The Battle of Platform VI

This is my first Adeptus Titanicus battle report. Unfortunately this game was probably the shortest of all the games I've played so far. I was going to write it up as a story, but since it only goes till turn two it doesn't really last long enough to do that. So here it is in a more bare bones format.

Hostile Battlefield: The Shadow Sentry.
Battle Level: Confrontation.
Deployment: Close Quarters.

Tiger Eyes vs. War Griffons

Tiger Eyes (1250pts.):
Nightstalker - Reaver (Titan Stalker), twin gatling blasters, apocalypse missile launcher.
Mada - Reaver, twin reaver chainfists, apocalypse missile launcher.
Tenebris Angelus - Warhound, vulcan mega bolter, plasma blast gun. Hunting auspex.
Umbra Venandi - Warhound, plasma blast gun, vulcan mega bolter. Hunting auspex.
House Rajha Questoris Knight banner - 3 Gallant Knights.
4 stratagem points: Blind Barrage (1), Offensive Surge (3).
Objective: Engage and Destroy.

War Griffons (1100pts.Underdog):
Invictus Nova - Reaver (Reckless Maverick), twin laser blasters, apocalypse missile launcher. Motive Sub-reactors.
Tempus Prima - Vulcan mega bolter, plasma blast gun.
Magna Canis - twin inferno cannons.
House Vyronii Questoris knight banner - 1 gallant, 1 paladin, 1 Warden.
House Vyronii Cerastus knight banner - 2 Lancers.
6 stratagem points: Blind Barrage (1), Sabotage (2), Orbital Lance Strike (2), Break Through (1).

Cargo (Invictus Nova).


 First Turn:

No one rolls high enough to repair.

Turn 2:
Tiger Eyes/War Griffons

Strategy Phase:
Tiger Eyes: Use Blind Barrage on Invictus Nova. Mada receives Charge orders.
War Griffons: Use Orbital Strike on the Gallants, killing 2. Invictus Nova receives Full Stride orders. Lancers receive charge orders.

Repair Phase:
All Titans who need to vent plasma successfully.

Movement Phase:
Tiger Eyes:
War Griffons: Cancel Mada's Charge order and gives it Split Fire with Sabotage. Lancers Charge and kill Tenebris Angelus. Tenebris Angelus suffers a Magazine Detonation, destroying a piece of terrain, damaging the Lancers, and taking one shield off of Nightstalker. Invictus Nova activates a second time due to Reckless Maverick and moves within 4" of the board edge.

Combat Phase:
Tiger Eyes: Nightstalker kills a Cerastus Knight, Umbra Venadi damages the second Cerastus Knight.

Game ends in War Griffin victory after a failed charge attempt from Mada.
