Game #6. Jarl1 vs Skarre3

Onto the next report! This one is from March 2018. I played with Semir, our local Cryx bully 🙂 He wanted to play Scaverous, but when he turned on the Warroom app, the updade popped and unfamous Skarre3 cames out. So Semir change his mind and put flying half-ship to play.

I was playing my favourite troll caster – Jarl Skuld. Nowadays I pilot him in Storm of the North, but back then it was Power of Dhunia.

I rolled 6 and said I wanted to start, but Semir in answer rolled 6 too, followed by another high number and says he want to start 😀 So I choose the side with cool forest for LoS blocking. Semir runs faaaaaaaaaar forward (damn, this list is fast!), just out of my threat ranges.

In my turn I position myself far back (it was a scenario mistake). Bombers throw bombs, but Carpace theme bonus saves Cryx jacks from any serious dmg. Jarls Magic Bullet hits Shriek for a couple of points. I FEAT.

I turns out that I positioned Earthborn wrong. Skarre used Dark Waves (it’s kind of Legions Slip Stream; Flying ship moves another model 2″) on Deathjack. It fuels itself with 2 focus, gains another one from Siren, and with Dark Shroud effect, comes to Earthborn killing it with 3 hits. Light jacks comes to block my models. Slayer and Seether waits in the second line. One Overlord spray over my Shaman killing him.

My turn. I gave out some Puppet Masters (Dhunian Knot). Jarl shot off Wrath on the right, and Rages a Bomber on the left. Gobber charges Shriek in the back (he have Backstab!) doing a little dmg. Axer threshers light jacks and my Gobber Chef, killing him and scratches enemies. Janissa push out some intervening jacks. Mauler charges and killed one Slayer. Bomber charges Deathjack, but unfortunately he did nothing special (all systems are up). Swamp Troll shoot at Overlord, but he miss. Noone scores.

Skarre FEATs. She cast spells for free (ok, not free, for dmg, but Scrap Thralls repaired her ship immediately). Deathjack and Seether supported by Skarre kills one Bomber and Mauler 🙁 Right Seether attacks the other Bomber for about 15 dmg, but all aspects are ok. Anyway, I think I loose 😀 Semir gets 2 or 3 scenario points.

Last chance – caster kill time! The chances were about 1-2% 😉 Skarre was def12, arm19, 5 focus. Janissa moves jacks out freeing Bomber, which shoot at Skarre twice. Axer charges her and Jarl shoot (missing once). Skarre survies on 3/4 boxes. Semir gets his last scenario point and wins 5:0.
