Hey guys, this weekend I went to an unusual RT at Blobs Park (Beer Garden!) in Jessup MD Oh yeah.. it was awesome. Long.... but awesome. I got there at 8 am for dice down at 9 am and finished (after 4 games) at 11 pm. In between matches it was Beer and Bratworst for $5. Awesome time.

I fielded my Nurgle Force with some models that hadn't seen the light of day since 4th edition, I was looking for some change.
List was something like this:

Fist game I played against mechanized guard. There were many chimeras, 2 big tanks and a Valk. He basically turtled in a corner and hammered me for 2.5 hours. I stuck to my game plan and captured 3 table quarters, 3 objectives (including main) contested one of his and won the game. I was only able to kill about 600 points of his army, while loosing over 1500 of mine .. but, I won. :grin:

This was a mistake. I should have thrown the first game. :laugh:

My second game I went against a nice guy with a fabulous army of Egyptian Themed 1000 Sons. Briefly, there were 2 Flying Tzeentch Daemon Princes, a Greater Daemon, 3 CC Dreadnoughts, 2 Defilers, 3 Oblits, a big squad of 1000 sons (14?) and 2 small (5 man) squads in rhinos. (ish)

On round 2 I knew I was in trouble. I had used the "denied flank" tactic to try to focus my firepower and tried to seize the initiative but failed... it wasn't enough. I only had about 2 turns of shooting to before the wall hit.
I brought the Daemon Princes each down to 1 wound but couldn't finish them. I destroyed one of the Defilers and a rhino. He wiped me off the board. It took 6 turns.. but ... "tabled me".

My third game I played against Eldar in a straight victory points game. The game went back and forth several times. The combination of "Doom" and Blade Storm is nasty. My Raptors wiped out a couple of his squads but ultimately he "Doomed" them and the entire army shot at them for a turn, leaving the Sorcerer with 1 would remaining. The sorcerer flew off and murdered another squad before he was finally shot down too. It was a close game but I ultimately lost on Victory Points.

My fourth game I played against Tau. Yeah, 4 different armys!
He had Hammerhead with Rail Gun, Hammerhead with Ion Cannon, 3 Broadsides, 2 teams of suits, commander in suit, squad with marker lights, squad of Kroot with hounds, 2 squads of mounted fire warriors. Another close match. I was able to get my Raptors into close combat on turn 2. Very close.. but I made it. I murdered the marker light squad. I then lost about 2/3 of the squad due to shooting. The next turn I summoned a squad of daemons to deal with a beat up squad of the suits and charged the Sorcerer and remaining raptors into a second squad of suits with command. Killed the commander and his squad and then got gunned down. But... this game me enough time I position my army and score points. End of the game we each had 3 troops in the others deployment zone (primary objective). He scored 1127 Victory Points. I scored 1170 Victory Points. I technically won... as there were "no draws allowed". Crazy.

All in all it was a great event with good guys and fantastic prize support.

I'm thinkiing of pushing my army in an Undivided direction.
