Back to business, sorry about the pause.


UPLF - Played by Motorhead Fan

A soldier picks up another weapon after he lost his last turn.
Image

He and his partner advance towards the Reds, with nothing else worth shooting at, they attack the lone rocket troops. Both are killed *The launcher on the right is still usable*
Image

The 4 near the wooden house split into two teams, one team attacks the medics. The first guy sticks his rifle into the gut of a medic and kills him point blank.
Image

Critical Fail The other soldier that was supposed to be with him gets caught up in the trees, Disrupted for the next turn (I don't know what's going on with this image, it refused to rotate on Photobucket)
Image

The other two run to the downed tree stump for cover, one fires at a Galacian NCO, But fails to kill him.
Image

OverkillRather than taking another shot at a soldier in partial cover, the other UPLF troop see's an opening on the other side, and decides to fire at PRA soldiers in front of him. His attack is more successful than first guessed and two PRA are killed, a suitable compromise for earlier failures in the turn

Kills this turn - 5

End of Turn Image - Image

Next up, Mozorovan Red Army, Duerer

Mozorovan Red Army - Played by Duerer

The APC advances and fires at one of the MRAPs, it punches a hole in it's siding but little else.
Image

The Officer's team fires at PRA soldiers in front of them, 2 are killed
Image

The others kill 2 more UPLF soldiers on the other flank
Image

The heavy weapons team recovers from the crash *Available next turn*
Image

Armor fires at the Armadillo, It misses
Image

The round lands off to the side and into the trees, branches are sent flying and the UPLF soldier who was stuck in the bushes is super dead.
Image

Kills this turn - 5 + 1 vehicle damaged

End of turn Image
Image

Next up, Galacian Ground Forces / Brikguy
Reinforcements have arrived!

x1 G -200 "Kodiak" Heavy Tank *Size rating of 5,  Armament main gun *5d6*.  Roof mounted MG *1D6* While visually similar, this is a Modern iteration of the same design that is being used by the Communists, While the Communist
Image



Reinforcements will arrive for each player prior to the beginning of their 3rd turn, so that they may have at least one chance to use them before they are damaged or destroyed.

Turn 3

Galacian Ground Forces / Brikguy
*A little insight to my fudge rules, for vehicle armor / size, I've been using D8s instead of D10s because I seem to have lost almost all of my D10s, and even so, they feel too high for the vehicles that Im using.  The Communist tank had an armor rating of 4D8 and the Galacian had a 5D8 *Because the former is supposed to be an up-armored relic, and the latter is a modern, advanced iteration of the same make/model*


The "gunner" jumps out of the disarmed MRAP
Image

The driver of that vehicle then takes off and smashes into the wrecked truck.The weapons team is knocked off the back of the vehicle
Image

The driver of another vehicle abandons the controls and grabs the gun terminal, Firing at the troops involved in the truck crash.
Image

The Officer and Grenadier are spared, but the other two are not
Image

An NCO runs to cover the medic.
Image

The Guerilla is taken down.
Image

The medic revives the other medic... Again, although this time there's no free turn involved *Rolled a 5*
Image

With no worthwhile Communist targets in front of him, the soldier that bailed from the truck fires at PRA troops instead, killing one.
Image

The last soldier in the group runs for the rocket launcher on the corpse.
Image

He fires the rocket down range at the tank.
Image

it lands just in front of the vehicle itself, but the explosion takes off part of it's frontal armor, opening it up for more damage (1 size damage)
Image

Now the HMG fires at the tank
Image

Light bits of armor are knocked off the turret, and the command turret is destroyed (Component damage, lost it's machine gun)
Image

Galacian Armor goes for the knockout
Image

Direct hit to the frontal armor, Mozorovan tank recieves a further 2 size damage. Now at effective size of 1
Image


Kills this turn - 4
+ 1 Tank heavily damaged

End of turn image
Image

Next up, Peach Resistance Army / Apolloyon
Reinforcements have arrived! - 1 PRA Scrap Tankette Size rating of 3, Armament  is one twin autocannon *3D6* - This is more or less identical stats to the heavy MRAP

Can the gun aim upwards? Because on mine, it keeps flopping down and it's a bit annoying.

You've got 2 soldiers left on the field,

Plus you'll also have 5 jaw-jaw suicide bombers that will give you an opportunity to do some serious damage before you're out of troops.

If I don't hear back from Appoloyon today, I'm going to sub myself in.

And we're back.  Sorry for the delay, you know.. Life

This was a relatively short turn as we're starting to wind down here in terms of available units.

