Mr One here. Right I'm not usually a blogger. Face to Face is how I roll. We have an Inter Club Championship on Sunday and as a result I have been dragged kicking and screaming out of my semi retired state.
When I was first approached I was told that this was a friendly tournament no net lists or spamming etc. A meeting of fellow gamers with a few games thrown in.
But after seeing some lists its seem to be less about friendly lists and instead about how far can people push the friendly boundary before it's called spamming or a beardy list. If something is Codex legal should it be allowed after all its a war game and army's never play friendly when at war or can they be any such as a friendly game.
At MAWS we used to seem to have a nice balance of friendly and spam within our Meta as if anyone really spammed out then they would start to lose opponents. Though as you can see via the recent blog posts the beard emerges.
So what do people think are friendly competitions possible are is everyone an ard boyz wanting to disperse pain and retribution to fellow gamers.
Now Rant over:
List for Sunday a Standard Vanilla Marine Half Company List (no Spam):
Chaplain Bob (jump pack Chaplin with melta bombs) - Thought Cassius was a step too far for a friendly tourney.
10 Man Assault Squad with 2 plasma pistols and power fist.
10 Man Devestator Squad with 2 Missile Launchers and 2 Heavy Bolter- Thought 4 missile launchers was spamming out.
10 Man Tactical with Missile Launcher & Flamer. Sgt with CCW and BP in Rhino.
10 Man Tactical with Melta Gun and Multi Melta with Sgt with PF in Rhino.
10 Man Tactical with Plasma Gun and Plasma Cannon Sgt with CCW & BP in Rhino.
Predator with TL Lascannon and HB sponsons.
So I will head to the competition with my head held high safe in the fact I have taken a balanced friendly all comers list. I have a feeling I will either scape a draw but will more likely come away with 3 defeats but we shall see. So Mr One signing off.
Fight the Beards!!!
