May Tournament Recap
Posted by hyv3mynd
This month's local event was a 1999pt tournament with an allowance for one forgeworld unit as long as it wasn't superheavy, gargantuan, or a d-weapon. Scoring was battle + painting. One of the cool perks this month was the DaBoyz team from Adepticon brought in their Tau terrain to play on. More pics of their project can be found here.
Here are more terrain pics from the event before I get to the games.
Here's the list I took:
Librarian + hammer (155)
Inquisitor + psyker ml1, psyocculum, servo skulls x3 (89)
Henchmen x 7 - 3 plasma cannon servitors, 4 warrior acolytes (76)
Chimera + searchlight (56)
Terminators x5 + banner, halberd, hammer, psycannon, warding stave (270)
Strike Squad x10 + psybolt ammo, hammer, halberds x2 (240)
Strike Squad x5 + psycannon (110)
Rhino + searchlight (41)
Stormraven Gunship + hurricane sponsons, assault cannons, hvy bolters, psybolt ammo (255)
Dreadnaught + autocannons x2, psybolt ammo (135)
Maugan Ra (195)
Rangers x5 (95)
War Walkers x3 + scatter lasers x6 (180)
Aegis Defense Line + Quad Gun (100)
I chose this list with painting scores in mind and the desire to play something different.
My first game was against Brian. His list was approx:
Overlord + res orb
Cryptek (storm) x2
Paladins x5 + 2 psycannons, hammers, halberds
Warriors x9 + night scythe
Warriors x10 + night scythe
Our first mission was The Relic with Hammer/Anvil deployment. Not much to say here tactically. I had no melta and only 3 psycannons and 2 hammers to try and crack the monoliths. Not to mention I was out-flyered. I won the roll and opted to take second turn.
