To think the Governor General's Secretary promoted you, a humble doctor to field duty and helping us investigate the ressurectionist! I know from the moment I saw you that you had great imitative..." As Captain Feckler kept droning on about the "honour" Lucius had bestowed upon him, McMourning could just gnash his teeth in frustration. It was supposed to be a simple stroll to gather a few supplies he had buried out here, but Lucius had insisted he bring the captain for his protection and keeping his disguise as the new consultant to the Guild on the undead. It wasn't until about the third time that Sebastian poked him that he realized that someone was talking to him, well someone other than Feckler. "Sir, there appears to be mercenaries ahead of us, we think they are heading towards us" the Austringer reported. "How do I keep getting myself into these messes" McMorning thought. Strategy: Turf War My list Guild McMorning  -On the Click -Plastic Surgery -Evidence Tampering Sebastian  -Lead Lined Coat Captain Feckler (Exorcist)  -Lead Lined Coat Zombie Chinchilla  2x Nurses  2x Witchlings  1x Austringer  Schemes: Out Flank (declared), Distract Opponent: Viktoria of Ashes -- 6 Pool +Sisters in Spirit  +Survivalist  +Synchronized Slaying  Viktoria of Blood  +Mark of Shez'uul  +Sisters in Fury  Vanessa  +Howling Wolf Tattoo  Hans  Student of Conflict  Abomination  2x Ronin  Schemes: Body Guard (Hans), Line in the Sand Deployment (since the table was 4x4 we marked off 6" border around the table as a deadzone): -I deployment my force in the southwest corner of the map. My thoughts were to move the austringer, 1 nurse and witchling to hold the flank and the rest of my force to go for the center and see what happens. -My opponent deployed his Ronin's across from my force, The Viktoria's and the student of conflict in the middle and the rest of his force in the NE corner opposite of me. Turn 1: "You men!" Feckler shouted, "head along the flank and make sure no one else comes, we will proceed to the objective!" "Maybe you should join the men on the flank" McMourning suggested, "it could get too dangerous for a man of your importance..." "Nonsense" Feckler replied, "I clearly need to remain at your side to protect you. I will provide a distraction and let you do your science" First turn saw the Viktoria's and their crew zoom towards the center. I really should have deployed my main force more towards the center as I really felt like I barely advanced this turn. Han's took a pot shot at a witching, but between a nurse and the other wicthing it barely slowed my force down. Turn 2: McMourning saw one of the Victoria's dart into a barn near where he buried his supplies. Looking back he saw Feckler lagging behind. Now's my chance he thought. So McMorning took a walk action and I decided to try and scalpel sling my way towards the center. I flipped the red joker and put McMorning into base to base with the Student of Conflict. I then missed my last attack on her :S. I kind of realized putting my master so far forward might have been a mistake when the Viktoria of blood came after McMorning bringing him down to 2 wounds (I burnt a ton of soul stones trying to stay alive :S). Luckily the close quarters of the barn didn't allow more models to engage McMorning. The Exorcist managed to peg The Viktoria of Ash and pin her and the Austringer bunched Sebastian just close enough to the center to help me score. both get 1 point from strategy 1 - 1 (tie) Turn 3: "Maybe we can talk about th...." McMourning began. Well David got initiative and the first thing he did was take out McMorning . I moved the zombie chinchilla though within 2" of the Viktoria of Blood, the student of conflict and Vanessa and poisoned them all. Vanessa healed the entire crew by 4 with a healing flip, but because of Sebastian's abilities I did 3 damage to the student of conflict (who tried to kill the poor Chichilla and surprisingly failed). The Viktoria of Ash then charged Sebastian and nearly killed him. My nurse healed him to full, but alas I didn't manage to dispel the paralyze with the wicthling . the exorcist distracted one of the Ronin's and the wicthling and nurse I had on the flank distracted the other one. both get 1 point from strategy and I get one point from distraction 3 - 2 (my favour). Turn 4: During the upkeep phase the poison finished off the student of conflict. My opponent not wanting to take more poison by Sebastian started with Viktoria of Ash Dragon Bited Sebastian killing him and then he accomplished the other Viktoria who charged my nurse killed her . I activated my other nurse who kept the Ronin paralyzed. The other Ronin failed to harm my exorcist and Vanessa dropped a scheme marker. My wicthling removed one of theirs. My opponent reveals bodyguard on Hans both get 1 point from strategy, I get 1 point from distraction and David gets 1 point from bodyguard 5 - 4 (my favour) Turn 5: One again Viktoria of Ash uses dragon bite this time to remove my wicthling. My burn a ton of cards but manage to keep my exorcist alive. The nurse who was keeping the ronin locked down heads towards the center and I use the austringer to nudge her to within scoring distance. both get 1 point from strategy I get 1 point from distraction and David gets 1 point from bodyguard 7 - 6 (my favour) Turn 6: We both forgot that schemes/strategies cap out points, so this turn didn't see that much. I try to move the wicthling to the center to score with the exorcist, but my opponent uses Vanessa to kill the wicthling not letting me do the same trick twice. I get 2 points from Out Flank and David gets 1 point from Bodyguard and 2 from Line in the Sand. 9 - 9 (tie) After game thoughts: I'm surprised at the end I tied that. I had 2 models left at the end of the game and only killed 2 of my opponents models. I mainly tried just to live through his attacks and take schemes, but I probably should have spent a little more resources to either killing a few of his models (especially Vanessa, she is mean at the center line) or locking down more models with the exorcist. Also throwing McMorning that far forward was a mistake. The nurses were amazing and I like the exorcist. He was pretty tanky, can semi lock down a target at range and I think with McMorning and plastic surgery I can make him (and McMorning) pretty killy. Though again didn't really try to kill models this game. McMourning came to, only to be greeted by the face of Feckler staring down at him. "McMourning, good to see you have finally woken up! Unfortunately it seems our positions got reserved and you ended up being the distraction. It seems those Viktoria's really needed to...well use the facilities. The inside of it now....well it ain't pretty with all the corpses and broken bottles and everything. I have no idea what they were doing in there, but who knows what a woman does when she heads into an outhouse, am I right or am I right? McMourning was trying to re-embrace unconsciousness; but unfortunately he caught the end of Feckler's rant. "Oh, a messenger came from Lucius and he has another assignment for us, I guess we're going be travelling together for awhile". 2 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
