The Gray Deat has a minor advantage in troops, but the definitly worse terrain at their hand. Coming from the west side, they have to wade through water and assault some fortified positions. The Marik mercs on the other side are to defend a wide area, splitting their forces.

Combined rules: Classic Battletech + Alpha Strike
This match was nice to play and had some really decent tactical approaches. And we tried something new! We mixed the movement rules of Classic Battletech with the firing and damage rules of Alpha Strike. So we made use of the huge terrain, while combat was fast paced. I enjoyed this variant very much, while my opponent - even if he remained victorious - was undecided. In his eyes this was not fish nor flesh. Anyhow, I liked it a lot and I thank "Icke" for this great fight night, which took us from 04:00 pm until 01:30 am! :-)
