    So this is a new adventure for me, as I've never played a tournament before. Hopefully, I'm posting this in the proper forum (didn't seem to make sense for Lists or Battle Reports). Anyway, the tournament is one day, on 4/27 at a local game store (not GW). Here's the info I currently have:
    -----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    2000 points
    All GHB 2019 rules and points in effect.
    Realmscape rules and features will be in effect.
    Secondary objectives will be in effect.
    Three rounds beginning at high noon.
    Each round will last two hours and thirty minutes.

    Round one: Blood and Glory in the realm of Ulgu.
    * No additional realmscape features other than additional spells and command abilities.

    Round two: Three Places of Power in the realm of Shyish.
    * Realmscape feature: Atherquake Aftershocks in addition to additional spells and command abilities.

    Round three: Gifts from the Heavens in the realm of Chamon.
    * Realmscape feature: Irresistible force in addition to additional spells and command abilities.

    Secondary objectives will be rolled at the beginning of each game.
    -----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    If you PM me I am willing to share some of the ways I play these Battleplans. It isn't something I want to make public atm though. I still need to play a GT and a Masters before I spoil my list:D

    I'll do that. Do you ever have plans to record your matches and release them in the future?

    Meh, your list is fine (or well, it's not like we have terribly much options) You have teleport and summoning, and your list is relativly fast so it's good for these kind of objective based games. It could use some sturdier stuff, but you don't have many options there.

    You got 2 wizards so you can make plenty of use of the realm spells. Don't forget em, some of em are brilliant. This is about the only time our slann is actually liable to be casting regularly.

    First match: we got teleporting and summoning as well as strike from the skies. Use that to your advantage to control objectives

    2nd match: Get your slann on an objective, cast something defensive on yourself, summon a skink screen and dump wounds on them with Soul-Force Sacrifice. Your slann should now be able to hold that objective against most opponents as long as you don't run out of skinks. Do try to keep big scary stuff away from him though, he isn't going to fight off a bloodthirster. Again, make royal use of summoning and teleporting to control the other objectives.


    3th match:
    - Transmutation is briljant for murdering hordes of 1 wound units, better than rule of burning iron (Transmutation will kill 15 models in a 1 wound horde, rule of iron will need a horde of 90! models before it'l deal 15 wounds, obviously this is on average. If you're Lucky rule of iron can do more damage).
    - Be carefull with where you place your casters so you don't kill their guards with irresistable force.
    - Again, teleport and summon to control objectives.
    - Pray you don't face tzeentch as they'l basicly succeed at all the spells constantly with their inherent modifiers on top of irresistable force :p

    Minor sidenote, get some chameleons they'd be briljant here.

    @Canas Thanks for the advice on Realm tactics. I think I'll use some of the Handlers as proxy for Chameleon until I can buy some. Seems like they are good to have!

    Doenst transmutation just kill 3 models at maximum? For each dice you roll higher than the wound charc. you can kill a model. How do you get to 15?

    Right, I misunderstood how he wrote the spell down and somehow came to the conclusion you'd roll 18 dice cuz of the 3D6, nevermind. The amount of acronyms rather threw me off.

    I just found this thread, and a 2k battle looks awesome. Can’t wait to see the battle report.
