Morvhanna the Dawnshadow
Lord of the Feast
Old Witch 2
Jonny won the roll off and took first turn. I chose the side without the wall and building in a hope it would complicate witches positioning. Jonny deployed Witch, his jacks and greylords central, his outriders flanking hard right and his reavers in a long ass line out front. I put my bird central, ravagers on each flank, riders on the far left and feast on the far right (Hoping to stretch his windstorm range)
Khador Turn 1
Reconstruct is on Ruin, witch casts windstorm with extra control and walks up behind the wall. His Reavers run up respecting my threat as he can’t cover all of his stuff with windstorms protection this turn. He puts some reavers behind the central cloud ready to apparate into it next turn.
Circle Turn 1
Carnivore goes on the right ravagers and fog is cast. I run up as far as i can. Putting a couple of bits into threat of apparition range of each unit and keeping the rest back so he has no obvious apparition target. My bird moves up and picks off a couple of reavers that it can reach. Lord of the feast has no amazing targets so i keep him back to keep Jonny honest. He can only threaten him with 1 spray which even a box cars will leave him alive on 1.
Khador Turn 2
Jonny does indeed go for the feasty boi. He sprays him and smashes the double 6 for damage dropping him to just 1 box. Everything shuffles up with a handful of reavers running in to engage and try to complicate my turn.
Circle Turn 2
I had line of sight for my vengeance baiting ravager to get into the cloud and then pacman some nerds but first he needed to be free’d up. My rider champ goes in and kills two of the reavers engaging my ravagers. She then repo’s out the way. The riders go, advancing and jumping up as far as they can, one killing the reaver engaging my Pacman to be the others killing off some reavers in another unit. My ravager goes in and murders 5 reavers and a wizard. He can’t kill the last due to cmd range. (Jonny’s tough dice fully shit the bed) Lord of the feast goes in and kills off a reaver and an outrider. I was then going to bird to another contesting reaver but upon trying to sort out where i could get to and then going into the tank about other things i moved on and forgot to use the bird, like a dick. My ravagers went in, one contesting Jonnys flag, one killing the reaver that ran to engage and one planning on killing the contesting reaver and the rider. I fluffed the damage though leaving both alive. With nothing left that could kill it contesting reaver i accepted the 1 cp head start and passed the turn.
I score 1
1 – 0 to Circle!
Khador Turn 3
Jonny sends in loads of reavers and kills a bunch of my ravagers on the right on the left, he misses my riders a lot. Pacman gets blinded by witch.
Jonny clears his flag but dosn’t contest my flag so we both score.
2 – 1 to Circle!
Circle Turn 3
I didn’t have anything that could get to his flag reliably as my right hand ravagers needed to go before the bird due to landing spots and melee ranges etc. My right hand ravagers cleared my zone and killed another horse My bird then shoots and kills a few more reavers down. My other ravager unit toe the central zone and body block for the chieftain. I flood the left zone with cav to stop him scoring and block in Ruin to keep my flag scoring.
Jonny scores his flag, i score my flag and zone.
4 – 2 to Circle!
Khador Turn 4
Jonny clears the ravagers in my right zone leaving just my feat insurance target alive at the back. Witch blinds 4 ravagers as i forgot the blind gun. Ruin bops a rider.
We both score our flags again.
5 – 3 to Circle!
Circle Turn 4
I had the idea of winning the turn by scoring my flag and zone, and then advancing and repoing morv into his zone. Unfortunatley i had nothing that could contest his zone, my bird was about half an inch out after an advance and repo (He had to kill the reavers) So instead i just kept playing the long game. My bird went in and cleared my zone again killing a bunch of stuff with e-leaps. My riders flank hard to try and kill his Koldun Lord and the champ and nightwtich stay behind the building in his zone to keep it contested. I again can’t contest his flag so pass over extending my lead 1 cp at a time.
Jonny scores 1, i score 2
7 – 4 to Circle!
Khador Turn 5
Jonnys rager kills a ravager, Ruin turns around to kill off two riders. He contest my zone again and kills another ravager. Jonny blinds my chief again to deny orders.
We both score 1!
8 – 5 to Circle!
Circle Turn 5
I only need to contest his flag and clear my zone to win which i manage but my ravagers also manage to clear out his rager too to score an extra point.
Final Score: 11 – 5 to Circle!
I was a little concerned about the wind storm and wind ravager combo shutting my raptor down, and to be fair it was was a nasty combo and my birds gun didn’t do too much this game. My ravagers and riders carried the hell out of this game though and i feel pretty good about Morv into Wolves after seeing it on the table. I think if i’d played my turn 2 better i could have took the victory sooner but with no real assassination threat i was fine playing the longer game as that’s what Morv excels at.
