This weekend just gone I had the pleasure of attending one of the larger Warhammer Tournaments in Scotland.
It ended up with 34 players in total, with three games played.
I took my Dwarves, as I usually do to Warhammer tournaments, and through some very good fortune managed to win my first two games, the first a 15-5, the second a 14-6, placing me on table 4 in the last game, and facing the Scottish Teams Skaven player... that game I promptly lose 18-2.
Overall this gave me a respectable 16th place.
As with all games you play infrequently I made some silly tactical errors in all the games, which cost me valuable victory points, however this tournament has rekindled my interest in Warhammer, and the unfinished Skaven army on my shelves may even get some love in the next few months.
With the upcoming release of 6th Ed, I imagine that most of my posts will be 40k related, but its good to remember the other games you play as well.
So three more battles to add to the Book of Grudges, with a certain Skaven Warlords name high on the list of things to hunt down!
For those curious the list I took is present below:
Dwarf Lord; General, Shield Bearers, Runic Armour, Preservation, Resistance, Runic Weapon, Rune of Might, Fury & Master Rune of Swiftness, Runic Talisman, Master Rune of Challenge.
Dwarf Rune Lord, Runic Talisman, Master Rune of Balance, Rune of Spell Breaking x 2.
Dwarf Thane, BsB, Runic Standard, Rune of Gaurding, Rune of Warding
Longbeards, 40, Full Command, Shield, Runic Standard, Rune of Courage & Rune of Determination
Hammerers, 40, Full COmmand, Runic Standard, Rune of Grungi (or as one of my opponents called it the Gungan Bubble).
Cannon, Rune of Forging, Rune of Burning
Cannon, Rune of Burning
Total 2400 points.
