25ss Lady Justice vs. Viktorias

As promised earlier in the week, here is the short report of my wife and my game of Malifaux from last Friday.

She was playing her Viktorias, with two Ronin, Taelor and 7 soulstones.  I have Lady Justice, the Judge, a Death Marshal, two Guild Guard, an Austringer and 5 stones.  Since we were a bit rusty on the rules, we just played with a single shared goal of Plant Evidence.

First turn, shortly after deployment.

The first turn wasn’t too exciting, with everyone just moving up to get into position.

Start of Turn 2

I won the initiative on the second turn and rushed Lady J up to plant evidence on the center bush.  She then felt the full force of the Viktorias and was taken down to 1 wound by them and Taelor.

On turn 3, I won the initiative again, and Lady J went on a spree, taking out the Sword Viktoria.  The Judge came in to help, but nothing could save Lady J.

I was able to get a Guild Guard over onto her half of the board to start planting more evidence, while my Death Marshal took out one of the Ronin on my side of the board.  The other Ronin, and the gun Viktoria were able to plant two pieces on my half, but in the end I was able to get one more with my Guard to seal the victory 3-2 in favor of the Guild.

Overall it was a fun game, though we were both a bit rusty.  The additional terrain helped both sides get into combat a bit more easily though I did forget that the Austringer ignores terrain with his Raptor.  I’m still trying to wrap my head around the interactions and combos of Malifaux, so there is a lot of the game that I haven’t taken advantage of yet.

    Man, you guys don’t use much terrain. That board is really wide open.

    Really?

    It’s a 3’x3′ area, so those terrain pieces are 6″ apart at most. Now, I am used to playing Warhammer 40k, which tends to use a lot less than Malifaux, so getting used to putting down a ton of terrain has taken a while.
