Dindrenzi vs directorate 6k - very funny, very frustrating

Recommended Posts

Okay so myself playing Dindren, against rosses cooperate scum.... I mean directorate ...

6k game, 75 TV , objectives at 20/10/3 ( every thing a touch lower to speed things up ... Didn't help lol... You'll see why)

So here is set up, terrain, sd's, recon, and force lists, white dice markers are directorate artillery, green are Dindren drops

TURN 1

First activation to the Dindren, angel moves forward murders a light and zeros a drop marker.

Directorate respond with failing to hurt my eris via heavy helix heavy

Dropping in a lev the Dindren badly hurt 2 squads of lights. Mean while over the other side of the table, the tank destroyers hunker down and completely melt an eris... Ouch. That plasma

https://www.dropbox.com/s/kldc8jw9qt0e0vx/2015-12-06%2012.18.52.jpg?raw=1

2nd angel springs into action again picking on my opponents scoring units ... Sensing a theme yet, well Ross did and as an activation hides his remaining light.

https://www.dropbox.com/s/okyqo0rky0iea6a/2015-12-06%2012.22.11.jpg?Raw=1

... Not good enough, dropping the 2nd lev, sees the death of them, ruthless Dindren way, zero in an sd on the way, cyber tanks try to meet the lev and fail. My lights drop in to take the secondary.. Efficient plan...

https://www.dropbox.com/s/f2qkncawg96xpw6/2015-12-06%2012.31.53.jpg?Raw=1

Now on to my plan Ross decides to start getting his scoring units towards objectives, I can't have that, activating the gunships I put the hurt into his transport he kindly moved closer.

https://www.dropbox.com/s/tyyi190f64eryww/2015-12-06%2012.38.21.jpg?Raw=1

Ross moved forward another transport, my kratos annihilated the other and all but one infantry base... Good attack..

https://www.dropbox.com/s/oiku5kbtk8l17pv/2015-12-06%2012.43.48.jpg?Raw=1

Cyber tanks in the centre of the board, move forward and irritate my angel, on the complete opposite side I attempt to hide my lights ...

2 boring activations of mediums moving around...

https://www.dropbox.com/s/dhl7z30sutc85wc/2015-12-06%2012.51.27.jpg?Raw=1

2 more fairly un eventful activations. A move from directorate core heavy and a move from the second eris squad, I'm starting to collapse my forces away from the right hand side. Took a lucky pot shot and damaged a td

https://www.dropbox.com/s/imzxoj07yr327xs/2015-12-06%2012.54.09.jpg?Raw=1

https://www.dropbox.com/s/k0hkdvl5og44aft/2015-12-06%2012.56.42.jpg?Raw=1

Next activation, was the new directorate command vehicle it hit the eris hard with cyber and burnt a hole in my angel. Very very lucky for me 2 arti completely missed my letos... That was certainly a clenched butt cheeks moment. ...

https://www.dropbox.com/s/euf253ezckg36rp/2015-12-06%2013.06.08.jpg?Raw=1

Determined to completely cripple his scoring units I use my other aerial unit to crush his transport... I have a plan.. I stick to it...( you wait I eat those words later). Very much aware of my plan now Ross scrambles his heavy infantry wisely towards the building... Everyone loves a cover save ...

Okay so because I'm heavily out activated, the rest of the turn is directorate dominated.

First the rank destroyers take a pop at my lev and do nada, then the heavy heavy at my flyers again doing nothing, I sigh relief. The flyers spend the rest of the turn pummelling my lights, by some miracle they survive ! HORAY for capture game ...

TURN 2

A very smart move by the directorate played the tac that boosts cyber. ... Using that managed to shut down a lev... Big first activation play. The command unit went on to do a second damage to an angel and fortunately miss arti on my lights.

https://www.dropbox.com/s/tacu02emt69dg1o/2015-12-06%2013.47.54.jpg?Raw=1

I proceeded to pile as many shots into the heavy infantry with my lev as possible killing half of them. ( failing my target lock) , they then scuttled into the building ... Damn cyborgs. I proceeded to over watch my leviathan letos

https://www.dropbox.com/s/mrc5uv6iq8n8538/2015-12-06%2013.58.09.jpg?Raw=1

The directorate realising that most of their scoring units were dead switched to a kill game, badly battering my kratos which proceeded to fail the rest of their hp in disorder ... Ouch.. Lol.

