Rogue Milkshake

Some rules for deploying Weaponised Dairy Based Beverages in Warhammer 40,000: Rogue Trader.

Milkshake 40K

Milkshake costs 5PV. I don't know if that Milkshake is worth 5PV, but it's pretty good.

Some Milkshake orientated scenarios you might like to consider include:

  • The 'delivery' of a Milkshake to a corrupt planetary governor attempting a meta-political coup. 
  • Dealing with the fall-out of a Milkshake used in hasty self-defence against an Ogryn Leader.
  • A Milkshake in a yard as a mission objective for all the Ork Boyz to capture. 

Once an Imperial Commander has developed a taste for Jadeberry flavoured Grox milk, what next? There is always the danger of Milkshake escalation to consider. Perhaps Ice Cream Cones could be the next step up in the Dairy Arms Race. For the lactose intolerant, maybe other snack and fast food based weapons could be developed - unexpectedly popping an empty inflated bag of potato crisps as a sonic weapon that causes Panic, or opening very shaken up cans of fizzy pop. In the grim dark future there is only the limit of your imagination.

Although I hadn't really intended to do anything with it, Jason of Rogue Heresy  and Colin of The Leadpile were both enthused about the Milkshake 40k concept and requested a T-Shirt based on the Rogue Trader style artwork, so here it is!
