Club night last night for Infinity, and my vanilla ALEPH faced off against Heather's vanilla Haqqislam in preparation for the upcoming tourney. Army list codes will be presented after the BatRep.
The mission was Capture and Protect, in which there are two beacons (flags), and two consoles. You have to hack a console before you can steal a beacon. Points are awarded for hacking the consoles, holding the enemy beacon, and having your own beacon safe. Bonus points for having the enemy beacon in your DZ, and for completing your random secondary objective.
This was out deployment, Haqq on the left, ALEPH on the right. Haqqislam won initiative, and elected to go first, so I set up somewhat defensively, leaving only my ARO troops exposed (snipers and missiles). I also infiltrated one specialist as close to my console as I could.
I decide I'm simply going to ignore her.
Heather used a Command Token to clear Scarface's possessed state, then brought on a spitfire Ragik on my left flank, starting to slice the pie on the corner of the building after killing a Netrod. This results in an Alert ARO by the Sophotect and her bot, allowing the Proxy mk 2 to turn around and face this new threat.
The Ragik puts all his shots into the Sophotect, who fails her dodge, but makes all but one save, so she's now in NWI.
Moving further around the corner the Ragik takes fire from the combi Dakini and the missile armed Agema. He fails the roll against the Agema, but mostly survives the missile impact, going Dogged.
The Spitfire Ragik wounds the Proxy mk 2, who elects to fail guts and roll behind some better cover.
At the end of the day, on objective points, it's an overwhelming victory for ALEPH, ending 9-1 in my favour. We had a discussion after about what else could have been done, and whether or not an Alpha strike by the impersonator would have been effective against my force.
We also both had the same secondary objective (repair something with STR), but Heather failed because I killed Scarface before she could repair him, and I failed because my repeater bot was a freaking tank.
It was still a good game, and a learning experience for the mission and certain faction rules. Also a good demonstration of why repeater bots are so damn good if you've got WIP 15 hackers.
