Prologue, Force and Area of Operations

The room was small, old and used. Despite that it was clean, only two chairs and a small table were in it. A small woman in a worn uniform, with brand new rank insignia, of the Naffatun was waiting. Her long black hair trailing in a pony tail behind her.

The door opened and another woman entered, she was at least one head taller than the other one. Her blond hair still was bleeding camo paint onto her ragtag uniform. Startled to see someone in the room she threw a quick salute.

“Corporal Ara´ila Kismet reporting as ordered Lieutenant.”

The small woman breathed out loudly and took the salute.

“At ease. You´re late.”

“Sorry, I..:”

“Keep your excuses, we are tight on time. Give me the short run of the disaster.”
Obviously relieved the blonde sat down.

“Whew, well we were on duty to protect the decoy of Bianka. Someone had put nuthead Lieutenant Rana Taran (Djanbazan) in command.” She spat out the word Lieutenant with disdain.

“When the alarm for intruders came, she quickly commandeered everyone around. Khaleb (Khawarij Doc) the old slacker, Herman the Naffatun, who was running around with his pet Kameel Dirt Hopper (Minesweeper). Then there was Ceran Tarani an overeager Daylami who practically ran off, when he heard that there was a fight.”

The black haired woman made a face at this.

“What?”

“Both his siblings just were killed on Ilik.”

“Damn, that´s rough. So, Keyera Masa (Odalisque) also was there and she took to guard the Lt. At least Cerkan ibn Towat was around and his Feuerbach eased me a little bit. Rana tried to order me on the other side of the field, but I refused and stayed close to Bianka (HVT) as the commander ordered me.”

The other woman nodded at that.

“This is the place we met the bastards.”

Not the best team in the house

Deplyoment and Mission

Important Note: So Warconsole crashes all the time and my Internet is busted anyway atm, so I dump all the text here and publish. If both works fine again I try to put in the pictures that are missing. :(

We were pretty scattered when we arrived, with a totally disoriented Ceran (Daylami) on our left flank, Herman and Dirt hopper were there as well. Rana, Khaleb and Keyera were in center and Cerkan (Azra´il) was on the right flank. I stayed with Bianka. We practically ran into a fortress of six Sheriffs (Alquacil), with an engineer (Clockmaker) and a frigging TAG (Gecko) in centre. Two Wildcats secured their flanks.

H 1
I don´t know what they wanted, but behind us were civilians en route to an evacuation zone. So Rana gave the order to attack. We moved forward (coordinated Naffatun, Azra´il, Kameel and Odalisque) and got a transmission from the crazyhead Kemal Kundacki (Ragik Hacker).
He talked about somewhat Rangers to the Rescue and slit out a ventilation duct on the ceiling running towards the Gecko and tried to take control of it. Which failed totally.

Cerkan must have lost it because he mirrored the bullshit Kemal had said and ran forward firing at the Gecko and eating a missile from the Sheriff on the roof. Rana told me to cover the dickheads and I fired a grenade at the Gecko and their Hacker, it went wild, but the Gecko retreated from Cerkans hit (1 wound to a crit) and he also was hurt (1 wound from the missile)

N 1

The Sheriffs went crazy, first obliterating Cerkan with several missiles and then their sniper killed Herman, with five bullets, talk about overkill. (Two missiles meant 3 more wounds to the Azra´il and the Sniper landed five hits into the Naffatun over three orders, of which he saved 7 ARM rolls). Dirt Hopper was next and collapsed into a heap.

Not satisfied their missile launcher blasted away the billboard behind which Ceran (Daylami) had taken cover. Startled in the open their sniper shot him down as well. (1 wound only though)
While the Sheriffs took new positions, one of their Wildcats came out of the building and shot killed Kemal. (Ragik Hacker, three hits, three wounds)

Then all the cats and the Gecko advanced towards us.

H2

Rana blathered something about stalling their advance. I´d agree these guys were not here to fool around. So we stalled. Keyera moved through the car workshop (objective room) and shot down the foremost Wildcat. I lobbed a grenade at their Hacker, my aim was true but this guy must have been made from steel and he shrugged it off. While Khaleb didn´t move, probably reciting his favourite verses again, Rana made herself useful and shot at the Gecko from behind a tree, which obscured her. (Trees were Zero Vis zones) She damaged the machine, which retreated, she pressed the attack and was hit in the chest for her troubles as the Gecko shot right through the tree. (Gecko lost 1 wound, but critted in the second order)

N2

At least we had slowed them down. Except the Cat on our left flank, he ran all across towards a passenger van hiding behind it. Their Engineer emerged and jury-rigged some cables on the Gecko. (repaired 1 STR) Awhile the Sheriffs split their team (the heavy weapons stayed behind and the foremost three Alquacil made a new link) one of them fired a medpistol at the downed Wildcat, who died horribly after that.

The Gecko and the Engineer also advanced further, at this time the passenger van exploded. (Classified Sabotage, the Clockmaker detonated the D-Charges from the Wildcat)
The Sheriffs advanced further and Keyera took a shot at the first one, but was hit four times in return. (one crit and three hits from the Alquacil Hacker, 3 wounds to the Odalisque.

H3

Only Khaleb and I remained and we couldn´t do much more. I lobbed some grenades to cover us which even downed two of the Sheriffs.(One grenade taks out the Hacker and the FO of the Alquacil)
Then I crawled back through the bushes, shouldered Rana and dragged Bianka out of there. I shouted at Khaleb to move, but he seemed oblivious. I don´t know where he is, probably the Nomads just let him stand there singing.

Aftermath

“When I arrived at the shelter most civilians were gone and I ran into a combat force under the command of Commander Masters, who tried to defuse the situation with the Nomads immediately.”
The other woman nodded again.

“Well, you did good Ara´ila, Bianka is safe and Lt. Taran is on her way to recovery. The Nomads seem to be content to have wreaked some havoc to Yu Jing property. Dismissed. Get some rest.”
The Hunzakut rose and saluted.

“Yes, Lieutenant…” she hesitated and looked closer at the rank insignia. “1st class? Promoted, huh. Congratulations Cigdem.”

“Thank you. Now get out of here, before someone comes around and insists on protocol.”
---------------
So that was disastrous. It was a quick second game yesterday. I just threw together a list of models from my collection who not yet had seen action during Wotan and I ended with this assortment. Then I won the Initiative and stupidly took first turn, then I left several models open to attacks and wasted my Ragik (who was the only one able to do both of my Classifieds) with a suicide run. Yeah, I don´t know what Loa rode me. Bad dice came on top and he didn´t make any mistakes. So a sweet
8-0 with me in retreat in 3 turn. Next time I try to think more before acting^^
So this was the last game of Wotan for me. It was fun.
