300/ITS 11 – Countermeasures

This week I had a rematch with SprocketGX from last week! Instead of playing with Caladonians, Sprocket decided to bring the Ariadna Ranger Force. I haven’t tried Countermeasures and wanted to try out the new mission. After selecting our table and lists we rolled our WIP.

Our table for the week was a cool one. There were three pretty big lanes down the middle that were broken up enough with some scatter to make them not just murder alleys. After reviewing my options, I chose the side on top of the below picture. I felt that having more options to deploy in elevated cover and total cover would be more advantageous than the single more elevated piece of terrain where the standard deployment zone didn’t quite touch the wall.

We revealed our first classifieds to be:

  • HVT: Identity Check
  • HVT: Inoculation
  • HVT: Retro Engineering

That done Sprocket started to deploy.

Deployment:

Deploying first Sprocket sets up his HVTs across the midline. After that, Sprocket starts placing the infiltrating grunts, and makes three of the four infiltration rolls. A dozer gets tucked into a nice spot on the left side. Covered by the failed Grunt. A Grunt Core covered the central high rock formation, with two snipers up top, the Minuteman Lt, a plain Grunt and the Medic where hiding below in the cave. Rosie, a Marauder and the Unknown Ranger were in a haris on the right side, hiding behind a small office portable. There was a 112 that was covering the right side. A Devil Dog and Antipode were the reserve model, and went in on the left side.

Sprocket made his 112 his data tracker.

My HVTs were deployed as mirrors of where Sprocket had his. I then set up carefully around the Grunt Infiltrators, I didn’t want anyone to easily be walked and flamed. I had the Clockmaker hiding on the opposite side of a Grunt. The puppet master was prone on the roof blocking the ladder. I had a Warcor standing on my middle roof, out of sight from one of the two snipers. The interventor and Securitate HMG were prone on that same roof on different corners. I had the Grenzer and Securitate Medic on the ground behind that building, making sure to keep the Grenzer out of sight from the Grunt Sniper and not able to be easily walked and flamed by a Grunt. My Securitate Feuerbach was on top of a nearby roof with Perseus hiding behind it. Mary and the Daktari hid behind a rock on my right. I bring in a Lunokhod and it’s Koalas to cover the middle building. I then make my Grenzer my data tracker.

Top of 1: SprocketGx USARF

Discard Identity Check, replaced by Sabotage

After Sabotage comes up we each pick our building. I then choose to dock orders from the group with the Devil Dog. Sprocket sends his Devil Dog team forward, I attempt to have the Warcor Flashpulse the Antipode, several times, but am unable to get it done. Once the Devil Dog makes it forward, Mary attempts to hit it with a zapper, and succeeds, with the Devil Dog choosing to take a wound. Both the Daktari and Mary survive the chain rifle, with the Daktari backing up. Unfortunately the Daktari backed up to be seen by the nearby grunt, who burns her down. The middle Grunt tries to get forward to take down my Grenzer. But doesn’t have the distance on the first order, as he walks in he gets taken out by the Koalas as he burns up my warcor.

Out of orders in group 2, Sprocket moves on to group 1. He starts by bringing his haris forward to take out the silo on my side, completing Sabotage. The haris then comes forward to try and take out my core. Unfortunately for the Unknown Ranger, the Grenzer doesn’t care about his cover nor mimetism (MSV1 is useful from time to time) and takes him down. The Marauder comes forward to try and burn out Perseus. Perseus takes down the Marauder at the cost of his ODD. Out of orders, Sprocket ends his turn.

Bottom of 1: Jhokalups Tunguska

Draw Telemetry to replace the completed classified.

Discard Inoculation, replaced by Capture.

