After Action Review

The new infantry have added a very colorful splash to Dropzone Commander. There was a conscious effort between us to defeat our counterpart, and each had the tools to make it happen. They also provided invaluable Forward Air Observers, fitting the role much better than the rest of our infantry, which our normally too busy with other tasks to stand still!

The Mercury Drones once again proved their place in the list by slipping in and taking the winning Focal Point at the last moment. My fire against the Wolverines there was purely incidental, but it ended up tipping the tide in my favor and bringing a super close game down on the PHR side of victory. Those things are just so blasted useful for their points cost.

Though we both got them wiped out, the new infantry played an integral role to our battle plans before they went. Whereas infantry normally feel like they’re simply hanging out for Objectives and to score Focal Points, this game really made them stand out as their own force on the tabletop. I’m just glad I kept his mortars too busy for them to start testing my armor with their Shape Charge rounds!

Tell us about it people; what do you think of the new infantry?
