Episode 4 in our Campaign in the Parvana Mahrukh System.
The Eastern Fringe Trading Company had managed to push through the enemy ambush in the previous game. http://kampgruppe-engel.blogspot.com/2018/10/ambush-on-parvana-mahrukh-solar-auxilia.html
The Eastern Fringe Trading Company were repackaging the valuable trading goods from the Benafsha region at the hastily constructed base Yuditskaya.The Expeditional Protection Force planned to attack the base before all the trading goods were shipped out of the region and a small attack force was put together.
The defences at base Yuditskaya were minimal but heavy transport aircraft bearing reinforcement could be called in if need be.
The base were hit just before dawn...
We would be playing and old Raid mission, Sabotage mission.
We played a 1000pts game but as this was such a small game we decided that the Militia Provenance of War upgrade on the Force Commander would be free.
And as always, click on the pictures to see a larger one.
The defending trading company forces were erecting additional defences as they prepare to move the last trading wares out. The base are not fully operational and the base defences are not fully manned.
The good thing is that patrols have been out the whole night checking the nearby area.
Hopefully this will give me time for the troops to spread out and man the defences if the enemy should attack any time soon. This will probably not happen any time soon... ( *insert dramatic music...* dum dum dum... )
The Expeditional Protection Force troops are closing in on the base on foot, not wanting to sound the alarm by using vehicles.
But to no avail, the alarm is sounded.
The Expeditional Protection Force are moving in from all sides...
House Naryshkin have heard the distress call and joins the defenders. The problem is that they are on foot at the far most end of the battle. They have a long way left to actually be useful.
These massive cyborgs will hopefully steam the tide of enemy troops...
I think my Arvus pilot have found its preferred target...
The Expeditional Protection Force are really really good. All that time with their education is really shining through, that or the cheer experience with casualties suffered earlier by the The Expeditional Protection Force...
Troopmaster Natailia Koluchev and her squad is not enough to stop Force Commander Stein and his grenadier squad.
I have to assault with my last remaining Veletaris with rotorcannons. A weapon far to heavy and clumsy to operate at this close quarters but it is the only chance I have. With luck I can club someone down with the rotorcannons...
The problem is that the enemy have already troops behind this line...
The Thallax heavy cyborgs have been charged by Grenadier Sergeant Zacharias Hellwig and his men.
The objective is unprotected and Force Commander Stein is free to secure the wares for The Expeditional Protection Force.
Wow, what a game.
Even though it was a loss for my Solar Auxilia this was a really intense and fun game.
In the campaign ahead we are now open to move in any direction and have not decided on what will follow next. We have some plans but nothing decided.
Until next time, thanks for stopping by.
