I’m going first.

Deployment :

Elias Gade prey at Kayazy Eliminators.

Vindictus cast Def Ward on right Errants and Penitence on left Errants.
Rhupert gave Tough to right Errants.
Rest of the army just ran forward.

Magnus cast Escort on himself and charge forward.
Jacks ran, but stayed outside of my Knights threat ranges.
I lost few Errants from shooting.

End of 1st round :

Vindictus cast Admonition on Templar, True Path + FEAT.
Errants charged at Jacks and caused some serious damage.
Gravus came to the right flag.
Rhupert gave Tough to right Errants again.
Knights Exemplar Seneschal ran to contest the left flag.
Choir said Passage.

Magnus used his FEAT.
He chose I can not advance toward mine and his table edges.
Jacks killed as much Errants as they could.
I also lost few models from magical shooting.
No one had the opportunity to contest the right flag.

1-0 on the scenario.

End of 2nd round :

On the right flank, almost everything was affected by Magnus FEAT.
On the left flank, I managed to get rid of one Nomad.
Elias Gade shot Kayazy Eliminators.
New prey = the second Kayazy Eliminators unit.
Gravus stayed b2b with the right flag.

2-0 on the scenario.

My opponent tried to clear two zones, but without success.
Dirty Meg ran to the left flag to score a point.
Eiryss shot at Templar and disrupted him.

2-1 on the scenario.

End of 3rd round :

Dervish killed one Kayazi Eliminator.
Elias Gade Shot another one, new prey = Dirty Meg.
He shot her too, new prey = left Freebooter.
On the right flank, I got rid of Nomad contesting my flag.
Vindictus cast Admonition on himself and he came to the safe place.
I did not exactly measure it and Vindictus end his activation in Killbox.
So, 2 scenario points goes to my opponent.

4-3 on the scenario.

Left Freebooter came to contest the left zone.
On the right flank, Nomads took care of Templar and few infantry models.

Still 4-3 on the scenario.

End of 4th round :

Devout took care of one Freebooter.
Elias Gade and Knights charged at another Freebooter, but unfortunately he survived on few dmg boxes.
On the right flank, I did as much damage to Nomads as possible.
Vindictus came a little bit forward.
Rhupert gave Tough to Gravus and came to contest the zone.

Horgenhold Artillery Corps destroyed Dervish.
My opponent tried to kill my models as fast as possible – time was running out.
He end his turn with 7 seconds on the clock.

Still 4-3 on the scenario.

It was not possible for my opponent to win in seven seconds, so we finished the game.

I won the game by deathclock.

End of the game :

A few words after game :

  • Seven heavy Jacks with Unyielding…
    It’s very hard to get rid of everyone.
    That’s why it was better to play on the scenario from the very beginning.
  • Elias Gade was shining in this game.
    He helped me a lot with Kayazy Eliminators.
  • The first Oslo tournament ended.
    I am very happy with my list.
    It works exactly as I wanted!
