I’m going first.

Deployment :

Thyra casts Occultation on left cavalry, Silence of Death on right cavalry and Gates od Death on herself.
Everything cleverly runs forward.

Halfjacks runs near my Daughters.
Hurricane shot at Halfjacks on the back arc and killed few Daughters from blast dmg.
Stormwall put 2x covering fire and pod.
Centruion with Polarity Field advances forward.
Darius casts Fortify on Stormwall, Junior casts Arcane Shield on Hurricane.

End of 1st round :

I see an option for CK – let’s try.
Thyra casts Silence of Death on BoM and she FEATed.
Nicia killed pod, Flamebringers just run near Collosals to block their movement.
Choir said Battle to Jacks.
Now BoM is ready for CK attempt.
He charged Stormwall, hit and side step to reach Darius.
I have three attacks with pow 20 against Darius.
All I need is “6” to hit.
First attack… miss.
Second attack… miss..come on..
Third attack… MISS!
It was very unlucky, but I have to keep playing.
Daughters from ambush killed Jakes – Centurion inert.
At least Daughters have proven themselves.

Darius casts Full Throttle and few Jackhammers on Stormwall, which destroyed BoM.
Hurricane did Sweep power attack.
In combination with Full Throttle, Hurricane massacre Flamebringers.
Unfortunately, no one has succeeded in contesting my two zones.

2-0 on the scenario.

End of 2nd round :

Now I need 3 more points to win.
Thyra stayed in her zone, Temple Guards stayed in the right circle.
Flamebringers destroyed pod and that’s all.

I won by scenario 5-0.

A few words after game :

  • Thyra is fantastic caster!
    She is perfect on SR17.
  • Two Colossus under Darius are too much ARM and boxes for Thyra to destroy.
  • The only chance to win such matches is to try to score points in the opponent’s turns.

  1. As a thought in this one how about dropping the Dervish, putting in Eilish Garrity so you’ve potentially got puppet master handy for these sort of assassination attempts then using the renaming 2pts for either a 2nd Mechanic & 2nd Wrack or drop the ones you’ve got for a full TFG unit? Was a great battle report though

    1. Eilish is a nice solo. But 5pts for Puppet Master is expensive thing.
      But probably it is worth considering, thanks for idea!
