Destroyer of Worlds
50 pt Khador Jack Army vs. Cygnar 2 Stormwall 2 Storm Striders
This was a test of a bizarre army list for Cygnar. The concept was to put as many large bases in an army as possible. We wanted to see how well it would hold up.
Stormwall (Mr. Fist)
Stormwall (Herr Faust)
Storm Strider (DJ Slica)
Storm Strider (Daft Punk)
Cygnar set up with Striders on the ends, Walls shoulder to shoulder in the middle. Caine played quarterback. Khador put the bears on the right flanks and the jacks on the left with Da Butch.
Khador has Da Butch cast full throttle and all the jacks surge forward. The great bears run in attempt to flank.
Cygnar has Caine deadeye both Walls and the DJ strider. Their shooting takes out two great bears and scratched up black ivan.
Khador repeats turn 1, with the remaining great bear taking a large berth around Cygnar.
Cygnar concentrates fire on Black Ivan while they wheeled away from Khador while dropping more pods in the Jack wall's way.
Khador crosses the midpoint at full throttle. Great Bear moves to cut off Cygnar wheel.
Cygnar sees Caine slam the Spriggan into the Decimator. The rest of the army shoots up Torch and wounds the dog.
Khador has to stand up jacks and get under the murderous guns of the Collosals and Striders. Khador return fire is ineffective.
Cygnar unloads into the now threatening Great Bear. He takes the full wrath of a stormwall but passes all four tough saves. He is finally electrocuted by a Strider. Herr Faust finishes Black Ivan and drops a Pod to block the Butcher.
Khador shoots all the Stormpods between Butcher her Herr Faust. Butcher charges, and in 6 swings drops the Collosal. Rest of the army tries to screen the caster.
Cygnar has Mr. Fist miss 5 shots against the Butcher but drop a pod behind him. Caine fails to wound Da Butch with his guns. He does Thunderstrike the Butcher into the Stormpod to knock him down. The Striders step forward and in four shots finish the Butcher off.
In short, the Cygnar force had the same effect as the AT-ATs on Hoth. Cygnar shot up a Khador Jack list. Stormpods made the jacks stop to clear charge lane and on average Dice -5 still takes jacks out over a few turns. Infantry was shredded before it closed. Caine tossed heavy jacks like dolls. It was a curb stomp. We are trying it again to test out the Cygnar army for tourneys.

interesting, maybe try it out against some more typical tourney lists? Jack heavy butcher is not that common is it? Thinking more along the lines of winter guard death star with support etc etc. Of course with 4 covering templates among other things clogging up low arm infantry won't be hard I guess... Against eKaya or eLylyth would be more of a challenge
Were the striders very effective or effective at all against the Khador heavies? I ask, because I want to buy another one, because who doesn't want a giant lightning spewing death machine, and because my meta is super hordes heavy. I watched fives games yesterday.
Cygnar v Circle
Cygnar v Circle
Cygnar v Legion
Khador v Legion
Menoth v Gator
And freaking horde took them down each time. I was just wondering. Thanks.
