My First GT

Post by Kyrox on Mon Nov 08, 2010 1:49 pm

Like my dad mentioned in his thread, we attended the NEONCON GT in Vegas this weekend and it was a lot of fun. I definitely learned a lot and made new friends. Luckily for me, all my opponents were nice and pretty cool. Apologize for no pictures but we only had 1 camera and I forgot to use my phone to take pics.
This is the list I used:

HQ - Chaos Sorcerer, MoS, Lash
HQ - DP, MoT, wings, bolt, gift of chaos
EL - Dread, pc & cca
TR - 7 x plague marines (2 meltas; champion has pf); rhino w/ ea
TR - 7 x plague marines (2 meltas; champion has pf); rhiino w/ ea
TR - 7 x noise marines (6 sb, 1 bm); rhino w/ havoc launcher
FA - 5 x chaos bikes (1 melta, 1 plasma; champion has pf & icon of nurgle)
HS - defiler w/ battle cannon, 2 cca
HS - pred w/ all las
HS - pred w/ all las

First game - vs BA, dawn of war, kill points
He had a librarian, 2 s. priests, 20 marines in rhinos, 10 assault in a redeemer, 3 baal preds & 3 vindicators. His list was pretty intimidating but the game went well for me. My DP performed very well and killed 3 tanks in addition to other units Very Happy Victory.

Second game - vs CSM (Black Legion), pitched battle, hold table center
He had Abaddon, a greater daemon, 2 x 10 CSM in rhinos, 1 x 8 CSM, 2 x 8 lesser daemons, 2 x 3 oblits, land raider.
It was a very close game. It would have a been a draw at turn 5, I would have won at turn 6 but the game went to 7 and he won. I still loved this game because Abaddon charged my DP and did 8 wounds and I made 7 invuls! cheers On my turn, I gave him the gift of chaos and turned Abaddon into a chaos blob Razz Razz

Third game - vs DE, pitched battle, get as many KP into opponent's deployment zone
He had Lelith w/ 8 wyches & 1 succubus, 5 x 8 wyches & 1 succubus in raiders, 8 warriors w/ styrabite in a raider, 3 ravagers, 2 x reavers & 1 succubus.
There was almost nothing I could do to prevent him from getting into my deployment zone. He had too many fast moving vehicles Evil or Very Mad Lost.

Fourth game - vs CSM, pitched battle, 5 objectives
He had 2 DP, 10 chaos termies, 2 x 10 berzerkers in rhinos, 2 x 10 CSM in rhinos, 5 x lesser daemons, 1 vindicator
This was also a close game but he had almost double my number of troops and that determined the outcome. Lost.

Fifth game - vs IG, spearhead, kill points
My opponent had a lot of units (can't remember them all now) but he had a couple of ST squads, arbites squad, vanquisher, valkyrie and other infantry squads. He also had Yarrick.
I already knew my opponent since we met in the Anaheim tourney so we had a really fun game. I managed to get way more kill points that he couldn't keep up Razz Won.

Overall, I learned a lot and will probably alter my list somewhat. I think my list was soft compared to most of the lists I saw there. I also think I really need more troops. Also for next time, I'll make sure to prepare way ahead of time so I can get my army painted better. The good things is that I maxed out on composition and sportsmanship Very Happy

Awesome stuff!
Versing the new DE would have been hard since no one has any idea what they are capable of right now!!!!

Definately a great result.

You should try working some normal daemons into your list, they are relatively cheap, and have massed attacks plus are fearless meaning a very hard to remove troop, even if you go to ground with them on a objective.

Well done, Kyrox.
I can imagine the look of your opponent when you turned his Abaddon into a Chaos spawn cheers
The new DE are very nasty. I think it will take some time till we will have a proper tactic against them. I found it quit interresting that your opponent played a wyches cult list.

Well done. Your first tournie is always special if not a bit overwhelming. I can see by your post that you have a good attitude about it as well by having fun and using your losses as a learning experience. Keep it up. Smile

So how many points did you get and what place did you land on?

And how much painting?

And congrats on a fun tourney, hope you paint you CSM better (ie, finish them, it was clear you didn't get the time you wanted on them) next time and learn to fight sportmansly, but furiously!
