Battle today on the edge of the desert, where fuel condensers operated by R.A.V.E Heavy Industries (RAVE-HI) were captured by an anti-SU group. There was two cells of so-called "Free Colonists" who apparently engaged each other and the Eidolon Company, who are currently under contract with RAVE-HI. Some of the battle was captured by a Free Colony reporter apparently attached to the "Harris Hi-Leg Free Company."

d6Ra d6Ra d8Ra d6Y d6Y d6W d6W d8Rr |Scrambler Mod "Jimmy"
d6Ra d6Ra d8Ra d6Y d6Y d6W d6W |Scrambler Mod "unknown"

The Revenants - Free Colony (Eric - addking) Defender
d6Rd d6Rd d6B d6Y d6Y d6W d6W d8Rr | WT-05 High Hand
d6Rd d6Rd d8Rd d6B d6B d6W d6W d8Rr |WT-04 Hi-Leg
d6Rd d6Rd d8Rd d6B d6B d6W d6W d8Rr |WT-04 Hi-Leg
d6Ra d6Ra d6B d6G d6W d6W |ST-02 Carronade

I lost the die roll to Jeremy, who forced me to drop a frame (I had a 2nd High-Hand with double yellow ready to go) which forced me to defense.

Round 1 [Doomsday 11] Eric 42, John 35, Jeremy 21
I whiff my opening shots on Jeremy's point frame, and decide to not move my Hi-Leg since he was near a station - this cost me the frame, as he took shots from every thing else on the field with range (3 artillery frames + 3 direct fire frames) so.... Eric 35, John 35, Jeremy 21, only I rolled the Doomsday down so..

Round 2 [Doomsday 9]
I start the round unloading on John's nearest frame and drop "the Sarge" down to 1dW. Jeremy claims my open station [Eric 28, John 35, Jeremy 24] while "Sasha" proceeds to
Ace Jeremy's Gunslinger with 6 hits at melee range... [Eric 28, John 35, Jeremy 21] In return, Jeremy focuses some direct fire and a d6Rr to take Sasha out [ Eric 28, John 30, Jeremy 21] while using his artillery to land a nice 2 damage hit on my High Hand.

Round 3 [Doomsday 6]
My High-Hand and Sarge fire their d6Rr 's at each other... and MISS. John hits my High Hand for 3 damage [down to 1d6W] and "Billy" removes the Axeman [ Eric 28, John 30, Jeremy 18]. I remove the Sarge's last white [Eric 28, John 25, Jeremy 18]

Round 4 [Doomsday 3]
Jeremy kills my High-Hand frame off moving the score ever closer [Eric 21, John 25, Jeremy 18], I try to peel Jeremy off my station and realize he won't drop fast enough.

Round 5 [Doomsday 1]
I put a weak shot on one of Jeremy's Hi-Legs guarding my 'old' station, and truck it for one of John's stations. Turns out I can't make it, but I detour close enough to drop a spot on "Billy". On the final die roll of the game, I fire and kill Billy for the win. [ Eric 21, John 20, Jeremy 18]

A win for me, after Jeremy has won our last couple go rounds was very nice. I haven't done reports for a while as I didn't have everyone's company sheets, and we had other 'new' players that were learning in those games. Looking forward to the next match!

This is a great battle report; concise, simple and easy to follow. And the opening paragraph was fantastic.

Kudos to the imbedded Free Colony reporter, they did a great job. :P Congrats on the win, and I hope we get to hear about your next match.

Thanks! We'll have to upgrade from camera-phone pics and add some photoshop to get to your level tho Pippi.

Also, we could have used a company shot each. We've done that in the past and it helps to visually sort out the teams. This time around, John and I both fielded some heavier blue colored frames vs Jeremy's red, which prolly makes it harder to follow. Also the 2 shots each round might be overkill.

Company shots would have been icing on this already great report cake. It's still easy enough to follow, especially if you're familiar with the the frames' makes. :D

And I think two shots per round is perfectly fine. But then, I like a lot of pictures in my reporting. :oops:

This is an excellent battle report and I love the shots of the dining room table. Great documentation of the action from turn to turn. Plus it's great to see so many Hi-Legs in one place.
