Friday night was game night once more for the Friday Night Fire Fight Crew and I managed to get along for a game. I agreed a game of Beyond the Gates of Antares with Darryl, with both play Ghar so double disruption dice made the game interesting.
We randomly rolled a scenario and got a scenario where you have to retrive a drone from the middle of the table. You start with only half your army available to start with and the others have to pass an order test to come onto the table from the second turn. Well we had pretty similar armies (2 Battle suit squads, a squad of tectorists), Darryl took the Disruptor Cannon on it’s own and I took it as part of a squad of Outcasts. Darryl started with one Battle Suit squad and his tectorists, I started with one Battle Suit Squad and my Outcasts. Well the rest of my army obviously got lost on the way to the battlefield, even the cries of death of my entire Outcast squad in one turn couldn’t get them to the battle. Darryl used one of his tectorists to grab the drone and then used his battle suits to stop me targetting the little blitter as he ran off with the drone.
I enjoyed the game, but those d10 are in trouble. My Luiggers rolled a 10 on limited ammo the first time they fired! I did manage to kill 3 of the 4 tectorists but that was it.
A shabby tactic by Darryl, but well played.
On other fronts I’m making progress on the buildings for Stalingrad, just need to finish off the concrete exterior and the interior on the last three and the concrete floors on all four buildings.
I’ve also continued the inventory of my miniatures and have now catalogued 1679 of which 92% are built and 63% are painted. I just added my AT-43 army which is a pre-painted game so that helped increase the percentages of both. Lots more bags to go through as well as the two crates of unassembled figures (whoops!).
