After copious printing and painting a set of Ruins for a different themed table we had a new board setup to give a spin, so time to throw down!
It’s been a while… Bobba and Veers facing off against Luke.
It was going to be a relatively straightforward setup and slug for the middle objectives. Much blood was expected to flow.
In general I’d set up my Snowies to push left and centre, and speeders to wipe out the right flank. Bobba would assist left, with Veers supporting from the middle.
We both went with 2 Pip cards and Paul grabbed the initiative.
At the end of Turn 1 I’ve done some damage with the Speeders but everywhere else there’s minor casualties. Luke is in a VERY dangerous situation though.
I need to shut down Luke quickly, so go with Whipcord launcher. I’m expecting Son of Skywalker but Paul throws down Ambush. Luckily I win the throwoff.
At the end of Turn 2, I hold the left and centre objectives, and deny the right objective to the rebels. 2-0 to the Imperials so far.
But Luke isn’t dead…
With Veers dead I don’t have another 1 pip card. I know what’s coming but nothing I can do….
For some reason the photo for the decimation isn’t found in the Imperial database.. But suffice to say Luke smashes Bobba to pieces then moves into my Snow Troopers to cover himself from ranged fire…
My only generic card other than Standing Orders so I throw it down. Paul takes initiative with Push.
At the end of Round 4, the Rebels score the left object and I score the right. No-one holds the centre. Score is now Imperials 3, Rebels 1.
The Rebels once again secure the initiative, but they are running out of units to use.
We’re both on Standing Order but I win the roll.
All that’s left to do is clean up units and secure 2 of the Objectives
The game ends 7-3 to the Imperials.
END GAME THOUGHTS
Extremely bloody. I normally go for the walkers early but ignored them to focus on the troopers that could score.
Luke nearly tipped the whole game.
I have Veers. Generic general from now on!
Great game. The change in scenery from our Spaceport set up made quite a difference as lines of sight were opened up a bit more.
The board looked amazing – more top work from Imperial Terrain!
