I felt they certainly could hang and took a tough list which did exceptionally well for me and won the tournament.
For Blog Wars 2 I took my Necrons as the new hotness and to show what they could do, I was the only Necron player there as well if I remember rightly.
I've made a name not just for winning the tournie, but surely also for taking under represented or new armies.
By taking my Necrons I am in some ways going against the spirit of the event. They are established as a tough and legitimately competitive army. Like Alex over at From the Fang says, half the field is taking stuff they wouldn't dream of taking to a hardcore event.. then there is me.. I am taking that sort of thing..
For a moment, let's forget the GK players, the IG players, the BA players and the DE players that are all attending.. especially Atreides... all of whom make up the majority of the tournament.. there are currently 2 Necron players.
Soon to be one.
If the Blog Wars community wants, I will run an army that is not currently being represented at Blog Wars.
Sisters of Battle
I can't really run Tau without a huge amount of work which I simply don't have time for. Strike them.
I need to do a lot of work to run Eldar to tournament standard. Strike them.
I CAN run either CSM or Sisters by using my Blood Hunters space marine chapters.
The Sisters are just my Band of Brothers theme army, so if you don't mind playing Transvestite Marines I can run them.
I think this represents a very good option, running an army that is not currently being represented at Blog Wars, making the tournament really quite well rounded and almost complete.
Also, let's face it, there is a reason why these armies are not currently present.
They pretty much bite.
Or are boring and one dimensional.
I am happy to run CSM without a SC or Sisters/Band of Brothers WITH a character.
Neither army will be as fully painted as the Necrons, but they will all be 3 colours minimum.. the vehicles still look ace though so.. ho hum..
What do you need to do? Tell me to run them.. or tell me to shut up and just run my Necrons.
I'm not going to lie, I really want to win for a 3rd time.. Desperately. It's a cracking record and its £50. ...but in the spirit of the event I am happy to do this...
