Ossyan Batreps, T.C.O.W

2 Games yesterday with Ossyan 35 points. My list was... 

Lord Arcanist Ossyan
Dawnguard Invictors (Leader and 9 Grunts)
Dawnguard Invictor Officer & Standard
Soulless Escort
Arcantrik Force Generator
House Shyeel Battle Mages (Leader and 5 Grunts)
Narn, Mage Hunter of Ios

The first game, his list was...

General Ossrum
Grundback Gunner
Grundback Gunner
Ghordson Driller
Hammerfall High Shield Gun Corps (Leader and 9 Grunts)
Hammerfall High Shield Gun Corps Officer & Standard
Horgenhold Artillery Corps (Leader and 2 Grunts)
Horgenhold Artillery Corps (Leader and 2 Grunts)
Horgenhold Forge Guard min unit
Ogrun Bokur
Some Mechanic character.

He gets advanced move and then I take the first turn. Quicken on the AFG to bring it up and Shatter storm on the Invictors, just cause.

His light jack on the left flank was missing part of its 2 part small base, this is why its sitting on a medium marker.
He advances the Shield Corps in Shield Wall, with a Gun bunny in the lead. The Forge Guard run up center and the second Gun bunny sits behind them. He puts snipe on the SHield Corps and Guided Fire on a Mortar and hits the AFG with both Mortars, about half killing it.

Shield Corps tag out a Battle Mage

 Ossyan moves into position and feats. He doesnt upkeep quicken but cycles it on to himself. He opens by shooting the central light jack and tagging it with Chrono Phage, he boosts damage and half kills it. The AFG opens up with 4 shots, it needs 3 to finish off the light jack and then drops one on the Mortar team in the back. Narn charges in and kills 2 Forge Guard before sprinting into the forest.
The Invictors finish off the reast of the Forge Guard. On the right the Battle Mages pull in the light jack and Hypnos with a point of focus from the Artificer kills it.
Ossyan is in a highly vulnerable place here, relying almost solely on his feat to survive.
 Ossrum juggles Guided Fire and with both Mortars kills the AFG, the Shield Corps move up still with snipe on them and do 2 5 man combines. Each roll on one d6. He only needed an 8 in total so the odds were a bit less than 50%, his first roll was a 3, so I was extremely worried about the second one until he rolled a 1. If he Guided Fired the Shield Corps he may not have had the range that Snipe gave him but he could have easily killed me with the damage. The thing is he forgot to pop is feat.
Narn leaps out of the bushes and stabs Ossrum twice. If I had actually thought about it I could have put several combines from the Invictors on Ossrum first and finished with Narn but oh well.
Ossyan survives and runs for cover
 The battle mages bring in the driller and over 2 turns Hypnos tries to beat it down. Despite having full focus on the first round and Concentrated Power Hypnos didn't kill it. The Invictors move up and start combining on the Shield Corps.

Ossrum responds by running into mid field and killing and Invictor, the Bokur kills another.

Hypnos finishes off the Driller and the Battle Mages along with the Invictors take out the Shield Corps. Ossyan tags the Ogrun with a Chrono Phage.

Ossrum concedes at the start of his turn.
 Victory to Ossyan.

Game 2 vs Legion. This is a new player to the game so I should go soft on him, but hes playing Legion. No remorse.  

 I'm pretty sure his list was

Bethayne & Belphagor
Blighted Nyss Archers (Leader and 9 Grunts)
Blighted Nyss Archers Officer & Standard
Blighted Nyss Hex Hunters (Leader and 9 Grunts)
Bayal, Hound of Everblight

First turn quicken went on the to the Battle Mages, the rest of the army advanced or ran. He responded in kind.

 The AFG knocks a hole in the hex Hunters with a Blasted Earth shot and the Battle Mages walk 8" to engage them and kill 2 more. The Invictors start combining and clearing out the Nyss Archers. 2 Combine on the Shredder and put some hurt in.

The Hex hunters clean up the Battle Mages with help from the Shredder.
Belphagor moves up to arc a couple of splinter spiny shatter whatever things and tags my Arcanist.
The Carnivean moves in and sprays down a couple of models, doing minimal damage. Ossyan responds by feating and quickening himself, he skirts around the AFG and tags the Carnivean with a Chronophage.
The AFG opens up with 3 shots and 3/4 kills the Carnivean, the Invictors follow up and finish it off with combines. This leaves room for Hypnos to walk forward and shoot Belphagor, Void Locking it and doing about 1/2 of its boxes.
 Narn on the left charges the Shredder. The charge fcame up as a point of contention as a by stander asserted the quirk about both models maintaining line of sight to eachother. I assured him that the 3" move combined with Acrobatics let me clear his base move 3" and maintain line of sight, however because I didn't make a point of showing it to my opponent I made the attacks without the charge bonus, and converted the kill anyway.
A similar situation came up when I was moving Hypnos past the invictors, he had a comfortable 1/4" on either side but because of his arms coming down and the Invictors gunblades. Models got bumped and the bystander not my opponent called me out on it. It didnt matter, but this is a little frustrating. Not that it was the bystander that was pulling me up but, ok I should bring my opponent over to watch my move. Regardless I'm a very forgiving player and will generally give the opponent benefit of the doubt. "is he inside feat?" "no but if you were 2mils closer he would be, assuming you can measure control lets just nudge your guy forward and go from there."
After Narn chopped up the Shredder he sprinted into the bush.
 The Nyss archers put down more arrows on the Invictors. Invictors defense and armor was enough to  weather mostly all of the Nyss shots but the automatic corrosion that was given them by... something? saw them all bar the standard bearer and the 2 by the AFG melting away. Belphagor advanced, unable to arc or be forced and slapped Hypnos a couple of times, a Shredder to the far right went Rabid and peed on the AFG's leg.
 Ossyan camped focus, upkept quicken on himself and toed his zone. The AFG rolled up 4 shots and clears out the Hex Hunter and Bayal. One Invictor courageously shields Ossyan and shoots a Nyss and the other stabs the remaining Hex Hunter with his gunblade. Hypnos just thumps Belphagor a couple times leaving him with one operational aspect.
Narn charged out of the bush. This was a little tricky I could have just killed 2 Nyss and engaged as many as I could have but I felt like giving him a fighting chance, or going for the kill.... actually knowing he had 3 transfers I was quite certain I wouldn't kill him. Anyway Narn put something like 17 damage on Bethany and she transferred it to a Shredder, who died and she took 5 from the overflow.

The Nyss archers couldn't put damage on Ossyan so Bethany went for a Gallows assassination run. Poor guy, I know from Garyth, (not Kruegar, cause Gallows ass runs work with Kreugar) usually Gallows ass runs are doomed for failure. Anyway first hits no damage and second misses. 
I position to score maximum points the next round and Narn slashes at Bethany killing her.

Victory to Ossyan
