View Full Version : Autumn mini-tournament, 7 reports (2000pts)

A few friends and I recently played a mini knock-out tournament. Here's a link to the reports: http://www.thezombiesquig.co.uk/autumn_2009/tournament.php

There were no special characters allowed. Also, we didn't include table quarters in the VP to allow some people to try out gunlines (to annoy the DOC player :D).

I was playing WOC and was knocked out in this game (http://www.thezombiesquig.co.uk/autumn_2009/dwarfs_vs_warriors_of_chaos.php) against a dwarf gunline, whose anvil snared and crippled me. With the list I had (here (http://www.thezombiesquig.co.uk/autumn_2009/warriors_of_chaos.php)) I decided to just advance and try to engage the anvil with a disc-mounted sorcerer, given that I only had two level 2s and they were not going to cast much with his amount of dispel dice. However this plan failed and I was brutally whittled down before reaching combat.

Would anyone have any advice for dealing with an anvil of doom with a WOC army? From that game, I imagine engaging it quickly with something violent, such as a lord on dragon or Tz hero on disc, would be a good start. He did have a lot of lucky rolls (getting ancient runes every turn), but nonetheless it does have defensive and offensive capabilities.

I read your WoC vs Dwarf batrep. Ouch. He was incredibly lucky to get ancient power off 3x in a row, and to roll a 3 every time. I'm not sure what you could've done about that.

heya, I just read your WoC rep's :) I wouldn't worry too much when you play a new army, you're bound to make mistakes. The dwarf game just seemed really brutal, mind you, you did say that you took away VP's for quarters to encourage gunlines :D

That was a nasty anvil...

Best thing WoC can do is hunt it down with fast cav. At the very least it will tie it up and stop it from being used.

If I'm reading it correctly your Immune to Panic Slaaneshi Warriors failed a Panic test on turn 2, yes? ;)

Thanks for the advice guys. I guess some horsemen with MOS would be ideal for the job.

You are reading it correctly... my second game using them and I forgot about it :( I don't think it would've made too much difference though.
