It was a newly discovered Earth-type planet whose soil was very compatible to growing Earth-style crops. It was a find to be claimed by the strongest. But who would that be — the Draconis Combine or the Federated Suns?
We used the mech forces raised by Sean P. The rules were “Battle Tech – Alpha Strike” which are a simplified variant of the standard Battle Tech rules. We like them because they play quicker and are easier to recall from one game to another over a period of months between the two games.
Each nation-state sent a veteran combat company to claim the planet for their own. Let the battle begin!
In the first game, the four players each had a platoon of four mechs. In the second game each had a half-company of six mechs.
A fun time was had by all even though the Federated commanders couldn’t roll hits worth a hoot. If they needed an 8 or better to hit, then they rolled a 7. The dice just weren’t in their favor.
