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

Circle goes first.

Unfortunately, the zones are transparent, so it is very difficult to notice where they are.
In the first picture, I marked them.

Deployment :

Elias Gade prey at left Mannikins.

Circle army just ran as far as possible.
Two Woldwyrds hide behind the wall, created by Baldur.

Rhupert gave Tough to left Errants.
Vindictus cast True Path.
Unfortunately, in this match he could not cast anything more (Woldwyrds have extra dices against targets with upkeeps).
Left Errants and Elias shot three Mannikins.
That’s all..

End of 1st round :

Woldwyrds shot a lot of my models.
Few models stayed in the zones to contest.
Baldur put a wall + FEAT.

On the right side, Knights and Dervish destroyed one Woldwyrd.
On the left side, Errants dealt few dmg to Woldwyrds.
Wrack score a point on my flag.

1-0 on the scenario.

End of 2nd round :

Paweł cleared the left flag.
Blacklad ran b2b with the flag to score a point.
Stoneshaper ran to contest my flag.
Rest of the army killed what was possible to kill.

1-1 on the scenario.

Errants shot two Stoneshapers.
On the left flank, one wounded Woldwyrd survived 🙁
He is contesting the zone and the flag.
If I could destroy him, I would get three scenario points this turn.
Otherwise, only Wrack score a point.

2-1 on the scenario.

End of 3rd round :

Unfortunately, this surviving Woldwyrd lost my game.
A few rounds later, I do not have any models to contest the right zone.

I lost the game on scenario.

End of the game :

A few words after game :

  • It was a very bad match for Vindictus.
    Too much magical shooting per turn.
  • It seems to me, that I should play more aggressively.
    Errants should ran as far as possible, then Knights could charge at Woldwyrds in my next turn.
  • If only I could kill that contesting Woldwyrd in the third round, the game could end up in my favor.
  • So, another tournament won by Paweł.
    It’s already boring …
