Confirmed by keika

Had quite bad starting conditions in this game.
Started in peninsula with a lot of wetlands and surrounded by mountains.
Nearest independent was on island and hostile to me.
Almost all guards nearby were draconian (apprentices, elders) or forges.
In starting army I had 3 useless nightwatches and my first hero was frostling, so it was quite hard to clear all these sites.

Looking at all of this situation, I decided to try to rush my opponent.
Built only few reanimators in my throne and went to the middle of the map.
Scouted mahimka quite late and discovered that he is theocrat, what was even worse for me.
I gathered 5 stacks in total (including 2 stacks of cadavers), bought units from 2 inns. Luck was not on my side and with a lot of opportunites I managed to convert only two undead units - carrion bird and reanimator. Got ghoulify strike on my heroes quite late and never succeeded to convert anyone.
Could potentially get a bit more army, but lost of couple of units because of stupid mistakes and had to sacrifice two more (including elite pony rider) because of petrified/webbed leader and hero.

Turn 19 or so, I scouted where my opponent's throne is placed and went directly to it.
At the same time I found that he unluckly lost his leader and it was my chance to win the game.
I didn't have one more turn to capture throne while he was in void, but I still was able to catch him.

His leader returned back on turn 22 and ran away from my approaching army. He blocked bridge with two stacks trying to save his leader, so I was able to attack him with only one ground stack. But I had 5 floating/flying units and so it was 11 vs 12 battle.

I lost my necro hero, but won this battle and then caught his leader a few tiles next from that place. Throne has been captured, so it was a gg.

Never seen opponent's entire army, but I guess his army was much bigger than mine (unfortunately I exited the game before I took knowledge and military screenshots).
