Operation Sunrise Part One: Planetfall

 Herein lies the official operation log of Sunset Company.

Buyer: The Federated Suns (Princess Lauriana Davion)
Mission 1- Planetfall

Location: Stein’s Folly- on the border of the Capellan Federation & Federated Suns territory

Weather: Moderate

Time of Day: Mid Day

Mission Briefing: The Capellan Federation has launched an attack across our borders once again. The Deep Space Listening station in polar-synchronous orbit has detected a large flotilla of drop-capable ships approaching Stein’s folly; an important border world for the Federated Suns.

I don’t know a thing about your merc company; and that probably means you’re not even worth knowing about. What you have, however, are mechs within immediate jump distance of Stein’s Folly; and your price is hilariously low. So, congratulations Sunset Company, you’re going into the meat grinder. Your job is to engage and slow elements of House Liao’s regular forces along the coastal road near Lollan until our reserves can arrive to hold the line.

Primary Objective: Engage and hold against the attackers for 7 turns. You will be outmatched, engage smartly.

Capellan Forces are spotted advancing along the coastal road.

They fan out, prepared to engage the Sunset defenders.

Sunset Company has only an understrength lance available to defend: an Awesome, a Highlander, and a Catapul. They put up a good fight as the Capellan forces relentlessly advance.

Capellan mechs gang up on the mighty Awesome.

Sunset receives word that Fedsuns reinforcements are on the way and they only need to hold out!

Sunset's Highlander is knocked down but before the Capellans can capitalize on their momentum, reinforcements arrive and the enemy withdraws.

OUTCOME: Sunset company successfully held against attacking elements of House Liao long enough for reinforcements to arrive and stabilize the front. No casualties taken.

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!

Mordor vs the Beornings LL in Destroy the Supplies at 650.

After my previous defeat at the hands of Connor's Dwarves , I was not looking forward to this matchup! The bears are, some of the boogeymen of MESBG and my "not-so-great" Beast was going to be no match for them! Here we go!

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.
