Anything new on Cap'n Zippy and their WoB foes?

Love the concept here, even though I do tend to make a lot of fun of Urbies.

Game finished.

But Capt. Zippy was captured, trialed and was waiting for execution until he was rescued by another player ran unit.

Long story all three dropships were damaged and forced to go planetside, where they still lay. Zippy's Star became a short Star of 2 mechs, Polka-Dot Lance lost one of it's own and ran out of ammo except for that ton of Alamo rounds they found during one of the supply raids. And the other two lances lost either half or more but salvagewise I was able to make two whole new mechs from the destroyed.

Aftermath : I have Capt. Zippy piloting a mech, not the IIC, 3 Air-only Dropships and nine other mechs with 10 pilots. But Zippy is around... and the Word still has that 1 million C-Bill for his head reward, even tho they can't pay anymore. I think there still might be a combined Level II on the planet if memory serves. ( 1 Mech, 2 BA, 2 Tanks and a Striga-Eminus. I do remember that Striga-E escaping, nasty little long range bugger triple-LGR nose. )

Well, Truetanker, that sounds about right...considering what they were fighting, that is a solid
way to come out the other side. Don't think you quite deployed them crazy enough, but, then
again, you did pretty much have issues with blakist air superiority(only way a Hamilcar is going
to be forced down!)

I have to ask: how did Captain Zippy get a locust priced bounty on his head?

Well... He happened to come upon a minor but hard to get stockpile of MD drugs that were waiting to be shipped off planet and had blown up the said stockpile. Alongside with a Dropship loaded with materials for the Celestrial chassis-es.

As well as destroying almost a complete Level III, being the leader and all.

So, yeah a cool Mil. sounded about right. Mostly Destrucion of Private Property, Minor counts, with both the Dropship and Stockpile getting 3 counts of Major each.  O:-)

Hi Manticore, were you talking about the 37th WOB Urban Defense Detachment? If so, I've updated them here.

I shan't hijack the good Captain's thread too much by posting them here. :)

Any more news or updates for Cap'n Zippy post dark ages?

TT

Mara~ I just wanted to let you know, I am taking out Zippy and Co for another spin. Only this time I am going in with some new ideas.

First I am assigning:
Transportation Lance
2x BattleMech Recovery Vehicle
2x Flatbed Truck, Armor

Recon Support Company
Augmented Lance (Armor)
4x Condor, Liao
 2x Fa Shih Squad- ( Custom ) Trooper 1- TAG, Troopers 2 and 4- Laser, Trooper 3- MG
 1x Fa Shih Squad- ( Custom ) Trooper 1 and 3- Laser, Trooper 2- MG, Trooper 4- Flamer
 1x Fa Shi Squad- ( Custom ) Trooper 1- LRR, Troopers 2 and 4- Laser, Trooper 3- Flamer

4x APC, Hover ( 2-SRM, 1-Sensor, 1-LRM )
  Infantry Rifle Platoon, Foot ( 21 Troopers- 15- Auto-Rifle .52 and 6- Paramedic )
http://www.sarna.net/wiki/Field_Medic x3  }:)

4x Rock Rover-Half Track ( Small laser and 2- Auto-Rifle .52, 1 ton Cargo )
  Field Gun Infantry ( 30 Troopers- 24- Auto-Rifle .52, 6- Support PPC*, 6- LAC/5 )
http://www.sarna.net/wiki/Rock_Rover
http://www.sarna.net/wiki/Field_Gun_Infantry

Air Support
2x Warrior-7A
 
NOTES: All are equipped with their default mines, and have the AP-mount : Auto-Rifle. ( Which means .52 per Trooper, in other words, 1 point of damage each from secondary AP attack at range 1 ( 3 Hexes ). The LRR carries Smoke rounds. * Special note while the Support PPC is consider a vehicle, it is carried by this unit.

All of these will be carried as Cargo, while I need to make room for a Life support bay, it shouldn't be too hard. ( Technically 42, so I'll make it an even 45 tons. )

And as noted, Hamilcar~ carries 90 tons, and carries 4 ASF, turned cargobay ( 690 ), Leopard~ carries 2 ASF, turned cargobay ( 300 ) and Broadsword~ carries none that I can Find...

Thanks to StCptMara for a very great unit.

I'm trying to find out where and who I am fighting.

And now a little thread necro, because the Kickstarter is at 1.95 million with 51 hours left to go, so we all should be getting a free (FREE!) Urbie to use. So I thought that this is a good example of why you should use your free (FREE!) Urbie.....

Captain Zippy can now use both the  SuburbanMech UM-R90 and UM-R100!

Sure their slightly faster, but it can now keep up with the Urbanmech IIC!

Any thoughts of an update'd TO&E for Captain Zippy's Urbanmech Cavarly?

Nope. They are forever as they are, because anything faster defies the joke/curse the unit was created from:
