The Results Are In

Belated posting, been busy with work and life. Let's get things back on track.

This past Sunday I held my third 40K Tournament. It did well, we got 12 players. The scenario was  Maelstrom of War: Tactical Escalation. Here are the results;

  1. Jack Lambourne, Tzeentch Daemons. 3 wins, 46 points
  2. Ian Atrill, Orks. 3 wins, 32 points
  3. Mike Pooley, Necrons. 2 wins, 1 loss, 30 points
  4. David Newby, Sisters of Battle. 2 wins, 1 loss, 26 points
  5. Charlie Bennett, Ynnari. 2 wins, 1 loss, 25 points
  6. Ron Gargett, Alpha Legion. 1 win, 1 loss, 1 draw, 17 points
  7. Alfie Bennett, Homunculus Covens. 1 win, 2 losses, 34 points
  8. Chris Tucker, Necrons. 1 win, 2 losses, 20 points
  9. Josh, Space Wolves. 1 win, 2 losses, 26 points
  10. Macaulay Uniack, Raven Guard. 1 win, 2 losses, 7 points
  11. Les Harvey, Dark Angels. 2 losses, 1 draw, 19 points
  12. Kyle Clements, Blood Angels. 3 losses, 27 points
There is a nice spread of armies, with only one repetition. Which is the pattern so far. All three events have had a duplicate faction. Interestingly they have been a different faction and different players each time.

Jack's Daemons have won back to back events. I believe part of this is there ability to swarm the table via Summoning and rapidly overwhelm opponents. Especially as they usually start the game outnumbering them. It's something a lot of forces can't deal with unless they are set up to deal with it, which may cost them against others. It was possibly a key to the success of the Orks as well. Mobs of boyz set up in trucks, an army of large-ish, fast moving units.

End of May sees a repeat of this event, while we await 8th Editions release and the discussion into how to move forward with these events once that has happened.

Thanks to everyone that came, I hope that they all enjoyed it and I'll be sending out the survey shortly
