Based on some great feedback by eriochrome I’ve changed up the mission a bit. So, here’s v1.01 of The Long Haul mission. I changed the deployment zones to be larger and also changed how outflanking is done. Eriochrome had suggested a cool method he’s used on a mission but I ended up going with an idea I had. I just wanted something simple for outflank.
The Long Haul
Advance and control up to two objectives while preventing the enemy from doing the same.
Two objectives will be used, one given to each player. Objectives are placed after deciding deployment zones but before deploying any units, starting with the player that will deploy first. The objectives cannot be placed in either deployment zone or impassable terrain and may not be within 12″ of each other.
Short edges are used in this mission. Deploy up to 24″ from a short edge.
Standard game length or time, whichever comes first.
Infiltrate, scout, deep strike, reserves, outflank
*Reserves will arrive from your deployment edge, the short edge
*Outflanking is done from the corners of your enemy’s deployment zone
Massacre – Hold both objectives
Major – Hold the enemy objective with the enemy not holding your objective
Minor – Hold your objective with the enemy not holding their own
Draw – Any other condition
