The scenario was incursion. I deployed as forward as I could, and used the forest for LOS blocking, and dug in the trenchers. They advanced on the flags. Although he was spread out, it felt he didnt have much to contest with.

Skorne advanced quickly, cats taking a flag, Molik up the center, and a group of slow moving dides far right. The warlock went straight up the middle, out in the open.

So I couldn’t let the mistake go unpunished. Rangers moved up to scout for Caine’s army. Trenchers made some combined ranged attacks, keeping far enough from the Skorne beasts. A Hunter finished the job.

The game was over too quick for my liking. We talked strategy, made some changes to the list and deployment, then ran another battle.
