Circle was lead by Tomasz Mucha.
One of the best Polish players.

Tomasz goes first.

Deployment :

Left Idrians prey at left Woldwarden.
Right Idrians prey at right Woldwyrd.

Krueger cast 2x Telekinesis + Windstorm.
Stone Beasts trample forward and cast Lightning Storm towards Idrians.
BE also shot towards Idrians, but Harbinger “saved” them.
Rest of the army ran.

Harbinger ran behind the wall.
Vilmon and Devout came b2b with her.
Idrians said mini feat.
Choir said Shielding.
The Covenant said “no kd/stationary in my cmd”.

End of 1st round :

Krueger came behind the rock.
He also cast Windstorm again, TK and said FEAT.
Rest of the army came forward and started shooting at my army, but without much success.

I measured few things and it looks like I’m going to try CK.

The plan is :

– Rhupert will give Pathfinder to Harbinger.
– Hierophant will say Harmonious Exaltation.
– Reclaimer will give Future Sight to Harbinger.

Time for Harbinger.
She took a focus from the Wrack, cast Crusader’s Call and charged at Mannikin.
She wanted to cast 2x Cataclysm at Krueger, but I didn’t noticed, that Woldwyrd used his animus..
Which means, my spells will cost 1 more.
If only I knew, that Woldwyrd used his animus, I will never decide to try CK.
But now, I have nothing left to do but finish what I started.
Harbinger cast Cataclysm at Krueger, two Woldwyrds shot at her (Witch hunter), but nothing terrible happened.
The worst was, that Cataclysm missed…
AOE landed on Krueger dealing a LOT of dmg to him.
So, only left Champion can save the situation.
He charged at Krueger and hit all his attacks!
Krueger left on 2-3 hp, without Fury and set on fire.

Luckily for me, he burned to death.

I won the game by CK.

A few words after game :

  • As I said, if I only notice, that Woldwyrd used his animus, Harbinger will never try CK.
    The chances of success were too small.
  • After the end of our game, we “back” a few things and started playing normally.
    Unfortunately, I do not have photos from the “second” game.
    It ended with my win by scenario at the end of 7th round.
  • Tomasz, thanks for the game 😉
    I’m glad we were able to play, I really wanted to check this paring.
