Khador goes first.

Deployment :

Old Witch casted Avatar of Slaughter on Scrapjack and Iron Flesh on herself.
She also cast Murder of Crows b2b with the forest.
The rest of the army ran forward.

The Creator’s Might theme allow to start the game with upkeeps in play.
I chose Fortify for Templar and Synergy for Amon.
Amon cast Mobility.
Jacks ran and end their activations outside of enemy Jacks threat ranges.
Choir said Shielding and reposition behind Jacks.

End of 1st round :

Kodiaks and Old Witch put some clouds to block my LoS.
Yuri and Manhunter charged at Crusader and they did some serious dmg to him.
Eliminatros killed two Choir models (after side steps).
Scrapjack just ran away outside of my ranges.

Amon FEAT + Mobility.
I started hitting/killing things on the right side, to gave other Jacks full Synergy bonus.
Choir said Battle.
Templar came and destroyed Kodiak.
Two Crusaders trampled and destroyed Juggernaut.
They could not charge because the Old Witch’s cloud blocked ther LoS to Jacks.

End of 2nd round :

My opponent said, he want to try CK.
How does it have to look?
Juggernaut need to destroy Dervish.
Scrapjack need to ran as fast as possible to the wall.
Old Witch need to cast Avatar of Slaughter on herself and Unseen Path to reach Amon.

Outline of the plan :

Everything went according to plan.
Now, Old With has two initial attacks and 3 focus.
My opponent decided to made 5x NOTboosted attacks, which needs “8” to hit.
Old Witch hit 4 of them!
Fortunately for me, rolls on dmg were not as good as rolls for hit.
Amon survived on 1hp!

In the next turn, Amon just killed Old Witch.

I won by CK.

A few words after game :

  • I knew, that I would be within range of CK.
    But after calculating, I felt more than safe.
  • That CK attempt had 29% for success.
    To be honest, I should set devout in this position :

Old Witch could not come to me and I would be 100% safe.

  • Heavy Jacks Amon list are sooo cool!
    POW 23 MAT 9 Crusaders looks solid…
  • I’m thinking all the time about Amon list in Exemplar theme…

  1. Jack heavy lists without exemplar in Exemplar theme are solid!
    I’ve played it with Sevy1 and Durst. Blessed and 2″ extra deployment are well worth giving up the free solos for. Try it, I’d love to read your reports of them.

  2. That +2 deployment is so good – you are right.
    I tried Durst too in exe theme, maybe it’s time to Amon now 🙂

    Thanks for kind words!
