Battle Report #62: Haley2 vs Ragnor (Norwegian Masters 2017 #1)

First game in Norwegian Masters! I meet Swedish player Johan Sånesson, who seems to be coming down with the flu or something. I think he has Horgle2 as his other list. Haley2 is usually good against trolls so I drop her. He drops a double gargantuan Ragnor list. This seems like a lot to chew through...

Major Victoria Haley (75 points)

Theme: Storm Division
Objective: Armory

Major Victoria Haley (Haley2)
* Squire
* Stormwall
* Thorn
Journeyman Warcaster
* Firefly
Major Katherine Laddermore
5+3 Storm Lances

Ragnor Skysplitter, the Runemaster (75 points)

Theme: The Power of Dhunia

Ragnor Skysplitter, the Runemaster (Ragnor1)
* Trollkin Runebearer
* Earthborn Dire Troll
* Mountain King
* Glacier King
* Troll Axer
Janissa Stonetide
5 Troll Whelps
4 Krielstone Bearer & Stone Scribes
* Stone Scribe Elder


Horrible scenario really, I cannot force him to split up. We'll see how hard this is...

Turn 1

He moves up.

I move up.

Turn 2

Trolls move up more, shooting Laddermore but she stays on the horse. Ragnor feats.

I envelop him and feat, hoping to threathen his backline.

Turn 3

He shuffles a bit and shoots a Storm Lance. I have to take care to spread the Lances out in a better way so that no-one goes out of command if the leader dies...

I go for one gargantuan but fail to kill it. Storm Lances go into his back line.

Turn 4

Rage and Pulverizer = one really really dead Stormwall. My objective is destroyed, too.


I have lost on attrition, but Ragnor is exposed. I remove the stone, hit him with a barrage of spells from Haley, and follow up with shots from the Firefly, Laddermore and Storm Lances. I barely fail, he is left at 3 boxes!

Turn 5

Om nom nom. Haley's spear Echo makes for a nice toothpick after a meal.

At least I got eaten by some good looking trolls!

Trollbloods win by assassination!

Post Mortem

That matchup is really hard on a dead scenario like this. I could have gone on the right side and tried to get Haley onto a flag, possibly, and maybe jammed him out.

In retrospect, maybe Nemo3 could have done this better... even he has problems taking out 2 gargantuans, but if one dies then it might get very hard to protect Ragnor afterwards.
