Aldyn Posted April 10, 2009 Share Posted April 10, 2009 update on the 163d Legion... played a quick evening game the other night vs. yet another Ritterlich force, 2000 pts since we started at like 8:30 pm and had to work the next day anyway, my Terrans crushed the Ritt thru superior tactics (and superior dice rolls) forces: Terran Armor Naginata x2 Scorpion (with ECM/3 upgrade) Ashigaru (with Reactive Armor) Specialist Raptor II Puma Flight Harpy x2 Ritterlich Armor Rhino Tiger Sabertooth Panther Specialist Mastodon Flight Eagle x2 essentially the battle went like this... gotta give play-by-play on the first couple rounds as it was critical to how the game ended up Ritt started things off (of course) drawing his card first, activating his armor section, leaving his Panther back with the Mastodon and popping his electronics while the rest of the section advanced... after burying my card, he activated his Specialist (mastodon) and let loose on my Armor section, which ALL my units I had spread way out during deployment, since I knew he'd shoot first, regardless... anyway, he rolled crappy vs my DV's and no effect my draw, my Harpys focus-fired one of his Eagles down in flames, then I drew again and sent my Armor section around the edge of a low-lying building looking across the area where his Armor was gonna come... this is where my ECM on the Scorpion came in handy, as my section was under full (albeit weak on ECM side this turn) electronics the whole way next draws were his, then my buried card, basicly he shot down my Harpy that had been hit by defensive fire from his doomed Eagle, and I blasted his remaining Eagle with my Raptor's arty... end of Ritterlich Air Force next round, and this was his major tactical error... he again left his Panther back with the Mastodon, and left his attack force uncovered as he moved them out toward me taking out my Harpy (unintentionally playing bait) along the way... and buried my card to fire again with his Mastodon, which again rolled crappy on his damage roll (a recurring theme over the whole fight) that left the rest of the round to me, which I used to abuse the little building I was hiding behind, popping my full Ashigaru electronics (I love those little guys) and swinging both Naginatas around the corner and firing, back one using the front one for cover but still being able to shoot past it, and popping up with my Scorpion. Rhino now at 6 DT after focused fire and arty from the Raptor, stopping his advance in it's tracks, as he now had to stop and repair anyway, the rest of the battle was pretty one sided, his poor armor section having been left out in the cold, was no match for mine, hiding behind the building, with only the Naginatas able to be seen (DV 17 at this point thanks to Mr. Ashigaru) I gunned down the Rhino (even after his repair roll) and wasted his Tiger... then chased his Sabertooth back toward his Mastodon, but it never made it to the Panther's ECM bubble, and then trapped his Mastodon and Panther in a crossfire finished his Mastodon off with a Flamer shot from the Puma... insult to injury! (payback for his Wolverines and their flamers) my only casualties of the game were my Harpys, and one Naginata that he decided had insulted his mother... all in all, it was a good night for the 163d Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
