Skorne goes first.

Deployment :

Elias Gade prey at left Immortals.

Zaal cast Aura of Power on himself and Vision on Hakaar.
He also cast Force Aura.
Immortals ran as far as possible.
Krea cast her animus (Force Aura) and charge forward.

Vindictus cast True Path, Penitence on left Errants + FEAT.
Errants + Elias Gade came forward and shot 4 or 5 Immortals.
Blessed crossbows ignored Krea’s Force Aura.
Rhupert gave Tough to left Errants.
Gravus ran to the flag.

End of 1st round :

Zaal used his FEAT.
Immortals ran to engage my models.
Cyclops Raider and Shamans killed few Errants.

Vindictus cast Def Ward on right Errants + Admonition on Templar.
Knights Exemplar Seneschal ran to contest the right flag.
On the left flank, I got rid of almost the entire Immortals unit.
Rhupert gave Tough to left Errants again.
Gravus stayed b2b with the flag.
On the right flank, I killed few Immortals in my zone.
Devout stayed in the right zone to score a point.

2-0 on the scenario.

End of 2nd round :

Skorne tried to clear the left zone, but “steady” Errants with Tough survived there.
Rest of the army killed as many of my models as possible.
Ancestral Guardian ran to the flag.
Unfortunately, nobody had the chance to contest my flag.

3-0 on the scenario.

All I have to do now, is to get two more scenario points.
Errants + Knights cleared the right zone.
Someone came to contest Skorne flag.
Devout stayed in the right zone to score a point.
Gravus stayed b2b with the left flag to score the second point.
It was enough to win the game.

I won the game 5-0 on the scenario.

End of the game :

A few words after game :

  • I really wanted to start this game.
    Fortunately, as a second, I managed to quickly accumulate the right amount of scenario points.
  • Tough, Penitence and Brother’s Keeper.
    Awesome combination.
    It helped me a lot with 22 ARM Immortals.
