First game was against Cygnar.
Dwarven hammerfall unit, guys with weapon master reach attacks. Striker? a Grenadier and stormwall. I can never tell whats what in Cygnar, all the jacks look mostly the same with storm something in the name or they are small and annoying but die to a stiff breeze. Same goes for the caster, not one stands out apart from Darius who's the guy in the fat suit and the Pole Dancer. The rest are all dudes in goggles.
Now my record against this opponent is about 50/50. Thats not to say I'm a great player or he is a bad one, but I tend to just kick the ball into my own goal against him rather frequently. Its slightly confusing as Cygnar in general is supposed to be fairly assassinatable and on average I think we are considered players of relative skill. Watching these games however one may be more inclined to think I was the village idiot being encouraged to partake in a game of craps with 2 small rabies infested shaven and polka doted ravenous marmosets.

First turn deployment:
Now previously I just threw pictures in with no indication at all to what they could possibly be. To the trained eye some things may have been recognizable. To the untrained eye, too bad I cant be bothered explaining or drawing little arrows in Inkscape.
Between the Griffon and the Banshee are my unit of farrow battle mages. The proxies.
|Vyros advances to the hill the Griffons take up flank.|
What I'm asking myself is, is it my play style (being terrible) or my list that's letting me down more.
Game 2: Looks familiar don't it.
|Bourne style motion blur for extra action and headaches.|
Killed some halberds. That was fun, yay attrition style ++
The Manticore charged in and for the lure of doing a massive combo smite on the end of a synergy chain I made the star attack. Which in fact only did 14 points of damage and left me with no focus. 1 to charge 1 to boost to hit, oh and 1 attack after which did a little. If I wasn't stupid and just hit it 4 times I probably would have killed it. Because I couldn't I didn't score off the point.
However because my opponent is incapable of even conceiving the idea of stepping backwards Damiano charges in to kill a Griffon....
Which results in him being on the end of a recently repaired Banshee's synergy chain. A victory but a rather empty one at that. I felt like I used my feat badly, got off comparatively scott free after his cav charge and then was handed a silver platter victory wrapped in a pair of Megan Fox's undies.
So a not so convincing win and a rather convincing but uninspiring loss. Dont know what to make of eVyros yet, some feedback suggests the list is ok. For grated I tried to wreck an armor 27 Stormwall (Eyriss was free struck by a Trencher crew with double 6's) But even at armor 24 I wouldn't have killed it.
Should I bank on Hyperion showing up in time, learn to love eVyros and just get better with him or make a better list. Time is running out for Battlecry.
