Grymkin was led by Tomasz Tutaj.
My WTC teammate and one of the best Polish players.

Tomek goes first.

Deployment :

Idrians prey at Rattlers.

Grymkins just ran as far as possible.

Harbinger ran behind the wall.
Devout came b2b with her.
Few Idrians shot at Rattlers + Reposition back.
Rest of the army ran forward.

End of 1st round :

Dread Rots and Skin & Moans came aggressively forward.
The rest of the army withdrew slightly.

I managed to get rid of Skin & Moans and one Gremlin Swarm.
Not bad.
Harbinger came to safer place.
Champions started “flanking”.
Monk said +4 DEF and came to contest the flag.
Book said “no kd/stationary in my cmd”.
Unfortunately, I did not have the opportunity to score.

0-0 on the scenario.

End of 2nd round :

Dreamer cast Manifest Destiny.
She also tried to critically shoot at Monk and move him away from flag and Martyrdom.
Unfortunately, she did not succeed.
Rattlers and Skin & Moans took care of my Idrians.
On the left flank, Gorehound charged at Champion, but he survived the attack.

Harbinger cast Guided Hand on Dwarves + Crusader’s Call.
Dwarves charged at Rattlers, but after poor dices on dmg, nothing terrible happened.
Reclaimer gave Ashen Veil on Monk.
Left Champion killed Gorehound.
Book said “no kd/stationary in my cmd”.

Still 0-0 on the scenario.

End of 3rd round :

Dread Rot killed left Champion.
Rattler took care of Dwarves.
Dreamer tried (again) to critically shoot at Monk, but still without success.

Reclaimer gave Ashen Veils to Monks.
Two Monks are still contesting the flag.
Harbinger cast Rebuke on Dread Rots.
To be honest, I could not do much and I did not do much this turn.
I just put some models into the zones to contest it.

Still 0-0 on the scenario.

End of 4th round :

Tomek took care of one Monk.
Unfortunately for him, the second one is still contesting the flag.
Grymkins did everything to clear the left zone, but Attendant Priest survived there.
No points for Grymkin!

On the right flank, Champion killed Gorehound.
Templar ran to the zone.
On the left flank, I put as many models as possible to contest the zone.

Still 0-0 on the scenario.

End of 5th round :

Grymkins managed to clear the left zone.
Dread Rots scored a point there.

0-1 on the scenario.

Choir member ran to the left zone to contest it.
I knew, that I would lose this game in the next turn.
Harbinger just ran to the right zone to die with honor.

End of 6th round :

Grymkins cleared the left zone again.
They also killed all my models, that were able to contest that zone.
Gremlin Swarm scored a point on the flag.
Dreamer came to the safe place.
Of course, Tomek could just kill Harbinger.
But there was no need to do it.
He won this game anyway and scenario victory is always better than CK victory.

0-3 on the scenario.

Whatever I do in my turn, I will lose.
So, we finished the game.

I lost the game on the scenario.

What does my opponent have to say about the game?

“This game I wanted to finish in last turns, so most important thig was not give free points.
I advence pretty as a brick which harder for this list becouse I only have 3 heavies.
I didnt pick no heal arcana becouse I forgot about it, so healin and -2 spd had to be enough.
The biggest issue were monks as always so waited until dreamer will hit her crit shot to move them out of range of book.
My rat can go up to 11 so I need 11 to hit.
After I cleared one flank I moved my Be on second flank and started finishing pom army which finaly give me scenario point.
And game was clear and easy to finish.”

A few words after game :

  • Rattlers won this game.
    They killed whole my infantry.
    I was hoping to get rid of them before a serious fight.
    Unfortunately, I did not succeed.
  • After this game, I was thinking about adding Sanctifier to the list.
    I think he would help me a lot with these Gremlin Swarms.
  • Tomek, good and challenging game as always.
    I am waiting for a rematch!
