Cryx goes first.

Deployment :

Left Idrians prey at left Bloodgorgers.
Right Idrians prey at right Bloodgorgers.

Skarre cast Dash and Deceleration.
She also cast Draconic Blessing on left Bloodgorgers.
Whole army ran forward.

Idrians started shooting at Bloodgorgers.
But.. my opponent passed a way too much Tough checks..
Monks said +4 DEF and came forward.
Harbinger cast Crusader’s Call.
She also said FEAT and charged forward.
Choir said Passage.

End of 1st round :

Left Bloodgorgers charged at my Idrians.
They were immune to my FEAT dmg (Draconic Blessing).
Skarre cast Dash again and Draconic Blessing on right Bloodgorgers.
She also started shooting, but nothing terrible happened.
Slayers came a little bit forward.
Right Bloodgorgers killed a lot of my Idrians 🙁

Monks said +4 DEF and came to contest the zones and the flag.
Idrians and Dwarves killed as many models as possible.
Champion ran to the left flag to score a point there.

1-0 on the scenario.

End of 2nd round :

Skarre said FEAT + cast all possible spells.
She also shot few of my models.
Bloodgorgers charged again, killing Dwarves and few Idrians.
The worst thing is, that I lost two Monks this turn..
Thanks Slayers!

1-2 on the scenario.

Sooner or later (without Monks) I will lose that game.
One and only chance to win, is CK attempt.
Skarre is staying naked (without Focus) and wounded (her FEAT).
After a lot of combinations, I cleared all disturbing models.
Only Gerlak survived, but he is knock down.
I can try CK now 🙂

The plan :

– Rhupert gave Pathfinder to Harbinger
– Hierophant said Harmonious Exaltation
– Reclaimer gave Future Sight to Harbinger
– Harbinger took a Focus from the Wrack

Technically, Harbinger has 12 FOC now.
She cast Crusader’s Call and charged at Skarre.
She also cast 2x Cataclysm at Skarre (pow 20) and killed her.

I won the game by CK.

End of the game :

A few words after game :

  • The loss of Monks (in a single turn) hurt me very much.
    It made contesting almost impossible for me.
  • Draconic Blessing countered my list a little bit.
    Models under this spell were immune to dmg from my FEAT and Ashen Veil.


  1. Hello Mateusz!
    I follow your blog with a lot of diligence! Always impatient to read the next one!
    I’m starting to play Pom with your Harbinger’s list and have in pairing with her Durst for the moment.
    I think about Anamag and Skarre1 4-5 stalker with Harbi. Do these match have any chance to Harbi to win? Do you already try them?
    Thanks a lot for your good job!

    1. Hi Nicolas!
      Thank you!
      It is so nice to hear, that you like it 🙂
      Harb + Durst is a very solid pair, good choice !
      I never played vs Anamag, but I really wanted to try it.
      I think it will be super hard for Harb to win vs her 🙁
      If I only try it, I’ll let you know how it worked 😉
      About Skarre1 and Stalkers.. it is a nightmere for Harbinger.
      I played vs something similiar and I wasn’t happy.
      Skarre1 and Stalkers = the worst possible matchup for Harb.
