Rampant Stars: Battle Report- Rumble in the Jungle

Rampant Stars: Battle Report- Rumble in the Jungle



Welcome to my latest battle report for RAMPANT STARS.  This time, I decided to try using the rules as a 1:1 skirmish game instead of a squad based skirmish game.  That means, each “unit” will be a single model with 10 Effectiveness rating each.  A small tweak, but I wanted to get my old Necromunda Cawdor and Demon Blade Shockforce models on the table for a game.   

A Cult in the nearby dome-city stumbled upon an ancient map to the location of a holy data point.  However, the Cult needs to venture outside into the Jungles that surround their hab to locate it.  Little do they know that the datapoint is also sacred to the local Tribals.  As the Cult approaches, the Tribals set-up to stop them

Mission
Missions are generated by rolling 3d6 three times and consulting a mission, complication, and Location chart.  Of course, you don’t have to roll any at all, but for a test game we might as well go for it! 

Secure the Datapoint
The defender sets up the board per the terrain guidelines. A token is placed in the center of the board. The attacker chooses a table edge. The defender deploys on the opposite table edge within 6 inches.
The attacker then deploys within 6 inches of the edge. Each side is trying to hold the data-point token at the center of the board by having an intact unit covering it at the end of turn 8, one hour, or until one side is destroyed/routing. The force on the token at the end wins, if no one is on the token, it is a draw.

The Cultists will be the attackers.

Dawn
The battle starts at the break of dawn. Initial Line-of-sight is 0’ inches. At the end of each turn, the Line-of-Sight distance increases by 6 inches. Therefore, at the end of Turn 1 the Line-of-sight is 6 inches, at the end of turn 2 it is 12 inches, at the end of turn 3 it is 18 inches, etc, etc. This continues until the full length of the board is available.

Location
Outdoor, Jungle
The battle takes place on a Jungle world with huge trees, brightly colored foliage, and dense brush. Shooting only has a Line-of-sight of 6 inches while in the jungle. In addition, the entire board is considered to be difficult terrain. Gaps, clearings and paths are normal, open terrain.

Well then…. this should be something.

Set-up
This board is 4x4 in size using my classic Jungle terrain segments first made for Codex: Catachan.  The brown is considered open trails with normal LOS and terrain.  Anything green is considered jungle and only has a 6 inch LOS and considered in difficult terrain.     

The totem rock in the center of the board is the data-point.  Overlooking it is the ruins of a hilltop fortress, but there seems to be only one winding path that even gets close to the Totem.  The Tribals set-up on the path on their side of the board and are ready to move in towards the totem as quickly as possible.  The Cultists are on the opposite side, spread out along a game trail.
