Journeyman no more

Last two games of my Journeyman League participation. League ended quite a while ago, and first game dates almost a whole month back.

Since both games were with and against the same list, I'll slap both games here though there was at least a week between the two.

My list had evolved into:

Morvahna the Dawnshadow
- Wold Guardian
- Gnarlhorn Satyr
- Winter Argus
- Gorax Rager

Shifting Stones
Maximum unit of Tharn Ravagers + Chieftain
Druids of Orboros + Overseer
Tharn Ravager Shaman
Druid Wilder
Gallows Grove

Objective: Bunker

Both games were Recon scenarios.

Both games were against Convergence of Cyriss:

Forge Master Syntherion
- Prime Axiom
- Cipher
- Monitor
- Galvanizer
- Diffuser
- Corollary

Optifex Directive
Attunement Servitors
Elimination Servitors
2x Algorithmic Dispersion Optifex

Both games had some similarities in how they played out.

First game I rushed to the flag on right, trying to drown opponent in meat, trusting that opponent wouldn't have enough attacks to get rid of everything.

Ravagers were pretty much struggling to destroy even one light vector, but at least they were passing their Tough rolls well enough.

Morvahna had relatively easy time to score points, when opponent got only servitors from Axiom to contest the flag. At one critical point opponent forgot about it, though, and that probably was what tipped tough game in my favor.

In the end where was Cipher contesting the flag when Circle had four control points. Wold Guardian had only Body branch still functional. Most Ravagers were facing completely wrong way. Looked like Morvahna would have to wreck the heavy vector and get back to flag with Reposition. Morvahna was quite injured, so she didn't have that much life left for various boosts and/or re-rolls. But she succeeded.

Game 2:

Second game I took a huge risk by running Morvahna to flag on the right on turn two or something. She did have seven transfers, though.

I wonder how different the game would have played if I had not charged Syntherion with Morvahna when he came a little too close.

And heck, Syntherion is a tough one to assassinate. Morvahna was uninjured and had seven fury points. And last possible attack with only one hit box remaining on Morvahna finally killed the clockwork warcaster.
