I’m going first.

Deployment :

Durst cast Hallowed Avenger on Sanctifier and Bulwark on himself.
Choir said Passage.

Ossrum cast Bullet Dodger on himself, Snipe on Hammerfalls + Energizer.
Rest of the army just ran forward.

End of 1st round :

Sanctifier ran to the left zone.
Dervish stayed b2b with the Sanctifier.
Vassal came to the left flag.
Zealots ran as far as possible.
Few of them stayed behind the Sanctifier, to prevent pushing him outside of the zone (Bulldoze).
On the right flank, Dervish ran to contest the flag.
Templar stayed b2b with the Dervish.
Durst came behind the wall + FEAT.

Ossrum also activated FEAT.
Driller and Basher charged at Sanctifier and Dervish, but without much success.
Hammerfalls and “chickens” killed as many Zealots as possible.
On the right flank, Rockram tried to destroy the contesting Dervish.
Unfortunately, def 15 was too much for him.
One Gunner ran to contest the right zone.

1-0 on the scenario. (Vassal scored on the left flag)

End of 2nd round :

Anastasia, (from Ambush) threw knives at Thor, but unfortunately she did not kill him.
Monolith Bearer used mini feat.
“New” Zealots charged at “chickens”.
Sanctifier, Templar and Dervish destroyed the Basher and left Driller on few boxes.
On the right flank, Templar tried to destroy the Rockram, but without success.
Dervish killed two Forge Guards.
Vassal stayed b2b with the flag to score a point.

2-0 on the scenario.

Left “chickens” killed Zealots near them.
Reinholdt remove Stealth from Anastasia and Ossrum shot her 🙁
Hammerfalls Officer used mini feat.
Which meant, that the unit shot twice with pow 21 at Sanctifier! – Combine Ranged Attack.
Templar used Shield Guard for one of these attacks and nothing terrible happened.
On the right flank, few Forge Guards tried to get rid of the Dervish.
Unfortunately, he survived on several dmg boxes.
The rest of the Dwarves were forced to attack the Templar, who engaged them.

3-0 on the scenario. (Vassal scored on the left flag)

End of 3rd round :

I need two more scenario points to win the game.
Vassal will score one point automatically at the end of my turn.
All I have to do now, is to clear the middle zone, which I manage to do easily.
Durst approaches to this zone to get a point.

I won the game 5-0 on scenario.

A few words after game :

  • Lack of a Magical Weapons in my opponent’s list, made the game easier for me.
    I did not have to worry about shooting (Passage).
  • I think the scenario was in my favor.
    My opponent, wanting to contest the right zone, left the Jacks out of Ossrum’s control.
  • Dervishes are great in Durst’s list.
    Def 15 and immune to knock down (Bulwark) is something amazing!
