The Forcing of Pithy Gulch
An All Quiet on the Martian Front Battle Report

In the far west, the Martians have been held back by a series of fortifications at strategic locations in the various passes, ravines and gorges. Concrete has been the greatest ally against the Martian as it was nearly indestructible to heat rays. And though plentiful, there was never enough. While losing any state was politically unacceptable to Theodore Roosevelt, the concrete factories of Portland and Benicia were considered of strategic importance.
"Sir, he has arrived." The lieutenant stood at perfect attention waiting for his commanders response.
"He has a name Harmon, just like everyone else. We don't need to mystify Captain Patton like some cheap dime store novel villain."

Nice report and a great game. Yes, the American heavy howitzers can be devastating with that +9 power! Although, personally I'd prefer to see the bombardment zone larger instead.

And I'm wondering if big things like Overseers and Land Ironclads ought to count more toward the break points than just as another unit? We'll have to see if the 2nd Edition rules make any changes to things like that.
