That was close: 3 player free for all
I had not planned to post a battle report about the game two days ago before it started, but am very happy I decided otherwise and took some pics. This was one of the best games I had in a long time.
We played a three player 35pts free for all at my place with some self designed scenario. That is two have at least one not fleeing nor wrecked, wild or inert model completely within a 16” diameter in the middle of the battlefield at the end of your own turn to not immediately lose the game. This condition starts with the 2nd round and the last player with a caster in play wins the game. This kind of scenario proved extremely helpful in free for all or team games to prevent the game scattering in separated 1 vs 1 games.
The lists were as following:
I got the first turn with Cryx next. Initially I took my Demos on the left and the Doomies on the right side, but after my Demo Corps getting under heavy fire by the Gunners and the Doom Reavers threatened by Scrap Thralls I Changed my strategy and let these units switch sides during the second round. Here is what it looked like at the end of my second turn:
At the end of the second round everyone had fulfilled the condition of the scenario and the game started to get really interesting 😉 :
I could see a chance to get Terminus with collecting a lot of Rage Token on my way. So it was time for Orsus to feat. This gave me 9 Rage Token and Orsus managed to shot one zombiepirate to give his ‘jacks +2” movement. With the charge lane cleared by the Devastator and the Demo Corps Beast 09 with 3 Focus could charge Terminus. Unfortunately After that charge Terminus had 6 wounds left but was stationary. I used 3 Rage Token on Beast, two on the Manhunter and two on two Demos. The outcome was that Terminus was still standing with 1 wound left! That was not my plan.
Now for the Cryxian revenge: The reaper could catch Orsus to drag him to a place were Terminus could land and finish him off with two strikes. So after that and some tactical movement Cryx stoud like that, with Terminus’ back to the Dwarves 😉 :
But with using his feat that round and an armor of 26 (I think) and a lot of models to transfer damage to there was only few chance for the Dwarves to win the game. So a combination of effective moves was needed.. and done. The bear charged Terminus, didn’t do any damage but made a throw with his chain attack to a spot with few of his folks to transfer. Then Gorten landslided him so far that there was no chance left to transfer and finished him off.
You see: what a great game! The short ones obviously won.
