Summer Skirmish 2012 Tournament Report
For those of you who don’t know, the Summer Skirmish is run by Tim King from the Scottish ETC team who’s now the Events Manager at Maelstrom. Last year’s event was a great laugh and a totally different experience from the rest of the tournament scene. This is largely down to the fact that over 1.5 days you play 13 games!! That might sound a lot but not when you consider it’s 500pt combat patrols. I took DE to last year’s event and learnt a lot. This year was no exception and I took the following: 500pts of Dark Eldar 10 Kabalite Warriors (Blaster, Splinter Cannon, Sybarite) 8 Reavers (2 Heat Lances) Razorwing Jetfighter (4 Shatterfield Missiles, Splinter Cannon) Now I’m not going to pretend this is an amazing list but it is fun! Basically I wanted to bring a flyer along to see how they fared and because some armies there simply couldn’t deal with them. The reavers are fantastic in 6th edition and the kabalites are frankly only there because you have to take 1 troop! The format is pretty simple. Players are randomly assigned to pools of 4 and play all three opponents. Players are then ranked and play in another group of 4.
