800 Points - Dropzone Commander Battle Report
Mission: Battle Royale (Main Rulebook)
Defend your territory and defeat any forces encountered.
New Varanasi was the administrative capital of the province of Danwar on the northern continent of Eden Prime. It had large government and tourism sectors and was considered an ideal location for wealthy citizens in the north of the planet.
Timeline: Week 2 of UCM Invasion of New Varanasi.
Reconnaissance has been done and now the factions are pushing forces into New Varanasi and skirmishing on the outer parts of the city.
Standard 800 point PHR for New Varanasi campaign, round 2
The idea was to focus on what the battlegroup is good against. That led to the following directions of conduct Hand of the Sphere -> Scourge AA
Phobos Battle Pantheoon -> Desolator
Ares Battle Pantheon -> Hunters
Immortals -> Warriors
Pegasus -> AA support (mostly vs Desolator)
Standard 800 point Scourge for New Varanasi campaign, round 2
First in was the Pegasus Group (Janus + Triton). PHR decided to let them flying close to one of the Large buildings for further deployment.
Scourge deployed second with their Warriors, letting the flying close to the same Large building as the Janus.
PHR replied with Force and Sent the Immortals full burn towards the same building area.
Scourge advanced their Prowler full 30in toward the Large Building.
PHR steadied their Ares in the middle of the field.
Scourge moved their Vanguard. Hunter more to the middle, deployed and Reapers to the side, deployed.
PHR finally entered the Hand of Sphere deploying directly in range/LOS of the landed Reapers.
Scourge cruised the Desolator towards middle board full speed.
PHR then entered the Phobos and deployed slightly to the right of Ares group
Zeus & Odin advancing on unsuspecting Reapers - Turn 1 (Image 2 of 2)
Desolator advanced to main PHR force. PHR fired and destroyed 1x Reaper, 2x Prowler, 1x Hunter, 1Dp on Desolator.
Desolator advancing fast, Phobos & Ares respositioning - Turn 2 (Image 2 of 2)
Scourge won initiative and moved the Desolator to max effect. Both Phobos got 1dp, one Ares was destroyed, Juno 1dp. Phobos fired to no effect on the Desolator, Janus fired as well.
Furball after the Desolator main attack. 4 points of damage on PHR units, plus 2 on buildings - Turn 3 (Image 2 of 2)
Immotals managed to do 4 points of damage on the Desolator from intrinsic AA fire from the windows of the large building. Several other craft destroyed. Hunters and Reapers were vaporized by Zeus, Odin and some lucky shots of the Neptunes.
Zeus & Odin trying to get rid of the pesky Warriors, inefficiently. - Turn 4 (Image 2 of 2)
Remaining Phobos tried to run away and got blow by Marauder fire. Situation very desperate for both sides as the Scourge had some air presence but the only ground force was the Warriors facing the Zeus. PHR had still both Immortals, Zeus & Odin. Last Janus was destoryed
Desolator with only one damage point left moved away from the Janus - Turn 5 (Image 2 of 2)
Very little to do on both sides. Infantry inside buildings was untouchable with current weapons. Both sides had ground units on opponent side, meaning no 3VPs. Only VPs were from destroyed squads. 3 each.
Roger used this units to good effect. It was his first time playing with it, but he maneuvered it very well as to make a lot of damage on the PHR side.
Having lost a lot of units and not being able to counter the Scourge Desolator, PHR decided to retreat (to the enemy side of the table) the last damaged Phobos. Mounted and moved on turn 4, moved and dismounted on turn 5. A good safe distance from the Desolator and other Scourge units. But it was easily reachable by one of the squad-less Marauders floating around the table. Scourge advanced the Marauder on turn 5 and finished the Phobos. PHR should have left the Phobos onboard till game end.
Close game. Lots of tough decisions. PHR and Scourge tied on 3 VPs each (one per enemy squad destroyed). Counting kill points, PHR won by 12 kill points only. PHR 11, Scourge 09
