Battle Report #67: Nemo3 vs Karchev (Team Tournament #1)

In the first game in the team tournament I get thrown under the bus end end up with a pretty bad matchup against Karchev, played by Odd-Erik. Nemo3 may hit hard, but Karchev has too many boxes to assassinate easily, and 8 Heavies is a lot to chew through.

Deployment


I win the die roll and go first, and spread out. Karchev bricks up in the middle, as Karchevs have done since time immemorial.




Turn 1


I run up and fan out, hoping to be able to get some angle.




Karchev moves up. Winter Guard fan out behind him, ready to be sacrificed.




Turn 2


Well, I guessed I played that a bit too defensively, probably I should have had the Lances a bit closer.

Anyway, I think I see an opening. A firefly runs in and jams up everything on the left flank, getting within 5" of Karchev. Thorn moves up. Nemo feats ands arcs a couple of Chain Lightnings through Thorn at Karchev, removing all his sac pawn targets. The GMCA moves up and tries to tag Karchev (should have done that first!), but missing on his 4+ roll. Lances assault as well as they can. It's all down to Dynamo! He needs 6's to hit... and misses on the two first rolls.




Nemo is well within reach of several Khador jacks so we shake hands.




Khador wins by assassination!

Post Mortem


Difficult matchup for Nemo, so I think I was right to go for it when I had a possible opening! A feated Dynamo does around 40 damage to ARM 19 Karchev if all the shots connect, and with the Chain Lightnings, two shots from Nemo, a Firefly shot, and a couple of assaulting Lances it could have happened.

My teammates win both their matches, so even if I failed Team Lightning Shroud is now 1-0, which is good!
