1750 

So 1750 is a bit of a weird one to come back to. After Jolly toys outing (where I came 6th and best wolf general) and ETC 1850 list ideas coming out of my arse - coming back to my old staple without the TWC is a bit of a culture shock. I basically got rid of the speeders. Which is a shame as I really love speeders (the MM/Flamer kind). But what you gonna spend points on? troops or chuff. Troops won this time.

I also like Tempest wrath atm! It can be used in a rhino (as its not targeting anything - its much like a psychic hood ) it gives me a little spanner for DE/Stormraven/ Necron and other types of fast skimmer type stuff to try to wrestle control of the board from. LL is all well and good but it was only ever an auto cannon for me. bloody 2's! Will keep you posted on that progress.

Team Wales are doing really well in the tournament season thus far. lots of podium finishes and lots of people practicing lists in events so we should be onto a winner this year (dare I say surpass the last 1?!!) I nearly told you all what we are taking then but I will hold that one back. you never know who could be watching. safe to say I'm a SW player. I'm not gonna go to the home nations event (end of April) with an untried army again. 

Also, in ETC goodness it turns out that I came second highest SW general at the ETC (behind the child prodigy Tony K) Happy with this seeing as most of my games where played from defense. Actually - very happy! (if only I could turn it on for single play rather than saving it up for European games!)

So going back to the last tournament. The Jolly toys for me. Safe to say I was cursed in the last game again. 13 half range melta shots = 1 immobed raider. 8 the next turn and nothing. Both scouts on the wrong side. 'sigh'. It was a list I should have eaten for breakfast. The dice were just comical. I still nearly won but couldnt move far enough in the last turn so it was a draw in the primary and he won secondary (I had killed 1 KP all game lol) would have been an epic way to win it but sadly I couldn't do enough. Time to try to shake the dice blues off me now. Its not working tho! I lost at my local club with my above(ish) list to pallies! But im gonna blame the dice as I had some nice set plays that just didnt come off. (18 pallies under jaws lines in 1 turn) 8 passed then the other guy perilsed. FUCK SAKE! 

but fair play - it was only a side tactic. I will keep my normal pally coping mechanism for now :D (ignore them!) 


Thats it for me!I will give you another  blog update soo
