Warmachine Batrep: Borka vs Rahn

Our club wrapped up its Umbra league a few weeks back and I was able to catch a quick game.  Turned out to be a fairly one-sided match versus Monte and the infamous Borka Kegslayer, Most Difficult Warlock To Kill In The Whole Game.  Or, at least I think that's his title.  Seeing him, I insisted on scenario.

Borka Kegslayer and "Kenny"

Borka Kegslayer
- Pyg keg carrier ("Kenny")
- Dire troll mauler
- Troll axer
- Troll impaler
- Swamp troll
Fell caller hero
Trollkin fennblades (full+UA)
Troll whelps
(note: List is 39/40 points due to not enough models)

... versus ...

Adeptus Rahn Shyeel
- Phoenix
- Phoenix
Dawnguard sentinels (min+UA+soulless)
House Shyeel battle mages
House Shyeel battle mages

Monte deployed his entire collection of trolls.  I am not any kind of expert on trolls, but I suspect this may not have been Borka's finest list.  Borka an the beasts deployed in a clump slightly left of center and the fennblades and posse deployed right of center so the groups were about a foot apart.

Rahn's feat was devastating, allowing Rahn and the battlemages to pull all four warbeasts close enough for phoenix and sentinel charges, who were then controlling the central and left-most objectives.  The fennblades spent several turns trying to crunch through battlemages to get to Rahn -- and they would have -- but Retribution had won on scenario before then.

Not one attack was made against Borka.
