Big Alpha Strike Game 156 mechs on the table
« on: 16 January 2018, 16:33:55 »
This past Sunday our gaming group had an Alpha Strike game of 2 battalions a side for a total of 156 mechs. Wolfs Dragoons Red Guard Battalion and the Kell Hounds 2nd Battalion battled the 5th and 8th Sword of Light during the War of 3039.
The link for the battle report and more pictures is here http://mikeopolis.blogspot.com/2018/01/mini-monday-mech-madness-ii-big-battle.html
I may have a low amount of posts but I have a PHD in Battletech and mechs older then most people on this board!

Indeed I love those kinds of games... Alpha Strike is an excellent addition to BattleTech for being able to play the big story-shaping kinds of battles we read about so often.  Thanks for sharing!

Huge game. Did you use the Alpha strike Lance abilities?

Nice report.
Have you got the unit breakdown anywhere?
Just curious to see what your PV bought each side.
