A Midnight Heist - Wolsung Battle Report Triad VS Ven Rier

It's a beautiful night in the city of Lyoness and all through the streets the people are heading to bed. But, in one corner of the Warehouse District an unfortunate Lab Assistant has been left in one of the cities Golem Foundries.

This poor soul is in for the worst night of his life as the Triad Of The Lotus Dragon, led by Justin and the Ven Rier Agents, led by Lance, have set their sights on stealing some secret Inventors Club technical documents.

Will the shadow Ven Reir take the day or will the Triad gain the information they need?

Nice report and a fun scenario well played by both sides.

My only gripe would be that I would much rather watch a single 45 minute video than 12 short ones. I like to watch while I work / paint (as I am sure do many others) and its really hard work to keep clicking forward / back to see the next part.

IMO the live blog works fine for things like army builds or long series such as the Laketown build, but not so well for battle reports. I understand there will be a little more editing work to do but IMO it is worth it.

Not seen that option. Maybe I am missing something.

I think a couple of games with john and a bit of time with the rulebook will help, it takes awhile to lay the technical foundation . it will be easier to concentrate on your tactics when you know your options a little better . still early days
build some lists for the other factions on paper ,it will help you become more familiar with what options they have available . then build some lists with counters to the specific threats and scenarios.

Guys, great report – I love wolsung and bought loads having seen it on BoW – one thing you forgot though, when defending in melee u get +2 to reflex if I recall correctly, or you did in first ed. 😉

Nice battlereport. I second @lunchbox in his opinion that a single video of 45 minutes to an hour is better than all the short clips. I also, like @king, have almost all the minis of Wolsung, and after Spiel Essen I probably have all

Nice Battle Report and Scenario! Looks like you played 2nd Ed. cards Just some observations that could have changed the game a bit. Golems get +1 Action when spawning from Workshop. The Golems could reroll 1 dice within 6 of the Icefeldgenerator…but not sure if that was ever the case. At Lance…remember Wormwood can move the generator..so it is more usefull…and buff other models! And the big one as last…Golems have fire immunity….so I have not found anything in the rules how that works with the Undead fire vulnerability…so that would be an importent one to solve…if you do…let me know 😉

@lancorz Just to jumpstart your final thoughts…use woormwood to buff your Heros/Golems…use his ability to move icefield Generator…use Ursula to get Cards and heal…use Elisabeth´s once a game ability early…and then buff/move Golems.

A “glory of un-live” buffed Golem in range of icefield with Elisabeths program 4 an 1 buffs that starts at the Workshop is a killer with a 12″ Charge range…and a steam and smoke buffed Elisabeth is even more of a Monster herself than that Golem 😉

Not an easy faction for sure…and more so to learn the game…lots of Card Timing and synergies to get them going…but also lots of Options to annoy/surprise your Opponent…and having fun with that 🙂

@lancorz For all who like to know…I asked the developers how to handle the Necrogolem and got this answer: “Immunity takes precedence over Vulnerability as it makes the attack miss altogether so there’s no Damage to be doubled.”
