Batrep Garyth vs Absylonia 50 points

Back at what must be what is called a FLGS. 

Had 3 games that afternoon. Now a week ago so exact details may be muddled, however no more than they usually are I'm sure.

Idle shitーchat.

After my 2 games with Issyria I needed to change things up, I find her a horribly limiting caster to play with.

Playing with Issyria is like being held captive in a straight jacket and tied to chair while a james bond villan wails on your nuts through a hole in said chair with a pillowcase full of rocks. Despite the efforts of all of your flailing and requests to scratch delicate itches in the face of adversity, you can't achieve anything. You are waiting for that one chance where your captor isn't paying attention to deliver an exceptionally devastating head butt in the hopes that this will give you enough time to escape.

In other words I find playing with her a painful and maddening struggle entwined with a plan to win in one maneuver, which if fails ends up all Casino Royale.

Anyway if casters were scenarios then Garyth is. A fine cigar, a fine cigar with a fine whisky with a fine shoulder rub from your super fine partner who is praising you after your excellent game of DOTA, wherein you sat in the forest farming for 40 minutes and then stomped face gratuitously without any skill or effort because your motherfucking AntimaGereth.

The lists.


Some Shredders. 4?
Blighted Ogrun Warspears and the UA.
Maybe one of those fury sucking succubus exploding things.
One of those dog thing light war beasts.


Motherfucking AntimaGereth.
Dahlia "Silencer" Hallyr & Skarath.
Elara Tyrio of the Third Chamber.
Sylys "giv me mana" Wyshnalyr of the light, of the light.
Aiyanna & Holt.
Full Infiltrators with 3yriss.
Battle Mages.
2 Arcanist
2 Griffons on Elara
Chimera on Gareth.

I go first.
Garyth calls mid lane, Elara top and Dahlia bottom.
Infiltrators run forward and spread out, preparing for the worst.
Elara sends her Griffons through the forest which 3yriss is lurking in.

Looking at the tables now I would say I had the terrain heavily in my favor. But then he is playing Legion so whatever.

Dahlia has Haunting Melody up.
Mirage is on the Infiltrators
Elara has battle charged set.

Reading the table correctly, my opponent sees my only heavy on the far flank, so he runs his beasts forward not fearing what my multitude of power 11 and 12s can do.
Forced evolution goes on the Angelius and, Carnage? Goes on to the Scythean. Proteus hangs back behind the ruins and tries to tentacle an Infiltrator.

I couldn't physically get more than 4 Infiltrators on the Angelius, which was my primary target.
Come to think of it I don't know why it was my primary target but it was.
Order of activation was something like this.
Chimera takes no focus but apparitions. 
Infiltrators also apparition with Mirage paid for by Sylys.
Sylys activates and whispers sweet nothings to Gareth.
Gareth activates, boosts a death sentence at the Angelius.
Shoots it twice for good measure.
Aiyanna and Holt activate, Aiyanna kisses the Ogrun and Holt shoots one in a fit of jealousy.
Infiltrators activate, thanks to 3yriss fearless leadership, from behind in the bush. They charge the beasts, only 4 make it on to the Angelius.
Despite only 4 Infiltrators charging the Angelius they kill it. However the 5 on the Scythean don't quite finish it off. That's ok I have Griffons. 
Arcanist activate and concentrated power the Griffons who have a focus each from Elara.
With Scythean on about 5 boxes this should be easy. 
First Griffon charges and whiffs. Second Griffons charges hits and whiffs damage.
Dahlia sings her Haunting Melody and runs towards the Ogrun. Skarath sprays over 3, kills the UA and tries to tag Absylonia behind them but misses. 
Battle Mages activate, one walks into engagement with the Scythean and with a well placed Force bolt puts it on one box. The rest pepper the Ogrun.

What really happened is Garyth called a gank on mid lane and with Elaras and Sylys' help and put their carry down. Then he buggered off to the Jungle and left the creeps to push with Sylys. Dahlia farmed.

This turn I forget his activation order.
But I do know Absylonia feats and saves the Scythean.
2 Shredders go rabid but actually fail to kill anything.
The Scythean wrecks one Griffon messes the other up and ruins a bunch of Infiltrators.
Proteus and the dog didn't manage to achieve much.
The Ogrun could not assault or charge thanks to Dahlia, so walk into combat.
Absylonia also put down a no focus aoe on the Griffons. The Ogrun mostly missed all their attacks, the only real hurt was put on by the Scythean.

On left scenario the Magister combo smites one shredder into the other, Killing the target.
So it's been about 40 minutes. Garyth is happily camping in the forest, keeping Mirage up.

The Infiltrators kill the Scythean and put some hurt on Proteus and kill the succubus thing. 

The left zone is cleared so Garyth can dominate. 

Aiyanna keeps flirting with the Ogrun and Holt keeps killing them, Skarath picks off a few. The Battle Mages get together and push what is still alive in the zone, out of the zone. I score 2.

Time is pressed so we forget the last photo. Absylonia can't get away from the Infiltrators and stay out of the kill box, so does a ballsy move. He hopes he will clear the zone and dominate it, but fails and Absylonia is left sitting in the zone. The Strike Force Mirage, Garyth death sentences Absylonia and puts on a couple shots and then the Infiltrators finish her off.
