By far not all the models in our collections but enough for eye candy.
For the scenario each faction was split between two players who must work together. Each faction started in one of the four corners, their objective: the station in the middle of the table. At the end of each turn any faction with one or more ships (still alive) within 30cm of the station got a point. Considering that maximum weapons range is 100cm this meant that any ships gaining points would be in range of each other. At the end of the game the faction with the most points won, even if they were completely destroyed.
The forces the players used were the following:
1x Steamrunner Class Light Cruiser
1x Challenger Class Light Cruiser
1x Springfield Class Frigate
1x Olympia Class Light Cruiser
1x Kopis Class Fast Destroyer
1x Lightray Class Missile Frigate
4x Viper Mk VII Squadrons
2x Raptor Mk II Flights - Nukes Loaded
1x Quasar Fire Class Light Carrier
4x CR90 Class Corvettes
3x X-Wing Flights
3x Y-Wing Flights - Proton Torpedoes Loaded
3x B-Wing Flights - Proton Torpedoes Loaded
1x Warlock Class Destroyer
3x Omega Class Destroyers
3x Marathon Class Cruisers
A lot of Aurora and Thunderbolt Starfuries!
This game was very tiring due to the inherent chaos of the scenario but frighteningly beautiful to watch. The Earth Force and Colonial players agreed that their melee was the most vicious battle they had every played in a game. The Rebel players were satisfied that their sneaky and evasive tactics had payed off. The Starfleet players had been so engrossed in their mission to kill the corvettes they forgot both the time limit and the scenario objectives.
I have to thank eight wonderful players who took to the scenario with gusto and learned the rules in short order. Many of them came up to me later and thanked me for the game, Dave even gave me a big bear hug in the middle of the hall, thanks buddy!
I think this game proved that I can run cross universe games at conventions, I just need to be ready for the chaos. See you next year!
