Battle Report #75: Haley2 vs Stryker1 (Internal Affairs VIII #2)

After that long fight against Axis I meet my old nemesis from Norwegian Masters again. This time we will not have a bullshit Nemo3 against Stryker1 match, but a real fight! I was thinking about dropping Maddox here, but I want to see if Haley2 or Stryker1 can win this one. And also I have some bad experience with getting list locked recently...

Deployment


Lasse wins the die roll and puts his Stormwall on the right. My plan is then to clear the left flag and spend my forces capping that area, use the small Lance unit to harass the other flag, and use my Stormwall to physically block him out near the central stone.





Round 1


He runs up.



I Accelerate my Stormwall up and set up outside his Lance threat ranges (mine are 2" longer due to Telekinesis - something that is quite important in Lance on Lance action!




Round 2


I get jammed on the left flank. The Stormwall shoots away two Lances, silly of me to put 2 in range of his big guns. His other 3 right flank Lances move down to pin down the last Lance, nice play there!




Fireflies and Lances have no problems clearing the jam. I do what every Haley2 player must not do, I forget to feat.

1-0





Round 3


His Stormwall is trapped between his objective and the central stone, so he proceeds to just shoot and charge me a lot. My Stormwall is half dead. A pod contests. Lasse seems to be quite confused since I forgot to feat, so he also forgets to feat.




Now I feat, kill the objective and kill more models in that central cluster****.

3-0




Round 4

He can't do much under my feat, but caps the right objective, and feats.

3-1




I cap yet again.

4-1

Round 5


Finally he finishes off my Stormwall, which did an excellent job keeping his entire army busy for the entire game.

I kill the only contesting piece, and win!

5-1




Cygnar wins by scenario!

Post Mortem


Typical Cygnar Haley2 game here, trading pieces for scenario points all game long! I am 2-0 so far, this is going well! :D
