All Quiet on the Martian Front - USA Forces

I have hardly done any painting this year as have been far too busy with other projects.  But over the past few months I have managed to get a lot more of my USA forces painted.  Still some to paint but so far I now have a reasonable size force.

Turn 1 - Martian

They all advance and open fire. Two armoured cars are destroyed along with one field gun.  They then advance further on there second move.






Turn 1 - Humans

Trucks race to get the crews to the vehicles, All fire and nearly everything misses apart from one MG team who manage to cripple an assault tripod.

Turn 2 - Humans win the initiative

The Trucks continue to race out of the martian path.  Everything fires causing a damage to assault tripods along with a weapons damage and another one with movement problems.  Two drones are also destroyed.



 Turn 2 - Martian

Reinforcements arrives. 1st wave move then fire.  Rolls for damaged movement and weapons are all won. Some cavalry and MG teams are destroyed.  The drones manage to destroy all of the mono Tanks




Turn 3 - Martians

All move and fire. Rolls for damaged movement and weapons are all won again. Another MG team is killed along with 2 armoured cars and 4 stands of Scots guards.  The dominator tripod manages to kill 2 trucks loaded with crewmen.  All move again

All Quiet on the Martian Front - They came from the desert

The British North African Forces have several staging areas in native towns all over North Africa.  They generally have small local forces along with a garrison of British forces, they are storage areas for the building up of supplies so they are ready for a big push to destroy Martian holdfasts in North Africa.


The British garrison ready for inspection.  The vehicles all parked at the back are awaiting crews which are due to arrive over the next few days.




Bedouin camel scouts are racing back to the fort.



They have come to warn that the Martian are advancing quickly and are nearly upon the town.  The bedouin have also informed one of the columns bringing crew for the vehicles and they are making all speed toward s the town. 


The British and bedouin forces quickly deploy.  The first support column arrives and they quickly deploy their guns and armoured cars while the trucks race the crews to the vehicles.



Just as the first wave of Martians arrive
