Circle was lead by Paweł Blados.
Warmachine Europe Champion 2017 and the best Polish player.

I’m going first.

Note :
Wold Wights were proxed by Woldwyrds.

Deployment :

Elias Gade prey on Sentry Stone.
Vindictus cast Def Ward on left Errants and Penitence on right Errants.
Whole army ran forward.

Tanith tried to cast Affliction on Def Ward Errants.
Fortunately for me, she did not hit, so Mannikins did not kill as many models as Paweł wanted.

End of 1st round :

Vindictus FEAT.
Templar stayed in the right zone.
Gravus stayed b2b with the left flag.
Right Errants ran to contest the flag.
Left Errants ran to contest Circle zone.

Paweł did everything what was possible to clear the left zone and right flag from Errants.
Unfortunately, he did not succeed.
Loki pulled Indictor and started hitting, but without big success.
I managed to get 2 points in the opponent’s turn (Gravus and Templar).

2-0 on the scenario.

End of 2nd round :

Indictor took his revenge and killed Loki.
Errants and Knights on the right killed two Wold Wights.
Elias Gade ran closer to right flag.
Gravus and Templar stayed in their places.

4-0 on the scenario.

Megalith destroyed Indictor.
Mannikins and Tanith cleared left zone.
Woldwarden killed Errant contesting the flag (Geomancy).
Blacklad ran to the right flag to score a point.
There was no possibility to contest my right zone.

5-2 on the scenario.

All I have to do now is get 2 points.
Errants shot Blacklad.
Elias Gade ran to the right flag – 1st point.
Templar stayed in the zone – 2nd point.
One Errant ran to contest left zone.

I won the game 7-2 on scenario.

End of the game :

A few words after game :

  • Gravus is great in this list.
    At the beginning, I was not convinced of him.
    He costs the same points as Knights Exemplar unit!
  • I really like the possibility of scoring in the opponent turn.
    With such a FEAT, it is very possible.
  • Also, Errants Self-Sacrifice helps a lot in scenario playing.
    I can not imagine the list without them!
