With the Hishen threat growing, Gaea Prime takes proactive measures to protect the inner rings.
An assault is launched against the Hishen-controlled planet of Breykin II to establish a Foothold that will allow the Star Army to capture this planet.
Landers touch down in a wooded area and the 1st Squad of the 1st Platoon of the White Devils Company begins a scouting mission to find priority targets and get a read of the enemy strength in the area.
Campaign Morale and Investment are 3 and 2 respectively for both sides. 1st Squad doesn’t have a Star on the board.
The Star Army squad rushes through the trees, trying to make it to the other side as quickly as possible. There was some concern that there might be contact at the forest’s edge, but nothing was encountered.
Before clearing the treeline, the SA squad took up cover in the woods with a view to the east and were rewarded, spotting a Hishen squad also on patrol, probably looking for them.
The grenadier and rapid-fire laser made short work of the Hishen squad, killing two outright, seriously injuring two more, and sending the remainder running for the hills (literally).
Unfortunately, the rest of the Hishen force escaped to report the SA presence, so the SA squad rushed to complete their mission, sweeping up and across the northern segment of the engagement area and then back toward HQ to report.
Star Army got the intel it needed, but unfortunately warned the enemy of their presence.
No change in Campaign Morale or Investment Level.
It’s time for an attack!
