The vibe is pretty well summed up by the post game.

‘You’ve got three injury rolls so let’s do them in case you ever want to carry on with these guys. So that’s one miss next game, one double 6 dead, that’s unfortunate and… another double 6 dead.’

Game 5:

After The Lads did so well seeing off the Escher without him, Big decided to carry on taking it easy and let second-in-command Meaty Chunks lead a small raid on what rumour held to be a poorly guarded Mercator Storehouse. Rumour was very wrong and The Lads came across both a servitor guard and a motley crew of outcasts, presumably following up on the same rumour.

Frazzles charged forward and attempted to show off the power of his storm welder by aiming it at the servitor. The unstable gun exploded in his hands and knocked the keen prospect out for the count. This pretty much set the tone for the rest of the skirmish. The servitor may not have been a great shot, but it weathered all attacks thrown at it for a while, including surviving charges both from Meaty with his stimm fuelled pulveriser axes, and a simultaneous attack from the Ambot the opposing crew had bought with them for their own muscle. In the end Meaty wore the robot down, but his victory was short lived as the Ambot stepped over the iron corpse and struck him down. After Riblet caught a shot gun blast to the gut while trying to sneak around the flank, it was increasingly clear the remaining Lads were going to be overwhelmed and they beat a swift retreat to lick their wounds.

Following his self inflicted mishap, Frazzles was saved from critical injuries and patched up by The Lads Resurrectionist allies before he required their more specialist services, though he was still knocked out of action a for a while. Meaty suffered a debilitating spinal injury from the raging Ambot, but the trauma seemed to have kickstarted his hyper-healing gene mods and whilst he too is laid up for a while, he feels tougher than he has for weeks and has shaken off the enfeebling injury inflicted by rival Goliaths so early in his career.

Yet another keen young Bully reaches The Lads after striking out from the home forge to try to fight his way to a new life, and while Big welcomes Gizzard to the lads, he gets a slightly uneasy feeling that the greenhorns are starting to outnumber the more experienced fighters. Whilst he watches the juves haze the new recruit with the customary initiation headbutting contest, he considers if maybe he needs to start being a bit more picky next time a wet behind the ears kid shows up wanting to join the gang.
