I’m going first.

Deployment :

Elias Gade prey at Alten.
Farrow Brigands prey at right Errants.

Vindictus cast Def Ward on left Errants.
He also cast Penitence on right Errants.
Rhupert gave Tough to right Errants.
Choir said Passage.

Sturm cast Polarity Shield on Meat Thresher.
He also cast Vision on War Hog + Deceleration.
Minions came forward, but they stayed outside of my charge ranges.
Farrow Brigands started shooting at right Errants.
Few of them died, because of Penitence.

End of 1st round :

Vindictus cast Admonition on Templar + FEAT.
Errants killed a lot of Brigands and Slaughterhousers from shooting.
Their blessed crossbows were invaluable at this moment (Deceleration).
Choir said Passage again.
Rest of the army came to contest the zones.
Knights Exemplar Seneschal ran to contest the left flag.

Sturm said FEAT.
Brigands ran to block my models in the right zone.
Meat Thresher came forward and killed few of my models.
No one was able to kill Knights Exemplar Seneschal.

0-0 on the scenario.

End of 2nd round :

So, I need to score 5 scenario points now, to win this game.
It may sound funny, but it is possible.
Let’s try it!

Vindictus cast True Path.
Right Knights and Errants took care of disturbing models in the zone.
Rhupert ran to the right flag = 1st point.
Gravus came to Meat Thresher.
After hit, he dispelled Polarity Shield.
Choir said Battle.
Dervish and few Errants charged at BE and destroyed it.
Devout ran to the right zone = 2nd point.
Knights Exemplar Seneschal charged at Road Hog and slammed him away (after three hits).
After that, he scored a point b2b with the flag = 3rd point.
Two Knights (Battle-Driven and mini feat activated) charged at objective and destroyed it = 4th point.
Templar just stayed in the left zone = 5th point.

Mission accomplished!

I won the game 5-0 on the scenario.

End of the game :

A few words after game :

  • This is one of my favorite scenario.
    You can score here so quickly…
  • I had a little break from Vindictus.
    But he is still my favorite caster 🙂
    No one plays as well on the scenario as Vindictus does.
  • Maybe the next pair for the tournament will be Vind + Harb?
    Sounds great!
