I played :

Protectorate Army – 73 / 75 points

[High Reclaimer 1] The High Reclaimer [+32]
– Crusader [10]
– Fire of Salvation [14]
– Repenter [8]
– Hierophant [3]
Exemplar Bastion Seneschal [5]
Scrutator Potentate Severius [0(6)]

Wrack [1]

Exemplar Bastions (max) [15]
Exemplar Vengers (max) [20]
Idrian Skirmishers (max) [15]
– Idrian Skirmisher Chieftain & Guide [0(5)]

This list has 2 points less now.
I played it when PoM CID started.
Probably Bastions and FoS were more expensive then.

Cygnar goes first.

Deployment :

Idrians prey at Thunderhead.

Cygnar ran as far as possible.
Centurions trample forward + reposition, to be even further.
Journeyman cast Arcane Shield on Thunderhead.
Kraye cast Admonition on Centurion.

Hierophant said Harmonious Exaltation.
High Reclaimer came forward and created 3 clouds.
Idrians made one big CRA and dealt some dmg to Thunderhead.
Cavalry and Jacks ran behind the clouds.
Bastions ran forward.
Severius cast Road to War.

End of 1st round :

Thunderhead started shooting at Bastions.
He killed two of them and wounded the others.
Kraye cast Horsepower + FEAT.
Centurion charged at my Idrian in the cloud, to reach FoS.
He barely survived, literally on 3/4 boxes, without mace arm and cortex.
Arlan repaired Thunderhead a little bit.

Choir said Battle.
High Reclaimer cast Hand of Fate on left Crusader.
He also create one cloud b2b with the forest.
Left Crusader took care of the Centurion.
Idrians, Repenter and one Bastion destroyed the Thunderhead.
Bastion Seneschal came b2b with the right flag.
Vengers stayed in position.
One of them ran to engage two Jacks.

2-0 on the scenario.

End of 2nd round :

Cygnar killed two Vengers.
Hammersmith and Centurion came to contest the left zone.
Rest of the army killed few Idrians and Bastions.

Still 2-0 on the scenario.

Severius ran forward, to “gave” Eye of Menoth to as many models as possible.
High Reclaimer said FEAT.
He resurrected few Idrians and Bastions.
All I need to win, is to score 3 scenario points.
The left zone is guarded too well.
I need to destroy the objective and Defender in the right zone to score 2 points.
Bastion Seneschal will score 3rd point b2b with the right flag.
With ease, I managed to destroy the Defender and objective.

I won the game 5-0 on the scenario.

End of the game :

A few words after game :

  • Did you know, that Thunderhead’s pulse ignore HR’s clouds ?
    This Jack was my priority.
    I knew, that if I get rid of him, the game will be practically won.
  • Severius0..
    He is just amazing!
