Despite my earlier concerns I’d managed to avoid playing either Necrons or Daemons and instead found myself playing Dave Wigley and his Deathwing. I’d spoken to Dave earlier in the day about how he was finding Deathwing and I was interested to play them to better understand their use. With the tournament running backwards we’d be playing the first mission now which was Purge The Alien on Dawn of War with the additional rules that for each FOC slot you killed something from you got a bonus point e.g. the first time I killed an HQ I’d get 2 points but the second HQ would be worth 1 as normal. Dave was fielding Belial, an Interrogator chaplain (TDA of course), 2 squads of 10 DW terminators (two plasma, two cyclone, rest TH/SS) and some FW missile things. Therefore he’d only got 5 normal points available and 3 bonus points from HQ, Troops and FA. I on the other hand could give away 13 pts with choices from all but Elites (as the wolf guard become troops when they join squads). This was always going to be difficult as I’d need to comfortably table him to score enough points. We were both in a decent position in terms of the rankings too so there were potential podium spots to play for. I couldn’t rely on sheer luck at this stage
Chapter Master of the former Astral Claws, Tyrant of Badab, and Pirate Master of the Red Corsairs, Huron Blackheart has a deep background, and an interesting entry in the new 6th edition CSM codex with a bunch of special stuff.

In case you missed it I posted our list up on here yesterday. As I said in my previous post our aim was to have a more enjoyable experience than last time around where we ended up winning our final game on table 2 in a horrible environment. Here’s how we got on: Game 1 – Titanic Fenrisians vs. Brains & Brawn (DE/Orks) We stood waiting at our table for our opponents to show up but when they didn't we headed over to play Jim & Robyn on a table right under the aircon! Despite freezing conditions we had an enjoyable game. Their list was a warboss with meganobz in a battlewagon, a beautiful ork bastion conversion with lootas on top, 28 boyz, 3 venoms with wyches, bloodbrides and lady malys with court in them, 3 reavers and 5 scourges. Bit of a mixture but we were quite pleased to see a minimum amount of darklight weaponry that would upset our dreadknights. We were playing kill points (Purge the Alien) on Vanguard deployment. Our opponents decided to reserve the scourges and large mob of boyz. We took the first turn and slammed the dreadknights forward. They easily wiped out the reavers
I've been giving some serious thought to whether I want to include any fortifications in to army lists.
The Deployment Zone’s – Tamurkhan, Throne of Chaos Campaign Phase 6: The Throne of Chaos The Chaos Horde tore through the Border Lands and after the near defeat at the hands of the Night Goblin Horde, spilled into the ripe fields of the Empire.
