I’m back! For those of you who followed along on Twitter and Facebook, the results are known. For those who did not… I came 5th overall, though with slow play count back I came 4th (winning four and losing one). Lots to talk about and hopefully I will get all the battle reports scheduled before I go (I forgot my camera so all the pictures are mobile phone quality). Brief recap.
The list I used is here. The missions were ITC (sans the Relic).
As you read this, day 1 will likely already be over and I am probably licking my wounds as I head into another tournament with very little practice with my list. Flakey gaming buddies *stares pointedly at someone*. You can follow along on the Facebook and Twitter feeds.
Anyway, ended up going with a modified Girlyman list with some thrown in Conscript allies – because you can. I unfortunately did not have time to finish off all my heavy weapon Marines or Conscripts so no super pretty pictures of the army but I will make sure they get finished when I return so I can (it’s amazing the amount of Marine models I have painted and then keep needing to add to them…).
List is below:
As much as I would like to have all my Tyranids ready, I know I will not be able to paint that much in that timeframe (early September). So while I am going to be practicing with Tyranids my next tournament preparation will be for Space Marines since very little painting will be required (while I am keen to continue giving Tau a go, that also requires painting and / or borrowing minis again).
