After doing a version of Hidalgo Fire (go here for a brief overview of the battle http://www.lead-adventure.de/index.php?topic=81792.15) using the miniatures we had it was time for the Final Flight. Instead of Morocco we set it set in Ruritania, where the peasants were once again revolting (the peasants are certainly revolting). Various Americans and other Europeans were desperately trying to get out of the country, while the dreaded Black Guard protected the airport. The soldiers and the drunk were the perilous areas, with the crate being guarded by another soldier (extremely perilous) and the slick talking Ticket scalper stood on the other side of the field (also extremely perilous). I rolled up starting with a hidden character (pretty useless in this scenario) while Adam got to place two more perilous areas (soldiers) where they would cause me the most trouble.
Here is my starting position. Notice the soldier guarding the crates I need to get into. Yes, my gang consists of gorillas in snappy suits carrying Thompsons. I have a back story that makes it make perfect sense, well perfect sense in a pulp sort of way.
Adams setup. Just a bunch of stinking hummies and one noble but stupid gorilla. There is that slick talking ticket agent in the straw hat and yellow tie
Both sides spent several turns moving around. dashing from cover to cover, both sides too afraid to start a fight and start the extreme peril.

Adam advances his people.
I advance mine.
The Big Boss (the Gorilla in the nice pin-stripe suit) gets involved with the plot point at the crate. Bananas, the second in command took too long. Not that the boss was any better, rolled 4 eight siders, just needed one success, got none.
Adam's team made it to the plane with Lady Elaine, shortly after the gunfights started..
I finally, a turn after Adam got Lady Elaine to the plane, got the Mechanic working of some sabotage. I blazed away with Mr. Yellow, then charged with my War Ape (Experiment 13). That was a mistake because it blocked my best shooter, the Boss, from firing.
I've been gaming since the 1970's and even wrote some RPG adventures in the 80's for the Judges Guild. It seems that I can only get in miniatures is gaming at cons, but I do regularly play boardgames and RPGs.
