This was a 5 round event, scoring was ETC style with 14 points on the battle plan and a further 4 for Hidden Agendas and 2 for Kill Points.
G1 vs @Chris Tomlin and his Order Draconis. He had 2 drops and made me go first. Loss on the major but managed to get a 5 points from the one. It was shifting objectives and it shifted against me late in the game when I didn't have the chance of getting to it. Should have left some lifetakers in the sky!!!
G2 vs Fyreslayers with all the tricks. 20 Hearthguard block with Armour and -1 to wound buffs. I won this by concentrating on the battle plane (places of arcane power) and managed to go all in on the black after I was far enough ahead to have secured the major win. I chose to go first here.
G3 vs @Dangermouse425 and his TerraDan list. in Total Commitment 🥳 Dan went all in for the double turn and didn't get it. It was pretty brutal after that. Dan game me t1
G4 vs @Adymc and Godseekers Hedonites. I took a t1 charge into his whole army with Morathi and buffed witches. Managed to soak up enough damage to let my sisters of slaughter mop up while staying ahead on the battle plan. I chose to go first in this one.
G5 vs @Adam Hall with Godseeker Hedonites, this time the Seeker Cabal list with 6" pile ins. A much tougher list and it went down to the wire. It was nearly all over on turn 2 but a damaged Morathi couldn't quite put down the Epitome to shut off the summoning leaving it with 2 wounds and thh chance to summon back around 50 Depravity points worth of units. Adam game me turn 1. Morathi transformed, took a bunch of buffs and flew into a Keeper killing it in one go.
Highlights were Morathi being a constant baller. In the last game she was 3/4" from the front line but I surrounded her with bodies so the shortest transformation deployment was directly forwards. That meant when I went first and transformed it put her nearly 10" closer to the enemy and she ended up needing a 7" charge.
Also, Witches buffed for defence and taking massive punches every game. Bucklers, Blessing, Martyrs. Its a solid combo. Late game Cauldren of Blood, Witchbrew, Rune of Khaine kills pretty much anything.
I went first in all 5 games!
I rolled a 1 on Blessing of Khaine once all tournament, rolled a few 2's too. Didn't miss Iron Circlet at all. The additional prayer was excellent.
What I did miss was a 2nd spell caster just to add a bit more flexibility in the hero phase. Not sure how I would ever fit it in though. Morathi was in Shadow Queen aspect all tournament.
