Cygnar goes first.

Deployment :

Kraye cast Admonition on Thunderhead.
Junior cast Arcane Shield on right Centurion.
Light Jacks ran.
Heavy Jacks trampled forward + repo “5” also forward.

Cygnar was too close.
Even if I moved a bit, I would be in charge ranges.
Durst decided to came forward and cast Bulwark, Deceleration + FEAT.

End of 1st round :

My opponent lost a lot of time to come up with a plan of action.
He finally decided to withdraw his Jacks, while remaining in the zones.

Devout ran to contest Cygnar’s zone.
BE tried to destroy objective, but without success.
The rest of my army prepared for the Cygnar’s attack.

1-0 on the scenario.

End of 2nd round :

Kraye came to the left zone, cast Horsepower and FEAT.
He also killed Honor Guard.
Ironclad and Centurion destroyed Devout in the zone.
Sentinel shot at BE, giving longer charges against it, due to the FEAT.
Right Ironclad charged at BE and destroyed it.
After that, he reposition to contest my zone.

1-2 on the scenario.

My opponent finished the turn with 30 seconds on the clock.
I did not have to do too much, because this game was already won.
I just ran to contest the zones.
Castigators destroyed Ironclad in my zone.

2-2 on the scenario.

End of 3rd round :

Cygnar began quickly killing models, but soon the time was over.

I won the game by deathclock.

A few words after game :

  • We played this game to see how it would go.
    We would finish in the 7th round 8-11 on the scenario.
  • It is a very difficult match for Durst.
    I’m not going to play it again.
    In this game, the clock saved me.
  • Jacks under Kraye are simply too fast for Durst.
