So I have now been to Warhammer World Nottingham and the Schools League National Finals! It was absolutely amazing and I loved everything about the place. The place was like a university campus with many separate buildings with connecting paths/walkways and there was a balcony and even a small garden!
|Army ready for combat.|
So a quick run-down: we arrived around 09:00 and got prepared, our armies out, our army lists checked and finally familiar with the amazing surroundings before we started at around 11:00. Round 1 was a Dawn of War, Capture and Control against a horde Ork player. His list was 2x30 orks with a power klaw, a warboss with a power klaw and 5 lootas. I basically split his two big units up and munched both by turn 2 with the combined firepower and close combat prowess of the many gaunts. A win for me.
Round 2 was against a Tyranid player I knew from The Tyranid Hive, Alta, who had a Tyrannofex w/ cannon, 10 gaunts and a prime with warriors in a pod. We started this game late due to a mix up so we had to rush but it was fun anyhow. It was a seize ground, spearhead battle and since I got first turn and 2/3 objectives I just sat back, pumped out gaunts and won the game by not moving. A win for me.
All my friends were laughing at me due to the fact that I recognised Alta from TTH and were saying 'remember what we were told in school, don't meet people on the internet.' It was funny and Alta was a great guy and it will be a hilarious story for my next 'internet safety' lesson at school.
Round 3 was a Pitched battle, killpoints game against a Tau player who had a Hammerhead, 6 fire warriors in devilfish, 20 kroot and 2 crisis suits with missile pods. This game went really slowly, I suspect my opponent was doing this deliberately, but by turn 5 I had just killed the crisis suits for 1 killpoint and had only lost 2 gaunts. A win for me again!
Here are some pics of the event that I took during the very long breaks.
