1 Crazy Fool
The first delivery of the store came in yesterday with a wagon load of ammunition and arms, as well as food and supplies! The Bandidos plan to attack in the middle of the night and harass the currently sentry 7th cavalry who have elected themselves to stand guard of the load while it is inventoried in exchange for their free fill of ammunition.
The Board has one building, the cliff edges, some loot and packages, a small field with cart and three flaming torches.
we used an old pizza disk for this and we measured approximately the radius of the torch light. Each sentry guarding his light couldn't move more than 6" away from it without it effectively going out.
No one could shoot without line of sight and you could only shoot from dark to light and not light to dark, although there is nothing to say you can't try!
- Protect the store at all costs
- keep two of three torches lit until sunrise (turn 6)
- herd the longhorn to the wagon
- Ride the wagon out of the valley before turn 6
Awkwardly the captain dove behind the longhorn, although precious to the Bandido's in this scenario the animal is worthless to the 7th cavalryman so instead it became dependable cover. Consequently the Bandidos continued to fire anyway. as is their nature having to roll to see who they hit and luckily hitting the captain, causing no wounds!
Seen at the bottom of the image above is the Crazy fool and Hombre running into ambush position and at the far back is the two remaining Accomplices in suppressing fire position!
Succesfuly passing his checks and measuring the distance for the throw (in this case 11") he found he was one inch short of the Bandido closest (and from which the shots came) and instead just managed to light up the area for a second.
As the night is pierced with light the 7th cavalry make a series of checks to see who is aware of which enemies! Gladly the 7th Cav pass all of their checks revealing the positions of all but one of the mexicans, the lowly Hombre!
meanwhile the Crazy Fool lays down some lead toward the direction of the General, causing him to pivot around the table and putting him in a very compromising postion as per the other two (suppressing) Accomplices!
With this three point attack now in force the Bandidios have victory in their sights, now all they have to do is overpower guard one and herd the Longhorn to the wagon!
As the game ended the 7th Cavalry had sustained two fatalities and many wounds and the Mexicans just one fatality! Although they managed to push back the Mexicans and protect the loot they lost some important people and the unit will never be the same again!
VICTORY: 7th Cavalry
