Ossyan v eKaya 35 points batrep





 35 points

  •  Ossyan
  • Hypnos
  • Halbs + UA
  • Invictors + UA
  • Artificer
  • Arcanist
  • Houseguard Thane
  • Magister

Circle turn 1

  •  eKaya & Laris
  • Gettorix
  • Pureblood
  • Tharn Ravagers + UA
  • Shifting Stones
  • Winter Argus
I let the new guy who was learning and watching this game pick my caster. My opponent chose his. eKaya is a headache for Ret at the best of times but against Ossyan this was going to hurt, stealth heavies are so not cool.

Ret turn 1.

 Herp Derp

What I did

  1. Quickened the Halbs.
  2. Put Admonition on Hyperion.
  3. Sat behind a hill.
  4. gave Halbs Desperate pace with the Thane.
  5. Ran the Halbs to engage and spread out.
  6. Advanced with the rest of my stuff.

What I should have done

  1. Quickened the Halbs.
  2. Admonition Hyperion.
  3. Advaned with Invictors, Mini feat, combine ranged attack on Ravagers.
  4. Activate Thane give Halbs desperate pace.
  5. Charge with Halbs engaging up to 3 Ravageres, with Mini feat potentially 6 Casualties.

Result: Here ravagers kill half my army and have a load of Heart Tokens because the pressure of having to take my first turn in under 7 minutes is way too much.

Circle turn 2

 He has me right where he wants me.

 Ravagers charge and kill stuff, eat many hearts.
Army advances into a nice threatening positon.

Ret turn 3

 Damage Control.

 What I did
  1. Ossyan gives 2 focus to Hypnos, Feats, aims and shoots at a Tharn but fails to hit. hangs out.
  2. Invictors advance and drop CRA's into the Tharn  killing a couple. Everything that can tough does touch at least once.
  3. Houseguard Thane gives the Halberdiers desperate pace. 
  4. Hypnos advances to withing 5" and Shoots at Laris Void Locking it.
  5. Artificer is called upon to dispatch a Ravager hoping to clear a charge lane from my Halberdiers to the Pureblood. He fails due to tough.
  6. Magister steps in to dispatch pesky ravagers blocking charge lane for Halberdiers, he also fails.
  7. Halberdiers settle for charging the Ravagers finishing off all but the Chieftain. Forget to reform.

What I should have done.
  1. Nothing. Fuck tough, its broken as shit .Fix please PP.

Circle turn 3

Everything is under control.

  • Pureblood tramples over a few Halberdiers killing them
  • Gettorix charges Hypnos who Admonitions to safety
  • but is then charged by the Winter Argus.

Ret turn 4

 Might trick me once...

  1. Ossyan puts Admonition on himself and wonders off to the right.
  2. Invictors Melee up on the Pureblood while others CRA the Chieftan and a Shifting Stone.
  3. Hypnos walks around the Argus and completely fails to achieve anything.

Circle turn 4

 But your not gonna... oh wait.

  •  Winter Argus gets in the zone
  • Gettorix charges Ossyan who Admonitions again.
  • Laris charges the Thane and misses
  • Pureblood forgets to activate.

Ret turn 5

Oh yea, that.

  1. Hypnos gets into the zone and fails to do anything else.
  2.  Ossyan backs around Gettorix and shoots him to soften him up for the Invictors. But this triggers Hyper Aggressive and Gettorix advances into Ossyan.
  3. because the Invictors cannot shoot at either gettorix who is engaged, or Kaya who was stealth but is now engaged with Hypnos, they stand around and pull their dicks.

Circle turn 5.

 Wow so many mistakes.

Circle victory on assassination.

On both sides but mine were pretty epic. The pressure of 7 minute turns is something else all together different from chess clock or time pool.

The Circle player activated the rest of his army in an attempt to use a feat facilitated move to box Ossyan in so he couldn't admonition away. He was trying to move 0" but I had to tell him to forfeit his movement in order to simply not trigger my Admonition and kill me.
