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.

    Only one undefeated tau player? Are people bringing out their anti-riptide tech?

    • Reecius
      Reecius September 28, 2013 3:34 pm #

      No, just not that many Tau players here, hahaha

  2. Xaereth September 28, 2013 5:23 pm #

    How many total players in the 40k tournament?

    • Reecius
      Reecius September 29, 2013 8:53 am #

      32 for the tournament and another 30 for casual/non-competitive events.

      • Kwodd October 3, 2013 9:28 am #

        You have Ryan Mead’s Nid list?

        • Kwodd October 3, 2013 9:30 am #

          Derp a derp found it.

  3. Madcore September 28, 2013 5:26 pm #

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

    • Jaybie September 28, 2013 10:37 pm #

      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.

      • Madcore September 29, 2013 5:29 am #

        Tks for the reply, very nice of you…go Chaos 🙂

    • Reecius
      Reecius September 29, 2013 8:53 am #

      We will collect the top 4 lists to repost for sure.

  4. Skari September 28, 2013 5:28 pm #

    Nice to see the dark kin being represented well!

    • Reecius
      Reecius September 29, 2013 8:54 am #

      Yeah, they’re looking good! Got a tough draw against Screamerstar Daemons to start the final 4.

  5. steven morrow September 28, 2013 7:45 pm #

    hows the terrain?

    • Reecius
      Reecius September 29, 2013 8:54 am #

      Generally excellent, lots of it and adequate LoS blocking. We had a Taudar player complaining that he couldn’t see the entire table so I feel that we did our job!

      • steven morrow September 29, 2013 10:06 am #

        Yes! The beast has a weakness

        • Reecius
          Reecius September 29, 2013 12:24 pm #

          Haha, success!

        • Krieg XXIX September 29, 2013 10:11 pm #

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

          • Reecius

            #

            Agreed 100% It changed the game for the better.

  6. Jadedknight September 28, 2013 8:25 pm #

    Curious what the GK list is running for troops.

    • Reecius
      Reecius September 29, 2013 8:55 am #

      Lots of Henchmen.

      • Nor September 29, 2013 10:38 am #

        Razorback-spam ?

        • Reecius
          Reecius September 29, 2013 12:25 pm #

          No, all on foot. He didn’t have any vehicles in his list. It was a weird one, with a Psyoculum and such, really different.

          • Krieg XXIX September 29, 2013 9:40 pm
            #

            He had a big unit of sniper Kroot for the allied contingent.

  7. TableTopJosh September 29, 2013 4:40 pm #

    I would absolutely love to see that Nid list! Thanks for the info Frontline gaming, appreciate all your posts!

    • Krieg XXIX September 29, 2013 9:42 pm #

      He had the following:
      2 Dakka Flyrants
      2 Tervigons
      2 Gaunt Broods
      Doom + Pod
      Gargoyles
      2 Dakka Fexs

      His army was fast and had great board control and firepower.

      • TableTopJosh September 30, 2013 6:38 am #

        Thanks! Were the Dakka Fexs in pods? That would be pretty fun.

        • Krieg XXIX September 30, 2013 6:55 am #

          Fexs walked.

      • RageQuit September 30, 2013 9:49 am #

        I also had 3 biovores

    • bigpig September 30, 2013 12:38 am #

      Flyrant (maybe 2), 2 maybe 3 Tervigon, Doom, Hive Guard or Zoans, and mix the rest to taste 🙂

      Actually, I’d love to see it also. Post it up!

  8. Paul Cornelius September 30, 2013 12:18 am #

    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…..

    • Reecius
      Reecius September 30, 2013 11:28 am #

      To their credit, they were in combat starting turn 1.

      • Paul Cornelius September 30, 2013 3:28 pm #

        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.

        • Reecius
          Reecius September 30, 2013 3:38 pm #

          Oh I am sure, but they came to a pretty conclusive finish. As we said there though, we’re considering Chess clock if only for the finals and top tables.

  9. Hoboanarki September 30, 2013 4:06 am #

    Anyone know what the sisters player took?

  10. Believer September 30, 2013 5:37 am #

    I’d be curious to know what the Dark Eldar player ran. Anyone remember?

  11. Rancid Blade September 30, 2013 12:37 pm #

    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!

  12. Thomas September 30, 2013 6:53 pm #

    So an assault based army won – isn’t that like heresy in 6th?

    • Reecius
      Reecius October 1, 2013 10:39 am #

      Don’t drink the Kool-Aide, assault is alive and well and Daemons are the hard counter to the current Riptide Tau fad. They are excellent against Eldar Seprent Spam, too.

  13. Julnlecs September 30, 2013 9:28 pm #

    The winner used a psychic shooting based army. Using lots of flickering fire.

    • Reecius
      Reecius October 1, 2013 10:38 am #

      He had 2 units of Khorne Dogs, a Screamerstar, Fateweaver and a bunch of troops. Very powerful list. I hate the Screamerstar as I feel that no unit in the game should be able to get a 2++ reroll save, but that said, it was an expertly written list and Gareth played it very well.

  14. Noah September 30, 2013 10:24 pm #

    Someone correct me if im wrong but I believe the army that won was the the one in the third picture from the top?

  15. dada October 4, 2013 1:58 pm #

    Does anyone have Jason Hickle’s list?

    • Reecius
      Reecius October 4, 2013 2:14 pm #

      He was running 2 Serpents, Shadow Spectres, 2 Hornets, War Walkers, Rangers and a Farseer, I believe.

      • dada October 5, 2013 5:41 am #

        Oh! spectres how cool is that, i was thinking of using them as warp spiders, but looks like i don’t have to.

        • Reecius
          Reecius October 5, 2013 9:14 am #

          yup, we allow FW units in all of our events =)

    • Krieg XXIX October 21, 2013 7:17 pm #

      Farseer
      3x Dire Avengers w/Waveserpents
      2 Hornets
      Warpspiders
      Shadow Specters
      Night Spinner

  16. Brian October 8, 2013 5:56 pm #

    Yeah, echoing Hoboanarki, anyone have the Sisters list or (more importantly) a photo? I read the army was beautiful and I want to check it out!

    • Reecius
      Reecius October 9, 2013 11:36 am #

      It’s an insanely beautiful army, just not done yet. When finished, it will destroy people in painting competitions. There are a few photos in the photo post.
