This list has 1 point less now.

Cryx was lead by Wiktor Harężlak.
My WTC teammate.

I’m going first.

Deployment :

Vindictus cast Def Ward on right Errants + True Path.
Choir said Passage.
Whole army ran as far as possible.

Asphyxious cast Mobility + Ashen Veil on Malice.
Malice ran as far as possible.
Kraken started shooting at models near Malice, to give her few souls.

End of 1st round :

So.. Malice is now DEF 13/15 and ARM 25..
I send few models with hope to destroy Cortex or something, but without success.
On the right flank, Errants destroyed Nightwretch.
Vindictus cast Admonition on middle Crusader.

Wiktor started thinking about CK.
It took him a lot of time, but after measuring everything, we agreed that CK is not possible.
Kraken easily took care of my models engaging Malice.
4-inch reach is a thing.
Left Nightwretch ran to contest my zone.
Asphyxious cast Ashen Veil on Slayer in the left zone.

0-1 on the scenario.

End of 2nd round :

Vindictus cast True Path + FEAT.
I easily destroyed Nightwretch in my zone.
Gravus took care of Scavenger in the right zone.
Someone ran to contest Wiktor’s zone.
Left Knights used their mini feat and charged at Slayer.
Unfortunately, DEF 15 was too much for them..
Only 2 Knights hit!
Rest of the models were trying to be problematic for my opponent.

1-1 on the scenario.

Wiktor stared his turn with 5-6 minutes on the clock.
He did what he can, but in the next round time just ended and I won by deathclock.

A few words after game :

  • We checked what would happen, if Wiktor had more time on the clock.
    He needed 13 minutes more to wipe out my forces.
  • Before the game, I thought it is a good paring for Vindictus.
    But.. this caster does not help his army offensively.
    So, there is no way to increase hit/dmg, except Sev0 ofc.
  • After this game, I started to think about changing Vindictus for another caster.
    HR looked perfectly to lead Exe theme.
