Standard 800 point PHR for New Varanasi campaign, round 2
I did not have a good idea as to what focus against the Shaltari. Their mobility would simply overwhelm my position.
To be honest I am still getting the hang of playing the Shaltari. Managing the gates and trying to anticipate the moves/activations of my opponents have proved to be quite challenging.
This was actually the first time I managed to deploy ny troops in a position that was not hopeless and required re-deployment on turn 2.
Ihad decided to play more aggresively, to try and threaten the PHR deployment. What I had forgotten was that the Kukris in the center would not benefit from their skimmer modifier right after deployment.
End of turn 1. The Shaltari advanced boldly. PHR deployed all but the Janus. - Turn 1 (Image 2 of 2)
I lost the initiative roll. Disaster! My Kukri got smashed by the PHR commander and his escort, only one of them surviving the first salvo. And yet, as my first activation of the turn I managed to kill the small PHR transport and knocking out one of the scouts it was carrying. Not an auspicious beginning.
End of turn 2. Ares were redeployed. Kukri were destroyed. Shaltari heavy thrust was the right flank. Triton down, one Janus destroyed. Juno also disabled and Immortals were on foot. - Turn 2 (Image 2 of 2)
End of turn 3. Shaltari took both large buildngs, one disputed (not for long). Ares redeploying into Shaltari territory. - Turn 3 (Image 2 of 2)
Ares redeploying. Coyote gets back on the firelane to blast Odin out of the streets. - Turn 4 (Image 2 of 2)
End of turn 5. Critical situation for the PHR with several squads destroyed. Shaltari decided no the advance full for it's League points bonus, as it won't be able to do it in time. Also it makes several yari and Haven easy targets. - Turn 5 (Image 2 of 2)
Bloodbath on the PHR side. Only one Immortals base left. Two Phobos, 2 Janus, 2 Juno destroyed on that lane. - Turn 6 (Image 2 of 2)
PHR Zeus commander took several heavy shot from Shaltari tanks and walker. Shield deflected all hits.
PHR foolishly advanced into Braves building, hoping to deal some damage in CQB. Not in the least. Immortals took 6 hits, Braves, 1. Then, remaining Immortal base jumped ou of a building to be finished by a Heaven transport
Shaltari dominated the battlefield, leaving few opportunities for PHR response. The end was close game. Shaltari 3VP, PHR 2VP. Bonus 1VP for kill points (403) for the Shatari. Tournament results Shaltari 12, PHR 08
