Lander's hope

 With the shift of the war displaced to Maerdan itself the loyalists launched an attack on the central Agrology in order to gain the central position and strike freely against the traitors. Both legios clashed in the small farming comunity of Lander's Hope.
 The loyalists got the rescue the crew (red marker) objective while the traitors had to extract a cargo by the opposing board edge
 The crew waiting to be rescued
 Imperius Galgamech rushes to the rescue
 The traitors failed their shield saves with apalling rolls
 A lone warlord speds into the Legio Metalica zone, is the cargo inside?
 Another Mortis retreats backwards, a devious tactic?
 The crew is safely aboard
 Princeps Seniores Pentecost calls for a nuclear missile from the nearby moon, but it falls far from target and straight into Galgamech, the shields hold however
Anticipating the Mortis engine's move, both warlords aim to the place where she will be
Imperius Quintus charges an enemy engine
While Galgamech flees with the crew

Imperius Damnatio destroys her target aiming at the weak rear armur
The titan stumbles and falls
Quintus and Manus Mortis trade shots and swipes, ending with their torsos crippled
Now all Metalica engines turn to aim at the left flank
Galgamech secures the crew
The Mortis titan with the cargo nears the exit, all Metalicas fire and almost bring her down

The cargo is secured
Another titan gets into the deployment zone
Manus Mortis is destroyed by Imperius Quintus during the last combat phase
With the 6th turn over we count up VP and the imperials win 28 to 25, a close run thing!
Updated map: loyalists 2, traitors 0
