Five Parsecs. Campaign Game 17. Ambushed!

Link to previous thrilling instalment

Gallius Marbec leads most of his crew through the underhive. Little do they realise they are being expertly stalked...

"Marbec is here. We must stop him. You two, with me."

"I've sent two troopers to flank and pin him."

Marbec and his crew continue, oblivious to the threat.

Marbec on the right, troopers to the top and left.

The flanking troops open fire.


"Roma!" cries Julio, as his lover goes down!

Marbec and Hezel take cover, while Julio and Chugger charge towards the enemy.

Chugger distracts the enemy with wildly inaccurate fire...

... allowing Julio to flank their position.

Well-drilled, the troopers return fire...

... allowing Chugger to get close!

Without missing a beat, the troopers charge the ogryn.
Who are these guys?

They fight hard- Chugger is lucky to take one down.

With a vicious countermove, the trooper takes Chugger out!

"Just where we want them- neutralise them!"

Hezel goes down to fire from behind!

Julio clears the way as Marbec and new guide
Stazie sprint to the nearest door. 

Marbec looks back only to see the mysterious hunter gun down Julio!

The underhive is getting too hot for Gallius Marbec. He's made a lot of enemies- including these well-equipped mysterious professionals. Chugger shrugs off his wounds, but Hezel ends up in sick bay. Roma wakes up there as well- only to find that Julio, her star cross'd lover, is dead.

Julio Rybeck- betrayed his gang for love
and dreamt of fame as a bounty hunter.
Bled out behind the pipes in Subsector 23-theta.


"Ma'am, Marbec got away but we hit his crew hard."

"Emperor damn you. We were just trying to talk and warn him..."


  1. Your story gets more and more interesting. Great layout for gameplay, cool figures as well.

    1. Thank you! I have enjoyed putting it all together.

  2. A great gaming report. I thoroughly enjoyed it!

  3. Fantastic game and exciting AAR. A minute of silence for Julio, I got fond of him along the campaign!

  4. Great AAR Barks! Glad to see you back with Marbec, but poor Julio - it was never meant to be.
