Battle report from Laurents’ perspective: “This time match-ups were more in my favor. I got matched against Khador, and Milo Fuggini had a Butcher2/Strakhov setup I wasn’t the least bit scared of. The Butcher2 list was an armored front, and Strakhov was a classic Jack bullet list, so I dropped Terminus because Jack bullets don’t kill him even if I mess up, and even Butcher2 has to roll well on the round he comes in. – Terminus Vs. Butcher2 is a game I’ve never lost, but it was still the right drop from Milo. I was betting that this was going to be a Mexican stand-off so I picked second, so I could force him on scenario, and we were off. … Milo moves up his mighty 7-8 inches, I run up my ten inches, leaving about fifteen inches between us. Now I have a longer threat range than he does, so when he shuffled and stayed outside my charge range I simply shuffled and got ahead on scenario while staying out of his. I sent in a couple of models to see if I could lure a feat out of him, and switched time back to him. Milo could see where this was going, and he only really had one choice: All in baby! – During the round in my zombie state of Russian aftershock I forgot to activate Darragh Wrathe and use Beyond Death. This was a really bad move, because I knew I was going to get him in the face, so why oh why didn’t I remember that. – The upside was, Milo got so carried away with his assassination run that he forgot to feat until after he murdered the first couple of models, so in the end it all balanced out neatly. Butcher2 has some sad encounters with Tough Bane Thralls, and when the Great Bears come running down to abuse the feat Terminus is still at full health. – Terminus takes his 8 damage like a man, but it should have been just two damage if I had remembered Darragh Wrathe, and then Butcher2 is bashed, minced, and chopped into dinner. Snapjaw failed horribly on this one though, and in general he didn’t really do much work the entire tournament, which is interesting considering that he was my MVP at the ETC 2012. – Result: Win on assassination

Short battle report from Anthony’s perspective: “For the first round of Game 4, it was decided that I should probably get a non-Cryx matchup this round so I could play pSkarre without locking myself in for the final round. The Captain obliged me and matched me up against Moritz’s Khador – and as expected, he dropped his epic Sorscha list, which contained plenty of solid tools for combating Cryx. – The MVP in this matchup was Tartarus, who was an absolute beast. He generated enough banes to keep my left hand unit (Black robes) fully intact despite heavy attrition, and managed to heroically not die while right up in the mix (pSkarre’s feat does make him very hard to remove at ARM 22) so he could do some of that again. His general monstrousness in the centre of the board allowed me to get the leg up in scenario on the left (after Skarre bravely legged it all the way to the left corner of her zone) while pushing into his zone on the right with the remaining Green Robe Knights and roadblock his jacks and worry his caster with my Helldivers. This bought me the time to win on scenario, and I was back at 2-2.

Short battle report from Dave’s perspective: “In this one I got ahead in the scenario by dominating my zone and repeatedly clearing the trolls out of it. Unfortunately, 1-2 trolls in his zone passed a couple of tough rolls on one turn which would have allowed me to control it. I was up 3-0 but running out of steam now. He tries to pen Vlad in and puts some damage on. Eventually I can’t stop the earthborn getting to Vlad. I roll a 1,1,2 for damage on my defensive strike and the earthborn gets the 12 it needs to hit him with his first boosted attack, which finishes Vlad off.

  3. In this turn my opponent was really unlucky. He could not kill the doomies, so I controlled his zone on turn 2. I then dominated his zone with the caster killing an angelius that was contesting it.

    • Well, it’s still a game of dice, but I now what you mean. Personally, I also prefer winning because of what I did … and not because of bad roles of my opponent. – Thanks again for your comment, added it to the post above.
