This list has 3 points less now.
I played it when PoM CID started.
Probably Officers and Gravus were more expensive then.

Cygnar was lead by Piotr Palacz.

I’m going first.

Deployment :

Elias Gade prey at Commandos.

Vindictus cast True Path and Def Ward on right Errants.
Rhupert gave Tough to left Errants.
Whole army just ran.
Left Errants hid behind the forest.
Right Errants climbed the hill.

Long Gunners came to the trench and shot 3 of my models (Gravus collected souls).
Haley cast Tactical Supremancy on Trenchers.
They came forward, created cloud wall and repo back.

End of 1st round :

Vindictus said FEAT.
He also cast Penitence on left Errants.
Elias Gade and right Errants killed few Commandos.
Choir said Shielding.
Templar ran to the right zone.

Cygnar killed models outside of my FEAT range.
Trenchers created clouds again + repo back.
Funny thing.. few models tried to kill KES contesting the Cygnar’s zone.
But he survived!
No one was able to contest my zone.

1-0 on the scenario.

End of 2nd round :

Vindictus cast True Path.
KES killed one model and stayed in his “contesting” position.
Errants and Gade cleared the right zone.

3-1 on the scenario.

Piotr killed as many models as possible.
He tried to clear the left zone, but without success (two Errants survived there).
Patrol Dog ran to contest my zone.
Two Trenchers came to contest the right zone.
Maxwell Finn killed my Seneschal, finally…
Cygnar destroyed my objective and scored one point.

Still 3-1 on the scenario.

End of 3rd round :

In two subsequent rounds, there was a situation, in which I had to score 2 scenario points to win the game.
Devout killed two models in my zone.
Vindictus charged and killed “baby” Haley in the right zone.
That’s all.

I won the game 8-3 on the scenario.

End of the game :

A few words after game :

  • Elias Gade is invaluable in this paring.
    He is “Commandos killer”.
    Just prey on them and shot two per turn.
  • Also, Vindictus’s FEAT is amazing vs Haley3.
    Unless, your opponent has Lady Aiyana in his list..
    But I found, that Alexia and the Risens are much popular pick.
    Good for Vindictus! 😉

  1. Love the list, 3pts free is quite good now as well after the CiD as you could also go for a Knights Errant Seneschal and have Unyielding kicking around where needed for more hilarity 🙂

    1. Thanks!
      It is one of my favourite!
      Errant Seneschal will be perfect 😉
      Or.. I can just kick Rhupert, add Anastasia + Errants UA.
      Sounds cool too.
