so my MAF had it´s first tryout we went for Unmasking. MAF against IA
This was my Army
Kornak LT, A Vanguard Hacker and Medic, Anyat, A Suryat (Tac Awarenes) and Shotgun Raktorak (5 man link), a Zerat Killer Hacker, one Chain Rifle Daturazi, CR Raktorak and the Full Auto Sogarat (Duo). To be honest I just wanted to play the Sogarat^^
His list was strange
2 Zhanshi, 1 HaiDao MSV2, 1 HaiDao Red Fury, Engineer + 2 Yao Zao, Tai Sheng, a TR Remote, a Guijia and a Daoying Hacker LT. Only nine orders…
He hadn´t played in a while and I advised him to make a Link Team with the HaiDao Sniper and Zhanshi, also he wanted to put his Lt up front and I had first turn, so I advised against it.
The table was like this:
So off to the report:
Surveillance remote 17-4/Rashnu reporting to Hexahedron local headquarter.
Activity in sector 12/34-4 Nostralia, Accesspoint to Yingquan Highway 2
Activity of hostile forces [Morat Aggression Force; Kampfgruppe 13/Freitag]

Guijia attacks Morat 2 (ISC Sogarat) several bouts of shooting, Guijia and Morat 2 (ISC Sogarat) are wounded/damaged. [Sogarat tanked 4 hits from the Guijia in the open, in hindsight I think we forgot about fatality though and the Sogarat probably should have gone down…] Guijia repositions. IA LT (ISC Daoying) reprogramms Husong and returns to camouflage. [Assisted Fire]

IA troops advance, Daoying attacks Morat 3 (ISC Vanguard, Hacker) via Maya;
Daoying attacks Morat 3 (ISC Vanguard, Hacker) via Maya
Daoying attacks Morat 3 (ISC Vanguard, Hacker) via Maya, Daoying KIA [3 attempts of Brain Blast saw the Morat tank two hits and crit on the third one with Sucker Punch. He conceded at this point]
Defence line broken, IA in retreat, MAF in advance, deployment of troops advised.
End of report
So we ended in his second turn as he only had 2 Zhanshi, 1 Engineer, a TR remote and an HaiDao with 2 orders left and no objective completed so far. While I had lost 1 model and killed the Designated target. In hindsight should the Sogarat have been dead as well, as I didn´t use it in my second turn, that is not that huge, but still.
His first game after a long while and we had a long discussion about his list and tactics afterwards.
Next report follows soon.
Thanks for reading.
