Betrayal at Badab: Iblis Will Burn!

Betrayal at Badab Battle Report: Mantis Warriors vs Fire Hawks on the Agri-World of Iblis.

Earlier this summer I ran a game of Betrayal at Badab for a friend. He played the Fire Hawks while I fielded the Mantis Warriors. The scenario takes place on the Agricultural World of Iblis. The Mantis Warriors and the Fire Hawks had been in a protracted battle for the planet. The Mantis Warriors had a limited force to defend Iblis and had been forced to rely on hit and run tactics to keep the Fire Hawks pinned down. Frustrated by the inability to force the Mantis Warriors into open battle where they could be wiped out, the Fire Hawks chapter master sends a force led by the 8th company captain Knight-Captain Elam Courbray to draw out the Mantis Warriors. The Fire Hawks begin burning crop fields and farms as well as attacking the human population in order to force the Mantis Warriors to reveal themselves.

Near the end of the battle, the Fire Hawks have taken heavy losses, but drive off the Mantis Warriors who are forced to withdraw. The dreadnoughts on both sides are only able to exchange a few shots before the battle ends,
