So finally my QK hit the road again, some Nomads stirred up some shit at a diplomatic meeting and everything went downhill from there. Scenario was Diplomacy is Dead which we modified with 2 Classified on top.
So he brought:
Interventor Lt, Mobile Brigada MR, Intruder HMG, Grenzer Sniper, 4 Alquacil (2x FO, 2x Medic), Spectre FO, Reverend Healer.
I went for a lot of bodies today:
5 Ghulam (HMG Lt, Sniper, Missile, Hacker, Doc), 1 Yuan Yuan, 2 Al´Hawwa (FO, Sniper), Bashi, Hafza FO; 2 Group: Ghulam Doc, Djanbazan HMG, Yuan Yuan, Alquacil FO
He won the roll off and chose Initiative, I duly stripped two orders.
Grenzer, Interventor and Medic went into the middel.
Nomads Turn 1.
First he coordinated some moves then his Alquacil went forward, dropping a repeater in the process and shot at my Djanbazan, who promptly fell unconscious. Hmm.
The Spectre appears and lays a mine to hinder movement on my left flank.
His Intruder pops out and gets toe to toe with my link, the sniper ate it (breaking the link) and the HMG killed the Intruder in return.
Then he did some suppressive firing with a coordinated.
QK Turn 1
In came the Yuan Yuan, one walked the other dropped right in target.
He rounded the corner to get the Spectre, gets shot to small pieces (3 wounds), Spectre and Mine survive!
On the other side of the board things don´t fare better, the Alquacil survives two Chain Rifle hits and downs her as well. 😦
The Sniper shots the Alquacil he survives, the the Hacker marches off and downs him, finally. Tough bastards.
HMG guy hits the Grenzer he goes down. Doc restores the Sniper, obviously before she shot the Alquacil as stated above… and gets me Experimantal drug. Link gets reestablished.
The Medic heals the Grenzer, curses.
Interventor scans the Yuan Yuan for Data Scan and Reverend Healer proceeds to kill the Alquacil.
Bashi comes in, some repositioning and the Alquacil FO´s an Diplomat. Not much happens, besides the Bashi killing the healer and trying twice to synchronize a Diplomat.
The Grenzer duels himself with the Al´Hawwa Sniper and the Hafza downing boths over several bouts.
The Brigada makes a long shot at the Hacker and kills him with two 3´s (needing 4´s) beating the 1 (needing 5) from the Hacker.
Interventor hits the right Bashi but fails to kill her.
Bashi downs the Interventor an sets up to attack the Grenzer (bad idea), Alquacil Fo´s a Diplomat.
Grenzer downs Bashi, not much more
Al´Hawwa emerges and downs Alquacil (who traded shots with mine for several rounds without effect)
Missile Launcher girls vaporizes the Brigada, really there should be a crater.
The last medic proceeds to get up the downed Alquacil, but misses the Interventor with the pistol
Time to finish this my Link goes up the table, synchronizes the Diplomat (wait that happened last turn) and wants to kill everything. The two Alquacil survives the HMG, down my HMG Lt (who was in a 5-Man Link), hit back against the sniper, who gets a second attempt and kills the Medic. My Doc kills my Lt and then dies trying to kill the Grenzer. That sucked.
Having free reign the Spectre (now Lt) grabs one Diplomat and runs away with her, after Fo´ing her. Time for the end game.
Fo´ing the last Diplomat my Hawwa downs the last Alquacil,making the Grenzer the last Nomad in play.
The Grenzer kills the Hawwa, putting me into retreat.
Running with a Diplomat at hand (which my Sniper Synchronized last turn),if I make it off the board with him I win.
Being mad from all the wounds he suffered this day the Grenzer jumps to shoot the Sniper, missing her and literally exploding the Diplomat in tow (4 wounds). Well killing a civilian is game over so the QK wins (but he had more points so we called it a draw)
Was a very close game and a good thing to play with retreat for a change.
He had a hard time dealing with my Link Team which was a defensive Castle and I couldn´t dislodge his Spectre. Some hard hitting rolls on top made it perfect. But killing diplomats really was not that smart…
