At this point, no. I lost so many guys to the wall climbing scheme it began to look pretty dire. It was a dumb idea, given that the enemies in this match had laser swords which we decided before the game started would have a UR of 3 and a damage of 3d6.

The CSL Soldiers have a total of 6 armour when they hold their shield (5 without or if attacked from behind) but don't count as Armoured in the 2010 rules. This makes them very hard to kill with small arms like these guys are equipped with. But the laser swords can rip them to shreds. The rebels also had lots of laser weapons which I always figured would be 1D6+2 damage, but even with that a 5 needs to be rolled to kill one of my guys. So, clearly, my advantage was that my dudes would he hard to kill even though they were outnumbered, unless my opponent combined fire on a particular unit. However I fed them to the slaughter by trying to scale the wall at a point where there were a bunch of rebels with laser swords, which are exactly the best kind of weapon to kill my dudes with.

In the end I think the wall climbing exercise let me score only 2 kills (MAX of 3) against them while everyone I sent up perished. This is a tactical blunder I will not repeat.


Image

A bit about these guys. I wanted them to be tough opponents like the Assyrians but I didn't want to give them a terrifyingly OP weapon like the ASE's Heavy Laser Rifle which, for anyone who doesn't remeber, does 1d6+4 damage. (Automatic kill against an unarmoured minfigure.) So these guys got a strong but not ridiculous Assault Rifle which does 1d6+2 at 10" automatic. The gun costs more CP than the soldier himself, then his shield adds another +2CP. Their strength is in the armour they wear and the shield they hold. The +2 goes a long way against technologically inferior opponents. While the ASE guys were able to obliterate as many soldiers as they could shoot, these guys are instead supposed to get shot up without falling. Only those with powerful weapons from the future are worthy opponents for the Space Canadians.

Turn 5 -- CSL

Image

The White Knight and the soldiers on the ground kill a pilot and the guy in the tan outfit.


Image

A soldier manages to get up on the boat.


Image

These people move up.


Image

The S-143 destroys the front gun turret.


Image

It sort of moves up.


Image

This ends my turn.

Turn 5 -- Rebels

Image

Only-One Kenoobie completely unloads the depth charge battery into the spider tank.


Image

The front is completely destroyed. I think this did two or three points of size damage to the tank.


Image

A pilot takes two of the remaining depth charges and hides behind the ruined turret.


Image

I didn't get a picture, but it looks like the soldier who boarded the boat at the back got killed by the Rebels.

This ends Turn 5.

Turn 6 -- Canadia Star Legion

Image

Some movement on the ice. At this point none of the defenders are down here.


Image

These guys bailed from the Ice Buggy when it got destroyed, they are recovered now. The buggy was destroyed last turn but I don't have a shot of it so I don't know who did it.


Image

The tank goes and sits on the gun turret.


Image

It tries to shoot at this guy but misses. That ends my turn.

Turn 6 -- Rebels

Image

Only-One gets an idea.


Image

At the back of the ship some guys start getting these huge explosives.


Image

This is how much ordinance has been expended by the Rebels up to this point.


Image

Bubba Fatt shoots out the person on the horse. This ends Turn 6.

I can't really tell what happened in Turn 7. But here goes.

Image

I think Major Natalya and her soldiers here killed a guy on the side of the boat.


Image

The tank moved a bit. It looks like those guys threw some bombs at it, but I don't know what the result was.


Image

Only-One climbs onto the launcher.


Image

Not sure why I took this picture.


Image

Looks like the end of Turn 7. Sorry about the shit quality for this turn.

I don't think you are.


Just kidding. A bit blurry and lighting wasn't the best but not too bad. I would get closer to the action too, you did in some pics, but you could do it more.

The room didn't have a light in the ceiling at the time. I installed one a couple months later. There was nowhere in the house that could hold the boat.

Oh damn, I saw this ship at Brickfete last year, and I'm pretty sure I met the person who built it. Happy to see it was used in a Brikwar!

So, as with other battle reports of mine, as it got later and the light got dimmer and we got more tired, pictures got worse and worse. This is the final picture I took. Basically, Only-One Kenoobie cut the legs off the spider tank, immobilizing it. The pilots bailed and are down on the ice looking for weapons. My other guys are on the boat on the top right. My soldiers managed to kill everyone except for Only-One, and so we ended the battle here.
