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 Proteus.
Right Idrians prey at Angelius.

Harbinger, Devout and Vilmon ran behind the wall.
Choir said Passage.
Rhupert gave Pathfinder to Dwarves.
Rest of my army just ran.

Absylonia cast all her upkeeps.
Beasts came forward and started shooting, but nothing terrible happened.
I lost only one Idrian.

End of 1st round :

Harbinger cast Purification.
Monks said +4 DEF and came to contest the zones.
Idrians started shooting.

Legion came a little bit forward.
Beasts started shooting and killed few Idrians.
Also, the right Champion lost his horse.
Spell Martyr ran to the left zone.
Shepherd ran to the right zone.
Nyss Sorceress said Wind Ravager and hid behind the building.

End of 2nd round :

Harbinger cast Guided Hand on right Idrians.
She also came to the middle zone.
Dwarves took care of the objective.
Choir said Passage.
Templar ran to the right zone.
Idrians charged and killed Nyss Sorceress.
Monks stayed in their positions.

3-0 on the scenario.

Absylonia said FEAT.
Seraph and Archangel started shooting.
Proteus killed a lot of my models (Grievous Wounds + four-inch reach).

Still 3-0 on the scenario.

End of 3rd round :

On the left flank, I tried to kill the Protues.
Unfortunately, without success.
On the right flank, I managed to get rid of the Angelius.
New prey = Archangel.
Templar scored a point in the right zone.

4-0 on the scenario.

Archangel trample to the right zone.
Proteus killed few models again.
Seraph stayed in the middle zone.

Still 4-0 on the scenario.

End of 4th round :

All I need to do now, is to score one scenario point.
Killing the Archangel seems like the best option.
Few Idrians and Templar easily took care of him.

I won the game 5-0 on the scenario.

A few words after game :

  • The only thing worth being afraid of, is Proteus.
    Rest of the Absylonia’s army should not cause problems.
  • I really like the change of Absylonia.
    When I played Legion, she was probably the worst warlock in the faction.
    Today, I would love to play her 😉
