Mercenaries won the roll and gave Legion deployment.  Mercenary deployed the Galleon (the Sanctuary marker is being used as a proxy).  The two factions faced off, centred on the edge of their sides of the table.  The Sea Dogs advanced deployed up 16" behind a wall.  First turn, Legion ran everything, putting Thagrosh, Typhon and shepherds behind a wall.  Mercenaries advanced, thinking they may have range with the Buccaneers to knockdown some beasts, but the first one failed, so the other ran.

The Seadogs stayed behind the wall, hoping to get a charge off next turn (using Mr. Walls' No Quarter).  The Galleon activated and shot Angelion a number of times, putting some damage on her.  Legion got a free move for Angelion for taking damage and then she charged the Galleon along with another heavy beast and the two of them wailed on the Galleon, taking out his right arc.  Typhon advanced.

Mercenaries activated and Meg healed 3 damage points on the Galleon, fixing up its' right arm.  The Galleon activated, shot his harpoon at one warbeast, dragging it in for a follow up melee attack. Then it did a sweep power attack, killing the Scythean and putting some damage on Angelius.  Then the sea dogs charged with No Quarter doing a little bit of damage on the Angelius.  Then Montador put up broadsides, allowing the Galleon to fire his harpoon again dragging in the nephlim and beating him with a follow up melee attack.  Then Montador popped his feat, forcing any beasts ending their movement in his control range to be knocked down.

Legion then stayed out of Montador's control range, moving the Typhon up and taking a pot shot at Galleon.  Angelius did some damage to the Galleon and Thagrosh killed some Sea Dogs.

Mercenaries activate Dirty Meg and she heals a very sad 1 damage point on the Galleon.  Boo..  So, in a desperate turn, the Sea Dogs kill some Shepherds and do a few points of damage on the Angelius.  Then two Buccaneers, Doc Killingsworth, Lord Rockbottom, Dougal and Montador all take potshots at Angelius and do only a few points of damage.  Even the Galleon makes a shameful roll against Angelius, only doing a few points of damage.

Then Legion healed their beasts and scrapped the Galleon and killed a few Sea Dogs.  Then Thagrosh attempted a charge attack vs Montador, doing 11 damage.  Sadly his charge ended only within range of his reach weapon and he only had one fury remaining.  He then activated his Angelius and moved it out of melee with the Sea Dogs, Buccaneers and Doc Killingsworth.  It took 5 weak free strikes and finally died.

Mercenaries responded by charging Thagrosh with one Buccaneer and attacked with another, who knocked him down.  Then Montador, with 5 focus and Lucky Charm on him from Reindholt, finished off Thagrosh for game!

Good game Adrian!
