I’m going first.

Deployment :

Elias Gade prey at right Shifting Stones.

Vindictus cast Def Ward on right Errants.
He also cast Admonition on Templar.
Whole army ran as far as possible.
Choir said Passage.
Elias Gade tried to shot a “preyed” Stone, but without success.

Two Woldwraths came forward and shot few my models.
With Megalith, they created a “brick” formation.
Rest of the army hid behind them.

End of 1st round :

Vindictus cast True Path + FEAT.
Whole unit of Knights Exemplar stayed in the left zone.
Knights Exemplar Seneschal ran to Orboros zone.
Errants shot Gallows Grove.
Templar came a little bit forward.
To be honest, I did everything to score 2 scenario points in my opponent turn.
Regardless of the losses in the models.

Baldur created a wall, so that the charges at Woldwrath would be impossible.
He also cast Roots of the Earth on them.
Woldwraths killed few Errants and Knights on the right flank.
As I predicted, I scored 2 points at the end of my opponent turn.

2-0 on the scenario.

End of 2nd round :

So, I need 3 more scenario points to win this game.
At the end of my turn, I will automatically get two (left zone + my zone).
One more needed.
Vindictus cast True Path.
Two Knights (Battle-Driven activated) charged at objective + minifeat.
It was enough to destroy it.

I won the game 5-0 on the scenario.

A few words after game :

  • I do not want to play this paring again.
    Rock Wall makes the Woldwraths “impossible” to charge.
    Also, high ARM and massive healing is too much for my army.
  • The only chance to win is just a scenario.
    I think my opponent played too much for one side.
    Giving me the freedom on the left side.
