Battle Report 24: Cygnar versus Retribution of Scyrah

Greetings and salutations, soldiers of Caspia!

I finally got another game in. I wasn't sure what to play (if even Cygnar!) but in the end I decided to run the same list as I did last time I played and slammed down Stryker1 Storm Division. Now, I know the 'in' list is in Heavy Metal, but I don't own two Stormwalls so there's that. As usual I'm not great at taking pictures every turn...

- Stormwall
Max Storm Lances
Min Storm Lances
- UA (free)
- 2 Storm Gunners
Journeyman Warcaster (free)
- Firefly
Arlan Strangeways (free)
Kathrine Laddermore

I played vs Retribution of Scyrah, under Kaelyssa.

 - Manticore [14]

 - Griffon [8]

Mage Hunter Assassin [4]

House Vyre Electromancers [8]

Scenario was Outlast.

I go first and advance up like so. I don't go full tilt, because I want to spare my Storm Lances both MHA charges and Rifle Team shots (Dahlia and Skarath are proxies for another HRT). 
This is following my turn 2: Retribution has pushed up cautiously. I pushed up aggressively and feated. The Stormwall shot something I believe.
In response Kaelyssa gets nothing done really. He sends a griffon into my right hand zone, some electromancers into my left and a griffon into my Stormblades and killed two or something. A manticore goes after Laddermore, but she's feated on so she's fine. 

In return I killed the Griffon with some Stormblades. They also contribute to killing the Manticore. I score two. 
This is following Kaelyssa's turn. He had his Chimera punch a Stormblade so he can only contest my left zone with the HRT. Discordia (the robot without a torso) contests right. A manticore kills off most of my Stormblades. 
It's easy killing off the HRT on the left, and Discordia and whatever random guy he had contesting the right. Stormwall finally gets to punch something, after much shooting. Stryker runs into the right zone and dominates for the win.

Victory for Cygnar!

Honestly my opponent is still pretty fresh so this wasn't the most trying game for Stryker1. I like the list though. I'm not 100% about the Stormblades - they do shitloads of damage but Stryker cannot speed them up. He does protect them somewhat though which is great. Sadly they take a fair bit of real estate though. Considering I run 9 large bases and a colossal that speaks against their inclusion. 

I did play two more games versus Retribution, but I forgot to take any pictures at all. Stryker1 Storm Division won versus Rahn (same guy as this game) and versus Ossyan (not the same guy). It's a good list.

I did go to a tournament first weekend in March, with Circle Orboros. I played Wurmwood for 5 straight games and went 2-3. I'm a really bad Circle player it turns out (though I'm sure playing the lists beforehand at all would've helped a lot) so that's all I'm going to expand on that.

I'm getting another game in tomorrow, during which I hopefully remember to take pictures. With some luck it's not versus Retribution, though I might run Stryker1 again. I'm itching to bring Haley3 out again, but I feel I should investigate other lists. This is both so I can widen my repertoire and so that I can find a great list to pair with Haley3.
