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 :

Idrians prey at Molik and Venator unit.

Reznik cast Death March on right Idrians.
Whole army ran forward.

Makeda cast Quicken on Molik.
Willbreaker gave tough to Venators.
Molik and Master Tormentor ran to the forest.

End of 1st round :

I withdrew Reznik more than 15 inches from Molik.
Idrians killed almost whole Venator unit.
I started to shot at Beast Handlers, but two of them survived.
Idrians repo, to block the opponent’s moves.
SoH ran to the right zone.

My opponent measured a few things and said he would try CK.
I’m a bit surprised.
Reznik stand over 15 inches from Molik.
He has focus on every Molik’s potential attack and he is close to Sanctifier (Ashen Veil).
We’ll see.
Gladiator cast Rush on Molik.
Makeda came forward, cast Carnage and she killed few disturbing models.
She also cast Lash on my Idrian and after hit, Molik came two inches towards Reznik.
Beast Handler came b2b with Molik to gave him free charge and +2 STR.
Finally, it’s time for a Molik, who just charged at Reznik.
He did not hit the first attack, “6” needed to hit – Ashen Veil.
Successive rolls were too good and the Reznik died.

I lost by CK.

End of the game :

A few words after game :

  • Molik had about 40% to kill the Reznik.
    After missing first attack, the odds dropped to 28%.
    Unfortunately, it was enough.
  • Lesson for the future?
    Keep caster 17 inches from Molik – not 15!
    And under no circumstances give him options for side steps.
    Then the range of CK is 21 inches .. a real nightmare.
  • I hope for rematch!
