I’m going first.

Deployment :

Thyra cast Occultation on right horses, Silence of Death on left horses and Gates of Death on herself.
Choir said Passage and whole army run forward.

Zaadesh cast Inviolable Resolve on BE, Battle-Charged and he put one cloud.
Drake killed one Flamebringer, BE killed another one and reposition back.

End of 1st round :

I start to measure few things and BoM after one side step can try to assassinate Zaadesh without fury.
I have to kill Aradus and engage Skorne beasts, so there was no counterattack.
Then Thyra will cast Carnage + Silence of Death on BoM and FEAT.

Here is the plan:

I manage to block the beasts and kill Aradus.
Thyra did her things and BoM charged at Sentry.
Zaadesh counterattack at BoM – it was a very good idea.
He had a good chance to did some serious dmg to BoM, due to flank with Sentry, and possibly destroyed some system.
Unfortunately, after Zaadesh’s hit, 0 dmg was dealt to BoM.
BoM did his job and killed Zaadesh without any problems.
I won by CK.

End of the game :

A few words after game :

  • I’m glad I found a way to CK attempt.
    Otherwise I would have to tire of too high ARM.
  • The Agonizers would be the worst here and I have no way of killing them.
    Their aura does Sentries arm 23 vs melee attacks.
    Zaadesh can cast Inviolable Resolve on one of them, what gives us 25 arm heavy beast to beat.
  • I finished tournament 2-1, again… but it’s great score I guess!
