This Sunday I managed to get out of the house at a decent hour to attend the Essex Legion.
The original intention was to get a game of Inquisimunda in, but 2Key is like me and hates fielding unpainted miniatures, especially with how excited we are about our Warbands.
This resulted in us pulling out the dreaded Warmachine!
First up here is 2Keys 25 points of flamey Goodness. He was good enough to hide his unpainted figures behind the trees.
I reach for Magnus as I figure Ashlynn will struggle against the Menoth with all its' flame attack and Knockdown ability. I am good enough to hide my unpainted cavalry out of shot.
first turn and the shernanigans begin. I run forward to get my guns into range next turn. 2Key starts droneing on with his choir and suddenly the Jacks can not be shot at!
I have a go at his mental, killy solo but she is sitting on silly defence and easily evades my average MAT attacks.
and then 2Key counter attacks and most of my Steelhead mercenaries disappear!
2Key also brings his Zealots out of hiding but then actives some sort of mini feat and suddenly they are impervious to damage! Yep it's going to be one of those games!
I make the genius decision of a tactical withdraw i.e. I run away!
The Zealots being impervious to pain decide to follow.
On my decimated left flank I charge the last of my Steelheads to tie up Kreoss. . . .at least the picture is of painted miniatures.
On the right my Long gunners and Kell go nuts and riddle the Zealots with bullets!
and then I go and throw the game! In the excitment I had activated Magnus and then activated Kell BEFORE I had used Magnus' spells on the enemy Jacks OR popped my feat!
This means . . . . . . .
2Keys lovely painted Jack is in and my Renegade is wrecked!
then his light jack strolls up and lets loose with it's flamer!
On fire, on minimal health boxes and with nowhere to go, Magnus pitches in and goes nuts before he succumbed to the flames.
A well deserved victory for 2Key!
