Battle Report #10: Caine2 vs Kaelyssa

I have started painting two more models: Lynus and Edrea. The ability for Caine to scalpel out Spirit, Arc Node and Cortex increases his attrition potential a lot, and I want to see if it's worth it!


Captain Allister Caine (75 points)


Captain Allister Caine (+27)
* Reinholdt (4)
* Stormwall (39)
Journeyman Warcaster (4)
* Firefly (8)
Captain Arlan Strangewayes (4)
Gun Mage Captain Adept (5)
Ragman (4)
6 Rangers (9)
10 Trencher Infantry (10)
* 2 Trencher Infantry Rifle Grenadier (4)

Kaelyssa, The Night's Whisper (75 points)


Kaelyssa
* Hyperion (36)
* Banshee (18)
Lanyssa (3)
2x Arcanist Mechanik (4)
Nyss Hunters (19)
* Soulless Escort (1)
Dawnguard Sentinels (18)
* Officer & Standard (4)
* Soulless Escort (1)


Deployment


I go first so I go symmetrical. Colossals stare at each other. I pretty happy to see Nyss and the same side as Caine.



Turn 1


I move up. I no longer have Rhupert in the list, so Rangers hide in the forest. My plan is to move Caine 2 up and see if I can force the scenario.





Kaelyssa moves up and keep things a bit back to avoid having it all shot up.



Turn 2


Caine moves up. The Banshee is a bit close to some Nyss and i Trick Shot a couple away. Stormwall sets up outside his melee threat and drops Covering Fires to stop his Sentinels from charging me easily.



My Firefly gets shot up, but it's still moving with a few boxes left. The right zone is cleared and my opponent scores using Lanyssa.



Turn 3


Caine2 feats and shoots the Banshee off the table. Caine and my infantry leave only 2 Nyss alive. New covering fires go up to keep the poor Sentinels back. Lanyssa is shot and killed.

2-1



Nicholas is forced to contest. Sentinels pour into zone and kill the Firefly.

Turn 4


The Stormwall, Caine and the remaining support murder the Sentinels, leaving only a couple standind. Caine teleports away from Hyperion



Hyperion runs up to engage Caine. Kaelyssa is within 19" of Caine...




Turn 5


If I walk out of melee the Hyperion will get a swing, and boosted damage from a colossal can easily one-shot my favorite gunslinger. He needs a hard 9 to hit.

MAT 6+2 vs DEF 17 is a 28% chance to hit
3D6+8 vs 15 boxes + 5 boxes from focus camp is a 37.5% chance to one-shot
Chance of instant loss: 10% chance.


I decide to spend 2 focus to give myself Bullet Dodger and bring that roll up to 11. This changes the odds to:

MAT 6+2 vs DEF 19 is a 8% chance to hit
3D6+8 vs 15 boxes + 5 boxes from focus camp is a 37.5% chance to one-shot
Chance of instant loss: 3% chance.

The dice come up 9. Maybe Caine3 will get Future Sight!




The Rangers tag Kaelyssa, shoot her a bit, and then Caine gives her the rest of the clip, needing 5's to hit. Kaelyssa dies on the last shot!




Cygnar wins by assassination!


Post Mortem


Exciting game, this! Not much left on either side except the Colossals.

We discussed it afterwards, and thought that maybe Kaelyssa could have forced the issue by trying to win on scenario herself instead of going anywhere near Caine.
