Elves goes first.

Deployment :

Idrians prey at Hemera.

Elves just ran, even Issyria.
Left Strike Force stayed outside of Idrians charge ranges.

Harbinger ran behind the wall.
Choir said Passage.
Idrians came a little bit forward + mini feat.
Rhupert gave Tough to Dwarves.
Attendant Priest said “immune to continuous effects”.
Monks forfeit their Combat Action to get +4 DEF.

End of 1st round :

Issyria cast Blinding Light at Idrians + FEAT.
Infiltrators charged at Idrians and killed few models.
Mage Hunter Assassin charged at Reckoner.
She did a lot of damage, but the Cortex and left arm were still working.
Right Strike Force and Phoenix started shooting at Dwarves.
They killed 3/4 of them.
After few Martyrdoms, Harbinger left on 7/8 hp.
My opponent decided to try CK.
Hemera shot at Harbinger and hit.
Devout used his Shield Guard.
Harbinger do not suffer blast damage (Vilmon b2b with her).
Now, it’s time for Mage Hunter Strike Force.
A lot of them found an angle to shoot at Harbinger without cover from a wall.
Harbinger has 10 FOCUS on herself, so after shooting, she left on 5 hp.

Reckoner aim and shot at Mage Hunter Assassin, killing her.
Harbinger cast Guided Hand on Idrians, she also heal herself + FEAT.
Idrians killed a lot of Infiltrators.
Reclaimer came to the flag to score a point.
Choir said Passage again.
Monks said +4 DEF and came to contest the flag and zones.

1-0 on the scenario.

End of 2nd round :

Retribution tried to kill as many models as possible.
Unfortunately, without Issyria’s FEAT, it was not so easy.
Elves had a big problem to deal with the Dwarves and Champions high ARM.
No one was able to contest my flag (Harbinger’s FEAT).

2-0 on the scenario.

Issyria looks very appetizing.
Harbinger cast 2x Guided Hand (on Monks) + Crusader’s Call.
Monks charged at Issyria and left her on few dmg boxes.
Champion also charged and finished her.

I won the game by CK.

End of the game :

A few words after game :

  • I was very curious about this paring.
    I was afraid that Harbinger would be just assassinated.
  • The wall from theme is just great.
    I can not imagine playing this match without a wall in the middle of the table.
  • CK was not needed.
    This game would probably end two rounds later on the scenario.

    1. I’m going to pair her with Durst.
      I need something for Cygnar and CoC I guess.
      FM theme Durst should be OK as her pair 😉

  1. I’ve played Harbinger FM into Vyros2 Griffons and it feels exceedingly advantaged. Great batrep, thanks for sharing your thoughts on the Issyria matchup 🙂
