Skorne was lead by Kamil – best Poland Skorne player in 2016/2017 season.

I won the roll and I’m going first.

Deployment :

Vindictus cast True Path and Def Ward on Errants.
Whole army ran forward.

Skorne goes slowly forward, he want to be out of my ranges.
Mammoth shoot at two Vengers and killed them.
Rasheth channel Breath of Corruption through Void Spirit to kill some models and block my movements.

End of 1st round :

Errants killed Void Spirit from shooting.
Reckoners with battle from Choir, left Animatrax on 10 hp.
Vindictus FEATed.

Animatrax shoot at Reckoner and almost destroyed him.
Mammoth shoot at another Reckoner and did the same …
I regretted that Battle from Choir.
I should use Passage on Reckoners.
Rasheth casts FEAT.
Krea paralyzes Gravus.

End of 2nd round :

I killed Animatrax, Krea and Objective.
Few models charged Mammoth but 24 arm is too much.. (Rasheth FEAT + Agonizer aura).

Kamil killed what was possible to kill.
Mammoth came to the zone.

End of 3rd round :

I’m doing everything to kill that fat beast – Mammoth.
He lost only 22-25 wounds.

Gladiator frenzies into Gravus and took him off from his horse.
Rasheth casts Carnivore on Mammoth.
Fat beast did sweep power atack and wipe out a lot of my models.
Paingivers heals Mammoth 5d3, so he is almost at full health..eh..

End of 4th round :

I killed Gladiator and few Paingivers.
Vindictus run to the flag.
The rest of the models are positioned, so that the Mammoth can’t contest the flag.

4-0 on the scenario.

Kamil killed almost all my models.
Only Vindictus and half of the choir left.
He contested the flag only by Feralgeist.

So, in my next turn, I must kill Feralgeist in the forest and end my turn b2b with the flag.
Immolation is the only way to do it.
Vindictus casted it, boosted to hit (he needed “10”) and hits.
Feralgeist died and I won by scenario 5-0.

A few words after game :

  • It was very difficult to reach the Mammoth, going through Rasheth’s AOE.
    Even if I finally came to him, his 22/24 arm was too much.
    If you don’t kill the Mammoth in single turn, Paingivers will probably heal him 6d3.
  • The only thing I could do better, was giving Passage to Jacks instead of Battle.
  • I should play Vengers more “flanking” I guess.
    After 2 rounds I could be behind Skorne forces and threaten support models.
