So ANZAC weekend I'll be in Australia catching up with the Shirts Off crew, meaning a huge excuse for the first ever Joel-con! (I wanted it to be named "Joel-Fest").
4 games, 2000pts where the comp is "a chance to try out the UK masters lists...but don't be a d*ck" (Aussie vernacular for "try to self comp, but aim for the tough end")
Since I have to get my army through customs I'm naturally taking the men of the Empire and based my list on the Empire list that pulled out of the UK masters at the last minute.
Arch Lector "Otto": ha, gw, 4+ ward, helm of the skavenslayer
Bsb: fullplate, enchanted shield, warriorbane
Captain of the empire: Pegasus, fullplate, shield, lance, dragon helm
33 halberds: fc
7 archer detach
5 knights: m
5 knights: m
4 demigryph knights: m, sb
So the obvious list is to double banishment up and go pure mounted... But I compromised there for some extra movement and some foot troopers + no arcane magic items to shut down magic phases???dark elves don't like net of amynok right?
Now I'm expecting to spend all 4 games being ran around by yawn-fest dark elves, shot apart by high elves, and rail roaded...however I think my list is offensive enough (and in no way a gun line given the shooting limitations of stanks) to hopefully go up the guts of someone willing to put a block of something down for me to aim at!
In case the list is a bit beyond the pale given the panel comp fetish Aussies seem to have I'll also bring over a helblaster, engineer and a cannon to swap out 1 Mage and a stank. This would put the lvl 4 on heavens and the lvl1 on lore of fire (maybe). Spare 10pts could become something...maybe a banner on the Demi's...
Any who that's it for now. Good Friday will see an awesome 40k event so expect pics and reports!
