Race to the Prize

Lone Star leads Duggan and an SSR team into the underground temple complex.

Lehmann is inside undertaking some horrible ritual (with a captured Marine) to call forth otherworldly power from the Black Sun, but he quickly forgets about that once the bullets start flying.

Lehmann's tribesmen make their way towards the entrances to intercept the invaders
There's not much room in the dusty corridors, but there is enough light, for now at least
Duggan, takes position at the end of a long passageway covering it with his improbably large machine gun
He quickly attracts a lot of attention, taking a serious wound from the fusilade!
The two marines back him up, returning fire to some effect
Reinforcements rush down the other stairwell and join forces with the others, making it difficult at best for the SSR to force the way to Lehmann
Azzan takes up a position against the fearsome Major Texas (aka Lone Star) and despite his shield and powerful physique, the hero succumbs to dozens of musket shots 
More reinforcements arrive and now the tribesmen seek to force the passageway
But the injured Duggan (now only able to carry a pistol) finds a secret way around the well-defended corners. A group of Lehmann's protectors race back around to the rear of the temple complex to prevent an attack on their beloved leader
But they have been tricked! Duggan rushes back the way he came, losing them in the secret tunnel. He races around the corner to confront the amazed Lehmann, and sends his giant fist through the rogue Nazi scientist's face! 

This was an amazing game - everyone was sure that the SSR had failed until the last-turn bait and switch occured! Set up beautifully for the finale...

Gone Hunting

Both the Nazis and SSR have tracked Lehmann to this locality, but his exact whereabouts are still unknown. Both groups have send scouting parties and it’s almost inevitable that they make contact with each other at some stage.

Some of Lehmann’s loyal tribesmen look on from their village and seek to roll up the remains.

SSR approach from behind the pilings on the left, while the Nazis advance through the rock columns on the right
Mounir races from the village to intercept the Nazis
Blazkowicz and his Marines come over the ridge and open fire on Ali's men behind the battlements - wiping out the entire group
McPherson and Arkley take point on the rooftop and Blazkowicz and Weaver stay below
The Nazis are cautious advancing, Bilal peers around the corner and spied Wasim on the rocky outcrop ahead. Wasim opens up and the German's backup is gunned down
Mounir returns to the village and takes aim at the Marines across the way, in the heavy exchange of fire both Marines are killed
Avoiding Wasim's shotgun, Bilal leads his remaining men in to overwhelm and capture the tribal leader
Blazkowicz and Weaver rush Mounir on the opposite rooftop and take him prisoner. Blazkowicz starts firing at the Nazis beyond as they try to escape with their captive.
Blazkowicz races across, avoiding incoming fire and then shooting Niemann and the prisoner. Having ensure that the Nazis won't be able to find Lehmann before them, he returns to the village
However, Mounir escaped his bonds in the meantime and leapt to the ground. He escapes into the desert avoiding Weavers attempts to catch him!
Will Blazkowicz and the SSR be able to track down Lehmann without a prisoner? Will the Nazis recover?

Centre of the World!

Bill Blazkowicz succeeded in defeating the Nazi attempt to recover the Black Sun, but Dr. Lehmann escaped into the Libyan desert despite the SSR’s best efforts.

With war erupting in Europe, both sides have renewed their efforts to find Lehmann and use his occult knowledge to further their plans. But in the depths of the desert, Lehmann is developing a device to harness the otherworldly power of the Black Sun while this newfound sway has prompted neighbouring tribes to gather round him.

SSR is sending some of their greatest agents after Lehmann, including Lone Star and Agent Duggan, but the Nazis have powerful allies of their own…

Play out the SSR’s struggle with the Nazis to take control of Lehmann’s centre of occult power!

I'll be running this three-part campaign at Leprecon this weekend (who have a wonderful Mythos theme this year...)
