The forces and strategies:
Today I represent you the forces we played and our strategies and ideas we had when we chose them.
We played our favored forces Capitol, Mishima, and Imperial.
First we chose our forces and then we made a role to figure out in which order we have to make the choice of the deployment zones. Mishima had the first choice and took the deployment zone to the right. Afterwards Imperial took the deployment zone to the left and Capitol got the upper one.
The board is divided in four areas. The areas are the flanks between each fraction and the centre. To make it easier I will call them from now Flank Capitol-Mishima, Flank Mishima-Imperial, Flank Imperial-Capitol and the Centre.
Letís start with the forces: The Capitol Army:K9 Team:
1x Handler K9 Team:
1x Handler Sunset Striker:
1x Sergeant Sunset Striker:
1x Sergeant 2x Sunset Striker Capt. Maj. M.d.Torres
B&G Lt. Col. Great Grey
The Capitol strategy is a kind of surprise strategy. The Capitol commander Enker is well known for his strategies of high gun power and less aggressive assaults. He normally cleans the battle field and moves his units ahead after the threads are minimized. But this time he wanted to offer us something different. On each flank will be an assault of a K9-Team to get the eggs as fast as possible. In a second wave the Sunset Striker squads will go for the more eggs. The Great Grey, both Sunset Striker Captains with Flamer and the B&G Lt. Col. will keep the Centre clean of the opponents to prevent any success of the other both players. The Mishima Army:Toshiro
1x FT spec.
1x HMG spec.
1x LeaderTiger Dragon:
4x Tiger Dragons
1x LeaderPhoenix Samurai:
2x SamuraiRonin Light Battlewalker:
The Mishima strategy of Bagomba is quite a different one. Toshiro will go in the Centre to draw the attention and the fire of the opponents. Of course after a level 5 Pool of the Night Shadow and some hard cover if possible. At the same time he will use True Sight to spot as many eggs as possible and to go after these eggs in the following turns.
The Deathbringer will do the same even if he misses the spells of Toshiro.
The both heroes will be supported with strong fire power.Flank Capitol-Mishima:
Here a team of Phoenix Samurais will be used as fire support.
Amaterasu and the squads of Ashigarus and the Tiger Dragons will first use their fire power to decimate the enemy and to move then to the eggs later on.Flank Mishima-Imperial:
Two Ronin Light Battlewalkers has to offer a lot of fire power on this flank. Of Course the battlewalkers are flexible to change the flanks easily if necessary.
The Ronins will do the same like the squads on the other flank. The Imperial Army:Wolfbane Packmaster
3x Squads Warhounds each:
2x Warhounds2x Squads Wolfbairns:
4x Wolfbairns1x Squad Wolfbairns:
1x HMG Spec.
My Imperial strategy is the following. As a first thing all my units have stealth. This gives me the option to keep the units hidden until I need them. I hope that I can keep as many units as possible hidden in the first round and my opponents will attack each other with full force because they lack targets on my flanks.
The second point of strategy is that I spread my force along the deployment zone. I have at least one unit of each egg with a small reinforcement to the Centre.
If each squad will be successful I will get at least 6 eggs. Because I have almost no heavy weapons in my force I am sure I have no chance at the end of the scenario. I have to take as many eggs as possible and I have to try to avoid a second charge of eggs or to delay this as much as possible.
My strategy is 100% target-oriented. Get the eggs and do not care too much about the opponent.
I have tried to show the three different strategies in this picture. I donít know if it helps but it looks nice. At least I think so
I will write about the single turns and the end in the next few days. I have to see when I have the time but you can already discuss the strategies and do your bets
PS: In any way I think you have to know to understand our scenario and our strategies that we follow the rules of the rule book regarding Stealth and not the changed rules of the FAQ-Team. I donít mean it insulting only for a better understanding.
