Before running the 3rd episode of the Starport Scum campaign, I needed some more pieces, including these:
With another intrusion into a corporate facility soon after touching down on Thylla I, I needed to make a few more tiles. As I also realized I had no doors exept for a big blast door, I made a few doors as well. They fit nicely with the new tiles, and hopefully equally well with the old ones.
I also made a few more bases of woods, to be able to fill a table, on Thylla I and other temperate worlds.
As I was busy making terrain, I also made sure to finish a few things for Horizon Wars.
A new threat to the SADU and NTC, known only so far as the Invaders:
The units observed on the fringes of human space.
A heavy command mech, filling a CHQ role.
The Invader line mechs, the equivalent of the NTC Warriors or SADU Turtles.
Armed with missiles and chainguns, these mechs also have advanced targeting computers to help optimize targeting vectors.
Assault mechs, dedicated close combat units. These units have an extra agile frame, to allow them to dodge and weave to get close enough to use their flamethrowers and short-range fusion guns.
The final unit observed are a Heavy mech. Slower and more heavily armed than the line mechs, the heavies sacrifice speed for extra targeting computers and a larger powerplant to fuel the long-range fusion cannons.
The only infantry units spotted so far, these infantrymen fill the role of light infantry.
These sightings also confirm that the invaders are humanoid, possibly of terran origin.
The USS and NIJA regulars also had some reinforcements this time around.
The two pairs of mechs.
Known as the Broadsword, this mech is a heavy frontline unit. Far faster and more agile than the average heavy, the Broadsword sacrifice active defences to maintain offencive capability and speed, prefering to hit hard and fast.
The last mech of today is another heavy. the Halbeard. A heavily armed and armored mech, the Halbeard is a classic heavy mech, slower, with lots of armor. Carrying a hailstorm cannon and a double-barreled laser, this mech is able to wade through heavy fire to reach it's objective.
That's all for now, I have a AAR or two to share in a few days and hopefully the next episode of my Starport Scum adventures.
Til next time!
