I played :

Protectorate Army – 72 / 75 points

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 Shonsu.

I’m going first.

Deployment :

Elias Gade prey at left Stormblades.

Vindictus cast Penitence on left Errants and Def Ward on right Errants.
Choir said Passage.
Rest of the army just ran as far as possible.

Katherine and Harlan ran behind the wall.
Brisbane cast Explosivo on himself + Foxhole.
Left Stormblades said mini feat and Assault forward.
Few of them died due to Penitence.
On the right flank, most of the infantry hid in cover, created by Brisbane.

End of 1st round :

Vindictus cast true Path + FEAT.
On the left flank, Errants + Knights took care of thousands enemy models.
Choir said Passage again.
Dervish ran to the middle zone and behind the forest.
On the right flank, I shot only few models.

Harlan and Katherine annihilated almost whole left flank.
Also, two Avengers were able to shoot at my models, due to Explosive spell.
Unfortunately, I lost more models than I expected 🙁

0-0 on the scenario.

End of 2nd round :

Vindictus cast True Path and stayed in the safe place.
Thanks to Elias Gade, I was able to clear the left zone and score a point there.
Dervish and few Errants shots took care of models in the middle zone.
Knights massacred right Stormblades.
Only few of them survived.

2-0 on the scenario.

Shonsu killed as many models as possible.
Two heavy Jacks went to contest the zones.

Still 2-0 on the scenario.

End of 3rd round :

All I need to do now, is to score 3 scenario points.
In this situation, it does not seem so difficult.
Vindictus started and cast True Path.
Choir gave Battle to Dervish.
Left Knights (mini feat + Battle Driven), Elias Gade and Dervish destroyed left Avenger.
Errants + right Knights easily took care of 6 Stormguards Infantry models in the zones.
KES came to the right Avenger and slam him away.
And… that’s all.

I won the game 5-0 on the scenario.

A few words after game :

  • In short, this game has been won by PoM solos.
    Elias Gade + KES are just amazing.
  • Elias shot two models each turn.
    He helped me so much, clearing the left flank at a crucial moment.
  • KES is my favourite solo.
    Slam possibility on warrior model is too good not to take.
