Indeed much fun was had yesterday.
A pleasure to play on fantastic boards against great people.

Glad you enjoyed. :)
Don't forget the tireless work of Hymirl and Poppy behind the scenes.

I'll try to get the full final table up some time tomorrow.
I've been entertaining Benis, so thought it might be nice not to stick my nose into a computer all day.

I had an enjoyable day too, 4 very enjoyable games, the first time I've played against Valar and Benis! and despite killing a tau super battlesuit in hand to hand I think I'll stick with my plan to shelve the sisters of battle for a few years. Been missing my biker marines too much!

Again our apologies for the spreadsheet glitch that seems to have muddled things at the end of the day, I hope no-one felt their day was adversely effected by it.

A good day indeed and nice to see and play Killing Time and Hymirl for the first time even though Killing Times serpents destroed all my Boyz with constant rolling of 6's for his serpent shields, and Hymirl's Burny Burny sisters of doom with flamers everywhere!!!

Great tables, great games and great club.  Shame its a 5 hour round trip for me or I'd be there much more often!!

The computer glitch was a pain.
Still not sure what happened, but next time we'll keep a paper trail to make sure no-one gets hard done by.
Poppy was quite upset, but as long as people got to push their toys around in a happy manner I fail to see that any major harm was done.

Thanks for the great day. :)

She shouldn't be upset. It wasn't her fault. Plus we all saw how many points we had compared to those around us.

While I wasn't involved, I'm curious as to the top teir contestants, and more importantly their Armies and Strategies!

I put in a request for anyone that finished in the top 25% to post their lists, with a quick summary of how the list plays and if there's any "super secret tech" involved with playing it. :)

Hey GBT, I came 3rd overall and took this Necron list:

Quote
Nemesor Zahndrekh

Royal Court
2x Necron Lord, Resurrection Orb

Triarch Stalker

Triarch Stalker

Triarch Stalker

10 Necron Immortals
Tesla carbines

10 Necron Immortals
Tesla carbines
+Night Scythe

10 Necron Immortals
Tesla carbines
+Night Scythe

Annihilation Barge
Gauss cannons

Annihilation Barge
Gauss cannons

Annihilation Barge
Gauss cannons

Total - 1745

I tend to use this list aggressively with the Annihilation Barges and Triarch Stalkers moving forward in pairs as fast as they can. In a perfect world, the Stalkers take out tanks and then their paired Barge fries the troops that get out. With no tanks then the Stalkers target infantry units so that the Immortals can gain twin-linked.
They also screen Zahndrekh and his unit of Immortals, letting him grab objectives.
The other two Immortal units are joined by Court Lords which come in from reserve in the Nightscythes. Again, these are pretty aggressive and will power forward 24" from the board edge- Immortals get out and move forward to set up a beach head for the advancing units. If possible these guys come in on a flank so that the 'Scythes can get another turn on the board at least before leaving the battlefield.

Generally a wall of AV13 is pretty scary and pretty difficult to get through- this lets me move my scoring units around behind the wall and grab objectives and offer supporting fire.
The sheer amount of shots this army can put out with all the tesla is pretty damn scary too! :D

Thanks, Lorizael!

I don't want to clutter this thread with questions about the list, do you mind if I cut and paste it over to the Necron board, and ask a couple questions? I can only think of one Necron player at my GW, and I never have a chance to play her.

Yes, the rare army of my store is played by the even more rare, "Lady Gamer". ;)

I still envy you for having a store that lets you play games.

For many years, I couldn't!  For a long time, my GW had requirements for models to be this number of colours, some kind of basing... it just wound up with people playing poorly painted models, no detail work, with uncoloured sand glued to bases. They wised up, and let people play with bare plastic if they wanted. Model sales went up, and those models started getting painted slowly, but well. It lost much of the elitist atmosphere where "new players" couldn't play there, because their armies weren't up to snuff.

I'm lucky to have the store I do. I hope you find a club, or that a store opens up.

How'd you do? Where's your list? ;)


@Lorizael: Thanks! List and questions are posted!

Why don't all of you post your lists in the appropriate boards and comment on what worked and what didn't. Easier than writing a battle report.  ;)

Booo! Battle Reports! I want Battle Reports!  >:(

(though the discussions of what worked/what didn't would also be nice)

Be nice for either basically.  Koval and Lori have stepped up.  :)

Well, I'm so annoyed that meatspace kind of spiralled out of control before being able to secure a place to come. I'd even taken time out to whoop-ass -V- a few times with varying test lists but ultimately starting up my own business and taking care of initial clients had to come first.

It seems like the dice gods are against me going to play with the Vanguard!

I want to see some pictures please!!!
