The Great Devourer - The Build Up!

Well, its been an eventful few weeks. Namely, I've now managed to reach 70 victories in row!! I'm aiming for 100, but this may be a little bit ambitious depending on how the 'Great Devourer' tournament goes in March, which brings me onto the main reason for this post.

'The Great Devourer' is a young tournament, boasting a rough attendance of 500 gamers, spread throughout WHFB, WH40K and LoTR, this is the largest tournament of its kind held in the UK. The points limit for the WH40K side of things is 1750, hence my previous post questioning if this will become a more common sight across the tournament scene.

Moving on! I have some reservations about the tournament. After recently contacting the organisers, it seems they were not familiar with the 'GT House Rules' packs that are available, nor were they planning to enforce any official Errata documents. After a chat over the phone, they are now going to review the tournaments structure and consider some amendments. On a serious note, I do have some concerns about the tournament, and will most likely end up offering some form of assistance on the day.

So, thats covered now! Moving onto the main event... The list I am planning to take to the tournament is listed below. I've taken a great amount of time in working out how it will perform against different units, and various list types I am likely to find at 1750, and can safely say I feel confident in how it will perform. I'll be posting pictures up shortly documenting the armies progress as I embark on the painting side of things.... (yawn!! lol).

  2. The best thing you can do is write to yourself! (Bare with me on this lol).

    Get yourself a small notebook and write down key things to remember about the rules as bullet points and refer to your notepad at the start of each turn. Also, write down a "play" order for your army in your turn. For example:

    1 - Move Tactical Squad 1
    2 - Move Razorback
    3 - Move Predator
    4 - Move Vindicator

    You get the idea. I did this for my first few tournaments and it really helped. Ignore if anyone says anything.

    I hope that helps!!
