Broadside Bash 2012

Post by Rivan on Fri Feb 03, 2012 1:43 pm

I'm attending my first major tournament after a break of over a year. It is the Broadside Bash 40K tourney in Los Angeles, CA on Feb 18-19 and it is a 2-day GW style Golden Ticket tournament set at 2000pts. Aside from overall 1st and 2nd place, there will be a Best General, Sportsmanship and Army Appearance awards.

Also just saw the army breakdown among the 50 participants:
IG - 8
SM - 7
GK - 7
BA - 5
SW - 5
DE - 5
ORKS - 3
Tyranids - 3
CSM - 3
DA - 1
BT - 1
Necrons - 1
Daemons - 1
Eldar - 0
Tau - 0
SoB - 0

ooh, so "few" space wolve and BA players looks pretty weird. looks like the GK became more cheesy than expected.

that 3 tyranids are attending is pretty interresting. aswell as the daemons, tell me the results if you are able to get them from those Smile

i wish you luck on your great journey on the road to victory!

Thanks Brother. Yeah, I kinda miss the days when I would usually be the only GK player in a tournament Razz

I know I'm not fielding a spam list but I'm quite sure I'll see several Purifier/Crowe spam or Henchmen/RB spam lists there. Maybe that will help distinguish my army from theirs so I won't get dinged too much on comp scores Razz although I know its almost inevitable as long as I'm fielding GKs.

Well, I'm off to drive up to Los Angeles tomorrow for Broadside Bash 2012. The games begin on Saturday and go through until Sunday.

I did not finish painting my army so I'm not even eligible for Best Army Appearance. This also hurts my overall score. No matter, I'm hoping to just have fun and gain more experience. There's always a chance for Best General Razz

I will post short updates via my phone as I finish each game. The bat reps will have to follow sometime next week. Wish me luck!

Or more likely, 'destroy those guard, marines, Space Wolves, Blood Angels and other Grey Knights'.

Finished the third game against BT and garnered another victory!

I only had 15 BP for this game though...would've gotten 19 BP if my pallies had made their Ld from tank shocks Evil or Very Mad Oh we'll, a win is a win and I'm still within striking range of Best General Smile

Regret to report Brothers that I had my first loss. I was up against DE again but this list had a FW Tantalus in addition to all his raiders and ravagers. Should still have been no problem coz I was hitting consistently but the guy made more than 10 5+ invul saves (flicker field) Evil or Very Mad

It was a well fought game though and even my opponent said he couldn't believe his luck. One more game to go. And, incidentally, this is just the first loss for this list.

Yup. 12 shot S5 AP2. It also has other attack options.
It didn't do anything though. I killed it with my first shot. It was his consistent 5+ invuls with his flickershields that really decided the game. I couldn't kill his DLs and that was bad news for me.

More bad news...last game was vs IG and the mission was VP. This was a really tough set up since I had really expensive units vs his really cheap units. He had 3 manticores, 3 vendettas and a ton of melta and plasma vets in chimeras. I couldnt get to his manticores because of the wall of chimeras and plasma/melta. Even though I killed a crap load of guardsmen and chimeras + a vendetta, I only scored around 700 pts. Meanwhile he was dropping D3 S10 large blasts for each missile from a manticore. So I took another loss Sad

Now for some good news...I entered my old GM in a separate painting competition being judged by Cool Mini Or Not people. I won 1st place in the sci-fi category! They actually told me that I almost got 1st place for Overall as well. There were 4 judges and they had to argue back and forth but eventually put me in 2nd overall. Oh well. They said they'll post the pics on their CMON FB page so I'll let you know when you can view it there Very Happy

Nice stuff on the painting competition!

Sucks on the losses though. I know with my DE list it lives and dies on the 5+ invuln saves on my Venoms, its actually amazing the difference they make.
Kind of bad design from GWS though, because some games you'll make 10 5+ saves, and clobber the opponent, other games you'll lose 5 vehicles round 1 for an auto loss. Really poor way to balance the codex for both sides.

Guard are a nasty army to fight though Sad Need more autocannon Dreads in your list Razz
