I was running two lists, both made up on the fly. I had little experience with my Aby T4, and the one time I played pLylyth… well… you’ll see. It wasn’t pretty. I also didn’t have my camera, so I’ll be picking a random photo that best represents the general feel of each game. Enjoy.
– Shredder x4
Striders + UA
Rawr. Or so I’d hoped. Boy, was I wrong.
His list consisted of:
Bane Thralls (max) + UA
I ran Aby T4, because. I have no idea why. Around Turn 2, I tried to use my Angel’s animus to shove his models off one of the control flags, but not quite far enough. He had to be more than 4″ and the animus pushes only 3, so no cigar. Around Turn 3, my Seraph decides to shoot Gaspy. I roll a 1 for the strafe shot, getting to take 2 total. I do 12 damage on the first hit, and take Gaspy to 2 HP the next shot. Whoa.
I then backed my Carnivean out of melee with a Nightwretch and Bane Thrall in order to spray Gaspy. The free strikes take out my Mind. One less die to roll to hit with RAT 4 against DEF 15. Ouch. I roll a 10. *headdesk*.
The next turn he proceeds to kill everything but Aby. She charges a Combine member, kills it and camps 4 FURY…. because? He wins by scenario for a higher ranking (which would ultimately win him the tournament).

Game 2 vs. Nate, the Press Ganger
His list? Painful:
Arcane Tempest Gun Mages
Stormblades + UA
Aiyana and Holt
I used pLylyth this time since nate had just lost to an Aby T4 list. I wasn’t going to be mean… He kept Temporal Barrier up all game, and then on feat turn, left me with Lylyth, a Shredder, and two Striders.
That’s all I’m going to say on the subject. I shouldn’t be so nice.
|Guess who I am. HINT: Not the guy with a gun.|
|Oh yeah? You wanna go? Let’s fiiiieeeeee!|
