Trying out Tier 4 EKreoss against Ron in his post-retirement game... - Ace Ashley Barrido Baron

Turn 1 Kreoss: Everything advances, Kreoss casts some defensive spells on the errants and daughters..Then Turn 2 for Skorne: Posse and Bronzeback charges and kills the daughters. Quote and photo by Ace Ashley Barrido Baron

Turn 2 Kreoss: Pops feat, then everything charges, killing a bronzeback, a unit of posse, and a cyclops savage, Ron then conceded after the turn.

So... Players don't want me playing Legion (tired of eLylyth) so I borrowed a Tubby list. - Stanley Chua

Deployment. Quote and photo by Stanley Chua

Menoth turn 1. Everyone runs and advances. Quote and photo by Stanley Chua
Skorne Turn1: Posse charges some Errants. They kill a couple and jam as much as possible. Everything else advances. Quote and photo by Stanley Chua
Menoth Turn2: Kreoss advances and feats. Between both units of Errants and Daughters, I lose all the Posse, and a Gladiator. Quote and photo by Stanley Chua
Skorne Turn2: Things are looking bad. Tubby is in the open. I noticed that one of the bastions in the back of the army is facing Kreoss. 8 Influence and 3 hits later = Dead Kreoss.

Thoughts on the game... Didn't realize how scary the Kreoss List is. It's so quick and hits hard. Had Ace not had made a mistake, I would definitely have lost. I miss my Ravagores. - Stanley Chua

35PC Close Quarters - Dominar Rasheth victorious over Grand Exemplar Kreoss via assassination

Game 3 - Lord Arcanist Ossyan vs Lylyth, Shadow of Everblight (Lylyth2)

So I lied. I love my Legion. I can't help but keep playing them. I don't need friends (I'm so lonely) - Stanley Chua

Deployment. A side note: The RET player (Benedict) is super new and maybe this wasn't the best match up for him to learn the game. Quote and photo by Stanley Chua

Legion Turn1: I advance, cast Shadow Pact and put out some scather templates. Quote and photo by Stanley Chua
Retribution Turn1: Ossyan and group advances. (No Pic)
Legion Turn2: I opt not to feat and shoot out some more templates killing a few MHSF and Sentinels on each flank. (No Pic)

Retribution Turn2: Ossyan and groups closes the gap and shoots but does minimal damage, but killing a Sheppard. Quote and photo by Stanley Chua
Legion Turn3: So the people watching the game tells me to ends this and put Ossyan out of his misery. So I do with 3 shots from Lylyth and a 2 from a Ravagore. Quote and photo by Stanley Chua
Thoughts on the game: Felt bad for Benedict. Not the game experience I really wanted to show someone just learning the game. But I'm pretty comfortable with my list. Mainly playing Lylyth2 to test out Zuriel with her. I have to say it this combo is crazy good and as I can easily get 3 or 4 extra fury of work with Zuriel's animus. Zuriel is also a solid anchor at 12/19. or 13/20 with tenacity holding a zone or flag. -Stanley Chua

35PC - Lylyth, Shadow of Everblight victorious over Lord Arcanist Ossyan via assassination

Game 4 - Ravyn, the Eternal Light, vs Kommander Sorscha (Sorscha1)

35pts. Khador (Sorscha winterguard deathstar) vs Retribution (Ravyn Dawnguard combined arms)

Raf made a mess of the terrain but probably helped me since I was mostly using ranged attacks. This was after round one where basically everyone just advanced or ran forward.

Not really familiar with 2015 scenarios but this was the two medium base flags that you had to stick a warcaster beside it to score points.

My first time to actually USE a colossal (borrowed Han's Hyperion) hehe. He did not disappoint! See that group of stealthy assassins? A lucky 5" pie plate deviation will cover them soon. Killing half of the group, a sniper solo and leaving the underboss at 1 life. Meanwhile my invictors take up places in the other side, atop a hill for elevation shenanigans. Quote and photo by Johann Louie Ong
Sentinels also take up places on another hill just in case Conquest blasts them. Dead pile of assassins on the left side of the table. Hurray for armor 11 dudes! Quote and photo by Johann Louie Ong
The dead pile. Invictors took out granediers but some grunt always picked up the rocket kits lol (Ravyn used feat to ensure some hits) Quote and photo by Johann Louie Ong
Khador retaliated by killing these guys with grapeshot and some gang fighting. At this point I got impatient and moved Ravyn to te flag to get some points. Conquest took advantage and knocked her down (with a 1" slam shot) for 8 damage. That movement brought her out of range for the next shot (thankfully) Quote and photo by Johann Louie Ong
Endgame. Having miraculously survived Conquest, Retribution forces wiped out as much infantry as they can. Sentinels used Vengeance to clear the assassins. Invictors used CRA to clear some winterguard and take some potshots at Sorscha, hitting her for 6. Hyperion advanced into the forest to get a clear shot at Sorscha (who also moved to the flag to score points instead of hanging out at the back) boosted big cannon shot hits. +1 to damage rolls. I boosted damage. Quote and photo by Johann Louie Ong
An amazing 4 damage dealt. Enemy warcaster was down to 7. Hyperion had to use i boosted nipple cannons to take her out. Quote and photo by Johann Louie Ong
Ravyn could also have taken her out after Hyperion (backup assassination) final placement of models. Sentinels ran to the side ready to beat on Conquest next round. Quote and photo by Johann Louie Ong
