Had our regular Monday Dust night over at PI Midpoint. Since only Abdullah turned up early, I ended up playing our grudge match!
This time we increased the pointage to 200AP and I used the same army I used with Melvin last week. Kept it simple.
Objective: Key Position
Deployment: Force Collision
|Pressed the full 24" radius with my sniper taking the high point. Selected objectives were the sniper roost and the crumbled out building on the left of the picture
|Abdullah took the other corner and instead of deploying his sniper on top of the tank out them on the ground in front of the container
|Took the first Command Phase and pushed my units forward to secure the objective. I planned to flank with my light walker.
|Abdullah moves up his army during his Command Phase. He had rolled really high for Command too.
|I took some shots from Abdullah but managed to roll my armour saves.
|Abdullah moves up his entire army. Of particular note was this flank as it had his BBQ squad and Grim Reapers.
|I held the middle ground and started pushing my Infantry 3 units up.
|They stepped out to snipe at the Gunners
|While the rest advance under the cover of trees
|I kept pushing up my army while Command tries to heal my missing Spotter from my Sniper unit
|I kept my Laser Grenadiers back as a defensive force.
|BBQ squad took the bold move up and opened up on my Battle Grenadiers. Surprisingly enough, my men survived! It was payback time.
|And in return I poured every gun I had into this unit. He hit the ground and managed to survive.
|Meanwhile the other parts of his army moved up to support his left flank. I was guessing at this point that his objective was the hill on the top of the picture.
|Abdullah managed to take out one of my Flak Grenadiers and pulled back his BBQ squad. I kept the pressure on by pushing forward - guessing that the forest was his other Objective.
|I moved my Flak Grenadier behind the tank while the other bits of my army advance. Kept my Command at the back to hold my objective
|By now the Allies were in full retreat and I pushed in full force
|The game was won. I pushed 3 units in to capture the forest.
Time to look at 300AP very soon!
