Some time ago, i posted this list for the 2000p tournament in my FLGChttps://www.thedarkcity.net/t17862-2000p-tournament-list#221284
How did i fare in the three games with that list against the dudes who play at ETC (European ITC
Opponent : Eldar player with about 6 Wave Serpents + Autarch + Farseer + Spiritseer + 3 x Rangers + Hemlock (memory might fail in some details, but you get the idea)
A win! 13-7 was the final score and i was stoked! All the WS´s had Cannons, so loads of S6 shots with re-roll of one´s and Doom & Jinx all over. I could have scored a bit higher win margin, but made one mistake in one round causing me to lose at least 3 points
. Still, first touch to the "big boys" league and i was feelin alright!
Opponent : Tyranids & Genestealer cult, loads of big critters, genestealers and hive guard and the little troop options...
Lost the game 20-0...cult ambush is quite annoying
. I could have had few points, but the kill points racked the point difference so high, i called the game in the end of the 4th or the 5th...
Poor deployment on my Ravagers and failing 4/5 9" charges (even with the re-roll) in turn 2 sealed the deal. I think one of the most stupid 8th edition rules is the fact, that one unit can hold/score more than one objective per turn, fe. 30 Hormagaunts holding three objectives for a while...
Still an ok game, no bad spamming in the opponents list, he had few good strategems (Hive guard firing TWICE in the shooting phase cleared out a lot) and knew his stuff (and how to avoid mine
Opponent : Smurfs with 5(!) Repulsors and 3 something in a Rhino chassis with T8 and shoots a lot AND the Guilliman standing in the middle letting them re-roll EVERYTHING. Do i need to say more? This game reminded me why i don´t like to play pro level games. In turn 5 had only the Archon left and all i destroyed in my turns was ONE repulsor...Two Talos & 5 x Grots got in CC with Guilliman and got him down to 2 wounds, but then he dusted them all...that was my shot, but no go. Points wise i was rollin along, but the wipe out was imminent...Archon failed like third 2+ and he still had 30 shots left...
I was 8/9, but if we forget the hobby points 7/9...
I was happy with the win and the lessons learned from the 2nd game, but the 3rd game was not for me...maybe go again in the future, but i enjoy more of the "fluff" tournaments.
