Welcome to Librarium Online!
I just finished my ard boyz tournament. View army lists forum for my list.
My first matchup was vs dark angels deathwing, scenario was cleanseI got a minor vicotory which was 700-1200 victory points difference. My 2nd round was vs all infantry imperial guard, the scenario was escalation, i got 5 units in on turn 2 and 4 of them were glance 5/6 with the 5's being rerolled to 5s again. Turn 3 I got the rest of my army out and they were all blown up minus 1 devilfish. The game ended in a massacre, this opponent went on to take 3rd place. My final match up was vs. nidzilla and i got another minor victory. All 3 of my opponents are long time 40k players, so I was pretty impressed with my results. I think i coulda scraped in at least a draw had the 2nd game not been the worst scenario for me and the best scenario for my opponent comboed up with ungodly luck with glancing. This was my 2nd tournament which i have 4 wins, 1 Loss, 1 draw.
The top 3 armies were.
1st Place was Infantry marines with lots of heavy bolters
2nd Place was Mech. Witchhunters
3rd was all infantry IG, 14 autocannons 10 lascannons 100 conscripts with libram gaunt making 1 unit of conscripts fearless.
There were 3 tau players and 16 players. I think all 3 tau players got 2 wins 1 loss. 1 mech 1 hybrid 1 was Farsight Enclave.

Was wondering did you not use the Ard boys scenarios?
Dont know if you were looking for others to post their result but I will go ahead.
I got 2nd place out of 16 people. All and all I think it was and awesome tourny as I have only played my tau in 7 games ( 3 of which were at the tourny )
First game was vs blood angels, I basically tabled him and had like 2000 points of my army left + objectives. It was a massacre.
Second game was vs IG, the mission gave me the game here as when his troops came on all my stuff was basically in the middle so he couldnt get any rear armor shots and he didnt do the same so all my warfish just basical FoF his tanks in the rear armor. Again it was a massacre.
Third game was vs necrons, the mission helped a lot here as the extra distance ment my ion cannons got to pwn his destoryers before he could do much but I forgot to tau dance with a team of suits which gave him an objective and made the battle slightly in his favor. It was a minor defeat ( had about 350-400 more VPs then me )

- You must set fire to water or you will be extinguished.
Gamesworkshop didnt send my store the scenarios instead they sent an Apoc. ruleset and 6 invitations to the qualifier so the tournament runner just rolled scenarios for each round.
At our store, we had the same problem with GW not sending the scenarios but our guy there got a hold of them that morning (or the night before ) and had them faxxed over.
I ran a tau mechanized list. 2 hammerheads, 4 DF (2 for pathfinders) and 2 piranhas. Other stuff to fill out, few crisis suits, a stealth team and 2 broadsides.
At any rate, the first scenario I played an Eldar player. I wiped him out to man. Got alot of failed leadership tests in the first couple rounds making his troops flee off the board. Got a major victory with all bonus points.
Second battle I faced off against nids. Being a horde army, he didnt get his troops in until turn 3 and by then he was already down to a single zoanthrope and a carnifax with 1 last wound. Major victory again with all extra points.
My last game was against a plague marine army. Tied with him but mainly because at this point the game event was in the bag for me so it didnt really matter as much but he still hurt me pretty bad knocking out all my mechanized except 1 devilfish. It was a fairly close battle but because I went second I could have scored a miinor just by moving troops into other quarters.
All in all in our store 1rst was me, second was a deamonhunters list and I dont recall who took third but I believe it was an SM player.

The number one spot had like 65 points outta 72 points. I dunno what the scenarios were supposed to be like but my 2nd round match up was just too much in his favor, though sadly he is using 1/3 of my imperial guard. He had to borrow all his army as he had no IG and wanted to run an all infantry army. So he borrowed like 330 IG from 4 different players. Combo up the bad match up with him glancing 6 two hammerheads and glancing 5 with rerolls to 5s again on 2 devilfish and glance 6 on piranha on turn 2. It was unlucky scenario with his ungodly luck. The event was alright though i dont see me playing in another tourney over 2500 points any time soon. Spending 45 mins watching someone put down 350 IG was just stupid.