I start off by using my Interventors lieutenant order to idle, Sprocket almost doesn’t have Rosie declare reset. I successfully manage to get Spotlight onto her, and complete Telemetry. I then have my Lunokhod come forward to take out Rosie. After that my Securitate link activates and the HMG takes out the Grunt on the roof to my right while exchanging fire with the sniper. I then take out the Grunt Sniper I can see with the HMG and proceed to use a good portion of the rest of my turn to kill off the Devil Dog and the other Grunt. I attempt to drop Spector in to take out the Dozer and get an easy capture, completely forgetting about the link team. Cursing myself I dodge Spector into cover and then end my turn.

Top of 2: SprocketGx USARF

Draw Experimental Drug to replace the completed classified.

Discard Capture, replaced by Nanoespionage.

Sprocket spends an order to have the Minuteman take out Spector. That link team then maneuvers to get the paramedic up top, while the Minuteman and my Feuerbach exchange shots. Shots keep bouncing off, and eventually the minuteman falls back into total cover. The paramedic then becomes the angel of mercy and takes out the unconscious grunt sniper. I believe that this turn in a final face to face, my Feuerbach takes out the Minuteman lieutenant. After walking the Foxtrot forward a bit, Sprocket ends his turn feeling a bit frustrated with how it went.

Bottom of 2: Jhokalups Tunguska

Discard Nanoespionage, replaced by Kidnapping

I move the Lunokhod and my undeployed meteor zond.use my lieutenant order to put up Assisted Landing. Then successfully drop my Meteor Zond in on the other side of the Foxtrot Camo Marker. I have the Meteor use sensor to reveal the Foxtrot. I then put Marksmanship up on the Zond and proceed to take out the Foxtrot. I then walk a little haris of Perseus, the Paramedic and the Grenzer forward to have the Grenzer fail once at synchronizing the middle HVT before successfully grabbing it to complete Kidnapping. Feeling satisfied I end my turn.

Top of 3: SprocketGx USARF

Draw Test Run to replace the completed classified.

Sprocket has one chance to tie up the game. He has a grunt jump up to fall unconscious. Then brings the 112 over to try and heal him up to complete Experimental Drug. Unfortunately it seems that all of Sprockets medical staff went to the PanOceania school of medicine, and once again acts as an angel of mercy, killing the Grunt. Without orders and without options, he ends his turn.

Bottom of 3: Jhokalups Tunguska

Having already completed more classifieds, and one with my data tracker, I end my turn. Which makes it a:

Final Score: 8 – 1 Tunguska Total Victory

Lessons Learned:

Grunts are hard to play around, I am glad I was deploying second so I could see where all the grunt infiltrators landed and respond accordingly. The Infiltrators did influence my deployment, and I can see how a player could use that influence to set up a strong first strike. One weakness I saw in this list is my deployment control. Only the Grenzer can deploy out of zone, and I only had one piece that brought passive area control (the Lunokhod). I feel fortunate that group two had most of the orders spent on the devil dog. The two grunts on the ground could have really messed up my link team if they had tried.

I am extremely disappointed in myself for the complete waste of Raul Spector. I completely spaced that there was a link team looking at right were I dropped him in. So Spector basically walked in and died. What is really disappointing is that if I had walked Spector in on the other side of the board, I could have taken out the Data Tracker, and then sliced through the fireteam from the other side. Lesson learned. Walk around to the other side of the board before doing any aerial deployment.

An interesting anecdote, I recently replaced my dice, which seems silly. The new dice seem to be much more fair, and as a result, my perceived amount of criticals has gone up from the last few games. I am interested to see if this is just confirmation bias or what. If I have another game with really hot dice. I may start recording the results of all my die rolls, just to see.

Until next time.

300/ITS 11 – Firefight

After taking last week off to let some others get games in, I was ready to play again this week. My opponent for the night was Sprocketgx, whom I have played (and lost to) on many occasions. This would be our first game of CHA against Tunguska, and I was looking forward to it. By random draw, our mission for the week was Firefight. After getting the table set up and armies unpacked, we rolled WIP and got into it.

Our table had a nice mix of natural features and buildings. I could see this being an industrial complex that is building up in a heavily forested area. The catwalk down the middle set up some nice line of sight breaks from the sniper levels and the ground. I chose the side with the taller buildings, since this was Firefight, I wanted my lieutenant to be as difficult to access as possible.

