I’m going first.

Deployment :

Idrians prey at Angelius.
Neraph started with Fury on himself (theme benefit).
Angelius started with Admonition on himself (theme benefit).
Fyanna started with Iron Flesh on herself (theme benefit).

Harbinger ran behind the wall.
Rhupert gave Pathfinder to Dwarves.
Idrians ran to the hill.
Devout and Vilmon stayed b2b with Harbinger.

Ice Witches gave Puppet Master to shooting Beasts.
Seraph and 2x Angelius came forward and started shooting at Idrians.
Nyss Sorceress spray at Idrians + Reposition to block my models.

End of 1st round :

My opponent hit every possible attack in the previous round…
Harbinger could not do much besides healing.
Champion killed left Nyss Sorceress.
Another Champion charged and right Nyss Sorceress and missed all his attacks 🙁
Fortunately, the Monk killed that Hellion.
The bad news is, that Monk and Champion are out of Martyrdom range.
Left Monk said +4 DEF and came to contest two zones.

Legion took care of right Monk and Champion.
Beasts also killed few Idrians.
Fyanna said FEAT.

End of 2nd round :

Harbinger cast Guided Hand on Dwarves and Idrians.
She retreated slightly to a safe place + FEAT.
I managed to get rid of two Neraphs and few support models.

Legion killed as many models as possible.
I lost Reckoner, few Idrians and Dwarves.

Still 0-0 on the scenario.

End of 3rd round :

Idrians took care of “preyed” Angelius.
New prey = Ice Witches.
Champion, Vilmon and Dwarves killed another Angelius and Seraph.

The remains of the Legion killed almost all of the Idrians.
Fyanna took care of few Dwarves.

Still 0-0 on the scenario.

End of 4th round :

Rhupert gave Pathfinder to Harbinger.
She ran to the left zone.
Rest of the army killed Naga and few support models.

Fyanna killed rest of the Dwarves + objective.
She also scored a point in the right zone.

0-2 on the scenario.

End of 5th round :

For the last two rounds, I’ve got rid of every possible enemy model.
Only Fyanna stayed alive.
Few of my models just contested the right and the middle zone.
Because of Martyrdom, they were “unkillable”.
At the same time, I was scoring in the left and middle zones.

At the end of 7th round, I won the game 5-2 on the scenario.

End of the game :

A few words after game :

  • Fyanna is a very difficult opponent.
    With her four-inch reach, it’s very easy to be assassinated.
  • Unfortunately, dices in my second turn were terrible.
    This turn caused, that the rest of the game I had to play without the two most important Solos.
  • Guided Hand and Purification were priceless in this game.
