I take it we're still using starter forces at the weekend?

Yes! Until you all have a few more bits. How many points are you at now Matt?

Maybe 1000 point target for you all?

Assuming I've worked things out right, 1000 points once I've got everything put together. Needs painting now!

I'm a little way off 1000 points without borrowing or proxying at the moment. And I wouldn't want to use my army without a third Lifthawk - either the Alexander or the Hannibals would be almost useless without transport.

I also need another unit.

Matt!

Unless I misunderstood you earlier, the rules for Gharial tank are still available on the Hawk Wargames site, here http://www.hawkwargames.com/blogs/experimental-rules, with a direct link here https://cdn.shopify.com/s/files/1/0159/4298/files/Shaltari_Gharial_-_Experimental_Rules_1.pdf?13986696893193853789.

The ship reference sheets I was talking about are here http://fragged.info/2014/02/dzc-reference-sheets/ and some others with pictures are here http://www.hawkforum.co.uk/viewtopic.php?f=10&t=5743 (just scroll down a bit).

Might be useful, I don't know how accurate they are.

My 1000 points almost certainly has too many gates, so I'll want to replace some of them later.

You did. What I was saying was that rules for the stuff in the Reconquest book aren't on the site any more, but they used to be. The Gharial is newer so its rules are sti there.

Thanks for the other link though, I'll have a look.

According to Pete, you benefitted from not doing the CQB correctly. Therefore game void and you still haven't won a game.

You suck!

What CQB?

It's that thing you kept avoiding by beaming away after finding intel. Don't know why you ran away though, what with your Braves being immune to damage in CQB and falling masonry. It's good that you've got these little extra rules on your infantry - it's not like you've got any cheaty extra rules elsewhere in your army...oh, wait...

I think the main issue last night was too many buildings. The scenario states 5-10 and we used 12. Too many buildings meant we could totalyy ignore each other for the most part. We should play it again and roll a d10 for the number of buildings.

Playing it with 5 buildings would have been much more interesting!

Says the man with the biggest guns...

I think it was different for you as you were surrounded by medium and large buildings, so they were almost like a barrier. Searching small buildings is significantly more hairy. I'd keep the same number of buildings but reduce their size.

Starter set points values:

Cheatari - 579
PHR - 514
Resistance - 552
Scourge - 541
UCM - 557

Therefore, Matt cheated. Game void.

Dunno. We can pick on the day! We could do a couple if we don't have to wait for The Twiddler...

Pete! Can you do 1300 points? I can do 1298 now with out being silly (I'm still only taking one commander).

I've got Valkyries (jet pack infantry), Janus scout walkers (scouts with AA guns) and a Medusa (woman who floats around on balls). Arranged to play Pete on Thursday.
