Guardians of the Silk Road: Diplomacy is Dead

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.

Middle ground

Right Flank, Sniper is Link Leader

Reserve Al´Hawwa

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.

DIGITAL CAMERA

Down he goes, never to rise again

DIGITAL CAMERA

Dropping stuff

The Spectre appears and lays a mine to hinder movement on my left flank.

DIGITAL CAMERA

Here you are

DIGITAL CAMERA

That doesn´t look good.

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.

DIGITAL CAMERA

Down she goes, only to rise again.

DIGITAL CAMERA

Here he is…

DIGITAL CAMERA

no more

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.

DIGITAL CAMERA

Hi

DIGITAL CAMERA

Haha

He rounded the corner to get the Spectre, gets shot to small pieces (3 wounds), Spectre and Mine survive!

DIGITAL CAMERA

Eat, well no hot lead obviously.

On the other side of the board things don´t fare better, the Alquacil survives two Chain Rifle hits and downs her as well. 😦

DIGITAL CAMERA

Down she goes, only to be ignored from now

The Sniper shots the Alquacil he survives, the the Hacker marches off and downs him, finally. Tough bastards.

DIGITAL CAMERA

At last

DIGITAL CAMERA

And stay down

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.

DIGITAL CAMERA

Good work Doc

Nomads II

The Medic heals the Grenzer, curses.

DIGITAL CAMERA

Hi again.

Interventor scans the Yuan Yuan for Data Scan and Reverend Healer proceeds to kill the Alquacil.

DIGITAL CAMERA

Upps

QK II

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.

DIGITAL CAMERA

We go round and round

DIGITAL CAMERA

Come with us three. No! The Oda and Engineer are the Echos

Nomads III

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.

DIGITAL CAMERA

Over here

DIGITAL CAMERA

See that, that is what I call a shot.

Interventor hits the right Bashi but fails to kill her.

QK III

Bashi downs the Interventor an sets up to attack the Grenzer (bad idea), Alquacil Fo´s a Diplomat.

DIGITAL CAMERA

Returning favours

DIGITAL CAMERA

Here we are

Nomads IV

Grenzer downs Bashi, not much more

QK V

Al´Hawwa emerges and downs Alquacil (who traded shots with mine for several rounds without effect)

DIGITAL CAMERA

Ha ha, and stay there, what he didn´t do.

Missile Launcher girls vaporizes the Brigada, really there should be a crater.

Nomads V

The last medic proceeds to get up the downed Alquacil, but misses the Interventor with the pistol

QK V

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.

DIGITAL CAMERA

I don´t believe this.

Nomads 6

Having free reign the Spectre (now Lt) grabs one Diplomat and runs away with her, after Fo´ing her. Time for the end game.

QK 6

Fo´ing the last Diplomat my Hawwa downs the last Alquacil,making the Grenzer the last Nomad in play.

Nomads 7

The Grenzer kills the Hawwa, putting me into retreat.

QK 7

Running with a Diplomat at hand (which my Sniper Synchronized last turn),if I make it off the board with him I win.

Nomads 8

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)

DIGITAL CAMERA

I get you!

DIGITAL CAMERA

Upps.

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…
