Week 12 Match – 05.04.15 Team Fantastic (1740) 2 - 0 Battle Hammer BBC (Voltron, Dwarfs, 1960) Team Management Another MVP for Piledriver meant he learned how to pile awn and I had 2 Cpomb to beat up Dorfs with! 220k of inducements was pretty easy – Merc Hobgob + Wizard. Voltron had a nice AG5 Runner (Unk Thunderfoot) and quite a brutal team (8 Guard and 6 MB!) with a smattering of SF and Dauntless but strangely no PO at all. Game Another lost coin toss heh. I went with the standard ‘boat’ defence with 3 CDBs on the line hoping that their AV9 and Block would hold up rather than sacrificing the loner Hobgobs. A riot advanced the turn by one, and Unk Thunderfoot caught the kickoff. The AV9 plan fell through somewhat as Trevor Death was badly hurt from the LOS blocks We had a scrap in the centre for a few turns, a foul on Piledriver got a Blocker sent off as his Thick Skull saved him and the St4 Trollslayer survived a Frenzy trap but was then blitzed to death by Kaigan – Apo worked to knock it down to a mng. I had to open up the whole right side of the pitch to protect Kaigan from getting 2db’d back so Voltron screened off Thunderfoot and made a bit of a push forward. He couldn’t get into scoring range though so all I had to do was move a few guys round for the Wiz threat on turn 5. Voltron made some good moves to put me into not a great position but the Wizard’s lighting bolt on turn 5 badly hurt Unk Thunderfoot, Kaigan caused another cas and Warpatch recovered the ball – absolutely brutal turn. With only 6 mens left on the pitch there was no way Voltron could stop the td barring GFI fails or crazy dice, however with all the Guard he was still able to get 2db MB blocks in and on turn 7 he killed The Royal Male. Our Apo was on point thankfully and saved the day, turning it into a badly hurt. Warpatch did not fail his GFI and scored on turn 8. 2nd half started with a nice man advantage – 11 vs. 8 before LOS blocks and then we got a kill and a KO to basically kill the game. By turn 12 there were only 4 Dwarfs left on the pitch but Dauntless and Guard meant they could still get 2 dice MB hits in. I was really playing badly by this point – the ball was hardly protected and I wasn’t fouling every turn. Eventually Voltron had the chance to put a TZ on Jimmy Fantastic who had the ball but a misclick cost him that chance, and then I finally realised I should have been fouling every single turn and killed his best blocker on turn 15 with a Journeyman Hobgob foul – oof. Jimmy scored on turn 16. Summary Thought it was going to be a nightmare after the first turn removal of Trevor Death and some early double skulls and Apo usage but it was all one way traffic after the lightning bolt got rid of Unk Thunderfoot. Now we are ninth in the GS and finally have a positive cas difference! Cpomb gonna Cpomb!
