I win the die roll and go for a balanced setup.

Round 1

I run up outside his run to engage ranges.

Rask move up, walls and feats. I think feating this early might be a mistake. Possible skewing the setup a bit so that Lances on one side cannot get vision and doubling up gators on the other side might allow him to feat in round 2 instead.

Round 2

I respond by pulling back. Going first gave me so much space!

Gators are now forced to run up towards me, or just allow me to shoot turn after turn.

Round 4

Storm Lances charge in and start killing Gators.

Gators make a fort in the center, kill a few models, but I am clearly up on attrition.

Fort Rask!

Round 5

A Wrastler admonitions and I fail to kill it. I block as many lanes to Maddox as I can, just in case.

I lose a few Lances.

I run out on the clock, but in friendly games we just keep playing! The Ironclad moves in, knocks Rask down, and kills him.

Post Mortem

This hard for Rask, especially where the scenario is so dead! I think it is vital that Rask does not feat bottom of 1.
