Re: 2020 C3V Playtest Tournament - Round 1 until 7/5

It’s been a while since I did OHS. When placing armies, does the first player place their entire army and then the second player places their entire army, or do we take turns placing 1 army card’s worth of figures until all figures are placed?

Spoiler Alert!



How useful were playtesting units' powers and how often did they come into play?
So a lot of the powers were used this game (which makes sense over 8 rounds). Axentia was a shark and proved a bit annoying to remove with her rebirth causing me to have to kill her all over again at a bad time (since i couldnt kill others with the marro so it was wasted), and her burn was used on her once and on Syvarris once (I think, it was a long day, and its what i have in my notes). The Rebirth killed a Marro and two reavers. Ranjit's boost was used each round and his OM power and while it was "succesful" each time I rolled, I did miss one time where I pulled an x. I liked Ranjit, he seemed more interesting than i thought at first glance, while Axentia was a bit annoying. She might need a reduction in life/other stats (to make it so you dont have to deal 14 damage) or an increase in points, but I'm guessing other tests will tell.
This is a solid summary of the game. A few thoughts, mostly just emphasizing points above:
  • Axentia takes a long time to kill

  • Phoenix Rising triggered in a highly advantageous way for me this game. Not only did it kill 3 figures including the Marro that attacked it, but since the other three Marro had no targets in range aside from Axentia, it wasted the remainder of their attacks. This ended up having a huge impact on the game as Axentia lived long enough to track down and kill two more Marro Warriors.

    I don't think this is an issue, thematically - it makes sense that Axentia doesn't rise from the ashes instantaneously. But it means that a lot of the time, she's even tougher than you'd think for 14 life.

  • One of the nice things about Ranjit is that when you start actually revealing numbered OMs on him, Diplomatic Subterfuge keeps those turns pretty efficient.

Re: 2020 C3V Playtest Tournament - Round 1 until 7/5

Played with AgentWard earlier today.

Which units survived?
AgentWard won with 3 HSBs, 4 Cutters, 1 full life Bugbear, & 1 2-life bugbear.

General Battle Report/Flow of game
I moved Sujoah to Valda and had 8 move protectors for the first 3 rounds. Rounds 1 & 2 consisted mostly of trading cutters & protectors (very slow and tedious opening, neither had much attack and with the cutters scurrying everywhere). We each traded like 3-6 of those low-cost units before AgentWard moved onto the HSBs. The cutters had brought my queen down to 1 life, which the HSBs finished off quickly. With my needing to use Special Attacks (killing my own figures) to do much damage to the HSBs, that engagement went in AgentWard's favor and I was never able to get the HSBs below one full squad.

How useful were the playtesting units' powers and how often did they come into play?
Amberhive Queen: The Queen's initiative boost was activated in round 2 & 3. Round 2 it was not enough to overcome AW's roll but in round 3 it made the difference to win me initiative. The Queen had very few chances to give a 2nd attack to my Protectors, and the only one that hit led to another futile 1-attack against a HSB.

Amberhive Protectors: Had to use their SA when attacking HSBs when at level ground because 1 v 4 was so useless. When I had height, I generally used a 2-attack regular attack instead of the SA to save some protectors.

Bugbear Basher: Only activated one on a single OM; had minimal to no effect on the game.

Any additional comments
Amberhive protectors v. cutters wasn't the world's most interesting matchup; lots of very low attacks and not much happening on each OM. The protectors were quite fun, especially at 8 move for most of the game with valda. Sujoah is still over priced; frankly, a 50-90 point uncommon hero that you could bring 2 of would be a more interesting and probably competitive army. The army would be helped alot by include MWs, but so would almost every army. Probably not the best army for Raelin or Rats though.

Thanks for the game AgentWard.

Stats
Spoiler Alert!


Which units survived?
CaptainStupendous won with 1xRifle and Guilty McCreech

General Battle Report/Flow of game
I spent my first OM rolling out Brute Gruts, which was probably a mistake. Meanwhile Cathars were rolling out to meet the onslaught of Axentia. She killed a pair of them with her normal attack and then by the time she died she was engaged with just one Rifle. The Cathars did not engage her after Phoenix Rising so she flew over to hammer on Motley Max. She had some dud rolls but after 5 or 6 OMs she managed to kill him right before the Cathars and Rifles finished her off.
The rest of the game was the rest of my army trying to finish off the rest of his. I made some poor decisions with my B-11s and they ultimately had less impact than I would have liked. But with 1 life left Rygarn hit his one and only successful Temporal Jump to move onto the road, which he then used on his turn to get out of the reach of the remaining Cathar while still being able to attack them. He ended up single-handedly finishing off the Cathar, but then whiffed against a Gas Grenade.

CaptainStupendous never held any of the glyphs (when they would have mattered) and never got a Braced Spear roll
I never held Wannok and only held Valda briefly; I also never got Immolation to hit, except once against Axentia

How useful were the playtesting units' powers and how often did they come into play?
Axentia: Only got one Immolation roll and it was against herself, but she drew a lot of attention, killed 2xCathar with her normal attack, 1xRifle with her death, and then killed Motley Max with her normal attack. Despite her bad luck, she managed to "take her points" (~135 Motley Max + 37 2xCathars + 30 1xRifle = 202 points)
Motley Max: Never got an OM, but he drew Axentia's attention. 0 points taken

Any additional comments
I enjoyed the game, and Axentia, although I would have liked her to pull off some Immolation rolls.

Your custom probably has too much Defense.

SoA: Children of the Dark Star x4, Agga-Zemir, Marro Warriors, Black Wyrmling x2

Which units survived?
SoA resigned when I had 6 Teeth of the Makwa as well as the Makwa Tribesman and Kira Jax both at full health, while SoA had one black wyrmling and one Child of the Dark Star. (I had killed off his OMs for the round on turn 1, so I would highly likely have mopped up his last two units with no losses).
