AAR: WoB hits the golf course.
« on: 12 October 2014, 18:52:28 »
Had a match with the Kell Hounds defending a Lyran General caught out golfing from a WoB force. The Kell Hounds were victorious,  but it was a Pyrrhic victory, as the General was crushed to death by a Deva Comminus.   That said, the WoB forces lost a Seraph Havala, a Preta Dominus, 2 LRM Carriers and 1 SRM Carrier, while the Kell Hounds only lost a Bushwacker and a Centurion. I learned that a Seraph Havalah with a jammed UAC/20 is not very frightening. Photos can be found at:

Pretty cool to actually see this played out!
Were the objectives the same as were discussed? WoB wanted the General alive for intel?

We tried. When it looked like we had lost the match, we crushed the General. We'd agreed that the carrying unit could only walk while carrying the General, and it looked to be that we couldn't safely get him to our edge of the board, we decided to just squish him.

Very neat, but my question is simple:

WHERE DID YOU GET THAT HEX MAT?

I want one.  A LOT.

It's a Hotz mat. Not sure if I can link or not, but if you google Hotz mat, it'll pop up. The thing is, be prepared for a long wait. He takes his time making them. Great quality, but takes forever.

Well...no big loss there.

I'm pretty sure there's a Hotz thread somewhere on these forums for those who are interested.

I went with 1.75" since I use Heroscape terrain for elevation.

That is what I would be using it for as well.  Save me a TON of hexes.  Thanks a lot!

Yeah, that's exactly why I did it as well. I got the idea from Amanharan.

Thanks. I rebased an repainted an old MWDA infantry unit, and cut up a needle to serve as the golf club.
