All Scars 2016 Tournament – round 1 v Eldar
May saw the beginning of the All Scars annual 40K tournament, with our back to basics rules set.
With the newly released version of the Black Legion supplement in hand I would as usual be bringing the SAMCRO Black Legion to the battlefield, unfortunately with the tournament rule set I wouldn’t be fielding some of the cool new formations.
The random draw for round 1 was made and I was to face Andrew’s Eldar. Oh joy, the current 2-time winner of the event and so far undefeated, what could possibly go wrong?
After losing all but 2 of my bikes to d-weapons in turn 1 (including my sorcerer) I knew I was in trouble but was determined to take as many of the pointy eared freaks with me.
The Proteus and its Chosen cargo came on turn 2 as did the heldrake which helped considerably in drawing enemy fire while setting several eldar ablaze.
The melta armed Chosen were able to finally take out the d-weapon warp hunters but unfortunately the Proteus was reduced to a hulk of scrap.
The game ran a full 6 turns and I surprisingly still had units still in play (the bastion and the squad of chaos space marines stationed within it) – final score was 18-5 to the Eldar.
The draw for the next round has been made (using the swiss system) and I shall be facing the Ultramarines of Dave C, oh this will be fun bwah ha ha.
