Tournament Report Ducosim XVII (pictures heavy)

Last Saturday me and a buddy went to the local steamroller. 16 people showed up for 4 rounds of caster kills. I took two lists, one with Morghoul and one with Zaal. The Morghoul list was made to fight against Hordes, Zaal for fighting Warmachine.

My Morghoul army; Front row: Void spirit, Canonneer, Snapjaw, Agonizer, Wrong eye, Smoke Gobbers, Brine, Rorsh and Orin Midwinter. Back row: Soulwarden and Morghoul. (click on the picture to get a bigger version)

My Zaal list; Front to back: Full unit of Ferox, Void spirit, Ancestral Guardian, min Karax, min Immortals, Zaal, Soulwarden and Canonneer. (click on the picture to get a bigger version)

My first battle I ended against one of the stronger players with his Circle of Orgoreos (Goreish Circle) with his Krueger list.

In short, his list was brutal (and a classic), he played brutal and he brutalized Morghoul. Well done! This nice chap ended up 3th of the tournament and also got the he most VPs award.

The next battle was against a nice guy who brought. Amon, 4 jacks and some solo's.

We closed in, danced around a little bit, he feated, destroyed most of my infantry with his sandstorms and Jacks. The turn after I feated, had a lot of counters and the remaining solo's and cavalry charged in and slaughtered everything except Amon and half his choir. The turns after my army mobbed up the rest and killed Amon.

Next battle was against a person I already know a little better Ahknas. He played his Caine list against my Zaal list. I did get a resonanced charge in on his knights, but mostly he just shot the hell out of me. Another of my better points was shooting a ghostsighted cannonball through a rock and into Aiyana and Holt. The game ended with Zaal death and him not having more then Caine and a few solo's.

My last battle was versus Legion, was getting tired, so forgot to take pictures.
He had Vayl, two Carnies, Seraph and full Knights. He was basically kicking my ass, killing most of my stuff, but luckily I managed to pull of the enraged-pigheaded-diversiontactics-Brine trick and killed Vayl because his Carnies could not be transferred to because of Morgs feat.

So I ended with two wins, two loses and a lot of VPs which put me at the 6th or 7th place, but best of all, I won the best painted award (hurray for me!) Close-ups will follow later, but here is a picture of my tray (click for a bigger picture):
