Skorne was lead by Damian Kopczyński.
The best PL Skorne player this season.


This tournament was before the PoM CID.
That’s why Harbinger has only 24 wj points.

I’m going first.

Deployment :

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

Harbinger ran behind the wall.
Vilmon and Devout came b2b with her.
Choir said Passage.
Rest of my army just ran as far as possible.

Zaadesh cast Inviolable Resolve on Animantarax.
He also cast Battle-Charged and Krea’s animus on himself.
2x Sentry and Gladiator ran forward.
Archidon hid behind the building.
2x Animantarax trample forward, started shooting and reposition forward.

End of 1st round :

Harbinger cast Purification and Crusader’s Call.
She also said FEAT.
Left Idrians charged at Animantarax and killed him.
Right Idrians and Champion charged at another Animantarax, but he survived on few boxes (because of Agonizer -2 STR aura).
One Monk ran to contest the right flag.
Other Monk said +4 DEF and came to contest the middle zone.
Templar ran to the right zone.
Left Champion came to the left flag.

Zaadesh said FEAT.
He also created two clouds.
Beast Handlers gave +2 STR to Archidon, who started hitting my Templar.
Rest of the army killed as many Idrians as possible.
Sentry tried to kill a Monk, but without success.
Unfortunately, no one was able to contest my left flag and my right zone.

2-0 on the scenario.

End of 2nd round :

Idrians shot Beast Handlers in the left zone.
Champion and Templar stayed in their positions.
Rhupert gave Pathfinder to Harbinger.
She just ran to the left zone to score a final point there.
Sentry could not kill the Harbinger (full hp + focus) with a single Def Strike.

I won the game 5-0 on the scenario.

End of the game :

A few words after game :

  • Getting rid of the left Turtle in my second round, won this game for me.
    It was much easier to start planning how to score in my opponent turns.
  • Also, going as a first helped me a lot.