Peach Resistance Army of Elkoss - Apolloyon

The captured truck is thrown into reverse and violently backs up sending dust and gibs of the bodies beneath it flying everywhere.
Image

Two fighters, the tankette and the truck all fire at the tank.
Image

The combined firepower is impressive, but is only enough to deal minor damage to the tank *Reduced from 5 to 4*
Image

The last available soldier flanks the APC looking to take out it's tires.
Image

All by his lonesome, he is unable to deal enough damage to pop any tires.
Image

Kills this turn - 0 (One point of size damage dealt to Galacian Tank)
End of turn image
Image

Next up - United Peach Liberation Front / Motorhead Fan
Reinforcements have arrived! - +5 Jaw-Jaw suicide bombers. *Each bomb deals 2D6 of damage*

UPLF / Motorhead fan

A soldier shouts towards the Jaw-Jaws that there's "poo" over by that tank, half of them charge towards the tank.
Image

Sensing that they will be too close to the explosion, the Peach guerrillas pull back
Image

The Jaw-Jaws blow themselves up, they moved as far as they could in the turn, and had they been able to get closer they may have knocked out the tank in a single attack.  (Kodiak II reduced from 4 to 3 size)
Image

Critical Fail The other two Jihadi Jaw-Jaws charge towards the Communist armor, one of them trips and falls.
Image

The explosive on his chest detonates, blowing both of the Jaw-Jaws up.
Image

The last two troops see the burning tank and decide to try their luck, they fire at the tank with their laser guns.
Image

With it's armor already battered, what should have just bounced off harmlessly, made it's way into the innards of the tank and hits something that causes the whole thing to blow spectacularly (BM-1U reduced from 1 to 0, destroyed!)
Image

The side skirt flies off during the explosion and two nearby troops are killed by shrapnel or overpressure.
Image


End of turn image
Image

Kills this turn - 2 troops, one tank
Units damaged this turn - Galacian tank reduced to 3S
Units lost to critical failures - 2
Units lost to  successful suicide attacks - 3

next up, Mozorovan Red Army / Duerer
Reinforcements have arrived! +12 Militia *Riflemen with 1 less armor point and 1 higher use requirement for all actions*

Mozorovan Red Army - Duerer Turn 3

The officer picks up the rocket launcher
Image

He fires at the tank Low rolls on both sides but the attacker squeaks on top. 1 point of size damage to the GFR Tank, Now 2/5
Image

The Grenadier runs up after the rocket is fired and tosses a molotov
Image

It doesn't do enough damage to hurt the tank
Image

Half of the reinforcements move up, a few troops in that group climb onto the wreckage of the tank and they in co-operation with the APC fire at the tank, an impressive amount of damage but once again the Tank squeaks by without taking size damage by a mere 2 points on rolls
Image

The rest of that group fire at the UPLF troops, racking up a large amount of damage, the two troops are gunned down and extra damage is applied to the MRAP, Mrap reduced from 2 to 1.

Image

The rest of the reinforcements advance towards the battlefield with no available targets, saving actions for possible reactions.
Image

Kills this turn - 2
GFR Tank health at 2/5
GFR lead MRAP health at 1/2
UPLF DEFEATED

Next up / Galacia / Brikguy

Alright, sorry for the needlessly long delay. here's the next turn.

Brikguy only gave me one objective, and that objective was completed on the first action, so there were a lot of units free to use elsewhere.
He had not one but two unbeilevably repeated crit rolls, the damage on one of them was so high I didnt even bother calculating it and just destroyed everything in a small area.
In a word, This turn dwarfs the earlier mega success the Commies had, this battle is now the his to lose.

The GFR tank rotates it's turret and fires at the tankette
Image

OVERKILL The damage roll and subsequent extra damage from critical rolls is more than 3 times the total defensive roll of the tankette, something catches fire and the whole thing goes up in a single shot. (Tankette health reduced to 0, ded)
Image

Away from the mayhem, the medics revive two more troops, but not completely *Rather than ripping limbs off, I'll just give them both -1 skill and halve their movement distance, the minifigs are a bit fragile*
Image

Three soldiers prepare to attack the forces in front of them, the hijacked truck and two peaches.
Image

I'll just leave this here...
Image

The troops in front are shot dead
Image

the truck's gas line is somehow hit, sparking a spectacular explosion killing all inside.
Image

The APC gunner fires at the crowd of Commies downrange. (Shitty, blurry picture, this doesn't show up on my phone when im taking them)
Image

Mayhem!  these peasant soldiers are ripped apart by a gun that's meant for killing armor.  5 dead
Image

The surviving operator in the truck moves the turret around, and fires killing the officer
Image


End of turn picture
Image

Kills this turn 12 *Including 2 officers*
Hijacked Hunter reduced from 2 to 0
PRA Tankette r educed from 3 to 0

Galacian Army
Heavy MRAP Still at 3/3
Forwardmost MRAP at 1/2
Rearmost MRAP at 2/2 but no weapons.
Kodiak Medium tank at 2/5
5 troops + 2 medics on the field
+ 4 troops in vehicles *1 in each MRAP, 2 in the heavy MRAP*
+ 2 crew in tank

Mozorov Communists
MSU Battle Bus at 3/3
7 troops and 1 grenadier remaining

PRA
1 troop remaining

:shock:
Next up, Appoloyon.

You've only got one guy left buddy.. make it count *he's tucked between the red truck, red APC and the turretless  white vehicle*

This had to be terminated prematurely,  probably not the best Idea to do them again.

Got very busy with my job, and it never got updated.  and eventually It was getting in the way of me cleaning out my basement.  so RIP