Deployment:

Sprocket brought 8 of the 45th Highlander Galwegians to the table, these were spaced fairly evenly across the front line. McMurrough, Wallace and a Volunteer link team supported his left side. He also had a Cataran Sniper covering that side as well. The right was more open and covered only by a Motorized 112. Across the middle was a Scots Guard, S.A.S. and Uxia from his right to left, each near one of the Panoplies.

I set my Hollow Men link on my left side, with a Combi and the Missile Launcher up high, and the Spitfire watching the forward approach down low. The Stempler and other Hollow Man Combi were tucked out of the way on my right. I had my Interventor LT hidden prone on top of the building on my right, being guarded by a Heckler Jammer. I had my Zondnautica deployed dismounted with the Zondmate forward on my right side, and then deployed Persues prone on the tall building. As we got started I declared Persues my data tracker. The Grey was the datatracker for SprocketGx.

Top of 1: Sprocketgx CHA

To start things off, the Highlanders all start running forward. Between my Missile Launcher Hollow Man, Spitfire, and the Stempler all take out a few of the Galwegians. Some are not available to shoot, one gets it’s smoke off and another goes dogged. After getting a smoke screen setup McMurrough comes over and snags a Multi Sniper Rifle out of the Panoplies.

After that he started to move his Volunteer link, unfortunately the Grey passed in front of my Hollow Man Spitfire and went down to a hail of bullets. After losing the Grey, a Galwegian in Dogged comes forward, pulls a motorcycle out of the Panoplies.

Before coming around the corner to take out my Zondnautica. A camo grey comes forward and does a wound to my missile launcher Hollow Man, before going down while trying the spitfire. That done he ends his turns and pulls of all the Dogged Galwegians off the table.

Bottom of 1: Jhokalups Tunguska

On this turn, I know I want to take out the 112 to keep the medic from getting up and maybe take out all the Volunteers. I start by having Perseus stand up and walk to the edge of the building. With no AROs declared he jumps off the back of the building, and spends a couple orders getting up next to a building where I can have him take a shot at one of the remaining Galwegians. The Galwegian successfully smokes and then I use that smoke screen to walk Raul Spector in. Spector walks over and shotguns down the 112 in the back before setting up a mine. Out of orders I end my turn.

Top of 2: Sprocketgx CHA

The last couple of the Galwegians come forward. Both coming after Perseus. The first one I dodge away from, I am concerned about the berserk after a chain rifles just taking out my Myrmidon. The other one Perseus is able to gun down. After a couple turns of dodging, the Galwegian on my left by Perseus gets hit with a Spitfire, before going down to Perseus’s blade. After losing his models on that side to Perseus, Sprocket starts sending some volunteers after Spector. He loses a couple, but is eventually able to take Spector down. An SAS comes forward and takes something out of the Panoplies. After that McMurrough comes up to Coup de Gras my Zondnautica and Zondbot. While doing that my heckler jams McMurrough successfully. As a final act, the Cataran reveals and takes a shot at my Hollow Man link leader. Unfortunately the Cataran gets Crit off the table.

Out of orders, Sprocket ends his turn.

Bottom of 2: Jhokalups Tunguska

With my Hollow Men more free to act, I spend some orders repositioning to take down the SAS, then kill the unconscious Scots Guard. I then spend a few orders exchanging fire with McMurrough before he falls prone. Out of options I end my turn.

Top of 3: Sprocketgx CHA

McMurrough being prone has to stand and walk towards the ladder with the Heckler up top. He goes down to a combination of Missile Launcher, Spitfire and Combi shots. Sprocket then forms a new core of Volunteers and Wallace and then advance up to open a Panoplie. Unfortunately Wallace is visible to the Missile Launcher and goes down, taking out Uxia as well. Out of orders and units, Sprocket ends turn.

