25-09-2011 Independent club tournament

By Arion Spyridis.(A fellow member of the Battle Bunker Club)

On the 25th of September an event was planed with the collaboration of two Independent gaming clubs, Espairos (ΕΣΠΑΙΡΟΣ) and our own Battle bunker. The concept was to take the Greek tournament experience to the next level, from the rule set to the actual tabletop game.

Months where spent creating impressively stunning and exiting terrain pieces.

The event managed to gather an impressive number of players for Greek standards, a total of 36.

I would be using a all around Grey Knights list.

The first match up was with Eldar, one of the older codices around but for no reason an easy game.

The Eldar roster had a total of 8 gravtanks and a large number of fire dragons.
This meant I had to get those fire breathing grav tanks open ASAP!

The game was 2 objectives and standard setup.

A task the Knights where up for! The two rifle dreds, stormraven and Vindicare did quick work of the gravtanks and prism tanks.

The game ended in the favor of my grey knights with 1750 vps to my favor and 0 for the Eldar thanks to correct target priority.

After a short break I would be facing the menacing Tyranids, never having faced Tyranids with my Grey Knights I would be having my plate full!

The game was multiple objectives and dawn of war, this meant I would be missing an entire turn of shooting and Giving the Nids a chance to move and run up field fast.

I knew I had to take out the zoanthope, Hive Tyrant fast and the cover giving venomthropes!

The rifle dreads did quick work of the venomthropes since they where vulnerable to Strength 8 instant death weapons, and the Hive was sniped easily with the 4 mindstrike missiles(4 perils of the warp) from the stormraven.

In the end the game ended with my Grey Knights wining 2 to 1 Vps and 1610 vps for me and 400 or so for the Tyranids. The extra vps where earned from the tervigons birthing every turn.

After a short Lunch break we finaly came in for the third and final game.

For the third game I would be facing the Mighty deathwing, 30 stormshield wielding terminators led by Belial and 2 multi-melta landspeaders.

Luckily I had a lot of experience against this particular deathwing combination.

I knew I had thin their ranks before getting into combat, stormshields seem to have a resilient effect on this game.

The game was quarters and killpoints, which made it at least challenging for me with all those terminators against me.

If I could some up this game it would characterized simply by a lack of ability to hit anything and save anything on both sides, luckily I had rerolls on a few of my units.

The game was over in about an hour with a total wipe out of the deathwing, 1750vps for my Grey Knights and 0 for the deathwing.

In the end Battle bunker Managed to get two out of the three cups Best general and Overall winner.

It was one the best planed and executed event I have ever attended, the terrain was stunning, the Judges where exceptional and the over all gaming experience was superb!

Cant wait for the next event!
