What were you doing before you startedwith Target Games, and what kind of experience did youhave?N e i l : I used to make and repair musical instruments, and then Iworked in a game shop. I 've a lways enjoyed painting , makingscenery and collecting figures. I've done that since Iwas 13.This seems more like a hobby than a jobl I was lucky enoughto meet my favorite figure designer and speak to him a fewtimes. He was very positive and helpful. Watching him workwas inspiring.

A few words of wisdom ...N e i l : Tha 's hard, as I'm still a beginner myself]First, you have to study anatomy; you can't playthe game until you know the rules. Start bychanging an existing model; cut off the arms orhead and make new ones, and slowly build up to making a fullfigure , Learn from your mistakes and AIM for perfec tion. Youhave [0care about your work, or you won't get very far.

    C h r o n i c l e s :How didyou cometo SCUlptfor TargetGames?N e i l : I made

    room for improvement. Let's just say the best is yet to come.some figures as anexperiment. InquisitorNikodemus. FemaleMortif icator and FemaleHeretic were my firstcomple te figures . I sentthem to Bob Watts in theU.S . and within a week Iwas making personalitiesfor Warzone! I was rea llyth r own in at the deepend!

    C h r o n i c l e s : Thanks, Neil! Just a few quick final questions:F a v o J il e F i lm s : J like too many to list; I don't really have afavorite.F a v o r it e M u s ic : Anything and everything. c lassical to industr ia l. Ilisten to Nine Inch Nails when Imake Dark Legion figures!F a v o r i l e D r in k : Waterl

Recently, Den Devils have beendeployed against the Dark legion on other planets,and not only underground either. For example, inhis commitment to the Cartel, lord Moya sent adetachment of Den Devils t\l serve with the multi-corporate force at Barnes River GOI~ge.

    APPEARANCEThe Ronin of the Den Devils wear a camouflage uniform ofdeep blue splashed With mustard yellow. algae brown-greenand b lack , The warheads are painted the same pattern.Their color scheme for surface operations is very different,however. In keeping with Mishima military doctrine, theiruniform is not meant to c on ce a l t hem . The uniform isintended to help allies locate them on the battlefield. and rodearly identify which unit they belong to. The uniform of DenDevils assigned to surface duty is. therefore, patterned withshades of blue" orange and yellow. Ronins' shoulder pads areorange-yellow, as are their arm and leg plates. The uniformdoth is camouflaged in yellow tone-patterns.

    ORGANIZATIONA5 part of his personal warhost, the Den Devils are controlleddirectly by Lord Heir Maya. Despire this, he often commands

    Though one of your corporation's most respectedcommanders in the Warof'68,Joseph Conrad is nowconsidered a renegade. Few know what happened to him:many believe the war's toll was too great; that he wentinsane. Others claim he turned-coat. that he made a pact withthe Dark Soul i tself.Your force has been sent deep into the Venusian jungle tofinally track him down. He is suspectedof staging attacks against his formercorporation's basesthroughour this sector. Yourmission is to locate him andreturn him to headquarters, for"debriefing". If he really is a

    Heretic, he must be terminated. If not, he will be "retired".One thing is certain, having-a madman like Conrad on theloose is asking for trouble. Intel ligence indici ltes he remainsin command of a substantial force; most of these menunaware the war they've been fighting ended 11 decade ago.

Both gun emplacements must bemanned heavy weapon-armed models .Your force must include one demolitions expert. to fire theClaymore Mines deployed around the perimeter. Therefore, atleast one individual model must be included in the force.

Ifthe result is 20 or more. the flare has burned out:remove the marker from play.


    add a further element of uncertainty to movement of troopsunder cover of darkness, One possibil ity. to simulate theSecret Kohorts' observation of the corporate force, is to allowonly the Algeroth arnly to use these rules.

    ADVANCED RUL.ES FOR HI.DEOn a real battlefield. it's almost impossible for enemies toknow the exact composition of each other's forces. InWarzone this is not the case. Although you place a Hiddenmarker beside a model, your opponent can plainly see whichof the hidden figu res are carrying heavy weapons, which areindividuals and so on. He can men avoid them.The rules below are meant to correct this. They will add somecomplexity to your games, but will not bog you down.

    PREPARA.TIONSYouwill need a few sheets of Hide markers . With a pen orpencil, one that doesn't show through, write a number on theback of each marker; one number for each squad you willfield. You're making Hide markers for every figure in yourforce, identifying: separate units and individuals by assigningthem different numbers. You could also use unit names, suchas Squad jeremiah, Alpha Squad or Hishotiro's Squad. It's upto YQu , as long 3- S you know which set of'Hide markersto each squad and ind iv idual .You will not need to know which specific trooper a markerbelongs to, since troopers are troopers, whether they're johnDoe or Graham Gamer. You will, however, need to makedist inct markers for leaders and special ly armed models {i.e.,those with heavy or support weapons) in each squad. since itcan marter who, and where. they are.Now you should be set to go!

