I'd been on a bit of a roll against Paddy lately but this mission was going to push me hard, it named alarm call & with a starting force of a libranian & a single terminator with lighting claws.
I'd to try to revive at lest 3 out of 5 terminators that where placed in different rooms around the spacehulk & then get to hell out of doage, which meant getting the librarian & 2 other terminators off the board at a certain point.
The 5 downed terminators One sergeant, one with a flamer & 3 others as I said are placed in different rooms 3 by the marine player & 2 by the stealer player so this is where the marine player has to make a choice as he is either going to place the sergeant or the flamer more or less losing the one the stealer player places.
Both have their advantages that I won't go into here but I went with placing the sergeant in the room closes to where the librarian with the terminator would enter the board meaning I would have to make do without the flamer who was placed nearer to a stealer entry point.
But still I had 4 & was heading for the exit.
The great thing about spacehulk is that you know that sooner or later it's going to turn into a bloodbath.
& turn into a bloodbath it did wit the marines selling their lives dearly while all the time getting nearer to the exit, till it got to a point where I was down to just two marines, which meant I'd have to go back for one of the other two that I hadn't revived.
The chaos gods where to make me pay for those remarks straight away as my next overwatch shot was to roll snake eyes jamming my gun & leaving me to watch in horror as a stealer closed in on the librarian & riping him in half bring the game to an end.
Looks like fun Frank, we'll have to have a game some Wednesday.ReplyDelete
