Battle Report #39: Caine2 vs Wurmwood (2D6 Tournament)

For my second game I am matched with Asbjørn, who is piloting Una2 and Wormwood. I am pretty sure he won't risk dropping Una2 into Caine2. I really want to try out my Caine2 list and see if it has game into Wurmwood at all. After all, my Haley2 / Stormwall list is very susceptible to Stranglehold.

Captain Allister Caine (75 points)

Captain Allister Caine
* Reinholdt
* Centurion
* Hunter
Journeyman Warcaster
* Firefly
Gun Mage Captain Adept
Rhupert Carvolo
6 Rangers
5 Storm Lances
10 Trencher Infantry

Wurmwood, Tree of Fate (75 points)

* Feral Warpwolf
* Megalith
* 2x Pureblood Warpwolf
Swamp Gobber Chef
3 Shifting Stones
2x4 Sentry Stone and Mannikins
10 Tharn Bloodtrackers


I win the dice roll and want to claim the board.

Turn 1

Everything runs up.

Wurmwood rolls only 1 fury for each Sentry Stone.He kills off 5 Trenchers and 3 Rangers. I probably should have placed things a bit further back. Wurmwood feats and boom where is everything? I can only see trees.

Turn 2

I use Trenchers and some leaps to clear off some Bloodtrackers, and back out. Hunter goes for extreme flanking maneuver. I contest, so he does not score.

Turn 3

The warpwolves clear away the Hunter with some good dice rolls. Wurmwood makes his fort.

There is an opening for Caine. I feat and charge a Bloodtracker, and then shoot away the Feral and all the Bloodtrackers as well as a Sentry Stone. The cavalry removes another Sentry stone.

It's maybe a risky, but I cannot see how he assassinates me, so I go for it. I still have the Bullet Dodger, after all.

Cassius runs around me and the Tree ports in. A Hellmouth pulls the Megalith within range of Caine. A Shifting Stone blocks my last exit. Then, Megalith punches me dead.

I think I could have made this all much harder by making a triangle of Lancers in front of Caine.

Circle wins by assassination!

I am not sure if this is Wurmwood or Cassius, but he sure seems satifisfied with the result. Damn that tree!

Post Mortem

This was a very interesting game! Wurmwood does not have very many pieces, and if I can remove some, I think I have game here. Wurmwood is probably up, but then he is up against a lot of things.
