Instant Fame - 03/04/23 @ 3:00pm in Lansing, Michigan

Hi Folks,

To celebrate the upcoming Mercenaries Kickstarter, we'll be playing a classic scenario from the Star League era starring the Northwind Highlanders. On Saturday, March 4th at Summit Comics and Games in Lansing, Michigan, game setup starts at 2:30 p.m. and we start rollign dice at 3 p.m.

Northwind Highlanders
Instant Fame

Southern Continent, Bellatrix
Sian Commonality, Capellan Confederation
2 December 2616

The campaign on Bellatrix against Ajax's Avengers brought McCormack's Fusiliers instant fame. Arriving to find themselves outnumbered three to one, the Fusiliers quickly used their superior grasp of tactics and their ferocity to smash the defending unit. The retreating Avengers tried desperately to shake the Highlanders as they fled east across the southern continent of Bellatrix, but to no avail. Exhausted and bogged down by bad weather, the Avengers had no choice but to stand and fight.

These Optional rules from Tac Ops are in effect:
- Backward Movement (Expanded) [changing levels while walking/driving backwards] (p.22)
