Battle Report #44: Caine2 vs Montador (Internal Affairs VI #3)

After facing Helynna with Haley2 I was ready for a third round. Now I face Amund's Mercenaries with Mantador and the Cephalyx dude spam. I cannot play Haley2 into 60+ Cephalyx so I drop Caine2. Amund drops Mondator.

Captain Allister Caine (75 points)

His list is very tanky. I will have to spend a long time to kill all those ARM21 heavies and ARM22 Galleon. but I think I have scenario opportunities.

He wins the die roll and goes first. I take the trench and the open terrain.

I deploy the Hunter on the left to stay in the small forest and deny the left zone. Caine goes in the middle with the Centurion and the Lances go far right.

Turn 1

Bart moves up. I move up and cloud up in front of Caine2 just in case. Rangers get Dirge of Mist and Lances get Arcane Shield. Caine2 gets Bullet Dodger and the Trenchers get Heightened Reflexes.

Turn 2

Bart feats and shoots some Trenchers, and a lucky shot kills a Storm Lance, needing 12 on 2D6!

Caine2 moves up and uses trick shots to kill half his Trenchers. Lances back out a bit so they can charge to clear the zone next turn.

Turn 3

Galleon toes into the zone and a Mangler kills my Firefly in two attacks! Bart is hiding behind a Nomad. First I look at an attrition play, I could use Ragman, feat with Caine and hit the Galleon a lot of times. But then I see that a few of the enemy Trenchers are about 10" away from Caine2. I measure it up, and from that position Caine2 can just barely see Bart.

Bart is at ARM19,  but this seems like a good opportunity! I really want to have the +2 to hit from Rangers. I use those awesome movement templates from Frozen Forge to measure up the 14" Ranger run around the Mangler and Trencher. It's possible!

The Ranger runs up.

Caine2 gets Pathfinder from Rhupert, charges the Trencher, feats, kills it with the first shot, misses a shot with snake eyes, but five shots is enough to kill Bart!

Post Mortem

This seemed difficult against so much armor, but Caine can often find a way! The GMCA prevents Bart from hiding behind the Galleon and that makes things a lot harder for him.

I am up 2-1 in the tournament, this is going well! The last fight will be Caine2 against Deneghra1.
