Cryx was lead by Konrad Sosnowski.
One of the best Cryx players in the world.
And one of the best Warmachine players in Poland.

I’m going first.

Note :
One cavalry unit and Darragh was proxed!

Deployment :

Elias Gade prey at right cavalry.

Vindictus cast Penitence on left Errants and Def Ward on right Errants.
Choir said Passage.

Cryx ran forward, above my charge ranges.
Kraken came forward and kill two Errants from shooting.

End of 1st round :

Errants on the left killed only one Soulhunter from shooting.
Errants on the right did the same + they shot few Carrion Thralls.
Vindictus FEAT.

Skarre FEAT.
She chose whole left cavalry, Kraken, Darragh Wrathe and of course herself.
She also cast Dark Guidance.
Both Soulhunters units + Kraken killed a lot of my Errants.
Carrion Thralls and Mechanithralls (from Ambush) tried to do the same, but Def Ward blocked them.
Scrap Thrall ran to the flag.

0-1 on the scenario.

End of 2nd round :

On the right flank, I killed as many models as possible.
Gravus stayed b2b with the flag.
On the left flank, I cleared almost whole zone.
Only one Soulhunter left.
Two Knights charged him with minifeat, but unfortunately they screwed up.

1-1 on the scenario.

Konrad managed to clear the right zone.
I lost few models on the left flank.
Soulhunter stayed in the same place – in the zone and behind the wall.

1-2 on the scenario.

End of 3rd round :

To be honest, the only chance to win this game, is to get 2 scenario points now.
It does not look difficult.
All I have to do, is get rid of that annoying Soulhunter in the zone and behind the wall.
Crusader easily destroyed objective, so 1 scenario point for me.
Unfortunately,the rest of my models could not kill Soulhunter.

2-2 on the scenario.

Kraken and company destroyed objective and Crusader.
They also took care of Gravus.

2-4 on the scenario.

In a nutshell, at some point, I did not have models to contest the right zone anymore.
As I predicted, I lost this game on the scenario, few rounds later.

A few words after game :

  • It was a very good game.
    Some unhappiness with that Soulhunter, made the game easier for Konrad.
  • In my 2nd turn, I should focus more on killing cavalry.
    I split the shots between cavalry and Carrion Thralls.
    It was a mistake.
  • Darragh’s ability + Skarre FEAT made her army almost unkillable by living models.
    It bothered me a lot during the game.
