Battle Report #89: Sloan vs Ossrum

Today seems to be the day for trying out new stuff. After the previous Caine2 vs Stryker2 match, I borrow Kara Sloan and three Hunters from Jarle. I have been have huge problems with dealing with Ossrum and the Gunbunnies. I think I have lost every game I have played against them so far. Kara Sloan should have some game into it.

I have actually never played Sloan before, so I apologize in advance for this battle report. Really. You should go read something else. I'm warning you. This is a waste of time.

Deployment


Still here? Well, don't say you were not warned.

Ossrum wins the die roll and elects to go first.




Round 1


Ossrum feats and everything runs up.




I am unsure about what to do. Feat into his feat and kill 3, maybe 4 bunnies? Or wait a turn and see what I can do then? I elect to wait and take some shots. I cripple 2 bunnies.




Round 2


Ossrum proceeds to go into his zone and blast away three Hunters





I feat, but I am already severely down on attrition, and I am also being pressured hard on scenario. I take out a couple of bunnies but it will not be enough.

0-1

It's obviously lost, so we just stop here. I will lose both the remaining Hunters, and there is no way I can contest both zones or deal enough damage from now on.

Ossrum wins!


Post Mortem


Out of three plays I choose the worst one. I did have one play I did not think about at all - move the Stormwall next to a forest to block line of sight to all my Hunters and then pull the Hunters back. This list can do very little damage to the Stormwall, and that could have left all my Hunters alive for a ball busting feat on the next turn.

So, I got totally tabled, but a valuable lesson learned. I think Sloan looks pretty good now, I have ordered 3 Hunters and Sloan from Outland! Maybe she will replace Nemo3 in my pairing.
