Black Ops - part 1

Just a short update this time.

I am ready to play my first game of Black Ops from Osprey.
I  will be sending my Orks (fanatics profiles from the book) on espionage mission to steel some data from Human base. All of this will happen on the Compound table, with data being stored in the central building (gun store).

Human forces are mix of conscript profiles (representing Imperial guard) and special operation profiles (Space marines Ace and Heavy). Humans will be run on programmed opponent rules from the book.
Programmed opponent in Black Ops bases itself on two tables - one for unaware opponents going on their everyday business and one for enemies in action, which should give realistic behavior for the enemy forces. Sounds good, and how it plays I will check during the weekend.

Important thing to know is that Black Ops is a card activation game, that uses standard deck of playing cards to determine initiative.
Well, just to keep in the spirit of the game I want to play, I made my own custom deck - somehow it seems nicer to me.
I plan to play this game during the weekend, so stay tuned to see how it went.


  1. Thanks for the tip about this system, I am reading it now and it seems very interesting indeed. And nice custom cards too!

  2. Oh that deck looks nice. I'll have to add a custom deck to my work queue. Looking forward to the after action report.

  3. Intriguing. Looking forward to see how it plays out.

  4. I like the cards! That's very inventive.
