Here I am in my first match against Michael getting my derriere given to me on a platter. It was a was either a major victory or a massacre, I truly can’t remember but I learned a lot and got an idea from his army (more on that later).
Here we are on day two. You can see my half painted army in the bottom left.
At the end of the tournament, I had 1 loss, 1 draw, and 2 wins. Very fun and very informative. Thanks again, Will, and everyone over there at HobbyTown. It was great seeing everyone and getting to test out my new list.
So playing in my first game I came up against a player with lots of Daemon Spawn. Freaking toughness 6 spawn. I had never gone up against such things and the way they were modeled (Fantasy dryads ripping out of the backs of Ogryns) was plainly just ridiculous (in a good way).
So I think I’m gonna try my hand at a little conversion and kit-bashing again. The idea behind my Sister of Battle with IG allies army is that they are all females (event Jacobus has been converted) so I just picked up a box of Warhammer Fantasy Orges and, that’s right, I’m gonna put gas masks and boobs on them. On top on that, I’m gonna try to put some Ork weapons on the fantasy models as the guns the Orks use are essentially stolen anyways; this will be a bit of Ogryn payback.
I mean… They already have moobs, how far of a stretch is this gonna be?
I may have spoke too soon…
It was 1750 points. I brought my Sister of Battle and Learned a lot!
My first match was against Necrons. What I learned was that I need some Anti Air units on the ground. Rolling solo SoB w/o allies seems to have been a bad choice against flyers.
First match results: 8-1 in my favor
My second and third matches were a different story. I still learned a lot but I got trounced!
My second battle was a mirror match against another Sisters of Battle player… only he brought friends in the form of about 500 points of blob Imperial Guard and a Master of Ordinance. I also got my initiative seized and thusly 3 Exorcists and an orbital bombardment later I was 2 exorcists, and a Saint Celestine down.
Second match results: 0-10 in my opponents favor
Finally, my third match ended closely in points. I fought an Ork army, again aligned with IG. (lolwat)
I took out his Manticore with what looked like Whirlwing Missles on turn 1 with my exorcists and then got bogged down with 4 of my units assaulting his first troop of 29 boys, 1 nob and 1 Weird Boy.
It took so long to get through that troop of boys and it was already 5 hours after when the tourney was supposed to end so we called it after 3 turns and counted up points.
Third match results: 4-6 in my opponents favor.
I would have liked to get more pictures but I forgot to take any on my first game and my battery died in my phone by the end of the 2nd game so nothing of my third. 🙁
All in all I had a lot of fun and I look forward to doing more tournaments this year.
Wish me luck!
