Scenario – Spread the Net

Jakub won the starting roll and he decided to go first.

Deployment :

PoM :

Thyra cast Occultation on right horses and Silence of Death on left horses.
She also cast Gates of Death on herself.
Choir said Passage.
Whole army ran forward.

Mercenaries :

Ossrum cast Snipe on Kell and Fire for Effect on Artillery Corps.
My army came a little bit forward, I was afraid of 14,5 charge ranges (horses).
Kell shot two Flameguards.
Artillery Corps killed one horse.

After 1st round :

PoM :

Horses started flanking.
Flameguards came forward and said minifeat + Shield Wall.
Blood of Martyrs came to the left zone.
Choir said Passage.

Mercenaries :

Anastasia came from Ambush and killed Nicia.
Ossrum said FEAT + cast Energizer.
Artilleries, Kell and Eliminators killed as many Flameguards as possible.
Bashers slammed/charged at Flame Bringers, killing two of them.
Blasters shot another two.
Eiryss hit Blood of Martyrs with Disruptor Bolt. 
Ragman ran to the left flag.

3-0 for me

After 2nd round :

PoM :

“Fake” Anastasia came from Ambush.
She charged at my “real” Anastasia, but missed!

Lucky me!

Daughters of the Flame also came from Ambush and killed Ragman.
Jakub killed few models.
He also contested all possible scenario pieces.
On the right flank, Flameguards made one big CMA to hit Eliminator.
And…

hahahahaha

Blood of Martyrs scored a point in the left zone.

Mercenaries :

I started with my “real” Anastasia, who intended to take revenge on “fake” Anastasia.
She came over her back, and.. missed!

It is impossible, you had to kill her!

Rest of my army killed as many enemy models as possible.
Eiryss hit Sanctifier with Disruptor Bolt. 

4-1 for me 

After 3rd round :

After this round, Jakub did not have a chance to win this game anymore.
So, we ended it.

Afterthoughts :

Jakub, it was a pleasure to play with you – as always 😉
Anastasia vs Anastasia fight was EPIC.

Personally, I really like Thyra in Guardians.
I played similar list with much success.

I know, that Blood of Martyrs and horses can hit really hard.
But probably, my army had too much ARM under FEAT – even for them.

Thanks for reading!
