Battle Missions 3- Scorched Earth

The third and final CSM mission. The mission featured a modified table quarters mission with a 9" bubble on your quarter. The win condition was D3+2 objectives, same sort of scoring and everything. The major difference in the game was the terrain. Every piece of area terrain had either dangerous or +1 cover save, AND it blocks line of sight. A retcon to 4th edition? Hmm.. interesting.

It was the same lists as Black Crusade, with my friend PJ. It was a very slow and boring game. Neither of us could really get good lines of sight to each other, and I put my Dreadnoughts in a terrible position. The action increased at turn 4 with some intense combats. PJ put the smackdown on me, and he handily captured the objectives.

My grade for the mission: C+. With 5th edition codexes, 5th edition lists and 5th edition terrain, the area terrain blocking LoS is TERRIBLE. It makes the game incredibly boring and unfun. The objectives and deployment are perfectly fine, but the rest of the additions made the game incredibly boring.
