Game Reports 24-26: Very Nice, Great Success

This weekend was the first fully 6th edition tournament at Gamer's Haven, and boy howdy was it fun. There was a pretty decent turnout considering the low numbers that we've been seeing as a result of people still learning 6th. There was a field of 22 players, and surprisingly enough, not a single person brought Grey Knights. Anyway the dice were on my side and I managed to do quite good (taking best general). Here's the story of how it all went down for me...

Game Report 23: The Nommening

Today I got a chance to try out my new double wraithstar list against my good friend Rachel's Tyranids. She is always a ton of fun to play against and at the risk of sounding stereotypical, an amazing painter. Keep reading to see how it all played out... 

List Update: 1850 Double Wraithstar

I keep running into the problem of having my wraithstar die on me early in the game, leaving myself defenseless against late game assaults. Instead of learning to be more conservative with my wraithstar like a smart player should... I decided to go ahead and double down on my investment. Since I have an 1850 point  tournament coming up at Gamer's Haven this weekend I decided that it would be a perfect time to experiment with the double Wraithstar. Read on to find out how the list breaks down:

Game Reports 21-22: I am Disappoint

This weekend I attended a small tournament at Merlyns with relatively poor turnout (5 players) So instead of doing a full tournament report I decided to just do a quick report on the two games I did play (I had a second round bye unfortunately)

Game Report 20: Making Ben Sad

Today I got  in another game against Ben, he's my go to guy if I want to fit in a quick game on a sunday. Before this game we were sitting at a 1-1-1 WLD ratio so this was the tie breaker since we've been tied up the middle. There is a 1250 point tournament coming up next week so we decided that today will be a practice game to test our lists for that tournament. Anyway stay tuned to see how it all turned out.

List update: 1250 Mechrons Efficiency

There is a 1250pt tournament coming up next weekend at one of our local shops, Merlyns. In preperation for this tournament I'm going to get a couple games in over the next week to test the waters for this event but I am feeling pretty confident that this list is going to be the one I am going to be bringing to the tournament...

Game report 19: The Failed Experiment

Sunday I got a game in against Mekel, a local Eldar/ Chaos Marine player. He wanted to play a single detachment 2000 point game, so I decided to bring some toys to experiment with that I haven't brought recently just to see if perhaps I wrote them off too early. Namely I brought barge lords, doomsday arks, and scarabs. All of which I have tried previously and found to be not to my liking. 
Mekel brought his thousand sons with Fateweaver support, this was bound to be an interesting game...
