A very quick update for how we all did this weekend at one of the large tournaments in the UK. There were about 66-68 players playing at 2K in a NOVA missions format at the holy geek ground - Warhammer World.
4 Sons attended, Atreides, Kabalite, Bringer of Death (friend of the Sons) and myself, Venerable Brother.
Atreides (IG) finished 37th, a poor performance that doesn't reflect his ability.. I'll let him discuss his woes at a later date.
Kabalite finished 20th with his DE, he was on a fantastic roll until he hit a hideous GK army full of Purifiers, Strikes, Purgation - all Psycannon'd up and all in Razors...v nasty vs DE paper planes.
Bringer of Death finished 7th with his GK strike/purifier/dread/dca build. He had a very solid tournament losing to the eventual winner, Rich Morgan with Horde Orks - Bringer failed to bring his squads into the midfield, instead leaving them back in his DZ.. late game he got his Purifiers into the game and 6 Purifers wiped 60 Orks in one round of combat...if only he had done that in Turn 2 rather than Turn 4..
I finished 3rd overall with my 'Crons. I won 4 and then suffered loss in the final game. The last game was on the top table, playing for the amazing first prize of an engraved AXE! Whoot! I faced Rich Morgan's Horde Orks and we had a great game, it came down to the last turn (5) but I couldn't get there on the 3rd win condition.. we drew Primary, drew Secondary, Rich won on Tertiary, I pipped him on VP's by 10 points but that was irrelevant as he had the Tertiary...still this clawed me 9 points from 25 and Rich only 16.. so I managed to keep a high final placing and a podium finish.. Made 2 mistakes in the game that I can think of that I wish I hadn't but never mind.. I'll discuss all my games later in the week.
I won 3rd place trophy and won Best Necron trophy too.. pretty pleased! lol.
I will discuss all this and more later this week! Great tournament and great weekend..
