So what game managed to get me excited about gaming again. Well its none other than 'Beyond the Gates of Antares'.
As I am sure you will be well aware, Warlord Games is trying to spread the word about the game so they have decided to give 8 clubs around the world the chance to play the game completely for free and all we need to do is let you fine people about how we get on.

|Lornes starter army|
At the time of choosing, I knew nothing about any of the factions and decided on Isorians primarily based on aesthetics.
Medi drone, +2 troopers.
Spotter drone, plasma lance.
Leader/slung net ammo.
Camo drone, shield drone.
We kicked off our gaming with a night playing the Drone Integration Scenario which Warlord were good enough to send us and everyone who applied for the Antares Initiative.
|C3 Strike troops teleport to the planet surface.|
|Initial Set Up including some great scenery sent to us by Warlord.|
All the C3 players used a similar tactic and had one squad run for the the drone while the other squad held off the Ghar. We did have mixed success with this with that tactic most of us got to the Drone intact but Richard did have some problems with a single trooper being pinned down in front of the drone for 2 turns.

|Sometimes the plan didn't work well.|
|Many pins were placed on the defenders.|

Thanks for reading about our first month in the world of Antares. We will be back next month with some painting guides for our forces.
