The Battle of FOB 1138: A 2500 point No Limits battle for the Station 42 War
Notes: We actually penalized the Hell Knights 100 points for the bunker because we have decided that fortifications in deployment zones really give the defender an advantage. This was actually a very close battle that came down to less than 100 victory points. In fact my last shot of the battle was an attempt to kill the Martian general with one of my snipers. Unfortunately I rolled a 10 and was not even able to re-roll with the sniper's sure shot ability because of the critical fumble. I rolled a disproportionate number of 10s during the battle especially when I only needed a nine to hit on most of those rolls. Of 18 railgun shots fired from the medium tanks only 6 hit and only 3 managed to do damage and the worst shots I had required a roll of 8 or under on a D10. The dice just were not with me in this fight. Still my wife fought a very aggressive battle using her tank and battlesuits quite effectively.
