Here we go people, my first non-cygnar battle report
Skorne vs Khador, Morghoul 1 vs Butcher 3 https://youtu.be/m0U2NzTnGHg
watched almost all of your batreps right now and I have to say: some really sweet batreps here! I especially like your clear voice which makes it easy for me to follow the batreps.
Hope I can see some more in the future.
Skorne vs Menoth, Hexeris 2 vs Kreoss 2 https://youtu.be/bjJZQGIOmaU
In addition to the mistakes at the end I have to ask if Morvahna was in Morghouls feat? I presume so in which case, how did she spend a fury to transfer the mistakenly applied harrow?
Thanks for posting the battle reports and you do a pretty nice job with the commentary and presentation.
I know it's been a while but, here's my latest report! and if you're interested in knowing why it took so long, check out my video from last week.
Skorne vs Retribution, Xerxis 1 vs Kaelyssa 1 https://youtu.be/0h49-QqFtkY
Enjoyed the last couple of Cygnar reports. It feels like you were lucky your opponent made such a big mistake in not contesting both zones. Do you think he could have done with that list?
In the Caine game I have a question about Aurora's equivilant of transference spell. Can it really be used on ranged attacks now? It could not before but Constance saw a similar change and can buy I wanted to ask.
I've been playing a bit of Caine2 and really enjoying him as well as using the cyclone gun mage package. It's been working out very well, I take Arlan so with fire for effect I get two shots with boosts and take aim makes the cyclone brutal at range. Unlike your game though I've not faced a jam list that's been able to rush me as happened in your game. Are there any changes you thinking of making to the list?
In the Caine game, my opponent was wrong when he boosted ranged attacks, we didn't catch that. So no he shouldn't have been able to boost those AP6 shots.
Like I said in the video I have only play tested the list twice so far. At this point I am not sure the arlan+FFE on the cyclone is worth the points/focus. it might be, but POW 14 with Take Aim! is enough to hurt lights, and heavies I'm more interested in pushing away from me. I don't want to make any changes yet since I haven't played it too much, I prefer 5-6 games before changing something (unless it proves to be utterly useless). At this point though I'm not sold on Gorman. He's supposed to be there to block LOS and provide Def Debuff, or damage buff against jacks. I'm not sure I need the DEF debuff since my guys can shoot at like RAT 11 usually. The rust might still prove useful though, so I'll keep testing.
Thanks for watching!
I'm now up to about half a dozen games with the cyclone + gun mage module and feel relatively happy with what it can do. Multiple POW 14s with a couple of boosts can straight up kill lights, not just hurt them and it'll gut a unit of medium multi-wound infantry as well. It can do a fair bit of damage to most enemy heavies, not just push them around. In most of my games though I've not been using anything other than snipe shots. 16" reaches out a long way and with multiple shots it tends to average out the dice nicely.
Perhaps in part because I've been playing 50pt games I've not been using rangers. Not missed them either, Caine does most of the medium to high DEF infantry clearing and the gun mages do control leaving my jacks to bust armour. It's sort of worked quite well so far. (Need to update my own battle report thread.) For those times when I need a DEF debuff Gorman's come to the rescue. Black oil is still awesome there and against jacks rust should help a lot. I say should because so far he's never had to chuck a rust bomb.
Did the sentinel ever use it's shield guard ability?
Nice report as usual. Lots of what-if questions. Were you happy about the decision to throw Typhon away from Abby and not into the objective? (He looked to be in range.) I've never played Darius so would like to ask if you ever cast full throttle. Particularly against modest-good DEF things like Typhon it seems like a worthwhile spell alongside the free charges or is jack hammer always preferable? Did you ever drop any storm pods? I know that it can be bad because Abby can use them to trigger her buff to her battlegroup but it might have been worth it late game to clear out some of his small based solos earlier.
