Chaos Campaign 10 - Leading Edge Green Hippos

Aaaaaand we're back! I told you everyone's favorite ragtag band of post-apocalyptic freedom fighters would return soon. I said there would barely be a noticeable delay, and while that turned out to be patently untrue, at least it wasn't outside the realm of possibility.

In this installment, our ersatz heroes take a Capellan contract to do a reconnaissance in force of Davion defenses on Kittery. Because...Capellans, this reconnaissance in force turns out to be a frontal attack on entrenched Davion troops. With friends on the way.

The Davion Light Guard. This are the initial deployment. The scenario calls for half the defenders forces to come in on turn 6. Ideally, I wanted to have these guys swept by then. I let Junior Fett set the terrain, so I should have expected...difficulties.

Like bridges.

Still, I manage to get the more mobile Rangers into a flanking position to hammer his Guards out of their entrenchment.

I also left my short range missile launchers in a safe position with clear firing lanes. Because...

Turn 6! The situation devolved from there, a bit. It was  a hard fought victory, but since this was a 'reconnaissance' mission, I figured getting out without being destroyed piecemeal was plenty of victory.
