A few words before the game :

This time we get Norway Hugin.
Take a look how we evaluated our chances :

Our Cygnar played vs Cryx/Deneghra1 – 35% to win.
Our Cryx played vs Skorne/Xerxis2 – 65% to win.
Our Circle played vs Cryx/The Witch Coven – 65% to win.
Our Grymkin played vs Legion/Absylonia2 – 35% to win.
I played vs Cygnar/Haley2 – 35% to win.

According to our calculations, we will probably lose this round 2-3.
Let’s see!

Lists of my opponent :

Cygnar was lead by Jarle Svendsrud.
Probably the best Cygnar player in the world.
I rate this paring at 35% MAX and it’s only if I start.

My list :

Protectorate Army – 75 / 75 points
[Theme] Guardians of the Temple

(Thyra 1) Thyra, Flame of Sorrow [+29]
– Blood of Martyrs [16]
– Dervish [7]
– Sanctifier [14]
Nicia, Tear of Vengeance [0(5)]
Pyrrhus, Flameguard Hero [0(5)]
Vassal Mechanik [1]
Wrack [1]
Choir of Menoth (min) [4]
Daughters of the Flame [10]
Daughters of the Flame [10]
Flame Bringers (max) [17]
Flame Bringers (max) [17]
Temple Flameguard (min) [7]
– Temple Flameguard Officer & Standard [0(4)]

Jarle won the first roll and he decided to go first.

Deployment :

Haley2 cast Telekinesis on BE and Thorn.
She also cast Temporal Acceleration on Stormwall.
Jakes cast Energizer.
Arcane Shield was casted on Stormwall.
Whole army ran as fast as possible.

I’m left with nothing else than in the previous game with Cygnar.
I need to wisely ran forward, set Thyra safely and wait for the next turn.

End of 1st round :

Jarle killed as many models as possible.
Haley2 FEAT.

It’s not the best.
I lost more models than I thought.
I am forced to go to Plan B.
Two units of Daughters and Nicia ran to Cygnar’s back.
Thyra ran to safe place.

End of 2nd round :

Cygnar must withdraw several things to clear some Daughters.
Jarle did it and he killed every single Daughters..
Stormwall destroyed Sanctifier.

I’ll probably lose in the next turn, so I want to try to kill as much as possible.
Thyra and BoM charged at Stormwall but colossus left on few dmg boxes.
Pyrrhus and Temple Guard boss charged at objective, but it left on 1 hp 🙁
Dervish start to hitting Thorn but without much success.

End of 3rd round :

As I predicted, in the next Cygnar’s turn I lost by CK.

The rest of my team :

4-1 to Norway Hugin.

It went worse than we had assumed at the beginning.

A few words after game :

  • It was a very good match for Haley.
    She coped with a huge number of infantry, than FEAT.
  • Jarle has played 300+ games by Haley2.
    He is a very difficult opponent.
  • Jarle, playing with you is always a pleasure.
    I’m waiting for the revenge!
