Game #2. Doomshaper2 vs Haley3

Hi! Here is another report from February 2018. I played against Filip, our local Cygnarian who brought Haley3 in Gravediggers theme. Never seen her before, but whatever – let’s play!

My list:

[Theme] The Power of Dhunia

(Doomshaper 2) Hoarluk Doomshaper, Rage of Dhunia [+27]
– Earthborn Dire Troll [14]
– Mountain King [36]
– Mulg the Ancient [22]
– Troll Axer [10]
– Troll Bouncer [9]
– Trollkin Runebearer [0(5)]
Northkin Shaman [0(4)]
Troll Whelps [0(4)]
Krielstone Bearer & Stone Scribes (min) [6]
– Stone Scribe Elder [3]
Swamp Gobbers Bellows Crew [2]

Filip’s list. I don’t remember to be honest, but it was something like:
4 jacks (2 under Haley, another 2 under some junior) – all of them were shooting ones; some got shot from standing near trenchers, one with armor piercing, some heavy which shots in Maintenance phase. Plus cloud trenchers and 14″ range trenchers. And Ragman.

I forgot to take pictures at the beggining so a quick resume about what I remembered.
Cygnar went first, positioning. I run Mountan King on the far left to the zone, without stone aura. It was a bait. Rest of my army tight packed moved forward. Northkin Shaman and Gobbers put a clouds in front of the Doomshaper. I was constantly afraid of CK, because Doomie is so squishy. Every turn I used a free animus ability to cast Earth Blessing on warlock.

Cygnar, turn 2. Filip shots at MK (doing a little dmg) and some other models, but he either miss (Gobbers in cloud) or roll poorly for dmg. Some models park in the zones to contest. Trenchers made a really wide cloud wall 🙂

My 2nd turn. I measure and count, and it seems that if I feat, I can trample Earthborn to Haley. Doomshaper upkeeps Wild Agression on Earthborn. Haley is def 18. Doomie FEATS! Axer rushes Mountain King. MK trample for free to the trenchers on the left and after buying some attack he kills one and I use Kill Shot to spray over Haley for Deafen. Boost to hit and I miss… Ok, it’s nothing super bad. Earthborn tramples (through some trenchers) for free to Haley and then I realised I forgot to put Rage on him so he is only p+s 15… Stupid me – I do it very often – when opportunity strikes I forget about some key elements 🙂 In the end Haley stays alive on about 1/2 boxes. Mulg and Bouncer runs in front of the warlock for protection. I score 1, Cygnar 0.

Cygnar turn 3. Filip easily killls MK with trenchers charges and assaults (with help of Dark Shroud). Some Whelps appears 🙂 And then I took a photo:

All the Haleys tries to kill Earthborn, but after some bad dices he lives. Some jack comes to help and finally EB is down. On the right side a single Whelp survived in the zone. One Gobber died due to some AoE. We both scores rectangular zones: 2-1 for Trolls.

My 3rd turn. I slowly run out of models, so I  decided to finish what I started a turn before. Bouncer runs to the forest in the middle. Doomshaper cast Wild Agression and Rush on Mulg and Primal Shock Haley (using Bouncer’s strenght) for a few dmg. Mulg tramples toward Haley and kills her brutally.

CK victory!
