Thanks!  That's a huge compliment.  It is my personal goal to bring back the goodness from my lurking days in 2009.

Ignore tanks!  Post spaceships!

So... Another "who can build the biggest spaceship" race??

Round 3

The Space Pirate Ones

The Dread Pirate Roberts warps into the battle!  BAMF!

Image

Stat Card:
Spoiler: show
It's not done yet


Pirates begin to clamber up the boarding ladders onto the Artemis.
Image

They fire deck guns but they are not strong enough to damage the larger ship's 4d10 armor.
Image

Some of the Pirates do succeed in blowing off a turret.
Image

The Red Ones

Two commandos land on the wrecked frigate and start making their way aft.
Image

Two commandos on the Artemis's flight deck are gunned down by response fire from the security team.
Image

The remaining commando responds, killing one of the security officers.
Image

Now that the meatshields have done their job, NINJA TROOPERZ DEPLOY.
Image

The M ako makes a desperate charge at the Artemis, hoping to smash through the security line, but at only 1" of size left, it can't cover the full distance in one turn.
Image

Troops deploy from the freighter.  Some do not have jetpacks.
Image

The Sky Shark turns and delivers a broadside salvo and a torpedo into the Artemis, dealing 6" of damage.
Image

PEW PEW PEW PEW PEW PEW PEW PEW
Image

KABOOM AIEEEE
Image

The Blue Ones

Fighters continue their attack runs.  The Valkyrie II has overshot its targets and must come back around to line up a shot.
Image

The Seagull makes mincemeat of the charging M ako.
Image

Valkyrie Leader deals 2" of damage to the freighter.
Image

The Artemis rotates a little bit, ignoring the pirates latched onto the rear quarter.
Image

This is mildly disruptive to their boarding attempt.
Image

Rear guns fire at the freighter, dealing 2" of damage.  A torpedo is fired but goes wide.
Image

Admiral Oswald "We do better broadsides"™ Lyons orders the destruction of the Sky Shark.  They deal a total of 243 points of damage, and chew up the remaining 12" on the Sky Shark with room to spare.
Image

Commandos unload from the Seagull.
Image

They murderize a few pirates.
Image

Overwatch:

The Red Ones

Heavy Fighter at 8/8"
Artemis at 31/46"
Valkyries at 0/9", 9/9"
Seagull at 9/9"


The Pirate Ones
3/20 KIA
1 turret destroyed

It's not over for anyone yet!  As the Counciliar boarding parties prepare to take down the Artemis from the inside, their remaining ship begins to pull out of range of Imperial guns.  The Imperials continue to be tough heavy-hitters, but now they must devote some attention to the pirates trying to take advantage of the confusion.  The Space Pirates are running out of things to steal - they must move quickly if they want to profit.

Starting on the next round:
The Red Ones will to get an instant benny for every inch they lose in structure or troops.
The Blue Ones will get an instant benny for every inch they take.
The Space Pirates will get an instant benny for every inch of structure lost by the other armies, as well as every inch of stuff they steal.

ok and away-y-y we go!

Round 4

Space Pirates

Hookhand picks up the Mazel Tov Cocktail and runs forward.
Image
Image

The flaming bottle sails through the air
Image

...and creates a small burst of fire that knocks over the lead commando but does not kill him or set off the torpedoes.  Sorry.
Image

The Dread Pirate Roberts moves up alongside and prepares to shoot a hole in the hull.
Image

Success!
Image

"Follow me boys!" says Rexx, heroically.
Image

The space pirates who were disrupted gather around the breach.
Image

The monkeys steal a gun +1 BENNY
Image

The Red Ones

PEW PEW PEW The freighter covers its ass, dealing 5 size points to the Valkyrie.
Image

Then it makes like a cargo hauler and hauls ass out of there.
Image

The spacewalkers land on the wrecked Sky Shark and give the passing fighter a little what for - they deal nil size points.
Image

The sniper takes a point off the Valkyrie II.
Image

These guys get to the undamaged rockets and try to get one launched but fail the skill roll, even working together.
Image

THE NINJA TROOPERZ MAKE SUSHI!  HIYAH!  WAH!
Image

The Blue Ones

Commandos move up and mow down 4 of the pirates, including Hook Hand.
Image

AA guns are turned on Satchel who is blown away quite suddenly.
Image

The Artemis rotates and opens a salvo from its dorsal guns on the Dread Pirate, dealing 7" of damage.
Image
"Not to worry, boys!  The whole point of the endeavor is to get a newer, better ship!"

The Artemis whiffs another torpedo, and the freighter is now out of range of the guns.
Image

The Valkyrie II charges up the SHIP Buster again, using a little targeting data boost from the Seagull
Image

The remaining Valkyrie shoots at the freighter and does badly, only 1" of damage.
Image

The ship's engineers come out of hiding, most likely to be murdered but if not, they might get that deck gun running.
Image

0 kills

Okay get your orders in!  I think there are about two more rounds left in the battle.  I am desperately ready to clean this off the floor, but I will see it through to the bloody end.  For I am a RIVER to my people.

Wow I'm very excited to see how the instant bennies will turn the tide of battle this round!

