Hello and welcome to Game Night! As usual this is going up a bit later than planned, but who cares? It's all for fun anyway! Also, I totally intend to do a Monday Morning Gamer post tomorrow so there will be plenty to read for you this week!
Right, so what do I have planned for today? Mostly I will be talking about a tournament I went to last Saturday. Also, I will talk about how I'd would do a Necron army if I were to start Necrons (I'm not, but it's fun to dream!). And I'll leave it at that for now. I don't want to use up all my blogging energy before I even start writing MMG!
First things first:
Fantasy Doubles Tournament:
Last Saturday a group of mates and myself went to a Fantasy doubles tournament. Very simple, nothing too big, but a lot of fun! The rules were pretty simple: each team would make 2 seperate 600 pts armies, with at least 1 Character and 1 other non-character unit in each. They would remain completely seperate armies, so characters couldn't join each other's unit, certain spells and psychology didn't affect each other, etc. The only exception was that both Inspiring Presence and Hold Your Ground did affect both armies. You had one overall general and could only have one BSB.
Scenarios were simple. We played three Battleline scenarios, with the only difference between the battles being the shape of the deployment zone.
So, easy and straightforward. 600 pts meant it was very hard to create really powerful units and all the scenarios were simple and didn't really favour any army over any others. We were allowed to use any combination of armies together, so I was looking forward to seeing what devious combinations our opponents had come up with.
Turns out, not so devious...
Here the list my mate and I took:
3x Warlock Engineer, level 1
26 Stormvermin, shield, full command
50 Slaves, shield, Musician
Warp Lightning Cannon
