Good games

Went to the last Battleground before the summer break today, managing to fit in two really good games against Jonathan.  I like playing against Jonathan, as he has learned the game really well; better than me in a lot of ways.  He also knows his armies (Retribution and Skorne), very well, so playing against him tests me a lot.

Playing two games, we kicked off with my 35pt Morty list, as mentioned previously; against his 35pt Vyros list.

  • Vyros
  • Phoenix
  • Manticore
  • Mage Hunter Strike Force
  • Mage Hunter Commander
  • Dawnguard Sentinels + UA
  • Sylys Wyshnalyrr

It was a really close game, with the Deathjack munching his way through the Mage Hunters.  Assisted by the Stalkers and Sirens, it was looking to go my way.  Sadly, I got a little over confident and missed an Overrun movement; leaving Morty exposed to the charge of Vyros.  Even with two Free Strikes from Harrower and Warwitch Siren; they couldn’t quite take him out.  Morty dead in a couple of hits, having already taken damage from the Phoenix.

Second game, this time switching to Scavvy; against Xerxis.  Scavvy was running Tier 2 list, with 2 x McThralls + Necrosurgeon/Stitch Thralls.  2 x Nightwretch, 2 x Stalkers, 2 x Warwitch Sirens.  Jonathan had Xerxis, 2 Titan Gladiators, Nihilators, Cetratii and Cyclops Gladiator.  It was a protracted affair, with the McThralls basically slugging it out with anything that came in range.  I am a little disappointed with some things, but definitely need some improvements with this Caster; despite the last minute win.

Good mornings gaming, topped off with a quick couple of turns of Game of Thrones.
