This reminds me of a session I once played against someone:
If I remember correctly, I had 16 civilians armed with only knives, and limited only to knives; as per rules of the match I stated.
My opponent had about 8-12 soldiers, some of them in flying armor, and armed with non-HE weapons, but still projectile/plasma weapons.
...Anyway, the battle was in a city-scape-type level. My guys started inside the buildings, and my opponent was rushing in from the other side. He was using strategy and squad-based tactics, whereas I was finding ways to avoid losing my men, as well as employing rabbit-techniques. Or simply put, run faster than your enemy, and hit&run them.
Interesting thing, my "sniper" managed to spot just about everyone in the field, and run away from view, commanding everyone to separate to different buildings and "claw" their way into them as ambush methods. For a few turns, neither of us knew what each of us were doing; that is, until one of my rebels spotted a blue-trooper, fortunately, my guy wasn't spotted, so he took the opportunity and slit the trooper's throat. Within that remaining time, he hid inside a fort, backed up by 2 other rebels. As you may have figured, he was now being persued. Everyone held position until news comes about our rebels in the mini fort. The battle was pretty interesting, especially considering the troopers weren't allwed to use "excessive" force, that being HE weapons and grenades.
Cutting the scenario short, the 3 rebels at that fort managed to kill 3 more troopers, before being sniped by a distant sniper that destroyed the stairs connected to the the platform he was standing on; thus cutting off any assault, as he plucks my men off.
I managed to mis-lead and dodge for some time until after 3 more kills on his end, as well as 5 more casualties on my end narrowed the battle to a heat of finding out how to kill the last of his men. It was then, at the end, that I discover that he was at an unreachable spot for my last kamikaze.
The final score was 0 civvies to 2 or 3 troopers. And remember, the beginning was 16 blade-armed civvies against approx. 12 troopers.
Not bad for a rebellion.
But looking back at the replays, it was more reminiscant of Resident Evil, if anything else.
