There was an Alphastrike game I played once with the kitchen settings as terrain because we didn't have a map with us. Had mechs hiding behind salt shakers and standing on beer cans. It was epic.

*BZZZZT!* The Battlemaster hits our Awesome in the leg with his 1 PPC, the rest misses.

Posted Image
In the meantime, the Catapult indirect fires LRMs at our Griffin. Minimal damage!

Posted Image
Our turn! Everyone targets the Battlemaster this time. Our Catapult needed 8s and 10s to hit, his whole payload misses, while 3 of our 4 PPCs connect!

Posted Image
Our Awesome lands two shots on the center torso, our Griffin hits the leg.

Posted Image
"Incoming!"
A klaxon sounds in the cockpit as Bitching Betty starts up
"Center torso hit, center torso critical damage, medium laser destroyed, reactor failure eminent"

Posted Image
"Center torso critical hit."
"Eject. Eject. Eject."
The auto-ejection system fires and launches our pilot skyward as the reactor goes critical.

That's what I call adding some salt to the game! :D

You know... you can totally still do that. ;)

The Battlemaster charges in at our Awesome and fires an alphastrike...MISS! And serious overheating...

Posted Image
We continue backpedaling with the Awesome. We manage to maintain 3+ hexes of range so the 3 PPCs can fire. All 3 hit, CT,  right leg, right arm.

Posted Image
The Catapult fires as well with his lasers. Only one hits!

Posted Image
Since the LRMs have a minimum range, we fire on the Urbanmech and blow it all to hell.

Posted Image
The enemy Catapult engages our Awesome as well. We're peppered with lots and lots of 5pt hits. Everything's ok though. We planned for this by well, showing up in an Awesome!

We win initiative so that Battlemaster moves first trying to flank us...we go next and simply run our Awesome up the hill and engage his two friends! 3 PPCs MISS! F@&%!

Posted Image
Our Catapult fires on the Urbanmech with LRMs. They all hit, but we only care about that 7 hit making the CT blow out, so we're not even gonna bother with the math on the other 5!

Posted Image
The Battlemaster would really like to alphastrike again here, but he's still overheated from last round. He fires off the SRM6 and 2 Medium Lasers. We're hit all over, but we're in an Awesome, so we have armor all over, not just in the front like the Battlemaster.

*BZZZZZT!* The Capellan Catapult gets it's right launcher blown off! HA!

Posted Image
Their Battlemaster on the other hand rolls EPIC!

Posted Image
*Sirens sound in the cockpit*
"Left leg destroyed! Left torso destroyed! Left arm destroyed!"
"LRM Destroyed! LRM Ammo destroyed! Center torso critical damage!"

Posted Image
The enemy Cat returns fire on our Awesome. A medium laser hits the left arm...useless hit!

Posted Image
Ours does it bit better, doing 15 damage to the Battlemaster!

The Battlemaster overheats and shuts down leaving our Catapult a chance to jump out of the line of fire so we can focus on the enemy Catapult. Our Awesome fires with all weapons and all hit! BAM!

Posted Image
Our Catapult makes a head shot with one of his lasers. This in turn knocks out the pilot when he fails to control his mech!

Posted Image
With the Catapult on the ground this leaves our Awesome with a -4 to hit it so again...we hit with all our PPCs! The Capellan mech is blown to hell as his buddy runs around the hill just in time to watch a fiery explosion!

Posted Image
Our Catapult has run like a bat out of hell in the meantime and is taking cover in heavy woods to make it as hard as possible for the Battlemaster to finish him.  10 LRMS rain on the enemy mech, half of which hit the head...but it doesn't cause him to fall down this time...DAMMIT!

BOOOOOOOOOOOOOM!!!!!!!!!!!! Posted Image

Posted Image
He had to have an 11 to hit with any of it...he missed!

Posted Image
The Battlemaster charges down the Catapult while under fire from our Awesome. Somehow, he makes it to point blank range and fires all his lasers and missiles and only does 5 damage...Our Awesome on the other hand just flat out misses!

Posted Image
The Battlemaster lands a hit with his PPC with our Catapult shooting back with 2 lasers. Our Cat goes up in a raging inferno as the LRM ammo explodes in the right arm.

Posted Image
With the Catapult destroyed, he charges us down managing to blow off our left arm, which doesn't have anything in it....our return fire of all 3  PPCs takes out the center torso and drops the mech. Rockets fire as the Cappellan is forced to eject as the Battlemaster explodes!

Recap:
Crab CRB-20 (Salvaged)
Urbanmech UM-R60 (Salvaged)
BattleMaster BLR-1G (Salvaged)
Catapult CPLT-C1 (Destroyed)
Griffin GRF-1E (Salvaged)
Catapult CPLT-C1 (Destroyed)
Awesome AWS-8Q (Moderate Damage)

We manage to recover everything but the Catapults, they both went out due to massive damage followed by ammo explosions. Next mission we'll be able to have the Crab, Griffin and Awesome, the rest are too badly damaged and will need more repair time.

Attention TDF forces, we've got a Leopard Class dropship on radar near your location. With Capellan actions in the area, presume it's a hostile.

Posted Image
Rog, base. Looks we we've got a heavy lance of mechs on the ground at Nav Gamma! Appears to be a Battlemaster, Thunderbolt, a Catapult and a..Commando.

Posted Image
Incoming! AArRRGGGG!!!!!..............Base!! That's no ordinary Catapult, my armor's stripped, I'm hurt bad!

Posted Image
Focus fire on the Catapult, she's an SRM boat!

The Catapult is stripped of armor from our Crab and Griffin firing. The Crab lands a critical hit on their engine, preventing that bastard from overheating and firing off EVERYTHING.

Posted Image
Our force fans out and begins to surround them!

Posted Image
The enemy Commando comes around the hill and fires on our Griffin with SRMs. Roughly half hit, and our last bit of armor is blown off.

Posted Image
His buddy in the Thunderbolt on the other hand manages to deal critical damage. Our targeting system is toast, we're down to iron sights!

Posted Image
Meanwhile on the north flank, the Catapult is blocked from trying to get into the river to cool her overheating reactor. She fires off what she can into our Crab.

Posted Image
Fortunately, we're in the water and can overheat all we want! The Catapult goes up in a massive explosion as Jenny ejects from her cockpit.

It's the 31st century, that tech is long since gone and we're at the stage of fighting over the last can of tuna fish with our 400 year old patchwork  battlemechs!

The Thunderbolt ignores our crippled Griffin and focuses on the most dangerous thing on the map: Our Urbanmechs.

Posted Image
Moments later, the Commando runs out from behind the hill and nukes our Griffin. Bastards!

Posted Image
A barrage of medium laser fire comes from the Battlemaster, scoring a critical hit on our targeting system.

Posted Image
The Commando continues to circle the lake, pinning down our Urbies in the water as they hunker down against the fire from the two heavier mechs. An AC10 shot comes up out of the lake and nicks the Commando.

Posted Image
Our Awesome scores a direct hit on the Battlemaster from range!

Posted Image
The Commando returns fire, and misses! HA!

Center torso, CRITICAL DAMAGE!

Posted Image
The Thunderbolt and Battlemaster cripple our Urbanmechs, one is limping even slower than usual and the other can't hit the broad side of a barn.

Posted Image
Meanwhile our Crab snipes the Battlemaster from the riverbank, scoring 3 hits!

Posted Image
And our Awesome comes to the rescue by swatting that damned fly...

Posted Image
But it's for naught as the Thunderbolt splits its fire between the Urbies and wipes both out!

on the bright side, they were the urbanmechs that I added to balance the game... :P
