Well its been a week since NOVA and wanted to update you all on how I did at the tournament, after some much needed rest. Let me start by saying I really like this event very much overall, it is a different type of tournament than what I usually play, and besides the really great people that is the biggest reason I attend this event. The tournament works as follows; there were 220 people in the grand tournament, with a guaranteed 6 games, and the possibility of getting to play 8 games over three days. Each round played you get paired up against someone with the same record as you, and after the first four games you get placed in a mini tournament with 16 people, with the same record as you. Now after your games 5 and 6 the top four players from the mini tournaments move onto round 7, and the winners of the round player for their bracket championship.
Okay so now we know how the tournament works on to me. I did not make it to the finals to start, in fact I did not make it to rounds 6 and 7, oh well. I went 2 - 4 overall on the weekend, with a win in my first game, and a win in my last game. with three of my losses coming in the last part of the turn in the final turns, and i played on major DB (Deutsche Bag).
|My army in all its glory|
|My Second Oppenent|
|His sisters army deployed|
|His glorious Eldar army|
My next game, game 4 is to be expunged from my memory, so we will not discuss it any further, I lost.
My game 5 was against last years second place tournament winner, Allan Hernandez. Unfortunately the pictures of his army did not come out so I can't post them. Allan also played Eldar, And we had another great game. I lost int he last turn when his reaver jet bike squad turbo charged over a five man tactical squad to contest an object to tie the primary, and ended up killing the whole squad with my lovely armour save rolls. this kill put him up by one kill point again an netted him the win, grrrrrr. was a fun game though.
|Game 6 opponent|
Mike was my final opponent of the tournament, and he was running a lovely painted Draigo wing. This was a table quarter game, and I won it on the secondary object, using my mobility to avoid mr nasty and his funky bunch, tie the quarters, and capture 3 of the 5 objectives. was a fun game, and we were both really tired after some many game splayed that day.
Well there you have it my, my 2012 NOVA track record, I really like this event, plan to go again next year, and had a great time. I do think though for next year, I am going to make and army specifically for this tournament, as i think if I would have done that this year I would have done a little better.
