Adepticon 2012 Friday
Adepticon 2012 Friday.
Well we arrived Friday early and looked around at vendors on the way in. Getting ready for the 1,000 pt tournament was a treat because I only had 1 practice game with my Night Goblin army.
List: I ended up taking a general, level 1, bsb, 60 night goblins with the poison banner, fanatics, and nets. A mangler, 2 doom divers, 2 bolt throwers, troll, and a chariot. This allows me to deploy more to once side but still threaten armies with a chariot and bolt throwers in their flanks.
Game 1 I played for my first opponent Jake Murphy. A previous opponent from Invasion of Kenosha in 2011. He had his brets with 2 lances and only 3 pegs. A simple list but one that can use point denial and swift charges to his advantage. A bad deployment kept my doom divers from hitting him turn one because I couldn't see him, scenario special rule. Later on I proved to almost destroy 2 units, but breaking from his main lance after 2 other stubborn checks, and then the 3rd I lost. He went onto to win Best General for the AM tournament.
Game 2 The second game for the AM 1k tournament, fortitude, went against a Warriors of Chaos player who only had a general. I off set my deployment and shot and threw manglers into the generals unit. He cast the unit deleting spell at my unit 3 times and getting it off once but not having a successful 11 or 12 roll for the second roll. The game ended early at around turn 3 but he knew that he had to move fast and try and roll it. Luckily I had a dispel scroll and luck on my hand side and got my mangler, poison bows, fanatics, chariot, and doom diver
Game 3 went to an Orc and Goblin General who lost due to special rules dealing electrical damage to random units. He did take 1 giant, 1 unit of wolf riders, and a unit of Night Goblins. I did a typical shoot and stand back until I had to charge, a win for the night goblins.
Later I'll post my Saturday and Sunday Champs and TT coverage!
