I’m going first.

Deployment :

Durst casts Bulwark, Deceleration and he charges forward.
Rest of army cleverly runs forward.

Cygnar slowly goes to my forces.
Light Jacks fired 3 flamebringers.

End of 1st round :

Anson casts FEAT, Deceleration and Boundless Charge at 1 flamebringer on my left.
Flamebringers destroyed two Hunters.
Doughters from ambush killed Arlan and few Gun Mages.

Cyclone took care of Doughters.
He walked smartly through my FEAT…
Gun Mages just pushed my Jacks away from my models.
Now Caine FEATs and killed few Flamebringers.

2-1 on the scenario.

End of 2nd round :

I started to kill everything what is possible.
I place two Crusaders into Cygnar zone.
On the right flank, Crusader fully loaded with focus and with Boundless Charge couldn’t kill Sentinel 🙁

Cyclone fired few models.
Caine can’t kill Flamebringer in rubble.
He waste a lot of shots and focus – unfortunately not the best rolls.
Gun Mage Captain run to contest left zone.

5-2 on the scenario.

End of 3rd round :

I need 2 more scenario points to win.
Nicia charges on Captain back.
First attack, roll to hit.. 1,1 on dices.
That’s no problem, second attack, roll to hit.. 1,1 on dices.
Good that she is for free from theme.
I can’t imagine what it would be like, to pay 5 pts for that 2x double ones roll.
Dervish did his job and killed Captain.
Crusaders destroyed objective, Devout scores in my zone.

I won by scenario 8-2.

End of the game :

A few words after game :

  • I had some doubts before the game.
    That Cygnar list contains everything with magical shooting.
    A lot of pushes from Gun Mages.
    Deadeye spell casted on Gun Mages could hurt my cavalry.
  • But the game goes really good.
    It would be perfect if I had better set the models under Durst’s FEAT.
  • Maybe change Devout for Vigiliant in this list?
    19 def Anson sounds good…
    I need to check it in the future.
