Throne of Skulls Game 1

So the ToS event was different from previous years in that you didn't receive an overall ranking unless you were the best of your codex or best of the tournament.

I was dubious going into the event as I had previously enjoyed the usual Swiss format tournament. However, I will say that this tourney was still great fun - just different.

The format was 5 games over two days with random missions. It was random table and opponent selection all weekend until Sunday when the top boys all started facing off.

So back to the important stuff, my tournament.

Game 1 - pitched battle, annihilation.
Opponent - Andrew Turnbuck
Army - Chaos Space marines.

Quick run down of my opponents force:

daemon prince with lash
2 oblits
Vindicator
Chaos lord in terminator armour
Chaos terminators with combi weapons
Land raider
Rhino
1 squad 10 csm with a lascannon
1 squad cam with melta


The game started off Andrew got the first turn, so I did flat out scout moves to gain the 4+ cover save.

Andrew fired everything at the Valkyrie and vendettas, he was very unlucky and didn't damage anything.

My first turn, I launched a torrade of lascannon, heavy bolter, multi laser and missile fire at him. This ended with and immobilised land raider and vindicator.

From there on in Andrew blasted me off the table... Quite literally. I managed to destroy his vindicator.

It was a great game and Andrew was a great opponent. Lessons had been learnt and discussed over the ensuing lunch.

You'll notice as this is my first time doing post game reports these are very short and poorly images as I failed to take photos.

I'll aim to post 2 reports from Thursday onwards.
