I'm not a great report writer. but I will give it a go.
I had 2 lists at my disposal:
@ David: most army's that entered had elite units. I had 2 options
Duskborn Chieftain 77
Feral Hammerfist 38
3x3 brutes 150
Obsidian Nightmare 73
Mask of Dusk
5 Brutes 80
5 Longshadows 115
I only played list one.
Third battle I really had doubts to use the second list. but since the battle was fun based I chose for more fun.
Battle one: Trogs vs Mortans (David)
6 Praetorian Carnifexers
Plan in my mind. Take as much advantage from the terrain for cover and line of site. All the playing tables were pact with terrain (Great job Jens) . object was to lure the Carnifexers out of there position with the war machines. I love when my plans come out. the Carnifexers moved towards a unit of Brutes that were starting to get closer on the left side, leaving the rest of the Brutes in cover at the centre and on the right side.
The Lighteater provided cover for himself and the Hammerfist so they could pin down the characters and the Carnifexers. if any of those Mortan models charge, they get counter charged bye a whole lot of trouble.
So that was not what happened. charging the Carnifexers with a unit brutes killed a few models but was not enough to kill them all. so a second unit also charged in. killing the left over Carnifexers meanwhile engaging the Necromagus. once this was over the battle was a cleanup mission.
killing every model got my a victory with 300 killing points. self losing 32points (I think)
Second battle was a against a army I know. Nick (Mortans)
6 Legio Mortum
6 Legio Mortum
Plan => try to lure a Moloch out of the formation and kill it. If he stayed in formation my plan was to avoid his army and draw. I was the only player winning the first round so I could afford a draw. I had to win the 3th game to win. This said, and this was what happened. he was not foolish enough to break formation an staid put in a corner. I tried to lure him with a few models but he did not run in the trap. so the battle ended in a draw.
Last battle was vs Bram (Nordguard)
(6?) Fjell warriors
Same tactic like always.
The Bloodvrag and the Chainslayer
where trying to come to my flank. This known I focused my army on those 2 models. distracting the other part of the Nordguard with one unit of brutes and a Lighteater. The Chainslayer was placed behind a building not in lighn of side of inde unit brutes in charge range a other unit of Brutes were on the other side of the building. Bram had his Bloodvrag in charge position if I decided to charge with the unit within line of side. I solved this problem bye activating my warlord giving the brutes behind the building +1act and Rage. the Unit moved 3 times engaging the Chainslayer having act enough to attack once.
almost killing the Chaynslayer. (the die were not on my side). he charged with the Bloodvrag killing one Brute but within charge range of my second unit of Brutes. Those brutes finished the 2 in the charge action. After reforming and getting in position to charge the 2 other units I charged the Fjell warriors. Meanwhile pinning down the Einherjer with 3 potential chargers on deferent sides. 2 models of the warriors were killed bye the charge.
Next turn I would finish the rest of the Nordguard. And then it happened.....
Turn 6 was cancelled du to the fact that my opponent had to leave.
So that is what happened => few points short of victory but this was a fun tournament. so no forfeit
This leaving me on the 2end place in the ranking.
It was a great day. I am glad to see that the level of play in our club is getting better and better. Thx to Jens who organised this tournament and to the people of the board for the coffee and cake. And to megalith for there game and all what they have done.
