Game 1  Tony expressed a desire to handle and control the cocks.

Tony set up with the prisoner in the "clink" at one edge, I took the side.




My advance was cautious and beset with failed rolls.




Clucky cautiously proceeds.


Air-mobile, the cockatrice pounces!



Kills one with claws, second with tail swipe to the head.


Clucky's close, real close.



Here comes Arnie.



Oh crap- the dead make excellent cover.





Arnie's MG takes out another one.


Cluckie comes in.


Arnie goes for the leader.


And that was the end of that!

Game 2.  Yes 2, so quick was the first.  Diverse alarums and side-swapping.  So now the cocks are in my hands.  I set up in the middle.



The Martians advance.


My turn with the air power, didn't do as well.


Sneaking-



Goes into cover, ready to pounce.


"Follow me lads!"


Stealth-Dodo.


"He's BEHIND you!"


1 down-


And second.  Flight back into cover.


Clucky advances.


"Hah, I have a pointy sword"  - bang!


Clucky cuts loose.


Close assault!


Oh no!  Clucky's cut down and clipped!


The Dodo do-do.


Stalking-



Cockatrice cuts!


Once again the Monstrous Mutant Cocks rule the roost!
