JeffyBaby Posted June 29, 2013 Share Posted June 29, 2013 (edited) I got the chance to play some Warlord for the first time since ReaperCon a couple months back. I played a Change of Heart Mercs list while Jason took Darkreach. After seeing our model count discrepancy, Jason did not have high expectations, and I gladly worked to fulfill his early predictions. From what I can remember of Jason's army: Darkreach, 1000 pts. Troop 1SinisthreaxZalash, Assassin w/ Doomshade BootsLiela Mordollwen, SorceressShiver SpikeShadowstep Warrior x 3Shade Beast x 3Troop 2Mornenion, Drake CaptainShadow DemonShiver SpikeDarkrime Drake x 2Troop 3Phase CatTroop 4Phase Cat Luck Stone Mercenaries, 1000 pts. Troop 1Deckard Nightveil, Death PriestMinotaur x 3 Skeleton Swordsman x7Troop 2Deckard Nightveil, Death Priest w/ Armor of Courage Skeleton Swordsman x10 Troop 3Deckard Nightveil, Death PriestSkeleton Swordsman x10 Troop 4Deckard Nightveil, Death PriestSkeleton Swordsman x10 Troop 5Deckard Nightveil, Death Priest Skeleton Swordsman x10 Totem of Battle Luck Stone This game was definitely decided on initiative order. My bead came up first, and I moved up a block of Skeletons as bait in the dead center of the table. Next came all of Jason's beads. His Shiver Spikes took out a Skeleton, and Zalash took out another one. Due to those boots, I was only able to get 2 of my Minotaurs into combat with Zalash. They did some damage, but he survived. Killing Zalash early was my number one priority going into this game. He has killed me before in the end game when I didn't have anything left that could get past his parried up DV14. Jason advanced a little two far, and I was able to cast Incite on a couple troops of Skeletons and Rush Attack his front line. I killed off all the Shadowstep Warriors. Turn 2 saw 4 of my beads pulled in a row. More fighting with Zalash, and he finally fell after a couple rounds of fighting. Skeletons brought down the Drakes and a couple Shade beasts. Jason Ironskinned Sini and charged into a Minotaur. The Minotaur got off two cleaving hits in defense, so he made him pay for it. The Shadow Demon charged in against anoth Minotaur, and only got one hit (yeah for no Savage!). The Demon took three hits in return. A Phase Cat and the Drake captain made a break for the Totem to negate the bonus. Turn 3 saw 3 of my beads pulled to start. The Troop guarding the Totem swarmed the Cat and Captain and took them both down. The other Phase Cat fell to skeletons. By now, most of the Deckards had used up their SP, so began moving towards the center melee. On Turn 4, Leila was surrounded by skeletons. In a desperation move, she cast Wings on herself and flew across the table to try to negate my Totem. The Deckard on guard duty successfully Winglocked her, and she was immediately swarmed by skeletons. Now that Sini's Ironskin had warn off, he was mauled by a Deckard and a handful of skeletons. When we called it, Jason was left with a lone Shiver Spike in the corner while I had 2 Troops of Deckards with 4 Skeletons each, and a lone Deckard remaining.
