    Nah, it won’t work. But it is crazy.

    Real life has intervened in the form of the dayjob and various household and familial duties, and I have not painted a single solitary model in over a week. So now I’m not going to have time to get the lists I’d originally planned on painted up for my first tournament this weekend in Nashville.

    So, I have written a list containing all my painted models and some I think I can get painted up (twenty Skinks and three Ripperdactyl Riders) and it came up to 1990 points.

    We’re actually required to bring two lists to the tournament, but the differences between them can be as simple and small as swapping out Artefacts or Command Traits, so I’ll probably just change the Saurus Oldblood on Carnosaur over to Thickly Scaled Hide for my #2 list and call it a day.

    I’ll spend this week painting the remaining models, coming up with some kind of display board, and studying the five Battleplans we’ll be playing with an eye toward having some kind of initial strategy for each, given my wackadoodle army roster.

    My goals for the weekend, beyond having a great time, meeting new people, and learning a lot, were originally to achieve one victory and score twenty of the available twenty-five sports points, and I think I’ll stick with that. After all, with five games in the offing, my dice will have to be preternaturally hot in at least one of them, right? Probability allows for that!

    Here’s the list! It was carefully built around the classic strategy of “what looks like it would be fun to paint next?”

    It's a bit all over the place, but I'm not pointing out anything you didn't know already :p I think you could very well take the occasionnal game with a bit of tactics / luck, but that's pretty much what Warhammer is in the end! I wish you good luck and have fun!

    Depending on the objectives, shadowstrike could win you a game and if your dice are hot you never know.
