Khador goes first.

Deployment :

Karchev cast Road to War on himself.
Kell ran to the forest.
Marksman stayed on the hill.
Rest of the army ran as far as possible.

Durst cast Hallowed Avenger on Sanctifier and Bulwark on himself.
Jacks ran forward and stood b2b with each other.

End of 1st round :

Kell shot at Sanctifier, but missed. (DEF 16)
Second shot hits and dealt auto 3 dmg.
Yuri charged at Sanctifier and miss all Thresher attacks!
Ashen Veil and Bulwark made my Heavies 14 DEF + Dervish 17 DEF vs melee attacks.
Holt and Marksman killed few Zealots and activated Road to War movement.
Jacks ran forward.

Zealots killed Yuri. (bombs pow 8)
They also tried to kill Marksman, but without success.
Durst cast Boundless Charge on Sanctifier and Indictor + FEAT.
Sanctifier charged and killed Kell Bailoch.
Choirs said Battle.
On the right flank, Indictor and Templar destroyed one Devastator.
Hierophant ran to the flag.
Left Templar did few dmg to another Devastator.

1-0 on the scenario.

End of 2nd round :

Marksman came to the flag to score a point.
Devastators decided to Bulldoze few of my Jacks and knock down them. (Head-Butt)
My opponent didn’t want to “open” Devastators.
So, Karchev kept his FEAT and Devastators stayed in 23 arm version.

1-1 on the scenario.

I managed to smash the right Devastator.
Dervish missed his slam attack roll against Devastator contesting my flag.. 🙁
Zealots killed Marksman and Forge Seer.
Rest of my models did a HUGE damage to enemy Jacks.
Two of them lost Cortex – that was the most important thing.
Durst ran to the safe place.

End of 3rd round :

Karchev FEAT.
He also allocate as many Focus as possible.
Jacks destroyed Sanctifier and did a lot of dmg to left Templar.
Devastator (this one near my flag) tried to smash the Indictor, but without effect.

It was only easier in my next turn.
I had to face an arm 19, not 23.
I managed to smash all Khador’s Jacks.
Only 1 left, but without Cortex.

After that, my opponent surrendered this match.

So, I won the game.

A few words after game :

  • It was a very good idea to wait until Durst’s FEAT end up.
    Beating my 25 arm Jacks would be pointless.
  • I love FM theme so much..
    If I played on another theme, I would not have the chance to break through such a high arm.
  • Zealtos seems to “be made” to play in FM theme.
    They are perfect to activate Hand of Vengeance!
