Battle Report #2 Cygnar Major Victoria Haley vs RoS Issyria, Sibyl of Dawn

Hello friends,
time for a second battle report on this blog and this time Swans faced Retribution of Scyrah in a 75 pts Steam Roller 2017 game. My opponent tutor was Elros. The game was more of a learning one since it was my first game (can you believe it?!) against Retribution plus I wanted to learn and thus while discussing some stuff we paused the clock. In addition, this was my first game with this list and with a colossal. So, here are the lists:

Elara, Tyro of the Third Chamber - PC: 4

Arcanist Mechanik - PC: 2

Mage Hunter Strike Force - Leader & 9 Grunts: 16

-    Mage Hunter Strike Force Commander - PC: 4


So, I have made one, but major mistake while deploying according to Elros and I must agree. I put the Stormclad on the right with the Hurricane and the Firefly while leaving the right flank with only an Ironclad and Thorn. So what I should have done is put the Stormclad on the left flank with the Ironclad. and fight on the right with Hurricane and the Firefly. Elros decided to go first.


Deployment
So the first round we saw running, a lot of it. After Elros run up with his tree hugging elves did some "magic mother fucker" it was my turn to move. I put Arcane Shield and Evasive on Hurricane, pushed a little bit too far with the energized Stormclad and the Firefly followed behind. The Ironclad on the left flank went for the zone, Thorn joined him and when Haley moved up she cast Arcane Bolt through him to kill one of the Mage Hunters and Feat baby. Thorn repositioned thanks to reaction drive.
After the first round
 In his second turn Elros killed my Ironclad with his Mage Hunters and jacks clearing the zone and on the right flank he managed to put some shots and knock down Stormclad. Both the Stormclad and Hurricane got blinded meaning no shooting for me. In return I killed a Chimera with the Stormclad and two Mage Hunters. With the Hurricane blinded I could not unleash hell with my guns so after much deliberation and discussing the plan with my opponent to to move up, try to grab one of them pesky elves and throw him at his leader. Did not work out actually and the irritated Hurricane smashed the poor guy with his fist. On the left flank Thorn got into position to kill Elara by a sneaky Arcane Bolt through his arc node but three ones did not make it happen. He repositioned a bit back. The Firefly got more to the middle of the table and the Mechanics went up to contest a bit.
After the second round


Left side


I see you Banshee, but you see me also
Now, Elros used his Feat and started the carnage. Needless to say, he wiped out my left flank and on the right almost killed Hurricane (he was standing on 4 boxes). In my turn I repaired the colossal a bit outlined the rest of my plan to Elros and would have went with it if it wasn't for my opponent who reminded me that a) his caster is in the middle of the table with one focus, b) colossal can shoot while in melee (stupid me) c) that by trying to kill Banshee and maybe the Mage Hunters, I will lose the next round. So, I took his advice and started shooting Issyria with my guns. Two shots and she was dead.
Game End

Well, Elros is a great sport. The game was really fun and he showed me some tips and tricks. It was a great learning curve experience. Hopefully, next time I will be able to read the situation better and come up with better plans of my own. Practice makes perfect. :)

Warmachine & Hordes online community... to contribute or not...

Hello friends,
for some time now, I have been thinking about writing a post about the online Warmachine & Hordes community. However, I could not find the proper questions I would like to ask and try to answer. I did not know if I should actually even produce this kind of an analysis that by all means is going to be really subjective in nature. Some people might feel offended others might start to argue that I am not right when it comes to the conclusions but then I remembered one good ol' video... plus we basically have the freedom of speech...


So, if you have understood anything from the delusional tinkering I have written above and seen the short video... let's begin.
I have been blogging for about 6 years now. There have been some up & down moments during the process itself but I can say that for the above mentioned period I have been a part of the tabletop bloggers network (we are not a cult). For about 2,5 years I have been slowly focusing on Warmachine & Hord…
