Sample Warband Creation

As TNT progresses behind the scenes, I thought it might be a bit of fun to talk about warband creation.  Starting warbands cost 400 points in Barter Scrip or BS for short.  For this exercise I am going to be using the roster for the Peacekeepers.  Peacekeepers are mercenary organizations that enforce wasteland justice, keep the roads clear for trade, or force their own petty agendas.

It’s been a while since I felt it was necessary to do a full dispatch, but I felt this bit of news was important.  It’s been a long time coming; the Wasteland Companion is almost here!
