Sorry that my posts have been, well, non existent but I've been really busy with real life and getting ready for the Throne of Skulls tournament and now that it is over, I wanted to drop a few lines about it and how I did:
I got a qualifying ticket from finishing in the top 3 with my hybrid mech/foot Iyanden Eldar in the 'Ard Boyz tournaments and since then I have been thinking of a fun list with some jetbikes to bring to the Throne of Skulls tournament. Well, I finally put a list together a few months ago, fine-tuned it and actually *GASP* painted my models, or at least got 3 colors on them and based them so that they were legally playable in this tournament.
|My Eldar set up in all of its 3 color minimum requirement glory.|
After that, I drove to Vegas with my lovely, wonderful, supportive and patient wife (if not for her I wouldn't have been able to make it) and threw down for 5 surprisingly fun and challenging games and came out with the title "Best Eldar player". There were at least 10 other Eldar armies competing in various forms ranging from all mech to a full footdar list and the competition was pretty fierce amongst my Eldar brethren but in the end I had the best score, huzzah!
|Now to take a label maker and glue "EVAR" over the "2011"|
part of the award and I can retire =).
So with that said, I will eventually be posting battle reports of all of my games along with my thoughts on the format/tournament as a whole. In the meantime, feel free to post any comments/questions any of you might have and don't worry, Charlie, I have not forgotten about your request for an Altioc style battle report to be posted!
