Massacre in the desert
LOCATION : Command Post Delta
COMMANDERS: Kneeoerica vs Tedster2002
MISSION : Patrol 2.0 | GAME SIZE: 150pts
A meeting engagement as patrols meet at ruined fort and factory. Unwisely splitting forces, the Forge fathers push on two fronts, aiming to seize the central objectives. The inexperienced Dwarf commander felt armour and firepower would be enough for a quick win. He was right but not in the way he expected.
In contrast, the veteran Enforcers, ably led by Captain Tedster, a veteran of the Latham Insurgency, sought to seize the high ground and use his superior melee ability to cut down the Steel Warriors.
Taking the high tower allowed the Enforcers to jump into combat with covering fire, cutting down the rash charge of the Forge Fathers.
Meanwhile, on the left flank of the FF, the remaining troops temporarily held the second objective, before, fittingly, Cpt Tedster cut down Father Kneeoerica.
A solitary Steel Warrior exited the scene, prepared to report that the Enforcers were here in force and urgent reinforcements were needed.
