I’m going first.

Deployment :

Idrians prey at Stormblade Infantry.

Durst cast Hallowed Avenger on left Templar + Bulwark on himself.
Idrians move a little bit forward.
Zealots ran to the hill.
Monk and Paladin hid behind the wall.

Maddox cast Snipe on Stormwall and Dauntless Resolve on Stormblades.
Stormblade Infantry ran/assault + mini feat.
Stormwall put 2x Covering Fire + Pod.
Firefly shot at the Pod and killed two Idrians – Electro Leaps.

End of 1st round :

Durst cast Boundless Charge on Paladin + FEAT.
Zealots and Idrians killed as many Stormblade Infantry as possible.
Left Sanctifier charged at Pod, to reach cavalry model behind the cloud and killed it.
Paladin charged and killed another cavalry model.

Maddox cast Assail on Stormwall + FEAT.
Colossus charged at Sanctifier and destroyed him.
On the right flank, two horses charged at my Jacks – without serious dmg.
On the left flank, I lost Vilmon and almost whole Idrians unit.
Katherine ran to the flag to score a point.
Junior cast Arcane Shield on Stormwall.

0-1 on the scenario.

End of 2nd round :

Sanctifier + Monk cleared the right zone.
Durst came there to score a point.
2x fully loaded Templars, with Hand of Vengeance activated, left Stormwall on 2/3 boxes 🙁
The problem is, that I have nothing to finish the Colossus..
Only Zealots have not activated yet.
They said Fervor and few bombs pow 14 finished the Stormwall!
Getting rid of the Colossus was crucial this turn.

1-1 on the scenario.

Squire ran to contest the right zone.
My opponent tried to clear the left zone, but without success.

Still 1-1 on the scenario.

End of 3rd round :

Sanctifier took care of Squire.
Monk came b2b with my flag.
Durst stayed in the zone.
Templar destroyed Firefly.
Another Templar killed Katherine’s horse.

3-1 on the scenario.

My opponent does not have any models to contest the right zone.
Maddox decided to charge at Sanctifier, destroy him and score a point in the right zone.
Plan was perfect, but unfortunately Sanctifier survived at 10/11 boxes.

5-1 on the scenario.

In the next turn, I automatically won the game on scenario.

End of the game :

A few words after game :

  • FM theme is must have for Durst.
    +2/+2 on heavies it’s too good not to take it.
  • The destruction of the Stormwall ended the game.
    Without him, Cygnar could not threaten my Jacks.
  • Durst likes to cast Boundless Charge/Deceleration as often as possible.
    That’s why Sanctifiers are great here.
    “Free” focuses are very helpful.
