She and I have played a few team games with friends locally and had a blast.
So logically, we assumed (and rightly so) that a tournament based around team gaming would be a great way to spend a day.
This was touted as a 'Hobby oriented' tournament, so we were hoping we'd see none of the WAAC (Win at all costs) army lists and more fluff or story based lists.
For the most part we just saw what people would normally bring to a tournament. Which is to say a good mixture of both.
In some cases, however, there were some really funny combinations and/or stories much like Team Twilight:
That's right, Space Wolves and Blood Angels, Wolves and Vampires, working together.
I don't know what's up with the statues, whether they have some story significance, or if they were just there for objectives or coolness factor, but they look neat. Again, any chance to poke fun at the Twilight phenomenon I'll take.
I dug the mounted Orcs/Wolves gang. Obviously a tough army, but the theme worked together well.
There were 2 guys who had met in college that brought a joint White Scars army.
I also really enjoyed the idea of a parent and successor chapter joint force.
And who can go wrong with Space Wolves.
Hmm. Those all seem to be marine armies. I've really got to try harder to embrace the Xenos.
Well, there was a great looking Eldar/Nid force.
We did face 2 gents from Lubbock (although 1 lives in Amarillo now) who played necrons. Wish I'd gotten a better picture or three of their army but I posted the only 1 we took in yesterday's blog. Had a great time playing them and it was a very close game.
I guess I really don't have too much to grouse about. The only army I thought was really over the top personally was the twin lash-prince chaos army with 2 defilers that ran with the Blood angel jump pack troopers who brought 2 Vindicators.
And to be honest, we played those guys and we won that game. Just goes to show that having the right toys, nasty as they are or can be, doesn't help as much as using what you have properly.
