MFZ First Battle w/ Videos!

Postby morganm » Sat Jan 26, 2013 8:45 am

The following is an account of our first Mobile Frame Zero battle. This game is a BLAST! You can check it out for free! If you love it as much as I do then please throw some cash their way and pay for the PDF or even the book. Personally I wanted the book so I ordered that. There's a great community of ppl over on the forums; if you have any questions about how the rules work they will gladly assist! There's also a lot of sharing in mobile frame, terrain, vehicle, and weapon designs which is a lot of fun all by itself! http://www.mobileframehangar.com/index.php

The battlefield is set! The Vultures vs. Unnamed Free Colony. Note book, tape measure, and counter set at 11... lets fight!

Free Colony squad:
- Squash Giant (Free Colony Custom)
- Flame (ST-07B(S))
- Soldier Bright (ST-07B(S))
- Jets (Free Colony Custom)

The Vultures squad:
- Cpt. Griffin (Landmate Mk2)
- Crane (WT-04F "Hi-Leg")
- Midnight (Conscript Advanced)
- Shade (WT-130 Rotten Egg v2)
- Hunch (LHI Prototype : Code Name "Civil Defender")


In the notebook I wrote down each frame, grouped by squad, and what systems the had including d8Rr with little circles by them. When a system or rocket was used I filled in the circle so we knew it was no longer in use and to stop using those dice. Of course a tape measure and dooms day counter.

The Vultures stations from left to right: Comm. relay station, momentium pump, and a disabled momentium tanker.
Free Colony stations: Far back in the middle is a comm. relay station, to the right is a small monument, and behind that is the tail section of a downed aircraft filled with food supplies.

Couple of rounds in now. The Vultures are advancing. Crane takes cover behind the remnants of some building and Jets moves in, on the other side, to engage. Midnight and Hunch have also moved up. You can see half of Cpt. Griffin there who's also closing in on Soldier Bright on the other side of that tree.

Flame moves up next to Jets to help head off the attack.

Intel Report: Vulture drone spots inside one objective.... Crabby Patties!

Squash Giant holds fast.... those Crabby Patties won't fall into the wrong hands on HIS watch!

Hard to see here but I thought it was kinda cool. In the trees there is a micro-fig on some crazy motorcycle my son built.

Cpt. Griffin moves in to take cover and engage Soldier Bright.

Shade fires artillery from cover... with little effect.

Cpt. Griffin is hit! His long range rifle and jump jets are critically damaged! Soldier Bright draws first blood for the FCRs!
Image
DSC08672 by Grumpy Gremlin, on Flickr


Another solid hit by the FCRs! Flame annihilates Midnight's jump jets.
Image

Cpt. Griffin returns the favor and blasts off Soldier Bright's heavy armor plates and his melee stinger.

Again Shade fires from her safe position... and misses... Come on, take your time and aim!

SIT REP: The battlefield thus far...

OHHHhhhh! Soldier Bright deals a crushing blow to Cpt. Griffin with his shock-bat! Thankfully the Captain's blaster took most of the hit... but it's rendered useless... he has no systems left!

Cpt. Griffin makes a run for it and sprints off to a nearby enemy station! He radios to Midnight to close in and assist!
Image
DSC08710 by Grumpy Gremlin, on Flickr


Hunch isn't too happy about loosing Midnight to the Cpt.'s orders but Crane is still near by to help. Jets swings around cover and tries to flank. Hunch has eyes on him and calmly notifies Crane "Eh... watch yer six there Crane."
Image
DSC08711 by Grumpy Gremlin, on Flickr


Shade finally dials in on a target to devastating effect. Shade pinpoints his location and fires a full artillery barrage... Soldier Bright may have drawn first blood but he was the first destroyed frame! Cpt. Griffin has to reluctantly order the exuberant chatter over the radio to quiet down "Settle down kids.... lets focus here..."
Image

Jets tries to return the favor on Crane and hits but not as hard as he'd liked. Crane looses his tactical double-barrel shotgun. Jets slinks away back into cover.

My opponent gives me a weird smile.... what is he up to? O_o
Image
DSC08718 by Grumpy Gremlin, on Flickr


Flame sprints in to flank Midnight!
Image
DSC08719 by Grumpy Gremlin, on Flickr


Once again Hunch's array of surveillance systems saves the day. Midnight narrowly dodges. Squash Giant takes measure of his surroundings... what's his plan?
Image
DSC08722 by Grumpy Gremlin, on Flickr


Midnight fires his single shot rocket! Squash Giant looks out across the field... as if in slow motion the projectile bears down on him...
Image
DSC08724 by Grumpy Gremlin, on Flickr


The ordinance impacts upon the mammoth frame striking his momentium power cells which erupt in a cacophony of flaming wreckage!
This behemoth is reduced to little more than a hi-leg; all 4 systems lost with one rocket.

Fearless leader is visible shaken by this single, devastating attack...

Cpt. Griffin takes the enemy comm. station. Midnight moves in to capture the monument. The tides are changing in favor of the offensive.
Image

Crane falls back towards the momentium tanker. The FCR repositions. Crane fires his rail gun on Flame finishing him off.
Image

Jets moves up and fires on Crane! DICE SHENANIGANS! Lets see the video...

I shot a video just before the final round. You'll see there that Crane has lost his rail gun and comm. antenna. Jets tore up Crane while he retreated to hold the momentium tanker. That makes THREE frames I'm down to just white dice on; Cpt. Griffin, Midnight, and now Crane.

Ended up that I took all his stations in that last round. Up until then it was very close; a mater of 3 points between our scores which flip-flopped a few times. However capturing his last station solidified my lead and that was the end of the game. It was a good battle, a lot of fun, and I hope you enjoyed the battle report!

Does the PDF come out garbled?
Cause when I loaded it a lot of it just shows up as random strings of numbers and letters with lots of spaces inbetween

Yeah me too.

Was gonna :wtc: about apparent :pedo: but then I remembered you're a dad. That crashed bit of airplane is one of my favorite-looking terrain pieces ever.
