|15mm Sci-Fi action during our game this week|
Yesterday we assembled at Dallas' place to play some 15mm sci-fi. Previously we have been using the Future War Commander rules to play these games, but this week Dallas and the gang politely indulged my drive to fiddle with rules and play the game using a home-baked variant of the Epic 40,000 rules engine.
|Dallas' beautiful Earth Force troops from Rebel Minis|
|Dallas' very cool UNE Superfortress Colossus - see this link for more on this model|
|Control Battalion and tanks wait in reserve for the Federals|
Dallas and Mike F took control of the Earth Force, while Brian and Mike A went with the Federals.
|Federal troops occupy the objective buildings - models from Khurasan|
|Mike F's mechanized detachment hits some AT SNAFUs early in the game|
|Overheard shot of the first Earth Force assault - the Federals were overwhelmed|
|Control Battalion leads a fierce counter-attack against the Earth Force troops|
|The Control Battalion remnants continue to battle for control - APCs are models from Old Crow|
|Another close-up of the heavy fighting - this would have gone better for Earth Force if that one detachment had not chickened out....|
|Siler tanks concentrate on the massive UNE walker|
|The Colossus is wreathed in the "smoke of victory" after knock-out hits from the Siler tanks|
Thanks to Dallas for hosting, and to everyone who came out to play. Thanks also to all for showing patience while we worked through the adaptation of the Epic 40,000 rules.
