We had so much fun with our last battle report that we are going through with scenario 2 The Front line.
We set up the board ready for action.
Randomly assigned the critter/tech tokens ready dealt our cards and prepared for battle.
I set the Martians up to block all the exit points on the board so I can then move where needed, Olivia set up the Heroes where the scenario stated, and her Troops in their deployment zone.
These Patrols where never just simple Sergeant Olivia thought. She had 6 Troopers with her, and was under to scout out the front. As she rounded the corner she held her hand up to her following troops.... Martians she whispered...... lots of them. As she settled behind cover she heard voices, human voices, a male and a female yelling at each other, something about which was the right way to go. Looking over she saw two people in cover on the other side of the street, a female cop and some young punk teen. Sighing she knew she had to help them get out of this or they walk into the Martian forces. OVER HERE! she yelled out to them. Hearing this the Martians turned their Disintegration rifles towards the soldiers.... Dammit, that's secrecy blown she thought.
Watching from the mother ships view device Martian Warlord Martin saw his grunts advance.... and two human civilians, they would make excellent test subjects he thought... capture, or kill them if you must he communicated.
The Heroes wisely decided it was time to get into cover, Olivia decided running was not her style, so she tucked them up against the wall, and started ripping fire into the Martians. If they where going down they where taking a load of Martians with them!
and the human forces where left in command of the field. Only just though, one Hero and one trooper who should get a medal!
As she opened her eyes and looked around she heard loud voices and shouts, its all right sergeant a friendly voice said, we will patch you up in no time. Good she thought..... I want some revenge! Did we save the civilians she asked? the Medic looked at her, some teen came in with a wounded cop, but we will have her up patched up, you just rest. You did well soldier.
Martian warlord Martin slammed his fist down... we had them! we out numbered them, we should have destroyed them all! Next time I shall send a squad leader for the troops so this will not happen again!
Well, that was a great game, it swung back and forth, all game, Olivias choice to stand in cover and fire was a brave move, and paid off! The random artillery strike changed the game, but I love the fact it happened, it adds so much to the story, and an element to remind you that this is not the only battle in the war against the Martians.
Again we played using all the stuff from only the box, so much variety and so much fun in this.
We cant wait to paly the next scenario.... so stay with us to see what happens when Sergeant Olivia and Warlord Martin meet again!
