FM Vindictus was lead by Tomasz Tutaj – one of the best Polish players.
And definitely one of the best PoM players in the world.

I’m going first.

Deployment :

Elias Gade prey at left Idrians.
Idrians prey at Errants.

Vindictus cast True Path, Penitence on right Errants + FEAT.
Whole army ran forward.
Choir said Passage.

Enemy Vindictus cast Penitence on right Idrians, Def Ward on Templar + FEAT.
Both units of Idrians came a little bit forward + mini feat.

End of 1st round :

Errants have no chances with the Idrians.
I have measured a few things and CK attempt seems to be the best idea.

Outline of the plan :

Vindictus cast True Path and he retreated to a safe place.
First of all, Knights needs to kill my disturbing models.
They did it easily.
Gravus took souls.

1. Devout ran and stayed 8 inches from Exemplar Seneschal and 4 inches from enemy Vindictus.
2. Exemplar Seneschal went to Devout and he began to hit him.
He hit Devout three times and slammed him towards enemy Vindictus.
All I needed, was to roll “4” at slam distance.
Unfortunately, I rolled less.
3. Elias Gade and a lot of Errants shot at enemy Vindictus.
They managed to deal few dmg.

Gravus charged at Templar.
He spent the rest of his attacks on a Vindictus – who survived on few hp.

Templar took care of Gravus.
Idrians killed as many Errants as possible.
Hierophant heals Vindictus a little.
Vindictus spend few FOCUS to heal himself and he ran behind the forest.
Avatar score a point in the left zone.

0-1 on the scenario.

End of 2nd round :

The situation is tragic.
But..
I see another attempt to try CK!

Outline of the plan :

Vindictus cast True Path.

1. Elias Gade shot two disturbing Idrians.
2. Knights Exemplar Officer said mini feat.
Two Knights charged at Idrians in the forest.
After killing them, Knights reached Vindictus (Cleave + Overtake) and finally killed him!

I won the game by CK.

End of the game :

A few words after game :

  • Idrians > Errants, if they fight against each other.
  • From the perspective of time, it seems to me that I should go second.
    I could try to play on the scenario.
  • Fortunately, I managed to kill the enemy Vindictus in “installments”.
    If the second attempt of CK was unsuccessful, I would submit the game.
