The Razorwing Griffon tramples the Praetorian Karax on the left destroying them easily. The Rip Horn Satyr tramples the Karax in front of it to get to the Titan Gladiator. It performs poorly with bought attacks due to the Agonizer. The Scarsfel Griffon doesn’t move within 4″ of the flag to prevent Naresh from dominating again. Circle 0 – Skorne 2.

Round 3 – Skorne

Naresh feats adding a +3 strength to every beast. The Bronzeback Titan kills the Rip Horn Satyr. The freed up Titan Gladiator charges the Circle objective and destroys it. With the remaining attacks it kills the other Rip Horn Satyr. The Titan Sentry charges the Wild Argus and barely breaks a sweat killing it. With two bought attacks it destroys the Scarsfel Griffon.

Naresh dominates a flag for the second point. Skorne 4 – Circle 0.

 

Round 4 – Circle

In a last ditch effort, Kaya charges forward through the Titan Gladiator at the Paingiver Beast Handler. Loki’s impact attack kills it. Kaya’s charge attack is redirected onto the Titan Gladiator. That plus bought attacks and Blood Spiller get the Titan Gladiator almost dead.

The Razorwing Griffon tramples the Swamp Gobber Bellow Crewman and destroys it, dealing not enough damage to the objective in the process. The Warpwolf Stalker charges the Titan Gladiator taking it out. Naresh dominates for 1 ending the game. Circle 2 – Skorne 5.

Conclusion

There were a few bad placements with preventing Naresh from dominating and that would have lengthened the game a little. Better remembering of Reposition 3″ would have helped significantly here.
