Generally we really try to avoid having largish numbers of vehicles on
sides as the Stargrunt rules don't cope with AFV on AFV too well (after
that is what Dirtside is for). The Ambush Scenario was interesting in
it was more of a case of the Ambusher creating his plan and initial
deployment carefully. The initaiation was poor and the ambushees were
to recover reasonably well and although they lost three vehicles
disabled or
immobilised all the infantry got away clean.

The Walkers are a fun addition and are IMHO more likely to eventuate
Grav tanks!! But his is, thenk God, sci-fi so anything goes!
