Kaiju versus Jaeger, er... Gargantuan versus Colossal! Evidently, Emp Fernando has been upping his game with a Hobby Haven-amped list which involves Archdomina Makeda and an angry Mammoth! 

Came into the game with a Conquest and a nice mix of Khadoran infantry that can benefit from Vladimir Tzepesci, Dark Prince of Umbrey's Signs & Portents. But primarily, I wanted to see how Conquest would perform with Forced March and Signs & Portents online.

The main Skorne plan was to deliver long range death to my warcaster. My plan was to see some Signs & Portents-assisted Critical Devastation from the Conquest and Signs & Portents-assisted For The Motherland Combined Ranged Attacks from Winterguard Infantry.

My hand was forced when the Conquest stood too close to my objective, and would not have been able to get a Forced March Boundless Charge on the Mammoth. I had to resort to casting three Boundless Charge on the Great Bears, but sadly they were not able to take out the Skorne gargantuan. Even additional shots from the rest of the Khadoran force were unable to breach the Mammoth's solid armor.

The following turn, the Mammoth managed to bring the Khadoran warcaster down to three damage points using boosted Siege Battery shots powered by the Extoller Soulward's Guidance and the Mortitheurge Willbreaker's Puppet Master. Vladimir Tzepesci, Dark Prince of Umbrey, immediately sought refuge behind a nearby stone house.

The Mammoth was promptly dispatched by the Great Bears of Gallowswood, leaving Archdomina Makeda to rely on her Cyclops Raider and its Heavy Reiver. The warbeast savagely advanced closer to get a better shot at the Khadoran warcaster, but ignored the Great Bears of Gallowswood's Great Axes. Precision Strike free strikes made sure that the Skorne warbeast's spirit and mind were crippled. Failing to bring down Vladimir Tzepesci, Dark Prince of Umbrey, Emp promptly tapped out.

50PC Incoming: Khador's Vladimir Tzepesci, Dark Prince of Umbrey, victorious over Skorne's Archdomina Makeda via tapout
