Trolls goes first.

Deployment :

Trolls just ran as far as possible.
Everyone stayed in Krielstone Bearer aura.

Choir said Passage.
Malekus and his Jack ran behind the wall.
Alten shot at Bomber, dealing few dmg.
Book said “no kd”.

End of 1st round :

My opponent thought about the CK for a long time.
After carefully calculating the chance of success, it did not make sense.
Bomber ran outside of EoT threat range.
Grissel came behind the wall and shot three times at EoT, dealing few dmg.
She also cast Earth’s Blessing on herself.
Left Bomber + Mountain King tried to kill the Monk.
Unfortunately, without success.

Book said “no kd”.
Malekus hid behind the building and said FEAT.
Whole my army started shooting.
As a result, I got rid of objective and Bomber.
Right Bomber stayed alive on two boxes 🙁
Revelator and EoT scored points in the zones.

3-0 on the scenario.

End of 2nd round :

Bouncer ran to contest the right zone.
Grissel shot (spray) at Monk and killed him 🙁
Mountain King took care of Revelator.
Trolls tried to clear the left zone, but without success.

Malekus ran to the safe place.
Book said “no kd” again.
Zealots came to contest the left zone.
EoT killed Bouncer and scored a point.

4-0 on the scenario.

End of 3rd round :

The last chance for the Trolls, was to clear one of the zones.
Unfortunately, the plan failed.

Several models ran into the right zone to contest it.
In my next turn I just killed them, scoring the last scenario point.

I won the game 5-0 on the scenario.

A few words after game :

  • The Covenant of Menoth was priceless.
    Without “no kd” aura, Malekus would have been dead long ago.
  • Thorn Gun Mages and Revelator are perfect with Malekus.
    I’m not sure about Sunburst Crew and Alten.
    Probably I’ll replace them for another Zealots unit.
  • Below, the best moment of the game!

  1. Love the list construction. I will also play Revelator and EoT with Mal (as soon as my Revelator is finished). they are a battle group I have had “on paper” for a while.

    1. I think this battle group is the best for Malekus 🙂
      I played EoT + 2x Reckoner once, but I did not like it much.
      When your Revelator will be ready, let me know how the game went! 😉
