Well runefang has been and gone and i have to say i had 5 great games of warhammer against 5 great opponents.
My resuilts went:
Game 1 Vs Orge Kingdoms: 10-10 draw, I mucked up my deployment badly and am disappointed that this game wasnt a win. I dont think i would have won this game by much because Graeme played a good game but think i could have got an 11 or 12 out of it.
Game 2 Vs Orcs and Goblins: 10-10 draw again, Not much to say about this game apart from Ben could guess distance with his rock lobbers like a god, both blowing up on turn 3 was very fortunate for me.
Game 3 Vs Vampire Counts: 13-7 a win, this game was very much a stand off. One unit of Knights chasing wraiths around one side of the table. Other side things eyed each other up for 4 turns. Last 2 turns i got my points from taking out all his Zombies and Skeletons.
Game 4 Vs Lizardmen: 7-13 a loss, first turn both fast cav units cant kill a terradon with their throwing axes and the accompanying sorcerers fail to kill any as well next turn the 3 terradons take out a unit of fast cav which annoyed me. Last turn of the game knights cut sick on the temple guard with slaan and scar-vet in the unit, My bsb in the knights kills the scar-vet the knights kill about 7 temple guard which left 1 who because of the slann was was stubborn and past his break test. If i had killed the last temple guard it would have got me just under 1000pt which would have given me a 13 of 14 win.
game 5 Vs Woodelves: 7-13 a loss again, the worst match up for my army. I think i played a good game but dont think i was aggressive enough, i was eying 10 Bp to make it fifty for the tournament. Made one mistake by moving my line of warriors more than 6 inches from the side of the table they were guarding and his wildriders snuck though for a charge which cost me 330 or so points.
I enjoyed the Tourniment and was very happy with my placing of 11th (yay for soft scores). If i had won game 4 instead of the loss i would have missed the woodelves, probably would have been a harder army but almost any thing would have been better that woodies.
Finished 2nd of these this morning. Quite useful for running small squads equipped with Blight Launchers up the board quickly
