Fixxer Posted April 13, 2015 Report Share Posted April 13, 2015 This was easily one of the best events I have ever played in and its surprising given the fact that this was a completely open, unbound, un-comped no holds bar, everything goes. You'd be amazed how things shook up. The top tables WERE NOT full of gimmicky lists, it was all the great players I have come to know, bringing lists that were interesting and fun, albeit hard as nails in the hands of solid players. I think over the course of 5 games RPS lists that invest a lot in single models will have a hard time being consistent unless they get lucky with match ups. I brought a 6.3 Skaven list, no special characters, a single WLC, Abomb, and Doomwheel. Standard, 2x40 slaves 2x35 clanrats, 2 darts, 6 GR's, 10 Jezzails, Grey seer, 4 warlocks (all the toys, orb, globe, and rocket) Bsb, and a worthless WL on bonebreaker (dude sucks). I think i was in the top 15 with an 81 battle score. I was able to brass orb a Great Chaos Dragon, gotta love I1 on big dudes, and I did get Karl Franz with it, luckily. I played 5 great games against great opponents, I needed to have 5 favorite pins. Swan of War was my first game of the tournament. His warrior army is one of my favorites in the region, he did a great job of making a themed army that has potential to play well and turn heads with its beauty. SOW admitted it had been a while since he'd gotten some games in, and he had a bad match up against the Skaven, just too many high S, no armor stuff. I was able to take a few charges, hold and take out the elements one at a time. A great game, a great sport, and my favorite opponent day 1, I hope to rematch soon. Second game was against Ricky from the great white north of Canada, another Chaos player. He brought Belakor and a Great chaos dragon. I had no Idea how i was going to deal with those two elements. I luckily baited the Dragon with my Abom, they CAN flee, and I did, he had to re-direct into slaves only to eat a Brass Orb to the face the next shooting phase. I love shooting into combat. The same turn Belakor tempted fate with the WLC and lost. Thats 1200 pts in one shooting phase, super gross. Ricky was a great sport about it and we had a great game anyway enjoying chaos shenanigans, his Lord could NOT pass a LD test all game.. Id seen Ricky around at other events and never got a chance to play him, happy to get the chance this time. I always end up playing his brother Shayne, who ended up placing 1st in best general, congrats to Shayne. ** Thank you for clarifying ClassicFlava. Congrats to Sol for winning best overall!! His Gwar regiment was truly awesome. 3rd 4th and 5th small recaps to come. 3 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
