I’m going first.

Deployment :

Elias Gade prey at Dahlia Hallyr.

Vindictus cast Penitence on left Errants and Def Ward on right Errants.

Minions ran as far as possible.
Rask cast Veil of Mists to block my LoS.
He also cast Admonition on Wrastler + FEAT.
Alten Ashley shot one Errant and reposition back.

End of 1st round :

I could not do too much, because of Rask’s FEAT.
I set the models in convenient positions.
Vindictus cast Admonition on Templar + FEAT.
Knights Exemplar Seneschal ran to the Minions zone.

Mist Speaker gave Magical Weapon to Ironback.
Turtle shot into a group of my models, but Devout used his Shield Guard and nothing terrible happened.
Alten shot another Errant.
Dahlia cast Haunting Melody and she came to the zone.
Snake killed two Errants.
No one had the opportunity to contest my zone.

1-0 on the scenario.

End of 2nd round :

Vindictus cast True Path.
On the left flank, I sent a lot of models to kill the Snake.
Unfortunately, he survived on several boxes 🙁
In the middle, I managed to get rid of objective and Turtle.
Exemplar Seneschal still blocks Minions zone.
On the right flank, Knights cleared the zone and scored there.

4-0 on the scenario.

Snake killed as many Errants as possible.
Wrastler and Gobbers ran to contest my zone.
On the right flank, Battle Boar and Valkyries killed few Knights.
Exemplar Seneschal “died”, but he is still contesting the zone.

Still 4-0 on the scenario.

End of 3rd round :

All I need to win, is to get 1 more scenario point.
Dervish took care of Gobbers in my zone.
Devout slammed away Wrastler.
Someone came to contest Minions zone.
That’s all.

I won the game 5-0 on the scenario.

End of the game :

A few words after game :

  • I think it was a good paring for me.
    My opponent did not have enough models to contest my zone properly.
  • Dahlia’s Haunting Melody is so annoying…
    She contested the left zone whole game.
  • It is important to use FEAT after Rask’s FEAT.
    It makes the game a lot easier.
