Good Friday morning all! The weekend is soon! Last Sunday we held our regularly scheduled RTT at Huzzah Hobbies. I know it was Fathers Day and the same weekend as killadelphia, but I decided stubbornly that consistency would be better. So as a reminder, every third sunday of a month will be 1850 40k RTT at Huzzah Hobbies. Prize support pool is based on attendance, so the more of you attending the prizes grow substantially larger!
Would also like to mention that Huzzah Hobbies has set Wednesday night as 40k nights, so show up 40kers! Get some games in. Huzzah also has a good price on GW product, 10% off, which is always a good thing.
So despite the adverse conditions, we still had a good turn out with several new folks in attendance, which is always a good thing. The range of armies was not super diverse this time though, we had a few necron players, a few daemons, a tau, and I think a space wolves player. The Deamon flying circus quickly found out why tau are basically eliminating them from being a viable army, at least without some super sneaky tactical play AND good LOS blocking terrain. Necrons did well as always, with two of our necron players squaring off in round 2 I believe.
Both necron players brought what i'd consider non-standard builds. One was using a monolith with two command barges, plus two of the transport barges. It's unusual to see a monolith, but even more so to see the lords on barges (they were super popular in 5th, I know, but not recently).
The other was using a list more like what Niel on the 11th company used to advertise, lots of squads veiling around the board to deep strike in and annihilate with overwhelming firepower.
One of these two won it all! Anyone want to guess?
So Collin won it all with Veil Necrons, with Lee coming in second place with his barge necrons, we had two guys tie for third, Peter and Lance, So I diced it off to see who would win as is appropriate.
|Flying Circus Deamons vs. Space wolves|
|Tau vs. Flying Circus Daemons, Tau (Peter) won this one|