Not one to change a plan I piled rockets into the building with my damaged angel. It went well I killed a robot.

The directorate gunships rock up and wipe out the Leto tanks on the right hand side ... Then my 2nd angel fails to kill any more cyborgs.. My capture game takes a hit ... So sad about disappointing it's commander the angel fell off its base ...

https://www.dropbox.com/s/mrbga5e12zsxw87/2015-12-06%2014.15.55.jpg?Raw=1

Finding his feet and deciding on a kill game the directorate commander starts laying into my core units killing an eris and and damaging another. Attempting to counter this I lay into his light flyers with cqb and shots. I kill 2 good result

Next the set of gunships they essentially end a medium squad. .. Ouch , but the lucky retaliation of my other gunships badly damage them in return. Then the forlorn eris gets its own back and manages to finish the gunships. ( after a heavy helix heavy from the directorate does very little) Hazah!

Directorate td's are slightly more effective doing huge damage to the gunships, ouch.

My poor army is falling apart.. Need that final kill and objective. My eris try to hurt the small flyers and are fairly ineffective. The next heavy helix heavy is slightly more effective ... Finishing my gunship.

... This... This is where my woes begin. I'm going to list the rest of the second turn. It was too painful to describe. ... I whined, I whined about my luck and cursed the dice gods... Horrendous

- I drop a pod , I storm the 2 lonely cyborgs I fail ...

- the td's hurt my lev

- I drop another pod .... They bounce off of one cyborg.... Sigh...

- cyber tanks start to murder my disordered troops.

- I drop a third pod, finally kill the bugger, but he take a nyx with him....

- at least they kill a cyber tank with their shots...

- mediums kill my rsn robot

- core heavy murders troops.... Bad last activation ...

TURN 3

Directorate take first turn an start to attempt to deny the Dindren getting valuable TV.. Ah that's right Dindren was on 13. Then the directorate small aerial escape bringing the Dindren down to 10.. The exact amount of a secondary... That will be important later.... Anyway. First couple of activations saw both Dindren legs lay into and kill the direct command ... However drones were still alive .... No TV for me ... At the same time the remaining direct aerial obliterated the last of the eris and artillery blast my poor mid objective nyx to pieces .... That's what arti is for !

I take some casual shots at the cyber tanks feeling smug. Giving the old good game mate chat ... I'm not even bothered the directorate pile every last activation into killing a lev, the commander for the letos .... Yea you see where this is going now .... Yup that's right ... 2 successes on 4 dice for a command check ... Nope! Disaster ... I needed 10 points to win .. That objective. 10 points ... Disordered lights .... Not scoring .... My god did I nerd rage... Ahahah

TURN 4

So turn for was just Dindren protecting the light on the objective and trying not to give away 6 TV.

So I'll simply put up the pics it was a fairly in eventful turn one pod died the directorate troops scored 3 for the objective and my letos FINALLY.... Score their 10. Lol sigh of relief. Though highly frustrating was a brilliant, brilliant game. Final score Dindren 0, direct 2

Totally I love a close game like, most of our group have exceptionally close games, though you know that already you read my bat reps ... Except the terrans directorate game ... Ross obliterated that guy, but he played poorly so meh lol.

We have the following in our group.

Ross - plays directorate

Myself - lizards/Dindren/directorate/terrans(mine are the red ones)

Dan - relth/aquans

Rob - spiders only

Alfie - Dindren / terrans(blue terrans)

Andy - aquans (beautifully painted blue ones)

Lawrence - plays terrans green ones, not really a regular

Jamie - plays directorate ( kinda blue bright) again not a huge regular

Scott - sorylian not regular

So yea there's a few of us all different forces playing since it started. It's a great bunch. :)
