Default Quad attack! CBT batrep with pics 10/24/09

Among the many games i got yesterday i also got in a CBT game. finally got my quads on the table.

IN this battle i was up against a
.templar tancred
.marauder 5R
.awsome 9Q
.jagermech F



I was running
.sirocco 3c
.goliath 4S
.barghest 3T
.blue flame



Things started out well enough, i managed to hit with my auto-cannons on the sirroco without jamming them. i had managed to isolate the awsome 9Q and was doing some good damage to it. his jager and marauder were trying to get around behind me but soon turned around to supppport the templar and awsome since i had moved around the plateu.

The the game made a left turn for me...two 5 point head hits and a crit, pilot killed my nearly undamaged barghest. i did heavy damage to the awsome, eventually blowing off it's leg and ignoring it, then i focused on the templar......i failed so many crit rolls all i needed was a single (3rd) engine hit to take it out, but unlike my opponant i was spreading damage all across his mech while he hit me consistantly in the torsos even though i have 4 heavily armored legs. :P

The goliath suffered from this being engine killed and then cored. the ble flame and sirocco managed a bit better as he started spreading out the damage. near the end of the game my sirocco finally jammed one autocannon, and the failed shutdown avoid left me a sitting duck.
I would gladly give up a few medium lasers for a bit more heat disipation on this thing.

Not to miss the opportunity the davions ganged up on him,

The heavy armored beast that he is the sirocco managed to survive a couple more rounds with nearly every point or armor shaved off his hide.

The sirocco eventually fell to engine kill and the game was over.

both the templar and the awsome are going to be spending a fair bit of time in the repair bays, loosing the barghest so early was the real turning point in the game i never recovered from.

Sounds like you need to demo it and get people interested.
key selling points-
.well written rules
.cheap start up cost-low model count, less to buy, less to paint and assemble.
.lots of variety and fluff background.
