My opponent played Convergence with Orion, 2x Prime Axiom, 1x TEP, Corollary and a few servitors/shield guard dudes. Lost the Roll, chose the tableside with more cover. He deployed his Battlegroup on my left side, with only the tep and some countercharging servitors on the right. I counterdeployed the CGI on my right to rile up the TEP, along with the Retaliator, Gorman and the Liberator. Left side my medium infantry cautiously tried to hold the side.
I won't write a full battle report, but here are the highlights:
- Top of Turn 2, TEP two-shot my Liberator, because I put it too far forward. - Bottom of Turn 2, Lukas is not in range to Desintegrate the TEP. CGI apparate forward, Alchemists kill one servitor. Retaliator oils the TEP and the CGI proceeds to brute force through 7 shield guards and leave the TEP on 3 boxes (no minifeat). Lukas finishies it off with a barely in range Hand Cannon shot.
- Bottom of Turn 3 Gorman manages to Rust both b2b Prime Axioms, Retaliator oils both, Lukas feats and Desintegrates around half the boxes of one PA before retreating into the right zone to control (out of threat). Held back Suppressor charges and finishes the job on first PA, dealing decent damage to the second.
- With no way of dealing with the retaliator AND a full unit CGI with minifeat still available and in range, my opponent goes for a very unlikely asassination attempt (lukas in a cloud with 2 Foc, 4 Health down). Only the remaining PA can hit him and misses all but one shot which gets absorbed. Victory for Luke!
CGI were on fire this game and Lukas stood his ground even without the Liberator. I'll definitely swap the Storm Troopers for the Railless, when I get my hands on it. Mirage is awesome on this thing, and I have yet to play a game, where I got my point investment in the Storm Troopers back.
