Vindictus just ran to face the Turtle and die with honor :

I lost the game by CK/scenario.

A few words after game :

  • Jalaam’s FEAT, used after mine, won this game.
    Unfortunately, in this matchup, I was forced to use FEAT first.
  • Deadeye..
    It was almost impossible to start close combat.
    I was losing so many models per turn.
