One of our regulars got the group together for a team scenario game for the "spectre ops" modern combat system he likes.

I felt kind of like playing a battlefield style rush map as we advanced across the tables (yes i said tables it included 2 8ft tables and a spacer bridge using 2 4x4 and 2 6X4 terrain mats).

The start zone



The other end of the mission



A section of the battle-




each player had a special ops team of 4 operators each with dedicated roles.

I had the sniper element, we had an overall command element, fire support, combat engineers and a hazmat team to deal with chemical and other such threats.

It was just whatever we had available. i don't think the original plan was to go that big but we ended up using 2 8ft tables and a spacer to link them together.

6k stormcast vs skaven.

End of round 4 it was 16-16. If i get prio i can still get a draw. No real way to get to skaven objectives. If he gets double i lose. He rolled 5, i rolled 2.


6.5h but fun. Thanks to alternating combat strikes as long as players don't field super shooting/magic army it works quite well. And here double turn round 2 seemed bad but had i played better round 1 it wouldn't have been as bad as it was(let him to burn objective. Could have prevented had i remembered to do so...).

Much better experience than big 40k games. Player whose turn it is shooting, charging and then attacking with all makes it way too lethal(especially with short ranges). And 1 player waits lot longer and just removes models generally. Here both players had something to do both players turn.

This week, last couple of days in fact, saw me playing two games of Titanomachina (3-player on Wednesday, 2-player Thursday).

In the three player game I played Rhea (Yellow) and chased Eos (Blue) around the board while Styxx staggered around finding green habitats growing like mold in non-green quarters of the board... Styxx won scoring 34 VPs for habitats and 5 VPs for Rhea's left leg and sponson for 39 VPs total. Eos scored 32 VPs for buildings and 2 VPs for destroying for Styxx's thrusters, for 34. Rhea got 24 for buildings, 0 for three near ring-outs of Eos! All those craters where there used to be habitat buildings...



In this game it was Rhea vs Styxx with an early game pushing match in the yellow quarter where Rhea came off the worse, particuarly as Styxx repaired damage. I backed Rhea off to detect some more yellow habitat buildings (easier scoring than trying to break bits off Styxx or push them off the board, it seemed) and Styxx responded by wandering off to check the blue quarter for green buildings. With the respite, I managed to repair the heavy damage done to Rhea's rocket pod and will full power from Rhea's plasma capacitor destroyed 3 blocks-worth (12 habitat buildings!) of green infrastructure. Styxx came back to beat on me some more, but despite destroying 12 VPs of systems of Rhea to 3 VPs of systems on Styxx, that 16 VPs swing from not destroying the rocket pod for 4 VP and it destroying 12 VPs worth of buildings meant the final score was 41-31 in favour of Rhea.

With the vaccines finally rolling out I've finally been able to get some in person gaming time. My buddy and I are learning 9th Ed through an escalation league. We played a 500 point Combat Patrol game with my Dark Eldar getting their first outing with their new codex. My friend played his Death Guard and we had a fun back and forth game ending in a tie after 5 turns.

Necrons vs Admech + Armigers.
It was a decisive Necron victory. The highlight of the game was when the Triarc Stalker failed a charge & was in-turn charged by the Armiger & a Techpriest.
The Tech destroyed the Stalker with his servo-arm & drew the ire of nearby Necrons.

The Doomstalker then earned it's paint (well, a basecoat) by nuking the Armiger.

Took a look at your post - some of the trouble you might be having is that it sounds like you were using awful pilots (5 is... not a good number). Might explain why your gunfire was so ineffective.

Having been a fan of Battletech since like junior high school, your assessment isn't necessarily inaccurate, though. It's a really detailed system, but in a lot of cases that just translates to "clunky". IMO, the strategy boils down to two primary factors: maneuver and heat management. If you're running a lot of 'mechs that don't have much overheat capacity, it kind of cuts down the second option, too.

I find myself wishing there was some kind of intermediate ground between regular Battletech and their Alpha Strike rules, that keeps some of the interesting differences between specific 'mechs and weapons without all the extra layers of dice rolls and bookkeeping...

And based upon the write up, there were a lot of incorrect interpretations of rules (you can't punch someone in the legs unless they're higher than you).But, it was their first game, so that's forgivable.

Still, 4/5 pilots are the minimum. Gunnery 5 and above means you're only ever fighting at knife-fight ranges, and will probably spend most of the game trying to kick one another.

Even then, the game really doesn't make it easy. Having recently tried it out again after years with some friends over tabletop simulator, I remembered that there were clunky bits, but wow. Just falling over takes an eternity.

Facing After Fall table. Allocate damage in clusters. Maybe a Chance for Crit roll? Another damage check for the pilot. A minimum of four rolls (counting the piloting check you failed). Tried to stand up and flubbed the roll? Do it all again.

(Want to do all of that while standing on a shoddily-built two-story industrial building with a basement on a low-G world with a poisonous atmosphere in a tornado downwind from a forest fire? There are rules for that.)

I think you may have those reversed a standard trained IS pilot is a gunnery 4/piloting of 5 and a clanner is gunnery 3/piloting 4

that is the way we always run our games with the lance commander/star commander being an elite with a 1 level better skill set.

The only thing that is a standard 5/6 in the game are clan ground vehicle pilots that are not clan hells horse.

Falling over does not take an eternity..gravity is very quick



Seriously
.step 1 fail pilot check
.step 2 roll hex facing/mech side you fall on
.step 3 apply fall damage
.step 4 roll to avoid pilot (face smash into dashboard) fall damage
.step 5 if you fail step 4(almost never happens in our games)-take pilot hit roll to stay awake.

next turn roll piloting to stand back up facing any direction you want generates 1 heat and uses 2 hexes/4 inches of movement.

.... and worse, we didn't even have a Mech Mentor to help us out. Just the 25th Anniversary rulebook, which was not that easy to use on the fly....

The game took us 4.5 hours, and I am sure some of that was because we did not know what we were doing!

Trio of games all vs same guy. All monster seraphon vs lumineth, after round 3 he could literally remove all but 2 units he had and i couldn't win. Round 2 tzeentch vs same. This one got closer but his double on turn 2 was too hard to overcome. 30 pikes were murder and on round 4 running out of combat gave him sufficent lead.

Round 3 slaanesh vs gloomspite. Took too aggro move turn 1 losing too many units silly. Failed by 1 wound to kill mangler boss and 2x10 bounder and mangler squig ran over too much. Start of histurn 4 we realizet at worst he will have 9vp lead with max 7 i can score regaradless of what i do.

Ouch. 1-7 vs this guy.

My friend did a better job using cover and made a series of lucky roles. In the end, my speed was unable to overcome the Death Guard's resilience (I did blast apart his Warlord for the second game in a row) and he won the game convincingly.