Bottom of 3: Jhokalups Tunguska

Looking at the board, I have more specialist kills, lieutenant kills, have killed more army points and completed a classified and killed a data tracker. I end my turn without spending an order which makes it a:

Final Score: 8 – 2 Tunguska Total Victory

Lessons Learned:

This is a game that I felt like everything went my way. There were a couple of exchanges where the odds didn’t look great, but a lucky critical hit turned the game my way.

Perseus is definitely one of my favorite units in Tunguska. Lately he has been performing well above what I need him to do. In this game he took out two Galwegians, completed a classified and set up successfully for Spector to come in and tear up the back line. The real MVPs are the Hollow Men link team. Their AROs were wicked this game. They frustrated Sprocekt at every turn. I look forward to learning more about how Tunguska functions, I think I am starting to get a knack for it.

Until next time.

300 / ITS X – Hunting Party
Finally able to play a game again, it feels like it has been too long. This last week I once again faced off against Sprocketgx, who has been one of my more challenging opponents. This week we tried hunting party, in preparation for an ITS in January. I was trying out Cassandra Kusanagi and Bran Do Castro for the first time. After getting our terrain on the table we rolled off.

Winning the roll, I took a look at the table, and deciding that I liked both sides fairly evenly, that I would like to set the pace for the first engagement, and elected to go first.

Deployment:
Deploying this list was interesting, there are only seven models that are not in a marker state. I had my Reverend haris off on my right surrounding a nice sniper tower. The tower had my moderator lying prone, and I spread my Morlock off on my left flank, rolling Armor, Physique, and BTS with their meta chemistry. My prowlers went on either side of the board, towards the middle. The Zero hacker was in the middle near my HVT. The minelayer Zero placed it’s mine forward of itself in cover, whole being prone in cover further back. The FO Zero was up on a building near the antenna on my right. I held Bran in reserve, hoping to do some damage with him.

CHA Deployment.jpg
Sprocket brought a lot of Camo markers as well. Wallace was prone up on a roof. A volunteer link was off to the right on his side. The Inferior Infiltrating Volunteer failed it’s roll and walked on near the other volunteers. Uxia successfully deployed near my Reverend haris.

CHA Deployment

Top of 1: Bakunin
One of our Warcors has been writing about mental fatigue and how a checklist can help reduce mental strain and improve results, soto follow that theme I had the following list.

  1. Keep Kusanagi alive and un-hunted.
  2. Capture antennas and make it difficult for Sprocket to recapture.
  3. Use Bran to disrupt things in the back.

To start things off, the Morlocks went on a rampage, one advancing and throwing out a smoke cloud, then another double moved, I misjudged the distance and angles and that poor Morlock got plastered by a volunteer with a rifle. The final Morlock moved up just behind the others limp body. In retaliation I moved my left most Prowler forward along the crates, as it cleared them it was able to take a shot on the volunteers, taking the link down from 5 to 4. Another order takes down the infiltrating volunteer that wasn’t able to infiltrate. And then finally the Prowler circles around the boxes to lure out an SAS and then blasts it off the table.
The camo marker close to my Lieutenant was concerning. The healer volunteered to take care of the issue, wandering over to bait out ARO’s from the marker. The marker revealed itself to be Uxia, and after a few exchanges Uxia was unconscious. Next up my Zero FO camo marker crawled towards the antenna and dropped a mine marker (rules flub, cannot drop mines with a camo marker in the trigger area), then walked over to the antenna. An SAS revealed itself, tanked the mine and shots from the Zero. Another attempt by the Zero to deal with the SAS got the Zero frozen. Some orders got Kusanagi into cover, the healer covering a possible approach from McMurrough. Final orders re-camouflaged the Prowler and then a coordinated order moved my markers forward.

