This is one of those games that is always fondly remembered by our long beards.
It's regularly gets mentioned in the news threads when new fliers get releases in 40K.

I'd never played it.
Recently I've been playing another Andy Chambers game Dark Deeds, which is really rather good.
So I thought I'd go on eBay; buy a copy of Bomberz and give it a go.

I found the game was a blast to play and the 6 planes in the box set great fun to paint.

In the game the 4 Ork Bombers have to blow up two bridges.
The imperials have to try and stop them!

However in My first game down the pub!
I noted that while Playing as the Orks is great fun blowing things up; I was a little disappointed as the imperial player, because most of your forces are represented by card tokens.

So I decided to update the 2d chits to 3D miniatures too.
Some WIP

Mobile Flak - Epic scale hydra tanks - mk1 and mk2
Stationary Flak - Epic hydra turrets mounted on Killa Kan feet.
Rock spires - scratch built 1 with putty and recast in resin.
Lazers defences - scratch built by raiding my City of death bits box.

The imperial player gets 6 tokens at random from 12 available.
Interceptors to hunt down the ork planes.
And a mighty Laser defence that can kill a Ork jet with one hit.
The local terrain itself forms part of the imperial defences; rock spires damage ork jets that try to fly past too fast.
Flak tanks hold strategic positions, their flak drive off the Orks and sometimes bring them down.

Now I'm ready for some serious River Raids!

I cut down a foam tray to fit the box so the miniatures are protected.
It's a great time filler, games lasting about 30mins.

I do recommend; if you can get a copy at a reasonable price you pick it up

That is great! I've wanted to do similar for years and just never got around to it.

That's an excellent use of Epic minis! I can only imagine how much more fun the game is with such well painted little models.
