Combat Cards 9/6/11

We kicked off our newest Combat Cards league last Tuesday.  This time around we're playing 28mm Sci- Fi, with 24 point armies on 3'x3' or 4' x4' tables.  We are also playtesting the Personality Cards.  You can find out more about them at http://www.tacticalassaultgames.com/.

We had 7 players and three games going.  Dan took the bye so he could observe the games.

Mike and Todd squared off on the site of a crashed space ship.

The tabletop.  Mike fielded his Space Marines, and Todd brough his Necromunda Cawdor gang.

A Cawdor heavy hides amongst the twisted debris of the space ship.

Mike's Land Raider surveys the battlefield from a hill while Cawdor units move in for the kill.

Mike's Razorback is shook up by the Cawdor gunner.  Unfortunately the gunner doesn't see the Assault Marine screaming down on his position.

Crow and Mike Z. faced off in some Martian ruins.
The scene of the battle.  Crow is taking the field with AT43 Karmens, and Mike Z. is fielding AT43 Red Blok.

Gorillas in power armor flank Red Blok units.

A Red Blok soldier spots a karmen from his sniper position.

Units surround the ruin, but none dare venture inside...

I had the pleasure of facing off against Doug.  I dug out part of my old ruins.  The real dust and cobwebs really added to the feel of the game...

The battlefield.  Doug's Tyranids swarm through the ruins towards my Chaos Marines.

Chaos Terminators and a Land Raider prepare for bloody combat.

Doug's Gaunts begin their approach.  The Terminator lays down Bolter fire.

A Chaos terminator sneaks up on a confused Carnifex.  They both manage to escape with their lives!

Mike set a Combat Cards record; managing a win in a mere 7 minutes.  Losing a Behemoth on turn 1 in a 24 point game is not the way to win, Todd! :)

I managed to scrape out a victory at the last minute, and I'm not sure who won between Crow and Mike Z.

Needless to say the Personality Cards added a new level of tactics to the game.  I'm looking forward to the next game!
