Norwegian Masters 2013 - Game 2

Hoarluk2 vs Morvahna (Tobias "The Godfather" Olsson, Circle, Sweden)

Both his lists were, if I recall correctly, rather beast heavy, so again I pick Doomshaper for my matchup. Hoarluk2 outthreats most Circle lists, so I should have a good shot at getting ahead.


Morvahna the Autumnblade (*6pts)
* Gorax (4pts)
* Ghetorix (11pts)
* Warpwolf Stalker (10pts)
Shifting Stones (2pts)
Tharn Bloodtrackers (Leader and 9 Grunts) (8pts)
* Nuala the Huntress (2pts)
Gallows Grove (1pts)
Gatorman Witch Doctor (3pts)

I'm sorry about the poor picture quality, this part of the room was quite dark.

I picked the table side with the nice little wall for Doomshaper to hide behind.

Round 1


He moves up, and I move up, placing my beasts outside the threat range of his beasts, but close enough to start threatening the scoring zones.

Round 2

Ghetorix, Gatorman, and Gorax.

I get engaged by a horde of infinitely respawning Tough Zombie Bloodtrackers, but they don't do all that much damage. Hey, that would make a great B-movie title. "The Revenge of the Infinitely Respawning Tough Zombie Bloodtrackers". I would pay to see it.

I start playing whack-a-mole with some of the Bloodtrackers, knowing that they will soon be back. But one has to start somewhere...

Then, disaster strikes! My measuring tape implodes. Damn crap quality Swedish IKEA tapes. Forunately Tobias has an extra tape with him, which I get to borrow for the rest of the tournament. Tack så mycket! :D

Round 3.


Rök is surrounded by small base infantry, which is not *really* like being surrounded.
Most of the Bloodtrackers are re-animated by Morvahna and I get charged again, but they can't crack my armor. Shifting zones try to spread out to protect the right zone, and the Stalker backs out, to avoid being snacked upon by Mulg.

I'm pretty sure Mulg clears the left zone of stones... it's hard to protect against Reach and Goad. Rök gets Primal and tramples over the Bloodtrackers to engage Ghetorix, rolling fire. Three hits and Ghetorix is down. This allows me to also berserk, kill the Gorax, Goad, and swing once at Morvahna. She transfered to the Stalker, taking out its mind.

I score 1 control point. My opponent has a big problem now... he's behind in the attrition game, and without Primal, he can no longer kill Mulg.

Round 4.


It's all but over, and Mulg captures my second control point

Rök was badly wounded at this point, and died to Morvahna and her support. He desperately charged Mulg with the Stalker, hoping for a miracle, but the dice did not provide one.

I use Mulg to kill the Stalker, and get another Control Point.

Round 5.


The only thing he can do now is run the Bloodtrackers to occupy the zone, but Mulg has no problem clearing them out.


I win 3-0 on control points.


Conclusion

I'm up to 2-0, and am starting to feel really good about this!

I felt in control during this match. His tarpit is extremely annoying, but it isn't really a threat to me. My beasts outthreat his by quite a lot, and with Wild Aggression and Primal hitting Circle beasts is not very hard. Tobias was a nice guy, and I enjoyed playing against him.

Next up... Szymon Ratka, proud member of the visiting hardcore Polish trio, and his Menoth. I was worried about this one, the Poles were supposed to be really good (and they were), and Menoth is one of the factions I feel a bit weak against.
