The Road to DaBoyz GT
« on: April 14, 2014, 08:13:45 PM »
I've decided that I'm going to use the DaBoyz GT 2014 to benchmark the 'completion' of my High Elf army. DaBoyz GT is a 2400 fantasy tournament on November 15 and 16, precluded by a 2400 point team tournament on November 14th (7 months from today.) There is very little composition restrictions, the only ones that I'd even need to care about are that each army needs a fortitude of at least 4 (the general grants 2 and you gain an additional 1 per banner in your army) and your most expensive unit can't cost more than double your second most expensive unit, not counting lords, heroes, or characters (I particularly love that rule.) Named characters are allowed, but frowned upon, but I won't be using them anyway.

For today I will be posting 2 of my experimental lists as well as a list of what I have painted and what I have that I want painted by the GT. Throughout the summer I will post pictures of my army, thoughts and tactics as well as questions about particular armies, and I will be working on a display board for the army.

Spoiler: Army list 1 (click to show/hide)

Spoiler: Army list 2 (click to show/hide)

Spoiler: Painted and to paint (click to show/hide)

Any questions or comments are appreciated. By the end of the week I should be posting pictures and thoughts on tactics that I've gleaned from playing this army since last November and playing against high elves.

Haven't had a chance to see the High Elf book in action, so can't say much for the lists :P

Good luck in getting it ready for the GT ;)

US. Fly over, it's become my yearly vacation because I can only handle that amount of warhammer, alcohol, and general 'getting slaaneshed' per year :P Last year out of 70 or so people there wasn't a single skaven army. To put that into perspective there were 5 beastmen armies, 3 wood elf armies, and 3 brettonian armies. Hell, there were 2 chaos dwarf armies.

I may just take pictures of my army on the board tomorrow, as I'm playtesting one of my lists against daemons or dark elves, and since New York turned into the UK for the last week I haven't been able to get any decent sunlit pictures of my army...

Nice one Deraj, great target to aim for, am starting a tabletop fantasy army so trying to motivate myself to paint big units too. Will watch with interest. :)
