Letís begin your next turn! Build another Infantry Legion on Byzantium II. Build another Flame Thrower Legion on Kish, another Infantry Legion on Kish, another Fanatic, and another Officer Corp.
All the other Houses accepted my offer for maps (hurray!).
Again, accept offers to exchange Tech for Firebirds.
Letís start with the stack of units in your new Kish Mine or in the hex southwest of it. Load your two healthiest Rebel units
aboard your Assault Lander (I selected 1-84% Healthy Rebel Flak and 1-92% Healthy Rebel Art) and jump into space.
There is a Rebel Farm southeast of your Palace about a screen and a half away (the one you bombarded last turn).
Land southwest of the Rebel Farm, unload all your units, and blast off into space. Select your Bulk Hauler (either in the Mine or on the ground southwest of the Mine), load all armored units aboard
and go into space. If you have Rebel units (I have 2 Rebel Art) transfer the 2 healthiest
to your Lander (I have 1-74% Healthy Rebel Art and 1-46% Healthy Rebel Art) and land the Bulk Hauler in the Lab.
If you have any units aboard your Bulk Hauler, unload them.
Return to space above Kish, select your loaded Shuttle, and land in the hex southwest of the Rebel Farm that is to the southeast a ways from your Palace (where you landed with the Assault Lander earlier this turn).
Unload all of your units and attack the Rebel Farm.
Ouch! A Rebel Partisan was in that stack!
Capture any units if they routed,
and move your most wounded unrouted units into the Farm, leaving at least 1 unit with your Assault Lander.
Letís return to Criticorum. Select your Vlad Cruiser and bombard the planet,
attacking the northeast city in the cluster of 4 cities (this is somewhat of a gamble, as there may be PTS weapons below!). This city is a Chemicals plant with
2 Soldier Lgns, 1 Flak, 1 ATG, and 2 Artillery (I destroyed 1 ATG during bombardment). Letís next attack the city located in the southeast of this cluster of 4 cities with our Vlad Cruiser.
This next city is a Ceramsteel Plant with 1 Soldier Lgn, 1 Flak, 1 ATG, and 2 Artillery (I damaged 1 ATG with my Vlad Cruiser). Next letís attack the city northwest in the cluster with our Vlad Cruiser. Yow! This city has 2 PTS Laser Cannons, fortunately my Cruiser was not lost (knocked down to 75% Health).
This city has 12 units: 1 Noble, 2 PTS Laser Cannons, 3 Heavy Infantry, 1 Flak, 1 Rebel Flak, 1 ATG, 1 Artillery, and 2 Rebel Art. This city is going to be a tough one to capture.
Letís try to capture the Rebel Mine on Criticorum. Select your Freighter and land in the Criticorum Farm you captured last turn. Load all of your units onto the Lander and Freighter
and blast off into space. Select only your Assault Lander, land north of the Mine,
and unload all your units. Return to space and transfer the Freighterís units to the Assault Lander
and land in the same spot.
Select your Freighter and have it return to Byzantium II. Letís take a look at the Rebel Mine on Criticorum.
There are 2 Militia and 1 damaged Artillery (62%) this should be an easy battle. Unload all your units, select all your units (the Assault Lander has 0 movement and so will not attack),
and attack the Mine (if any units routed be sure to capture them).
Make sure all your units stay with your Assault Lander.
If you captured any units next to the Farm on Criticorum last turn, move them into your Farm and Sentry to the next unit. If your next unit is on Byzantium II start scouting with your units, but letís have 2 of them start returning to the Fort. Next keep Sentrying units until we get to the end turn screen and say ĒNoĒ.
Go to Kish planetside and right click on your Shield city and click ďBuildĒ. Our Engineer is almost done. Letís build an Engineer in your Lab (you should have enough resources).
Next letís take a look at the maps we collected. Go to Hazatís homeworld of Aragon
and right click on the Agora located on their homeworld. It has 200 Metal available - letís purchase it! Next letís go to Severus and purchase 200 Metal from their Agora.
Next letís go to Delphi and purchase another 200 Metal from their Agora.
We now have enough Metal to build another Engineer! Go to your Chemicals plant on Kish and start building an Engineer in that city. Next select both of your Mines on Kish and build either an Artillery, Anti-tank Gun, or Anti-Aircraft (your choice) in each (Iíd probably go with 1 ATG and 1 Artillery since we have not come across any enemy aircraft yet).
If you would like, take a look at any other ships orbiting your planets and if you see something new, look at in the Archives.
End your turn when youíre done.
