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.
- 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.