Bottom of 1: CHA
Sprocket had a bit of a puzzle on his hands. I have some camo markers up in aggressive spots and doing too much with the volunteer link would risk the wrath of Bran. To start off, the Highlanders took their Impetuous moves towards Bran. Then McMurrough took his towards my Zero up top. After winning a smoke face to face with the Reverend Healer, McMurrough proceeds to start creeping up in the smoke, hoping to take out Kusanagi and the link. McMurrough face tanks the mine bluff. Unfortunately on his next walk he gets an adhesive launcher to the face and gets stuck in glue. Next a Scot wielding a missile launcher popped out of camo and took shots at my Reverend healer. Fortunately she dodged well out of site.
The last group to activate was the fourman link, which was down to four orders. One member starting climbing up a ladder toward Bran, while the others advanced to cover the objective marker. Bran lucked out and the volunteer that made it up failed it’s first discover roll. That left the volunteers without much else to do and so Sprocket passed turn.

Top of 2: Bakunin
Going back to my checklist, so far I haven’t accomplished much on it. I need to capture antennas still. I have eliminated but not hunted down a couple specialists, and have revealed where others are. With my impetuous orders I bring my two remaining Morlocks up. The first climbs a ladder towards the volunteers, while attempting to chain rifle one down, it dodges. The other starts the long climb towards the ML Scot. The leftmost Morlock decides it is time to sacrifice itself to free Bran up. It advances and takes the volunteer standing by Bran out, whole getting gunned down itself. I use Bran to then isolate the volunteer paramedic, and start to play Spider-Man, hiding on the sides of the walls to block line of sight. My other Morlock climbs up the ladder and chain rifles the Scot down. At one point, Bran got Immobilized, so I spent a good chunk (3-4) orders trying to reset him. When he did he went back into Camo. My FO zero stunned the SAS that was by him. And my hacker Zero came forward and secured the left antenna. Also while using it for cover.

Bottom of 2: CHA
With the volunteers down to three members, Sprocket moves the two over to group 1, to fill out orders. Bran, a Highlander, and the volunteers all have a Merry game of tag that ends with a dead Highlander, dead Prowler, and Bran dancing in the sides of a building. Unable to secure any of my specialists the turn is passed.

Third turn, I have captured one antenna, and between Bran, my Zero and isolating the paramedic, there isn’t much to fear about losing control of it. I therefore forces on getting the second antenna, protecting Bran, and setting up a good defense block.
The FO zero successfully knocks out the SAS next to him and then captures the right hand antenna. I spend a few orders trying to get Bran into a good spot to isolate the LT, and then use a coordinated order to move my camo marker spitfire prowler up. With that done I pass turn.

Bottom of 3: CHA
Looking at points, Sprocket needs to hunt down more specialists than me to tie. So that’s what he sets out to do. Fortunately Bran dodges around the building, but my Zero hacker gets glued.
Next up Wallace decides to take a stab at binding Bran, when he stands up to walk the Prowler sends a glue ball omat Wallace, which he easily avoided with a smoke screen. Unfortunately when walking over with the last two orders to take Bran out, Wallace gets tagged by the Prowlers adhesive launcher. Which ends the game. With two antennas, a tie on specialists, no classifieds and one stuck Lieutenant, the Bakunin force takes home victory.

Final Score: 6 – 0 Bakunin Total Victory

Lessons Learned:

  • The checklist plan is actually very helpful. Having a list to fall back on in times of doubt really helped this game. Thanks WiseKensai!
  • Mines cannot be dropped with a camo marker in their trigger area, write it down and remember it.
  • I have found nothing in the rules saying that a model that is unconscious cannot also be isolated or immobilized. This could be helpful information for future Hunting Party missions.
  • Bran Do Castro was an awesomely disruptive piece. He tied up a whole link team with his infiltrating and distracted my opponent from pushing forward. I just wish I had been able to do super jumping with him.
  • I really like the Kusanagi haris supported by all the camo markers. Though another list may have done a bit better in Hunting Party.

150 Recon+ – Exfiltrate

This week I had the pleasure of facing off against our local Warcor, TheDiceAbide. Since I was so late to game night we decided for Recon+ instead of ITS practice. A roll on the Recon+ table selected Exfiltrate. Which I have been told it’s a combination of Unmasking and Rescue. With some new buildings I have been working on setup we rolled Wip.

