    How did you fare the the 'Ard Boyz tourney?

    Unfortunately, I couldn't play in their tourney this year due to work, but I did stop by to watch for a while. Just curious as to how you space marines did at the preliminaries of the 'Ard Boyz tournament. Seems like almost half the people there at my local circuit played marines. I saw some crazy lists...1 marine list had Shrike + 30 TH/SS termies. Another had 5 Land Raiders and 2 Land Speeders...and he was fighting a Chaos marine list with 6 Land Raiders!

    i used deathwing and came in 3rd.

    massacre against marines in 1st round
    2 round i got a major loss to orks. 6 battlewagons with deffrolas and force field. probably the toughest game of 40k ive ever played.
    3rd round i got a major victory against orks.

    2nd round kill point adjustements hurt me very bad. my deathwing has like 30ish models, due to how they calculated kp's i had 28 kp's. my hq unit alone was worth 13 kps. the guy that beat me wound up winning first.
    if i could have pulled off any sort of victory in second round i would have got first.

    well done micah, that second round list sounds tough!

    I've been toying with a deathwing list for a while now. Would you mind saying what was in your list?

    Cheers woodie

    i gave up my semi final invitation to another player.
    taking the family to disney in sept so i dont need to be taking another trip in august for ard boyz ><

    my list has

    belial
    inter chap in term
    w/ 4 terms with dual claws, 1 serg with th/ss
    all in a LRC

    4 terms with th/ss 1 with ass cannon
    in another LRC

    2 term units with ass cannons and 1 chainfist each that deepstrike

    2 dreads with multimelta and hflamer that drop pod in
    1 dread with tl las and ml that walks on

    1 allied unit of grey knights with 2 psycannons.

    originally i had more allied grey knights, but dropped them for the 2nd LRC. they are really kinda a points filler. 200 points wont buy much of anything for deathwing.
    psycannons come in handy though ignoring invulnerable saves and they did a good job sitting on objectives with their shrouding. its also an option for a old style psychic hood. i didnt take one, however, just because i know my local competition and knew i wouldnt need it.

    that 2nd round was so tough because the way the adjusted kill points. i have 35 models in my army including vehicles and transports and i had 28 kp's. my hq unit alone was worth 13 kp's. was pretty brutal. i had to be extremely cautious with them and i played that match extremely handicapped.
    i think in a straight up fight i could have taken the deathrolla spam, no problem.

    Well i played blood Angels with Allied Grey knights 1st Round I scored a massacre against a Vanilla marine player, Second round i massacred orks due to some horrible rolling on my opponents side and third round my entire army was wiped off the field by turn three Against a 3 vendetta 6 valkyrie list. Even after the first two i only managed to tie for 4th

    3 vends + 6 valks?!? Holy cats...I guess the air cavalry list does exist. There's an IG player here, MVBrandt, who uses that list. Hmmm...wonder if it could be him.

    I fared rather badly, which is probably an understatement for one away from dead last >.<

    Bad rolling on my part as well as some stupid decisions for how I deployed really cost me.

    Imperial Guard: W6/L4/D0

    Unlikely considering he hates 'Ard Boyz almost as much as I do. There's a guy in the Philly region who plays Air Cav though. He's more of a Dakkadakka guy so I'm not sure he has a profile on LO.
