OPERATION SUNRISE PART III: Head of the Snake

Location: Stein’s Folly Second Moon- Near a military research facility


Weather: Vacuum

Time of Day: Evening

Mission Briefing: As the Capellan confederation continues to lay siege to Stein’s Folly, sunset is going to be sent to the second moon of the planet to strike hard at a Capellan special forces group that is ransacking a military facility for material and research. The unit is led by the infamous Farzad Rah’ael and we believe eliminating that pilot in his custom Battlemaster would be a significant hit to the Capellan’s morale. Sunset, you’re up!



Special rules: This mission takes place in vacuum, so all mechs automatically sink an additional 2 heat at the end of each turn. Further, the planet is in low gravity so all jump jets have their MP doubled- heat is 1 per 2 MP spent rounding up.


Primary Objective: Eliminate Farzad Rah’ael and withdraw


Farzad's unit on the moon.

Farzad is in his Battlemaster and along with him is a Hunchback and an Enforcer.

Elements of Sunset Company charge out of their dropship. Wolverine, "TP2" in the Griffin, "Swampass" in the Wolverine, and "S.O.S.J." in the Highlander.

Lots of jumping going on due to the lower gravity.

Initially, very little damage ocurred due to all of the jumping! TMMs were off the charts.

But the boys started mixing it up!

Farzad fell, took a wound, and fell unconscious. My dice. Ouch!

Mission accomplished via foot to the cockpit.

The boys spent some time mopping up the remaining mechs, but the Enforcer made it tough on them.



Eventually, the game was called. Sunset was successful, but did not completely wipe out the defenders. No casualties, and no significant damage to the mechs!

  3. The terrain is a mix from all sorts of places, but the really nice painted matte looking buildings are from Gale Force 9. The other stuff is terrain I've 3D printed. The mat comes from Deep Cut Studio- I had to get custom hexes on it but it was very reasonable!

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 NowForWrathBlog@gmail.com 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.

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.
