Ah, the power of change...


I should write a post about this past weekend's Warhammer tournament. Long story short, I finished 2-0-1 and tied for second with 63 points.
Now for those of you that think that just because you can crush some high school kid using someone else's army list consisting of 8 minotaurs and 5 chariots, I challenge you to take that list to a tournament. I further challenge you to either a) take at least 3rd place in a 14 person local tournament or b) finish in the top 1/3rd at a 140 person global tournament or c) try that crap against my new Tzeentch Horde army. Especially if you've got nothing better to do this saturday!
I find that in a 2250 list, 8 minotaurs (while it's true they won't go away) are simply too hard to manoever. There is a guy in florida name Jordan who fields a beastman army with 18 chariots!!!! I shit you not. Hell, they're core, and he never loses with that army. Yuri on the other hand has 2 bray-shamen and 8 beast herds!! that's it. He's never lost with that army either.
Different strokes I guess. I know this post will only make sense to 1 of you, sorry for that.

Okay, firstly, He was a tough opponent becouse all his characters consited of over 250 points (I took them both econdly, I'll be there on Saturday we might be able to get a game in. Thirdly, I don't think that Minotaurs have to be manuverable (you can use them to scare units to a more suitable location or beat the pee out of them[yes I said pee]. Fourthly, I will finish higher than you at the Hillbilly (or I'll give it the old "Cammack" try). And lastly I'm going to field a unit of four Ironguts instead of a giant and a third caster. I'll beat the crap out of anyone who underestimates me (mainly you and Derek.)

On another note, taking third in a 14 person tournament would be tough, being in the top 1/3 of 140 would be challenging, but beating your tzeetch horde army would be like taking candy from a baby.
