Legion list is missing three points.
When we played this game, some models were more “expensive”

Legion was lead by Maciej Żelechowski.
Currently, the best Legion player in Poland.

I’m going first.

Deployment :

Idrians prey at Hellmouths.

Harbinger ran behind the wall.
Vilmon and Devout came b2b with her.
Rest of the army just ran.

Thagrosh cast Fog of War.
He also cast Draconic Blessing on Ogrun Warspears.
Tentacles charged at Idrians, but without much success.

End of 1st round :

Monks said +4 DEF and came to contest the circle zones.
The Book came behind the building and said “no spell casting in my cmd”.
Idrians shot at Hellmouths (one big CRA) and did few dmg to it.
Harbinger cast Rebuke on right Ogruns.

Legion had serious problem with hitting my models.
I lost only a few Idrians.
Blightbringer scored a point in the Legion’s zone.
Unfortunately, no one had the opportunity to contest my zone.

1-1 on the scenario.

End of 2nd round :

Harbinger said FEAT.
Idrians tried to shot Hellmouths again, but they failed.
Monks stayed in their positions.
I did everything to prevent my opponent from contesting my zone.
One Idrian ran to contest the enemy zone.

2-1 on the scenario.

On the right flank, Ogruns killed few Dwarves and almost whole Idrian unit.
On the left flank, Champion lost his horse.
Thagrosh killed Idrian in his zone and scored a point there.
As I predicted, no one was able to contest my zone.

3-2 on the scenario.

End of 3rd round :

Left Monk said +4 DEF and came to contest the Legion’s zone.
I managed to clear the left zone.
Idrians scored a point there.
Harbinger scored a point in her zone.

5-2 on the scenario.

Thagrosh tried to kill the Monk, but he missed and Monk dodged away.
The only models, that can get rid of a Monk from the zone, are Blight Wasps.
They surrounded the Monk and made few attacks vs him.
He survived everything!
I mean.. he passed 4 or 5 Tough rolls.
And stay in the zone still contesting.
After that, my opponent said, that it makes no sense to continue playing.

So, I won the game.

End of the game :

A few words after game :

  • Rebuke made that game for me.
    This spell stopped almost the whole right flank.
  • This game was rather about slowly collecting scenario points.
    I managed to break one of the zones first, so I won.
