Battle Report #63: Haley2 vs Vlad2 (Norwegian Masters 2017 #2)

After that rough double Gargantuan fight in round #1 I am paired against Glenn, a fellow Norwegian that I have not met before.

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

Vladimir Tzepesci, The Dark Champion (75 points)


Vlad is an interesting caster, since he can turn any of his chaff models into crazy killers.


Glenn, The Dark Champion
Vladimir Tzepesci, The Dark Champion
* 2x Kodiak
2x Man-O-War Drakhun
2x Manhunter
Kovnik Jozeg Grigorovich
2x Kayazy Eliminators
5 Iron Fang Uhlans
6 Winter Guard Rifle Corps

Deployment


Vlad wins the roll and off we go. I put the min Lances to harass the left flank and deny points, while setting up the rest of the army to grab the right zone.


Turn 1


Khador moves up.




I scoot up, with 2 of the left side Lances outside Uhlan charge range. Storm Lances are in position to clear the right zone.




Turn 2


The Winter Guard move up and actually manage to shoot Laddermore off her horse! I should have kept her a bit further back, I guess.




Turn 2 is Haley Feat turn. Stormwall smashes one Kodiak to bits. I forget the countercharge from the right side Drakhun, but he rolls terribly and fails to kill a Lance. Storm Lances and Laddermore clear the zone and jam up the Drakhun and Winter Guard as well as they can.

2-0





Turn 3


Vlad feats. Some of the left flank Uhlans are outside my feat range, and a couple of Lances go down. I should have placed them further away! The right side Drakhun murders two Storm Lances all by himself. Drakhuns are beastly! A couple of Winter Guard toe into my zone.


2-1





I smash the other Kodiak to bits. Lances and Laddermore clear my zone again and get rid of that pesky Drakhun.


4-1





Turn 4



The left zone is cleared but there is no way for Vlad to do much about the right zone. A couple of Eliminators go  to contest.

4-3




Haley2 blasts away the Eliminators with Arcane Bolts. The Stormwall toes into his zone.

5-3





Post Mortem


Typical Haley2 play here, using her feat both to get up on attrition and start capping points quickly! I feel I played this one solidly, I did make some mistakes with losing Laddermore early and some poor Lance positioning,
