On the weekend I participated in an 8000pt Apoc tournament and placed 3rd overall, and also won “Best Painted” It was a great tournament, with 4 games being held over the two days. It was a smoothly run Tournament which would be expected when the steady hand of Jeremy from GW Chermside was at the helm. As you would have seen if you like my FB page, there were some pretty amazing armies present. In particular a pretty striking Eldar army, with an amazing Phantom Titan (which whipped my ass)
So the breakdown of the games went like this.
Game 1. Me Vs Matt.
Matt had a rather large Salamander Space Marine force being supported by two Warhound Titan. Luckly for me, I smoked the two Warhounds straight away. Major Victory to me
Game 2. Me Vs Tony’s Eldar
Phantom Titans are tough to hurt, let alone kill. That is all – Major loss to me
Game 3. Me Vs Reds Imperial Guard
My Titans really gave Red’s guard a hammering. The Reaver was killing super heavy tanks at will, and due to a rather unfortunate deployment roll for Red, meant that the blast templates from my Titans were laying hammer blows everytime they shot. Major Victory to Me
Game 4. Me Vs Steve’s Imperial Guard
My opponent conceded half way though my 1st turn. It was pretty ugly for the Guard. Major Victory to Me
The Titans were really fun to play with. In games of Apoc they seriously come into their own. It takes a concerted and determined effort to destroy one, let alone 3 (unless your a Eldar Phantom Titan). The fire power they dish out is astonishing too. It was very pleasing to see them on the Battlefield, and to get best painted was a rewarding achievement after so many months of painting these 3 massive projects.
Thanks for stopping in
