As I have been writing a themed story to go with my games played I decided to teak a break from that on this battle report. In this game my friend Kelly’s Heroes and I replayed episode three. We were playing 500 points as we are getting used to the game. In turn 1 I did all I could do to get my Boromite units as close to the relics as possible. I had two work gangs, two units of gang fighters and 1 x-launcher with crew. Kelly’s Heroes had a unit of concord bikes, 2 units of regular troops, a command squad and a unit of targeting drones. Kelly’s Heroes decided to stay back at first and set up firing lines. He was worried that I would get into an assault if he got to close and was weary of losing troops to quick in a large melee.
By turn two I had moved into touch with one of my gang fighter units while my x launcher was forced down due to the black dice and then a unit of work gangers was forced down because of a second black dice. A round of shooting for the Concord player didn’t go to well as I was able to make my res checks. I was also able to get a second unit of gang fighters into touch with a second relic.
At turn three Concord bikes attack one of my forward units of work gangers that I had supporting a unit of gang fighters. I also take fire from his other units and loose about 4 models altogether from separate units and I miss horribly with the x launcher.
Turn four I start to move away with a relic and his bikes move to cut off my escape and wipe out the unit. My X launcher hits one of his regular squads but no real damage. I am now losing about 2 two three models out of each of my 4 units. I decide to go for broke and I take a 4 man unit of work gangers and I move forward shooting at one unit of regular troops while sending vorpal charges towards his bikes. He evades both vorpal charges. I also hit with the x launcher on a unit of his that had pins. He fails his test and off they go. Then he finishes off another of my work gang units with fire from a flanking unit of regular guys supported by target drones. I lose a squad of 3 man work gangers.
Turn 5 and I hit him with the x launcher again and he loses another unit of guys. I also charge his bikes with my last remaining 4 man group of work gangers killing off the bikes. He kills my x launcher’s crew. Turn 6 I am able to secure a second relic and the game end 2-0.
