Another Sunday and another chance to pit my rebels against Victoria's Imperials. This time we upped the forces a bit and were playing with 700 points.
The Imperials had Orson Krennick and an Imperial Officer, three identical units of Stormtroopers backed up by a team of Scouts, a section of Z-74 Speeder Bikes and the ever present Boba Fett.
My Rebels were Leia Organa and a Rebel Officer, four units of Rebel Troopers, a team of Rebel Commandos and a pair of AT-RT walkers.
The terrain was laid out and we drew a very basic battle plan. Breakthrough mission with Battle Lines deployment in Clear conditions.
|Rebels occupy the rocky ground|
|My cunning plan of AT-RT with Flame-thrower and Comms jammer worked right up until I started rolling dice!|
|Rebels sneak up the left flank|
|Newly painted scouts, why are my newly painted figures so ineffective and Victoria's so good?|
|Orson Krennik confers with Boba Fett. One of my highlights was taking the Mandalorian down.|
|Imperial troopers use cover to sneak up their left flank|
|Bloody speeder bikes are everywhere and constantly denying me cover|
|"Go on sir, we'll cover you, you'll be ok"|
|"I'm sure there were more of us when we started"|
|The Rebel right flank is looking very thin. The R5 was destroyed before it could fix the AT-RT|
At the end of the game, the Imperials had three units in my deployment zone to only one of mine in theirs, another solid victory to Victoria.
