Khador goes first.

Deployment :

Idrians prey on infantry with rockets.

Khador just run.
The infantry considered the redeemer’s range.

Kreoss casts Assail on EoT, Arcane Ward on Idrians and Ignite on Vengers.
Idrians mini feat and run.

End of 1st round :

Vlad casts Signs & Portents and FEAT + allocate entire focus to Jacks.
He’s standing without focus on the hill.
Rifle corps with Signs & Portents and CRA killed a lot of 19def Idrians.
Rest of army fired my cavalry, Jacks slam/run and engaged my models.

It doesn’t look good to me.
I have lost too many models and I don’t have too much power to destroy 4x 23arm Jacks.
There was nothing else but an attempt to assassinate Vlad.
The Vlad is without focus, but surrounded by a lot of sacpawn infantry.
In that case, the best option would be to upkeep Arcane Ward on Idrians.
They will try to survive free strikes from Devastator and shoot as many models near Vlad as possible.
They did well and killed 3 sacpawns models.
Time to Kreoss which casts Force Hammer at Winter Guard and slammed him into Vlad.
Vlad is knocked down and took 4 dmg.
The next Force Hammer clear more sacpawn models.
Kreoss casts FEAT but there was too short to cast Death Sentence at Vlad.
Only 3 shots from Redeemer left to kill Vlad.
Vlad is knocked down, but on the hill, so 7 def.
Redeemer needs “6” to hit.
First shot… hits but sacpawn (the last one..).
Second shot… missed and 0 dmg from blast deviation.
Third and last shot hits, but now i need boosted “13” to kill.
I didn’t roll it and I lost by CK in the next round.

End of the game :

A few words after game :

  • Unfortunately, I don’t know what to do with my Kreoss against heavy shooting army.
  • 4x Khador Jacks with 23 arm is really hard to deal with.
  • Vengers without charge sucks…

  1. Hey man, nice report.

    Don’t feel too bad about the loss. K3 struggles into shooting-heavy lists. That’s why he is often paired with Sevvy2 or Thyra in tournaments.

    Keep up the good work!

    1. Hi!
      Thanks a lot.
      I’m OK, this loss motivates me to play more and to change my list a bit.
      You are absolutely right, Kreoss3 doesn’t like to play vs shooting armies.
