Sorry for the delay, everyone.
Remember that reinforcements arrive next turn.  If you are a reinforcement player, send in orders now.  

Bavarian POWs

Image
The POWs pick up the Artifax.

Image
In response, the Britannians open fire, killing two Bavarians and one T.L.A. jump trooper who had the misfortune to be within the Steam Gatling's prodigious field of fire.

Image
Von Klaus finishes his schnitzel and looks up to see his troops under attack.  "Ach!" he says, "I should maybe help zem, ja?"

Image
He reaches into his satchel and pulls out a silenced Luger.

Image
In an impressive display of marksmanship, he kills both a cavalryman and the Steam Gunner.


Peaches

Image
Louisiana Jones and the Peach Nightmare move around the rock wall at the edge of the ruins.

Image
The ranged Peach troops attack Captain Harris, shooting him out of his saddle.

Image
The Bayou-Tek mecha kills the last cavalryman and his horse.

Rogue VoL

Image
The Wyrm fires on the Britannian Landship, but misses.

Image
The two Acolytes attack the last remaining tower gunner, but they miss as well.

Image
Bjorn moves up to attack the Britannian ground troops...

Image
... but he draws response fire from their Enervated Phlogiston Projector.  Bjorn is wounded, and two VoL troops -- a flamer and a shock trooper -- are killed.

Image
Bjorn charges the Britannian lines...

Image
... and cuts down two troops, including the EPP gunner, with his OT beam saber.

Image
The remaining shock trooper moves up, but stays behind cover.

T.L.A.

Image
Bob the Unbuilder glares at the hovering VoL transport up ahead, and comes to a decision.

Image
"All right gang, we're going after that transport!  RAMMING SPEED!"
"Boss, I don't think we can ram a --"
"BRACE FOR IMPACT!"

Image
The Hover Killdozer accelerates towards the dropship, killing an unfortunate VoL who happened to get in the way of its dozer blade.  Too late, Bob realizes that his vehicle will pass harmlessly underneath the transport, doing only minor damage.  This is not acceptable.

Image
Leaping into the air, he wedges himself in place with one chainsaw while sawing open the bay doors with the other.

Image
Success!  He climbs into the Wyrm's cabin.

Image
The Hr-36 decelerates and swings over the field.  Its gatling guns open fire on the Peaches but only succeed in wounding Louisiana Jones.

Image
The jump troops attempt to secure the ruins by firing on the nearby Bavarians, but to no avail.

Image
However, their Sergeant does manage to claim the unoccupied rocket launcher.

Britannian League

Image
The one remaining soldier heads into the ruins to recover some of the Artifax.  He exchanges fire with the Bavarian armed with the gyro pistol, but neither one hits.

Image
The landship fires its rocket-torpedoes at the Bayou-Tek mecha.

Image
Which explodes, scattering Bayou teknology across the landscape.  One of the Bavarians is also caught in the blast.

Image
Encouraged by their success, the landship's crew fires their Steam Gatling at the Wyrm dropship.  As it crashes to the ground in a massive fireball the Landship's crew starts up a rousing cheer.  "Huzzah!  God save the Queen!"

Image
A somewhat disgruntled Bob the Unbuilder emerges unharmed from the rear hatch.

Image
The tower gunner strafes the field and kills the Bavarian with the gyro pistol.  

Image
Overwatch.

One infantrymen and three Landship crew.

Keep in mind, the landship can do plenty of damage on its own...

This battle makes me want to make an army of Harrison Ford characters.  Han Solo, Indiana Jones, Jack Ryan..

TLG should make a Harrison Ford minifig.  Maybe include it in a City helicopter set.

Just one set of orders left.
