Last time Fred got the win. I never really had a chance and was playing for a tie the whole time. I was not going to go down again. My game plan was tempo and movement, focus my fire, and let it rain.
We play a 6 objective game. The large bridge in the center, 2 small bridges on the flanks, the air field on the hill, and one building in each others deployment area.
Left flank with air field objective and small bridge
Center Bridge and the tall buildings in the deployment zones
Left Flank. Speeder det., Land Raider det., and Tactical det.
Center. Bike det., Predator det., and Tactical det.
My Deployment. I gave up the right flank completely. Leaving units there to draw attention and refuse that flank.
Left Flank. Assualt det., Tactical det., and Bike det.
Fred's Whirlwinds fire put a blast marker on my Land Raiders. The Tactical det. doubles toward the center bridge, and the Speeders advance to the bridge shoot, and break my speeders.
My Whirlwinds put a blast marker on Fred's speeders. The Land Raider advance to refuse the flank. My speeders double, shoot adding a blast marker.
Fred's Bike det. doubles toward the brigde. Speeder Det fails to activate and advances. Predator fail to activate and do nothing. Tactical Det advances and occupies the building objective in Fred's deployment zone.
Fred's Tactical det doubles to the edge of the Air Field. They shoot my Tactical det.killing 2 rhinos and add 3 blast markers. The land Raiders advance just behind them.
My Tactical det double for the Air Field, gets there first and gets shot up. The Assault det advances. The Bike det. secures the bridge.
In the the End Phase My speeders rallied. What unit removed blast markers were not recorded.
Fred's Speeder shoot my Land Raiders, failing to kill. They added a blast marker. The Whirlwind det advances and shoots the Land Raiders. Again killing nothing, but adding another blast. Fred then saw that he very nicely place his Whirlwinds in my Land Raiders LOS.
My Land Raiders shoot the Whirlwinds. Fred makes every save and takes a blast marker. My Whirlwinds in direct fire at his Tactical det on the bridge, clipping the bikes. The Bike det lose one and break off the table. The Tactical Det loses a rhino and 2 stands, collecting 4 blast markers. My speeder advanced to sit on the building in my deployment zone.
Fred's Tactical det. on the bridge, shot mine killing a rhino and adding a blast marker. The Speeder det shot, fail to hit, and added a blast marker. The Predators rolled up, shot, missed, and added a blast marker.
My 2nd Tactical Det in the building to the left of the bridge fails to activate. It made one move, spreading out into line for cross fire bonus. The Tactical det on the bridge shot Fred's on the bridge, handing out 2 blast markers. The Devastators failed to activate, collecting a blast marker. They shot and broke Fred's Speeders.
Fred continues his abuse on the left flank. His Tactical det kills another rhino and adds 2 blast markers. My Tactical Det fails to activate, marshals, and rolls a 1! Fred's Land Raiders fail to activate and make one move forward. I jump the Assault det up to contest. My Bike det remain on the bridge with a hold action.
In the End Phase;
Turn 3, the end.
Everything stay the same. We sat there and traded blast markers with no advantage to either side.
Fred's center collapsed. His Tactical det was shot down to the man, the predators broke, the Tactical det in the building was a blast marker away from breaking,
In the end I had no broken units, held two of the bridges, and the entire center of the board. Fred took the objectives on the far Flanks. A 4 to 2 victory.
