The Battle for Skynyrd Station (a Station 42 War battle report)
This has been Clara St. Clair for the Titania News Network.
Notes: This was a 3000 point No Limits battle for our Station 42 War campaign. It's the largest one we have played so far for the campaign. We really wanted to have a set piece battle between the Titania Planetary Guard and the Hell Knights and we wanted to use as much of our armies as we could field. It was really quite a bit of fun for us to have a battle with this many vehicles and troops with all of them being painted and on finished terrain. We've been working pretty hard for the last few years to get up to this stage of playing again and we are really happy with the results.
The game played out pretty well with our usual number of weir die rolls. My snipers continually hit and continually failed to wound which seems to be their curse. The Titania mech was actually taken out by two light laser rifles and a frag grenade fired by one of the Hell Knights Veteran rifle squads due to nearly impossible rolls. We are getting better at the rules and better at playing our armies and we plan to have even larger battles soon with a 4000 point battle we hope to play over the 4th of July weekend. We will also be playing a number of skirmishes leading up to that. We just finished a 1500 point skirmish tonight in fact.
