Turn 1 –

Top – Sprocketgx:

The first thing that the Ranger Force did, was send its motor cycle up my left flank. Then several orders brought the Rosie Link team forward to claim the antenna closest to the rangers, and put Rosie into a nice overwatch spot and her HMG grunt supporting from below. A nomad moderator bravely tried to take her out in ARO, but got burned to a crisp for his efforts. The motorcycle moved up to over the central flag as a camo marker came forward, revealed itself as the Foxtrot FO, claimed the center antenna, and put out another camo marker, before becoming a camo marker again.


Bottom – Jhokalups

The extremely impetuous Morlock decided that he wanted to get a piece of the Ranger motorcycle, and booked it out into the open spot between two shipping containers. He tried to throw smoke to cover this rash advance, but Rosie and her HMG buddy decided that they did not like that plan. After a face-to-face with Rosie and the HMG grunt, the Morlock found himself to be on fire from Rosie’s light rocket launcher. Unfortunately in his haste, the Morlock caught the Reverend Moira in the fire and took her out as well.

Using a command token to claim the irregular order as regular, The Riot Grrl played line of site and distance games with the mine and motorcycle. Eventually taking out the mine and the Foxtrot. The Reverend Healer came up to capture the closest antenna, and the Riot Grrl came around to cover the mid field from the antenna. The Zero Hacker model slid over for reasons…

Turn 2

Top – Sprocketgx

The motorcycle rides forward and decides to have a shootout with the Riot Grrl. After several exchanges the two are left glaring at each other. The airborn ranger drops in to take a shot at the Reverend healer, and gets dropped for his time. Then the Hardcase Frontiersman sneaks around to attempt to get the healer. A discovery attempt is made by the moderator, who fails. And when the Reverend Healer is taken out, the moderator gets him as well.

Bottom – Jhokalups

With four orders left there wasn’t a lot to do. The non-hacking zero repositions itself to lose line of site to the HMG and the Motorcycle and does a surprise shot on Rosie. Several shots later and Rosie is still alive with nothing else to show for it. A coordinated order was used to put the Zero and Moderator into suppressive fire.

Turn 3

Top – Sprocketgx

With speculative fire and a bit of luck the Light Grenade Launcher Grunt takes out the zero that’s visible. And the motorcycle gets the Riot Grrl down.

Bottom – Jhokalups

WIth two orders left, and being down by two points, I spent a lot of time thinking about how I could either win, or tie up the game. It was determined that the Zero Hacker could not get to the middle antenna. It was at this point that I realized that using a ladder did not reveal a camo marker, so the zero moved back over to the ladder and scrambled down. The zero then walked over to the unconscious airborne ranger and performed a Coup-de-Gras, completing my classified objective and tying the game.

Lessons Learned:

  • Take more pictures of what happened in the game. It is hard to remember exactly what happened.
  • The Morlock eating a fire template weapon and taking the Moira with him really hurt. He could have been on the other side of the containers and been fine.
  • Remember LOS and surprise shot, the Zero probably could have taken out Rosie earlier, making the rest of turn 2 and 3 easier.
  • Riot Grrls have Frenzy, Don’t forget that rule
  • Camo markers can use ladders without revealing themselves.
