Journeyman Update - Mercs vs Trollbloods & Legion


Last night Trollbloods faced Mercenaries and Legion faced Mercenaries.

Mercenaries:
Durgen Madhammer
Basher x2
Blaster
Thor Steinhammer
Dougal Macnaile

Trollbloods:
Gunbjorn
Slag Troll
Impaler
Bouncer
Trollkin Runeshapers

Legion:
Lylyth
Carnivean
Shredders x4
Shepherd

The first game, Durgen faced off against Gunbjorn.  First turn everything in the troll army ran and spread out wide across the board.  Durgen played more defensively by walking most of his army and taking a shot hoping for a good scatter; which didn't happen. Ultimately Durgen's decision to bunch together and play defensively lead to his doom as the Runeshapers flanked him, 2 of them survived a carpet bomb and then charged the basher.  One made the charge and knocked down both Bashers, along with Durgen.  So, Gunbjorn was able to shoot the snot out of Durgen, leaving one point on him.
Mercs then had two Bashers tied up in melee with a Runeshaper...but they both were in range to charge Gunbjorn who had stepped out of cover in order to make the shot at Durgen.  BUT, that blasted Runeshaper was standing in the way.  Durgen activated and shot Gunbjorn with Case Cracker doing 13 damage.  Then, Thor moved forward and attempted a spray attack on the Runeshaper.  He didn't put enough damage on him to kill him.  Then he pronto'd the Basher who the activated and flak fielded, but the Runeshaper passed his Tough roll.  So the Basher attacked the Runeshaper in melee ... the Runeshaper passed a second Tough roll.  Then the other Basher activated and Flak fielded ... the Runeshaper passed its third Tough roll.  Then the Basher melee attacked the Runeshaper ... the Runeshaper passed its fourth Tough roll.  This left Durgen within LOS of Gunbjorn and the Impaler, so Durgen forfeited, giving the Trollbloods a win!  Great game Nathan!



Second game Mercs faced off against Legion.  The first turn Durgen ran his army up into cover, keeping the Bashers in front of Durgen.  Lylyth ran her Shredders up in a long line across the board, keeping Lylyth and the Carnivean together behind cover.  Second turn Thor pronto'd a Basher over a wall into position for a slam on the shredder.  Dougal popped his mini feat granting +2 to friendly faction range distance.  Then the Blaster walked and took a spray shot at the Shredder and Lylyth, doing some damage to both.  Then Durgen popped his feat and took a shot at Lylyth.  Then his Basher slammed the Shredder back into Lylyth and then Flak Fielded.  The Shredder survived and Lylyth took some damage.  The other Basher positioned in front of Durgen to block LOS.  Lylyth then ran her Shredders into melee with the Blaster, Durgen and a Basher.  Then the Carnivean attacked the Basher repeatedly until it died.  Then Lylyth ran up over her cover to take a shot at a Basher.  Then she positioned another Shredder blocking a charge lane from a Basher.  Third turn, Thor spray attacked the Shredder in melee with Durgen and the Basher.  It survived, so Durgen took a free strike in order to take a Case Cracker shot at Lylyth.  It did 8 damage.  Then Durgen put Redline on the Basher, allowing it to move 7" into melee with Lylyth, finishing her off with a pow 15 Melee attack.  Good game Adrian!

  1. Just a reminder that case cracker 1/2's medium or larger base models' armour, why all the shots at small base?
