Battle 004 – Retribution Vs. Cygnar, Rahn vs Siege

In addition to the game that Nick and I reported on for the Podcast this week, we also got in a 2nd game… basically, we finished so quickly that we had the time to set up and try again!

Nick was eager to see if he could iron out the kinks in his Rahn list, and I really wanted to get Siege on the table at least once… so the list selection was very easy.

We rolled for initiative, which Nick won, and I picked the same side of the table as last time for the same reasons (concealment in the zone).

Nick’s list was as follows:

Adeptis Rahn
– Phoenix
Sentinels (max)

Fane Knight
Stormfall Archers
Mage Hunter Assassin
Eiryss, Angel of Retribution (eEiryss, Eiryss2)
Magister x2
Arcanist

Major Markus “Siege” Brisbane
– Stormwall
Reinholdt
Storm Lances (min)
Katherine Laddermore (dragoon)
Rangers
Journeywoman Warcaster
