Part Deux.My opponent does have this crazy idea to assassinate Butcher this turn. If he can get the Seraph to flare him, Zuriel can be furied and he can walk up and hit him a few times. It is remote but he tries it out by moving the Seraph into a position to hit him with a flare. He needs a 9 to hit and rolls an 8, so he changes his plan and goes for the long game. Zuriel ends up whacking Kodiak2 several times, leaving him with no cortex. The Nyss Warlord charges Kodiak1 and goes for an amazing decapitation shot at dice -9, and rolls a 9 on four dice, so no damage for him. Fyanna walks up and manages to get a smite on Kodiak3, knocking him down and doing a bit of damage, the Neraph gets Fury and charges in, bringing him down to just his right arm and cortex. Proteus charges and kills a man o war, but due to the fact he is a little 'pillow tentacled' he can't kill any of the other ones.
I have no easy way to get to Fyanna, so it is time to show him how Khador plays attrition! Ruin turns a soul into a focus and I give him one more, I give Kodiak1 2 More. Kodiak2 has no cortex and Kodiak3 can stand up in his own time.
With Fury on the Neraph it means I get to hit him twice with my Kodiak's decent fist, dealing a massive amount of damage. The Shocktroopers get a charge order, 3 into Proteus and 2 into the Neraph, The Neraph dies and Proteus takes a pounding with Silence of Death negating his unyielding. The Kovnik, not to be outdone by his own men charges both Nyss, but misses with both attacks. Kodiak1 vents steam to try and kill the Warlord, but leaves him on 1. So he tramples him, and misses, but buys 2 attacks into Zuriel, doing quite a bit of damage at dice -1 (Because I forget that Legion heavies are armoured with wet paper.) I was going to try and use Kodiak2 to throw him out of the zone, but he kills him with the initials, bloody pillowfisted Kodiaks...... Ruin charges the Warlord and turns him into a soul. Butcher walks into the zone and kills the Seraph in 3 hits before feating, his dog kills a Nyss, sprinting out of the way to allow the war dog to kill the last one.
And that's how the game ends. I go to 2 points and my opponent decides to call it there, it was nearing the half way point of the night so we decided to rerack rather than watch him lose the next turn as he was unable to kill Butcher and had nothing left that could really contest the right zone, only the forsaken could make it and it would just die to Butcher.
So Victory Khador!
