Deployment

Deployment: scenario was recon, I deployed an angel on each flank to get in each zone, battle engine centrally and seraph centrally to help whichever flank needed it and the scythean on the left so it wouldn’t get hung up by the building in the middle. Vayl deployed to take advantage of the hill.

End of Turn One

End of turn 1:
Pretty much standard run up the board, threading both zones, moved the throne more centrally. He ran up into my threat and feated catching his whole army.

Vayle2 Turn Two

I decided to not go in on him baecause I saw no favorable trades with his feat up, I positioned behind the clouds and arced a couple spells threw them to kill some sword men, allowing him 2 points for the zone and flag

Skorne turn 2

He had some line of sight issues so just had to run his swordsman up. He moved to a more defensive position with his beasts and jammed my other flank with his cats and focused on scoring. He scored one zone one flag AND killed my objective which caught me way off guard, I thought it would fall turn three, I was fine with him going up 2-0 but he ended up going 3-0….

End of Turn Three

I was in my heels a bit with him scoring the 3 points.  I new I had to get an assassination off.  He was camped on 5. Went for the assassination, fail charge with seraph to get range for my spells. Spelled him to eat some transfers and then spent the rest of the turn clearing a lane for the scythean to go in on him.  Got the charge off got him to not many boxes and no transfers……missed my first attack that would have ended it, poltergeist pushed me 3 inches back ending my assassination. He was left on 6 boxes. Vayl hella exposed.

Turn Four

He had to cut down to one box.  Vayl was exposed but far away he chose to go for the 2 points to win.  Pretty crazy turn, I had 2 heavies a light my BFS and a forsaken in the zone, he was able to kill everything with essence blasts except the naga, which was left on 2 boxes. He scores one. Goes to 4-0 but his lone beast is maxed.
Top of 4 vayl walks up and finishes him off with spells.
