Sunday Night saw the first outing for the Mobile Infantry and the Arachnids, for me Starship Troopers falls into the category of Zulu, Private Ryan & Last of the Mohican's, at one stage in the life of your wargaming hobby you just have to try and game it....
During the Battle of Klendathu a platoon of Mobile Infantry are sent forward to hunt for a missing walker and for evidence of Bug activity in the area, the unit consists of two sections of Infantry and a command elements within an APC.
The table.... The Mobile Infantry will be moving on from Right to Left, they decide on a wide frontage to provide them with the best opportunity to spot the powered down walker.
The retreating APC can be seen in the background with a bug still clinging to the armour plating.
A great nights gaming completed in under 2 hours using the THW rules 5150.
With a further 20 Warrior bugs to paint and a unit of fliers I expect a tougher battle next time for the MI....
