For Potus & Tas!

...and a tot of rum tastes so much better in coffee than tea!

My God, you Colonials - in tea, dear boy, in tea. The name for this fine beverage is called "Gun Fire" and it is traditionally still served on Xmas day to the troops by the officers and senior NCOs for breakfast. David (ex-Warrant Officer Class 1, in Her Majesty's army)

Scenario Teasers...

Postby POTUS » Mon Dec 28, 2009 1:06 pm

Scenario teasers...

So far we have United States, Brazillain, Martian, Italian, Russian joining a swag of British & German fleets....

Three rounds - scenario based. 400 CP fleets with minimum 5 ships required.

Scenario 1 – The Sniper
There is no mistaking the silhouette of a Martian Ship of War. On earth, captains need to get up close to confirm if an Aeronef is a friend or foe, because - as the Martians like to say – all Human Ships look alike! This particular Martian Ship was VERY recognisable. In contrast to other Martian Ships with their rusty hulls, this ship had a polished metallic skin. The dolphin stencilled on the side marked it as the flag ship of Lord T, Praetorian of the Olympian Martian Hegemony. Commissar Edovich smiled. “All ships target the dolphin.” He ordered. It was no wonder that his crew called him “The Sniper”...


Scenario 2 – Reconnaissance of Mato Grosso do Sul
Lowering his large naval telescope, Admiral ”Floppy” Bartel exhaled deeply. It appeared that all of the Aeronef vessels of Captain “Lucky” von Gruenherz’s renegade Brazilian squadron were in port. “Looks like intelligence got it wrong again,” Admiral Bartel thought to himself. There were supposed to be no vessels at all at the Mato Grosso do Sul naval base and this reconnaissance mission should have been uncontested. Smoke was coming out of the stack on every vessel. “Boilers are hot” the Admiral thought, ‘It won’t take them long to intercept”


Scenario 3 – The Louisiana Massacre
The US Court Martial Panel retired to consider their verdict leaving Captain Stacey “the Shadow” standing in the courtroom alone with his advocate and close order guard. One of the guards spoke up breaking the oppressive silence that fell over the courtroom. “It’s a sin that the brass have charged you, sir.” Another guard added.” Dropping some bombs on those Reb bastards should be no crime – they should give you a medal! Not your fault they had already surrendered.” Once again the courtroom fell into an awkward silence. At least the Shadow didn’t have to wait long for the verdict…or the sentence…

:D :D

Wrap Up

Postby POTUS » Fri Jan 01, 2010 3:16 am

Congratulations to Scott Bartel (Champion - winning all three games) and Karsten Zeidler (Runner Up).

Round three saw the only two undefeated players (Ed Corsar - Russian) and Scott Bartel (United States) face off - unfortunately with the Russians at a distinct disadvantage attacking on a bombing mission! The last round was also hard fought with a number of players in contention for runner up, Mitch Dovey (German) put up a valiant defense and despite destroying Karsten Zeidler's lighter units early in the game was unable to prevent Karsten's Brazilians from straffing the Land Ironclad ground target - giving Karsten second place on count back points.

It was great to see a mix of fleets and some great paint jobs. Of particular note were Karsten's colourful Brazillians and the kit bashing & Andreas Kammel's customised German gas cruisers and re-turreted Dreadnaughts.



Thank you to everyone who turned up for the day, participated or spectated. (Particularly the rookie players Michael Bornstein, Ed Corsar and Scott Bartel) The success of the day is all thanks to you.

Special thank you to Tony & Brigade Models for their support

Well Huzzah and Hurrah!
I was indeed thinking of you lads quite enviously last night :D

I've met Karsten a couple of times - please pass on a hearty congratulations from me.

Looking forward to meeting you lads once I'm settled in the new digs. 8)

PS Great pics of some lovely looking fleets!

Scenarios

Postby POTUS » Fri Jan 01, 2010 6:17 am

Here are the full scenarios used...

Scenario 1 – The Sniper
There is no mistaking the silhouette of a Martian Ship of War. On earth, captains need to get up close to confirm if an Aeronef is a friend or foe, because - as the Martians like to say – all Human Ships look alike! This particular Martian Ship was VERY recognisable. In contrast to other Martian Ships with their rusty hulls, this ship had a polished metallic skin. The dolphin stencilled on the side marked it as the flag ship of Lord T, Praetorian of the Olympian Martian Hegemony. Commissar Edovich smiled. “All ships target the dolphin.” He ordered. It was no wonder that his crew called him “The Sniper”...

Fleets start on opposite table edges with up to a maximum speed of 10 inches. Each player nominates one Aeronef as “Flag Ship”. In addition to the objective of destroying as many enemy ships as possible, the mission objective is to force the surrender or capture the enemy flagship. (Also refer to Ship Boarding & Ship Morale rules). Game ends when all ships from one fleet have been destroyed or if either “Flag Ship” has been captured, surrenders or is destroyed.

