I recently discovered an awesome mission in the BRB. Battleforce Recon (page 362-363 of the BRB).

SUMMARY
-500 point armies
-It's played on a 4'x4' board.
-Two primary objective markers.
-Six turns
-Reserves (no night fight)
-Players deploy in opposite corners, deployment zone being anything within 12" of said corner (anything that can't fit in the deployment zone goes in reserve).
-Primary Objectives: are worth 2 victory points a piece
-Secondary Objectives: Slay the warlord, First Blood and Line Breaker.
-Same army building rules as regular games (1HQ 2 TROOPS etc).
-There are optional rules for four way battles (Madness?).

At first glance the rules look very competitive (ironically more so then the core mission), fixed number of objectives, fixed game length, interesting corner deployment that seems to limit horde army spam (or force them to bunch up, fielding 60-80 orks at 500pts was always game breaking). So all in all it looks quite balanced, and could be a load of fun.

So thoughts and Ideas on what you would bring? What would you expect to see other armies bring? Tactics and tricks?

Fire away! Very Happy

Haemy, Liq
2x3 Wracks, Venoms
9 Reavers, AC with Venomblade

Most armies will be hard pressed to get much useful stuff beyond troops in at 500 pts, I think we should take advantage of that and keep our core cheap but still a bit resilient to avoid getting wiped of scoring units. Only 500 pts worth of enemy troops on a 4'x4' boards should mean the Reavers are really hard to catch!
