Battle Report #9: Caine2 vs Iron Mother Directrix

I'm trying out my Caine2 list against Lars' Iron Mother.

Captain Allister Caine (75 points)

Captain Allister Caine (+27)
- Reinholdt (4)
- Stormwall (39)
Journeyman Warcaster (4)
- Firefly
Captain Arlan Strangewayes (4)
Gorman (4)
Gun Mage Captain Adept (5)
Lanyssa Ryssyl (3)
Ragman (4)
Rhupert (4)
6 Rangers (9)
6 Trencher Infantry (10)
- 2 Trencher Infantry Rifle Grenadier (4)

The Altan model is proxy for my Ragman model that someone had borrowed without asking me. Whoever you are, you owe me a beer!

Iron Mother Directrix (75 points)

Iron Mother (+27)
- Prime Axiom (38)
- Assimilator x3 (48)
- Corollary (6)

Algorithmic Dispersion Optifex (2)
Attunement Servitors (4)
Optifex Directive (4)


Lars goes first.

Turn 1

Everyone moves up. Caine2 gets Bullet Dodger and the Trenchers get Heightened Reflexes.

Turn 2

Lars sacrifices a Assimilator to force me to move up and kill it. He also shoots away most of my Rangers.

Turn 3

Unfortunately his counterattack is not strong enough to kill off the Arcane Shielded Stormwall. Gorman dies, but Ragman sacrifices some Trenchers to stay alive, I need to watch my solo spacing so he can't Ground Pounder so much. It's hard with 4" AOEs though.

Ragman, the Stormwall, the Firefly, Caine feat and some Trencher charges turn Prime Axiom and another Assimilator into scrap. I have won the attrition war, but Caine is slightly exposed.

Turn 4

Last ditch assassination run by Iron Mother by running up the last Assimilator and arcing two boosted Shrapnel Swarms. It's not enough. Hitting both on 11 on 3d6 and then rolling 19 damage on 4 dice is only a 0.5*0.5*0.09 = 2% success chance. 2% is better than nothing though, so it's the right play.

Lars cannot possibly survive my turn and concedes.

Cygnar wins!

Again it seems uphill for Convergence. The Axiom hits hard, but still it's difficult to kill Arcane Shielded Stormwalls.
