Nym/Deadman Z Carnage Memorial Wall

In league night last night I flew a variant on Will Barnickle's insane Nym/Deadman Z list (basically an Adv Sens, Genius Bomblet Nym with four Z95 Pirates with Dead Man's Switch). But it was league night at the Portland Game Store, and we're doing 120 point games this month (yay for non 100/6 format, amirite?), so I tacked on a N'Dru with Cruise Missiles. I got in two great games; the first was against Andy's four Rookies and a U-Wing. 

The scummy idea behind this list is for Nym to self bomb the pirates, creating a chain reaction that destroys everything in its path. 

Here's the moment before the crisis:



And then the crisis itself: Nym manages to get the bomb on all but two of all the ships on the board! The dream!


Andy and I used the result dice and damage cards to indicate the carnage from the first round of bombing:


And then the dream, in the following round the Z's blocked the rookies, Nym bombed them and triggered a deadman's chain reaction that killed three of the bandits, two of the rookies, and the U-Wing! 6 ships destroyed!


An awesome example of the sort of crazy stuff you can pull of in this game!

Worst. Squad leader. Ever.

Zapp Brannigan: What troubles you, Leela? Whatever it is, I'm willing to send wave after wave of my own men to aid you. Isn't that right, men?

Rogue voice: You suck!

The S&V getaway driver says: "That is the dream. The dream is real. We need a memorial wall for all the dead men sacrifices."
