Turn 1 started with the Combined Force sending out Dr Worm to grab the middle tech coffin. Being a Dr he was smart enough to deploy a haze of white noise to baffle the MSV2 of the Brawler Sniper. As he moved closer Bob from Accounting turned out to be a Speculo who threw a smoke grenade to cover Dr Worms advance and fall back once obtaining a tech crate.

Turns out Arslan is not the only one with assets in the field, As he started to move his fire team into position Saito Togan appeared close to DR Worm and the speculo. Saito tossed a smoke grenade and made for the left most tech coffin and extracted a crate, He then made a mad dash for the safety of he ruined buildings rubble piles.
Seing this Arslan ordered his link team to move up and provid cover for him, but out of knowhere on the roof to the front a Noctifier with missile launcher, knocking out the HMG carrier Druze.
A hunzakut in who had also had the beinift of getting in early and camouflaging themselves made for the right most tech coffin and extracted a crate, then then get vaporized to a rocket from accross the board.

Turn 2 DBS
Arslan sends out a Druze member under the cover of smoke to take the crate from Saito, freeing him up to make a move on the 3rd that was dropped by the Hunzakut, Moving through the ruins and not being noticed Saito attemped to throw another smoke grenade to cover his dash for the crate but failed.
Turn 3 Combined

The Charontid then made a move on Saito, knocking him out of the fight whilst also dropping three HMG round into the back of the prone Druze crate carrier, forcing him to drop it.
From the right board edge a Combined drop troop appeared and took the crate laying on the ground with no fire in return.
Turn 3 DBS
Feeling the losses Arslan spots a Warcor and yells her to move up and try to blind the Charontid without effect, the Charontid in suppression sent a hail of bullets her way but missed and avoided the flash.
