Dr Who Napoleonic Retreat From Moscow Game at Cold Wars

Greg Priebe, a relatively new member of the HAWKs, is a real Dr Who fan, and after running a successful Dr Who game at Fall-In, decided to do a follow up one at Cold Wars. This one was in keeping with the 1812 theme of the convention:

S-266 - Russian Treasure, French Tricorn, The
TARDIS - Theme Game
Sat. 9:00 AM, 4 hrs, 8 players
GM: Greg Priebe with Todd Harland-White and HAWKS
Napoleonic 28mm, Rules: DR Who
The sequel to Fall In 2011’s “Victoria Hawkes & the Steel
Menace”: The TARDIS’s malfunctioning randomizer has landed
the Doctor, his companions, and adventuress Victoria Hawkes in
the midst of Napoleon’s invasion of Russia. To make matters
worse, the French have gained access to new alien weapons and
are back on the offensive. Does a mysterious artifact of immense
power hold the key to victory? Can the Doctor overcome both old
and new foes, set history straight and get everyone back to their
correct centuries before Napoleon and his new-found allies march
on to victory?

The 10th Doctor was in play for this game, along with an assortment of helpers including K-9.

With the battle swirling around him, the Doctor managed to complete a number of other tasks located around the battlefield.

Due to an injured leg, Greg was forced to GM the game from a seated position, with one leg propped up. Despite this, everyone seemed to have a great time, and really got into the spirit of the game.
