  1. One thing about this year that really threw me off was that it seemed as though the match ups weren't based on record but were just 5 games scheduled to fill the brackets. While thats fine for a casual event and i would have had no issue with it I think it led to some bad match ups. I was on a team that brought some stronger lists in keeping with the expectation that we would be facing the stronger lists we were seeing as the bracket progressed. Unfortunately what ended up happening was facing a spread of opponents who were unhappy with the choices we had made for our armies. This is from the perspective of someone in this same situation from the other side. I went to the event to see beautiful armies and to have 5 good games. But lots of people felt slighted by the match ups for some reason and i think its important for the event to figure out why.

    Spectators

    haha sounds good. we both definitely plan to hit the bar.
  4. I probably should have posted this before now but a friend of mine who is getting into 40K is coming with me to this event. is there a general rule of thumb for outside spectators for the tournament events. This of course assumes normal etiquette like no interrupting the flow of the game but i wasnt sure how laid back this event is for things like that.

    Is there a main page for information on the friday event? i was thinking it was an unofficial thing but now i see a ticket for it so i want to make sure i get that sorted out.

    Who is planning on playing 8th?

    I'll be packing for both with my sisters of battle but I'm really hoping that people will be most prepared for 8th as I've been having a lot more fun with that ruleset.
  8. I would agree with that. Mainly I wanted to illustrate how powerful it is to have a scout move on all of our troops as a build option.
  9. and in fairness i did warn him about the ability pre deployment, there just wasnt a lot of way for his setup to mitigate it.
  10. it was the dawn of war deployment and my opponent had quite a few imperial guard weapon emplacements on his back edge. I moved forward off the line and ended 12 inches from his table edge with most of my tanks. I caught the edges of a few of his bigger pieces. Remember the repressor says measure range from any part of the hull so most things will have a very difficult time escaping that alpha strike. Honestly, the only drawback dominions have over basic sisters is you can't take a heavy flamer but on the flipside you can give your non melta sisters a storm bolter which is pretty awesome.
  11. I played a 2000 point game over the weekend where I ran an outrider detachment and used dominions instead of regular battle sisters and just gave each squad 2 meltaguns and repressors. Being able to scout move and then normal move on t1 and be within melta range of my enemies tanks felt over the top powerful. I had crippled almost everything of value by the end of my second turn.
  12. Oh man you are telling me. The new edition changes made my lazy modeling really pay off haha.
  13. Ok thanks! ill be leaving that morning but if i can get in early enough ill be bringing this.

  14. This is slightly off topic but i don't see anything about an 8th edition friday night event. Where would I find that?
  15. This is what i use for my repressors.
