Bill (from the AQMF forum) is at it again, this time playing through my Rally to Old Glory scenario, one of my favorites. Here's some pictures and Bill's write-up.
"We did Old Glory today. Had 2300 points of Martians vs 1800 points for the humans. The Red Martian failed to appear as scheduled.
random deployment spread both sides out. The Martians had a grenadier
in zone 6. An assault, and an assault w/bd in zone 1. A veteran w/sniper
drones, an assault w/gg, and a slaver w/3 units of scorpion drones in
zone 2. A veteran w/bd and a scout in zone 3. A slaver w/4units of
drones in zone 4.
The Humans had a unit of mark 2's in zone 1. A
command unit and a unit of mark 3's in zone 2. An infantry unit, a rough
rider unit and a unit of mark 3's in zone 3. A mark 4 and 2 infantry
units in zone 4. A command unit, 2 hmg units, a unit of mark 2's, and a
mark 4 in zone 5. And 2 infantry units and a mobile artillery battery
in zone 6.
The martians went first an immediately began closing
on the town. Heat rays licked out at the humans, killing 5 tanks, an
artillery piece, and an infantry stand.
Human tanks position
themselves to shoot. The monitor on the west double moves to get away
from the 12 drones that were closing on it. The veteran take 1 point of
damage and weapons malfunction. The hmgs wipe out a unit of scorpion
drones. The monitor on the east side targets the grenadier and scores a
direct hit with msin gun. The resulting explosion is quite pleasing.
martians go first again. They continue to close the town. Black dust
covers one building, killing 3 infantry stands. The slaver sets it on
fire. The humans win the roll off for the veterans heat ray and kill 2
drones. Other martian fire kills 2 more tanks and another artillery
The humans circle the wagons. The rough riders immobilize one
slaver while the other is destroyed by a direct hit from the last
artillery. This leaves the scorpions stuck. The veteran w/bd is
immobilized by the other rough riders.
other veteran double moves to take over the scorpions. Three assault
tripods on the east side of town kill the mark 4 and the last artillery
piece. On the west side the drones kill a mark 3 and damage the mark 4.
The humans move as best the can. Industrial might brings another mark 4
in zone 5. Hmgs kill 2 more scorpion drones. All other fire is
ineffective until the other hmg unit shreds an assault tripod and it
The humans finally go first. The hmgs on the east side
blow up yet another tripod. The remaining tanks kill a couple more
drones. The martian drones rush the town. They kill 5 infantry stands
and a command unit. Heat rays kill 2 more tanks.
The martians go
first on turn 5. The drones swarm everything they can reach. The tripods
close in. After the ripping and heat rays are done, only a damaged mark
4 and 1 hmg stand are left. Industrial might brings a unit of mark 3's
in zone 3. All fire is useless. The rough riders ( amazingly still
mostly alive ) head for old glory. The martians finish wiping out all
units within 12" of old glory. Industrial might brings another mark 4 in
zone 2. The martians are 3 units from breaking, so the humans try for
kills. A drone dies finishing a unit, but that's all. The remaining
drones finish off the rough riders and 2 mark 3's are killed.
ends in a Martian victory. It was very close. Even though the humans
were pretty wiped out, the martians were only 2 units from breaking.
There were 2 drone units with only 1 left, and the veteran w/bd had take
4 armor damage.
It was a very good game."
