Don't ask me what he brought. I didn't face him. All I know was he had a hellcannon, a lvl4 wizard, 2 unmarked chariots and 2 unmarked knight units. (I think)
Only reason I post this is to give more lovin' to my WoC family.
Quick key for the table. The Rs are rounds with a max of 14 points. PT is painting score, each person scored the top 3 favorite painted armies, that'd be totaled in P1, P2 and P3. And those were worth something like 5points for a first place, 3 for 2nd and 1 for third. He then multiplied that by 10% to add to the total score. I believe S was sportsmanship. At the end you voted for your favorite opponent and they got 1 point for it.
The tournament had no comp score, but was had a few rules to discourage demon players. However, the Northern Ohio scene is usually comp friendly.

Why is the first thing i noticed on that table was that some one used Dogs of War and didnt come last!?
It is nice to see WoC top and i know its possible, with some good painting and a solid list, unfortunatly at the moment i have niether! One day my list will hit the top 3 at GW tournies in my area.
Daemons came at 11th and Vampires best place are 8th and 10th. It's funny that Dwarfs, Empire and Orcs came in really good places. Metagaming?
If everyone build their list to beat Daemons and Vampires, then the one who build a balanced army in that environment must crsh the opposition. And Daemons and Vampires get plastered by everyone else due to the metagaming.

I was the top VC guy. I got beat by a brettonian because I couldn't roll worth anything. And I lost to a walter, because I failed a look out sir on my lord and a greater cannon popped his head off.
If you brought demons then your opponent could use a special character list. And the guy was rather new I think anyways. He had a thirster 30 letters and 2 units of 10 fiends and that was it. He also missed game 1 so he got the average score for game 1.
We always heckle the DoW player. He must love punishment. However, he's been playing them for so long that he really knows his army and does good with them. As far as the winners, they've all mostly been playing those races for years and are good generals on top of that.
Every game had a take and hold objective, so it was bias towards people who could bring blocks of infantry, sit them in the middle of the table and defend it.
It's interesting to hear that WoC keep doing so well with varying builds. I've never had any luck with them whatsoever, nor have I ever seen a WoC player win in person. Last time I attended a tournament there were 4 players, and we all finished in the bottom half. I know that not one of cracked the top five. Although a Skaven army took first. Odd...
I've seen the effects of metagaming at it's worst. It was quite funny, after the DoC book was found to be so utterly devastating, I went to to a local tournament where everyone had built their army with DoC in mind. Fortunately for the Daemons, there weren't any Daemon players in attendance. Everyone had to backpedal and put their best anti-demon regiments against other armies.
I think warriors are better than people give them credit. However, it seems magic heavy is tending to be the best build.
I had limited success with a combat heavy full plate list in the last tournament and since then ive moved on to magic heavy and in my local gaming society im racking up win after win/draw, i havent lost in 6 battles so far.
this is going with the usual Tendrils MoT DP
2 Supporting MoN Lvl 2's
1 MoT lvl 2
and the chosen 5th wizard set up.
BEN DIESEL FTW!!!
The rumor is, he thought Gateway was too cheesy, so if he rolled an 11/12 he'd just use strength 10.
