Rebelcon – Carcharodons bring home 3rd place

Hello fine people,

Well its been a weekend of some hardcore wargaming action.  Starting off on Friday night with a massive 7hr painting bender to get my army list ready, to comprehensively destroying 3 armies on the 1st day of play, to absolutely getting my ass handed to me on the final two days on day 2…

However, I did manage to come home with 3rd places, which I was really happy with.  Since getting back into playing 40k about 2 years ago, and attending now about 8 or 9 tournaments, finally getting a podium place was very satisfying.

Justin & John did a really good job running the Tournament and always very helpful and diligent with any rules queries.  It was a fun weekend, and I got to play some awesome opponents.

So the break down went like this.

Game 1.  It was the Sharks V Jarrett Bennett’s Necrons’.  This game resulted in a comprehensive victory to the Sharks.

Game 2.  Sharks V Isaac Robertson’s Salamanders Space Marines.  This was a really enjoyable game.  Isaac’s army actually ended up taking out “Best Painted”  The highlight of the game (for Isaac I’m sure) was him destroying the Redeemer carrying Tyberos & his body guard, only to then blow the entire body guard to bits with a Vindicator round… ouch.  Majoy victory to the Sharks in the end

Game 3.  Sharks V Garry Levett’s Grey Knights.  Garry has a very nicely painted army and I’m sure if the tables scenery had been set up any other way he would have faired a lot better.  However because there was the Fortress of Redemption smack bang in the middle of the table, he was unable to bring his armies strengths to bear and was out manoeuvred.   Major Victory to the Sharks

Game 4.  Sharks V Dave Kerr’s Necrons’ with Ork allies.  As I’ve mentioned in a previous post, Dave is a very formidable opponent, one of the top Tier in Qld I’m sure, if not Australia.  He took my army apart in very short order, completely destroying it.  Major Loss to the Sharks.

Game 5.  Sharks V Josh McGowan’s Eldar.  I hate Eldar at the best of times, and when in the hands of a respectable General such as Josh, I knew it was going to be an up hill battle.  I did put up a good fight, but sadly the mission was against me and it resulted in a Major Loss to the Sharks.

Overall I had a great time.  I’ve made a few improvements to the army list, giving it a bit more stand off fire power in the form of a Mortis Pattern Contemptor Dreadnought with twin-linked las cannons, however I think I’ll dump the assault squad, and add in a bit more fire power in the form of either a twin auto cannon MkV Dreadnought or a Devastator squad with 4 missile launchers.

Ok, thats me

hope you all have a great week.
