Marian forces are raiding on Gambilon, and Canopian forces have been sent to extract high importance forces who have been left wounded in one of the preliminary assaults.


The Canopian forces entered the combat zone from the southest, the Heliport only a few hundred meters away. Canopian forces consisted of three lances of 'Mech, plus a combined lance of 2 mechs and 4 vehicles (2 scorpion light, and 2 Striker light tanks), all escorting a combined force of Magistracy Medical Corps (A MASH unit, 2 field medics, some Gabriel Hover Transports and a Hyena Mech), with the intent to recue the injured personal and retreat to safety.

Marian forces deployed 3 Centuries of units on the northern end of the field, and moved towards the heliport with intent on capturing the injured infantry forces. While the Marian Forces were under an intial order to not fire upon the Medical Staff units as their objective was to capture not destroy the personal, they knew they could also not afford to lose the valuable prisoners to Canopus.

After a few rounds of battle, the Canopians were able to extract the injured troops, the Marian forces opend fire on the Gabriels fleeing the field with the injured troops, successfully destroying one Gabriel, the other managed to flee to safety.
The game ended with the Marians retreating from the field, and the Canopians achieving only a minor victory for saving only half the wounded forces.



This was an ALPHA STRIKE event played on Hex Maps (or in this case, Hex game boards)

Towards the end of game, Marians suffer a minor defeat, while the Canopians can only hope for a minor victory as the lead Gabriel is almost off the field.

Again, the players had fun. Changes I would do for a future run, is  provide maybe some roadways/bridges to aid the Marians in crossing the river. Otherwise a few minor tweaks is all that is needed to polish this scenario.

I assume there'll be a fudging of their Battleroms.
