2.CATAGORIES DEFINED (Details matter. Read carefully).
a. GARRISON COMMANDERS MISSION: An unidentified aggressor is conducting a series long range reconnaissance patrols in your Metal Garrisons area of operations. The aggressor is highly mechanized and well trained. However, your garrison has received a report which identifies the location of the aggressor patrol base. Initiate Operation ALLOY STRIKE. Move your garrison to attack and destroy this patrol base as quickly as possible.
b. MILITIA SQUAD LEADERS MISSION: Same as above, but the fast moving and stealthy Metal Militia has been given a special task. While the local Metal Garrison moves to destroy the aggressor patrol base, your Metal Militia Squad must discover the identity of the aggressor. Capture an officer form the aggressor force, and bring him un-hurt to the nearest Metal Legion base for identification and processing.
c. METAL REVIEW MISSION: Post reviews on entry MOCs that are eloquent, accurate, entertaining, and respectful to the builder. The format for the review is simple. State two things you LIKE about the MOC. Then state two things you do NOT LIKE about the MOC. Then state one thing that is NEITHER a like nor a dislike, but which is relevant. Ensure that you place your review on the MOC itself, AND that you cross post it to the ALLOY Review Entries the thread entitled ALLOY STRIKE Review Entries. If you do not cross post, it will not count.
