Something a Little Different

My next tournament is at the end of October, 1850pts with no allies allowed. I want to try something a little different, and thought I would post it up for your thoughts.

As I’ve explained here in the past I have a new found love for Fire Warriors, particularly in Devilfish, driving around and jumping out to kill stuff. However, I've been finding that they tend to stay in theri Devilfish for fear of being blown off the table. So, I’m wondering if there might be an alternative way to provide a Cadre with mobile torrent of fire, and flexible scoring units.

Warrington GT Tournament Report

Had a great weekend at the Warrington GT, played 6 tough games against 6 fun opponents, but man it was hard.

I had read before that this was one of the most competitive tournaments in the UK, and I can see why. It seemed like about a third of the field had played in the ETC at one time or another, and the lists were just brutal (I played a 3 Wraithknight list, and a 9 Broadside one … neither of which went well!). Still, didn’t play any idiots and had 6 fun games. When the dust settled I went 3-0-3 and came 27th out of (I think) about 50 people … what can I say – mid table obscurity! I was nominated for best painted however, and I came 3rd on player voting, which was pleasing.

Usual format, (very) brief bat reps, and some general thoughts.

List for Warrington GT

XV8 Commander

Well it's submitted now, so here it is for what it's worth.

I’ve decided not to change my list radically to deal with “Tau Hunters” e.g. Tzeentch Screamer Stars, Seer Councils etc. The more racial options I came up with (Grey Knight Allies, with Coteaz and a Vindicare) seemed too extreme. I think they weakened my list too much, and I really wasn’t going to have time to practise with it.

The list is an evolution of the list I took to Clan Wars. Here it is
