MiniWarGaming Tourney results.....

I was going to bring my camera but I was running late and so I have no media on the days adventure.... :(
On the plus side the guys at MiniWarGaming were shooting vid and pics of the day so when that is posted I'll let you know.

So, how'd it go? Well I was late so my first game was short but managed to pull out a win.

Game 1. I was facing a DeathWing army (2 Landraiders, 20 termies, 1 dread). The mission was Take and Hold with a secondary objective being "have a unit in each table quarter". I held the Primary Objective for a minor win.

Game 2. A battle against Chaos Iron Warriors with a turn 4 random objective roll. The Chaos army consisted of 2 vindicators, 1 Pred w/ 3lascan, 2 units of marines, 1 unit of bikes, kharne, 1 Dread,and a lord. By turn Four the we were to hold objectives (each terrain feature), this ended as a major win as I was holding more terrain and had the secondary objective (kill enemy characters). My opponent was a good sport, and I don't think he had a lot of experiences dealing with a highly mobile army.

Game 3. A battle against the Greater Good. This game I knew would be a tough one. The mission was objective counters (5 of them) and deployment was on the short table edges 24 inches in. I won the roll for deployment so I let the Tau go first. This Tau force was a lot of models ( 2 commanders, 2 crisis, 6 stealth, 2 firewarrior units, 2 unit of kroot, 2 unit of pathfinders, 1 piranha, 3 broadsides). He held all the suits and the kroot in reserve, I deployed only my Farseer. The Farseer survived two turns of the broadsides shooting and a turn of the suits shooting (gotta love fortune). On my second turn almost my whole army showed up minus two prisms, that's when the Tau started to die. My opponent was real cool, despite my awesome rolling and surviving everything he threw at me. The game ended with me holding 1 objective and Tau holding none. It was major win due to secondary objective (kill most expensive unit).

Game 4. This battle was a tough one. The center of the table was the objective and Night Fight rules for the whole game. My opponent was Chaos (2 lash prices, 3 units of marines in rhinos, 2 oblitorators, 1 unit of raptors, 1 defiler). The fighting in constant night is a real disadvantage for my army and was a plus for my opponent. He was able to corner me under the cover of darkness and eat me alive! The game was a minor loss for me as he wasn't able to claim the objective but completed the secondary objective (kill the messenger). Good game though.

I won "Winner Overall" and "Best Conversion" for my Autarch (Nauhdu Fireheart). I had alot of fun and I will go back to play again. The Club they have there is full of good players and good people, and that is what makes this hobby worth being in.
