I had a fantastic weekend playing 3 amazing games with the guys over at PI Fusion. A big shout-out goes to Jyue for organizing this event.
We played using the standard tournament pack found on FFG's site: http://www.fantasyflightgames.com/ffg_content/Dust-Warfare/Support/Dust_Warfare_Tournament%20Rules-web.pdf
The key difference being the Battle Builder which has Critical Positions and the conditions had Radio Support.
This is the battle report for the first of the three games I had on the day itself. I may have forgotten some bits of information so excuse me if I miss out on some elements.
Game 1 - Ray vs Abdullah
Objective: Eliminate the Enemy
Deployment: Force Collision
Conditions: Radar Support
|Deployment. KP game so it's kill as much as you can.|
|Sent my CC units to the right of my field. Wi the metal crates and ruins, they should be relatively safe|
|Meanwhile Abdullah moved advanced enmasse|
|I moved up my units to threaten him. Snipers went to work but didn't manage to do any harm.|
|While Abdullah moves his army up, he stays just beyond my Heinrich range of 30" (black dice)|
|Made a mistake here. Moved my Heavy Flak Grenadiers up the middle but forgot to check LOS from his Rattler.|
|While simultaneously moving my assault units up.|
|Bit by bit the army moves up trying to take out Abdullah's unit. So far both of us have taken very little in terms of losses|
|And the jostling continues. Still it is only Turn 2|
|After one round of shooting, I lost 2 of the Heavy Flak Grenadiers. Long Tom made sure my first unit of Snipers lost it's Spotter. I tried to heal but no luck. He also took a point of damage off my Ludwig|
|Abdullah advanced with majority of his army hiding in the forest and behind cover|
|I bit the bullet and braved the fire by advancing my Gorillas into his midst. In return I lost two of the apes to shooting.|
|I expected the Gorilla to at least kill one guy but alas no luck. This ape is toast.|
|Committing further troops into battle, I shifted my HQ unit from Blutzkruez into the middle of the board to hopefully wipe out the unit of 3 Tank Hunters which were threatening my tanks|
|Rhino and buddies moved up behind the forest and took out 2 of the 6.|
|I had lost a 4 of my units including my Ludwig. It was Turn 4 and we kinda ran out of time due to a 2 hour time limit so we had to call it. Abdullah took 4 points and I only managed to steal one. Ouch.|
