Cryx goes first.

Deployment :

Elias Gade prey at Nyss Hunters.

Asphyxious cast Mobility and Ashen Veil on himself.
DJ, Leviathan, Deathripper and Nyss Hunters ran to the forest.
Slayer stayed near Asphyxious.

Vindictus cast Admonition on himself + FEAT.
Few Errants ran to engage models in the forest.
Rest of my army stayed in safe positions.
Elias Gade shot and killed two Nyss Hunters.

End of 1st round :

Leviathan trampled to right zone, he also killed few models.
DJ and Nyss Hunters killed as many models as possible.
Slayer came a little bit forward.

My turn was almost perfect.
I managed to smash Leviathan, Slayer and Deathripper.
DJ survived the Crusader’s attack and several Knights.
Elias came to the flag to score a point.

2-0 on the scenario.

End of 2nd round :

I’ve already won the game.
The only thing left to my opponent, is CK attempt.
What would it look like?

Firstly, DJ must throw the Crusader in Vindictus direction.
Secondly, Asphyxious need to cast Mobility.
Vociferon will cast Hex Blast at Vindictus.
Lastly, Nyss Hunters need to kill my Caster from shooting.

Outline of the plan :

This plan has a very small chance of success, because Vindictus camps 2/3 Focus.
It’s always better to have a plan like this, than to lose the game automatically in the next turn.

Everything went according to plan, but as I thought, Vindictus survived.
After a failed assassination attempt, I won the game 5-0 on the scenario.

End of the game :

A few words after game :

  • Devout was invaluable in this game.
    Because of him, Vindictus felt extra safe.
    I think this Jack is a “must have” here.
  • Asphyxious3 is a difficult opponent.
    Mobility, Unyelding…
    It can spoil the day.
