Dropzone Commander 1500 pts UCM vs PHR

Scott and Scott played our first 1500pt game of DZC. We played on an urban board, and the mission was Recon. In this Mission, each building has a piece of "intel", which can only be claimed by troops. Once troops discover the intel, you roll a D6 to see if it becomes an objective, a victory point, or a trap!

The board in a calm before the storm.

Our token auto-wreck present on every DZC board

UCM Command BG: The Kodiak with a Condor, a squad of elite boots and their dropship, and four scout buggies.

The hammer in my hammer and anvil - 9 battle tanks in a large dropship.

Bog standard infantry group
The heavy support with four Gladius's? Gladii?

PHR command BG with four scout walkers and a pair of Type 2 heavies

The usual boots on the ground

Some walkers magnetized to their dropships

A large dropship of walkers and a semi-painted Athena

The UCM sprawl on to the board

What the mothership sees

Dropping off that precious cargo in to buildings!

PHR comes on to the board.

Taking cover in a destroyed building

Copter down!

Coming in for a strafing run!

Sometimes the easiest way to blow things up is just by leveling a building on top of them....

So many wrecked buildings....

We ended up calling the game at the end of turn 4 as PHR had no more troops left alive to discover objectives. This being our first game where we really brought out the heavy guns, we were suprised to see how easy it was to level buildings with troops inside them. I guess when you're in a city surrounded by demolishers, a building really isn't the safest place to hide!
