Cryx was lead by Wiktor Harężlak.
My WTC teammate.

I’m going first.

Deployment :

Elias Gade prey at Blackbane’s Ghost Raiders.

Vindictus cast Def Ward on left Errants.
He also cast Penitence on right Errants.
Rest of the army just ran.

Deneghra came forward + FEAT.
Ghost Raiders ran to the forest.
Rest of the army stayed outside of my charge ranges.

End of 1st round :

Vindictus cast True Path + FEAT.
Errants shot few models.
Gravus came b2b with the right flag.
Rhupert gave Tough to right Errants.
Knights Exemplar Seneschal ran to contest the left flag.

Few Cryx models ran forward.
Deneghra withdrew lightly.
She cast 3x Venom (through arc node).
She target friendly models, to avoid my FEAT.
Revenant Cannon Crew took care of Knights Exemplar Seneschal.
Unfortunately, no one has been able to contest the right flag.

1-0 on the scenario.

End of 2nd round :

I was hoping that I would succeed to clear two zones.
I managed only with the left one.
Templar came there to score a point.
Gravus stayed b2b with the right flag.
A lot of my models ran to contest the left flag.

3-0 on the scenario.

In all possible ways, Wiktor tried to clear the left zone and the flag.
Unfortunately, he did not succeed.
Several models survived in the zone.
One Errant still contested the flag.
On the right flank, Cryx killed as many models as possible.
Someone contested the right flag.

Still 3-0 on the scenario.

End of 3rd round :

Everything I need now, is to get two scenario points.
Left Errant took care of “wounded” Nightwretch.
Choir said Battle.
Templar charged and destroyed the objective.
Gravus killed models around the flag.
Rhupert came to the flag to score a point.
That’s all.

I won the game 5-0 on the scenario.

A few words after game :

  • Errants and their Self-Sacrifice ability won this game.
    The wise use of this ability, causes many problems for the opponent.
  • Fortunately, the Deneghra’s FEAT (after the changes) is not so scary as it once was.
    The possibility of running during her FEAT, changes a lot.
