Force on Force: Battle Report: Kiwi SAS vs Insurgents

Hey Folks,

The other night I played my first game of Force on Force in a while. It was a pick up game on Andys super cool new printed terrain (he's printed everything, even the baseboard and it looks amazing! It's more scifi but all good for a third world zone as well) 

My Kiwis were D10 troop quality and D10 morale and rolled on the advanced medical table so were pretty damn tough. 

Andys Insurgents were D8/D8 so pretty good as far as insurgents go but quite weak as they died on anything but a "6" for the casualty role.

The 2*4 board. I have a three man team in full armour investigating the crashed police Van...

"No sign of the prisoner or guards - it looks like the insurgents hit the van and have freed their buddies"
"Contact!" - Insurgents with an RPG and PKM open up on the squad by the van and cause light wounds on them
A UAV- eye view of MORE insurgents moving to close the trap...
Meanwhile a SAS squad moves up to cover the Van
The Squad by the Van are pinned down and are badly injured but not out. The other SAS squad moves up to cover the. While the Sniper Team cover the approach and start to lay down hideously effective fire...
"Surprise!" an insurgent squad appear in the building across the road and hose the SAS squad by the containers knocking them all's not looking good...

Until some lucky Medical Table roles later and the support of the the other SAs squad on the bushes blows them all away.
In the end I had nailed 3 of Andys squads (out of 4) and while my Sniper team and the team by the Van were pinned in place and badly injured nobody had actually died yet so Andy would have had a tough time of it to try take the Van.

Cheers for the Game Andy! You needed maybe another squad (or Regulars!) or I needed one less said but it was still cool.

Terrain is AWESOME too!

Looks awesome guys! Sounds fun as well.
Welcome aboard Jas. ;-) What did you think of the mechanics of FoF?
That terrain looks great too. I think I have the matching Russian Police car btw.

Heya Adam,

Yeah FoF is pretty cool though we got a few things slightly wrong (as Im reading the rules now. Its probably on the high end of complex that my poor brain can handle. Im keen as mustard to try out Tomorrows War (just built and painted a Combat Robot) so will see how that goes...

And yes, Andy is ridiculous

aww shucks guys!
All you need is MIR-AUS unlimited ink supply and BOOM, terrain done!
It was fun Jas, I need to not be so hard on myself and get better troops! It would be good to see the tomorrows war points mechanics.
Your figures are looking great too, roll on the robots!