Deployment:

TheDiceAbide chose table sides. He told me his choice was motivated by not wanting to move his stuff to the other side of the table.

Deploying I hid my Riot Grrl Core with Emily behind a building on my right, the Alguacil LT joined them. My Irmandinho was on the left lying down behind some cover. The CSU was more central with the Warcor. I held my bandit in reserve. I put my civilians in places I felt would be easy to get them back to my side.

FRRM deployed his link centered around a little forest thing, except for the heavy rocket launcher, which was staring down the longest fire lane. His metros were hiding in cover and total cover. The last thing I saw deployed was a Warcor.

I deployed my Bandit reserve just outside the exclusion zone. The FRRM reserve was a camo marker (Bruant Lt) in the forest.

Top of 1 – StarCo

To start things off my Irmandinho used his impetuous order to start going through the building to my left. He we discussed how to rule the buildings and used a “not through two” rule for line of sight through the doors. Next up I had five orders to get stuff done with. I used one to bring the Em+RG link into the building on my right. Using interior features to cover their approach to the firelane door. After looking through some doors we agreed on the sequence of models that would get sight on the door corner. Then I used an order an carefully placed the Spitfire Riot Grrl to see the Briscard Medic and gun it down. Next the RG-Spitfire took down the warcor. I realized that the Metro was prone behind, and the next model to become visible was the Briscard Heavy Rocket Launcher. I remember my mistake from my first game, and decide to move Emily and the Specialist Riot Grrl back a bit before taking on the HRL. I then get a clever idea to try and use my CSU to tag the HRL from near a civilian to negate blast mode. Two orders (one of which was a converted irregular) and one bad estimation of distance later… and my CSU is a pile of ash. At this point I pass turn. Electing not to move the Bandit

Bottom of 1 – FRRM

Starting off with a diminished link and a loss of orders TDA elected to try and force some hard ARO choices. Using a coordinated order (breaking the link) he brought the Briscards, a metro and a camo marker up. I elect to shoot the Briscard, winning the face to face and knocking it out. Another coordinated order brings the HRL and camo marker up to shoot at my Riot Grrl. This time I shoot at the HRL, taking a standard roll from Bruant. The HRL goes down and the Riot Grrl Suffers a wound. TDA elects to drop the Para-Commando behind my link. It lands right in front of my Alguacil, who takes it down with his Combi Rifle. Bruant makes one more attempt at the Riot Grrl, and goes down in a hail of Bullets. The Metro makes a speculative fire with a Light Grenade Launcher, but it fails to place.

With the two weakest models of his list left, we decided to call the game at the end of his turn.

Swapping my classified for Secure the HVT gets me some points.

Final Score: 2 – 0 StarCo Victory

Lessons Learned:

  • I continue to struggle to get the bandit to do work for me. This game I didn’t spend a single order on it. I could have used it’s irregular to get closer to one of my Civilians.
  • I placed my civilians poorly for Exfiltrate. Looking at the deployment pictures. I should have put them all in a row in the building on my left. They would have been out of line of fire from the back field and I would have had easy access to get them out safely.
  • The Riot Grrl Spitfire is really strong in Recon+, in StarCo being able to form a 3 person core makes her truly dominating.
  • I killed my opponent too well. Between my turn and his I cleared all the meaningful pieces off the table. In a tournament setting this would have left me with one more turn to actually try and secure some objectives. Which is a little difficult with only 5 regular orders.
  • If a game is to be recorded for a tournament or league, you should play out the turns. Objective Points are important. More important than the body count that a Riot Grrl can rack up.

First Deploy – StarCo

For my deployment there was a little bit of hiccup. I tried putting the Doc+Grrls link out and ready to go to either my left objective or the center. I was advised this was a bad idea, so they lined up along a nice wall with the missle launcher (ML) profile sticking out. Tinbot Profile was the link leader. Uhahu sat prone on top of a wall to provide some white noise support. The brigada was hidden out of the way and my bandit camo marker was in cover near the left object. My reserve Hawwa hacker went to my right objective.

