I’m going first.

Deployment :

Thyra cast Silence of Death on left horses, Occultation on right horses and Gates of Death on herself.

Khador put some clouds.
Scouts killed few Temple Guards.
Avatar of Slaughter was casted on Scrapjack.
Weald Secrets was casted on Behemoth.

End of 1st round :

Thyra FEAT.
Flamebringers on the left almost destroyed Kodiak – he left on 2 boxes 🙁
Flamebringers on the right and Daughters from ambush took care of Widowmakers and Risens.
Unfortunately, I was not able to kill Alexia.
Choir said Passage – and it was a mistake..

Ternions sprays massacred Daughters.
BoM was pushed by Gallows and Behemoth + Juggernaut destroyed him.
Alexia put some Risens to play.
Old Witch FEAT.

End of 2nd round :

I destroyed objective.
Dervish came to the left zone to score a point.
Nicia shot and killed one Ternion.
Sanctifier with Silence of Death and Battle from Choir destroyed Behemoth.
Rest of the army can not do much due to Old Witch FEAT.

2-0 on the scenario.

Orin killed one Daughter and one Flamebringer.
Dervish was pushed by Gallows, Scrapjack charged him, but he did only few dmg.
Juggernaut destroyed all possible Sanctifier’s systems, but he did not destroy him!
Ternions tried to sprayed Nicia, but good for her, they missed their attacks.
Risens killed Flamebringer lider, so one horse is out of cmd now.

End of 3rd round :

The only one alived Daughter killed Orin.
Flamebringers on the left finished Kodiak.
Dervish with a little help from Flamebringer, took care of Scrapjack.
Pyrrhus killed Alexia.
Choir came to the middle zone to score a point.
Nicia charged and killed two Ternions + sprint to engage Sylys.
Thyra ran + teleport to the left zone.

4-0 on the scenario.

Sylys wanted to ran to contest middle zone, but Nicia killed him with free strike.
Juggernaut destroyed objective and that’s all.
Risens tried to kill Pyrrhus, but they failed.
Khador did not have enough models to contest my zones.

I won the game by scenario 6-1.

End of the game :

A few words after game :

  • Old Witch feat is an exaggeration vs infantry lists!
  • I don’t know why Old Witch is so unpopular.
    She has options for ck, very good feat, apparition on Jacks.
    If I could play Khador, then I would play Old Witch.
  • This is the last report before Belgium WTC 2017!
    I will try to describe the games from WTC as soon as possible.

  1. I completely agree with you about the Old Witch as well, she is awesome although I think I would run some more Jacks to take advantage of the free speed boost from Apparition 🙂

    1. You’re right, more jacks led by Old Witch would be better for sure.
      Game #45 will be against Old Witch and 6 heavies!
      I hope you will like it 🙂

      1. That sounds awesome, yeah the more I look at it the more I think she can get some serious work done with Juggernauts and Kodiaks combining a speed boost with cheap hard hitters is never a bad thing 🙂

        1. You are totally right.
          FEAT protects Jacks against spams of weapon master infantry.
          Old Witch1 looks really cool now 😉