Flag Ship surrenders or is captured (but is not destroyed) +5 VP
Ships captured or destroyed - Class 1 ship +5 VP, Class 2 / Class 3 ship +3 VP, Class 4 / Class 5 ship +1 VP

Scenario 2 – Reconnaissance of Mato Grosso do Sul
Lowering his large naval telescope, Admiral ”Floppy” Bartel exhaled deeply. It appeared that all of the Aeronef vessels of Captain “Lucky” von Gruenherz’s renegade Brazilian squadron were in port. “Looks like intelligence got it wrong again,” Admiral Bartel thought to himself. There were supposed to be no vessels at all at the Mato Grosso do Sul naval base and this reconnaissance mission should have been uncontested. Smoke was coming out of the stack on every vessel. “Boilers are hot” the Admiral thought, ‘It won’t take them long to intercept”

Player with largest ship by points value is the defender. If both players largest ship is the same points value, players dice for attacker / defender. Attacker is conducting recon mission & defender is scrambling to intercept the invaders. Defender places 5 surface vessels in his half of the table – no surface vessel is to be placed within 12 inches of another surface vessel. Surface Vessels are considered to have Hull Damage Capacity of 7 and can be attacked as per bombing rules (Treat as landed Aeronef. Refer core rules for bombing, not optional rules) Defender then places all Aeronef on his half of the table. These Aeronef have landed (Refer to rules for take off / landing) Attacker’s Fleets starts on opposite table edge with maximum speed of 10 inches. To conduct successful recon, the attacker ship must circumnavigate the naval base with at least one Aeronef and escape from the table edge on which they entered. Game ends when all ships from one fleet have been destroyed, surrendered or have left the table.

Attacker completes Recon circumnavigation of the Naval Base + 5 VP
Each of the Defender’s Surface Vessels that survive +1 VP
Ships captured or destroyed - Class 1 ship +5 VP, Class 2 / Class 3 ship +3 VP, Class 4 / Class 5 ship +1 VP

Scenario 3 – The Louisiana Massacre
The US Court Martial Panel retired to consider their verdict leaving Captain Stacey “the Shadow” standing in the courtroom alone with his advocate and close order guard. One of the guards spoke up breaking the oppressive silence that fell over the courtroom. “It’s a sin that the brass have charged you, sir.” Another guard added.” Dropping some bombs on those Reb bastards should be no crime – they should give you a medal! Not your fault they had already surrendered.” Once again the courtroom fell into an awkward silence. At least the Shadow didn’t have to wait long for the verdict…or the sentence…

Player with largest ship by points value is the defender. If both players largest ship is the same points value, players dice for attacker / defender. Defender chooses to place either 1 x Land Ironclad (Treat as landed Aeronef Hull Damage Capacity 8) or 3 x Contraptions (Damage Capacity 3) or 12 Infantry / Cavalry stands (Damage Capacity 1) and places them in his half of the table with more than 12 inches between each item and to the edges of the board. (Treat Land Ironclad as a landed Aeronef. Refer to core rules for bombing, not optional rules) Fleets start on opposite table edges with maximum speed of 10 inches. Game ends when all ships from one fleet have been destroyed, surrendered or have left the table. Ships may leave the table without penalty when all military targets on one side have been bombed (regardless of damage)

Attacker destroys Land Ironclad +12 VP
Each Contraption destroyed by attacker +4 VP
Each Infantry / Cavalry Stand destroyed by attacker +1VP
100% Military Assets survive, defender receives +12VP
50% Military Assets survive, defender receives +4
Ships captured or destroyed - Class 1 ship +5 VP, Class 2 / Class 3 ship +3 VP, Class 4 / Class 5 ship +1 VP

Scenario Teasers..........

************************************************************

Scenario 1 – Prize in the Fog
Admiral Spivak realised that the entire fate of his entire Baltic Fleet rested on the shoulders of the 14 year old rating in the crow’s nest. With visibility reduced to 100 yards, it was quite possible that Japanese Fleet under the command of Kaigun Taishō Floppy-San had passed unseen. Closing his eyes, Admiral Spivak listened intently to the thrum of the reciprocating steam engine of his Flag Ship, the Petropavlavsk. A frown creased his forehead when at first he thought he heard an echo reflecting from the fog. Snapping his eyes open, the Admiral ordered “All guns bearing starboard – FIRE” just as the Japanese Flagship Mikasa emerged from the mist....

Scenario 2 – Mount Merapi Volcano
Overseeing the ships stores being loaded onto the Turkish Battle Cruiser, Yavuz Sultan Selim the Quartermaster had a pretty good idea about the destination of their “secret mission”. New issue of tropical white uniforms and ample provisions for the ship’s company clearly meant that the ship was sailing south. Double issue of munitions and coal meant that they were sailing to unfriendly waters and unlikely to be resupplied en-route. What the Quartermaster could not understand is what the Gas Masks and extra Asbestos sheeting was for.

Scenario 3 – Dogger Bank
The Baron’s command pennant flew high from the mast of the SMS Seydlitz and the crew’s morale was buoyed by the successful raid to shell Scarborough on the British East Coast. Steaming hard for home, the Baron’s fleet was met by a British Interception fleet at Dogger Bank. The slow old armoured cruiser SMS Blücher was the first to be overtaken by the faster British Cruisers, presenting the Baron with the difficult choice – flee for the safety of home waters or turn and fight....