USARF had the Marauder link way up the field, forward deployment level 2 and a 12 inch deployment zone is scary. His two MSV profiles, the Sniper and heavy rocket launcher were set out to ARO. Blackjack tool a prime sniper spot on the opposite corner of the deployment zone. The devil dog hid behind the Blackjack’s building. Rosie got eyes on the right hand objective and the unknown ranger found an interesting building to look at.

Top of 1 – StarCo

I had a few goals this turn, I wanted to clear the overwatch snipers, take out what specialists I could and maybe snag some boxes. Project one was the Blackjack, I had my ML Grrl become the link leader, pop up and take two shots at the blackjack. One shit went through, and the blackjack took a wound and then went prone. Project two was the HRL Marauder and his Sniper buddy. I had the Grrls go again, using Spitfire as my link leader, she poked out just enough to get eyes on the HRL profile and took a shot, 5 successes, all canceled by the Marauder. The Grrl passed her armor check. I tried again, 4 successes this time, all canceled by the Marauder, this time the Grrl turns into an ash pile… I need to find a way to clear the sniper to have my bandit get her box… I decide instead to have Hawwa sneak around his tech coffin and take a shot at Rosie. It’s a nice shot, but rosie makes her saves and elects to keep eyes on the Hawwa.

My next thought was, ok Spector time, what can we have you do? I spent a lot of time looking at where to put him, eventually deciding on the back board edge of the USARF deployment zone. Uhahu hacked his deployment systems to help the landing and he stuck it. Spector then walked the narrow line to blast the Unknown Ranger off the table.

With that I passed turn.

Bottom of 1 – USARF

The USARF commander had a few goals this turn, tie up Spector and get the supply boxes. The devil dog won the smoke roll against Spector and basically nullified him. Rosie then gunned down my Hawwa. The link team moved up to attempt to grab the box, I had my bandit break cover and shoot at the sniper. The paramedic laid a flamethrower on the bandit. The sniper lived while my bandit went down in flames. Without any LOF the Marauder Paramedic snagged a supply box. Van Zant dropped in to try and get the drop on the riot Grrls, they survived the attempt. USARF passed turn.

At this point it was very late so we called the game. I turn into a pumpkin for three says if I stay out too late.

Based on having a box, more boxes, me having no boxes, and secure the HVT…

Final Score: 7 – 0 USARF Victory

Lessons Learned:

  • Sometimes dice just don’t go your way. I thought it was a good plan shooting at the HRL Marauder with my Spitfire, 5 dice needing 16s vs 2 needing 15s. The dice didn’t want it.
  • AD troops are hard to use. This was my first time trying Raoul Spector, it almost felt like he could do too much. And I felt I didn’t use him effectively.
  • I misused my Bandit and the Hawwa. I could have grabbed the boxes with them and used Uhahu’s white noise to cover their retreat.
  • I should trust my instincts, I had a choice of ARO against the paramedic or the Sniper. Had I hit the paramedic it could have broken the link and then deny specialists to USARF. With the unknown ranger down, taking out the paramedic would have left the USARF with Rosie as a specialist and no good way to open a box without taking fire.
  • I need to remember my link team bonuses, my Riot Grrl that dodged against Van Zant could have shot back at him thanks to Sixth Sense level 2. Two ML shots against Van Zant might have taken him out.
  • Medium infantry with FD level 1 are scary in limited insertion. USARF had a heavy rocket launcher 4 inches from the midline. And my plan for dealing with him was problematic.
  • Riot Grrls have stun grenades, I might have been able to Speculative fire one into the HRL.
  • The specialist Riot Grrl was carrying a blitzen. I don’t remember the exact distance they were apart, but the Blitzen into Blackjack would probably have been a similar modifier to the ML, and left the blackjack on a roof and not providing orders.
  • The bigger table is different from from the Recon+ table.

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.

PAGE_BREAK: PageBreak

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.
