Battle for Stones River 2014 Scenario Six
Use deployment map: Hammer and Anvil (page 119) and setup any player owned fortifications. Players cannot move terrain to make room for fortifications. Prior to deployment of forces, roll for Warlord Traits and Psychic Powers accordingly. Players roll off. The winner may choose to deploy 1st or 2nd. Player deploying 1st deploys their entire force except infiltrators and those units held in reserve. The player deploying 1st also takes 1st turn unless the opposing player can steal the initiative.
This scenario is won by completing the following objectives. Players earn points for each objective. These points are called Battle Points. These are the totals that are placed on player score sheets.
Primary (11 Battle Points) Hold ground… Each player chooses two terrain pieces in their opponent’s half of the table prior to deployment (may not be the bridge). These are the player’s objectives and must be held with the majority of a scoring unit on the terrain feature with no enemy units contesting on the feature. The player that holds more of their objectives than their opponent earns the objective. If players hold the same amount of terrain features then each player earns 5 Battle Points. If neither player holds a terrain feature then no Battle Points are earned.
Secondary (5 Battle Points) Hold the bridge… the player that holds the bridge at the end of the game with the majority of a scoring unit without an enemy unit contesting, earns the objective.
Tertiary (2 Battle Points) Slay the Warlord, both players may earn this objective. (2 Battle Points) Line Breaker
