It is a tourny so whatever "cheesy army" I bring - deal with it
Depends on what other people brings.
You will see my casual army there.
Just out of curiosity what people bring to tournies. I have another tourny this weekend - I asked the guy running and he said he doesn't know what to expect since it is the first time they are running a fantasy tourny. I did play in a 40k tourny they hosted and people were min/maxing so that might carry over to fantasy. I think I will bring in a competitive list -Kairos,blue scribes,herald nurgle w/tarpit,herald tzeentch 9pd/6dd w/bound to it and see what others bring. Do you guys generally care what people thinks or just go for the prize?
I really like this place's tournies.. they are free and they have 150$ worth of prizes - apparently they did some deal with GW so they get 150$ for a tourny a month...

I take my casual army, but my casual army is usually built to be fairly strong. While it's never an all-out cut-throat army, I do aim to create something that plays to win.
I'll certainly play to win/place highly, but I won't really construct an army to win an event.

I enjoy balanced lists, so I try to keep my list(s) the same whether I'm playing a friend or in a tourney. That said, they aren't soft lists, but they aren't crazy over the top lists either. I try to win tourneys on my own skill rather than with an really strong list.
No, I don't have any wool.
What I mean by balanced is a list that takes advantage of all of the aspects of the game instead of maximizing one and leaving the other to rot. For example, I wouldn't really want to play a list that was full of horrors and Tzeentch heralds, but I wouldn't want to play one that was full of Khorne daemons and Khorne heralds either. Being a chaos player, it's also rare that I get to roll dice in the shooting phase other than those I take saves with, so I like to have flamers when it's possible.

It is, by the name, a TOURNAMENT. Tournament means competitive matches, so any type of list should be expected and welcomed. If you only wanted to go for fun, dont demand other people to play to your standard, you could look for any casual games at your local hobby store every day and night. Like any sport matches, you may participate for the fun of it, but dont tell other athelets what they can do and cant do. I hate seeing people whine and cry during a tournament, my god, I wish I could just tell them to pack up and leave.
Anima Tactics - try it out!
From what I've seen of tourney-type play, a balanced list is always the best you can have. So maxing out on anything imo is a bad idea since you'll get poop ratings, and you're unlikely to perform as well.
Lately I've been making my tourney lists on the cheesey side. Though they are still beatable and not "too" over the top. However I voted for being cheesey and deal with it. Its a tourney and people are supposed to play to win, meaning that cheesey lists are to be expected. Casual lists are for games outside of tourneys IMO. Don't get me wrong. I will sometimes tell an opponent before hand in a casual game I will bringing a cheesey list so he can prepare if I decide to play a cheesey list in a casual game because sometimes I like going over the top in casual games.
All Nurgle Army: 12-2-3
All Tzeentch Army: 2-0
Tzeentch/Nurgle Army: 5-1
I am a fairly regular tournament player and tend to err on the side of tactical flexibility.
Basically life sucks, there is only war and you're probably gonna get eaten by Tyranids, have fun.
