Ah well, so much to do, so little time. Into St. John's for some pre-GenCon gaming with my list of many things, and I discovered I'll need medication (or perhaps electroshock) to play it in 7 minute turns. So it's back to the drawing board.
This is my initial deployment in my first game against an eDeneghra list played by Mark.
Things heated up on my right flank:
Then, things heated up on my left flank:
Then I lost. Mark is an excellent player, so losing to him is no great shock. But it has to be said that I was stupid and then I died.
Next game was against Mark again, this time (at my request) playing nSkarre. I decided to change my deployment strategy.
Mark changed his strategy as well...here are his full Satyxis Raiders with Witch attachment charging my jacks...oh, what fun. Is there a caster with overwatch neutron bomb strike available?
After the game I told Mark that playing his Skarre list felt like reading a Russian novel...I knew something bad was going to happen, especially if I got off the couch to do anything. Unfortunately, I got up off the couch. His first charge attack from a Satyxis Raider did 12 points of damage on my Spriggan! 12 points! + feedback. He hit both my jacks with another 5 charge attacks. And let me say that free strikes from Satyxis Raiders are not gentle taps either.
Initial conclusion - I must find my brain. Final conclusion - I need less models.
Here are Ken's heavy warbeasts...he is taking them to GenCon:

And here is Jason's gun line, ready to receive the attentions of their woodland foe.
