Incursion 2014

Over a week ago I played three warmachine games, and this is one of those.

This one was Cryx, and I took Deneghra with me.

We had actually created two lists to practice for "tournament style" playing, and my other list had Wraith Witch Deneghra as the warcaster.

Game was 35 points, and here was my chosen list:

Warwitch Deneghra
- Malice
- Nightwretch
- Defiler
- Helldiver

Maximum unit of Mechanithralls + 2x Brute Thrall
Necrosurgeon & Stitch Thralls
Cephalyx Overlords
Warwitch Siren

And opponent had:

Prime Caine
- Defender

Arcane Tempest Gun Mages + Officer
- Hunter
Minimum unit of Greygore Boomhowlers + Jonas Murdoch
Junior Warcaster
Arlan Strangewayes
... and perhaps something I forgot?

This write-up is quite brief. First picture is also taken after Caine had used his feat... so there is pretty much nothing left on the table. Scenario was Incursion, and Cryx got to start the game.

Deneghra ran forward on first turn, so she gained a pretty damn convincing board control position for upcoming turns. Cygnar also had was taking a risk that didn't pay off - it was the left flag that disappeared. So opponent had to start rushing things to right side of the board, but Deneghra in the middle made that quite difficult.

In short - Cygnar wasn't able to bring anything to contest rightmost flag, when Cryx started scoring points from it starting Cygnar's second turn. Last picture shows Deneghra's position when she got to use her feat.

I'm not entirely sure what would have happened if we'd have had to play attrition game instead. Caine's feat took away pretty much all of my infantry, and a couple of lucky strikes against Malice had almost brought the helljack down. Defender had not yet taken any damage at all.
