And if you try sometimes, you just might find… you can't get what you need, either.
1st mission for my group is recon to flush out some Eldar scavengers and figure out how they'r egetting planetside in the first place. They will need a satellite map, compass/positioning tools, long-range vox, artillery authorization, a chimera and trailer to carry the squad and their walker…. and unfortunately get none of it. Instead, they got a box of 50 rations, a duffel of dirty uniforms, and a bunch of Ogryn dress uniforms.
Ouch. They squirrel away the rations, throw away the dirty uniforms, and proceed to trade the dress uniforms to the ogyrn unit for a ripper gun (they had said 'autocannon', but the Ogyrn had no idea what that was with an Int roll of 99). The ripper was eventually traded for a one-time use of an open-bed towing vehicle caled "The Towed". All in all, good times. Maybe next time they'll actually get the gear they need!
How about you folks, any fun stories or good trades?
