MECH ATTACK – Laitu & Zaitu against giant killer robots from outerspace.

This scenario came out of us having many AK-47 republic figures and a few SF ones. However looking back on it why do aliens always attack the developed world – surely, logically invading a lower tech, war torn region where you can recurit you local auxillairies from resistance movement, secure raw materials and have defeat the locals more easily makes sense?

Combined Earth forces of Laitu and Zaitu

As dawn breaks over a small insignificant border town a report from a militia recon unit reaches the slumbering ears of the commanding officer .

Not being a man to be taken for a fool he immediately put’s the entire recon patrol on a charge .

“Giant Robots indeed”, Just at that moment the ground begins to shake and the light from the sun is obscured by something very, very big.

The town is called Lay-bu-tu.


The county Laitu


Zaitu ever alert to dangers have their own recon units on the ground .Immediately phone lines between Zaitu and Laitu light up – their Presidents negotiating a united strike force.

So far the invaders have only taken 3 casualties (tanks and an infantry – mainly from SF attack.)  All but a couple of miltia have been destroyed (and the surivviors are  sitting under mechs letting rip with their AKs amd FN FALs but doing no damage) with the invader infantry invested in the town.

Of the reserves many casaulties have been taken but 2 of actual Mechs have broken down and are now sitting ducks (sitting ducks with tank shells bouncing off them but still.) The attack chopper arrived but was destroyed by an orbitals trike. Neither of the local airforces have turned up (must be dog-fighting starfighters somewhere.)

Personally (and I’m commanding the Earthers) I think I’ll need some REAL luck to win this one.


Earth forces score a rare hit! Viva Zaitu! Up the Revolution Laitu!
