|The Mask and the Botchergate Ruffians start their search|
|The Ruffians spread out on the edge of town Comrade |
Smirnov takes up a position looking down the main road.
|From the other end of Town the Earl and the Fops start to look|
for the crates as well but they aren't all really concentrating !
|The Ruffians move across the allotments|
|One of the fops climbs up the gas tower but forgets to|
take his glasses with him
|The Earl and Obediah search crates around the |
gas tower. Lady Violet makes a run for it but Smirnov
has her in his sights
Much of the action was taking place around the allotments and the gas tower, but in the distance Lady Violet had already located some of the plans. She immediately made a dash for home but found it hard to run in her expensive finery. (although close up she has a special rule making it -1 to hit her due to her breathtaking/beguiling beauty this doesn't work at long range) and sadly Comrade Smirnov is no lover of the British aristocracy. CRACK went his sniper rifle .......and she fell.(the normal standards of British decency clearly not applying i have chosen to blank out the undignified scene above) Thankfully although she dropped the plans I believe she made it home, cross that the lovely green dress was torn and covered in blood !
|Mrs Bowman on the other side of the Road brings a Ruffian|
to the ground with her shotgun.
|Arnold with the Arc weapon walks slowly forward, anxious|
that it hasn't been properly tested yet !
|Having come on in the Allotments the Peelers make straight for|
Charlie Hickmen who is squaring up to one of the Fops
|Back on the main street Arnold is still winding up the Arc gun|
|A badly aimed shot takes out his hunting companion|
|Both the Earl and the Mask attempt to get away.|
|Charlie Hickman is captured by the Peelers but the rest|
of the gang run for it covered by Smirnov.
