THRONE OF SKULLS REPORT!
Sadly I was unable to make a very competitive list with the models available so I took my friendly list relying on the ladder system to balance it out, but they've dropped it for an all random system which forced my not so competitive list to stuggle. Not to mention I was plagued by bad luck on Saturday.
Game 1 Vs Necrons
(Lots or Warriors, Lords and a Monolith) Close lost but a lot of fun.
Game 2 Vs Necron (Barges and Long Ranged stuff + Doomsythe)
Masscared, shot me up from a distance and plagued by bad luck rolling double 1 for a point blank melta shot on the flyer!
Game 3 Vs Grey Knights:
Once again bad dice rolls but nearly grabbed victory periled my terminators and interceptors with psyshock missile from his storm raven.
Game 4 Vs Grey Knights: (20 Terminators, 2 Dreads and Inquisitor)
Won thanks to my plasma cannons, dude wouldn't walk his terminators into range which allowed me to weather him down from a distance. Good Game!
Game 5 Vs New Dark Angels (with Bellal and Knights):
Tabled Victory thanks to Coteaz and his Dividnation powers ie forced re-rolling of saves, new terminators are very nasty thou.
Game 4 with a strong defensive line and Plasma Cannons on the high ground nasty!
Problem is there is no ladder system anymore, it's all randomly drawn so I was fighting players with all wins on GAME 2,3 & 4. They said it was dropped so they can avoid arguments amongst very VERY competitive players on the top tables.
They should at least have a top and bottom half otherwise you need to have a very competitive list in case you dealt against a skilled opponents.
My army was nominated for Best Army and competition was tough as there was no real clear winner as every army was getting a lot of attention, but in the end character and bizzare appearance won it for the 'Mexican Orks'
A BREAK FROM THE FORGES OF PROSPERO
With Throne Of Skulls now done I was tempted to begin work on the 2nd Expansion consisting of...
A Sorcerer (Rune Priest),
Pyrae Robots in Drop Pod (Wolf Guard Terminators),
Recon Squad (5 Grey Hunters),
5 Devastators (Long Fangs),
& maybe some Land Speeders (FW Jetbikes)
But with two different variants of the army to play I've decided to take a short break from my thousand sons for a while, I'll instead be focusing on my other project The Grot Rebellion
who have been out of action since 6th edition. I'll likely be repainting or at least redoing some of the details on the existing units with what I've learned during this project, I'll post a link on this thread when I start the new log.
But do keep an eye on this log as I will be uploading small editions to the Thousand Sons whilst working on the grots. Till then check out the army's completed codex cover by Beata Kurkul
