My first game was against a Hexeris 1 list. I can’t remember everything that was in it, since the game wasn’t particularly long, but the gist of it went that Hexeris advanced behind a screen of Praetorian Swordsmen. My Gun Mages picked a few of them off, then Haley moved up, popped her feat, and Telekinesis’d him into a position where Stormwall could unload on him with four Focus. Despite a few transfers, he survived with two wounds. With Haley’s feat up, my opponent could only advance Hexeris back and advance up his infantry to be slaughtered by Boomhowler and Co. and the Gun Mages with Dead Eye while Stormwall backed up and put some ranged attacks into his heavies while dropping Lightning Pods for the Stormsmiths to exploit. It was a pretty brutal match for my opponent. While I think that Stormwall really put the early pressure on, it was Haley’s Telekinesis that set the stage. I stalled his forward advance so much that he couldn’t recover, and forfeited at the end of my third turn.
