ok so I want to enter a torreny, nothing big, just one a local guy is running, maybe about 7-10 other people and I need a boost to my army so I have a decent sized force for this level for the 1000pts but this guy insistes on WYSIWYG.
I want to use A) Human Axilury and Some of my Freinds Fire Warriors to expand one of my squads and create a new one.
Problem with A) Human Axilury's are equiped with Lasguns, the only space marines I have access to are equiped with 7 Bolters, 1 Flamer, 1 Missile Launcher and a Sergent with Bolt Pistol and Chain Sword, so I cant use them becuase the WYSIWUYG thing, why is it they can't have decent weapons again, did they loose them when they were left behind? Did the ships call the gun back up but not have time for the soldiers?
Problem with The freind I would be borrowing from doesn't play War Hammer, he just likes to paint the figures becuase he likes painting models (which is sad cause his paint jobs suck). For this reason the Fire Warriors he has dont fit into my squads. 2 Guys with Drone Controlers, to many guys with Carbines or that otherwise cant fit into my squad or go into another, with not enouph troops to start a new one, because he put them together to look nice and he bought some 2nd hand. Like this I can only can have new 6 Fire Warriors, 3 of which will not have a squad to go into.
I also lack any sort of Heavy Fire Power other than my Krootox becuase I cant have Human Axilery with Missile Lunchers.
I currently have $10 and there is not telling when I'll get anymore money so buying more troops isnt an option. As my army stands it adds up to 323/1000pts a feilding in in the torrny will only have me killed unless my first match is vs. Orks or Imperial Guard without vehicals, as I have killed Ork and IG forced twice my size (around 600-800pts) before with my 323pts army, but only due to my expert use of the terrain to my advantage and I have no idea the terrain that will be used for this. Should I just drop out of the torrny as no not embarass myself?
With only 300 points, you won't stand a chance in a 1k pt tourney. I wouldn't bother, if I were you. And towards the human auxilary part- they are normal humans, not space marines. I don't think space marines would get captured, and agree to fight for a xeno. All human auxilaries are former gaurdsmen, thats why they have lasguns.
I would respectfully bow out of the tourney until you are ready. I realize you would like the experience...but that's like sending a baby into a boxing ring.
Record as of 26 December for my Static Tau Cadre.
10 wins, 0 losses, and 1 draw.
Last game: Victory over Necron in a 600 point "kill em all" that lasted til turn 10 ending with a phase out.

Save your entrance fee, save some money up and buy figs when you can. Check ebay, usually some deals there and since they usually take a few weeks to find a screaming deal, you should have the money when it presents itself.
Don't think about entering, it is as they put it, a waste of your time and resources. Just play, and have fun.
I'm 17 without a credit card so ebay isnt an option.Originally Posted by tarzen
if you want experience i wouldnt go to a tournament (espscially with what you have) but go to veteran nights or begginner nights
The avatar is the emperor as a pimp. Well, i like it.
No Offense, but I have to say, it really doesn't sound like you're ready for a tounament, at all.
I just want to see how you killed 1k worth of Orks with...what, 20 Firewarriors and a Shas'el?
Edit: Oh, forgot you had a Krootox, so you must be taking Kroot.
So, what's your army, 10 warriors, a lightly equipped Shas'el and some Kroot?
8 Fire Warriors, 1 Fire Warrior Shas'ui, 2 Gun Drones
9 Kroot Carnivors, 1 Kroot Shaper, 1 Krootox

With this I beat an approx. 700pts Ork army by using cover and being on higher ground so most orks could not get around to the other side of the cover and up the steps. I just kept shooting at 30'' and then 28'' with the Kroots, further with their Krootox Gun. When they got really close I could take the Double Attack and really wasted them. I only took 3 Kroot Casualties when a few Orks did get to the stairs and they rushed the Kroot, luckily I killed them and then hunded their HQ that stayed way at the back with the entire force, the battle feild was an abandon city and about 5'x7', they had some kinda bike but I made short work of it.
The IG army was around 600pts and the died like flys. This battle freind was 6'x6' and a Jungle. They only had 1 vehical, a Sentinal, the rest was a mass of Shock Troops and a few Storm Troopers. I just set up the most defencable place I could with only 3 entrances. When the Shock troops came they dropped like flys. I only needed to Roll to Hit and Wound with the Fire Warriors becuase the IG Sv sucked. When they got 15" away I wasted them with Double Fire, I think I killed an entire squad with the Fire Warriors. The Kroot didnt fair was well as usual but hey they did Get mained by the Sentinal with my getting the Krootox in place. I one though becuase none of his guys could move and reach me with their weapons before I got around 2 shots at them, and IG Shock Troops suck.
I also killed around 50 tyranid once with this force but mainy becuase wit the fire warriors I onyl needed to roll to Hit with one type of them becuase my AP 5 and their Sv 6+.
PS: I had renforcments from a freinds tau army of 6 Fire Warriors and Missile Pod Crisis Suit for the IG battle.
