My brief report: I deployed mostly on the west flank, with my smaller Scorpion Squad hanging out near the Scoprion Shrine near Corey's parking lot of warwalkers. Storm Guardians and one Defender squad deployed in the middle with Keith, but everyone else was on the west side of the Fire Dragon shrine. Facing me was a number of wave serpents filled with aspect warriors and Falcons. Those Black and Purple-flamed grav tanks of Nick's terrified me.

With a bit of luck and a whole lot of shooting, we managed to stall the enemy advance long enough for the Avatar and Keith's Seer Council to punch through to the Dire Avenger Shrine and split the enemy line. With his Aspect Warriors facing a couldron of shooting, I whittled Nick's Banshees and Scoprions a bit and charged the Scoprions with my Seer Council. Although I broke Nick's western advance by defeating the Scoprions soundly, I lost my main Farseer in the exchange giving hope to the enemy for a draw.

Fortunately, their turn 6 efforts fizzled and we scored a narrow 2-1 victory. Credit goes to Keith for his awesome Disruption rolls that screwed over multiple Dark Reaper units, and to Corey for taking one on the chin for the team and scaring Benoit out of his Rune Armour Underwear. And killing this guy.
