Here's some pics from the games we had this past weekend. We ended up with 18 people after two dropped the day of. Some pick-up games were played Friday, three tournament rounds were had on Saturday, and then six of us hung around for a few more games on Sunday.

Gunslinger007 has the match slips for the full breakdown but off of the top of my head:

Andrew W took the Epic Trophey back to NJ with him.
Frank is now the proud owner of the Dice of Dave.
Andrew P won the "Best Painted" award, graciously thanking the academy.
Anthony got the Best Crit, flipping Eric's Gunfortress on to some Orks.
And Coach took home the Iron Vagina award again after opening his mouth during the award ceremony.

Anyway, enjoy the pics!

I had a great time at the tournament, and it was awesome to have folks come from all along the seaboard, pretty much Philly to Boston :)

https://traitor-legion.appspot.com/choo ... 8~66x1~803

I'd say that it's not the most competitive. The portals are very fragile, and the number of activations it fails drives me up a wall.

That's fine, my group isn't very competitive, as long as you think the list is fun to play :)

It has its moments (my Wraithseer making save after save in CC with Dino's Terminators and Raptors comes to mind), but I would not rank it high in "fun" column. Part of the issue is me constraining myself to playing with what I have painted (4 Falcons and an Avatar being the only exceptions), but the number of failed activations I've had with this army feels really high. Because of what I have painted I don't have much chaff, so every failed activation hurts. You need your Serpents to double/march, and you need your Spirit hosts to engage, yet 1s seem to pop up way more often than they should.

As I paint more I might come back to it, but I'd like to try another Craftworld soon, sans portals.

As usual NEAT was a blast. I had 3 good games, managing to win 2 of them. It was nice seeing some new faces.
