After all the gluing and painting I was able to sit down for a game of Wolsung with my friend, Necron099, at the convention this past weekend. He chose the Pothole Market scenario as we had market pieces to use as well as crates. I really like how convention game tables are often a mix of different people’s collections. The cobblestone street he carved out of foam really helps sets the mood and sets off the figures wonderfully.

Our combined collections make for a nice looking battlefield.Our combined collections make for a nice looking battlefield.

We set up our objectives a little more spread out than the diagram in the book but the seemed to fit the terrain better.  They appear as black gears on the battle field pictures.  When activated they are green for Ash and Oak or red for the Inventors.

We opted for the “Deploy on opposite sides 6 inches onto the table”.

I won the bid for first turn and began to move my troops toward objectives and firing positions.  Zachary started on a rooftop near one objective and was able to even get one activation before adding a card to gain a second.  The Inventor’s used their first activation to have Ingrid line up her mirrors and shoot Singh dead before he could do anything.  Man, she is cold and deadly.
