Heragul Claim a Minor Victory at Cadre 4

Phase 2: Heragul Minor Victory

Follow the Albion Campaign

“It has been said many times that war is profitable,” announced the host of the stock trading show, “but Sy-Lee-Lin, owner of the entire food production industry on Cadre 4 has found a way to get rich quick without selling weapons”

A map of the Albion prefecture materialized behind the host and the camera raced in towards Cadre 4. Surakari icons appeared around the planet.

“For six months, the corner of the Sarlet District has been under siege from an alien race called the Surakari. Despite being devastating to that region of the Empire, many citizens still don’t pay much attention to the conflict. At least for the money sector, that changed this week.”

The background changed to a Shale plant.

“Cadre 4 is the only home to the Shale plant. It is popular across the empire as a food delicacy. This week, the Surakari attacked Cadre 4 and based on rumors, they had forces on the planet for some time. Well timed reinforcements from Cadre 3 helped to break the blockade and push the Surakari back, but the attack is not over. During this attack, several transports carrying Shale exports were destroyed.”

Once again, the background morphed and a line graph appeared, with a rapidly growing line.

“It is against this backdrop that brings us back to the economy. It was during the past week that price of the Shale planet skyrocketed. Supply did not drop very much, but the panic of the invasion caused many to purchase much more than their normal amounts. The price still seems to be rising, but its a dangerous game for all involved, including Sy-Lee-Lin. Gamble on war, and eventually you lose.”

Phase 2 of the Albion Campaign has concluded. The results will be posted in a few days. Currently, the Surakari lead 5 to 4, but as with Phase 1, that does not mean the Surakari will earn another win.

Phase 3, the siege of Albion 8 will begin a little later this year.

Equipped with two high velocity Gatling Guns, the Heragul Hunter is the premiere space fighter for the Empire military. With its guns being mounted on turrets, this fighter is excellent at engaging enemy fighters, inflicting critical damage on warships, and destroying enemy missiles.

Some variations of the Heragul space fighter are capable of atmospheric operations, allowing them to function as strike bombers for ground forces. However, most Hunters used in the atmosphere are actually a completely different atmospheric only fighter that shares the Hunter name.

In the six months since the Surakari invaded the Empire, much has been learned about the performance of the Heragul Warships in prolonged space battles. The Surakari strategy of attacking in waves meant a single Heragul warship might be engaged in combat for a much longer period of time than intended. In the case of the Hammerhead, prolonged combat caused serious overheating problems with its engines and thrusters. In addition, its complex active armor system made repairs at civilian shipyards time consuming and difficult. Working overtime, the engineers at the ElSorin military shipyards found solutions to both of these problems and started producing a new variant of the Hammerhead and Mackerel Frigates.

Mackerel-Web

This pewter / 3D printed miniature contains one Heragul ElSorin frigate that can be either be built as the Hammerhead Prime configuration or the Mackerel AA Configuration. The acrylic flight stand is also included. This miniature is an alternative sculpt and uses the normal Heragul Frigate rules.

Figure Sizes:
Frigate: 2.25″ x 1″
