I am now officially ready for the tournament in Lund. I only got in three test games with my Skarre1 list, but all things considering I’m happy with my setup, and I’m confident I won’t fail completely against the Swedes (Hubris I know). I’ve also begun a project I hope to finish before the weekend, which is to mark unit leaders with a different back arc color, to make them easier for me to keep track of on the table.
I’m looking forward to seeing my entire army on the table as well, since I’ve been playing with proxies and unpainted models for the last two months, but thanks to Neldar I now get to field the Bane Riders in their first official tournament this weekend, and there shall be many faces wrecked!
Pirate Queen Skarre
Bane Riders (Leader and 4 Grunts)
Blackbane’s Ghost Raiders (Leader and 9 Grunts)
Mechanithralls (Leader and 5 Grunts)
Necrosurgeon (Necrosurgeon & 3 Stitch Thralls)
Satyxis Blood Witches (Leader and 9 Grunts)
– Satyxis Blood Hag
Soulhunters (Leader and 4 Grunts)
This list makes me all warm and fuzzy inside, as hordes of Incorporeal models swarm the opponent, backed up by the thunderous/murderous cavalry sealing the deal with a late game feat from Skarre1 (unless of course someone gives me a nice juicy feat round). This list is a serious melee bruiser list, which complements my elite Deneghra2 list very nicely.
Wraith Witch Deneghra
Bane Rider (Leader and 4 Grunts)
Cylena Raefyll & Nyss Hunters (Cylena and 9 Grunts)
The Withershadow Combine
The list itself is very unlike me, which I guess is why I like it so much, but featuring only 26 models it’s so far out of my comfort zone that the shores aren’t even visible any more. I’ve won more than I’ve lost with this list, but unlike my usual lists this one has very few auto win/loss matchups, making it a comfortable card to have on my hand during match-up phases, but not an ‘I win’ button like I’m used to having.
I’m not sure there’s wireless at the venue, but if there is I’ll keep you all updated on twitter, and maybe a video of me crying in the corner after getting beaten up by C. Wedding again (REVENGE SHALL BE MINE THOUGH!). Unfortunately the first three games will be played on Saturday, and we can’t leave home Friday due to real life issues, so we have to get up piss early which is like Lamoron Kryptonite.
With a little luck, I can sleep the entire trip away though, because for once I’m not the one driving our band of merry misfits around!
