Wichita 812 is a garden world a farm world for the Federal States of America. The Russian-Chinese Federation wanted 812 badly and by badly it means desperately. The short nuclear war that Earth experienced mess up the ecosystem big time. The U.N. tasked Food Corp to provide nutrition for 8 billion people. The underground factories in the F.S.A. Midwest and Southwest regions can only pump out so much cloned foodstuffs for a starving population. Luckily for the F.S.A. They found Wichita 812 fifty years ago and The U.N.-Food Corp contract has made 812 a cash cow jewel in the F.S.A.’s crown.
The R.C.F. Invasion force emerged from sub-space and caught the F.S.A. Defense force around 812 unprepared but the battle was not one sided as the R.C.F. Had planned. The R.C.F. Did have more ships and was able to land a sizable invasion force on 812 before a reinforcement fleet from the F.S.A. Drove them off for a month or two to regroup and gather more forces. On May 3rd 2118 the F.C.A. Started the second battle of the Wichita Stars. A U.N. Observation fleet did not step in until the R.C.F. Started nuking several sites on planet. 812’s food charter changing hands from one power block to another did not concern the U.N. governing body one bit, but the loss of a food producing world to radiation poisoning by a sore looser is another!
Sgt. “Dutch” Swartz was mad! Mad because one of his men Jenkins had been captured by the Reds! Reds a archaic word unearthed for the R.C.F. Forces. Mad because of the low ammunition and rations for his men. Mad because the Reds had nuked several major cities. Swartz planned payback on the Reds and it was time for the bastard to pay the bill.
” Bifocals, Gunner and the F.N.G.’s are one team. Pretty Boy, One Shot and the redshirt boys with me. Jenkins is being held in that abandoned warehouse ahead. After we breech the doors Bifocals team goes left and we’ll take the right. Questions anyone?”
No one says a thing. Kitted up and ready for bear the Kill Team rushes the massive metal warehouse doors. Bifocals Team quickly peels off to the left and Swartz’s to the right. R.C.F. Troopers in their drab uniforms and gas masks patrol the gloomy interior their A.K. 2100’s slung over their shoulders.
One Shot lines up his cross hairs on the chest of a Red trooper and let’s off a shot that quickly downs the trooper. Gunner with the SAW guns down another, while Bifocals wings another. The Reds quickly returned fire and two Spetsnaz storm troopers appear from a shadowed alcove and plug two of the F.N.G.’s one going down to the heavy precise fire coming from the Spetsnaz.
Comrade-Captain Chin hears the gun battle from his office and knows that the Feds have come for their man. The Commissar hadn’t arrived from H.Q. to interrogate the prisoner which intel says is related to one of the F.S.A.’s elite houses.
” This Jenkins is not worth my life if I can’t relocate him I’ll kill him myself.” He says to himself as he looks at his Crome mass reactive pistol and punches the alarm.
” Looks like shits definitely hit the fan Sarge!” One Shot shouts as he takes out another trooper.
” That’s a understatement One. Team flank ’em and rush that far room! I just saw their bastard of a captain rushing to it. That’s got to be where they are holding Jenkins!”
Gunner roars as he guns down a Spetsnaz trooper his comrade ducks back into the alcove.
” New guy with me!” Gunner shouts as he pushes on into the darkness.
Swartz’s Team makes quick work of the remaining Red troopers and rushes a large bulkhead like door.
” Pretty Boy get us in before they off Jenkins!” Swartz shouts while reloading his pistol.
Pretty Boy pulls out a small keyboard and hard jacks a plug into the door control. A small holographic screen appears and Pretty Boy quickly bypasses the locks. The massive door quickly retracts into the wall. A Red trooper by a computer console looks up takes a shot that clips Pretty Boy and punches a red button that quickly closes the door.
” Ow! I’m going to try that again. Do you guys think you can plug him before I get shot again?” He says rubbing the scorched mark in his combat battle chest plate.
” Pretty you get that door open and I’ll do him myself.” Swartz’s says racking his pistol.
The door opens again this time Swartz, One Shot and Pretty Boy all open fire as it retracts into the wall. Mass reactive shells from Swartz’s pistol blow fist size holes into the trooper and One Shot and Pretty Boy’s hard rounds are just a injury to insult as the trooper is flung into the wall and slumps down very, very dead to the ground. Swartz spies the Red’s commander quickly exiting the area via a trap door.
” Riggs drop a few frag grenades down that trap door maybe it will get to Comrade-Captain and we won’t have to deal with that bastard again.”
” On it Sarge! Nube cover me!” Riggs says as he rushes the trap door two fraggers in hand.
Gunner trains his SAW on the last Spetsnaz who has his back against the bulkhead cell door. Discovering he’s locked out and out gunned he drops his weapon and quickly surrenders
” That’s right ya mankie Red bastard put ya hands up and no sudden moves! One of you F.N.G.’s put some cuffs on this bastard!”
Pretty Boy quickly bypass the locks on the cell door. The door opens to find a skinny black kid with his fist balled ready for a fight.
” Sarge!” He says in a high voice.
” Jenkins get your sorry ass over here. You know we leave no man behind.”
This bat rep was played using the new Rouge Trader Kill Team rules and a combination of Inquisamunda and the A.I. Rules from Fallout Wasteland Warefare with my son Commander Space Chicken. I had watched and played several games of Fallout Wasteland Warfare. Now F.W.W. is a terrific game and does bring a video game to a analog table top system. Then a bolt stuck why can’t Kill Team be like That?! And then I saw it could and I didn’t have to reinvent the wheel. H.O.R. Kill Team, Yaktribe’s N17 Kill Team rules are the answer. A more narrative way to play K.T. A in depth way for character development and using only a d6 system. I must post a picture of my Son’s amazing rolls this game he was on Fire! Gunners three sixes on hits and wounds. Here take a look.
Amazing rolls on hits and saves was very unexpected and very exciting. Now I’m no slouch on die rolls those last two K.T. games is how the R.C.F. ended up with Jenkins! Now me and M.J. Aka Commander Space Chicken are still going to play regular K.T., F.W.W. and other games. But as I say I want to sometimes play in my own universe have as grim dark, star warsize, mass effect like as I want. Until next time remember they’re your miniatures play with them how you want to!
