The Elbonian village where it is suspected that Dr. Zweikiesel is being held. Dark shapes are shambling around the streets. This is going to be a night mission with low visibility.
Team Alpha commanded by Jil. Comprised of four Rep5 Spetnaz advisors and eight Rep3 Elbonian guards.
Team Bravo commanded by Nick (other Nick, not my kid). Comprised of four Rep5 Spetnaz advisors and eight Elbonian Rep3 guards.
Approaching stealthily in the dead of night, the teams close on the dark and quiet village. At first contact one of Jil's team leaders takes down a thug but return fire drops the advisor OOF. This starts the ball rolling. One squad advances and makes it to the building.
Meanwhile, Nick is carefully approaching on the right and has made it to a secure position undetected. One of his groups are climbing the ladder of the building.
Back on Jil's side we see his lads tossing grenades on the building and smoking out the rats. His squads are moving up. And so are the Zeds! The noise is starting to attract them.
A short while later Jil sends a squad streaking across the street but they are caught in a tremendous volley of fire from the roof top of the building across the street. This squad is shot to pieces with one survivor ducked back.
Jil's squad on the right is then assaulted by Zeds but his boys take them out, no problemo.
The shattered squad is now providing lunch for a mob of Zeds. Well, at least it will keep the Zeds busy for a while.
After finishing off the Zeds, Jil's right hand squad continues their advance and draws fire from a second story floor of the building across the way. They return fire and kill a thug.
Immediately afterwards, Nick's squad who has made it to the roof top, throws down a grenade and then goes in to clean up. A perfectly executed joint attack.
Back on the left, another coalition strike squad attempts to push it's way forward but they are shot to pieces. The entire squad is shattered. Those thugs in the building are going to be tough to dig out.
Jil's center squad cleans up the survivors of their grenade assault and secures the building. Now to deal with the thugs across the street. In a coordinated attack between both commanders they manage to take down the thug stronghold across the street.
On the right, Nick's assault is going pretty well. Between grenades and over watch fire they manage to neutralize an enemy position with only a couple of casualties.
Sensing disaster, Dr. Eevil and his assistants start jumping ship. Out they come with Dr. Zweikiesel as a human shield. The coalition isn't letting him get away, they open up anyway and more casualties on both sides. Luckily the Doc isn't hit.
Dr. Eevil is running short on henchmen. He's even lost his beloved cocktail waitress. The coalition is closing in fast.
Nick's squads are kept busy clearing Zeds. And more Zeds. And more Zeds.
Dr. Eevil is making a break for it! Someone stop him fast!
As Dr. Eevil makes for the escape vehicle with his remaining crew he is joined by his last two henchmen who are already in a firefight with Nick's advanced elements. They are trading kills.
They make it to the truck! Dr. Eevil and Zweikiesler get inside and the others in the bed. The firefight continues and Nick's squad leader goes down!
And then one of Jil's sneaky Russians takes a shot with an RPG. He misses but kills one thug. Hey wait a minute!!! Don't these bozos realize that the hostage is in there!? The Commandant is not going to be happy if they blow Zweikiesler to oblivion.
As the coalition closes in and the firefight continues, the battle starts to go against the crime Lord. His henchmen are down or cowering as the truck takes off with squealing tires for a last bid for freedom.
The hero of the day! This Elbonian Guardsman has gunned down some thugs this day. Who'd have thunk it?
The truck takes off and is almost free when Nick's RPG man lets loose a rocket. The truck crashes and Dr. Eevil and Dr. Zweikiesler both go OOF. Well, they didn't get away, and the Dr. isn't dead, but what are the big shots gonna say about this operation?
The survivors of Alpha Team.
The survivors of Bravo Team.
Dr. Eevils gang. All went OD or OOF.
This was a fun little throw together that we put on at the local game shop again this weekend. It took about two hours to play. Nick and his friends are nagging to play ATZ this afternoon so I may have another batrep coming soon :)
