St Kelly's Day Massacre

For GW's Birthday celebration in Australia the shop ran a special game wherein all the shop regulars got to partake in a bring and battle, setting up a pack of Imperial Knights to take on a Phantom Titan in a 2 out of 3 clash to see if they could destroy the monstrosity.  What resulted is what one of my friends referred to as the St Kelly's Day Massacre.  It was an absolute riot of a game.

As a bonus rule any knight that wore a party parasol got a special rule, once it had been destroyed the player got to roll 2D6 and in the event of doubles the Knight miraculously survived with a single hull point remaining!

While at the shop I mentioned that I kind of felt like I was in Aliens, attempting to gun down Xenomorphs before they got to me, and any game where Imperial Knights are being compared to Xenomorphs for their numbers and relentlessness is a uniquely fun experience.

The music is a shortened Dual of the Fates from The Phantom Menace and the quotes are from Henry V, Macbeth, Hamlet and King Lear respectively.

Enjoy the frivolity!
