Alpha Strike!

Kurita vs. Davion, bringing all IS units that have been finished so far

Best mate and myself have enjoyed our first game of Alpha Strike today. We love it. We already like CBT very much but this is just awesome. Alpha Strike enables us to play with large quantities of Mechs (even in our bigger scale) without too much book keeping.

We brought all units that I had painted up so far, in total 135 vs 136 points.

Kurita:

Kanazuchi Battle Armor
Locust
Stinger
Wasp
Mongoose
Hatamoto Chi
Dragon
Archer
Scorpion
Rifleman
Longbow
Warhammer
Atlas

Davion:

Stinger
Raven
Locust
Wasp
Banshee
Zeus
Archer
Crusader
Goliath
Warhammer
Longbow
Rifleman

  
After two or so rounds: both sides closing in on each other
Davion's Raven spotting for Longbow indirect LRM attack: my Kurita Locust gets a shower of high explosive love :-(
My Warhammer gets if from all sides. Banshee, Goliath and a recon lance pounding it with fire.
Zeus and Warhammer get into position to await my Atlas' assault on the center frontline.
A Davion Stinger jumped over the building in an attempt to kill the Whammy (one inner structure point remaining) but missed its shot! My Warhammer returns the favour and blasts it to pieces.
My attempt to stop the LRM fire attacks of the Crusader end with my recon Locust being shot to a burning wreck.
My assault and heavy mechs keep up the pressure, steadily advancing.
The city turns into a scrapyard: my Rifleman gets shot by the Banshee but in turn headshots (rolled 12 on critical hits!) the Zeus :-)  A little later the Banshee gets wasted by the Atlas.
Having taken out the Banshee and Zeus on the right flank, my center force is backed up by Hatamoto and Atlas. Ready to steam roller attack the Davions.
Kanazuchi Battle Armor got casualties by Raven fire and is wiped out by Crusader missile strike.
The Atlas walks through the Davion line and leaves behind burning hulks of twisted metal. My Archer got missile bombed by Longbow and Crusader and killed with the final shot: by a Locust!
The game ended with a Kurita victory. Last Mechs standing on my side: Atlas (nearly fresh), Longbow (heavily dented), Warhammer (only held together by sheer willpower), Stinger (only one point of structure). Mechs on Davion side still standing: none.

Can't wait for the next weekend for another match!

Great to finally see them in action... Maybe i should get back into Battletech, but in this proper scale!

Amazing Battletech Setup. That looks like one real big badass fight there!

Great stuff!
