I played the following list for the event:
- Skarre, Queen of the Broken Coast
- Satyxis Raiders (10)
- Satyxis Raider Sea Witch
- Satyxis Raider Captain
Game 1 of the tournament was against Patrick, whom I often face at tournaments. I really enjoy playing against him as we have very decent and fun games.
- Master Tormentor Morghoul
- Titan Gladiator
- Titan Sentry
- Bronzeback Titan
- Cyclops Shaman
- Cyclops Brute
- Paingiver Beast Handlers (6)
|Patrick's List and Deployment|
Round 1 Turn 1
I give a focus to each warjacks (the Deathjack gets 1 putting him to 3). The Satyxis run to the center line of the board. All the warjacks run except the Deathjack which charges a model after casting Admonition on himself. Skarre casts Death Ward on herself and charges the Bronzeback.
Round 1 Turn 2
Patrick tries to advance as far forward as he can, but he ends up screwing up his deployment a bit by having issues getting Locker, Rush, and a charge on a model (the two animi with the charge don't work well). He just depends on Locker and Rush and doesn't end up as far forward as he wanted. Everything else either runs or charges forward to the line he's made. Morghoul dumps all the fury into the Agonizer.
Round 2 Turn 1
I allocate 3 focus to the Deathjack, Skarre keeps the rest. She pays two life to upkeep both spells. Satyxis charge the line, utilizing Power Swell. They put a lot of hurt on the Sentry, Shaman, and kill the Bronzeback. Skarre advances, uses Fate Weaver to protect herself and the Deathjack while preventing Morghoul, the Sentry, and the Gladiator from doing much next turn. She also uses Perdition to get the Deathjack to the Gladiator without being affected by Locker and he destroys the Gladiator and a Paingiver.
Round 2 Turn 2
Patrick doesn't have many options this round. All of his heavy hitters can't do anything. His turn boils down to Morghoul casting Admonition on himself and moving over past the Deathjack with Safeguard up. Morghoul also feats this turn. The Agonizer dies to a freestrike trying to prevent the Deathjack from getting any focus. He kills two Satyxis with the Cyclops or Paingivers.
Round 3 Turn 1
Under Morghoul's Feat, I can't allocate focus, so I just left the Deathjack eat the Sentry that's been softened up. The Satyxis keep beating on the other warbeasts.
Round 3 Turn 2
Patrick doesn't have much left at this point. He utilizes his Brute to kill two more Satyxis. Morghoul starts protecting his zone from me.
Round 4 Turn 1
I give more focus to the Deathjack and drop my upkeeps. The Satyxis begin wiping everything else out while the Deathjack kills the Cyclops Brute. At this point, Patrick only has Morghoul left, which I can't really kill due to Admonition. Skarre stays in her zone while Malice, the Nightwretch, and the Stalker block Morghoul from getting to her. I score 1 CP due to controlling a zone.
Round 4 Turn 2
Morghoul upkeeps Admonition and runs into my zone. We both get a CP for controlling each other's zone.
Round 5 Turn 1
I run Skarre into the zone I need to control. I then move Malice into Patrick's zone, denying him another CP. I end turn and win the game 3 CPs to 1 CP.
