|The life of a Veritech pilot in the Robotech universe.|
|The alien ranks.|
|The stoic Destroids await their fate.|
The Zentraedi have 8 turns to knock out the five Destroids AND get at least five of their battle pods to exit the far side of the table. The Zentraedi start the game with 16 pods, including one ace pilot in an Officer's Pod, three light missile pods and one heavy missile pod.
The RDF detachment has five destroids - three "Raidar X" variants, one "Excalibur" variant and one "Gladiator" variant. The destroids are supported by a pair of VF-1A Veritech fighters that will enter the game on turn two.
Dallas and Dave V. took command of the Zentraedi, while Brian and Mike F. played the RDF side. The Zentraedi would start the game with priority in turn one, and after that both sides would roll a D6 to determine priority.
|Zentraedi Commander leads the way.|
|VF-1As arrive in figher mode.|
|Alien pods advance through the base.|
|What could go wrong?|
|No problem - we've got this under control.|
The game was a real blast. The Destroids fell back in the face of the overwhelming alien numbers, trying to use their firepower for as long as possible. The VF-1A fighters made a decent entrance, and shot up some aliens, before Mike opted to use them as a means to hold up the Zentraedi Officer's pod, which was a tough and hard-hitting customer thanks to its ace pilot.
|All together now...|
|The VT pilots give the "Guardian" mode a try as they engage the Zentraedi's ace Commander.|
|The Destroids are swarmed by the Zentraedi assault.|
|The Zentraedi Commander finishes off the last Veritech pilot.|
|The Gladiator is swarmed under by Zentraedi pods.|
|Raidar X - not long for this world...|
|Never tell him the odds!|
|Brian's "6" holds off the Zentraedi!|
|No worries for this Destroid...|
|Victorious Excalibur stares down the enemy!|
A very dramatic ending for an outstanding game. Everyone really played in the spirit of the sides they were representing, and it made for a very good battle. Thanks to everyone who came out to play, and a big thanks to Dallas for hosting. We'll see everyone in Brandon this weekend!
