NZTC 2013

Heeellloooooo fruitcakes.


So the NZTC is coming up next month and I am excited. Really excited.  This will be my first taste of  ETC style team warhammer so it will be a real learning experience.
The biggest challenge for me was finding what army to take and how to write the list.  Normally writing a list with the armies I own isn't too bad, as I have experience with them and know what works, but this is different.  I had to get away from writing an all comers list like normal, as with the matchup system being used, you can somewhat tailor your army to fight maybe two or three certain others.  That's if we get the pairings right aye Joel!



There are some very strong teams going to this event, and it should be very competitive.  But to be honest, you may as well write our teams name on the trophy right now!

By the way, to give the other teams a fighting chance, here are the armies our team will be using, and who will be playing them.

Joel - Beastmen army only using Ungors
James - Dwarf slayer army with no war machines
Glen - Goblin wolf rider army with lvl4 on Arachnarok
Me - WOC containing two huge blocks of Forsaken

You have been warned.

Later fuckers

  3. Sam is such a dick though. He wouldn't let me take my Gnoblar army led by a Flyrant! I still say that would've fucked everyone up. Instead I have to settle for this bog standard push it forward dwarf army...

    1. Come on now James we have been over this. We want to give the opposition a fighting chance!!! I know we could have gone with the never seen Dwarf gunline for lol's, but I think it was better to stick to the norm.

  4. TO expand on Sam's briefing: my list is units of 5 Ungors - half in ambush, 2 lvl4s and 2 lvl1's on lore of the Wild, supported by 2 cyclops things.

  5. Sweet my army of 1,200 slaves will have an epic fight against the all slayer army. Stubborn/Unbreakable horde deathmach!

    Hell if I group them right I think I can probably cause an exploding slave area of death in the middle of the board where if the slayers do actually win one of the combats the reulting chain reaction of hits from exploding slave units will ensure everyone dies!

    :) Seriously though I can say I will be taking something that is completely broken and overpowered. (mainly as whatever I take someone will complain that it is completely broken/unbalanced/overpowered)

    1. Omg, Dave someone needs to organise a 1000slave vs 1000 Gnoblar (400pts for toys obviously) game of toy soldiers

      The world needs this! Screw NZTC... :-D

    2. My money is on the Gnoblars. Trapper upgrade + stand and shoot should clean out the slaves for easy victory :P

    3. Nah, if you go giving them upgrades then I can give the slaves slings and still outnumber them 2 to 1 with the added trapper upgrade so we can have a stand & shoot off. Slaves will have 4x the shots though (2x the models & multi shot slings) so I think they would have to take it :)

      See, overpowered, and why I will be taking just a naked chieftan and a thousand slaves to the NZTC :)

  7. Hey mate,

    this has nothing to do with this post, but I got some Hellstriders for Xmas and have a tonne of bits left over, seem to remember yo where after the bits? Happy to post them to you if you'd like, or I can bring them to Equinox if you're going.

    Cheers,

  8. Off Topic: I was really thinking about just taking 'normal' warmachines instead of putting runes on them. But then I thought to myself, but that won't piss people off and bore them out of their minds. So I bought a crap load of them instead!
