35pt Theme Army: Zerkova vs Kaya the Wildborne

Second game of the year - Zerkovas 35pt Themed list vs Kaya (Emmas army) with a slight change from last time.

Emmas Kaya Army:

>Feral Warpwolf
>Feral Warpwolf
Tharn Wolfriders (min unit)


Emma deploys first, Wolfriders on the flank and a swarm of Beasties in the middle.

I have a line of Advanced Deployment troops, with the rest in a block, and the Great Bears charging up the middle.

Turn 1:

Emma advances her forces forward, using the Wolfriders to fire some Javelins which all missed. On my turn, the Widowmakers deploy behind cover, and the rest of the army advances under cover of Greylord clouds.

Turn 2:

The Wolfriders are able to take out 2 Widowmakers, and then retreat. The rest of the Beasts move forward slightly. Combined attacks from a Manhunter, Widowmakers and the Destroyer kill two of the three Wolfriders.

Turn 3:

Emmas lone Wolfrider kills a Manhunter, and the Gorax charges, kills the other Manhunter, and then is Spirit-Doored back to safety. The rest of the Beasts advance. The Greylords spray and pray, killing the last Wolfrider on the last hit. The Woldwyrd had moved into range of the Great Bears, and they (foolishly, as it turns out) charge and destroy it. The Juggernaut runs, hoping to tie up the other Warpwolf.

Turn 4:

Bad turn for me - Emma successfully kills the Great Bears and the Juggernaut - leaving me with almost no offensive models left. I flub some serious rolls, and miss with the Destroyers Bombard (roll trip ones). The Koldun Lord sprays the Beasts, causing minor damage. Zerkova casts some spells, causing minor damage again. Everything else kinda meanders around, aimlessly.

Turn 5:

Game set and match - Emma opens up a charge lane, and Kaya Spirit Doors in finishing Zerkova with a feat and a few choice swings. The Crit KD realllly didnt help Zerkova. Well executed Assassination run.


Beaten again!! By pretty much the exact same thing! I admit I made a couple of mistakes though, I should have popped Zerkova's feat on Turn 4, which may have stopped the Argus getting close enough for Kaya to Spirit Door. Also, I wasted my Watcher move, which in the end probably wouldnt have been enough to save Zerkova anyway. Also, after losing Juggy and the Great Bears I should have retreated Zerkova to a safe position, instead of leaving her vulnerable.

Army List wise, the Mortar did absolutely nothing. I think my new rule for these is take 2 or take none at all. Im going to swap the Mortar out for Yuri the Axe in future.

Koldun Kommander Aleksandra Zerkova
>War dog
Battle Mechaniks (Leader and 3 Grunts)
Great Bears of Gallowswood
Greylord Ternion (Leader and 2 Grunts)
Widowmakers (Leader and 3 Grunts)
Yuri The Axe