Round 5

Space Pirates

The pirates murder as many marines as they can with the deck guns.
Image

They get two.
Image

This guy pops the other guy.
Image

This guy is hoping to bolt his gun onto the "fun side" of the Dread Pirate Roberts.
Image

Rexx is joined by two of his scurvy mates.
Image

They kill anything that moves on the flight deck.
Image

Also the last red marine.
Image

The monkeys put down their turret that they stole and take pot shots at the Red forces on the wreck.  They kill two more guys.
Image

The Red Ones

These guys arrive on the wreck.
Image

The freighter continues to fly out of the battlefield.  (But not too far, they have to pick up the troops if they can retrieve the datacube from the front of the Artemis)
Image

These guys begin to fly over to the Artemis.  They shoot at Rexx but fail to kill him.
Image

The sniper scopes in.
Image

Oooh!  Got him!
Image

These guys shoot at nothing.
Image

The freighter knocks another point off the Valkyrie.
Image

These guys still don't know how rockets work.  I really thought this little side mission would be more satisfying.
Image

THE NINJA TROOPER FAILS HIS ROLLS
Image

THESE ONES DO PRATFALLZ
Image

The Blue Ones

Fighters pursue.  They whiff some shots.
Image

The AA gun might ju-u-ust have the angle to hit this monkey.
Image

It does.
Image

The Artemis scoots its butt a good 13 inches.
Image

She proves once again that she is the Queen of the Broadside in this battle.  The Dread Pirate Roberts sinks with all hands.
Image

OH GOD MY PHONE
Image

Bridge officers prepare for battle.
Image

This guy pops this guy.
Image

Overwatch

Scores
The Red Ones
12/30 KIA

41" damage dealt
Frigate destroyed

Freighter at 13/18"
Sky Shark destroyed
+3 Bennies


The Blue Ones

26 Kills
67" damage dealt
Interceptors destroyed
Heavy Fighter at 7/8"
Artemis at 31/46"
Valkyries at 0/9", 3/9"
Seagull at 9/9"
+15 Bennies


The Pirate Ones
17/20 KIA
8 kills
1 turret destroyed, 1 stolen
Dread Pirate Roberts destroyed
+0 Bennies

As the battle continues, it is clear that the pirates bit off more than they could chew.  That's okay because I only added them to make life harder on the Imperials.  On the other hand, there's still a chance for Rexx to fly away in a shiny new destroyer!  Counciliar forces continue to push into the Artemis, but will they still have an escape vessel once they capture the datacube?  The crew of the Artemis suffers heavy casualties but if its fighters can take down the freighter, they will be able to claim victory.  I really want to use the SHIP buster but the freighter keeps moving just out of range.

I think the scores are still correct, but I didn't take great notes this round.  I think there are still about two rounds left so get your orders in!

This is pretty awesome, only I think it would be easier to see all the action if the pics were a bit bigger, the same size as the overwatch ones.

I was wrong last round, there was only one turn left.  Here it is.  Now with BIG PICTURES.

Final Round

Space Pirates

The first pirate is sent to stick his head out and of course loses it.
Image

This provides Captain Rexx with the opportunity he needs to burst through the hatch...
Image

...and into the Captain's Chair.  "Hullo, I've snagged something on my sword!"
Image

The Red Ones

"Whoa!" - Tag
Image

"Wah-whoaaaaa!" - Bink
Image

"Inform the president that we have the cube."
Image

The sniper nails the last imperial space marine.
Image

These guys just sort of move up.  They were too far away to do much.
Image

Surprise commandos!  They kill the admiral and the rock monster, but not Rexx.
Image

The freighter gives one more retreating pew pew.
Image

The Valkyrie obliges with a silent kaboom.
Image

The Blue Ones

The pilot on the Artemis continues backing up through the carnage, hoping to get a clean shot on the freighter.
Image

Imperials fire everything they've got.
The SHIP Buster goes KRAKA-KOW!  The Artemis launches a nuke.  Even the Seagull offers some pew pew.
Image

The freighter actually tanks all this damage.  I killed it with leftover bennies.
Image

Overwatch

The Artemis warps away.  Where will it go?  And who will be in command?
Image



Scores
The Red Ones
16/30 KIA
14 Kills
50" damage dealt
Frigate destroyed
M ako destroyed
Freighter destroyed
Sky Shark destroyed


The Blue Ones
19/25 KIA
31 Kills
80" damage dealt
Interceptors destroyed
Heavy Fighter at 2/8"
Artemis at 31/46"
Valkyries at 0/9", 0/9"
Seagull at 9/9"


The Pirate Ones
19/20 KIA
9 kills
1 turret destroyed, 1 stolen
Dread Pirate Roberts destroyed
Possibly they stole the Artemis?

Thanks all for participating and watching!  I hope you enjoyed the battle.  It was great for me to finally test out a lot of hardware and specialty units.  I'll follow up with a little "lessons learned" and review the 2018 rules and how that worked out.  Of course your feedback on any aspect of the battle is welcome.  I also intend to run more scenarios at this scale, so stay tuned!

Awesome! looking forward to hearing your thoughts. Hopefully they made running a bunch of giant fleet vessels easier.
