DEMONSTRATION EVENT #19
Saturday Feb 27th
After Action Report
It was a very quiet Demo Day this last Saturday, so quiet I didn’t have to run a single demonstration, instead I supervised a pair of 300 point battles, the first between James and Mecha who wanted to test out their possible armies for BLOOD WILL TELL next months tournament.
Cordellia is revealed in turn 1 and forced to fall back from her vantage point but Aliss quickly closes
Unfortunately the game took a bit long and James had to split before its conclusion. Following this Jordan challenged Mecha to a similar battle. To make sure the game was to all the rules the pair fought under an 80 minute time limit. Their battle went up until 5 o’clock with only Goethia and Arkeid left on the table as the time ran out.
Despite the lack of Demonstrations the Shop sold a number of figures as well as yet again selling out of their copies of the Rulebook, I barely had to open my mouth to convince one guy to pick up a copy.
Light v The 3 Dragons
During the second 300 level match I helped out an old friend who had just decided to get into Anima (He had played it at Arcanacon). We settled on a quick 150 level game. Nick took Kronnen, Evangaline and Daniella while I continued my current plan to use all my figures at least once; in this case I took the Three Dragons, Li Long, Jiang and Lin Pao.
The battle began with Daniella taking the high ground the Dragons clustered out of view behind some ruins for as long as possible but the open ground meant they soon moved into the snipers sights
Kronnen strode forward into prime interception range while Evangaline climbed some stair to hide behind the archer. Daniella shot at Jiang hoping to detonate her Shooting Star ability but a gust of wind from Jiang’s staff sent the shot into the ground safely.
The following round started with Jiang springing forward, crashing into the exposed Kronnen with his Sister replicating the move in his wake. Each charge staggered the warrior but a quick heal from Evangaline set him right.
A moment later Li Long ambled up, despite his age the Old Master was able to reach his students and Kronnen and was able to unleash the full fury of Heaven and Earth smashing through his opponents armour despite an attempt to counter with Scarlet Heartbeat.
Reckoning that Kronnen could survive, Daniella fired from her perch into the combat, but the shot was aimed at Lin Pao who danced aside easily.
Jiang and Lin struck at Kronnen hoping to deal some damage to the tank but their efforts where soon reversed by Evangaline. Again Li Long struck in combination with his students the second blow was more than enough to finish off Kronnen despite the priestesses healing and protection magic.
With Kronnen down and Daniella failing to connect, Jiang and Lin leap up the side of the ruins to strike at Evangaline who quickly fell.
Taking the long way Li Long shambled up the ruins steps to grapple with Daniella before throwing her off the side of the building… a mistake that almost cost Lin Pao her life as Daniella recovered from the fall and launched an arrow in retaliation.
Not to be perturbed the Dragons leap from the building and raced over to finish Daniella off with a barrage of blows from Lin.
Well that was the just of the Demonstration Day, next month will see a variation from the normal routine as there is no event early in the month and a massive 2 day Tournament scheduled for its end.
