Hello brothers, and sisters perhaps!
The 1500 water warrior list was a success!!!
I got 4 victories 1 loss (draw, loss on VP... 161!!! I lost for 11 VP) and the 4rth spot of the tournament (out of 32). I was tied to 3rd place but lost it due to ELO Ratings.
The list was the LR heavy I had posted but with the ideas of all of you cooked together!
Simply put it was 3 LR, 3 x Troops (7 guys each) with 1 Incinerator and BC with Psychic Hood and Incinerator.
I played initially with a Necron annihilation and won 6-0 kill points... I managed to Immobilise 2 of my LR with difficult terrain tests but wiped out his Tomb Spyders, Monolith, 2 x Destroyers and a unit of Warriors! No infantry casualties!
Then with a Blood Angel heavily mechanised. Managed to win with 3-1 objectives. Praise the LR and its large size and tank shocking ability to throw troops away from objectives by sheer size.
Then I was defeated by the Evil Eldar and their Seer Council on Jetbikes... I killed the actual Council (praise the Psychic hood and my good rolls) but the fire dragons killed 1 of the Lr and the other got immobilised 4 inches away from the enemy objective.
Fourth fight was against Impirial Fists with 2 named characters... I killed the enemy LR in round 1 leaving his termies on the ground, rushed in with 2 of my lrs disembarked and slaughtered 5 terminators and lysander. Killed a rhino carrying his sternguard and then he conceeded. (LR + Termies + Lysander was like half his army and the sternguard were left 30 inches away from me).
Last fight and my luckiest was against Nids... poor guy had more than his army unable to touch me in my LRs... after killing the Flyrant and the 'fex the only thing that could potentially be any danger was the brood lord so 2 units of pagk ATTACKED the stealers and killed them all... (but then got rushed) that still left me with 1 troop to take my capture and control (and 2 LR to block the way of the enemy in a reverse V formation while the 3rd LR simply contested his!
The guy who got first place was the Eldar with the seer council (he traditionally gets the first place in both tournaments that are hosted every year). Second was a WITCHHUNTER! and 3rd a ... Chaos Daemon....
Still it was the best tourney we have had in years in Greece. ALL armies present... ALL! Even all the printed Marine codices (Blood Angels, Dark Angels, Black Templars, Space Wolves) AND Dark Eldar!
I got an honarary award (the gave me a gift check for 15 euros) for getting so high and basically getting 3rd place if there had not been this damned elo rating (I dont play often in Tourneys so I was defacto with very low ranking)!
Thanks for the help LO Community of DH! Next time I will bring home (to Saturn) the MEDAL!
Good to see people do well with DH. 3 x Land Raiders FTW haha! Rep for you for 3rd place
I hear and I forget, I see and I remember, I do and I understand
Success is the ability to go from failure to failure without losing your enthusiasm.
Very well done on a hard fought campaign. The Inquisition is pleased. I'm curious as to the composition of the eldar army, if you remember approximately.
PS - Oh, and reps for representing...
Seer Council with Farseer all of them on Jetbikes,
1 Falcon (?) with firedragons + Eldrad
1 Falcon (?) with guardians (I think... troop choice anyway)
1 Falcon (?)
3 x Guardians on Jetbikes
and one more unit that I cannot recall what it was.
Overall it was a pretty decent list and fairly powerfull... My fear were off course the Council with their STR 9 attacks against vehicles hence when they approached I was forced to charge out two units to kill them before they got to the vehicles... also in order to stop the firedragons I tried to unload the other unit of PAGK and kill the tranposrt they were in... despite the many attacks I failed and then the firedragons unloaded and killed (alongh with Eldrad and the vehicles shooting) that troop...
Best funny moment was when I Incinerated Eldrad later in the fight! No save! ha!
PS> The falcons could be Waveserpents I dont know the difference that well... I know that at least 1 of the 3 vehicles had these holofields thingies that make you roll 2 and keep the lowest...
They were probably Serpents, I don't think a Falcon can take more than 6 models (Guardian squads are mandatory 10+) and they've got some sort of space-elf mega-laser on them too.
Good job though, it's always nice to see Daemonhunters doing well in tournaments
Congratulations! Well done, surely the Emperor is pleased!
ninjabackhand: point and click, again, really? even after i give you an military term "shock tactic" you still call it point and click.
