Battle at Boon's Trading post (1500 point No Limits battle report for The Station 42 War)
This battle was a major loss for the Titania Militia. Boon had been using his workshop to build improvised armored vehicles for militia forces and they suffered fairly heavy casualties. Boon has already vowed to have revenge on the Hell Kights for attacking his home.
This has been Alphonso Marks for the Titania News Network.
Notes: We could have almost called this "The Battle of Too Much Terrain". Normally we like a lot of terrain but I think we got it a little heavy in this battle. The Hell Knights actually had a slight point value advantage in this fight of about 150 points. My wife was allowed to set up the sandbag wall and scatter terrain around the Trading Post however she wanted and normally the militia has proved pretty tenacious in defense. Normally the "technicals" do a lot more damage as well but I think they were restricted a bit by the dense terrain. Even my hover craft felt a bit hemmed in. All in all though it was a good battle the played pretty smoothly. We didn't really have any new units to play with so it was a pretty easy battle to manage. I did seem to have better luck with the die rolls which is usually something my wife has more luck with.
We are both employed at The University of Central Missouri and the new president there has given us a four and a half day holiday for Independence Day so we are planning to play a few skirmishes and one large 4000 point battle in Station 42 itself. We had originally planned to wrap the campaign up by the end of the summer by we may extend it to the end of the year. We plan to pick up with a new campaign early next year based on Ceres and the asteroid belt pitting the Martian Soviet Socialist Republic and the Jovian Empire against a rebellion supported by the Confederacy of Outlying Systems and several mercenary armies in the employment of various corporate interest.
