Scheduling a game of anything with my buddy Rob all but takes an act of congress. Thus after a month and a half (or so) of cancellations, we managed to finally get a game of Battletech in. We played the usual straight up and kill each other scenario, 8k points per side, he was fielding a medium Free Worlds League lance with uber pilots (by my standards) vs my heavy Marion Hegemony Century (their version of a lance) along with a lone infantry platoon.
|Despite the lanes running thru it, we counted the whole thing as a heavy forest. Unfortunately the to-hit modifiers were so bad we did little but just plow through it rather than fight in it as I had hoped when setting up the table.|
|Well, we tried to shoot thru it, but quickly realized the folly of that...|
|lol, I called snake eyes and he obliged with his AC20 in point blank range of my rear armor! He was not happy, especially as this was a repeat performance of the same thing earlier in the game vs. the front armor of my Mad Cat!|
|As usual, my little circus side show was totally ignored despite inflicting minor damage almost continuously...|
The game went rather smoothly and was bloody as usual. He ran up the white flag after loosing an apollo and a hunchback. I lost a charger (no surprise there) though both my Cyclops and 'looted Mad Cat' were in really rough shape and about ready to fall back under covering fire from the Stalkers.
All in all it was a fun time, and I'm looking forward to an all Urbanmech (yes, you read that correctly) game vs. Kushial this weekend!
