Battle for Xilos

Beyond the Gates of Antares

The first contact. (First game between two GoA Beginners, Scenario: Let the Battle begin!)

Scouting Force - 500 POINTS
VS Ghar Empire

First of all i`m sorry for my english. I will try my best to give you a good overview of our Battle. It was our first game and i was suprised how good it worked.
We started with an easy Battle without any Special missions or any extra rules. I placed my Army over my whole side of the Battlefield while my Opponent placed his Suits on one side. In the Beginning i started to move my Troops in good Positions awaiting the enemy. He moved both of his Squads on one Flank. His Battle Squad was much more offensiv than hin Assault Squad (I think this was one of his mistakes). I concentrated my Firepower on his Battlesquad and was able to kill three of them with luckyhits in two rounds, while my oponent killed only a few Infantery man. Only my Plasmacanon was hit once and i roled a 10, so it was defeated. The Leader of the Battle Squad didn’t pass the Panic Test, so one Squad was out of the Game. At thies Point we didn’t wanted to end the game, so we decided to move on.
His Assault Squad was much harder to kill. Every Turn he kept one of my Squad down with his Shockcanons and moved nearer to my Position. I also got the disorder dice every turn, so my firepower was heavily reduced. But one after one I killed every Suit without the leader. The leader fought aiganist one of my Squads in Hand to Hand combat, but luckily, he was`n’t able to hit and had to move out of the Hand to Hand combat. My squads hit him a few times with overloadammo but he passes all his Panic Tests, because of the pin marker he got. It seamed he would take out a few more of my man, but in the end he lost one of the Panic test just before reaching my last Squad. So the Algory one in a bloody fight to last man Standing. But the victory tasts bitter in view of the number of losses.

    I commend you on your first game victory. My start is similar…except that I have gone nowhere with the starter except building it. I still need to find an opponent.
