Directorate vs Dindrenzi 12.2015

Sometimes you don't have a game table with enough space for a 4x6 board. So we used a pool table! It's almost 8 feet long and about 44 inches wide. This game was played with two objectives worth 8 TV in the middle of the table. We also tested the ability for infantry leaving transports to occupy buildings the same activation as disembarking. Because of the size of the game, we allowed units to not deploy within range of the command element.

Here a view of both army's deployments. The Directorate have 2 core heavy tanks, 2 squads of medium tanks, 2 APCs with full squads, sweepers and sergeants, and 5 buggies. 

The Dindrenzi Federation has 2 heavy tanks with a designator tank, 3 mediums with a designator tank, 5 Levo recon skimmers, 2 drop turrets, and 2 skydrop pods, one fearless with a sergeant and 3 gun teams, one with a sergeant and 3 sweepers. 

Sky drop markers deployed by the Dindrenzi and the recon moves are made.

The Directorate tanks move forward. The Dindrenzi Nyx drop down and take the objective. The Dindrenzi mediums advance and damage the Directorate tanks.

The Directorate APC moved forward and moved their troops into the objective. The Directorate heavies move onto the hill and light up the Letos. 

The Directorate mediums move up to engage the Dindrenzi heavies after they advance to join the party. The APC decides to make its way toward the enemy to have some use.

This was a crazy dice roll. Apparently, there was a little crater in the pool table. Check out that balance.

The directorate APC advances to prepare for a dropoff next turn. Damage from the Directorate mediums kill two of the four Nyx bases. Hard target and cover is fantastic. 

The Dindrenzi turrets drop down and rain HELL on the Directorate Patriots. 4 bases died. Barrage weapons are amazing. 

The Desolators go on overwatch, preparing for the Dindrenzi pod to arrive. 

The pod drops and they storm the objective, not losing anyone but booting out the remaining Patriot! The Desolators kill half the squad in overwatch,. 

On the other side of the table, the Dindrenzi tanks push forward to attack the APC, killing it and 2 Patriots.

This was the final picture of the game. It was really close at the end there but the Dindrenzi were able to take the objective on the left and survive enough to take the objective.

Dindrenzi: -10   Directorate: 7

Keep in mind, this was not a normal game with the regular objective setup. Also, we were testing the ability for squads of infantry to disembark and embark a building in the same activation. This ended only in turn 2, mainly because of this change. It would have been a turn 3 game otherwise. 
I hope you like the battle report! Please let me know if you have any recommendations for next time. Most games we play are not on a pool table...
