TRANSFORMERS G1: Quest for Energon

Yesterday I played my first game with a friend the TRANSFORMERS miniatures.
I was the Disctructor player while my friend was the Autorobot player.

There were 4 energon cube objective markers.
In the scenario at the start of the turn if any models (and no enemy models) were within 2" of any energon cubes the player could collect 1 victory point and an extra cube for his energon pool.

Background:

Memor was charged by megatron to recover some energon cubes lost during a retreat. Unfortunatelly some Autorobot lead by Tigre are trying to recover the energon cubes too.
Memor: <<IENA. EJECT. OPERATION: RECOVER ENERGON CUBE>>.
Iena: >>Roooowrrrrr!!<<
Maggiolino: "Guys, I think we have company!"
Tigre: "Distructor! Prepare for the battle!"
Memor:  <<AUTOROBOT DETECTED. TARTAR, GUFO, SCARLET. EJECT. OPERATION: RECOVER ENERGON CUBES, SECONDARY OPERATION: DESTROY AUTOROBOT>>. 

The deployment of the transformers:


The Factions:

DISTRUCTOR 50pts:
Tartar (10)
Gufo (10)
 Memor (15)
Iena (7)
 Scarlet (8)


AUTOROBOT 50pts:
Tigre (10)
 Maggiolino (7)
Falco (11)
Cammello (8)
 Ariete (14)


The Autorobot have the initiative, they move toward the energon cubes. Cammello Claim an energon cube. The Distructor move too, Scarlet and Iena claim two energon cubes.







Tigre defeat Gufo in close combat. Tartar is defeated too by some good shots from the other Autorobot.

Tigre: "Well done! Gufo and Tartar will not bother us anymore!" ๐Ÿ˜‰

Maggiolino is hit by Iena and he is down.
Maggiolino: "Ouch! I'm seriously damaged! Guys, I could not help you anymore!" ๐Ÿ˜–

Tigre and Ariete charge Memor and defeat him.
Ariete: "Now stay down, big bad guy!" ๐Ÿ˜
Memor: <<ALERT! SERIOUS DAMAGE RECEIVED! RETREATING SUGGESTED. GUFO AND TARTAR RETREAT. SCARLET AND IENA CONTINUE WITH YOUR MISSION.>>

Cammello charge Scarlet, both the transformers are damaged but still functioning.
Cammello: "Take this punch, Scarlet! Ah! You still Standing! You are more resistant than it looks, little robot!"
Scarlet: "Autorobot scum! You will see who is Scarlet!" ๐Ÿ˜ก

Scarlet is finally defeated by Cammello and Ariete.
Ariete: "What a shame, Cammello, you needed my help to finish that little scoundrel! Maybe you are too old for this game! ๐Ÿ˜„
Cammello: "Ahhh, Shut up, Ariete!" ๐Ÿ˜ค


The Autorobots focus their fire on the last Distructor: Iena. They damage him, but Cammello and Tigre suffer some damage too.
Tigre: "Come on guys, still a little effort and we will finish that metallic beast!" ๐Ÿ˜ 

Finally the Autorobot defeat Iena, winning the game.
Tigre: "Well done guys! Commander will be proud of us, we completed our mission! Now we must recover the stolen energon cubes and repair our good Maggiolino." ๐Ÿ˜ƒ

After the end of the six turn, the Distructor collected 7 victory points and the Autorobot collected the same number, however all the Distructor were defeated, then the Autorobot won the scenario.
