Khador goes first.

Deployment :

Round 1:

Whole army just ran forward.
Everything end their activations outside my arc nodes ranges.

Choir said Passage.
Whole army ran, Jacks end their activations with 1 focus point on them (oracular vision).

Round 2:

Winter Guards came to the zones.
Vladimir cast Windwall and he came to the flag.
Two Jacks are contesting my flag and they are outside my Jacks charge ranges.

I do not have any model to contest the Vlad’s flag.
Whatever goes into the right zone, will die in the next turn.
I have no chance of getting a point in my turn 🙁
It means that sooner or later I will lose at the scenario.
So, I decided to contest left zone – Dervish and Guardian ran there.
Vassal ran to contest right zone.
BoV ran forward and stayed 10 inches from Vladimir.
Severius FEAT – killed few Rockeeters.
He also cast Awareness, than he cast 2x fully boosted Hex Blast at Vladimir (through BoV).
All hit, but I rolled terrible for dmg.. so Vladimir took only few dmg boxes.

0-1 on the scenario.

Round 3:

Vladimir withdrew behind the wall.
Two Jacks destroyed my BoV.
Tomas killed Vassal in the right zone.
Infantry and BE shot at my support and killed a lot of my models.

0-3 on the scenario.

I only have this turn.
After that, I’ll auto lose by scenario.
Guardian ran and stayed 10 inches from Vladimir.
Severius decided to cast 2x fully boosted Hex Blast at Vladimir – again.
All hit, but again, terrible rolls for dmg.
After this, I submit the game.
I’ll automatically lose by scenario 0-5.

So, I lost my game.
Our Grymkin lost his game too.
But, our Circle and Cygnar won their games!

We now have 2-2.

Everything depends on our Cryx match vs Czech’s Skorne.
After a fierce battle to the very end, our Cryx won!
He gave us a VICTORY :

3-2 to Poland Knights!
