Battle Report #58: Haley2 vs Haley2 (Internal Affairs VII #3)

For the third game I face Haley2 Storm Division and Haley3. Obviously I cannot drop Nemo3 since he instantly loses to the Storm Division theme force. We both pick Haley2 with identical lists, and I look forward to one horribly boring slog where half our lists do nothing due to all the lightning immunity. Only difference is that I have Fuel Cache and he has Armory.

Nice Major Victoria Haley (75 points)

Deployment



Mirror mirror on the wall.

I win the die roll and the scenario is dead, so I might just as well claim some table space.





Turn 1


I zoom up the board.




Naughty Haley sets up shop just outside 13" of my Lances, and one Nice Storm Lance is shot off the board by Naughty Stormwall.





Turn 2


In a spectacularly silly maneuver I move up Nice Stormwall and try to pick off Naughty Thorn. I miss a shot and he steps away.

I also Telekinesis three of my left flank Nice Lances ahead so they can charge in and kill three Naughty Lances.






Naughty Haley forgets to feat. Naughty Stormwall moves in and punches one side away on Nice Stormwall.

Turn 3





It has actually never occurred to me that Haley2 can feat, send in a Stormwall, punch away one side on a Colossal, and then the other Colossal cannot really retaliate effectively with his broken arm. Then you can finish off the Colossal on the next turn. I did not realize at the time that that was actually his intended play, and since he failed to feat I could now do it to him instead.

Instead I thought I had lost since Naughty Stormwall would kill Nice Stormwall first. I therefore decided to Telekinesis Naughty Haley and fire at her with Nice Stormwall. The move failed miserably.

I was going to lose Nice Stormwall now, with no way to win after trading feats. We shook hands and at least I could get some food and rest before the final game, and have a look at the other games.

Naughty Cygnar wins by attrition!

Post Mortem


Well, I threw this game away after my opponent threw the game away. At least I learnt a really important play that might come in handy in future games!
