Took Stonehorns to EGGS at Element Games. 2 day tournament. Went to 2-3, the 5th coming down to a lost priority roll.
List was the 2 frostlords, and a Jorlbad with 3×2 MF.
About 70% happy with the result, with it being my first 2 day tournament. But save for a changehost tabling turn 2, I can safely say the losses were down to my own misplays or a better opponent.
Felt like I learned a lot for sure. Appreciative to all my opponents for advice or just general chats/banter.
Was vs Tzeentch 1st. Daemons plus 6 skyfires and Kairos. No battalion. Shifting Objectives. Managed to table him. Felt like a decisive victory. Was feeling confident 😂 7VP
But then... doing so well game 1 put me on the top tables for game 2. I drew vs @Ben and his Morathi led Hagg Nar DoK. I realised uh oh, it's that fella whose forum I'm a nuisance on, he knows how to play. The scenario was Total Commitment. Not knowing how Morathi's transform worked, I 'Totally Committed' 3 stonehorns in one single clump in my deployment and she turn one charged me and killed my beastriders. Some other stuff happened and then I lost. @Ben had some sound advice for me in my games to come, while he went on to win the whole thing!
Major Loss. 0VP (7)
Game 3 I drew Changehost. Starstrike. I got double turned and was tabled turn 2. Nice guy though! 😂 Major Loss 1VP (8)
Game 4 I drew Khorne with an awesome magmadroth mercenary. It was Places of Arcane Power. My Ethereal Stonehorn sat down on my left hand objective and never stood up again. Opponent was great fun. I got tabled as well. Major Victory 6VP (14)
Game 5 I drew Beasts of Chaos. Better Part of Valour. 2 drop list with more than a hundred models. Massive footprint. Lots of goats appearing on my board edge. Too many for my backline mournfang to handle. My stonehorns were beasts this game but it was a massive uphill battle with the sheer difference in board coverage. It ended up coming down to a priority roll to see who would get to burn his objectives. I lost the roll. Bit of a bummer! Nice guy though. Major Loss 2VP (16)
Going to move back to Gutbusters now I think. These BCR style lists are too stressful for me haha.
