End of the game :

A few words after game :

  • I played the same paring few hours before this game.
    The Covenant of Menoth is so important vs Krueger list.
    Lawgiver’s Creed used correctly, is the key to victory.
  • Also, Sturdy Champions are really great here.
    Krueger can not push them during his FEAT turn.
