Yeah, cool armour.

Zhenya's reasoning:

These vehicles are resupply and reinforcement for the Guerrilla force we are going to fight quite soon. It seems sensible to deny them those resources.

There may be a reward for capturing/killing "Gaston".

( Also, these people were disrespectful to us, well, to Zhenya anyway... )

Mad, bad and dangerous to know... Still, it would be good to try out all these fancy new weapons and armour and whatnot. We didn't get dressed up for nuffin'

Yes, nice armor, vonPilsner. 8-)

I was waiting for Rojo or Theta to chime in; however, it looks as if the deed is done.

How good is the camo effect on Theta and Zhenya's CA? It might be useful to deploy out from the train before we start shooting.

When we go, first shot counts, and we want it.

Surprise DM's

Zhenya and Theta can use the camo as +2 for the BD surprise, considering the BD probably has the chameleon feature as well.

Sorry for the lag. Crazy week.

Quick clarifications:

Gaston hired us, right? To "chaperone" some equipment for him.
But, now it appears he's hijacking his own shipment? Is that correct?

If he's plotting against himself... then I think initiating a firefight is a bad idea.
But, I might be too late to the party to influence the outcome (darn sketchbook!)

If he said he's pay us anyway, and now he's coordinating the offloading of the vehicles...
Why would we get in a fight with his people?

Sorry, I've gone back and tried to re-read where I missed the bus... and I can't find it.

Also, according to the train map, each car is over 130m in length?
Just making sure I'm thinking in the correct scale.

The train is a bit big, probably should shrink it down some, it is long though. Maybe just cut down the size of the squares, make them half the size, 25 m, or even less at 20 m. The Technical (truck with the 50 mm auto-cannon), is still around 300 m away or very long range.

Rojo is right, the sensible course is not to get involved.

But

We organised the permits, we might get hauled in as co-conspirators.

It is possible there really are offworld business interests that "Gaston" is stealing from.

I have a nasty feeling that Armoured Car will turn up at Yerkes Creek if we let it go.

But you are right, we would be taking on a lot of enemies for a tenuous reason. Everyone should be agreed on whichever course of action we take.

I know hardrocks thinks it is better not to get involved, but will fight if I do. ( but he has a crazy plan of his own for later on, so... )

I'm hoping once the AA gun is out of the picture superior weapons and armour will prevail. With luck their morale will fail. If we start shooting, there are troops on the train, they'll probably man those MG positions and join in. These are bandits, they don't want to get pinned down until the force from Dharmasiriwardene arrives.

I resent the crazy plan bit :)

Somebody should roll the 1d6+2.

If there are troops on the train — is there a reason they haven't responded to the blockade yet? (maybe they're so far forward on the train they're just concerned with removing the debris on the tracks?)

I'm just trying to inform Rojo of all the odds involved.
As described, it's our crew of 7(?) vs 40 bandits who are working with an insider... who knows who else Gaston has "sleeping" aboard the train.
