The British North African Forces have several staging areas in native towns all over North Africa. They generally have small local forces along with a garrison of British forces, they are storage areas for the building up of supplies so they are ready for a big push to destroy Martian holdfasts in North Africa.
The British garrison ready for inspection. The vehicles all parked at the back are awaiting crews which are due to arrive over the next few days.
Bedouin camel scouts are racing back to the fort.
They have come to warn that the Martian are advancing quickly and are nearly upon the town. The bedouin have also informed one of the columns bringing crew for the vehicles and they are making all speed toward s the town.
The British and bedouin forces quickly deploy. The first support column arrives and they quickly deploy their guns and armoured cars while the trucks race the crews to the vehicles.
Great looking table setup, Q. Very evocative of North Africa. And the scenario sounds great, using some troops that don't get a lot of attention. All very Beau Geste. Hopefully with a better outcome for the defenders.
Great look, well constructed table by the way. Love the use of the Old Glory crusader style fort for a main rally point and the various Military Building Authority buildings. Looking forward to this one as well. Gads, so many cool vehicles; love the trucks! And the backdrop is perfect - I've looked at several of those over the years at the local Petco store in the fish department. With the recent addition of reptiles to their line, am hoping for a sandy desert one at some point.
The Trucks continue to race out of the martian path. Everything fires causing a damage to assault tripods along with a weapons damage and another one with movement problems. Two drones are also destroyed.
Turn 2 - Martian
Reinforcements arrives. 1st wave move then fire. Rolls for damaged movement and weapons are all won. Some cavalry and MG teams are destroyed. The drones manage to destroy all of the mono Tanks
All move and fire. Rolls for damaged movement and weapons are all won again. Another MG team is killed along with 2 armoured cars and 4 stands of Scots guards. The dominator tripod manages to kill 2 trucks loaded with crewmen. All move again
