Say you were to play in a all-comers tournament event. What would your list look like? Will to be heavy magic? Or will you try for a more direct hands-on approach?

I'd love to see what fellow players field in tournaments and playing to win. Pretend the prize is well worth your efforts.

No magic, cavalry, krox, terradons, a few skinks and 3 dinoes. BSB and JSOD.

Lots and lots of Knights Errant. Minimum magical protection and cheap heroes to lead the army. Just focus on swarming the enemy through sheer volume of knights.

2 x 10 Archers
2 x Chariot

Tomb Kings:

1 x Tomb King

I use Elector count, mounted BSB, warrior priest, scroll caddy, 2 units of 30 spearmen with detachments, 2 vanilla knights, 2 6 man units of outriders, 2 6 man units of pistoleers, helblaster and flagellants, and then sprinkle whatever magic items I am fancying at the moment. That is my tournament army because artillery is very unreliable I do not use it.

Bretonnian swarm. Wonderful word pairing. :D


My list is here:

I have no "tournament list", per se. Tournaments are a way for me to get out and play different people in different areas, I don't see them as something other than another part of the same hobby that involves friendly games at home.

I do OK with it. Middle of the pack in the last tournament, won the previous one, do pretty well in local/friendly games.

The one I brought last time was:

Highborn w/ Bow of loren, arkane bodkins, light armor, enchante shield, spear on a dragon
Noble w/ bow that lets me reroll, hail of doom arrow, light armor, shield on a horse
10 glade guard X 4
5 glade riders w/ musician X 3
8 dryads
3 war hawks
5 waywatchers X 2

It did fairly well (1 massacre, 1 minor victory, 1 draw)

Black Orc Warboss on Wyvern
BSB
2 Shamen
10 Savage Orc Boar boys
3 Rock Lobbers
Doom Diver
2 Pump Wagons

Units of 20 Orcs w/ hand wep, shield, light arm
20 NGs with 3 fanatics
a handful of fast cav to taste....

Used well it's quite an effective little army, the wyvern and boars usually double team units and win, while the units of boys stand fast (animosity non-withstanding) in front of the war machines which are busy flattening my opponents army.

It came 11th in its heat in the GW Tourney a few years back, and has won a couple of local ones (although you can never be guaranteed the more skilled opposition at those ones...)

Well at 2000 points I've been thinking of this list, don't have it with me but the rough idea is:

Seer on bell with charm and stormvermin
2 X warlock engineer - tooled with storm deamon and scrolls
Bsb chieften - swarm banner most likely

3 x 25 clanrats with rattlings and full command

small gutter runner and night runner sqads

2 X Giant rat packs

The rest on 25 X slave blocks.

My list would be similar to ward's
I often take a seer and two warlocks. I then take enough troops to outnumber the enemy, and outmanouver them with a couple of fast units. I then look through possible unit types that my army is weak at beating and take the appropriate specialist units. Its as simple as that. Many opponents are taking multi-wound models? Then I take a warp lightening cannon.
Heavy Cav, I take PWGs or globadiers.
Tough frenzied units, I take fast skirmishers so that they enemy can't catch them, and are stuck chasing them.
Warmachines get tunneling teams.
