AE Bounty Battle Report "Bloodborn Pirates vs Boons Irregulars"

We tried out first game of AE Bounty and we used out new spaceport terrain for the first time tonight. The game pitted Boon's Irregulars against the Bloodborn Pirates. Boon's men were trying to destroy a pirate starfighter which had been repaired at Rosie's workshop. The pirates were attempting to save their ship.

The pirates set up the Duct Rats as scouts. Armed with LRF Slugthrowers these guys did some nasty damage to the approaching mercenaries.

The fighting started to heat up around the objective. Early on it looked as if Boon's men might over run the pirates and end the battle quickly.

Things started to get nasty. Both the group leaders were trading shots and both sides were taking wounds and casualties. The particle rifles that the pirate captain and quartermasters started taking their tole on Boon's crew.

In the end the pirates prevailed pretty handily. The particle weapons and the personal magnetic fields made the pirate individuals very nasty to deal with. Vinnie the quartermaster was able to get to the fighter and fly it to safety although most of the mercenaries had been taken out of action by then.

Great batrep and awesome looking terrain, kudos!

What did you guys think of the rules themselves? We've had AEBounty sitting on the launchpad for some time now.

AE Bounty ran smoothly and seems to have a lot of potential. You can make crews out of almost any figs you own and you don't need a lot of figs to play a pretty fun game. It's just the kind of generic sci-fi skirmish game I've been looking for.

Thanks! I made our first test crews out of Lego:

Having watched the development of the spaceport on LAF, it is cool to see it in use. It looks fantastic.

My own copy of AE Bounty is in the queue to get played this summer. It has loads going for it. I hope that it lives up to the hype.
