Retro gaming night - Space Hulk

More retro gaming this time with Space Hulk.

A couple of games later and my friend decided it was not for him :( as it was too tactical.
First game I was the Genestealers. Second game I was the Marines.

Mission was to flame the room Top Right of picture.
 Scott takes the first go as the Marines and slowly advances keeping most of his Marines on over watch. He manages to keep pulling the high command point counters.
Marines Looking good.
 The back marker is on over watch to protect from a few Genestealers lurking behind the Marines. The Marine Sergeant is on lone over watch down the  second corridor and had already fought off several Genestealers in hand to hand fighting. The flamer armed Marine is escorted by two Marines who were on over watch. The board was looking good with only 1 blip and 3 Genestealers in the vicinity; easy pickings for the Marines...
Ermmm.... Where did every one go?
 Well that was a shock for Scott, After the Sergeant again fought off another Genestealer, it looked like it would be a case of just mopping up, but the Genestealers luck was about to turn and 3 Marines fell in quick succession....
"20 metres, 10 metres, 5 metres...They are coming out of the walls"
 The Sergeant was about to become Genestealer fodder as Six Genestealers appeared next to him. The Lone Flamer armed Marine hears the bursts of Storm Bolter fire abruptly stop, and all he could hear in his ears was the crackling of a silent coms relay...  What was that scratching noise coming from down the corridor.... Mission Failed....

Next it was my turn and I played a blinder. Although I lost most of my Marines in quick succession, I had managed to get my Flamer near the target room, but had not enough command points to finish the job. With my last marine facing down 3 Genestealers to the front of him and two behind he need to make this count. With 4 action points and 1 command points he needed to kill the Genestealer in the lead...
1st Shot... Missed
2nd Shot... Missed
3rd Shot... Hit
4th Shot...Miss
5th Shot... Hit
With the last shot he knew he was doomed but the mission would be completed as none of the Genestealers would be able to reach, let alone stop the last Marine from flaming the room.
Hurry up and flame that room dude. I am in deep doo da!!!
Game on...
