    I’ve just put up a battle report of the game between Tony Francis and myself on the Slammers site. Lots of shots of explosions!

    Take a look!

    The rule system does reflect what you should and shouldn’t do with different forces. The Antargrans are trained but not veterans (and certainly not Elite) so – with a large force and not that much in the way of leadership (even with a named colonel with elite skills) – you’ve gotta use them in defence really: set up a sniper; use him to designate literally a dozen missiles a turn rom the APCs and jeeps to saturate targets (while hoping he’s not spotted, of course…) and – while you’re doing that – gradually creep forward the armour to blow big holes in people (especially with the Zentaurs) and use leadership to up their firing ability a bit.

    Oh, and use the infantry buzzbombs en masse. If you can do that from a defensive position, the Antagrans work well. In the attack? Not so much. That’s why they employed mercenaries!

    Talking of which, the Waldheims – with their anti tank guns – can work well in defence or offence: I just didn’t use them well. The Thunderbolts work well in the attack but he fought back hard from a defensive position and managed to catch a lot on the road while I was deploying. And for a change – other than his ability to blow his own main guns with poxy dice rolls – Tony’s dice throwing wasn’t too bad!

    He certainly deseerved the win! Oh and I put another page of pics up – Tony supplied his ones.

    Ya, would have been a bit of a different story if you could have gotten that sniper into play rather than BBQ’d!
