Default National Warhammer Tournament in NZ, full battle reports

Ok, it's finally done - took me all day, but here is my full NATCON coverage. Table of Contents:

1 - Photos and commentary on about 80% of the players who entered (those who bothered to set up for players choice). My pick went to Dave Dixon.
2 - Vaul vs Phil Petry (Dark Elves)
3 - Vaul vs Reid Pittams (Dark Elves)
4 - Vaul vs Dave Dixon (Vampire Counts)
5 - Vaul vs Nick Buckby (Dark Elves) ...what kind of draw IS this?
6 - Vaul vs Darren Smucar (Chaos Mortals)
7 - Vaul vs Gavin Dodd (Beastmen)
8 - Vaul vs Mike Thorn (Dwarfs)
9 - Interlude: Pictures and commentary from some of the other games that were going on, including the brothers battling for the #1 and #2 spots in the tourney.
10 - Vaul vs Al Rayner (Wood Elves)
11 - A quick reflection on my result.

Click this playlist for all videos start to finish: http://www.youtube.com/view_play_lis...37F2B57E2AA094

Head over to www.youtube.com/user/vaulsc to pick out individual videos and see my other stuff.

Pictured below: It's round #7 and Harry Dixon has drawn his brother, Joe Dixon. Harry is 6-0, Joe is 5-1. Imagine the breakfast table conversation at the motel! In this game, Joe is up a good few hundred victory points and it is coming down to the wire. The dragon is in combat with the archers having just nuked a liche... but with a strong magic phase, harry brings in the prince - impact hits up the ASS!!! Dragon fluffs all rolls for scaly skin, and then fails a break test. Harry takes game 7.... and later... game 8. Most amazing tournament moment, glad to share it with you and capture it on camera.

Turns out the tournament results were wrong. I placed a fair bit higher with a much better sports score, and a few more points on battle than originally announced!

Talkin about it in this video (along with comments about my next army)

Huzzah, more High Elf generals!

I can't wait to see where you go with your High Elves, Vaul. I'm becoming more and more a fan of White Lions myself, so I couldn't agree with you more on sticking with them.

"In the eyes of the Elves of Ulthuan there exists no fear, only grim determination.

Until one has witnessed them in combat, one cannot comprehend the power that they possess."

spellbinding battle reports, vaul, can not wait for your new high elves. what is going to be in the army, or is it a secret and then will have to wait and see

The creatures of the Warp have but one trait with which you need concern yourself - their undying contempt for the Emperor. It is your task to quell the rebellion they preach, and the only sure way is to destroy them utterly.

It'll take me a few games to decide what gear and character configuration i'm going with. but I can tell you that the model lineup will look like this:

- Archmage, lvl2, BSB ...OR Two lvl2 mages, two nobles including one BSB

-Two units of Dragon princes
-Roughly 14 white lions
-Two units of 10 Archers
-2x RBT
-2x Eagles
-2x Chariots

Not sure if i'm getting a second chariot, might go with something else like reavers, or shadow warriors, but 2x chariots is looking very likely at this point.
