Tournament this weekend

As I said before, caanaan and I are going to a doubles tournament this weekend.  I have been told that there is one more slot available, so if there is another pair out there that would like to attend, please contact Spaguatyrine at:
aaronaleong -at- yahoo -dot-com

The tournament will be at Games 2 Die 4, and will consist of two 1000 point forces per team.  Registration is $20 per team.  There are no soft scores.

Caanaan and I are taking Black Templars and Witch Hunters.  Both armies are close-quarter fighters and are ready to bring the pain.  They also both suffer from old codices, and could be outclassed by a good player with a newer book.  We'll have to rely on wits and shenanigans to prevail.  Here's what I'm looking out for:

  • Spaguatyrine has stepped down as TO to play in the tournament with his son.  I'm expecting to see a combination of his IG and Thunderwolf Space Wolf armies.  Spaguatyrine is a good player, and this army combo could be really tough.
  • Scottydont has won multiple tournaments with his Daemons and Vulkan Salamanders.  These two armies paired together could be quite nasty.  Scottydont's son has started playing his Daemons, with some good results (he nearly tabled me at the last Hive Fleet Indy tournament I played in).
  • SandWyrm and Farmpunk would pose a threat with their IG and Witch Hunters duo.  This army would create quite a gun-line, and would act as the paper to our rock.
  • There are several other good players in the area that, if paired together correctly, could be quite fearsome.
In the end, I don't know if we will face any of these match-ups, or if they even exist.  We'll come to the tournament in our usual fashion; ready to have a good time and give other players a challenging game.  I hope to see some of you there.


  1. If there's any way you can post pictures after the fact, I'd love to see the BTs in action.

    Good luck!

  2. Good luck, Bro. Give 'em hell!

  3. I don't think we've settled on what we're playing.

    do we do IG and WH?
    IG and IG?
    DH and anything? (yeah we rolled our eyes)
    BA's and WH?
    BA's and BA's?
    WH and WH?

    SandWyrm and I will probably call each other Saturday night, and decide what goes in the boxes.

  4. @Farmpunk: I would prefer either DH and BA or DH and WH. :)

  5. @Shane: thanks, that's my plan

    @Loquacious: I've got the camera charging now.
