As each commander jockeyed for position, the two command lances of each main company found themselves in direct conflict. The battle was joined in earnest!
|A pair of 5th EC Quickdraw QKD-Cs take cover.|
|Kurita Grand Dragon & Guillotine advance past deserted vehicle repair domes.|
|Charlie Blookhawk and his heavily damaged Victor VTR-C draw down on a Kurita 'Mech!|
Kurita forces used their superior speed to seize the right flank!
|In the foreground, a Centurion takes aim!|
|Mysterious MW Kgosi Z. seeks cover, his Swayback HBK-5P laying down a blistering laser barrage!|
|Combined fire from Kgosi's Swayback and Riggs' Quickdraw bring the Grand Dragon down!|
As the battle ranged, the Kurita forces drew the EC into a high-stakes, all or nothing game of total destruction! [Stu claimed Kurita honor to forgo the Forced Withdrawal rules, and I agreed this was super-cool, so despite some lucky shots on my part that left his reinforced lance hurting, we played on!]
|Drunk, crazed, or both, Yandorak and his QKD-C jump into deadly close quarters!|
|Gallant Kurita Guillotine fights to the last! Honor was served!|
Will Nagumo first seek vengeance against Wagner's Legion (the mercs who deserted him)? or will he again try for the lostech cache, this time back on the EC's home planet of Dneiper?
While this chapter of the campaign draws to a close, the larger story remains unfinished!
Thanks to Stu for a great game!
