Battle Report #329: Haley3 vs Naaresh

:: Prologue ::

Following Makeda's defeat my opponent wanted to try Naaresh out against Haley3. I was eager to get more Skorne practice!

:: Pre-Battle Thoughts & Deployment ::

This time I went second. I figure it doesn't make that much of a difference here either so when I won the roll-off I might as well try.

:: Game ::

Skorne moves up, Lamentation is cast.

I don't bother with clouds bot of 1 but put up Supremacy etc. Lances keep a wide threat arc.

Naaresh has a choice to make and a problem to solve. Choice: Does he feat? If yes, does he move within "serious melee threat range?". Also, how does he keep me from getting massively ahead on scenario? He ends up feating and placing himself outside of melee range while putting Snapjaw with Submerge, backed by star crossed to contest scenario.

I see no reason to engage so I just shoot the objective and cloud up.

Tiberion goes in to kill a few Trenchers. Snapjaw runs and is covered with Star Crossed again.

The counter-punch dismantles Tiberion, Snapjaw and some collateral. Feat is spent but that was easily worth it.

My opponent plays his turn but forfeits the game half-way through as he hasn't done anything noteworthy.

Victory to the Swans!

:: Evaluation ::

Skorne is sad and Haley3 is a solid caster here. Not sure how they can build against her to be honest. That being said, I feel as though Naaresh needs to do one of two things: Tank a turn of shooting without feat or move up -way- harder on feat turn. The solution he ended up taking here was neither of these and the feat was highly ineffective. Apart from that, I don't think there's a lot to say about this game.
