5/100 – London Super Series SR
My last game of the day was into menoth with the match up being Tubby vs testament in exemplar theme:
- Regenger x 2
Errants + UA x 2
Exemplar Knights + UA x 2
knight seneschal x 2
I drop Tubby
Dudes vs turtles
I lose the roll to go first and have an army of dudes fly towards me.
bottom of 1 and I shave off the front line, and put down some BOC in annoying places – 1 hits, 1 drifts.
Errants walk up and shoot some of the reviers, testament brings back 6 guys, everything else runs forward. I’m getting the flavour of this list…
I put up carnivore on the right hand turtle (should have been up turn 1 instead of the double BOC), castigate and BOC. I have enough attacks and fire power to clear a whole unit so thats the plan. Between turtles, reivers and lights one unit of errants goes down and the other has its command forced back.
As models are getting rfpd now the testament is struggling. Stuff comes in but does very little damage. I hit back and clear swathes more. At this point I’m starting to tick over on the bottom right flag and the zone is almost clear (it was 4-2 now)
We play another round but with most of the army gone/rfpd the game was done. On the bottom of my turn I clear the right zone, left zone and the objective. Attrition win for Tubby!
Planning – Starting a new faction is always tough – I didn’t have a great idea of how I was going to win each game and I was still in the “what does my stuff do” mode. Models had a rough position, place on the board but it was not fixed.
Positioning – a theme throughout today – models being in the wrong position, stopping other models being in the right position etc. Not great
Time – The above 2 will help with this. again in this game it was rough on time.
Scenario – Most games where low differential (I just kept up or cleared one zone and started scoring). I think I can be more aggressive pushing for scenario as well and at the very least make sure I have more than just turtles in zones/near to contest/score.
