RoS goes first.

Deployment :

Garryth casts Mirage on Sentinels and Sentry on BE.
Everything run forward.

Thyra casts Silence of Death on left horses, Occultation on right horses and Gates of Death on herself.
Nicia shot and killed one Stormfall – yay!

End of 1st round :

RoS killed a lot of Temple Guards.
Sentinels went back to be out of my ranges.
Manticore set covering fire which totally blocked my Daughters.

Left horses destroyed Moros.
Thyra cast Silence of Death on right Flamebringers which destroyed Manticore and two Sentinels.
Mechanik runs to the flag.

2-0 on the scenario.

End of 2nd round :

BE annihilate cavalry (aiming RAT 9, 2x shoot + third from Sentry – too much for Flamebringers).
Garryth came to the flag and FEATed – he “turn off” my Sanctifier 🙁
Sentinels killed four Flamebringers and few Daughters.

Pyrrhus charged Lanyssa, but missed.
He made 2x shield attack on Phoenix to push him outside the zone.
Last model who can try to kill Lanyssa is Temple Guards boss.
Unfortunately he didn’t hit and the Sanctifier will not score in the zone.
Daughters from ambush annihilate Sentinels – only one survive.

4-1 on the scenario.

End of 3rd round :

Phoenix destroyed Sanctifier.
Archers and BE killed a lof of Daughters.
Pyrrhus is so annoying model now, he contest the flag and the zone.
One and only model who can try to kill him is Garryth.
He charged on Phyrrus.. miss.
Second attack, hits, but dealt only 2 dmg..uff..Pyrrhus survived!
No one came to contest my flag.

5-1 on the scenario.

At the end of my turn I’ll auto win by scenario.
But Pyrrhus want his revenge !
Thyra FEATed and cast Silence of Death on BoM.
Choir said Battle.
BoM charged at Phoenix, hits and side step to reach Garryth, leaving him on 4 hp.
Dervish destroyed Phoenix.
Now, it’s time to Pyrrhus revenge!
First spear attack on Garryth… miss.
Second spear attack… miss.
Third shield attack… hits!
I need “9” to kill and I have 3 dices (weapon master shield attack).
I rolled 1, 1 and 1 … not the best kind of revenge.

At the end of my turn, I won 7-1 by scenario.

End of the game :

A few words after game :

  • BE in Garryth list is too good to not take.
    Sentry makes him a solid shooting platform.
  • Garryth’s FEAT counters Thyra’s FEAT a little bit.
    It prohibits placing, but it’s really hard to use it well, with only 12 inches ctrl.
  • Probably I should start playing Thyra more offensive.
    In my games she just staying in safe places and losing her offensive potential.
    I’m so afraid about her dying, that’s why I’m playing her “too” safe.
