I used the starter scenario in the box set for this one - just make it 'official' with point and BP listings. Quick play - enjoy!
Aircraft have spotted a group of tripods skirting the main battle. An adhoc force is sent to slow them down.
Table: 4x6' Long edge, running North to South. Turns: 6. Terrain: on the midline one farmhouse and (2) Lt. Woods on either side (seperated by standard 4"). Weather:Clear Victory: Mars; get one tripod off South edge. USA: don't let any tripod off the South edge. Setup: Martians enter North edge; USA enters South edge.
MARS: (3) Assault Tripods @600 + FC @ 30 = 3 Units @630 points in 3 Units = BP 2 [3 order tokens] At 50% = 315 Break Point
USA: (1) Mk II tank platoon: (3) Mk II tanks @165 = 1 Unit @165pts (1) Mk III tank platoon: (3) Mk III @225pts = 1 Unit @225pts (2) Infantry Squads: (15) figures ec @ 30 ec + FC @30 = 2 Units @90pts [FC is part of infantry squad] (1) Rough Rider Squad: (6) figures @45 = 1 Unit @45pts (1) MG Squad: (3) MG + 9 crew @40 = 1 Unit @40pts
USA Total = 565 points in 6 Units = BP 3 [2 order tokens] FC is basically the infantry squad commander using flare guns and flag signals. At 50% = 283 Break Point
If you'd like to 'up' the year to 1914/1915 there would be more MkIII available - change becomes (2) Mk III tank platoons: ec (3) Mk III @225 ec = 2 Units @450pts. USA Total = 625 points in 6 Units = BP 3 [3 order tokens]. At 50% = 313 Break Point. This might be a fairer fight.
A final alternative is to add in a random fog with roll for lifting (see my weather rules) and/or allow the USA player to secretly place an Ambush or two in the woods/building. You may also consider having the USA player Start on the midline among the woods and buildings. Again, in the hopes of a better game. Enjoy!
boxholder: I don't know. If this is supposed to be a chat-type thing, I don't see how it gets to that. There does not appear to be any way to tell someone that you are waiting or find someone on line. It takes a fortuitous discovery that both are on-site together.
