League Games, 1st of March - Circle vs Retribution

Emma's Baldur list fought against Rowan's Retribution army, and while I didnt see much of the battle (I was too busy concentrating on how to outmaneuver George) I have some pics, and anecdotes, so can piece together how it went.

Rowans list, (which I will be facing Round 9 I think) is as follows:

Kaelyssa, Nights Whisper
Dawnguard Sentinels + UA
>Soulless Escort
Lady Aiyana and Master Holt
Mage Hunter Strikeforce + UA
Mage Hunter Assassin
Narn, Mage Hunter of Ios

Basically what happened was Rowan rushed forwards with his 20+ infantry models, gumming up his objective with an insurmountable number of guys. (This is going to be a major issue for when I play him) His Phoenix plus some solos ran to Emma's objective, already threatening to win on CP's. Emma advanced forwards, enough to contest her objective.

She lost the Blackclad Wayfarer early, to Mage Hunter Strikeforces (MHS), who proceeded to, throughout the game, shoot her models to bits. A Woldwarden went down early to a Sentinel charge (those guys can really hit hard), and the second Woldwarden soon followed. Im not sure how many Retribution models died, but as you can see from the pics that will follow, there are a LOT left at the end of the game, so my assumption is: Not many.

Rowan wanted to win on Scenario to get maximum league points, so he took out her army and left Baldur alone, knowing he couldnt stop the Scenario win.

Early days

Rowan has a LOT of troops. He really needs to paint them though. :P

A nice close up of Emma's army.

The Retribution approaches.

Situation is not looking great for Circle here.

Poor Baldur. :(

So as you can see, Circle was outnumbered and outgunned in this battle, facing off against a swarm of bright white elves and coming off second best. She said she really enjoyed the game though, but at a certain point knew she wasnt going to win. I was hoping she would be able to pull off a Forest-Walk assassination, but Rowan was too wily and didnt let that happen.
