The biggest tourny in my country just happened and it was a 2-day one. 3 games in the first, 2 in the second day! It worked something like this: You win, you play with a winner, you lose, you play with a looser. So, I got an automatic defeat in the first game due to some problems I've had ( I didn't show up, so it counted as a defeat-0 victory points).
Due to my first automatic defeat now I was gonna play with a "looser" which meant that probably his list wasn't very optimised. I know my list has a weakness, and that is the non-optimised, non-msu lists. So I played with a Black Templar list that went something like this: 3squads of 5 marines each with a lass cannon, 2squads of 5marines-3scouts +HQ's in Rhinos, 1 LandRaider with High Marshal-FC Termies and 3 Typhoon speeders.
The game was Pitched Battle, 4 Objectives.
I destroyed him for the biggest part of the game(turn 3 I had no casualties while he was left with his termies fighting my wraiths and 2squads of 5 man, and 1squad of 8. Unfortunately, one of my wraiths decided to hold the termies for the whole game (kept rolling 3+) and only left them at turn 5 when they only got shot for 1 round (2 Courts, Ghost arks, and 2 Barges targetted them). 1 Terminator with Lightning Claws and the Marshal survived with one wound. They Split up and contested my two objectives, while my 8 man immortal squad lost Close Combat to a single marine and got sweeped. As a result, I lost. Anyway, he was a good player, and my wraith too lucky!
Third game was versus a Salamander list that featured two Landraiders, 10 TH/SS termies, Vulcan, a chaplain and two Drop-Pod Tactical squads.It was Dawn of War-Kill Points I tabled this guy save for a couple of TH/SS termies, while he only killed my Overlords.
Fourth game was versus a Chaos IG list (1 Manticore, 1 Vendetta, 2 Plasmacutioneers, and 6? Chimeras) he had arround 60 veterans with meltas in the vendetta-chimeras and a psycker squad in the other chimera. The game was spearhead-Killpoints. Nightfighting helped me close the gap (spearhead is mean!) and I ended up tabling him as well. My casualties were the 2 CCB's and an Overlord.
Fifth game was versus a well known competitive player and his Guard! His list was something like: 2 Vendetta's, 1 Manticore, 1squadron of 2Hell-hounds, a platoon with Autocannons/Mortar, 4 Chimeras with a CCQ, and 3 squads of 10 veterans(melta etc). He also had a footslogging psycker squad.
The game was Dawn Of War, 5 Objectives.
I played second, let him play alone first turn when I arrived and used my pulse for something like an Alpha Strike. It didn't work. Both My Courts missed, and only one Annihilation Barge managed to destroy a Vendetta while the others Shook another. The Game was very, very close. He focused on my troops that died rather easily due to the Hellhounds (exept for a 5man warrior squad), while I just tried to table him since I wasn't gonna win the objective game. It went pretty well, until the time was up, and he was only left with 1 Manticore, 1 psycker squad (locked in assault with my HQ that was supposed to kill them), one Immobilized/Weap Destroyed Chimera and a 3 man squad from the platoon.It ended up as a draw, because we had to finish the game, time was up.
Generally, the tourney was fun. I could've done better. Unfortunately I lost the first game for no reason, which meant I couldn't really do well, but still it was okay. I realised how strong my list is, and damn it is! In all of my games only once did an Annihilation Barge get wrecked and onle twice a single Ghost Ark while the courts remained unharmed.
I'm afraid I'm kind of bored for a more detail report, and I don't even remember that well, but if you have certain questions as for how I faced different stuff feel free to ask.
