Oh…lawdielawdielawd! That was an intense 5 hour standoff. Let me start with the result: a bitter loss for me. 4 in recovery including leader+2 who has to see the doc so we don’t know yet what will happen to those. A small comfort is that he was slightly worse off than that with 1 permadeath and at least as many with injuries as mine.
I had him on the heels for the first 3,5 hrs, but then I started getting bold with my leader, leaving him out in the open and he was taken out with a shotgun salvo to the face. Also, I had two rounds where I rolled a ridiculous amount of 1s, which never helps. Those were the two main points I can deduce as reason for my defeat. NEVER entertain the creeping notion that the opponent had superior tactics.
The professor has spent hours crafting a centrepiece for our table.
Not only does it look great, it is also very playable.
We placed it dead centre for this game.
I started on the left, he on the right hand side.
After deployment I used infiltrate on my champ, shooty and placed him in the tower.
I also played ghostly tactic on him so he would be even harder to hit. It was the optimal position for his long rifle.
We spent one turn creeping up.
My leader moved all the way up to the centre. Would this be the day when he could finally use his shock stave?
Champ Stabby comes in on the flank where the orlock leader and his dudes are positioning. From this point carnage ensued…
Blam! Blam! Brrrapp! Braaappp!! Pew pew pew!
Aaaargh! Aiiieeeee! Brrrapp!
Choooom! Aaaaaahh! Pew!
Blam! Eeeeeek! Pewpew!
………that was the best description I could master of what happened in the following rounds.
Stabby stabs a dude. Coup de grace!
…Gets annihilated shortly thereafter by the orlock leader and his robot arm.
And then…the moment of truth. Lord snik charges the troublesome heavy stubber-suspensors-grappling hook wielding champ named El-ingeniero and smacks him like a pinata until OOA.
It felt good, but this was also my downfall as described in the intro.
It was an epic fight, lots of shooting and close combat. This was the last game before summer and we will now have the so-called downtime period.
Thanks for stopping by. Laters!
