Infinity Campaign – part 3 – Train Robbery

Posted: June 16, 2014 in Gaming, Infinity

A 3rd campaign game this time against Yu Jing. In this game the objectives revolved around hacking data from, and then destroying, a high speed train that had momentarily stopped at a station. The station was protected by a security gun and we entertained ourselves with a choice of a secret secondary mission. For mine I decided to kill an enemy model in ARO.
The board was set in deep jungle and I pulled out an amusing plastic toy that had been purchased in a pound shop for the train. The track was a piece of curtain rail and the board was finished off with the usual walls, barrels etc.

For this game I had decided to try a few new models. I took a Kurgat Engineer with autocannon, a Yaogat with a Panzerfaust and a Preta. I brought the heavy guns as I was expecting my opponent to field a TAG. In the event that didn’t happen. I win the initiative and didn’t have too much trouble marching my Charontid hacker near enough to the train to take the data from it. A great start. However, in my reactive turn I was taken by surprise as a pair of Tiger Soldiers entered the battlefield one on either flank. One of these guys knocked my Med- Tech out and the other, toting a HMG, took the Charontid. The Yaogat and Kurgat were able to retaliate out but the Tigers had done some serious damage to my plan.
I did recover enough to get the Kurgat in range to use his D-charges to destroy the train , but sadly I ran out of orders to complete the job. In the meantime a Yu Jing engineer snuck down the side if the train and managed the job properly.

At this point the Yu Jing had completed all of their objectives but my opponent sportingly played on in an aggressive style. In the final exchanges I was able to hop my Vector Operator into position to kill my opponents most expensive model and my Rasyat killed a charging Monk in ARO to allow me to pick up a couple more XP. It then become apparent the Yu Jing were in retreat and despite taking out my Lieutenant (the Yaogat) we gave the Combined army the win for securing the battlefield. It was really the Yu Jungs day though with all if their objectives done.

I was very impressed with the Kurgat in this game and the Vector was superb as well. I must remember to set up my models more intelligently against combat jumping troops. The Tiger soldiers took me by surprise and really messed up my plans. Another great game and looking forward to more 🙂
