Battle Report

As promised, here’s the Battle Report featuring my terrain set. All the feedback thus far is that it’s fun to play on and looks great, so Mission Accomplished!

About the Advanced Maneuvers Channel:

Advanced Maneuvers is a local group of awesome guys that have broken into the video battle report scene. Their format and production quality is top-notch, and it’s very easy to follow what’s going on. This format is what I’m hoping to emulate when I eventually start filming games.

You can meet Kevin and Herman, two of the guys behind the AM channel on this chat with Codex Dan and Miranda (WargamerGirl) as they discuss the topic of Faction Hopping.

This past weekend, there was a 35-pt 2-list event.  As I mentioned earlier, I took Legion.

The event had 20+ attendees, so there was a split into an upper and lower bracket after the first round.  There were trophies for the upper tier and coins for the lower.  I liked this approach, since it meant that the ‘game’ wasn’t over for anyone that didn’t manage to win their first game.

Anyway, I took notes and pictures of my turns during the games I played.

For those that want to skip to a particular game, here’s an index:

  1. Thagrosh1 vs Skarre2
  2. Thagrosh1 vs Hexeris2
  3. Thagrosh1 vs Kaya2
  4. Lylyth1 vs Rahn
  5. Thagrosh1 vs Father Lucant

Let’s fire up the post-game over-analysis machine, shall we?

This week, I was able to get a game in against relatively new player, Justin.  He was running Retribution, using the following list:

Kaelyssa, Night’s Whisper (*7pts)
* Discordia (10pts)
* Phoenix (10pts)
* Sylys Wyshnalyrr, the Seeker (2pts)
Dawnguard Sentinels (Leader and 9 Grunts) (9pts)
* Dawnguard Sentinel Officer & Standard (2pts)
Houseguard Halberdiers (Leader and 9 Grunts) (7pts)
* Houseguard Halberdiers Officer & Standard (2pts)
Houseguard Thane Solo (2pts)
Mage Hunter Infiltrators (Leader and 9 Grunts) (8pts)
* Eiryss, Mage Hunter Commander (3pts)
Arcanist (1pts)
Arcanist (1pts)

We were playing on a white snow table, which will make some of his white primed models hard to see, so bear with me.

I won the roll-off, and had Justin set up first, since none of my models were unpacked, and all of his were.  Not a very tactical choice, but a good one, since we had about a hour and a half to get the game in before store close.

Justin set up his battlegroup and Arcanists in the middle, Sentinels on his left, Halberdiers and Thane on his right.

I split my WGI around Hark, the Behemoth and Black Ivan, and tossed the Destroyer on the right side of the pack.  Greylords went on my far right flank.

Justin’s Infiltrators set up as far from the Greylord’s magical sprays as possible.

(Below, the Infiltrators have already run on Justin’s turn 1)
