View Full Version : Distribution of Armies at Ard Boyz Prelims

16-08-2011, 02:18
Hey guys,

I was wondering what the distribution of armies you saw at your Ard Boyz prelims were. Where I went there were 15 players total and:

7 Blood Angels
3 Imperial Guard
2 GK
1 Dark Eldar
1 Space Wolves
1 Dark Angels

First place went to Blood Angels, second went to Space Wolves and I got third with my lowly IG.

I couldn't believe how many Blood Angels armies there were, although I guess that maybe I shouldn't be super surprised since I've been seeing so many of them lately.

So, again, what was the distribution of armies where you played?


EDIT: Can you also post who was in the top three please? Thanks!

We actually had a really good spread of armies out of 12 people.

1 Ork
1 DE
1 BA
2 Tau
1 DA
1 BT
1 SM
1 Necron
1 GK

Yep......No Space Wolves or IG. Go figure.

That's awesome, Bestaltan. Glad to see the nice spread where you come from!

We had 6 people at my tournament.

2 mech IG
2 space wolves(1 mech 1 foot)
1 GK(henchmen/rifle dreads)
1 DA deathwing(me)

Mech IG won and it was a tossup for 2/3rd between the mech IG/SW and GK. The GK had the worst list and I think got knocked out but I can't be sure.

17-08-2011, 07:25
1 DE
1 Ork
2 Deathwing
2 GK
1 Eldar
3 Wolves
1 BA
1 Necron

DE took first
Deathwing 2nd
Me and my Orks 3rd.

Had a buddy of mine take 2nd with his Eldar list in St. Louis. Dont know the name of the shop or who/what he played against.

there was about 20 people out ours. I can't remember what armies where there. The only number I can remember is 3 necrons..

I thought I had gone through a tare in the space time continuum when I saw 3 necrons at 'ard boyz

Hehe, and not one tyranid army... and only one csm. Sigh. I hope the rumors are true.

And what are these rumors you speak of?

As for my area......I love playing in the central East Tennessee area (around Knoxville). As is typical of my area's history, we could care less what everyone else thinks, and just do things our way. In this case, we still play what we want.

10 players, 3 Ork players including myself.
1 Grey Knights, 1 CSM, 1 Tyranids, 1 IG, 1 Salamanders Marines, 2 Blood Angels.

I am pretty sure 1 Blood Angels player placed 1st, GK second and the other Blood Angels 3rd. two were tied for fourth including myself and the salamanders player.
