9th Age Summer-Fall 2017 League Reports

Post  Nathan.A. on Sat Jul 08, 2017 9:48 pm

So thought I would make a new reporting thread for the current league, the other one is just too big....

Anyways I played against Carson last night, my OG vs his VS, the scenario was counter-thrust with a breakthrough secondary.

The game was really back and forth, some notable happenings include:
- I annihilated a unit of rat ogres in one turn with a wyvern lord and a giant
- Carson annihilated a wyvern lord General in one round with an abomination, by rolling 16 attacks! Poor orc.
- My giants were awesome, one beat a bsb on giant rat and almost ran him down (scream and bawl er whatev, it's the best and funniest fasho)
- Carson made a HUGE 12 inch overrun to grab the flank of my huge 1350 point feral orc eadbashers with wizard unit. BUT it didn't matter, I passed the first break test with a roll of 3, then he failed to catch me when I broke the next turn. The pursuit ended up putting something like 2 wounds on his bell from dt's (hilarious) and my orcs managed a charge the turn after rallying to finish the unit, it ended the game fleeing with <25% remaining and the bell dead.

Game ended with neither getting the secondary, 12-8 for me, I was fully painted Carson was not.

Carson and i played encirce with breakthrough secndary. I chose to defend with my new dwarf list. My catapult and flame cannons ripped Carson apart while his warp cannon only got one shot off causing only one wound. We met in several combats with my deepwatch chasing away some rat ogres and overrunning into the bell.

My other flank had carsons general/ stormvermin and abomination chew through a unit of greybeards and deepwatch in a few combats with the generals unit ending up with a flank on the middle combat involving deepwatch/ bell.

Top of 4 i made a critical measuring error not allowing my flank unit enough distance to march into Carsons depoyment flank by 1/4 ". Also turn 5 i thought i could wreck his abomination with a flank charge to help out the center combat. He made a massive regen save and in 2 turns ate my general and bsb plus stoping me from helping out the center which allowed him to finish the unit but not quite kill the runesmith who managed to flee away.

Kudos abomination today was your day...responsible for close to 2 thousand points if dead dwarfage. RIP. Carson took secondary and neither were painted so 15 to 5 for Carson

I got a few games in this weekend. Carson came over to pit his rat army against my all goblin list.
Top of 2 i killed my caster by throwing too many dice 840pts...lesson learned. My gargantula saved me by holding the middle ground against Carsons general which allowed me to pick away at some of the other units. I opted to flee with wolf raiders from his rat ogres and made the rally to fight again.
My general got a practice round against the abomination but we realized the stumble forward shouldnt have been a charge and then when i did get the charge for real i couldnt kill it.
Carson held the center ground to get secondary for a 17 to 3 win. Neither were painted

Don and i played our playoff game in which he didnt feel the need to bring a daemon, shooting or magic. We were in combat turn 2 but the dwarfs proved to much. I won by 1563 pts so on to Nathan for the final. Non league game i was not painted Don? ( were your nurgle boogers painted?)

Last game was Dwayne against my dwarfs. Turn one he shot my catapult from outside 30" to kill it taking away my deep threat and remained out of flame cannon range for as long as he could. Magic was poor for both of us as we couldnt channel above 6 dice until turn 6.
Turn 6 saw his horde of greatswords evenly matched against my horde of kingsguard. 2 rounds and neither haf many models left. He did break and run down a unit of deepwatch and greybeards to secure the win but i managed to sneak the secondary on him.
Ended as an 11 to 9 for Dwayne. Neither side painted

Nope! Wasn't painted.

My dice were soft and the Dwarfs were hard. Should have brought a Greater Daemon, but I thought I'd try some new units and it didn't pan out. Congrats to Andre and good luck to Nathan vs. Andre for the final. (kill those Dwarfs) Smile

Andre and I played the league final and I managed to squeak out a win by secondary objective. I'm on my phone so I don't want to write out a big long report but it was a bloody back and forth affair with the elf magic being shut down and the dwarf guns being strangely inaccurate and unreliable. The game actually ended in a tie with Andre having the slight edge in victory points (less than 200 points difference) but I took the secondary and the belt.

It was a blood bath for bith sides. I needed 3 on a d6 for my catapult 1st 3 rounds...got a 2 and forgot to roll my partials. That unit of swordmasters never should have made it out alive and they were the 3rd scoring unit that cost me the game. I also misfired with both flame cannons at close range which allowed them to be charged but could otherwise have cleared a path for my kingsguard and deepwatch to charge Nathans bsb/spear block.
I did manage to hold a deepwatch unit against ancient dragon, knights of ryma and flank charge by highborn lancers to allow my kingsguard unit to flank dragon and kill it. So moral victory for me.
Great game though and there are pics posted on the smg facebook page

Nathan R. and myself squared off last night. Kingdom of Equitaine vs the Vermin Swarm. Back and forth game that ended in a 16-3 after secondary for Nathan. Knights really are my nemesis army from back when I first started in this hobby! Next time!

I think it would be 16-4 actually (13-7 before the secondary swing) plus whatever I get for being painted.

It was actually a very calculated game with both sides doing a lot of posturing for the advantage. I charged in at the start a little haphazardly but when I lost and broke I managed to escape to safety with decent numbers. My Pegasus knights did the heavy lifting. They took down some rat ogres and thunder hulks and then helped to pull down Carson's BSB. The grail knights and general took down Carson's bell and then started chewing through the clan rats but the game ended before they could finish them off.
