|MWR 9 Awards Sunday night!|
I took a Warrior of Chaos Army to this Tournament with the following. Tz lvl 4 and Tz BSB both mounted and 3+ Ward save kits, Throgg + 8 Trolls, 3 Dragon Ogres, 6 Nurgle Ogres, 3x5 Chaos Hounsd, 18 Chaos Warriors, 1 Nurgle Chariot, 1 Hellcannon, 2x3 Skullcrushers. No Demon prince and no Chimera but plenty of tougher things to make people think. I went 5-0 and got best painted. I really feel that I had luck in each game and it wasn't because of the list, however having 2 hard to kill characters is a little cheesy but not super cheesy.

Game 1 Meeting Engagement vs. William Fergis: DoC Khorne
|Turn 1 Deployment against Ferg. He is defensively setting up giving me offensive chance!|
Game 2 versus Paul Vinton: Skaven: Fortitude Scenario
|Paul reviewing battlepoints. This is Turn 1 setup as you can see the scouts in the middle of the battlefield and his backfield gunline deployment...poor chaos|
This game was going to prove interesting. Paul had taken multiple casters(3 Magic Missles a turn), 2 doom wheels, 2 laser cannons, 3 poison scouting units, and multiple blocks of skaven slave bunkers. This first turn I started to worry. He killed several 2 ogres, 1 dragon ogre, 8 Warriors, wounded the chariot once, and killed a Skullcrusher. So I huffed it and moved into offensive positions and charged units on the flanks. I took out 2 units of scouts and did 4/5 Wounds to a doom wheel early on but didn't catch the wheel, it later proved to just rally and bounce around in the backfield before I killed it Turn 5. However, my break came turn 3 when his general skitterleaped into the middle of the table and IF then lost the spell leaving him all alone. Paul failed a march block allowing me to charge and kill him. He was trying to cast a radious damage spell but I dispelled it. With no level 4 and a 500 pt swing my way it started down hill after that and paul had hit his breaking point. His warmachines had bad dice in the later turns of 3-4, even with flanks shots, another lucky win.
Game 3 versus Robert Elmer's Nurgle themed Ogres Kingdoms: Control the Tower
|Robert Elmer's Fully converted Nurgle Ogre Kingdom Army, well done.|
Game 4: vs. Jake Murphy Dark Elves Dawn Attack
|Jake Murphy's Dark Elves, nice lava.|
Well Setup again played a major part, Jake had all but executioners and a level 2 fire deployed in one corner of the board.(which I ignored), his right corner(my left flank) saw a Cauldron, level 4, 40 Whitch Elf horde, Klauderhiss, 10 Cold ones, BSB, 12 RBT, and 1 Bolt thrower. I had on my left flank to right, SK, Hounds, Dragon Ogres, BSB, Ogres, General, Warriors, and then in my right corner hellcannon, throgg, and skullcrushers. My strategy had ot be delayed. Jake went first but I was lucky enough to hold with just a couple hounds in each unit after alot of shooting. I pinned his center and right flank forcing him to charge his cauldron out into my crushers turn 2 --> then off the table. however I was in combat with fast cav and then his monster and then his cold ones/BSB for another 3 turns delaying everything. I was fleeing with my dragon ogres and hounds unit my Right flank skull crushers got into the frey with the cauldron killing it. My lvl 4 ate through the cold ones and eventually into his mage killing him. the last turn my unkillable lord saved 12 wounds from bolt throwers and Crossbows. Pretty crazy. if that wouldn't have happened I would have tied wit Jake(and been happy with that.) based on deployment I had slim chances he just had to much and I was spread thin.
Game 5: my first game versus Alex Gonzalez and his Skarsnik Horde!
|Turn 1 movement saw my line advancing. Trying to avoid the fanatics and Manglers was first on the list.|
|Throgg and a chariot broke through the fanatics, however the trolls and goblin chariot countercharged, held on a 2 and then my Skullcrushers and Ogres flank charge the goblin chariot and River trolls for the win.|
