Last game of infinity night — full 300 points, so Razorsedge can bring Sun-Tze and friends to the table.
thepoorman set up this table, and the river was “open sea” rules, which didn’t come up once, because multi-terrian just makes things like that go away for the right models.
We went with highly classified, because we both had specialist heavy lists.
This game, was a bit of a nail biter at times. the Yu-jing forces brought in some hefty Ad combat drops, one of which managed to drop in out of line of fire, secure the HVT, and then gleefully accept a regular order to flamethrower my left flanking triad. I broke it, had the makaul engage, and the Kosuil, and Sakiel dodge. The Kosuil would turn into a roasted artichoke, and the sakiel managed to dodge his way out of the fire. The Makaul successfully engaged, leaving him free of the fire.
Some yu-jing camouflaged troops came out of hidden deployment, and tried to shoot my sniper.
Now, let’s talk about my sniper. This Gao-Rael has been a mainstay in my army since I bought him. He’s done 2 things in his pewter life — murder half the board with crits and failed armour saves, or be removed from the table in the first round. This game.. he was the former. Most of the time, he needed a 12, so he’d roll an 11.
anyway, this camo troop tried a surprise shot, forward observation roll, and was hit, failed his ARM roll, and went home.
Next, Sun-Tze would try to flashpulse him a few times, and would ultimately be successful, but would take a wound from his efforts.
Some crazy multi-terrain yu-jing ninja troop crossed the river and managed to get shot by him too.
my active was mostly moving up the board trying to capture objectives. Early in the round my Makaul tried to have a knife fight with the AD drop (tiger warrior?) and would watch his damage 14 attacks bounce off his pair of 19’s for armour saves. The Sakeil would later join the melee, and the yu-jing went down after that.
My clipsos revealed from hidden deployment, and made surprise forward observation rolls against some nearby Yu-jing. It would take her two orders, but she did manage to do it. She shot down shortly thereafter.
Sun-tze would keep trying to flash pulse the sniper, (this time in ARO) and would take another wound for his efforts.
I made a bit of a mistake on the right Triad and a Makaul, trying to bait him out and throw down some smoke, so I could accomplish another objective with Keesan, but this totally backfired, as I failed my smoke rolls, and was hit with a shotgun blast that dropped the whole triad.
During turn two, didn’t have a lot of orders to work with, but managed to blind my sniper.
my active was very lucky for me. I ran my chaksa servant up to the right flanking triad, dodged a bunch of ARO’s and managed to heal the paramedic and Keesan! First time I’ve ever used a servant successfully. The sniper fired a few more shots at Sun-Tze, which finally downed him.
I achieved my hidden objective and data scan, since Keesan was back up.
yu-jing’s final turn was a few hail mary shots, but not much more. He just didn’t have the orders to play with. We basically called the game as this point, and yu-jing and Tohaa will meet again on the battlefield of another tuesday!
