VS

Cryx Army – 75 / 75 points

(Asphyxious 3) Asphyxious the Hellbringer [+24]
– Kraken [36]
– Kraken [36]
Machine Wraith [2]
Necrotech [2]
Ragman [4]
Satyxis Raiders (max) [16]
– Satyxis Raider Sea Witch [3]

Cryx is lead by Konrad Sosnowski.
One of the best Cryx players in the world.
And one of the best Warmachine players in Poland.

He won the roll and took 1st turn.

Deployment :

Asphyxious casts mobility and Ashen Veil on Satyxis.
Everything just run.

Temple Guards going forward too with mini FEATs.
Kreoss casts Assail on FoS, Arcane Ward on “red” Temple Guards unit and Ignite on Crusader.
Choir said “You can’t shoot to our Jacks with non-magical shooting!”.

End of 1st round :

Krakens fired a lot of my Temple Guards.
Satyxis are waiting for their moment.

Doughters came out from ambush.
Kreoss casts FEAT to dispel Ashen Veil from Satyxis and reposition back, to be out of enemy ranges.
Flameguards charges everywhere and killed few Satyxis.
FoS is standing in the zone and scores.

End of 2nd round :

Krakens start to fight in melee.
4 inches reach and kill shots wipe out my Temple Guards.
Satyxis are fighting with doughters and “red” Guards.
Nobody came to my right zone, so I achive second scenario point.

I killed few more Satyxis.
Crusader and Dervish (with Battle from Choir) charged Kraken and deals some dmg.
FoS still stands in the right zone.

3-1 on the scenario.

End of 3rd round :

Konrad killed my Jacks with easy.
Ragman and 3 corpses on Krakens is like +5 to dmg … too much.

I’m killing what is possible to kill and still taking points in my right zone.

5-2 on the scenario.

End of 4th round :

Cryx kills what is left of my army and taking scenario points.

Kreoss run away from Kraken.
Reast of my models try to contest zones.

7-4 on the scenario.

End of 5th round :

Konrad easily clears zones from my contesting models and he scores few scenario points.

Kreoss casts Crevasse to kill Machine Wraith and reposition to the flag.
FoS is still standing and scoring my zone.

10-7 on the scenario.

End of 6th round :

Cryx killed every single model (only Kreoss and FoS left).
Kraken came to contest flag and my zone at the same time.

Now I’m in trouble.
If I don’t destroy the contesting Kraken, I will lose on the scenario by 1 point at the end of my last turn.
Unfortunately Kreoss and FoS with Ignite wasn’t enough to destroy Kraken.

I lost by scenario 10-11.

A few words after game :

  • My list wasn’t the best against Konrad’s list.
    I didn’t have too much power to kills Krakens with unyelding.
  • Temple Guards were “free” souls and corpses for Cryx.
  • Probably my list could work better with Feora3 or other caster than Kreoss3.
