So here was the setup. Flanked on both sides the humans have dug in to the town ready to defend it at all costs. The objective is the martians have to take the center of town before the end of turn 6.
On the Right flank we have 3 scout tripods moving in.
The humans have hunkered down trying to stay in cover until the martians get closer
Rallying in town. All the human non vehicle units started in fortified cover in their buildings. 7 full units of mk2 and 3's are waiting int he town for the martians.
The left flank contained the main fighting force of 3 assault tripods and a grenadier.
Humans get the initiative and start the game off. All I will say is Dave is a master dice man. First shot of the game he shoots a scout tripod, blows it up and vaporizes his own cavalry squad!
Taking initiative the 2nd turn the martians have advanced into the town limits and are now causing some real damage.
Not a good view for the forces on main street
Ted brings the rough riders into action.
Damaged first turn the assault tripod had the weapon damaged result so every turn Bob was rolling off with Ted to determine who would shoot the martian's weapons. Unfortunately for Bob he maintained control but failed to hit.
Damage is racking up on the scout tripods from the FT-17's (Using these as mkii's as part of my french foreign legion detachment)
More carnage as the grenadier is destroyed and bob advances the assault tripods down main street.
The humans, in a show of force, obliterate the other two scout tripods and secure the right flank. (Like I said Dave rolls like a CHAMP)
Serious damage is piling up on the assault tripod. 10 damage and still going....
This looks like a standoff to me. Having taken the center of town now the martians have to hold it. BOY there is a lot of units there contesting..... If only the martians could do something about that....
And with a mushroom cloud explosion the left assault tripod explodes and takes EVERY HUMAN UNIT WITH IT!!!! lol now if the assault tripod can just survive 1 more turn....
And in a stunning defeat, the humans take down the last tripod. Great game and good times.
