shakhak Posted August 9, 2010 Share Posted August 9, 2010 Sethohman, those Razig minis looked freaking awesome. I loved your spectral minions and your salty dog converstions. I also had a great time in the tournament and the first place trophy looks great on my bookshelf in the living room. I ran a very irritating paper tiger army. Lots of Quick Strike, Magic, and high MAV; but very low DV on all my soldiers. The plan was to use the dragon as a distraction whenever I could. Use the Phase Cat to Swap with whomever is in the best positions. Use the Adrenaline and Burst of Speed combo to gang up on soldier models or to kill wounded Tough models and soft targets. The rest of the army was to work together to take down remaining bits and pieces of the enemy. Darkreach - 999 points Troop 1 Majestrix Latissula, High Priestess Liela Mordollwen, Sorceress Zalash, Assassin Shadowstep Warrior x 6 Musician Troop 2 Evshyvandra Duskwidow Avrix Dirthe, Champion Nightshade Warrior x 2 Shiver Spike Troop 3 Tierdeleira, Priestess Shiver Spike x 3 Troop 4 Aazhaleek, Shadow Dragon Troop 5 Phase Cat Luck Stone My first game was totem trouble against a Reven army. I used Burst of speed to get some units to the totem as quickly as possible. Luck smiled on me with initiative and I got it defiled at the start of the second game while the Shadow Dragon ran distraction. My opponent did something unexpected by abandoning his totem and charging everything he had towards mine. I got a lucky Held spell off which held a few bull orcs back and he only ended up killing a single priest. I wrapped up a 19-1 victory here. The second game was against an amazingly painted Reptus army. I got some lucky shots off at his flyers in the first round, taking out on of the Gaan-Hor. His army was very split up, which allowed me to focus almost all of my force on one half while sacrificing the Phase Cat to distract the other half. So a few buildings took damage, but I was able to put them out and prevent any further damage as the game went on. My opponent here was incredibly cool, despite the defeat. Great game, and a 20-0 victory. The third game was with Lawgiver, and despite what he may tell you, this game was far closer than I would have liked. He ran a Reven swarm army. Every activation forced me to over allocate my units which had me sweating the entire time, thinking that my flank is going to get slammed by his bug bears and bull orcs. Fortunately, he went after the dragon and crossbowmen instead. Varaug was a beast to take down, making more tough checks than I would have liked. The game ended with an 11-8, victory was barely mine. I had a blast and we are still talking about all of the twists and turns of our games in the Tournament. It was awesome and I can't wait until next year, where I get a chance to defend my Gen Con title! Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
