Booming mining business
LOCATION : Damrod Mining Facility J28
COMMANDERS: Teemu Hemminki vs Pseudok
MISSION : Search & Destroy 2.0 | GAME SIZE: 150pts
After couple of years, I played against Pseudok’s awesome UFO Enemy Unknown inspired plague forces. We played the mining facility mission, but left additional campaign rules out because it had been so long since our last game.
I tried to add a little more mining feel by placing an actual mine terrain piece just out of the game table. I also rolled an weather dice for flavor and it showed that our battle was fought during a rain (no actual effect on game).
I used a force of average Enforcers, no peacekeepers, pathfinders or vehicles. My enemy used a force of varied plague monsters, new to me was inclusion of Bursters.
Game started rather slowly, Plague advanced towards middle of table and tried to stay in cover, while Enforcers took shooting positions on top of the buildings and managed to kill some S3A.
A Burster advanced towards Incinerator Enforcer. Assault Enforcer came to aid and killed the Burster. But well, I let the picture tell what happened next.
Anyway, that and some shooting managed to halt plagues advances on the left side of the table. On the right side another Burster and couple of S2A started to advance. Enforcers managed to shoot them before they became too much of a trouble.
And thus Enforcers won the day. If you are interested about my enemy’s point of view (and his awesome plague models), make sure to check out his blog https://statsfreak.blogspot.com/2018/09/battle-for-starfail.html
