Battletech Alpha Strike
In continuation to my previous post on Battletech we had a go at Alpha strike last week.
It was a small game about 150 points per side.
We used the hex maps as it was our first game and wanted to make it as easy as possible with the measurements and LOS.
We both had about equal forces 2 mechs, 1 tank, 3 infantry each.
The battle was fast and fierce.
We both made mistakes the most important of which was that the mechs get blown away much faster than in classic battletech (I lost a Dervish in 1 round of shooting).
I love calcic battletech but alpha strike will give us the opportunity to put lots of staff on the table.
We will be continuing our test in both classic and alpha strike.
