One and Done

Last game of the 150 point Highly Classified night. We ended up playing 4 games in about 2ish hours, just trying to playtest Highly Classified for Rose City Raid 5. It’s 150 points on a 4×4 table, which is a big deal. See game 3 if you want to go back in time:

Overview

  • Mission: ITS14 Highly Classified
    • Capture
    • HVT: Kidnapping
    • Net Undermine
    • Telemetry
  • Forces: Neoterran Capitaline Army versus Combined Army (150)
    • NCA: Extreme Prejudice
    • Combined Army: ??
  • Deploy First: Neoterran Capitaline Army
  • First Turn: Neoterran Capitaline Army

I’ve wanted to play my NCA for awhile, and just blitzing through a 150 point game sounded fun. If you’re not taking the Bolt MSR, you’re doing it wrong. THe rest of the list is just orders and stuff to do objectives. I included a Peacemaker spitfire because we had been talking about it in the Discord.

Deployment

We ended up with the same deployment scenario as the Bakunin game earlier:

I did much the same deployment, stacking all my stuff in the triangular region at the center of my deployment zone, with the Peacemaker in reserve.

Erik was very afraid of the Bolt, so he hid everything in the building in his deployment zone, much like he did against Bakunin. This is another null deploy situation, Erik! Danger! Danger!

I deployed the Peacemaker in the center of the table, and Erik put the Speculo behind it, ready to template it (or so I thought).

Turn 1

Top of 1 – NCA

As expected, Erik takes two orders. I figure we might as well get it over with and I move the Peacemaker forward, fully planning to dodge against the inevitable template. To my utter shock, Erik fires in slug mode! I contest with the Spitfire and land a flamethrower template, pasting the Speculo and then caramelizing the goo that’s left.

I just hammer the Peacemaker into Erik’s forces, gunning down an Ikadron which attempts to flash pulse and burning both the Ikadron and the Dartok down with the Auxbot’s flamethrower.

I push in further and ace the Suryat with the Peacemaker and snag Extreme Prejudice off the Dartok.

I’m out of orders and I pass turn.

Bottom of 1 – Combined Army

Well, Erik can’t do any classifieds, and I can just run around doing all of them on my turn, so we call it here.

3-0, 150-43 Neoterran Capitaline Army Victory!

Post Game Analysis

This was an incredibly short game, and it boils down to two things:

  1. Null Deployment – You cannot null deploy against a Peacemaker
  2. Slug Mode – Erik sort of didn’t null deploy because of the Speculo, but he also let me have 4 on 15s versus 1 on 18s.

That’s basically it! And yeah. Peacemaker alphas are gross. Thanks for reading.

I primarily play Infinity and Heavy Gear nowadays, but I dabble in plenty of other game systems.

One thought on “One and Done

  • Great little games. I’ve been wanting to try out smaller, meaner, leaner Infinity for a while.

    It didn’t come up here but probably will when people think about this style of Infinity. Most line infantry troops, like Fusiliers, cannot form Duo links. Harris or Core on you need at least 3 members to form either of those. Cheap little duos would be gnarly for 150 points!
