View Full Version : Sound Strategy or Just Plain Lucky?

So I played a 30pt game the other day against a fairly standard Lilith list (3 tots, 1 mature, 1 teddy). The stratagy was shared escape and survive. I announced Bodyguard Zorida (we only used one scheme each)
I wiped to floor, took out his whole crew (well his mature neph helped a lot...)
So was this the best list ever or was I just lucky?? (I really just wanted to run the most big bases I could...) (I know if I had the dreamer, but I don't)

What was his list? What were you doing? I am going to assume you use the Doll and Zorida to obey his Neph into smashing his guys but what did he do back? with Lilith there was no teleport shinanigens going on?

How is a teddy part of a "a fairly standard Lilith list"? I like to stick with things that grow or help grow in my Lil lists. Honestly I'd say he had a lousy list.

I assume he took the Teddy to avoid Z's obey but had his Mature bite him hard.
Neither list looks OP to me and it probably came down to terrain and model placement. Both lists look very mobile and leaning on the high value low count list.
Try it again and see if the outcome is the same or if it is different. He should also have kept his Mature way out on the flank to make your use of Obey harder. 10" charge is nasty, but can be mitigated.

Shared escape and survive basically comes down to a firefight. That said, you brought more raw killing power right off the bat. If you're opponent wasn't transposing their units, they will have been in trouble right off the bat. Especially since they can't target either your teddy or juju with transposition. I honestly think that you're opponent didn't list stack well enough. They might have been able to take it with some schemes like Reclaim Malifaux, and things that didn't involve trying to overpower you. That said, it sounds like you fared pretty well. Congratulations.

I hung back and let him come to me. He did try and get the mature out of the way but then it couldn't hurt me any since I just stayed bunched up near some good terrain where he didn't have many avenues of attack. Perhaps he shouldn't have gone for JuJu first since he just came back!

My vote is on your opponent's crew list being the beginning of his downfall... the rest can probably be attributed to your game being bette than his also.
