Battle Report #49 and #50: Caine2 vs Makeda2

After playing some Caine2 games against Baldur2 it was time to try the newly nerfed Caine2 into a matchup where he used to rock hard: Caine2 against Makeda2. Hans is running the Skorne forces.

Captain Allister Caine (75 points)


Back to my normal Caine2 list.


Captain Allister Caine
* Reinholdt
* Centurion
* Hunter
Journeyman Warcaster
* Firefly
Gun Mage Captain Adept
Ragman
Rhupert
6 Rangers
5 Storm Lances
10 Trencher Infantry

Supreme Archdomina Makeda (75 points)


The trick in  this list is Makeda2 using Stay Death on her army of Tough & Steady kitties, either grinding me down or going for an assassination with the crazy mobility (up to 18" non-linear threat, including a 5" jump).


Supreme Archdomina Makeda (Makeda2)
* Basilisk Krea
* Despoiler
2x Mortitheurge Willbreaker
Tyrant Radheim
Void Spirit
2x5 Praetorian Ferox
4 Paingiver Beast Handlers
Tyrant Commander & Standard Bearer

Tyrant Commander Hans is ready to deal the pain.

Deployment


I have never played this before, so I dunno. Hans wins the die roll and I decide to skew, maybe get one more turn of shooting.




Turn 1


Cats move up.



I circle left.




Turn 2


Boy do the kitties hit hard. Two Arcane Shielded Lances go down. Tyrant Radheim hits Caine2 hard, but he lives.




I put Grievous Wounds on three kitties and kill them, leaving way, way too many alive.




Clearly I cannot survive the next turn. We shake hands.

Skorne wins by assassination!

Post Mortem


This is one matchup where the nerfs to Caine are super bad! This matchup used to be a walk in the park for Caine2, since he could put Grievous on almost everything and murder a whole lot of kitties. Now that I can only kill around 3 a turn, things have changed a lot.

We talked through the game and clearly I made things a buit easy by going so aggressive and allowing him to jam so hard. We reset and try again!




The next game went exactly the same way. I tried to feat and not use Grievous and try to see how much I could get away just by volume of attacks. The answer: Not much.

    1. Yeah. We even tried it one more time, haven't had time to write the batrep yet. Don't get your hopes up, that's all I say. :D
