I’m going first.

Deployment :

Left Idrians prey on Stormblade Infantry.
Right Idrians prey on cavalry.

Reznik cast Death March on left Idrians.
Choir said Passage to Jacks.
Whole army ran into positions.

Storm Lances and Stormblades (with minifeat and Arcane Shield) ran forward.
Storm Tower shot at cavalry model and killed three of my Idrians – electro leaps..
On the left flank, Firefly did the same.
He shot at Stormblade model and killed 2/3 Idrians from electro leaps.
Stryker cast Lightning Storm, to prevent Idrians from charging at the most advanced cavalry model (pow 10 auto hit if you enter the AOE).
He also cast Deceleration.

End of 1st round :

Reznik cast Spellpiercer.
Idrians on the left, killed a lot of Stormblades from shooting.
Idrians on the right, killed two horses.
Deliverer Sunburst Crew shot in the direction of Storm Tower.
Perfect deviation killed Storm Tower and Stormsmith.
Vilmon advanced from Righteous Vengeance and charged at last cavalry model.. missed :(.
Mechanik ran b2b with the flag.

Cygnar began to kill as much as possible Idrians.
Few Stormblades charged at Sanctifier, but luckily they did not do much.
Rest of the army came to contest zones.
Stormblade Captain ran to the flag.

1-1 on the scenario.

End of 2nd round :

Reznik FEAT + Boundless Charge on himself.
He charged at Katherine, killed her, reposition back.
Sanctifier killed all the models surrounding him.
SoH charged at Firelfy and destroyed him.
He also killed Stormblade Captain.
On the right flank, I managed to clear the entire zone.
Mechanik stayed b2b with the flag.

4-1 on the scenario.

Ol’ Rowdy took care of Sanctifier.
Stryker used Overload.
He charged at SoH and destroyed him easily.
Gibbs used minifeat to heal Stryker.
Junior came to the flag to score a scenario point.
Unfortunately, no one was able to contest my flag.

5-3 on the scenario.

End of 3rd round :

All I need to win, is to get 3 scenario points.
In the current situation, it does not seem difficult.

Outline of the plan :

Mechanik will stay b2b with the flag – free scenario point.
Idrian need to kill Gibbs (his new prey target).
Reznik need to cast Boundless Charge on himself and kill Junior.
After that, he will reposition to be b2b with the flag.
Devout need to ran to the left zone to score a point.

Everything went according to plan and I won by scenario 8-3.

A few words after game :

  • Another 2x Idrian game and again problems with Cygnar.
  • I’m starting to dislike my list, it has too many problems.
    Unfortunately, I have to finish league with this list..
  • In the last round, if Idrian did not kill Gibbs, Reznik would charge and simply kill Stryker.
    As it is a league game, it’s better to win on the scenario than on CK.

  1. I am using something similar to this list but with Skyhammers rather than the 2nd Idrian Unit, 2x Punch Monks, 2x Paladins to go with Vilmon but no Mechaniks, 1x Wrack & no Sunburst team, all in all I have been enjoying it a lot but we don’t have any active Cygnar players in our Meta so may be a little easier without so much Electroleap around 😉

  2. Nice list too 😉
    Thanks for sharing it!

    Electroleaps hurts Idrians a lot 🙁
    Playing that list vs other faction than Cygnar would be cool for sure 😉 !
