- 40k Team Tournament (right now)
- Warhammer Team Tournament (Tuesday)
- Cool 40k Armies (Thursday)
I found out that I ended up placing 8th overall in the first day of the 40k Championships. That really made my day - so close to getting the top spot, another win would have probably done it!
Now on to the team tournament coverage. We started out early (6:30 am) to begin judging. Unfortunately we didn't get judged until right up until the start of the tournament so I didn't get the chance to look around and take pictures. That is one of my favorite parts of the tournament so I think next year I'm going to volunteer to judge. I've done every Adepticon and it's about time I give back on my favorite event.

Back to the coverage! We set up the massive diorama. On the left side (left as you're looking at it) was Chicago Kamikaze's Team Yellow. On the right was our Team Red. In the middle of the coliseum we split the sides down the center. Here's some shots of setup and it finally together.
For "Team Red", Jeff's army was primary green, Aaron's was primary purple, Matt's was primary red and obviously mine was primary silver. We had some hellion races going around our side of the board and underneath it. The race doesn't stop for a civil war!

For the games, my pairing ended up basically getting a tie every round. I don't know what the deal was but we just had a hard time getting full points. We always either got the primary or secondary objective but never both. As the previous day, we got 3 Grey knights players. That meant that between both days and 8 games of 40k, I went against 5 Grey Knights players, 2 marines and 1 ork. I guess if you can't beat them, join them (yeah I'm putting together GK's this week for NOVA).
Here's a shot from the first round. My beasts coming out of the webway was a constant threat and I never had an issue getting the portal out. I really want to now take a look at doing a portal hybrid list. I think it would do well. Our first round had 3 storm ravens. My partner had the heavy wytch list so we tried to surround and assault the vehicles. It worked once and killed all the passengers.
|so close, just got a weapon destroyed!|
|I love this display board, clean and very Necron|
|It's a trippy Necron yellow brick road. I love the surreal backdrop!|
|The great themed team from Montreal! They never fail to disappoint.|
|As usual they had great propaganda. I love the pamplets.|
