Grymkin was led by Konrad Sosnowski.
My WTC teammate.

I’m going first.

Unfortunately, the zones are transparent, so it is very difficult to notice where they are.
In the first picture, I marked them.

Deployment :

Left Idrians prey at left Skin & Moans.
Right Idrians prey at right Skin & Moans.

Whole army ran as far as possible.
Harbinger ran behind the wall.

Gorehounds started flanking.
Beasts moved aggressively forward.
Wanderer cast Star-Crossed and create his three “traps”.

End of 1st round :

Monk said +4 DEF and came to contest the flag.
Idrians started shooting at Skin & Moans.

Wanderer cast Star-Crossed again.
Skin & Moans came a little bit forward.
Gremlin Swarm ran to contest my flag.
Left Dread Rots charged at my Idrians, but without much success.

0-0 on the scenario.

End of 2nd round :

Attendant Priest gave Magical Weapons to Dwarves.
They took care of Gremlin Swarm and few contesting Dread Rots.
Monk stayed in his position.
Vilmon scored a point on my flag.
The Book said “no spell casting in my cmd”.

2-0 on the scenario.

Gorehounds came to the zones.
Skin & Moans tried to kill the Monk, but without success.
Another Gremlin Swarm ran to contest my flag.
Wanderer cast Star-Crossed.

Still 2-0 on the scenario.

End of 3rd round :

Harbinger came to the safe place.
Dwarves killed Gremlin Swarm contesting the flag.
Idrians shot few Dread Rots.
Vilmon scored a point on my flag, again.

3-0 on the scenario.

Death Knell and Beasts came to contest the zones and my flag.
They killed few of my models.
But the most important model survived (Monk contesting the flag).
Wanderer cast Star-Crossed – like always.

Still 3-0 on the scenario.

End of 4th round :

I took care of two Gorehounds and Crabbit.
I also dealt few dmg to Beasts.

Still 3-0 on the scenario.

Wanderer shot at Monk and hit 🙁
So, -2 DEF for my solos.
Skin & Moans came, hit and killed him.
On the right flank, I lost a lot of Dwarves.
Thanks to BE aura..

3-1 on the scenario.

End of 5th round :

Harbinger ran to the safe place.
Second Monk came to contest the flag.
Reclaimer gave Ashen Veil to him.

Still 3-1 on the scenario.

Konrad cleared the right zone.
Wanderer scored a point there.

3-2 on the scenario.

End of 6th round :

Unfortunately, I have no way to get any scenario point this turn.
All I can do, is run as many models as possible into zones and near the flags.
I did it and left the Konrad with 51 seconds on the clock.

Still 3-2 on the scenario.

Konrad was faster than wind!
He killed tons of Idrians, two Champions and the Monk contesting his flag.
Gremlin Swarm ran to the flag to score a point there.
He end his turn with 1 second on the clock!

3-3 on the scenario.

In this situation, to determine the winner, it is necessary to count who killed more army points.

Unfortunately, I killed less and I lost the game.

End of the game :

A few words after game :

  • Monks contesting flags were the key to victory.
    Unfortunately, in the last turn, Konrad killed one of them and scored 3th scenario point.
  • It was the first time I had to deal with the Wanderer.
    The next time I have a slightly different, better plan for the game.
  • Unfortunately, it was the last round of the league.
    My next opponent did not have time to make an appointment.
  • Konrad, it was a good game!
    You have faster hands than I thought!
