooftop is to bring the whole building down. Luckily they have just the ape to do that! Apebot makes short work of the office building...

...then makes short work of the unfortunate Jade Hawk

Guerilla and Doctor Red try to keep Amok at bay by driving him back with a hail of minigun shells and grenades, but it just seems to make him more mad!

Silver-Ager looses his patience with the Gentleman and throws a car at the building gentleman is sniping from, trying to destroy it, but even though it is badly damaged it is sill standing. 

Now incandescent with rage Amok takes out Guerilla and Doctor Red in a single rage filled explosion. 

Apebot finally batters Amok down before turning his attention to Pixel. 

The mission objective was for either side to get a supreme into the enemies deployment zone while preventing the enemy getting into their zone. The end resulted in a draw. Le Murtiple managed to take down Gentleman, but he escaped thanks to his Stun Grenade ability, which meant that in the final turn Pulp Citizen had a single supreme in his own zone (with 1HP) with Le Murtiple,  and Pixel and Repost in my zone, with Apebot, Virus and The Primate of Power. 

And I would have got away with it if it wasn't for that pesky stun grenade!

Thanks for the game and posting the report mate. :)

I thoroughly enjoyed the latest game, and to me 3 moments captured the masses of destruction Pulp City brings to the tabletop:

1. Apebot tearing the building down in a mighty dice loaded attack!

2. Silverager realising that Gentleman was out of his range, but trying to destroy the building Gentleman was stood on by throwing a car at it! (How many other games allow a model to do that?).

3. Amok, loaded with dice from the attacks he received, unleashing the mother of all attacks against the unsuspecting Guerilla and Dr. Red. :)

Yes it certainly had more than it's fair share of 'collateral damage'.