    THE RULESThe basic rules ar-ereal ly simple. When a f igure goes intohiding, replace the miniature with the appropriate Hidemarker. When the model loses its hidden status, return themodel to tbe table. When you Rut the model back on thetable. you are free to face it whichever way you like; it isassumed he is looking in the most advantageous direction.rules for Hide and SPQt in Warzone apply normally.These are optional rules (like jungle Rules. in Dawn of War)you C3n use in any Warzone,.game, not just this one. A5withother optional rules, players must agree to use these beforethe battle.

    VARIATIONSThis scenario can be played equally well with twoopposing corporate forces, or, with the Dark Legion,at tacking or defending, The possibi li ties are endless.What if the corporate player layssiege to Secret Kohorts' camp? Whatif the defender is al lowed specialevents, instead of the attacker? ~nwhich case the defending forceshould be downsized to 600 polnts.)Whar happens after the scenario? Dothe corporate forces locate Conrad? Ifso, what happens? This coulddeveloop into a very excitingcampaign. In fact, I think I'll sink myteeth into that and write it L 1p for myown group.For added suspense, you can use theAdvanced Rules for Hide, below. They

    Dark Eden introduces ninenew special abilitiesavailable tQ the nativeforces of the ScorchedEarth. All are unique tothis sett ing, and designedto sin ulate the natives'novel styles of fighting.

    The Gunfighter specialability allows a model tofire two weapons in one

    action. The zealots ' Sacrificial Run is akin to Banzai Chargebut with more dire consequences for both the model using'hand the model being attacked. Uttering an enraged scream,the zealot charges the closest enemy at double move. andinitiates a close combat he won't leave until he, or all enemieswithin sight. are dead. Other special abilities includeMartyrdom, Herding, Storming 'and Lamented, [0 mentiononlya few.

    BEASTSToward us, thundering over thewasted battlefield camenightmare beasts, hulkingcreatures' intent on killingeverything In their path. Thatmeant us. Ridden by the mostcourageous native Warriors, thebeasts were terrifying to bothfriend and foe. Standing in theirpath was madness. But, 'tnere Westood. to receiv their charge.Each native force in Dark 'Ed!!nhas its own beasts; be theyRasputin Cossacks, Tem:plarCavalry. Triad Cavaliers or


    Crescen ian Eclipse Mammoths. All employ great lumberingbeast~. all fwhich rage across the battlefiel .Rules for beasts are faithful to the style of War zone -imple, yet realistic. Beast and rider are handl.ed with oneprofile. After all, they fight as a single creatu e. so a secondprofile is redundant. They fight.and one model.Each native force uses its beasts differently, but reest aredeployed as mobile firing platforms or close cornbatjuggernauts. In close combat, either the rider or the beastmay attack. Beasts can be very deadly because many ofthemcan make several close combat attacks in one action.That's not something you want to face on the battlefield,

    Unless of course you've also got one to counter it,SPECIAL MODELS

    The standards of the Sons Of Rasputin always flutterominously over their battlefields, trengthening the resolve ofthe Sons' army.

    During play testing J found the lack of ranged weaponrymost difficult to neal with. At first it led to widespread,swirling melees on the battlefield. Being used to regularWarzone battles, I s aw no other way to use my troops. Asplaytesting progressed. I realized close quarters fightingdoesn't necessarily mean close combat. a revelation thatadded many new dimensions to my games.

    SONS OF RASPUTINThe Sons Of Rasputin are strongest in northern andnortheastern Old Europe. Their ever-expanding Reichrecognizes no boundaries. All who resist their technologicalwar-machine suffer dire consequences.The Sons of Rasputin are my favorite force. I prefer thembecause of the great diversity in their troops. They have thebest firepower among the native forces - their selection ofheavy weapons is unmatched - and are relatively wellarmored. But, they also have Some cool special troops; likeJaeger Commando Soldats, poorly-armored madmen who taketo the skies suspended beneath hang-gliders. This diversity introops, combined with their imagery (which counts a lot when

    choosing a force),makes them amust-have for mycolleen on.The backbone ofthe Sons' army. theStosstruppe, i~theSoldat Troopers.We\ armored, andarmed withowerfuJ assaultrifles, their

    specialty is intense fire-and-movement. Reinforcing theTroopers are Shock Soldats.commandos armed withterrifying gas weapons.The Stosstruppe couldn'tbe what it is without the

    Cossacks. Astride their largeRivetbulls, they charge theenemy with sabers whirling.Supporting their charge aremassive Cossack Heavies,hug bestial weaponsplatforms.In addition to the core

    forces, the Stosstruppe hasseveral Special Forces units.TheseindudeJaegerCommando and ShockSoldats, as well as CossackScouts, 0 name only three.
