Battle Report: Oasis 2

After meeting P.J. Nicht at Totalcon "End of Summer Sizzler", I tried to arrange a meet'n'greet between our two groups for October.  That didn't happen -- I still have hopes that it will -- but I managed to organize a game instead.

Narbey (4 Frames & 16 Systems) = (7 Points per Asset) * (6 assets) = 42 points.  (Gators)
   Red Soldier -- 2Rd/1B/1G/1Y/2W + SSR.
   Blue Soldier -- 2Rd/1B/1G/1Y/2W + SSR.
   Green Soldier -- 2Rd/1B/1G/1Y/2W + SSR.
   Orange Soldier -- 2Rd/1B/1G/1Y/2W.

Me (5 Frames & 18 Systems) = (4 Points per Asset) * (7 assets) = 24 points.  (Zeroes)
   White Soldier -- 2Rd/1B/1G/1Y/2W + SSR.
   Black Soldier -- 2Rd/1B/1G/1Y/2W + SSR.
   Silver Soldier -- 2Rd/1B/1G/1Y/2W + SSR.
   Red Brawler -- 2Rh/2B/1Gd8/2W.
   Orange Brawler -- 2Rh+d8/1B/1Gd8/2W.


PJ_Nichts (5 Frames & 19 Systems) = (3 Points per Asset) * (7 assets) = 21 points.  (mechs)
   Dark Blue Soldier -- 2Rd/1B/1G/1Y/2W.
   Orange Delegator -- 2Ra/1B/2Y/2W.
   Magenta Armored Scout -- 1B/2Y/1Gd8/2W.
   Lime -- 1B/2G+d8/1Y/2W + SSR (x3).
   Light Blue -- 2Rd/2G/1Y/2W.

This is what the table looked like at the start of the game.

Events of Turn 1 (DDC@11): My White frame jumps down from the Moai it was on, moves into cover behind another, and hits Narbey's Orange frame for 1.  Narbey's Red frame hits my Orange frame for 1, it lurches forward in an attempt to counter-attack but comes up short.  PJ Nicht's Orange frame hits my Orange frame for 3.  Narbey's Green frame hits my Orange frame for 1, destroying it.  My Silver frame moves around the tower then does 3 damage to a Moai that PJ Nicht's Magenta frame was taking cover behind.  Narbey's Blue frame jumps from one platform to another and tries to attack my Black frame.  In response my Black frame moves into cover behind an assault gun and shoots the platform that Narbey's Blue frame is standing on, destroying it, and the Frame falls for 2 damage.  It then seizes my Orange station that it fell next to.  PJ Nicht's Lime frame moves out from behind a Moai and hits Narbey's Orange frame for 2.  PJ Nicht's Dark Blue frame shifts slightly and hits my Silver frame for 2.  My Red frame tries to run forward and attack PJ Nicht's Lime frame but can't cover the distance.

Me: 20 points.





Events of Turn 2 (DDC@9): Narbey's Blue frame squeaks between the platform structure and the edge of the battlefield and captures my White station.  Narbey's Green frame moves into the abandoned temple and hits PJ Nicht's Lime frame for 1.  PJ Nicht's Lime frame tries to find cover in the convoy.  Narbey's Red frame moves into cover behind the abandoned temple and hits PJ Nicht's Lime frame for 1.  PJ Nicht's Orange frame hits Narbey's Orange frame for 2.  My White frame moves towards the oasis and hits Narbey's Green frame for 1.  My Red frame runs over, slashes Narbey's Orange frame for 2, destroys it, and captures his White station.

Narbey: 21 points.
Me: 16 points.










Here's a few pictures of the aftermath.





















Thoughts & Observations:
  • As with the last game, I added some setting elements from a different table setting.
  • A lot of terrain got destroyed in this game, intentionally.
  • By the end of the game I had dropped the Direct Fire attachment on all of my Soldier frames in favor of the Green d8.
