Wayne and Ziggy joined me for the next chapter in the ongoing Batman Miniatures Game story campaign I've been playing over a couple of years. Some of the boys in blue and a couple of Gotham's finest heroines had converged on the jail to prevent the getaway of the quartet of crooks. Ziggy commanded three SWAT team guys along with Rick Flagg, Wayne took control of Batwoman and Carrie Kelly while I ran the four bads.
My group started at the green circled area. The girls were at the top while the SWAT guys were at the bottom in the yellow circled area. The Helicopter LZ is the white square.
Killer Croc and Riddler couldn't resist the urge to go brawl with the caped crusader. Digger and Rose kept their options open.
Carrie looses a few bullets from her slingshot forcing Boomerang to duck and weave. Batwoman had managed to extract herself from the attention of Nigma and the Croc.
Of course, Ravager couldn't help herself and decided to have a go at Batwoman herself. Croc and Riddler head for the back alley.
Faced by a SWAT officer who was a bit slow on the draw with his shotgun, Digger rushed forward, quickly flicking two razor-sharp boomerangs. Both connected and the officer was knocked down!
Admiring his work, he forgot all about Robin behind him. He remembered right away though when a heavy lugnut hit him in the back of the head, sending him the the concrete.
Riddler and Croc continued through the vacant lot. Croc had shaken off the "funny little birdies" that Batwoman had treated him to. Rick Flagg was waiting for them. You can see him back there, posting up.
Carrie leapt back to give Bats a hand with Ravager who was proving to be a very tough opponent. Boomerang and the officer had regained the feet and were no going toe-to-toe on the sidewalk.
As a second cop descends on Digger, Croc hears his buddy's request for assistance. KC charges as the shotgun officer but does nothing more than surprise the underpaid public servant.
Riddler wasn't so loyal or sentimental. Quelle had just dropped in with the chopper and was going to get out. Of course, Mr. Flagg had other ideas and unleashed a violent storm of bullets, puncturing Ed's shoulder. He was in bad shape now!
Luck was with him though, Rick fumbled for a new magazine and Riddler dashed past, grinning as best he could. The helo lifted off quickly and was out of sight in no time.
Rose of course had seen that and muttered to herself about the quality of her associates. She was grateful for the jailbreak though and darted down an alley to get gone. One of the cops saw her and gave chase.
The SWAT guys and Carrie finally managed to take down Boomerang who had put up one hell of a fight.
Having seen his pal Digger get taken out, KC loped back to the manhole to make his escape. Rick and Kate move in to prevent his escape.
He struggles with the manhole as a shot from Flagg hits his lower leg. Croc falls to the pavement.
Batwoman dashes over and gives the big a tranquilizer. He's done.
So, a damn fine game. Two of the baddies got away while two are going to need some real medical attention and physical therapy. Riddler's attempt to get a couple of shady figures in is debt hadn't panned out so well. Ravager will be grateful for sure, but Croc and Digger will have a different opinion of things. Maybe those two will get adjoining rooms in the hospital while they're on the mend.
Wayne and Ziggy enjoyed it. Wayne had never played and Zig's only game was maybe 3 years ago. Sure ready for the next chapter, that for sure!
Happy Father's Day all you dads out there. Be well!
