Hi all.  Well work threw a monkey in the wrench, and I now have to work on the 24th.

How does moving the date to the 31st sound?

Excellent.  July 31 at Game Empire.  As before, I will be there at 10 when they open to grab a table.

Scenario will be a breakthrough on a dense city map.  Marik forces will be trying to get though to reach their target.  The Lyran forces will be deployed throughout the city in an effort to stop them.

Force info will be coming.

Howdy all.  Here's what we're working with for the next game and what you need to bring.

Year: 3048
Tech Level: Intro, Standard, and Advanced.  No Experimental tech.
Factions: Free World's League vs Lyran Commonwealth (technically FedCom at this point)
Scenario: FWL units on a breakthrough against the Lyran forces
Map Type: City
Force Size: 600 PV for each
Minimum Skill Allowed: 2

At this time, we have four committed players, counting myself.  My plan was to run the Lyran forces, and 2nd Dragoon wants to play them as well.  Baiju, I have a another player who will play on the FWL side if you'd be willing to join and balance the sides out.

For now guys, build up a lance that you would like to run that fits the bill. Aim for around 200 PV.  One note, you may not have more than two of the same unit, and if so, they must be different variants (yeah, I borrowed that from WolfNet). Once those are in we'll go from there.

Cheers all!  :thumbsup:

I have no objections playing FWL. Once I have my list is posted and approved; I will paint some forces (most likely Marik Militia).

Nice.  Passed that along to the other FWL player.  He's not on the forums, so once he sends me his list I'll send it to you.

To everyone that either came out to play, or just to watch and chat, thank you.  It was a great day and a really fun game.  Hope everyone enjoyed themselves.  Big thanks to 2nd Dragoon for bringing a good chunk of the city terrain and the dropship.  Nice touch.  :thumbsup:

Work is going to be a little nuts next month, so I will keep you all posted for the next date.

Thanks again all.  Some pics from today down below.

Cheers,
Valkerie

Howdy all.  As I expected, this month is being difficult for me.  Between work and other commitments, I don't have any Saturdays free for the rest of the month.  I could possibly do an evening game on Sunday, August 22.  I'm usually out of work by 5:15.  Otherwise, my next open Saturdays are September 4 and 11.

Apologies for my difficult schedule.  :-\

What ever works, I am sure my dice rolling will work  on the last turn of the game in Sept  as they would in Aug.

Unfortunately I cannot make it for the 22nd. I am not sure about September for my schedule may change with business hours at work.

Looks like early September is the best shot.  So, to get your mech juices flowing, this next round will be set during the Clan invasion.  OpFor will be Clan units.  Player forces will be IS.  I'm leaning towards Ghost Bears vs Draconis Combine.  If there are any other preferences, by all means, shout them out.  As for scenario, I'm open to suggestions.

Howdy all.  The work schedule has started coming our for September.  At this juncture, here are the dates I'm looking at to run our next game at Game Empire:

9/10 or 9/11
9/16 or 9/17
maybe 9/28 (work schedule doesn't go out that far yet)

While 9/10 - 9/11 is a bit auspicious, I'd rather get us all going sooner rather than later, as I had to skip any gaming this month.  Let me know what works.

Scenario is a straight up head to head match of Clan Ghost Bear vs the Draconis Combine in 3050.  OpFor are the Clan Forces.  I'll have the rest of the details out shortly.

Cheers all!  :thumbsup:

Edit: Had the second September dates wrong.  Corrected now.

To follow up on dates, 9/10 and 9/17 are starting to look like the best dates for me.  Work is starting to go to hell again.  Please let me know how those dates work.

Cheers,
Valkerie

So, work schedule is solid now.  Game is Friday, September 17th at Game Empire.  I'll be there at opening to get a table.  Figure to start rolling dice by 10:30.

Game time is here:

When: Friday, September 17, 10:30 AM
Where:  Game Empire, 5037 Shawline St, San Diego, CA 92111

This time around it's the DCMS raiding a Clan Ghost Bear base, looking to blow up a few ammo depots.  Anyone wanting to stop by and roll some dice, or just check out the action, are welcome as always.

Well, that was a fun set of pics to see as I'm just finishing up a day of insanity at work.  Looked like a good game.
