This is a neater way of storing my playtests for my customs that I want other people to be able to see. I mostly intend on posting about units that I'd like to submit to the SoV.

485 Points
Glyphs: Valda (Move +2), Kelda (Healer)

Current Version of Unit:
Spoiler Alert!

Army 1: Masha Shingai, Tomoe Gozen, Izumi Samurai, Kozuke Samurai, Tagawa Samurai, Otonashi (485)
Army 2: Sujoah, Wyvern, Fyorlag Spiders x5 (485)

Which Units Survived?
2 Izumi Samurai, 1 Kozuke Samurai, 1 Tagawa Samurai
~110 Points

Game Summary:
The predators rushed outwards to nab height on Masha, crippling him early on before he was able to move into position (and while his surrounding Samurai were in the process of moving into place). He managed to get in one attack from height (blocked) thanks to his six move, but fell the next turn once Sujoah joined the Wyvern. Sujoah then took a rigorous beating from the Tagawas, disengaged, and limped over to Tomoe Gozen to kill her in one Poison Sting (3 successful rolls for poison damage are terrifying)....

Glyphs of Dagmar (Initiative +8 ) and Valda (Move +2)

Current Version of Unit:
Spoiler Alert!

Leo: Masha Shingai, Tagawa Samurai Archers x3, Otonashi (290)
Astro: Knights of Weston x3, Sir Hawthorne (300)

Which Units Survived?
Sir Hawthorne (no wounds), 8 Knights of Weston
~230 Points

Game Summary:
Since Hawthorne's untimely betrayal significantly hampered the knights' progress in the last game, I wanted to see this match-up again. I won initiative and my defense dice didn't fail me as I advanced my very slow knight build forward.

Leo overextended with Masha on OM2 of Round 1, letting me gang up on him from height under the hopes that the defense penalty would slow down my knights. Hawthorne didn't manage to deal any damage (to him or me, thankfully), and the knights were mostly unsuccessful on their first attempt...

Army 2: Knights of Weston x3, Sir Hawthorne (300)

Which Units Survived?
7 Tagawa Samurai Archers, Otonashi
~183 Points

Game Summary:
The knights won initiative and moved out Hawthorne, who immediately rolled a 1 and betrayed them.

After that, they struggled to recover. As the TSA slowly moved up onto level ground. On OM3, Masha rushed out and killed a knight, and one whiffed against a stray arrow earlier in the round.

The next round, he took OM1, but instead of retreating behind a line of TSA, he rushed out further to try and kill a KoW going for the Movement glyph, but the attack was blocked. The KoW then spun around to grab...

What Units Survived?
Marcus Decimus Gallus (2 wounds), 1 Roman Legionnaire, 2 10th Regiment of Foot, Siiv (no wounds)
~150 Points

Game Summary:
Me-Burq-Sa and the Romans won initiative, quickly claiming the movement glyph. Masha rushed out to engage some Romans, and a stray TSA managed to engage Me-Burq-Sa. Unwilling to be tied down, Me-Burq-Sa took a wound from a leaving engagement attack, but managed to take down some archers with him.

With Masha further away from my starting zone and the Roman Legionnaires being the main opposing force, I was finally able to abuse the line-of-sight-blocking trees and 4 range on the aura to avoid it the next round, only losing...
