Kill Team Badab War - Questions of Loyalty
Emerging from the Warp thousands of light years away from their expected location years and after detecting the external duration of their time in the warp hand lasted several hundred years, the marines about the strike cruiser Shadowclaw sent down a small reconnaissance team.
An Imperial installation marked in the ships cogitator database now appeared to be in ruins and the recon team was send down to gather information and determine what had happened.
While exploring the ruins of the Imperial Installation the teams auspex sensons bleeped and detected movement and life signs. The team took up defensive positions until the identity of the newcomers could be determined.
The team leader and a scout with heavy bolter.
I have my combat specialist with powerfist, the sniper with plasma gun and a bolter marine
The team leader is wounded by the enemies close combat weapon, this turned out to be a power weapon and my scout takes a flesh wound.
My combat specialist makes his attacks and Alan makes a 6+ save to keep going.
My Comms specialist and my missile launcher marine relocate to other positions.
Even though I use the comms specialist and the auspex scan tactic to hit on 2+ my missile launcher rolls a 1. He then takes a second flesh wound.
My Combat specialist delivers the fatal blow to get rid of Alan's close combat marine. He then advances nearer to the combat.
My Bolter marine takes a wound.
He then gets taken out by Alan's plasma gunner.
My Leader has withdrawn to safety,
Unfortunately the game continues and he gets blasted by Alan's plasma sniper.
However we both had to make break tests. I passed and Alan then failed. This meant I won. I was one victory point ahead so I would have won if we both passed or both failed.
So it all came down to the last dice roll, you could not ask for closer
We were trying out Alan's suggestion to give all the marines +1 wound and +1 attack.
When you tallied up the kills 8 out of the ten casualties were caused by powerfists or plasma guns.
A fun game and a complete change after playing Ghost Archipelago.
