Podcast 042 – eVayl Vs. pButcher – Hit and Run

This week I was matched up against Aaron and his Khador.  I was bringing out my freshly painted Legion which I have basically never played before.  Warning: Expect some Gong-Showiness ahead.

We had just completed a Journeyman game and it was getting a bit late to do a 50 pt game so we opted to do a 25 pointer.

I really wanted to give eVayl a try so I made this list on the spot as a bit of a Legion Smorgasbord.


Aaron was going to take the Jorneyman battlebox plus some Winterguard but I convinced him he should drop the Decimator for a Max unit of IFPs instead.

His final list was:

*War Dog
Max Winter Guard Infantry + UA + 2 Rockets
Kovnik Joe
Max IFPs + UA

I was a bit daunted seeing so many infantry models across from me. I’m used to playing Ret or Mercs and they are both rarely out numbered.

We rolled for a new scenario and got Two Fronts (Two 12 x 6 Vertically aligned rectangular zone – 1 Friendly and 1 Enemy. With 2 Objective on the Centerline of the table, 1 friendly and 1 enemy, that give free charges when uncontested.)

I won the starting roll and chose to go first because it seemed like a good idea.  (I’m still mostly guessing with Legion because I’m super new to them.

Legion Turn 2

-I aim with the Ravagore at 1 of the Pikemen that I think might get me 2 kils but I end up Derping my distance estimate and he is about 1/2 inch short it scatters onto 1 IFP and killing him.

-Angelius walked forward and killed another IFP then Refuged back (a bit too far) even out of run to engage range.

-Vayl put Occultation on the Scythean and Tenacity on the Ravagore.

-Shredder put Tenacity on Vayl.

-Scythean stayed where he was in the back of the zone forcing the Winterguard to come to him.

-IFP shifted position in the zone not really coming forward at all and went into shieldwall

-Winterguar Bob and Weaved forward up their 5 inches.

-Joe gave Tough and Fearless

-Kodiak came forward in front of the house.

Legion Turn 3

-Scythean shifted over a bit so I could judge my channeling range for later.

-Angel moved forward and killed a Pikeman and Refuged back.

-Ravagore moved up a bit ans hot at another Pikeman. He animused and hit and killed the main target but failed to kill both IFPs hit by the blast but they were on fire which is probably good enough.

-Shredder put Tenacity on the Scythean.

-Vayl moved over to get the Scythean within 5 inches and shot him for no damage with the Oraculus, then channeled an Obliteration onto a winterguard.  She hit and autokilled him and nothing else was in the AoE. Vayl shed down to 1 fury to make sure there was 8 on the table.

-Butcher walked towards the middle and the dog followed him.

Legion Turn 5

-I derp my fury and have to do a frenzy check on the Scythean which he passes.

-I drop my upkeeps and Vayl goes first and Feats. She spends 2 fury to heal the body of the Scythean and Ravagore. First she purifies off Iron flesh. The shoots the Ravagore in the butt and arcs Refuge onto the Angel, Admonition on the Scythean and Icy Grip onto the Winterguard. She fires an Obliteration through the Ravagore onto a Winterguard and misses needing a 4. it scatter and still hits 2 and doesn’t kill either of them. She then spends to do it again and hits and kills all 3 but 1 of them is tough.

-Angel moved up and killed an IFP and refuged to the back corner.

-Ravagore moved over and boosted a shot at the last IFP in teh zone and rolls 1,1,1.  Hilarious.

-The Shepard runs over to support the beasts in the right zone.

-The Scythean moves up into melee with 5 Winterguard. 1st inital kills a Rocketeer, 2nd attack misses.Bought an misses, bought an misses bought and killed 1 WG.
