Russ S - Vampires
Russ Took a Vamp bus of Black knights. He also took a unit of Blood Knights which had been sitting in ol'castle Simister for far too long due to meta. He positioned the Blood Knights on the flank of his main force and I forgot to take advantage of their frenzy. Luckily for me he failed his charge into my flank with the Bloodies which meant I could mop them up with the Silverhelm bus and BSB. With them out of the way unfortunately I had too much fast moving stuff and eventually Russ's Vamp bus had to face multiple rear, flank charges for the game. Top player and good friend, I'm sure Vamps will rise again to terrorise the old world.

Ryan S - Warriors
Great to see Ryan back in the country and always happy to get another game in against the blue Chaos. He ran a Shag-off (haha), Knight bus, Crushers, Warriors and a concession Lvl 2. With all my fast moving stuff the Warriors were always at a disadvantage as I dictated when and where I would charge. My Lion Chariot accounted for the Shag-off (never gets old), and with multiple chariots and magic taking care of the Warriors it was down to Eltharion and multiple chargers against the Warriors General. Eltharion on Stormwing triumphs and Mind Razor helped on the Silver helms too.

Nick L-I - Wood Elves
Meeting Engagement and I thought I had the advantage here. Nick proved to me yet again how good a general he was and started picking my army apart with precise bow fire. I was bleeding points and with a Flank lost to two panic checks and my units running off the table, I needed to regain a large chunk of points to stay in the game. The Wood Elf army had occupied buildings and were shooting behind fences which nullified my own shooting. So a last ditch effort to get some points back I charged his Treeman with Eltharion knowing full well that this offered Nick a Flank charge with his Eternal guard bunker. A flank charge into my Lord in the proceeding turn. That stubborn Treeman wasn't going to break with General and BsB nearby.
To top off the Enternal Guard bus charging in he gets Transformation of Kadon to bring his Carmine Dragon on the board (such a cool mini!). I was down lots of stactic res. Nick challenges with the unit Champ and Eltharion with Stormwing causes the maximum overkill and loses combat, but only by 1. This meant I could support the main fight in the middle and eventually win the grind.

John W - Brettonians
Watch Tower. I didn't think I would have the army to take on the bus drivers. With nothing really capable of opening tin cans apart from combat and risking 5+ wards to ruin the party it was going to be a hard game. I decided to attack the Bret flank and hold the tower for the win. So some aggressive play saw me charging into the Brettonian flank with my Lord turn2... He fluffed or the 5+ wards were too overpowering and the pillow fight that ensued meant the Tower was the only thing that was going to offer a big points haul this round. John cometted the watch tower and we both fluffed heaps of dice. So Bloody, So many Pillow fights, must rem to change dice out.
10-10 (Highe Elves ~150pts up)
Kelly G - Dark Elves
Dawn Attack. Only had 2 games against the New Dark Elves so wasn't really familiar with them. Kelly is a great player and is the only player to table me in a tournament. I was feeling the effects of fatigue being soft and out of practice in actually playing a full tournament. I decided to go full tilt straight ahead and with all my force moving maximum towards the DE line. I found out the hard way how good some of the units are especially the Sisters of slaughter. With their special rules and rerolls to wound even my dual chariot charge including Eltharion into the 12 of them was a losing one. This changed the whole perspective of the game as I saw it turn one. So from a good advantage I was left to pull out all stops and grab strategic points to save this one. Well played my opponent and I learnt heaps and thats why we play Hammer right guys?!! Thats right, so bloody good!

Glen T - Brettonians
Glen Brought a superb army all themed on the movie 'Kingdom of Heaven'. If you haven't seen the movie then you should go out and see it now. He had 3 units of knights, big block of men at arms, Grail reliquary and the usual reroll stuff characters. Glen deployed one unit of knights in the middle and the other two units on one flank. This gave me a opportunity to just ramp his weak flank and divert his main stay. High Elves killed alot of peasants that day and without a BSB his general eventually fled from panic and was run down by an Eagle. Great game against a top bloke. Thanks for still giving me a lift home after bro, you can smash me at club!
