Jiyuan Quarry after action report:
Zheng Ren’s team had orders to guard a section of urban territory in the periphery of the Jiyuan Quarry and defend it at all costs from any and all hostile forces. Glory to Yu Jing and glory to the Emperor!
Notes: Sorry for the mostly unpainted models. We also proxied a few models. Proxies are listed below. Also, Ramah Taskforce player Holyhippie unfortunately forgot his models, hence why all of his models are proxies. Lastly, the middle console/crate was treated as a saturation zone (on top of a fountain).

In the roll-off, the Yu Jing commander won and claimed deployment, chose their side of the board and chose for the Haqqislamite commander to deploy first. The Haqqislamite commander chose first turn.
Yu Jing: Zhanshi (Paramedic) Luxie
Haqqislam: Tarik Mansuri
Yu Jing: Experimental Drug
Lieutenant Zheng Ren and his team were in position in the defense of the quarry from alien and dumb foreigners, when Haqqislam forces were detected as advancing on the quarry. Lieutenant Zheng Ren and his team took up defensive positions. The Haqqislamite forces were identified as Ramah taskforce and the hostiles proceeded to advance with Tarik Mansuri on the left flank, with Zhencha Zhaoying and Zhanshi Paramedic Mengda responding and opening fire. Tarik Mansuri returned fire and severely injured Zhencha Zhaoying, but Tarik Mansuri was reportedly wounded by Zhanshi Paramedic Mengda.
Afterwards, Tarik Mansuri proceeded to utilize three grenades against Zhanshi Paramedics Mengda and Luxie, injuring both and causing them to fall unconscious. Lastly, Tarik Mansuri moved to cover and utilized yet another grenade to kill Zhencha Zhaoying after which Tarik Mansuri moved from cover to the bridge walkway up the stairs in a prone position.
Responding to the use of lethal force, Lieutenant Zheng Ren ordered a coordinated movement with Zuyong Invincible Riyu Qin and Zhencha Ha Rui where Zuyong Invincible Riyu Qin moved from cover to atop a shipping container, awaiting further instructions, and Zhencha Ha Rui moving in on Tarik Mansuri from behind.
Afterwards, Zhencha Ha Rui took the initiative and climbed up behind Tarik Mansuri and shot him twice at point blank range with a boarding shotgun, surprising and killing the Haqqislamite lieutenant and datatracker.
Advancing further, Zhencha Ha Rui moved into cover behind the nearest console, awaiting further instructions.
Lastly, Zuyong Invincible Riyu Qin moved to cover behind a small stack of crates, keeping an eye on the enemies in the building diagonally across.
Following the counterattack by Zheng Ren’s team, the Haqqislamite forces moved their fireteam out of the building on the right and approached the center square and fired on Zuyong Invincible Riyu Qin with a rocket launcher, wounding Riyu Qin. Zuyong Invincible Riyu Qin attempted to return fire but was not successful. Zuyong Invincible Riyu Qin then proceeded to move into full cover.
The Haqqislamite fireteam then attempted to utilize the console for heating a zone of the area of operations, but failed.
Following this, Zuyong Invincible Riyu Qin attempted to shoot the new Khawarij lieutenant twice, but the return fire wounded Zuyong Invincible Riyu Qin once more, causing Riyu Qin to fall unconscious.
Zhencha Ha Rui then proceeded to utilize the console he was in cover behind to heat the deployment zone of the Yu Jing forces, after which Ha Rui advanced closer to the Haqqislamite fireteam while staying in cover.
Following this, Zhencha Ha Rui peeks from cover and attempts to shoot the grouped up Ghulams in the fireteam with a boarding shotgun, succeeding in killing all but the Ghulam doctor and foward observer, who were still hit and fell unconscious. The enemy Ghulam with a rocket launcher and the Khawarij lieutenant attempted return fire with a pistol and light shotgun respectively, but were unsuccessful.
Desperate and the only member left of his team, the Khawarij lieutenant attempted once more to activate a heating unit, succeeding in activating the heating unit immediately in front of the Yu Jing deployment zone. Then, the Khawarij lieutenant attempted to shoot Zhencha Ha Rui, with the latter surviving thanks to his armour. The enemy lieutenant then secured our HVT. After this, Zhanshi lieutenant Zheng Ren attempted thrice to shoot the Khawarij Lieutenant, but was unsuccessful.
The enemy lieutenant surrendered and was taken captive with the remaining unconscious Haqqislam forces left to die of exposure and the unconscious Riyu Qin, Mengda and Luxie recovered for immediate treatment. Unfortunately, Zhaoying was beyond help and we mourn her loss greatly.
Apparently the signs from Palpatine Lobbying Inc. shown in the attached pictures proved to be a great help in forcing the enemy into predictable firelanes. That, and the investment in the local area under our influence clearly shows. Perhaps they can be relied upon for different means? Can they sponsor us? (Is that even possible?)
This ends my report.
