Battle for Xilos

Beyond the Gates of Antares

Assault on Bunker 23

Scouting Force - 500 POINTS
VS Concord

We played the return to Base camp mission.

Turn 1
I pushed hard on the unit in the building I landed the Net ammo on him, but because he went “Down” I was only able to score 2 pins but I then got some pins from the rest of my shooting. Both Feral squads ran to get into better positions. His Drones shot up the Ferals killing 3. I move up my Skyraiders at the end of the turn so they could Assault the drones.

Turn 2
My Skyraiders assaulted the Drones he failed 1 save in Point blank shooting and I rolled d3 extra pins and ‘Down” on the damage chart. The sky raiders lost one to return shooting and then Broke off. They were then killed by a squad moving on table. I fired another Net round at the building putting more Pins on the squad inside. I then assaulted the squad in the building losing 1 on the way In, the C3 squad died due to their Co check at the end of H2H.

Turn 3-5
With my Opponent only having 2 squads and I down to 3 plus a squad of one model the turns went quickly. I ended the game by Auto breaking one of his last two squads sending his force into retreat.

thoughts. This was my first game using slingnet ammo it pairs really well with the xlaunchers net ammo to really lay on the Pins. My mvp was the Feral unit that was responsible for the demise of 2 C3 squads. I cannot wait for my Warlord order with my 16 Feral Mhagris models. Think I may have to order a few more.

  • neiltj1 says:

    Thx for the tips. I will reverse them next time. For the text that was me experimenting before bed. I will try a different color next time.

  • Maye Gelt says:

    Best way to solve the picture being in the wrong order is you upload them in reverse. For some reason it puts the last picture added first and works backwards.

  • Maye Gelt says:

    Good reporting, nice pictures. The annotation in black doesn’t work that well IMOO. I tend to use White, or will put outlined text over them in word or something to get a crisp line.
