This was my second game in the Harbor City Siege Tournament that happened last weekend in Gothenburg, Sweden. My opponent was fellow forum member Karegak and his brittle little space fairies. Hopefully he can provide some insights to how it felt to meet the list.

NIGHTWINGS [300]
3 Nightwing Interceptors

Setup was again me placing both my blitz and both T&H objectives on one extreme flank, 30cm apart, just above the midline. My opponent placed his on the opposite flank far away from mine. The left most of my T&H objectives was transformed into a wraithgate.

I deployed most of my army on "my" flank except for the Killa kanz and 1 supa-stompa. My opponent garrisoned some rangers in front of my objectives and then set the rest of the army up on the right flank and center of the board.

My thoughts:

This was Karegaks first battle ever with Eldar. The list was a little bit unusual from other Biel-Tan lists I've faced with no air assaulting aspects, Void Spinners or Revenant titans.
Karegak did a big gamble with the Turn 1 assault on my Great Gargant. I would lie If i didn't say that i spurred him on. Both of us where giggling over the "epicness" of the assault which was great! Me winning the initiative on turn 2 kinda sealed his fate as i could wipe his BTS out of existence and claim the wholw right flank by doing so.
It was very close though and if he would have won the initiative and then charged me with the Avatar (which was his plan) I would have probably lost my Great Gargant.

But again i felt that keeping my forces close together and using them to support each other i was unstoppable from rolling over the table wrecking havoc. And again i only needed 1 unit to contest 1 of Karegaks objectives to deny him T&H. And a supa-stompa hiding in a forest does that very well.

I will give my thoughts on the list in the development thread. Hopefully Karegak will share his own thoughts also.

I think it was one of the players who made it himself!
