This past Saturday was a 1,500 40K tournament at my FLGS. It was a food drive and so you brought in canned goods and non-perishables to get in-game abilities like re-rolls, +1 strength, etc. I played Disciples of Twilight, my Chaos Marines, using this list: http://cmdctr.net/lists/disciples-of-twilight-1500-mech/. Last week I explained the idea behind the list.
Last night I finally got in my first game in 6th edition and I have to say that I like it. I figured I would, as I liked what I was reading, but experience can alter your perception. Thankfully it just reaffirmed my interest in this newest edition.
Our FLGS is holding a team tournament in July and on Wednesday myself and Kamui got in a practice game against Spectre Senence and Spectre Foreman. The tournament is over a month out but Kamui doesn’t manage to get to the shop very often at all, so we’ll practice as he can manage to make it even if it’s for an event 6-weeks out.
The tournament is 2K per-team, 1K per-player, with each player having to take their compulsory choices and then sharing the rest of the FoC. For this I’m playing Fate’s Angels, my Vanilla Marines, and Kamui is playing Space Wolves. I’m not going to detail our list. Not out of fear of other teams seeing it but because it would be a pain in the ass :) The short of it is that it features 7 Drop Pods. The Pods are loaded with Grey Hunters and two Dreadnoughts, and a spare for Long Fangs. I also have Fate Lord Monthu (aka: Shrike), with Assault Marines (ASM), and two squads of Scouts; one sniper variety and one close combat with a Storm.
Next month a bunch of us from my FLGS will be traveling to Massachusetts for a team tournament hosted by the Dorkamorka club. It’s a 2K team tournament, so 1K per-player. Each player has the normal compulsory choices and then, basically, share the rest of the force org.
This is a Spectre Studio’s different style video Battle Report by Spectre Senence. What’s the change? Well I have played this hobby awhile and I enjoy playing with a fun personality into my armies. This stems from decades as a Dungeon Master. So I decided I want to improve the entertaining value of Spectre Studio’s battle reports without sacrificing too much content so they hold no tactica value. So the attempt is to infused some of my crazy concepts into the armies I play while filming these BatReps.
In preparation for next month’s tournament we all got in some practice at my FLGS. I’ve decided to run my Orks for the event just to change it up from my routine. The list I was testing is here: http://cmdctr.net/lists/796.
I’m trying to take a new approach to my Chaos lists. At this point I’m over the honeymoon stage where I feel compelled to throw down all sorts of different stuff to learn about the army. That’s not to say there aren’t still units I want to test out, still plenty of those, but that I’m comfortable with the army now at least. So on Wednesday when I got to play I brought along this list: http://cmdctr.net/lists/712. I was planning on an 1,850 game so I threw in the Havocs to make points, it was quick and easy.
Thus far my Chaos Marines, Disciples of Twilight, have had a really strong showing in the handful of games I’ve managed with them. By far the best start, win/loss ratio, I’ve had with any army. Part of that I feel is honestly because nobody plays them at my FLGS with regularity. Players are on a bit of a learning curve when across from them. Once people become more accustomed to them the harder it will be for me.
After another night of working on terrain as we prepare for The Standish Standoff, I got in a practice game for the event. Last week I also got in a practice game but I decided to completely overhaul my list. My previous list was more assault oriented, utilizing Fate Lord Monthu (aka: Shrike), and the list I brought last night was a much more balanced list. As with last week I’m not giving out my list. I’d hate for all the players at my FLGS to decide to build lists to counter mine ;)
Last night I played two 1,850 games with Chaos. My first opponent was playing vanilla Marines with a Legion of the Damned army using Vulkan. He, at the recommendation of another player, was trying out Tigurius. He list featured three Drop Pods, two full of Tacts and one with Sternguard who were joined by Vulkan and Tigurius. He also had two full Legion squads. Naturally the entire list was melta heavy.
Last week I didn’t get up a Road to Glory report but it was a thorough spanking and wasn’t a ton to go over. I was tabled by turn five by a great Tyranid player. That made this Wednesday night the final game and the way the campaign works it was the game that decided it all. Despite being thrashed consistently every week, the Imperium could still win the campaign.
Wednesday night I got in a game against Blood Angels, an army I routinely have problems dealing with effectively. We ran a 2,500 game to try to work out some ‘ard Boyz ideas. Here’s the list I put together.
This month will be a team tournament at my FLGS so last night we opted to play a team game to get ready. As usual I took Fate’s Angels, my Marines, lead by Fate Lord Monthu (counts-as Shrike). Here’s the list I ran:
This month we began what will become a monthly routine at the LGS with the first 40K night of the month being Apocalypse. I had reservations about this because I’ve only played a handful of times, the first time being not fun at all and really putting me off. The second time wasn’t so bad but still not all that much fun.
