I’m going first.

Unfortunately, the zones are transparent, so it is very difficult to notice where they are.
In the first picture, I marked them.

Deployment :

Reznik cast Ignite on SoH.
Jacks ran forward as fast as possible.

Nemo cast Magnetic Field.
He also cast Electrify and Lightning Shroud on his Jacks.
Junior cast Arcane Shield on BE.
Nemo stayed in safe position, but his army ran sharply forward.

End of 1st round :

Reznik cast Brand of Heresy on BE (through Revenger).
Redeemers took care of BE and stayed outside of cavalry charge ranges.
Choir said Passage.
Anastasia (from Ambush) charged at Storm Tower and killed grunt.

Thunderhead’s “auto hit” killed Anastasia.
Cavalry charged and destroyed Revenger in the right zone.

End of 2nd round :

Revenger ran to the middle zone.
Reznik cast Brand of Heresy on cavalry (through Revenger).
Redeemers took care of whole cavalry unit.
Visgoth and company ran to the right zone for a point.

2-0 on the scenario.

Nemo FEAT.
Dynamo destroyed Revenger from shooting.
Firefly came to the middle zone for a point.
He also shot at Redeemer, but he did not do much.
Katherine tried to shot at Visgoth, but she missed.

2-1 on the scenario.

End of 3rd round :

Visgoth and company charged and killed Stormblade Captain.
They also deprived Katherine of her horse.
One of Redeemers ran in front of Thunderhead – only to disturb him in the upcoming turn.
Another one ran and stayed in the right and middle zone.
Rest of the Redeemers did few dmg to Firefly and killed Storm Tower.
SoH charged and killed Dynamo.
Reznik ran towards the right zone.

Katherine took revenge for her horse and she killed two Honor Guard.
Firefly charged at right Redeemer, but he did not do much.
Nemo needs to cast Force Hammer on Redeemer – that one blocking Thunderhead’s way to SoH.
He hits Redeemer with a spell, so I was able to move SoH a little bit from Reznik’s Witch Hound special rule.
Everything that Nemo needs now, is to roll “3+” at the slam distance.
Unfortunately, he roll “1” and the Redeemer still blocks the way to SoH.
Thunderhead destroyed that hapless Redeemer.

End of 4th round :

Visgoth killed Katherine.
Redeemer on the right took care of Firefly.
SoH started to hit at Thunderhead, but he did nothing at all!
He was not even able to “turn off” one system.

3-1 on the scenario.

My opponent has less than two minutes on the clock.
He only managed to destroy SoH.

I won the game by death clock.

End of the game :

A few words after game :

  • I am glad that my list worked.
    I build it as a counter against Cygnar.
  • Unfortunately, nowadays, where the Haley3 and Gravedidder theme is in fashion, it’s pointless to take a Reznik as a Cygnar counter.
  • My list had a big problem on the scenario play.
    Redeemers prefer to aim and they are unable to enter the zones.
  • Brand of Heresy + blessed Redeemer’s shots… it is something wonderful!
    Cygnar’s BE with Arcane Shield, destroyed in a single turn.
  • In conclusion, it was a very nice game, but I do not recommend this caster.
    There are many more – better ones 🙂
