Legion Turn 2

-Vayl pulls in her fury and upkeeps both Chiller and Leash.

-Seraph slipstreams the left Scythean forward and is out of range to shoot anything.

-Vayl cast slipstream and walks forward. Typhon moves about an inch sideways towards Vayl from Leash then is placed 2″ forward from Slipstream. Vayl shoots him in the butt then arcs Hoarfrost through him onto the frontmost Reckoner.  She boosts to hit and scores the crit making him the Repenter and the Knight nearby Stationary. She also pops her feat.

-The left Scythean charged the left Reckoner and was about 1/4″ short.

-Typhon charges the frontmost Reckoner. It takes all his initials and 3 bought attacks but he takes it out.

-Right Scythean walks up.

-Gobbers walk up and make a cloud.

-Angelius walks up and pops a Knight.

-Deathstalker walks to other side of the Ruin and pops 2 more Knights.

-Forsaken pulls fury off the Shredder.

Menoth Turn 2

-Durst gives 3 to the remaining Reckoner and upkeeps Wall of Steel.

-Reckoner get enlivened.

-Choir gives all the warjacks Battle.

-Reckoner charges Typhon and takes him out.

-Repenters walk forward and spray the objective. They go base to base to benefit from Wall of Steel. 2 sprays plus 1 ancillary leave it on 6 boxes.

-TFG shield wall forward and use Iron Zeal. 2 get within melee range of the Scythean and attack him for minimal damage but light him on fire.

-Vanquisher walks up and shoots at Angelius and misses.  Blast still catches it and does light damage and lights her on fire.

Legion Turn 3

-Vayl takes in her fury and upkeeps Chiller.

-Shredder rabids and walks up to my friendly objective and kills it exactly to the box on his second attack.

-Vayl walks up to get the Reckoner and 1 of the TFG engaging the Scythean in her CMD range and cast Incite. She throws her Oraculus at the TFG and boost damage needing a 12 to kill and gets 11. She throws out some Tenacities somewhere.

-Gobbers run and tuck into the Reckoner, base to base, to prevent him from moving away.

-Left Scythean charges the Reckoner ending base to base with it in the front. He took 2 free strikes from TFG on the way in though and Darrell spike the damage like a mother fucker and cripples the Scythean’s mind. He is still effective MAT10 from Incite and Chiller so I’m not overly concerned. Despite that the charge attack misses and the Scythean ends up doing light damage to the Reckoner after using all his fury.

-Seraph casts slipstream and flies to within 2″ of the other Scythean then flies back toward the left zone and takes 2 shots at some TFG. Killing 1 of them.

-Right Scythean walks up to the Reckoner and burns through his fury and only cripples the Reckoner’s gun. It was a bad day for dice.

-Angelius walks up to max melee on the right Objective and kills it with 1 armour piercing attack.

-Deathstalker runs to jam Durst in the most annoying position I could think of.

-Left Forsaken runs to jam TFG and force an A-bomb check which they pass.

-Other Forsaken cleans off the right Scythean.

-The vanquisher walks around Durst and smacks the Deathstalker, killing her.

-Durst charges the Angelius and she erupts in to ass.

Legion Turn 4

-Shredder and Forsaken both die to fire.

-Vayl casts Slipsteam and Incite and walks towards Durst. The Seraph get placed out of melee. She fires a Hoarfrost at him* and boosts the damage doing 5. No crit for stationary though.

-Seraph walks towards Durst and rolls 4 strafe shots. 3 shots hit* doing enough boosted damage to put Durst down.

Victory to Legion
