One of my favorite scenarios from the game. A straight out slugging match between forces. 4P Alpha and I played a standard round to get him familiar w/ the ODE / GEV rules. 5P started playing but had to leave to a 4h meeting w/ CinC and 4P Bravo.
Starting out w/ 16 points of armor and 18 points of infantry on the 'G2' map.
I chose: (Nihon, shock)
Superheavy tank (2 pt)
Mobile Howitzer (2 pt)
2 Heavy tanks
1 Missile Tank
3 Lt tanks ( 1/2 pt ea)
4 GEV's (Hovercraft)
4 GEV-PC's (personnel carriers 1/2 pt ea)
3 Light GEV's (1/2 pt ea)
16 infantry and 1 Heavy Weapons team ( 2 pts)
He chose a heavy, defensive mix (Black Rose Merc's)
2 Howitzers (2 pts ea)
4 Heavy Tanks
4 Missile Tanks
8 Infantry, 3 Marines (2 pt ea) and 2 Heavy Weapons Teams
4P-A sent a few units piecemeal up the causeways which got taken out quickly but built a strong defense position in the two city spaces in the SW map. That ended up taking out one of my fast reaction teams in its entirety.
Taking out the 2nd howitzer w/ the remaining GEV's guaranteed endgame. 4P-A decided to end w/ honor and have all his pieces end in fire.
I finished the game w/ 11 scattered infantry, 2 GEV's, 2 GEV-PC's, a Light GEV, and the Mobile Howitzer.
Things we take away from this session.
1) I got lucky w/ only losing a few infantry and disabled units to spillover fire.
2) His choice of 5 special infantry units cost him as he had 30% less to work with compared to me.
3) He used defensive terrain very well but I would bait him to move out of it and he'ld get destroyed.
Looking forward to playing again.
