Best battle but against the worst opponent of the tournament. His list consisted of 4 earthshackers 3 wyverns 3 bassalisks and 3 squads of conscripts (also 3 tanks that had 4 single shot rockets that were 4d6 shots - i forget the name) he also had 2 groups of scions and a character in deep strike.
I got first turn and I did nothing but advance my entire armay and shoot with my stortalons. I knew i needed to keep preassure as he was hiding all his non line of site requiring artillery behind cover. The game was long and bloody but my opponent would get very upset over his losses and when I used Auspex scan on my dev squad to take out a group of scions he lost his shit.
The best part is I foot-slogged the Girlyman (#VIP #MVP) across the map and managed to destroy 3 earthshakers (that had taken a little damage already) with 1 swing of his bad ass sword.
I ended up with 157 battle points and placing in 37th, tied with 4 others. It was such a great time and I got to meet many new cool people. I am def signing up again!
Yea for sure. I was kinda not expecting anything great so me wayne and james gotta started drinking pretty early. But. after going 3-0 in day 1 and meeting some competitive guys from wisconsin who generously schooled us on what we were doing wrong I realized what a fool i had been. But its all good. I had a great time, and even if I was dead last it wouldnt matter. The one thing that was hilarious is that Wayne got a higher paint score than me and he was literraly painting his guys seconds before the judge came to score us lol... ended up with a 147 bp and 66 pp lol
