Default First-Ever Tourney

Played in my first-ever tournament today, at 1,000 points. Three rounds, I'll get to that in a sec. I wound up 6th place out of 12, with 63/100 points.

My list was:
Farseer with Doom and Fortune
8 Dire Avengers w/Dual Bladestorm
5 Dire Avengers w/P. Weapon Bladestorm
5 Dire Avengers w/Diresword Bladestorm
5 Banshees w/Executioner
Wraithlord w/Shuricannon and Wraithsword
5 Reapers w/Tempest Crack
Falcon w/Shuricannon and Spirit Stones

First Round was an Unprepared Dawn of War Assassination. My Farseer survived, as did my opponent's Winged Daemon Price. Draw match.

Second Round was a Reconnaissance with Low Fog. I nabbed the proper objective on turn one using Falcon+Avengers. Kept it whole game. I won.

Third Round was an Attrition with Dusk on turn 5+. I amassed 10 kill points, he amassed 6. I won.


This was by far the most fun I've ever had with the tabletop. It affirmed for me how much I love this game. I shall be playing for a long time to come.

You can ask about the rules if you don't understand. I'll gladly explain.

Can I ask how these scenario's work? They sound interesting.
I assume though the first is basically kill your opponents HQ though right?

Actually, if you would be so kind as to prepare BatRep and post them here, I am sure it would be much appreciated and you could give a bit more detail on how the scenario works.

[size=1pt]Yeah, I know it's a shameless plug.[/size]

Nice job bro. Sounds like fun.

I just gotta say though... (sorry i feel like telling you off, but all in good fun) you should know this by now you're a vet player...

WHAT IS UP WITH YOUR DIRE AVENGERS?

Their exarchs work best in full squads. Were you just being sporty by putting bladestormers in five-squads?
just curious too.. did your seer have spirit stones with those two wonderful powers and you just forgot to post it?

Nope, points didn't allow, and I took three squads for splitting up. Bladestorm was sort of wasted on the melee exarch squads, but I did use it with one of them during the objective mission.

And as for a battle report, I'm afraid I can't do anything detailed - all I can do is explain what the missions are. I can't remember half of what happened, just the good parts.

Edit: I put up a Battle Report, but it's not very detailed. http://forums.tauonline.org/index.ph...c,91382.0.html

Formatting eludes me.
