Predator - Galactic Heroes AAR (Pic heavy)
« on: August 26, 2021, 06:42:16 PM »
This afternoon my friend Chris & I played our first game of GH in about a year.

The Predator


Scenario -"Get to da chopper!"
2 Players
4'x4' Playing Area

There's something out there in the jungle! The mission is blown and the only option is to extract to the RV point.

Forces:
Elite Team (Chris): Dutch, Sniper Specialist, 2 operatives, Medic, Machinegunner
Predators (Me): Hunt Leader, Hunt Specialist, 3 Predators

Set Up:
Jungle & rocky outcrops. Helicopter extraction point in middle of top edge opposite Elite Team entry (bottom) edge.  Predators enter from top edge.


Victory:
Elite Team:
Major: Get to da chopper with at least 3 team members.
Minor: get to da chopper with at least 1 team member.

Predators:
A successful hunt, preventing the Elite Team escaping

Initial deployment & early moves














Sniper gets to the high ground and goes prone before targetting a Predator


An operative spots & wounds another Predator


A Predator rips apart one of the operatives


The sniper & gunner advance towards the dead Predator


The hunt leaves behind its first victim, in search of more sport


Dutch and the medic take out another Pred


As a Predator rushes towards him, the sniper inflicts a wound


Dutch leads half the team up a flank towards the RV as the hunt leader tracks them


As the sniper continues to engage one Pred, the gunner engages and kills another


The medic provides covering fire as the team advances


The predator clears a wound and engages the sniper in a bloody melee, as the gunner returns to help the fight


A lucky shot takes out the hunt leader


The sniper is wounded and the gunner killed


Dutch to the rescue, saving the sniper


First man makes it to the RV


With no Predators left standing, we called it game over


The team survivors make it to da chopper!


4 team members (inc. wounded sniper) make it to the RV, while 2 died.  4 Predators died with the fifth down & wounded.  A major victory for Dutch & the team.

Probably our most enjoyable game of GH so far, with lots of movie references.  :D 8)

Thanks everyone  :)

It was a fun game. Lots of references to the movie.  The sniper & medic performed particularly well, with the gunner and operatives expending loads of ammo (with multiple reloads) but not hitting much.  I did the crew traits to make the Team shooty and the Predators tough in melee which was definately reflected in how they performed in the game.  Despite using lots of cover only two Preds got hand-to-hand with any team members.

I Have 3, but didn't use them for this game.  Old pic below:
