Battle Report #77: Maddox vs Vlad1

I decided to try out a variant Maddox list, where the Stormclad is replaced by twin Chargers. I also replace Acosta with Arlan, since repairs are more useful with multiple ranged jacks. The idea is to bring it a bit of ranged threat at the cost of some melee punch.

Major Beth Maddox (75 points)

Deployment


Vlad wins the roll. I decide to go for a skew and try to dominate one zone from turn 2 onwards.



Round 1


Vlad moves up.



I make two major mistakes here. If I want to play this aggressively, I must commit harder. Also, I should have placed the lights further to the right so they can contest and pressure the right side Winter guard.



Round 2


I am rightly punished for my weak play. Vlad can remove enough models, without committing heavily, to prevent me from clearing the zone.




I have to option of doing a half-assed feat on just a few models, or not. I decide to not feat, but fail to clear the zone. Also, I start to lose points in the right zone. The game is lost.

0-1




Round 3


Vlad kills most of my Lances and I can no longer prevent him from winning on scneario.

0-2




Post Mortem


I skewed too much, and I did not commit hard enough. Vlad1 is strong and the Rocketeers are really scary, but with such poor play I had no chance.
