Syrtis Major Royal Naval Air Squadron
1 x Reliant class aerial cruiser escorted by
1 x Dauntless and 1 x Aphid gunboats
Oenetrian Allied Fleet
2 x Whisperdeath large kites
2 x Hull cutters
1 x Skyfire Screw Galley
|The British formation manoeuvres to windward to maintain the range|
|The allied Martian fleet deploys|
|The Reliant and Dauntless catch a Martian Kite and take her under heavy fire|
|The Martians move upwind to close the range|
|The engagement becomes general|
|A long range Martian shot cripples the Reliant's lift mechanism, and her escorts scramble to screen her|
|Martian Screw Galleys break through the British escorts and grapple with the Dauntless|
|Swarmed by the combined enemy crews, the British Marines and sailors fight valiantly but futilely|
And so the Oenotrian Fleet gained a decisive Victory over their hated British foes, but they would soon learn that the resolve of the Earthman was not so easily broken...
I didn't realize cloudships of mars used maps with so few hexes. I guess the movement ranges are short?
Top stuff. Nice scratch built ships.
Top stuff Paul, good AAR of a good looking game. I like Your miniatures.
Thank you all, it was indeed fun!
Dave - worked well for squadron actions (max move was 6, max range was 8 for the 6" mount) but I can see it might be a bit cramped for bigger fleet actions
I cant believe I missed seeing this - what a wonderful looking game and the models are fantastic! Please pass on my congratulations to Andrew for his amazing work and I would love to get some good close ups of the models.
All the best,
Beautiful presentation! How did you make such even hexes?
Wow great table an miniatures!
glad the old link to White Wine Sauce I dug up worked, nice report and action. I have taken interest in hex-based movement recently, albeit with a lot more water involved in the process.
