I arrived on Thursday morning just in time to play in the AM 1,000 point 'How You Use It' tournament. Feeling mostly lazy I played the same lists I did last year for the 1k's except switched which event they were in. So for the AM I took a filthy Skaven list as below:
Greyseer - All Ruin
Chieftan - BSB
Engineer - Doomrocket
2x5 Giant Rats w/1 Packmaster Each
34 Slaves - Musician
33 Clanrats - FC
5 Gutter Runners - Poison, Slings
Hellpit Abomination - Warpstone Spikes
Scenario 1: Line 'em Up
Special Rules: Unstoppable Force
Each unit with at least 20 Infantry/Warbeasts or 6 Cavalry/Swarm models gains Devastating Charge.
Paladin - Warhorse, Shield, Virtue of Heroism, Gromril Great Helm, Sword of Swiftslaying, Dragonbane Gem
Paladin - BSB, Warhorse, Grail Vow, Grail Shield, Luckstone
Paladin - Warhorse, Lance, Shield, Dragonhelm, Dawnstone
9 Knights of the Realm - FC, Lichbone Penant
3 Pegasus Knights - Champ, Musician
10 Peasant Bowmen - FC, Braziers
Scenario 2: He Who Fights and Runs Away
Special Rules: All units with a Standard or BSB gain 'Feigned Flight' ability.
Runesmith - Master Rune of Balance, Rune of Spellbreaking
Engineer - Rune of Speed
220 Hammerers - FC
Cannon - Rune of Forging
Grudge Thrower - Rune of Accuracy
I really loved the look of this army. The owner took the time to paint or print out labels for every Hammerer and turn all of their hammers into kegs of different beers. The Thunderers are all shooting labeled bottles of beer and though it isn't in this picture his Championship display board was built atop a Keg-arator with a working Beer Tap in it. Fantastic! Unfortunately my army was almost tailor made to eat this style of army and though he did kill the Abomination with a Grudge Thrower hit, it proved his only solace as I then took him down to only a Runesmith left by the end of the game.
Game 3: Glory to the Brave
Special Rules: Fortitude and Breaking Point
Beastlord - Crown of Command, Ramhorn Helm, Gnarled Hide, Heavy Armor, Shield
Bray Shaman - Level 1, Dispel Scroll
Wargor - BSB, Heavy Armor, Shield, Great Weapon
15 Gor - Extra Hand Weapon, FC
14 Gor - Extra Hand Weapon, FC
10 Ungor - Musician
2 Tuskagor Chariot
Had I not lost my 1st game I feel pretty confident that I would've won this tournament as I ended up 4th overall with only a 4 point separation between myself and 1st place. Damn. So close!!!! Keep an eye on the blog in the near future to see my wrap up of the PM 1,000 point tournament as well as the Team Tournament.
Thanks for reading!
