In the first turn, the Nationalists infantry moved withing firing range and sniped one of my outlaying pickets. In retrospect, the pickets were kind of useless.
So, realizing my defensive position was less than useful, I counter charged! My snowies hit and destroyed the Droideka and a Dwarf Spider
The Infantry retreated to a conveniently placed defensive Kelli slipper, and fired a scattering of shots back at me.
Still holding the momentum, the snowies charge in, fire, and hit only for wounds, no enemies knocked out. Stormtrooper effect indeed.
I finish deploying around the slipper bunker so all of my men can fire on the enemy. At this point, I am still in the lead, 5 to 4. This was the last of the manuever, at this point it turned into a slugging match, as there was no where left for the Chinese and droids to retreat to.
While the Chinese ground my forces into oblivion.
This was a lot of fun, and there were not a lot of rules or silliness to get in the way of the fun and trash talking. Of course, losing to my five year old daughter is a mite humiliating, but I can comfort myself that she is a military genius. And, I roll bad dice in the clutch situation
