: Strontium Dog: The Killing 2188
: The Bissler 05 September, 2021, 12:44:14 PM
Hi all,

My good friend Allan Stenhouse is currently running a tabletop campaign using Warlord Games' Strontium Dog Miniatures Game and he is recording game reports to create an alternative dimension version of possibly the greatest S/D tale, The Killing. The reports do include aspects of the game mechanics, but I think it is his love for the source material and narrative that really shines through! I've converted his reports into a series of videos, but for those of you who prefer to read at your own pace, they are also available on my blog so I'm sharing links for both formats. The Prologue sets out the background to the story and shows you all 100 participants, all of whom will feature and fight until only 1 is left standing! From there onwards, it's action all the way...

So far 11 battles have been fought - and we're not yet half way through the campaign! So strap yourselves in because Allan's taking us on an epic journey...

Poor old The Blob.

Ha, thanks for watching Mr Barrington Boots! Yeah, I was really hoping to see the Blob make a similar kill to the one we see in The Killing - Allan had even worked out how he'd do the effect - but it wasn't to be!

Bout 15: The Outpost featuring Clacton Fuzz

In this episode, the contestants battle at The Outpost where prisoners may be freed and join the Killing! This is one of the most gruelling and unpredictable encounters of Allan's series so far - and my personal favourite!

After the Body Count jump on episode before Christmas, The Killing campaign for the Strontium Dog Miniatures Game will resume with a new episode this Friday and every fortnight thereafter until its conclusion!

Meantime, for anyone who'd like to hear some chat about tactics for the Strontium Dog Miniatures Game - which equally apply to the Judge Dredd Miniatures Game - may enjoy this podcast:


For anyone who's been enjoying the series so far, you may be interested in the last 15 minutes as Allan, who is running, recording and writing the reports (I just convert them into a video format), lifts the lid on some of the secrets behind the scenes.

I watched a couple of these this morning. While not normally my thing, they are really quite compulsive.

Thank you so much for this feedback which I’ll pass on to Allan. He always wanted this project to be something that fans of the strip who may not be interested in gaming would still enjoy - and it’s something of a love letter to the source material, so I’m sure he’ll be thrilled to hear this!
