Mackay Madgrot 2009

After a bit of umming and ahhing I decided to go up to Mackay with some of the guys from the club to Madgrot. This is a 2000 point tournament and I really wasn't expecting much since I only added in a Falcon to my existing list and a few extra guys here and there. Below is a picture of what I took.

The tables were fairly bare and my first game was against IG on a table with a grand total of five pieces of terrain. I kept my opponent busy by tank shocking with my holo falcon up and down his lines each turn and managed to pull out a solid victory holding one objective and contesting the other two whilst having destroyed a sizable chunk of his force.

Game two saw me against another much tougher IG player. I opted for first turn but failed to do much with my shooting. His first turn saw both of my wave serpents and my falcon all burning on the ground. He spent the rest of the game staying away from me and pounding my units from afar for a crushing loss.

My third game saw me facing off against a Space Marine army (yay not guard!). We started the game off fairly cautiously with dawn of war deployment but i soon started racking up the kills. Unfortunately I over extended and charged my wraithlord, wraithguard and banshees into a unit of assault termies. I stupidly thought then that doom needed line of sight when it didn't. The end result of that combat was my banshees ran and he whittle down my wraithguard and killed my wraithlord over the rest of the game to finish with a draw.

I went off feeling like I wasn't going to place anywhere and we went out for tea.

Day two started off with me facing a tyranid army in spearhead deployment. I systematically destroyed his hive creatures and then focused on the now leaderless gaunts. The game finished on turn five giving me a crushing victory. Had it gone a turn longer probably would have earned me a massacre.

Game five had me paired against Frosty who had come up with me in the car. Unfortunately for him I got first turn and began the task of pinning his troops and preventing his hammerheads from firing. My wraithlord advanced through the centre taking fire from the Tau army allowing my vehicles to move up relatively peacefully. In the end I finished with another crushing victory.

My results for the weekend - third overall!
