After turning around will I be able to move to 2821 to take a shot at the Wolverine with my SRMs and Med lasers? If I can deal with the heat I’ll add my Lg lasers to the mix as well. Would be nice to take the shot from the woods in 2721 but I don’t think I’ll have enough MPs to do that...or do I? :think:

Best you can do is 2822 facing north (back up two hexes, turn right two).

Minimum path to 2823 requires 7MP, which you don't have (2721 is even worse 'cause of the woods).

Turn around, walk to 2825, fire at the Hatchetman's back in 2919. Figure gbasden can focus on the downed Warhammer while I hopefully help out around the vehicles.

Also, are the vehicles taking evasive action? I assume we should be telling them to move away from the enemy.

Also I don't think that the APC should count against us, seeing as how it destroyed itself.

For the purposes of contract fulfillment, nobody's going to blame us for that one, but we still need to get a majority of the convoy to its destination intact.

Goddamnit, I could've sworn that mech was on the hostiles list.

I don't think there are any targets up north that make sense, so instead I'll stay still and fire at the Warhammer.

I may be lumbering on the outside but I’m a graceful gazelle at heart. Make it so. I’ll waddle up to 2822. If I can fire anything when I get there, great. If not I’ll bide my time.

If the Warhammer is down, does it still get to move after us?

Yes, but not very far: getting up costs two MP (with a free facing change), so he'll be moving at most 4 hexes away.

Leraje and Stefan move to finish off the last two tanks. Leraje's lasers take out the Vedette as it struggles to rotate its turret around. Stefan scores a laser hit on the Saracen but the nimble hovertank avoids most of the incoming fire. What it doesn't avoid is Leraje putting the Guillotine's foot through the left side.

Isgrimnur and the Wolverine exchange autocannon fire, Isgrimnur's weapon briefly stitching a line across the Wolverine's back. Job accomplished though, it didn't take out any of the scattering convoy vehicles. The Wolverine runs clear of Siljanus' field of fire, leaving our mechwarrior with little recourse but to flip the Stalker's arms backwards and zap some infantry running towards El Guapo's Marauder. Infantry flitting through the woods are hard to kill in large numbers with non-dedicated weapons, but every time you hit one, there's not much that infantry armor can do against a mech's laser.

El Guapo takes aim at the Warhammer as it struggles to get up, nailing it with a PPC shot and a gauss slug, as well as a laser, gouging chunks of armor. Gbasden takes a laser to the left torso from the enemy mech, but then blows its right PPC off with the Awesome's weapons. The Awesome's cockpit heats up quite a bit, but the damage inflicted was worth it. Somehow, the Warhammer's operator manages to keep the mech upright.

The liaison and the retreating tanks to the southwest take some ineffective parting shots at each other as they disengage. The Wolverine fires his jumps up and moves to withdraw to the north, while the Warhammer leaves his arm behind and crashes through the woods to the south. The flamer infantry disperse into the woods as well.
