Next up was more GK's with 3 landraiders but no termi's main mission kill points, the only time I was to see these gk's was on turn one when they got out to shoot my daemon princes before getting back into the raiders that just went a round killing stuff.
Just one of those games that can happen at tournaments Chris did what he had to do to win but a game that both players forget as soon as it's over.
Next up was Tau with the new dex in use as it was out a full month before hand I can only put the reason for it been a permitted inthe tournament down to the fact that the TO is a big fish type people fan & was using them as the by buster list.
This was again main mission objectives & then the other things as well.
John lined all his Tau up & I did what I do a lot of the time when I play Tau I just rushed across the table to assault them.
You really can get across the table so fast in 6th ed & this was not good news for the Tau.
This was to all so turn in to a very one sided game with me tabling poor John
So ended day one with two more games to come tomorrow with the first one against Lenny a club mate.
Above Lenny's mascot & below mine.
Sadly I can't bring mine to a tournament sorry girl.
Lenny & myself had squared off in the club only a little over a week before with two very similar lists & had had a good game so here was hoping for more of the same.
Lenny has a lovely flesh tearers army & likes to get stuck in as do I.
My DP's seemed to have gotten the idea over the weekend that when ever someone shoots at you in the sky just pull in your wings to make yourself a smaller target, the problem with this is they fall out of the sky went they do it.
Lenny never got to get into combat with the DP's as I thing they left the powerarmour I'd payed for for them & I'd say he'd wished with would have been the same with the spawns.
But sadly for me it was to go in Lenny's favour, but in games like this no one loses as there always great fun.
Two nicely painted armies who said pretty boys can't fight.
So we came to the last game with me going up against the by buster list.
But this it not one of those give me by busters lists oh no this is Paul playing his newest Tau list.
This was my 3rd game with Tau since their new dex came out but I knew this would not be like the other two.
So I just did what I usually do with Tau I just line up for the rush across the table,
Only problem was this game was down the table not across it, but to tbh it wouldn't have mattered.
This was a lesson in what the new Tau can do & it's fairly effective & I'm sure Paul will have a lot of fun & will very well with them.
So all in all some very different games over the weekend & a tournament I needed to go to to quieten a inner daemon once & for all, for tournaments like anything else in life that you decide to give up will at times be missed.
This is the right time & way for me to once & for all give up tournaments as it means my last game was with a club mate who is one of the very best players out there, now admittedly wasn't like older times when we played in tournaments on the upper tables but for me its a good way to go.
It also means I walk away from tournaments as a winner as I won the best army award so all in all not a bad way to go.
Below some more pictures from other tables.
