Enter the Spugs - A 5150: Star Army Bat Rep

On Gaea Prime reports are coming in that the Planetary Defense Forces on Entoich V (1) have been attacked by Spug raiders. Star Army has placed their forces on alert and monitor Intel on a daily basis.

(1) Entoich V is a small planet under Gaea Prime protection in the 5th Ring. It has a desolate ash-like landscape with rivers of lava running over it.


Day One

The 1st squad of 3rd Platoon, "A" Company is charged with a recon patrol up the Mirsa to an abandoned settlement. Word has it that the Spugs are heading this way.

Campaign Morale

Spugs 4

Spugs are pretty fixed in purpose.

This is a consistent problem with all Planetary Defense Forces, they don't have much stomach for a fight.


·         Your objective is to recon the table.
·         To be successful you or one of your squad leaders or assistant squad leaders must spend one turn of activation within 6" of the edge of the table in sections 1, 2, and 3. Once you have accomplished this you must report back by exiting the table from the edge that you entered.


·         You will patrol with a squad.

Got Spugs?


  1. Cool BatRep! I've got to get some Spugs!

    Bad outing for the home team huh? I'm really hesitant to ask this, but I must. Does anything special* happen to the captured soldiers? I remember Spugs from original 5150, nasty they were.

    * by "special" - I mean horribly gruesome and disturbing.


  2. That would be the feeder tube to the skull and...well, think slurpee.
