...and we're back!

For those who don't know(and those who do, wish they didn't, and I feel like messing with them), we play in the Dallas/Fort Worth area, usually at Generation X Comics and Games in Bedford, or on rare occasions at Madness Comics and Games in Plano starting at noonish and playing until whenever. These days we mostly play Alpha Strike(400 PV, no customs except conventional infantry, all factions and eras welcome, max four artillery tubes if any), though we do still throw down in Total War(6000 BV, no customs except conventional infantry, all eras and factions welcome, max for artillery tubes if any) on occasion. We're also avid X-Wing players and have at least a couple Armada junkies, and we'll also throw down in just about any other game if the mood strikes us hard enough(Starmada AE and Leviathans particularly welcome). So dig up a chair, grab a rabbit, and feel free to join in!



And for those further west in the area:
Y2Komics in Fort Worth on Thursday afternoons usually starting around 6PM, and we play Alpha Strike (currently 115 PV, mix and match, but I'm sure we'll start escalating to 400 points soon!) Some of the older guys play Classic as well, but I'm not sure what their preferred game size/era etc. is. =)

I like rabbits.

T-Jeezy can you send me a list of what the 136th? (146th?) Dragoons have in you force for them?

Thanks.

T-Jeezy...

This is my punishment for that dignity picture, isn't it? [face palm]

Did you want just the A Call to War company, or everything I plan to paint in SLDF colors, or everything I own that the SLDF could possibly use?

(Actually listing out that last option isn't really viable. Too big.)

Ah I didn't realise you had posted what was in your call to war company. I will just go off that then!

Results for Track 3b: Backs Against The Wall

Mission Cost: -150 WC
Options Taken: -0 WC
Objectives Achieved: +500 WC
Total WC Remaining: 515 WC

Cost of returning to full readiness: 500 WC

(technically you guys should have paid 300 WC to get the dropship back online.  but i figured that, 1. the dropship has its own cache of supplies that can be used.  as long as you broke the 300 WC barrier that would be enough to get you repaired, and 2. that using straight WC for repair costs doesn't work too well.  woulda been nice to use one form of resource currency but at least we know now for next time.  consider all units fully repaired, including salvage.  you'll have 215 WC to play with on the final mission.)

I say, monsieur. You shall not throw acquisitions such as this without issuing a challenge. I throw the gauntlet down, ser! A duel there must be! Name your vehicle that will be your coffin and I shall meet you on the battlefield!

@Weirdo, would you mind including information about the Y2Komics group in the OP? (I don't want to create another thread and cause confusion.) =/

Y2Komics in Fort Worth on Thursday afternoons usually starting around 6PM, and we play Alpha Strike (currently 115 PV, mix and match, but I'm sure we'll start escalating to 400 points soon!) Some of the older guys play Classic as well, but I'm not sure what their preferred game size/era etc. is. =)

so i'm assuming you don't want to repair your units in favor of getting some options then?  have to admit its a bit of a surprise but whatever you guys want to do...

Track 4: Dreadnaught
Starting WC: -
Track Cost: 100

Options:
- A Leaf On The Wind: add +1 to all artillery drift rolls (-100 WC)
- Surprise Denied: add a Hi-Scout Drone Carrier and 3 drones to attacking force (-150 WC)
 
Objectives:
- Stay On Target: destroy LCNV Scharnhorst
- Hold Together: at least 33% of the attacking force must survive the destruction of Scharnhorst

Special Rules:
None.

Forced Withdrawl:
Not in effect.  This is the final battle, and will decide the fate of both forces.

Salvage:
Whichever force claims the field at the end of combat has full salvage rights.

 :Jumpy: HAPPY DANCE, HAPPY DANCE  :Jumpy:

just checked FR2765:Periphery and the Taurians get the Striker assault mech; finally a chance to use that mini that's been in my stash like FOREVER.  (also the -5A Emperor  O0)

Looking over the RATs for the Taurians, I can cover most of the mechs, several of the tanks (Maultier, Turhan  :P ), and a few of the Aerospace fighters. (need to find a second Lightning and a couple of Vulcans)

In all likelihood, I will be unable to play this Sunday. Might, MIGHT be able to stop by for a bit.

excellent choice

also, out of curiosity, I clicked on one of King's avatars and found that he was last active on 2 April 2016; checking our recently closed forum shows no post by us or him on that date (but I guess it may explain why he didn't show up in the obituary search I did)

Yeah sorry guys, I wanted to play some X-Wing and discuss the campaign more, but it looks like I have been scheduled to work every coming Sunday.  #P

I don't know what November looks like, but the holidays may be a busy time for me. So we might wait until next year to start the Star League Campaign (but that leaves time to get things right as well).
