Duel Con In-Action Report (40K Results Posted)

Duel Con Logo (1)

We’re well underway with Duel Con, here’s some updates of the action! This will be updated as we gather more data.

Duel Con has been a lot of fun so far and the 40K events have gone smoothly.

Friday Dreadnought Battle Royale

18 Dreadnoughts enter, 1 Dreadnought leave! It was a super fun event, 18 players each brought a Dreadnought of their choice to battle it out in a team event, 9 on 9! The team Frankie and I were on had 4 Contemeptors, 2 Venerable Riflemen and a Ven Las/Missile Dread, a Furioso and an Ironclad against 4 Bjorns(!!), A Furioso, and 4 Venerables!

Our team jumped out to an early lead with some clever movement and targeting of key enemy models, but in an act of terrible betrayal, Frankie and Josh from our team, controlling the venerable Riflemen, shoot Stave Stiff and I in the back!

The Emperor protects, however, and we survived, turned around and blew them both away. Traitors die in shame!

Despite the treachery, our team still won decisevly and after tearing the other team to bits the survivors of our team fought it out until only 1 Dread remained, and it was Tanker and his Crimson Fists Contemptor dread with a Power Fist and Twin Las. Well done and that was a super fun event, definitely something to try in your own clubs!

Friday Team Tournament

Friday was the Team Event, won by “Grinders, Turkeys and Spawn, oh My!” A CSM and Daemon combo. Congratz to them!

Second was “Awkward Family Reunion,” a Dark Eldar and Eldar combo.

Third was “Rage Quit, Table Flip,” a CSM team that got third because of the bonus points they earned with the super cool costumes and themes, including their Chaotic Resumes which they handed out to all of their opponents. Nice!

Warmahordes Friday Events

The top team was Victor, Mathew and Luis, “Team One!” They were playing Legion, Trollbloods and Skorne!

In the 20pt Mangled Metal event, it was:

  1. Victor Benavidez: Legion
  2. Ryan Chiriboga: Cryx
  3. Steve Hughitt: Trollbloods

Warmachine Saturday Steamroller Results (50pts)

  1. Jason Flanzer: Trollbloods
  2. Ryan Chiriboga: Cryx
  3. Charles DeCelles: Cygnar

40K Championships

The 40K event is into round 5 of 5, and we have a Daemon on Daemon final! We have a solid mix of armies and as usual, not much Forgeworld to speak of apart from the occasional cool model such as a Tomb Stalker and a handful of Contemptor Mortis Dreads (even with their recent nerf).

We’re way too early in to see who will come out on top, but so far we have a good spread. I will continue to update this with info as we go through the rounds.

Being a chaos player, i would be very interested to know the CSM/Deamon winning list…Always interested in learning new possibilities.

I was one of the two members of GTSOM. Our list was;

Lord of Change with Exalted Reward, Greater Reward
Chaos Lord with Bike, Mark of Nurgle, Sigil of Corruption, Black Mace, Powerfist, Blight Grenades
4 Fiends
10 Cultists
10 Plaguebearers
10 Plaguebearers
Heldrake with Baleflamer
Heldrake with Baleflamer
5 Nurgle Spawn
Grinder with MoS, Torrent
Grinder with MoS, Torrent
3 Nurgle Oblits

We decided for a more threat overload approach, and it worked pretty well. More importantly, all 3 games were super fun, and it was a great warm up to the GT.

Having 1-2 LOS blocking terrain makes for a better game generally.

Great tourney! Played five fun and challenging games against five fun guys.

Have to say, I’m pretty disappointed that the final game at top table ended on turn four…..

Right right right. And lots of psychic powers too. However, something tells me that if they both were under threat of loss if unable to complete turn 5, they would have found a way to get there.

I ran the following:
Baron
Haemonculi w/ liquifyer and venom blade
Farseer jetbike and runes of re-roll one PSI test
5 incubi in a raider with aethersails, flicker, night shield
3 trueborn with 2 SC, in venoms w/ 2 SC, nightshields
3 trueborn with 2 SC, in venoms w/ 2 SC, nightshields
Beast pack with 3 masters, 4 razorwing, 1 clawed fiend
5 wracks w/ liquifyerguns in venoms w/ SC, nightshields
ravager w/ NS
ravager w/ NS
ravager w/ NS
4 windrider jetbikes

I didn’t end up taking my trick to beat the screamer star because I needed to buff my troops. Perhaps I should have. The screamer star stole on me on a KP mission~ rough.

It was a super fun event. Every player i played was a great guy! I didn’t see any WAAC players. Anyone thinking about comicazi should do it!
