...yea, you were no help.
Well, the 1500pt. level tournament was yesterday. I don't know the final results; I'm either 3rd or 4th place, with 3 major wins and 1 major loss on the day. Evil Homer and his mech guard is either 2nd or 3rd place, with the same score but posting two more victory points. Unless the last game turned out much different than expected, Little Barrera knocked it out of the park with his mech Space Wolves. His army was the one that handed both myself and Evil Homer our only loss.
He kicked my ass sooooo bad. I got a bit complacent this month, I think, coming off a good tournament win last month. I took a list dominated by my new Bloodthirster and Great Unclean One. Problem is, I gave up too much to do it. I'll do a more in depth analysis later today or tomorrow, but I'll say that the Bloodthirster never came close to earning his points in any of the 4 games: he was just too tempting a target, and my opponents did everything necessary to kill him the moment he hit the board.
The Great Unclean One was a good workhorse, soaking up fire like nobody's business before finally falling, riddled with missile launcher holes. The difference is, he was 160pts compared to the 'thirster's 290....
Yea, I foolishly invested in the extra strength and Death Strike, so let that be a lesson: don't over invest in wargear.
Anyway, a good tournament, a good lesson. The best match of the day may have been Evil Homer Vs Little Barrera, Mech Guard Vs Mech Wolves. It was razor close: a good 5E match. Hopefully Evil Homer will tell us a bit about it.
