[Archive] First Tourney - 2000pts

Mr Saturday:

Well, I gave my Dawi Zharr their first tourney outing at the weekend. It was a small event, so I only got 3 games in. (I won’t count the 16,000pt mega-battle on Sunday) Here’s the list, minus the hellcannon which doesn’t seem to be included in the army builder version:

I played beastmen first, whch was a massacre. The hellcannon made mincemeat of the beasts, with shadow magic and my blocks finishing the job. One point of note was my annihilators charging a chariot, and taking out three of them in melee!

Second game, daemons. My defeat of the weekend. The prince/bloodcrusher charge did for my warrior block, letting them behind my line. 16-4 defeat.

Third game, dark elves. I managed to secure enough standards and kill the general in a challenge with my bsb just before the double hydras charged my annihilators. Phew. The sneaky gits done great, taking the black guard out of the game long enough to get my blocks where I needed them.

Gits did great. Might drop the bolt throwers though, and try to squeeze in an earthshaker. Everyone else did well, the dispel/hexacon combo was invaluable. Might try to flame up the obsidian guard next time.

Overall, happy. Chaos dwarves are a blast, and I loved the ‘What are they? Wow, chaos dwarves!’ comments.

richard barby:

i like the list has a few good toys in it

Glimpse the Void:

Thanks for the report. I hope to play in my first tounament with my chaos dwarves next month and hope I do as well.

Mr Saturday:

Cheers, good luck in the tournament. I’m tempted to take shadow magic with two blocks of 20 annihilators with chaos armour and shield and a kolossus in my next list, seeing as it’s damaged like an arachnarok now (according to Chris from Garagehammer).

Glimpse the Void:

I’ve the same plan in mind. Do you have any Kollosus ideas? I am thinking I’d like to convert one from a mumak if I can find one…

Mr Saturday:

This is it:
