Battle Report #84: Nemo3 vs Vayl2 (Internal Affairs IX #2)

After getting grinded down by Jarle in first previous match in Internal Affairs IX, I face a visiting player!

I like Nemo3 into Legion. The high damage shooting on feat turn roasts Legion heavies. Main issue with Nemo3 against Vayl2 is keeping him un-assassinated.

Sigurd's list is in the new Legion theme, Oracles of Annihilation, that is soon about to be released!

Deployment


I win the die roll. My idea here is to put Nemo3 behind the wall, shoot everything I can, and hopefully have him survive the inevitable assassination run.






Round 1


I forget about Apparition on the Seraph, which means I leave the Electrified Lances too close. Force Field goes up on Nemo3 and Lightning Shroud on one of the Fireflies.




Only one Storm Lance is killed, though, since my opponent makes a mistake with the order of activation and uses Chasten only after the Blessed Seraph attacks. Another Lance falls to the Bolt Thrower on the other side.

Vayl2 has placed herself base to base with the Archangel. Siguard notices and moves in all the solos he can as well, to soak up some leaps.




Round 2


Nemo3 feats and goes to town. I arc two Chain Lightnings at the Archangel first. Then the Archangel is shot off the table by Dynamo. I do not manage to kill the Seraph, though, it lives at 9 boxes. The Bolt Thrower is also badly hurt.

But... I am camping only 1 focus. In hindsight I should only have cast 1 Chain Lightning.





Vayl feats. A path is clared for the Seraph but it is not able to get all the way around the wall. DEF 18 is enough, Vayl does not land all her spells, and I am standing on 3 boxes afterwards.

1-0




Round 3


I proceed to murder everything. Only Vayl2 and one of the Blackfrist Shard are left on the table. Nemo camps 7 Focus.

4-0





Vayl channels spells through the last guy, but again it is not enough. I am left on a single box!

5-0




Cygnar wins on scenario!


Post Mortem


Clearly it was a mistake to not camp 4 Focus, but I was lucky and lived. Vayl2 can almost always get an angle and since I can get so much up on attrition on the feat, it's just dumb to not play safe.
