First Video Battle Report (Pe Vs. Kob) - German

Recommended Posts

Hi,

here the first battle report of our second game. We played 182 P PE against 180 P KOB.

If I have some time I will try to translate the game in a few words later.

@Lokhagos: Come and visit Wiesbaden ^^

 

Ok I try to write something about the game. The "on the right" and "on the left" means always the side of the KOB or PE player.

Prussian:
One Section (6 grenadiers and one medic) with the Lieutenant on the left side.
Then two teutonic knights, behind them the professor with his minion.
On the right side a section of two Kettenkarre (next time I play each Kettenkarre as one section)
followed by another section grenadiers (6 grenadiers) with one specialist and a medic and a sergeant.

KOB:
On the right side a section of KOB infantry with the KOB Character Smethington, then the four sky hussars, another section of infantry with the lieutenant and the two tankettes as one section.

First Turn:
I win the starting roll and decide that I (PE) will begin. First activation of the kettenkarre. Both moved 8" and fired in long distance against the section of KOB in the middle of
the table. I only killed two infantry. The KOB activation are the sky hussars. They fly behind the building. The PE activates the left section of infantry. They move forward and fired to the sky hussars taking two down (only 5 & 6 are hitting). The KOB made a mistake in the order of the cards, the infantry on his left side activates before his character smithington, they moved forward and fired on my left infantry taking out one model. The Tankette fired against my kettenkarre but not enough successes to get over the AR (2 x 3 blue dice and one the first throw one success in the second no success, luck for PE). One thing I forgot, was that the sky hussars have no cover because they are flying. I moved my Teutonic Knights but does not fire on the sky hussars. The professor  and my right section moves forward.

Second Turn:
The mistake of not taking out the sky hussars is hard, because the KOB player was lucky with 10 successes of the Sky Hussars (Flamethrower are EVIL). The Moral Test failed and my left section goes to the ground. The normal MG of the Kettenkarre can not make damage on Ironclads, BUT with the Bullet card I get 5 black dice for the Kettenkarre and I fired against the tankette with 4 successes, so I can roll a D6 on the damage table . . . . freaking ONE. That means one shaken marker for the section of the two Tanketten. My left section gets a second shaken marker. The Teutonic Knights killed the two sky hussars. Then I was lucky, because I have the "eins,zwei" card on my hand. With a nice 5 on the dice I can walk 11" behind the house taking the infantry section of the kob under fire killing 3 guys.

Third Turn:
The left KOB section fired and killed 5 infantry models of my right section (I say it again flamethrower are EVIL, where is the water ?). I got a shaken marker (which I remove with a card of my deck later). My right section shootes back and kill one KOB infantry man. The tanketten section failed the test with the shaken marker and get a second one. The Professor tried to make damage on the tanketten and failed. The tankette killed one Kettenkarre (because of a wrong interpretation of the rules, the both tankettes had (as one section) a second failed Moral CA Test, see question in the Rules board). The other Kettenkarre made a successfull Moral Test (because 50% of the section was killed), and killed one or two of the KOB infantry on my left. My left infantry got successes in the moral Test and the 2 shaken marker are away and they can kill another infantry member of KOB.

Fourth Turn:
The professor turn - a lot of red 6s in a row (see video), and one Tankette was destoyed - 5 on the damage table. My infantry on the right taking out the last two KOB infantry. The Kettenkarre and Teutonic Knight killed the KOB infantry on my left side.

We decided to end the game here (was to late for checking out the victory points), but it was obviously that the PE won the game.

It made a lot of fun. I hope I can play soon another game. We have player with the other fractions (but they have no time at the moment),so I hope to play against them as soon as possible.

I hope you understand my battle report. My english lessons dates back several years.

 

Like my first game, this game is great. The possilbilty to do something one after another makes it interessting. The cards can help to absorb the problems if your activation order does not work as planed (little bit like RoboRally). You can throw a LOT OF DICE, I love throwing dice  :wub:

The only thing at the moment is that it is really necessary to get a better rule book. It is very confusing especially the moral Tests and the book is not very clearly arranged. If you search something about the Ironclads you have to take care of every side. It makes in my opinion more sense to put these information into one part.

I hope Spartan will throw out the other fractions because a lot of player are waiting for their DW Fraction to play. This would raise the number of players and the possibilty for some nice games.

Greetings Piper

Nice, thank you for the vidéos even I don't understand 9/10th of what you are saying. It gives a bit of visual of a game that I didn't have visual yet (and I am visual).

And Holy ****, nice paint job both on all models... they're fantastic! :)

Thanks for posting this! :D

 

I'll admit I struggled a bit with the German to start with [... being a typical British luddite when it comes to foreign languages, I'm afraid it took a while for me to remember my schooling....], but I really appreciate you making this vid for us all!

 

I hope you might post others too in time!!

 

Cheers again!

Delboy

 

ps..... I'm super-jealous looking at your fantastic paint-jobs and sharp looking terrain too..... <sigh>..... ;)

NIce batrep - I do not speak German at all but I could still follow what was happening.

 

Great models on both sides - I have been trying to resist Dystopian Legions (due to spending restrictions) but both the Tankette and the Kettenkarre look good enough to persuade me to start ......
