so first up, well done to the kiwis at the etc, who cares where we placed at the end, we beat the aussies! great job in particular to our lot over there

now whats all this brief 13,00 business? well, 12,800 pts to be exact, woc vs empire. i thought itd be fun to get all the woc out and add it up for the first time in ages, and it came to 6400pts. idea was it was to celebrate getting it all painted (or close enough). i used literally everything i had, bar one wizard.

heres my spells:

note no gateway or treason. gulp. heres the empires million spells

getting all the good uns. nice. we alternated deployment, and it looked like this

and i get the first turn. heres what weve got going on

chosen unit here with daemonblade lord rolled +1 attack pregame, before i learnt you can actually throw 4 dice at it if the shrine is in range. note the empire wizard bunker behind the hellblaster. if only i can get to it

so a pretty daunting proposition. i move up to strike next turn in the centre with disclord, giant ben, and a chim. get a final trans onto the big knight unit but miss all the characters and only kill 5 knights

i try for a purple sun from ol rotbeard, but it falls short

in return, giant ben is hellblastered, then cannoned to death. chim is shems off. disclord surives two banishments with no wounds, but rolls a 2 for his ward vs a cannon shot and dies. other than that, not much moving from the empire.

heres what it looks like at the end of my 2, where not much happens, other than i push the remainder forward. rotbeard leaps out for a big psun, but fails an if and gets scrolled

turn 2, and more magic and shooting from the empire, rotbeard is banished off, chariots die to cannon shots, and theres some chaffing

gets a boosted savage beasts too

but leaves a tasty flank here. khorne warriors lose 12 to a hellblaster

my 3 we get some charges going with whats left. chariots into demis, crushers into stank, warriors into knights.

chosen and chim set up in the centre, waiting for savage beasts to go away

chariots and crushers grind for a while, but warriors win against knights by combat res, and send em fleeing on an epic angle off the board through his luminark and hurricanum

both of which panic of the board. yeah! take that. in the empire turn i eventually lose the chariots and crushers, and ofc the warriors, after a stank runs em over.

knights back up, and last chim gets shemzd

here the cannons continue to take wounds off the hellcannon

bit of a shit show really now, but the forsaken get into a halberd block, killing blow all the characters, and then die too.

knights get stuck on some swordsmen, and then all die once the stank somehow gets in

knights fail into chosen

chosen make it in and kill a handful

but then lose and get run down later

here you can see ive some marauders in a building, along with tz warriors and a bsb left, along with my warshrine. oh dear.

so that went about as well as i thought it would after i saw the empire list, but there you go. didnt need all those state troops after all lol.

it wasnt long before i was demanding a rematch, turns out i have more dark elves than i do woc, so keep your eyes peeled for a 15000 game soon.

other than that, been keeping a pretty low gaming profile, next tourney isnt till axemaster, and im still deciding on a list. been slowly but surely getting through basecoating those high elves,

still a bit of gold to do, but still treating it as a buffet and working on silver helms atm.
so there we have it, stay tuned for more soon!
