Operation Sunrise Part II: Tanks for the Memories

This is the second mission in operation Sunrise. 

Location: Stein’s Folly- Along the Coastal Road

Weather: Moderate

Time of Day: Morning

Mission Briefing: The Capellan Confederation continues to advance across all fronts and while resistance is stiff,

The Federated Suns are losing ground. Sunset Company is being tasked with a dangerous mission-

as Capellan forces are stretched you are to slip through the lines and violently strike at one of their logistic centers.

We expect the centers to be relatively lightly guarded with second tier units, though the location is close enough

to the front lines that reinforcements may be nearby.

Primary Objective: Either eliminate the second tier defence forces, or eliminate both the supply depot/munitions manufacturing and the VTOL port.

Capellan Manticores defend the strategically important logistics center.

Sunset company advances in force, facing stiff resistance in the form of Manticores and VTOL.

Overall, casualties are light on both sides, but Sunset stay focused on the mission.

Sunset 4, AKA "Bags", the Jenner adrenaline junky raced behind enemy lines to attack the VTOL station; bringing it down with a final kick.

"R.L. Steiner" and "Slowdraw" took up Sunset's left flank, tying down much of the enemy armor and focusing on the primary facility.

Painting tiny little cars is fun.

"Bags", "Slowdraw", and "R.L. Steiner" take down both primary objectives and begin falling back to the dropship.
Meanwhile, Sunset 2 AKA "XXX" finally went down to a PPC headshot while tying down the entire right flank in Sunset's Banshee. Fortunately, the cockpit was shorn clean off so the Banshee will be back in operation! The same can sadly not be said about "XXX".

OUTCOME: Sunset company successfully eliminated both facilities before nearly successful extract. Sunset 2 KIA. No significant damage retained on mechs.

Tabletop Admiral MESBG Army Builder now Live!

Many of you who have frequented this blog and checked out some of my battle reports may have noticed just how nice my army lists looked! This is all thanks to Andrew, the developer of Tabletop Admiral. Many moons ago he worked on a modular system for his list builder and I volunteered to be the steward of the MESBG data- tirelessly click-clacking away to get your favorite profiles digitized! This builder is AWESOME. I've been using even the earliest alpha versions of it for well over a year and nothing else comes close. Love it to pieces! IF YOU COME ACROSS BUGS PLEASE E-MAIL ME DIRECTLY AT The text below the cut is from Andrew's original announcement on Reddit, and details how to use the builder!

The game room overhaul

After a few years, it was time for a total game room overhaul. I had the space trying to pull triple duty with a couch/TV space, my office, and the game room. Frankly, it was feeling too cramped, looking too cluttered, and the TV was barely seeing any use. So, with the support of my fiancee (6 weeks till the big day! It's a big part of what's been keeping me so busy, dear readers) I did a complete overhaul of the game room.

500 point tournament report with Rivendell

I was really excited to play in a 500 point tournament over the weekend! It was the second of four connected tournaments in the "To War!" escalation series hosted at Your Hobby Place in Fredericksburg, VA. My report from the first tournament can be found here, where my Rivendell forces took third overall!
