It's been several days since crossing the debacle of the blown ambush by Team 6-2, and Lt "Mikey" Trojas, commander of TF Trojas, is pouring over maps and message traffic when suddenly Andraz Gregor, leader of the Cronistrian Democrats, darkens his door. "Have you got a moment?" "Sure, Sir, come on in." Gregor quickly explained that one of his key lieutenants was captured ten hours ago, and that Gregor's sources had informed him the lieutenant was being held in a bombed out house in the village of Crocuk, northeast of the capital city of Miran. Gregor stated he was putting together a team to go and retrieve his lieutenant, and could the CLEF task force spare any gear? "Sir, we do. But let us take care of this for you. Let's look at the map, and I'll personally lead the mission."
It's 1030 on 13 April 1990, and Team 6-1 has been briefed, geared up, and conducted its movement to the objective area. They conducted a security halt, and Lt Trojas conducted a recon of the area; the team is now infiltrating as close to the target building as possible to secure the Cronistrian Democrat Militia (CDM) lieutenant.
In any case, the bad guy is just as startled as Rolly and the rounds go wide, Rolly pushes ahead.
That's twice, the no-shootin' bastard!
But this one's a little bit different, yes? The next fight will be Team 6-1 and their guest on the run, being chased by the bad guy QRF (Quick Reaction Force), so this tale is not yet finished. I was kind of up in the air about whether to do that or not, but since I finally got a team through a fight without a serious casualty, I figured, "hey, why not give them a shot at having some real casualties?" ;)
I also thought about giving Mikey a Bronze Star for his two close combats, but I didn't. If he makes it through this next one successfully I'll give him a Silver Star. Excuse me, Estrella de Plata. ;)
The fight went very well, and at such close range the difference between the CLEF SF and the CNG regulars was telling. Violence of action.
Well, that's it for now, I'll look to get some more games in this coming weekend. I'm loving how quick these are; the previous took a tad longer to set up because I used all that lichen, as well as the fact the fight went long (due to the CLEF knocking the bad guys around then the bad guys recovering and knocking the CLEF around), but this fight was quicker than normal and so I got both in (set up, play, take down, set up, play) in about three hours.
More fights to come!
