The story has reached its climactic end with Bond, the CIA, local Devon Ninjas and UNIT about to launch a combined surprise attack on Blofeld's secret underground base beneath Torquay Town Hall. It is here under the guise of his front company TorGaz that the evil leader has explored for shale gas in the local area but has in fact developed a secret missile launch pad, which will deliver an Ozone destroying rocket to explode over London thus driving up property prices outside of the capital and thus increasing the value of Blofeld's South West property empire. You couldn't make it up!!
|A base very similar to ours|
|On set, some of the stars go through their lines with actor/director Chas|
|The OZONE rocket on the launch pad|
|View from the control room|
|The Security room and lockers|
|Something was up!|
|Blofeld, Jaws and Odd-Jobb look concerned|
|Suddenly the alarm sounds|
|The Ninjas attack without warning in the generator room|
|Rosa Kleb joins the fight with the Ninjas|
With gunfire echoing in the rocket launch chamber, Bond made preparation to break out from the security room.
|Bond held prisoner with Honey Rider and other local community leaders plans his escape|
|Felix Leiter and the CIA infiltrate the base. Odd-Job and Jaws are suspicious|
|Bond makes a break for it while Honey Rider deals with the guards|
|Suddenly UNIT burst in through the main entrance as the roof doors slide back|
The fighting in the base was a war of attrition as the heroes on each team struggled to destroy the enemy and gain ascendancy, whilst Blofeld kept his guard close by in the control room and focussed on lauching his rocket. Would Bond and his allies be able to stop the relentless countdown?
Suddenly the lights and power were down, Will the Ninja captain, had dodged Rosa Kleb and her men and reached the generator control shutting down the power and stopping the launch sequence. Blofeld screamed into the tannoy with rage for the power to be reconnected. Meanwhile the fighting was now in the dark, and torches were in demand.
|Scaramanga holds off UNIT|
The power out helped the CIA team to dodge the counterattack by Jaws and Odd-Job all though two of their number were felled by the bowler hat. Felix Leiter charged the two guards on the door and fought his way in, keeping them occupied as Bond made his exit with Honey Rider and a foxy looking Science officer carrying what look like a bomb.
|Felix deals with Bond's guards|
|CIA man holds off Odd-Job, Jaws and the guard|
|Blofeld issues order over the tannoy|
|Suddenly Bond is in the control room|
|Hugo Drax tries to stop the bomb|
This had severe consequences, for as Drax went to pick up the bomb and throw it from the control room, it slipped from his hands (he rolled a one). He tried again, surely he would save the launch this time, but no, the bomb slipped from his grasp yet again (he rolled another one) and bang the bomb went off destroying the control panel and stopping the launch. Drax and Odd-Job were on the floor stunned by the blast.
|It's too late, Drax and Odd-Job are caught in the blast|
|UNIT destroy the generator to ensure the launch is stopped|
Thanks to Chas for what has to be the most laughs generated in a game all year. The laughing never stopped and the Bond puns were ongoing as Nick, our James Bond, sent his two female heroines ahead of him as he entered every room. All the CIA men were killed except who survived his encounter with Odd-Job and Jaws Thanks also to Nick, Vince, Everett, Steve M, Tom and Will my fellow co stars for a great day.
The Devon Wargames Group wishes everyone a very happy new year and looks forward to more wargaming fun in 2014
