DieCon 09: Saturday Part 2.9 – 4 x 1 Tourney Round 4!

Next round was against Chris Pratt [Xanathan]!

His list was pretty straightforward and loaded to bear with Armor:

Stryker Ol Rowdy 4 Stormlances Journeyman Warcaster

Ouch, 2 Arcane Shields, followed with Invincibility. Ugh. Ok, this game needs to be quick. My opponent is tired as well, so we get cracking. I prey on the cav, thinking that I should be able to ...

DieCon 09: Saturday Part 2.8 – 4×1 Tourney Round 3

Next round was against Rob Elstro [Corinth], fielding a Legion force.

His list: Lylyth Typhon Warmonger Chieftan 5 Raptors

So, he had a quick speedy list with tons of attacks that would really benefit from her feat. I got the first turn, and I preyed on Typhon. The army ran up, and I expected doom for Deneghra, so I Death Raged ...

DieCon 09: Saturday Part 2.7 – 4 x 1 Tourney Round 2

After the fast win that I picked up vs Joe, I hung around and talked to people while awaiting the next round.

I met up with Amy, whom I had given my Cryx coin to.

 

My next game was vs Ray Bailer [Neomorte].

He was using Legion, and his army was:

Rhyas Typhon Warmonger Chieftan Warmonger Unit

Wow, very similar armies on both ...

DieCon 09: Saturday – Part 2.6 4×1 Tourney Round 1

So, the 1-1-1-1 event was underway! Each person brought 1 caster/lock, jack/beast, solo, and unit. The scenario was always assassination! My list:

Deneghra Nightmare General Gerlak Slaughterborn 9 Bloodgorgers

Now I understand that Bloodgorgers are not necessarily the best choice in this format, since there won’t be that many living models to generate blood tokens from, but even 2 gets me ...

DieCon 09: Part 2.5 Saturday – Afternoon

Well, HardCore was over, and so people were just hanging out, waiting for the 350 1-1-1-1 tourney to start. So I was talking to my buddy Matt O’Reilly [Gearloop], and we decided to play a game.

750: Denny vs E-Thaggy. I can’t really recall the lists, but I do know that he had quite a few ...

DieCon 09: Part 2.4 – Saturday HARDCORE Round 4 and Wrap-Up!

 Game 4: vs Alex Shaver [Amhartan] using E-Thagrosh!

E-Thagrosh 2 Angels Typhon Harrier Seraph 2 Forsaken Gobbers Nephilim Soldier Shredder [?] + Whatever I forgot, again :)

So, this is good. I’m up against a heavy beast army, and he can pop out a freebie 1 VP if I hit him hard [which I do a lot of]. Those Angels are problematic, but Typhon even ...

DieCon 09: Part 2.3 – Saturday HARDCORE Round 3!

This is where it usually gets harder. Round 3 is where the really tough matchups usually begin. Usually your E-Vlads and E-Morghouls rise to the top, along with a few of the luckier [me] players who manage to roll their way out of trouble. The vets with the good/solid casters are sitting against each other at ...

DieCon 09: Part 2.2 – Saturday HARDCORE Round 2!

That first win is a such a huge ego boost in a HardCore tourney. I have to say that winning the first game, no matter how close or how narrow, really gets you going. I was already learning from my mistakes from the previous game, and was thinking about what worked and didn’t work. Using ...

DieCon 09: Part 2.1 – Saturday! HARDCORE Round 1.

These games are going to be more detailed, so I will be splitting up these into separate daily posts.

Continuing onto Saturday:

It’s still Friday night, after midnight, when we get out of the Con. We’re pretty hungry, and so we decide to get some food. An IHOP meal would hit the spot, and so away we ...
