Re: OHS 36 - Heat & Insanity - Round 3 until 6/7

I kept my playoffs hopes alive with a win over BodaciousBlood. I got to play his Raelin and Taelord and Redcoats and Marro Warriors army, which was the army I took way back at Gencon Main Event 2015, so that was fun. A little different in Heat of Battle when you get to start both Kyrie in the middle of the board. BodaciousBlood had his Wildwoods/Rats/James Murphy. BB placed Murphy towards the center of the board with his first OM and I responded by piling Redcoats in Wait then Fire range of him with the idea of just blowing the cowboy off the board with my autoinit. BB smartly clogged the lava height with the Monarch, but I was placing so many more figures per turn that I could decently own the side of the board that I wanted. The first turn autoinit was brutal: I killed Murphy and knocked off OM1, and then turned around and finished off the Monarch on the lost turn and knocked off his OM3. Then the Rats started to get into things and slow me down. That gave the Wildwoods time to regenerate quite bit: they're really at their best in terms of regeneration value when the Monarch is dying. Wildwoods resurrected 2 Sentinels and 2 Monarchs and 1 Runner. But they couldn't crack into the Redcoat pod in a meaningful way, especially when the Marro Warriors got into the mix and started pulling the slow trees in different directions. Good game BB.

It's Over

Pulled out the win with two Mechs with all the Redundant Markers gone. Hounds came in hot and dwarves were just okay so I traded basically all my dwarves for a little over half the hounds, but the Vulcanmechs picked up the slack and killed everything else including Katie Ann in two turns when he had no grubs nearby to heal. Good game coachmuskie.

~Dysole, whose goals was to keep Mechs on as many RS markers as long as she could and that was the key to victory

Re: OHS 36 - Heat & Insanity - Round 3 until 6/7

Had a close one with vegie's dad tonight.

He had my spider build and I took my other army, Romans/Axegrinders Rygarn hub.

I set up my entire army in the upper Northeast to try and prevent as much possible lava dunkage as possible, and it worked....at first.

We had a bloody first round as is typical for HoB (8 spiders, 1 Wyvern, 2 Romans, 2 Axegrinders, and a wound on Forgehammer) was the damage from round 1. Ambershard had a big sneak attack to kill the Wyvern on Turn 2 freeing up my axegrinders to move. I avoided any webbing and managed to get rid of he first wyvern without much casualties until the Owlbear jumped in on height to make things very painful.

I won the second round initiative and started the slow process of grinding down Kozil, taking attacks on spiders when feasible. Kozil was a pain to bring down, hitting wounded rage a number of time and putting down axegrinders. VD did an amazing job all game tying down my units with spider placements, and it took me a few times to find a Sneak Attack against Kozil, but Ambershard got a huge 3 wound attack that finished off Kozil. They last Wyvern came in end of 2nd round killed a Roman.

Matchup:

Wyvern, 7 Spiders vs. Forge (3), Rygarn, MBS, Darrak, 2 Axegrinders, 6 Romans,

R3T1a: This looks like a pretty solid advantage for the podge, but order markers can be tricky for the broken squads. VD won initiative on (one that went to a tiebreaker on a Mog boost to force it). He disengaged (hit) and lava dunked Forgehammer (FWOOSH). Spider put 2 hits on MBS and killed a Roman.

R3T1b: My OM1 is on the 2 axegrinders. Ambershad kills a spider (freeing up a path) to get 2 attacks against the Wyvern that do 1 hit (2 total)

R3T2a: The 2 life Wyvern kills a Roman (4 left) He could have triple disengaged to lava dunk Rygarn, but that would have been exceedingly risky. Not sure what the right call in this situation would have been. But the axegrinders both survive

R3T2b: Rygarn to the rescue. He flexes an order marker off of the dead Forgehammer (I put the OM there for +3 initiative, but it really could have backfired) and moves it to the axegrinders. Somehow both squads are still alive. Ambershard sneak attacks away a spider that freed up height and a dwarf claims it getting an attack of 5 that kills the Wyvern. That effectively ended the games, although VD had a few attacks to kill MBS that might have made things interesting, but with full health Ambershard and Rygarn on the board it would have been tough with no predators.

VD conceded with 2 spiders (Valda) and me having full health Darrak, Rygarn, 1 life MBS, 2 axegrinders, 2 Romans

really good game VD. Very fun one that had me sweating. Ambershard was a stud for me killing a 2 life Wyvern, 3 life Kozil and killing 3 spiders without taking any damage. If either of the entangling webs had hit it might have been a different game as well.

Like my round 2 game, this one is a face-off between Honor Guard and Dreadgulls, and it's happening in a few hours at 10:00 AM Pacific

Re: OHS 36 - Heat & Insanity - Round 3 until 6/7

The reckless knights were able to take out Braxas/Heracles/Raelin/Thorgrim last night. It was one of the strangest games I've ever played.

xthorsavagex wisely had me place first. That allowed him to use the first init to set up an intimidating defensive pod where Braxas could spit at advancing knights from Raelin's aura and a Thorgrim defensive boost. The pod was set up such that there was no way to get height attacks on Braxas or Raelin. It was really a thing of beauty.

I resigned myself to a strategy of rushing in waves of knights in the hopes that repeated swings at Braxas would eventually punch through the 6 base defense she was rolling. It might not be the best strategey, but you can't deny that it is in fact a strategy. For a couple of turns it was acid breath taking out 2 kinghts followed by 2 or 3 knights flailing at Braxas and managing a total of 1 wound. This is where things get strange. I then proceeded to roll 3 skulls on 4 attack dice SEVEN TIMES IN A ROW. It was absolutely outrageous.

That insasne run of attack dice resulted in Braxas dying way sooner than she should have which allowed the knights to steal an order marker. With the extra turn, knights were able to surround Heracles who was standing on Wannock. Knights then rolled 11 skulls on 15 attack dice. It was totally gross. Heracles was dead and that was pretty much the game.

Looking back at my attack dice for the whole game they came in at >70% skulls. I know it's not particularly interesting to talk about dice, but in this case I really think it was the story of the game. xthorsavagex deserved a far better fate than what he was dealt.
