Marbic receives a job offer from a guilder patron on Hydresar X. The crew have to ‘deliver a package’ and they will receive a generous reward.
Lady Heldycryn tours the town and meets Venda Hezel, a downhiver with a knack for tech. The crew has been suffering with poorly maintained weapons, and Lady H thinks she will be a useful asset. Marbic begrudgingly agrees, but it will eat into his profits… He decides to accept the job offer and get Hezel to ‘deliver the package’.
| Newcomer Venda Hezel. Will she earn a spot on the crew?|
However, someone is opposed to the crew’s mission. A bounty hunter is after them and has raised a vigilante posse!
|The central storage tank is the crew’s target|
|Roma, Lady H and Julio take one flank|
|The rest of the crew take the other.|
|Here comes the vigilantes!|
|They rush the centre|
|Hezel runs toward the tank as Chugger puts down suppressing fire|
|But she goes down!|
|The Bounty Man charges ahead of his heavy weapons|
|Roma comes under heavy fire|
|She prays to the Emperor as shots fly past her|
|The vigilantes run into a murderous crossfire,|
and a frag grenade finishes them off.
Julio picks up the dropped meltabombs and ‘delivers’ them to the storage tank. Hezel is lightly wounded but will pull through. The guild contact is satisfied and the crew get a generous ten credit payday. They drink together and tell stories, but Roma has found religion and now will talk of nothing else.
Back in the desert, a mutant rat sniffs at the Bounty Man. He’s not dead!
The Bounty Hunter is a super-fun sculpt from Imitation of Life
. I couldn’t bear to see him dead, so he will return in the future.
Our rookie, Hezel, is from Tagged Events
. Her arms didn’t print properly so I added some from the bits box.
