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 :

Idrians prey at Destroyers.

Round 1

Rhupert gave Pathfinder to Harbinger.
She ran behind the wall.
Choir said Passage.
Idrians said mini feat.

Harkevich cast Mobility.
Destroyers came forward and started shooting at my army.
Harbinger used Martyrdom few times and I only lost 2-3 models.

Round 2

Monks said +4 DEF and came to contest the zones.
Idrians started shooting at Destroyers, but without much success.
Jacks and Champions stayed in the safe positions.
Dwarves ran as far as possible.

Harkevich cast Mobility again + FEAT.
I lost few right Idrians and the objective.

0-1 on the scenario.

End of 2nd round:

Harbinger cast Crusader’s Call.
She also cast Guided Hand on Dwarves.
Monks stayed in their positions.
Templar started hitting one of the Destroyers, dealing a lot of dmg to him.
Rhupert gave Pathfinder to Dwarves, who charged the objective and the Jack in the zone.
They destroyed the objective and slammed Destroyer outside of the zone.
Devout ran to the left zone to score a point there.
Book came forward and said “no spell casting im my cmd”.

2-1 on the scenario.

All Destroyers came to the zones.
Two of them started hitting Templar, but he survived on several dmg boxes.
On the left flank, I lost few Dwarves.

Still 2-1 on the scenario.

End of 3rd round:

On the left flank, Dwarves slammed away two Destroyers.
Devout stayed in the left zone to score another point.
Templar finished another Destroyer.
Harbinger came to the safe place and said FEAT.
Monks stayed in their positions.

3-1 on the scenario.

My opponent did everything to kill as many models as possible.
Unfortunately, he destroyed only Templar.
We’ve found together, that it is impossible for Khador to win this game.
So, we ended it.

I won by surrender of the opponent.

End of the game :

A few words after game :

  • Before the game, I was pretty sure, that my opponent will score one and only scenario point.
    As I predicted, he only scored one point (objective).
    The zones were secured by Monks and Champions.
  • My list does not have a chance to get rid of seven heavy Khador’s Jacks.
    My plan was, to gain an advantage on the scenario and survive to 7th round.
