Ok, so went to my first large tournament with my TK today. Played 3 rounds and walked away with 2 massacres in my favour and one loss... (my army routed as my banners died) and left the day with best sport. Not to shabby IMO.
Game 1 vs Dwarfs. Was over in 5, there was a lot of brutal fighting in this game, he had invested a lot of points in his warmachines, and a combination of him making some bad mistakes in deployment, and my magic being the unstoppable awesome phase that it is won me the day.
Game 2 vs High Elves: I was happy to play them because it is the one army that I have had a lot of experience playing against as my brother plays them. 50 Sea Guard, Teclis a nasty lord with some swordmasters and 4 bolt throwers. In this game my MVP's where a depleted unit of spear skellies that flank charged the huge seaguard unit, and broke them taking teclis with them then got overrun. That was like 1100pts in one charge it was awesome. Other highlights of the game included me killing both my screaming skull catapults in the same shooting phase with misfires and my casquet of souls killing 3 out of 4 bolt throwers when it went off on turn 4.
Game 3 vs Warriors of chaos: vs a veteran general that I have played before and always has a trick up his sleeve. This game went really well for me on the first two turns, my shooting was annihilating his army. But his turn three turned it for him as he made some rediculous charges (like rolling 11's for the distance) to catch my archer unit offguard making me lose a standard and the icon and prince in one round... the tomb guard came to help but by then it was too late as the spear skellies got tied up with a deamon weapon wielding jugger lord that ate the unit wholesale, making me loose my third banner and with my fortitude so low I routed. My catapults this game were awesome, they took out the sorceror on disc and did damage here and there, I should have focussed on the jugger lors as I forgot that he did not get LOS rolls when in a unit, that would have turned the tide for me having had a bit better target priority. Anyway had a tonne of fun and I am looking forward to the next tournament but this time its only 2500pts.
Things that I liked and did not like and stuff I learned:
No point in taking a small unit of 10 archers as a mage bunker, my new list has 2 units of 30 archers in it, these guys were awesome, with our magic that WILL go off thats 60 archers. every turn. nice.
The chariots were a waste TBH. I took 4 and in 2 games they died and in the third they did not do anything. They are squishy and can really only run interception against warmachine killers or small harass units. One thing tho is that the enemy will still look out for them, and therefore we can use this to our advantage make them react to them and they are fast enough to remain out of trouble usually. If they are alive long enough you can then use them in the late game to flank or rear charge units that you need to break.
All my characters rocked. And the casquet of souls is awesome as well.
I only took one tomb scorpion and I wish I would have taken 2. The huge block of tarpit skellies was great although the spears were a waste of points, and I will just give them hand weapons from now on. Anyway
Nice mini report bud, kudos on doing so well in the new order
I was particularly impressed by how well you fared against the dwarfs as these look like they could be a major force under 8th. Any further details you might care to add here would be much appreciated.
Also, any chance of a quick run down of your list? I'd particularly like to see how your characters were set up and any thoughts you had on these (esp the I.B.).
