I’m going first.

Deployment :

Elias Gade prey at left Gremlin Swarm.

Vindictus cast Def Ward on left Errants + True Path.
Whole army ran forward.

The Child cast Tantrum on herself.
She also cast Abuse on Skin & Moans.
Skin & Moans and two Gremlin Swarms ran to the right zone.
Dread Rots also ran as far as possible.

End of 1st round :

Vindictus cast True Path.
He also cast Admonition on Templar + FEAT.
Knights Exemplar Seneschal ran to contest the left flag.
Left Errants charged at Cage Rager and Dread Rots.
On the right flank, I managed to get rid of Skin & Moans and two Gremlin Swarms.
Rhupert gave Tough to right Errants and he came to the flag.

On the left flank, Dread Rots and Gorehound killed few Errants.
On the right flank, Skin & Moans took care of my Knights.
Unfortunately, no one had the opportunity to contest the right flag.

1-0 on the scenario.

End of 2nd round :

Everything I need to win, is to get 4 scenario points this turn.
Rhupert stayed b2b with the right flag = 1st point.
I managed to clear two zones.
Vindictus came to the left zone = 2nd point.
Dervish stayed in the right zone = 3rd point.
Templar received Pathfinder from objective.
He charged at enemy objective and destroyed it = 4th point.

I won the game 5-0 on the scenario.

End of the game :

A few words after game :

  • I went first.
    Which made the game a lot easier for me.
  • The lack of shooting in the opponent’s list, allowed me to set my models wherever I want.
    Which also helped me a lot.
