Second Gruntz Game

The Defense of Garmin Farm on Tau Ceti IV

Initial T-800 Deployment
Terminator Objective: Kill all Humans!

Initial Deployment of FedArms Forces
Objective: Defend the Farm

First turn: Terminators advance. 
Taken under fire by Havelock suit and mortar, killing two.

Brave FedArms troopers advance and fire - to little effect.
 In return, T-800s cause three critical damages to the armoured car with only one hit.

Armoured Car pops smoke canisters to protect itself 
from the T-800s lurking by the bridge.
Sheep in foreground.

Armoured Car Brews Up under intense fire on the FedArms right; 
one squad of infantry also wiped out in a single turn on the flank by concentrated
fire from 40W phased plasma rifles.

   In the end, the Terminators were again defeated. It was much closer this time. I lost an entire sad of infantry in one blaze of plasma fire, and half of another, plus my armoured car blown to bits. My infantry rifles just can't do much to them at long range. Area of effect was far less powerful in this game, as the T-800s were spread more widely and we used the 2" diameter, not radius, like we should have done the first time (my bad). Also, the fusillade of fire that each T-800 now produces is really scary. You want to fight Termies? Use heavy weapons. It was luck that the rifles and SAWs took down any. May need to upgrade with some missile teams in place of SAWs.

45 long slide with laser sighting, Phase Plasma Rifle in 40 Watt range, Uzi 9mm

M2HB, MK19, M203 should be able to take down terminators

RSM Cox said...

60mm and 81mm mortars should definetly stop them

Wrong franchise but
"...take off and nuke them from orbit. It's the only way to be sure."

Nice AAR :)

Love the board. Nice pastoral setting.

Thanks all.

And yes, I very specifically made them 40W Phased Plasma rifles. No Uzi 9 millimeter.
