War In The Woods

Battle #1 Summary

by Neil Rochford

The battle objective for the Funky team (in the employment of the CSA) was once again to `capture Eric` . 1000 points were at stake for a successful mission and equally 1000 points awarded to Erics Relics if they manage to repel the capture.

The FTF (now acting as bounty hunters) set out from one end of Charlie.s wood in search of Eric. The terrain was very hard going with thick vines and dense trees making navigation and mobility a very difficult exercises . To55 was best suited to the environment as To51 had major issues with the swamp like location.

Eric had found an ideal hiding place from tanks , hidden within thick trees surrounded by four of royalties finest troops equipped with not only a valentine Field Artillery piece but also protecting that, a locust M22 tank.

Eric Relics fought well in unison against the FTF , sending the leopard back to base limping and defeated many times .Knowing the FTF leader is not a man to take news of defeat kindly to say the least , the leopard commander was given considerable encouragement to return and finish the job.

The third attack was successful with all the royal guards dead and the locust sporting many holes , To51 headed back to base with Eric on board and awaiting trial. The FTF gives Thanks to the `Free Arundle Transport Services` for once again providing all transportation of the funky arsenal to and from the battle .
