Short battle report from Dave’s perspective: “This round was the one round I think I got my caster choice wrong. I think Butcher1 would have been a better choice. However Vlad jammed up as he does and started making headway into the scenario. However I couldn’t kill enough quickly enough and started running out of models, which lead to the loss in the end.

Short battle report from Wolf’s perspective: “I used Vlad3. Almost managed to side-step assassinate eHaley on turn 2. For the second initial melee I needed a fraction of inch to reach Haley. I got a second go on her in the third round, charging a gunmage, then razor wind Haley. I had HoF on Vlad, and got a boost from Sylys. I made a stupid mistake giving the boost with the attachment from the back side of the caster, so when he charged forward Sylys was left too far behind to give Vlad the +2” range on the spell, and Haley was further away than 10”.

  2. I don’t know much about the high levels of Warmachine play, but do you consider it significant that only one Khador player won this round (Pär-Ola Nilsson using Vlad2 against Borka1)?

    • There’s a huge discussion at the Khador-forum … and I’m not even participating there. So no, although I’m sure that Khador is not at its peak performance level currently, I don’t think Khador’s doing that bad either. The players from the 1st round need to join the discussion and tell us what went wrong.

    • That’s really sad, especially the first part. To me it’s the best thing that can happen with Vlad3: assassinating Haley2. :) – Thanks for your comment, added it to the post above.

    This round was the one round I think I got my caster choice wrong. I think Butcher1 would have been a better choice. However Vlad jammed up as he does and started making headway into the scenario. However I couldn’t kill enough quickly enough and started running out of models, which lead to the loss in the end.
