Over the Victoria Day long weekend, I ran the latest game in the ongoing Fawcett Avenue Conscripts Star Wars skirmish campaign.
In game 9, Chewbacca led Rebel forces that annihilated the Imperial reinforcements rushing to the site of the battle in game 8. "Chicken Run". This meant that an opportunity arose to try and rescue Captain Rec, who was wounded and captured back in game 8.
The current game was a variant of the Rescue scenario in Wiley Games' Wasteland Warriors game.
The Imperials set up in a loose line within a move of the south end of the table. Their goal was to make it to the shuttle landed at the north end of the table. The Rebels, again led by Chewbacca, were trying to rescue Rex, the famous Clone Trooper elder and Clone Wars hero. Boosting their strength was Ahsoka Tano, who was eager to aid her old friend and comrade in arms.
The game turned when one of the Stormtrooper leaders managed to defeat Chewbacca in close combat, putting him out of action!
Game MVP was surely Ahsoka, who managed to get to her feet, Force pull her lost saber, and withdraw in good order. She made every blaster Deflection roll she attempted, wounding or putting out of action several Imperials.
The game was basically a draw, but Rex is gone from the campaign for good, and Chewbacca is out for the season.
Thanks to Hugh, Dallas, Rob, Kevin, and Frederick for playing with me.
