So Vermintide was yesterday. I had a really great time and played against 5 really great people. Here are the results and my list.
Orc big boss on boar with sword of striking, dragonhelm and luckstone.
Orc level 2 on boar with ruby ring
20 Ng with 2 Fanatics
18 savage big unz std muso
2 Boar chariots
1 Wolf chariot
2 pumpwagons with outriggers.
I played Caleb with Slaan lizards first up. I was worried about the skinks, but chariots and pumpwagons are my friends. Caled didn't roll regrowth with the slaan, so when a first turn foot killed about 9 temple guard, I could then confidently go into it with the trolls. It ended up full points to me.
Then a long came my old sparing partner Simon and his Dwarfs. So his canon ended up rolling a one for his cannon so it didn't turn up first turn. And as he was off building sandcastles in the corner, past the turn to me. I just barrelled everything forward as fast as pos. Highlights were one of my pumpwagons going 38" in two turns into the quarrellers, killing 2 and getting chopped to timber. Simon was good at picking targets with his cannon, and took all my chariots out. I managed to get all his stuff except for the BSB and half a unit, but my army was reallt fucked up by the time I got there. 11-9 to me.
Next was Matthew with......Dwarfs.....YAY!!!! This was watchtower. Managed to get the trolls in there and all game they stayed. A good hand roll on the NG meant I could put both fanatics through both of his warrior blocks for some heavy casualties. The wolf chariot managed to clean up the grudge thrower and organ gun after only 1 turn of shooting...phew. Ended on turn 4 after I rolled a 6 on the die. Full points to me.
So Ray was proving me wrong all tournament with the Daemon Prince. Now I had to play him. Ray is a great guy to play against, and I always enjoy the challenge. Highlights were a pumpwagon being charged by 5 chaos hounds, killing them over 3 rounds of combat, then helping with the combo charge along with wolf chariot and trolls + Big boss into tzeentch halberds with rage banner. Daemon prince charged a pumpwagon first turn then overran into the front of a boar chariot. I was able to charge the flank with my savages and other flank with other chariot and kill it. Big win to the O&G.
I played Mike last round. The only way to beat Mikes list for me was to drop all my crap and wait to see where the flaming herald was going to go. Then I could re direct one of the bloodletter blocks out of the game and gang up on the rest of the army. This is pretty much what happened. I managed to g Hand of Gork the savages a couple of times to try and get them into a good position, and out of a tight spot!! Managed to get a decent win out of it.
With Joel getting a big win over Peter last round, he was able to take out the tournament. Well done mate and well deserved. Would have loved a game against you to see how that would have gone down.
So the masters are up next for me. Time to put the Big Boy pants on I think.
