Cygnar VS Searforge - Constance VS Durgen

So Journeyman has crept up to 35 points.  Josh brought Constance, preferring to stick with learning the odd un-Cygnar caster, While Jer brought out Durgen Madhammer with a lot of heavies.  Terrain was dictated loosely by throwing a couple of handfulls of dice at the table and putting terrain where they landed.  We decided on Killing Fields for the Scenario from MK2.

Cygnar was given deployment when Durgen won the roll.  Here's the lists:
Cygnar:
Constance Blaize
Squire
2 Chargers (one a proxied hunter)
Gallant
Lancer

Reinholt
Journeyman (proxied Sryker)
Arlan
2 Storm Towers
min Stormguard

Searforge:
Durgen Madhammer
Rockram
Basher

Steinhammer
Basher

Lesser Warlock Brun
Lug heavy warbeast

Herne and Jon
Min Forgeguard

Cygnar's plan:
Constance wanted to stay back until absolutely necessary, using the lancer to throw boosted Sunbursts into the fray, with Reinholt to add a die on the damage.  The Stormguard would chew up charge lanes, to allow Gallant a well timed charge.  Arlan would powerboost when needed, and grant evasive action to Gallant if the opportunity arose for an assassination run.  All the while, the Storm Towers would try to take out Steinhammer and disrupt Durgen's heavies.

Searforge's Plan:
Not sure, but I think he just wanted to take advantage of the large amount of health and heavy armour to keep up pressure while Durgen carpet Bombed the snott out of my guys.

Turn 1:
Cygnar ran everything and threw a sunburst to no effect at Durgen, while .

Searforge took advantage of his +4" to deployment to get onto the objective in the middle right off the bat.  Then, under his feat, he carpet bombed and took off 9 hitpoints from Constance with a high boosted damage roll, and in the process disabled the gun on one of the chargers and got one Stormguard.

Turn 3:
Cygnar responded by Charging the Stormguard and Gallant in, but not doing enough damage to the basher on the objective to disable anything. The 3 combined to pow 15 did 3 damage on 3 dice.  The lancer Also charged in and did 2 damage to the cortex on the basher. Constance Popped her feat and received Arcane shield from the Journeyman.  The charger without a gun stood in the way of the forgeguard who just wouldn't die to several pow 10 e-leaps.


Searforge killed all of the stormguard, fuelling the feat, but was careful to not provide a charge lane to Durgen.  Prontoed basher landed way in Cygnar territory, taking out the squire and leaving the damaged charger with only 3 boxes.  The rockram charges and between it and the basher, the Lancers is stripped of its shield, but fortunately the Basher looses its cortex.

Turn 4:
This is where it got Muddy.  Constance fuelled up a Charger, and Arlan boosted Gallant.  Gallant got a focus from accumulator and without thinking, Josh beat on the basher till it broke instead of the rockram, and in the process moved out of reach of the Rockram.  Constance charged the rockram, without activating Reinholt... Doh!  And without Flank... Doh!  And sat there camping 6 focus, with Arcane Shield and praying (Arm 25).  Her charge only did 3 damage to the Jack, and Arlan had powerboosted, so his disrupting spray was no longer available.  The Charger and Stormtower had a good turn and killed Lug... or so I thought, a rehash resulted in foggy memories on numbers and Jeremy was convinced it wasn't dead, but had 2 hit poxes left.  A spectacular failure of a turn though the picture below was taken when Lug was dead.


Searforge then Used Brun to heal Lug, who then charged Gallant, and hit him with his 2 fists, allowing him to throw Gallant at Constance, which knocked her down.  Durgen shot her, for 1 point of Damage, then the Rockram hit her once to finish the deal.
Victory Searforge.

Post Game Thoughts From Cygnar:
With an early shot on Constance, I had a few significant errors that I paid for.  First, I should have used the feat turn to heal Constance and back her out instead of into the fray with 3 heavies.  Also, the Turn where she charged in, the order of Activation should have been different, Gallant should have remained in melee with the Rockram and instead of beating on the Basher, the Rockram should have felt the pain to get rid of the only significant POW Durgen had.  Once the Rockram was disabled, Constance could have camped her focus with Arcane shield to neutralize a lot of threats.  Lastly, the bear should have been dead, which we figured out in later discussion, but in the end it was my mistakes that led to Constance's demise.  Good Game Jer!
