I’m going first.

Deployment :

Vindictus cast True Path + Penitence on left Errants.
Whole army advanced slowly forward.

Issyria cast Blinding Light on right Errants.
Strike Force killed few Errants from shooting.
Whole Retribution army stayed outside my ranges.

End of 1st round :

Vindictus FEAT – that’s all.

Nayl ran to contest my zone.
Hemera scores a point.
Rest of the Retribution army stayed outside my ranges.

0-1 on the scenario.

End of 2nd round :

Templar get pathfinder from objective.
Choir said Battle.
Templar trample forward and he destroyed the enemy objective.
Sanctifier threw Nayl away and killed him.
Rest of my army clears zones.

3-1 on the scenario.

Issyria FEAT.
Hemera shot at Errants, without critical hit, uff.. she could dispel Penitence.
Spears and Strike Force clears all left zone.
Sanctifier survived on few dmg boxes – lucky guy.
Strike Force on the left shot few Errants and than died from Penitence.

4-2 on the scenario.

End of 3rd round :

I need 3 scenario point to win.
In this situation, it does not seem to be so difficult.

Outline of the plan :

Firsty, BE charged at Infiltrator and used Eruption of Faith, to auto kill two elves and push Hemera outside the zone.
Sanctifier came and threw Assassin into another elf and killed both.
Templar killed Strike Force model and pushed Chimera outside the zone (beat back).
Choir lider ran to contest the right zone.
Errants or Knights score a point in the left zone.
Vindictus score a point in my zone.

I won the game by scenario 7-2.

A few words after game :

  • It seems to me, that I should make my first turn more aggressively.
    Vindictus probably should FEAT in the first round.
    Then whole army just ran at maximum distance.
  • I made one mistake in this game.
    Choir said Battle to Jacks, then Templar trampled and destroyed objective.
    Choir should said Passage instead.
    BE could 2x shot at objective to destroy it after two Templar’s hits.
    Sanctifier would be more safe.
