So, I play Orboros and Retribution. One of our core players plays Cygnar. Last night I wanted to test out some of the SR2012 scenarios and played eKrueger, he played pCaine. His list went something like this (35 point game):
max long gunners
min trenchers putting up clouds in front of his models
min precursor knights (i think these are the models, weapon masters)
maybe another model or two I'm forgetting. We played scenario 7 which is 3 control points, one randomly disappearing. He did pretty well early game, double-tap CRA'd my Celestial Fulcrum off the board with two pow 20 shots with sniped long gunners. But at the end of 2nd player's 2nd turn (his) he scored one control point having assaulted his trenchers in, however most of his models were still in his deployment zone shooting out while I'd been advancing. I'd killed his stormlances and feated on Krueger to push his precursor knights back and make them unable to get to control points. He seemed to get mad and said there was no point in him even playing the game if we played scenarios because he auto-lost. However if we don't play a scenario he'll often do things like move forward with Caine fire 4x and then teleport away- being constantly 20" away from his target and easily winning a late-game attrition war.
So is he wrong that Cygnar suffers in scenario play, or can they do alright?
