Hey guys, Son of Adam here from MasterCraft Gaming to give you another tournament review. This last weekend I attended a tournament at Stomping Grounds Games and Hobbies out in Warminster PA. At the forefront, I apologize for the lack of pictures, I was the only one from MasterCraft to go to the event and I only have my phone camera (plus I forgot to take pics with it).
It was a great event for this new store. They were setup to accommodate 32 players and had the event fully catered with some great food that was available all day. There were three missions that were NOVA-like with some small changes and 2000 points per side with all new rules except a limit on fortifications due to size.
I brought an Eldar list that I have been trying to hone for NOVA and got matched up against a very shooty Dark Eldar army played by Larry in the first match. He was a very friendly guy and had a nice yellow/black color scheme for his army. The mission was: Primary-Quarters, Secondary-Objectives, and Tertiary-KP’s, with a Dawn of War deployment. The game ended with me trying to catch up to his fliers in order to contest them for quarters, but I ended up with the win.
My second match was against an eldar played by Timmy. He took the current net list with two full wraitguard squads, a seer council, eldrad, and three wraithlords. The missions was: P-Objectives, S-Quarters, and T-KP’s with a Vanguard deployment. This match was a real slugfest. Most of both Timmy and my armies were whitled down by the end, but my punny little scoring units ended up killing his little scoring units to net the win.
The final match was against Frank from Ice House Warriors with his IG and demons allies. The mission was: P-KP’s, S-Objectives, T-Quarters with a Hammer and Anvil deployment. He really put the hurt on all my force, but the council ended up holding out and the game came down to the secondary objective which I held.
All in all it was a great time and a lot of fun. All the guys I played against were fair, challenging, and fun to play. I’m looking forward to the next event they hold.
I ended up getting interviewed by 11th company podcasts afterwards! I will be putting up the link when they publish it.
