Battle Report #53: Nemo3 vs Absylonia2

Time to put my 10 Storm Lance Nemo3 list to the test! The first game is against Absolynia2, piloted by our resident Press Ganger Alex.

Artificer General Nemo (75 points)


All the cavalry!

Deployment


The Dragon wins the roll. The sides seem pretty equal. Absylonia deploys centrally. I deploy Lances on both sides and the rest in the middle. Nemo3 aims for the right side. Hellmouth pops up behind the hut.




Turn 1


The Deathstalker runs into the forest, well within my Lightning range. Proteus gets Bracer.




Left side Lances get Arcane Shield (ARM 20), right side Lances get Electrify (ARM 19), Nemo's Firefly gets Lightning Shroud, and Nemo gets Magnetic Field. I tag the lance in the forest with Flare, and then a firefly bounces off the Lance and fries the Deathstalker.




Turn 2


Proteus munches on the Storm Lance in the forest. The Carniveans use Spiny Growth, so all the heavies in the center are now ARM 20.





Junior's Firefly runs up to act as a spark node. Nemo3 feats. A lot of shooting kills the Carnivean, but I have many low rolls on the leaps and leave Proteus at 10 or so boxes.

I played this a bit bad on the right side. I should have used a Nemo3 shot to clear some tentacles and gotten more Storm Lances free to charge the Hellmouth.

1-0




Turn 3


Absylonia feats, punches back and kills a Firefly, Dynamo, and a couple of left flank Lances.




The Firefly and Lances kill off Proteus and the Seraph and clear the right zone.

3-0





Turn 4


Absolynia has no way to prevent me from scoring two more points, and goes for an impossible assassination run with the Carnivean. It fails.




Cygnar wins by scenario!

Post Mortem


A good start! Nemo3 hits like a truck. The central terrain piece made it hard to get enough shots into the heaviesm and I rolled low, but still I out-attritioned Absylonia just fine.
