[Alpha Strike] Battle for the thermal station
« on: 11 May 2019, 06:31:53 »
A few picture of our first game BT game last night. It was great fun. 4 mechs against 4. We had to take control of a thermal station.

At mid game it looked like I would loose badly but I was able to maneuver and score critical hits destroying 3 enemy mechs. It was down to my Wolverine size 2 vs the enemy Awesome size 4. Out was outsized and outgunned but managed to survive 3 others turns before loosing my Wolverine and loosing the game.

Enemy Lance


My lance


TURN 2 • The enemy approaches for the North (image top) while I advance from the South (bottom)


Shadow Hawk kills my Locust


My Wolverine finishes the Shadow Hawk


My Wolverine destroys the enemy Commando


The enemy Awesome destroys my Wolverine • End Game

Thank you. We used the AS quick start rules pdf. Next time we will use the detailed rules of the 2018 armored combat box.

Yes he was great. He even destroyed all the armor boxes of the Awesome and almost (failed roll) scored critical hits.
