Hello everyone Frankie here to talk a little about an upcoming tournament.
Our team (Team 0 Comp) decided to all make the trip up to Seattle for the TSHFT Open. It will be this coming weekend January 10-11th. There should be a really good turn out player count wise and top level competition. Were bringing at least 3 top level players and of course the one and only “best player in the world” …me! I told the other guys that they probably shouldn’t get their hopes up since I am going to be playing for the gold. I guess there is always 2nd and 3rd place. Haha anyways it should be a blast and Seattle is a fun city.
So lets go ahead and talk about the list I’m bringing. Im bringing my Dark Eldar that I have talked about before. It consists of four Venoms with Splinter Cannons, three Ravagers with Dark Lances, three Razorwing Fighter Jets, two different Llhamen in the HQ slot (from the Court of the Archon), two five man Kabalite Warrior squads, and last but not least the Corpse Claw Formation. The Corpse Claw is the formation from the Hameonculus Supplement that comes with five Talos with Twin Linked Splinter Cannons, I also give them the Ichor Injectors. I think the list is very solid and can take on any list that is thrown at it. I have anit air, anti tank and plenty of anti infantry. The hardest list for me to beat would be either Knight spam, or Tau with sniper drones.
Now the lists I’m going to be seeing this weekend will be Flyrant spam lists which I think I will be able to handle with all of the Splinter Cannons I have and the three Flyers. Another very popular list that I will be seeing is the Centurion star. That will be a little more difficult since they have so many shots and will kill a lot of my Talos in one shot. Against the Centurion star I will need to play defensive with the Talos and try to bring them down with my long range shooting. That might be the toughest army I will see this weekend. Another list that I am sure I will be seeing will be the Eldar Wave Serpent spam. Unfortunately they will kill most of my long range shooting before I have a chance to answer. Luckily the Talos will be pretty much impossible for them to kill and will control the table for me. Lastly I’m sure I will be seeing some of the new Blood Angels. I believe I can take on that army but it will be a tough match and really come down to how the dice fall in my Close Combats.
Talking about all these lists really gets me excited to see how mine will hold up against some of the best West Coast players around. I believe my list has the tools to bring home the gold and with me steering the ship it will be of course, unstoppable. Haha, I hope some of you guys will be there and I will be getting in a lot of practice this week so hope you all are bringing your A game. Thank you for reading and let’s all grab some drinks this weekend and have a blast at the TSHFT Open GT 2015!!! Oh yeah, and I won it last year, so come at me, Bros!!
