Hey folks, I just can't stop thinking about how much fun the Ard Boyz tourney will be. I have 3 armies to choose from, and am just wondering what other people will be bringing.

I have:
Empire with 2 Steam Tanks, and War Altar
O&G with 3 Giants and a Shaman on Wyvern
VC with Yet to be determined as I haven't seen a armybook

Just wondering if anyone else thinks this will be fun to cheese out an army, and what they would bring to the table :)

Isn't that the whole point? Everyone breaks out their "It can't lose" army and we'll see what happens? :)

That's why I like this idea. Even if I go 0-3 and get massacred every game I'll get to see and experience some epic confrontations.

Will Grimgor make it to the table? I am guessing that Teclis, and one of the Vampire Lords will be there.

Will Tyrion make an appearance? How about Prince on Star Dragon plus Dragon Mage?

Prelude, that sounds cool. The HE can theoretically field 3 dragons in a 3500 point list, can't they?

I think we also might see some Tree madness from the Woodies, Skaven will probably field 2 Grey Seers and 4 Warlock engineers, Brets will have Peggies, 2 Trebuchets and Knights up the wazoo, Can Lizardmen put 2 Slanns on the table? How many bone Giants will TK field? Can the Hordes field multiple Greater Demons?

Bwa ha ha ha

*sigh*

This is why I'm so sad that the Games Workshop store in Syracuse was closed. Now I can't get in on cool stuff like this. No Iron Halo for me...

Uriel,

Mine is at a Rogue Trader store 45 minutes from where I live, is there anything near you that may have a qualifier for this?

I don't know about most of that stuff, but I can state that most TK's will not be fielding much if any Bone Giants.

The correct question is 3 SSC's or 2 and a CoS?

Yes. I want that badge. I'm going to put it on my sweet Cadian VIII backpack.

For Empire I honestly though someone would take Karl Franz on dragon, War Altar and 3 steam tanks.

I was looking at a ridiculous WE list that wouldn't be viable but might be entertaining:
2 Lords on Dragons and 3 treemen

With essentially absent magic protection I expect this army would have it's wooden limbs handed to it by a magic-heavy opponent but the sheer joy of dropping more than 1/2 your points as 5 models in a non-chaos army might be worth the look on some opponents faces.


The army I fear most in such an event would be dwarfs with 8-10 runed-up bolt throwers followed by the oblitatory anvil, 3 gyrocopters and all that jazz.

Esco, I am not a TK player I just know the local guy I play loves his Boner :) What was the stuff you mentioned?

Raven go for it! I am probably going to play the Brothers grimm list of O&G just to see what happens :)

I expect every list I see to be a problem in the making, that's why I think this will be fun. I get tired of the same 2000 point lists, so an all comers list of psychotic extreme just seems great.

I like my Bone giant as well, he's just rather hit and miss, literally.

The stuff I was mentioning was an SSC, Screaming Skull Catapult which are awesome, and or the Casket of Skulls which can be devastating.
