Wow, what a deployment phase we had. My opponent deployed first and rolled for two inferior infiltration grunts which he passed both. I rolled 5 Daylami and didn't hit a single roll. Good thing they have panzerfausts.
Ariadna on the move! Moving up both flanks with Mavericks and Galwegian doing LOTs of damage. Taking out my Djanbazan, Doctor, Hunzakut and revealing my Ayyar!
with the mine in place my Ragik pops around the corner with Spit fire to force an aro where the mine will trigger! fllllllaaaamm! Takes out the Lieutenant but not Dr Fire axe!
With his 2nd turn in loss of Lieutenant I was pretty confident all my bad rolls were evened out by this. The Ariadnans' proceeded to position themselves for their last turn, and with impressive aptitude.
-----5 kilometers Outside Aplekton-----
"Holy Mary mother,,,nooo! We can't get a break team! Ariadnans on the offensive agianst Alpeh and we are right in the middle..."
"ahh yes sir they are closing in ..screaming fast sir with Mavericks to boot."
"Dammit , our Daylami don't even have time to get into forward positions. Ok everyone, defensive pattern Delta ! go.....NOW!"
With the Genearl Husker's 15th team positioned for Diplomatic purposes near Aplekton, it has been twice now they were caught in the middle. As devout to the cause as Husker himself they will not falter, they will not flee. Keeping the diplomacy for this means to keep the intel away from the Ariadnans for now. It will be easier to discuss with them the intel in our hands rather then their hot headedness get in the way of peace.
"Well that didn't pan out the best.."
"Not the worst either, luckily they only extracted informaiton on where we were planning our next move, which we can easily remedy..It's almost time to leave, this place has gotten out of hand with the arrival of Aleph.. We need or own info on the ongoing problems with the Saladin rumors.. I will brief the Commander immediately." Get back to the ship and rendevous at Duban."
