Battle Report: vs 2500p Vampire Counts

Hi everyone!

Back from a summer break from blogging. I havent been idle though, been painting a whole lot I will tell you. Anyway yesterday I played a preparation game against a friend of mine, before a comped tournament in two weeks. I thought I would do a battle chronicler report on this one, as I never really done before. It was easier than I thought to do, but I learned some small stuff to improve til next time, but i hope you will enjoy this one anyhow.

So this was what I brought:

Post Tournament & Summer


As my last post pointed out, me and some mates were to an achievement based tournament last weekend. It was a total blast. Never before have I shouted "YES" when my lvl4 got sucked into the warp, as I got the "sucked into the warp" achievement. It really took the edge of the competiveness as people struggled to get achievements at the same time as tyring to play a good game.

There were three types of players there: The gamers, the in-betweens, the achievers. All in all I think everyone had a good time. I most certainly were an in-betweener as I didn't want the battles to be a complete goof-fest. I actually did meet a eshin skaven army with a "triad" - three assassins, led by a vermin lord and a engineer (the ld5 general). You don't see that very often.

In the aftermath I ended on a 7th place and best in race on battle points and around 10th place in achievements. Exactly where I want to be.

All in all I'm even more tempted to do another unit of OnG, as they are hilarious to play. But, I think I will try to do up a unit of skeletons to paint some different colors and maybe something for the 6th edition release tournament here.

Good times

Achievement Based Tournament on Saturday!

Hi Y'all

This weekend me and som mates are going off on a tournament some 400km away on a nice road-trip. The torunament itself is called "Gentlemens Achievements" and is brand new. As the name might suggest, it's a achievement and fair play based tournament with gaming score completely irrelevant for determining the winner. Instead there's a long list of achievements to acquire throughout the games. No restrictions, but some negative achievements for some of the worst stuff. But as noone wins by victory points I think we're set.

It will be a nice change of pace and I think it's good so support new up and coming tournaments in the region. The event will sport around 80 participants split between the two game systems. My list will be my former list, with the addition of snotlings, extra black orcs, extra gobbos, and goblin warboss minus a chariot and orc warboss. Some fun stuff, but also a good opportunity to try out the army as a whole and get to grips with my OnG before the "autumn season" of "regular" warhammer.

It will also give me a chance of trying snotlings without being mocked, ( that much ).

As always, I will try to take pictures. But most of the time I end up taking a bunch of pics the first hour and then getting so caught up in the game and stop taking them.

Oh well. I sure will have a good time this weekend, thats for sure. ( Even better if Sweden beats England on Friday )
