Malifaux: Nicodem vs. Lilith

Ryan and I played a 25 point game of Malifaux last night.  I was playing Nicodem, Mortimer, a Vulture, Bette Noir, and a Punk Zombie.  Ryan’s crew had Lilith, a Large Nephilim, the Cherub and Hans.

We rolled for strategies, and I ended up with Reconnoiter (secure table quarters) and Ryan got Assassinate.  We then deployed in opposing corners of the table.

We were pretty evenly matched for most of the game.  Hans was causing problems and shooting zombies, but Nico always had a group of zombies around himself as a shield.  I was able to get the Nephilim and Lilith down to one wound, but then Bette spent two activations completely whiffing at here and ended up dying after doing a lot of nothing.  On turn 5, the Nephilim was able to kill Mortimer, but couldn’t get to Nico.  Nico then proceeded to kill the Nephilim with a well executed Decay.  On the final turn, Lilith got into combat with Nico, but was unsuccessful.  Nico proceeded to finish off Lilith with a well placed Cane Strike and then managed a very luck draw to resurrect a second Punk Zombie, allowing me to claim three table quarters at the end of the game.

It was a very fun game, and we are starting to really get the hang of our crews and the game in general.  It was a very close game, but Nico just proved too resilient.  And I was able to get luck to turn my way at the end of the game, snatching the win.
