Well the day is finally here, the Warhammer 40k State Masters Event!

This year its being hosted at the home of Nzarra, shame its not a bit warmer as the pool and spa looks pretty nice.
The army draw has been done and the following were winners (or losers if you got the nids, apparently).

Neil (Neil) - Orks
Tom (Buddha) - Chaos Space Marines
Andy (Damage) - Grey Knights
Norm (Stormy) - Nids
Alun (Nzarra) - Space Marines
Chris (Zero) - Eldar
Owen (Shattered Souls) - Dark Eldar
Nathan (Baney) - Imperial Guard
Kristen (Quin) - Blood Angels
Ben (Shippy) - Space Wolves

Kick off will be soon, everyone is reviewing their army list and the codex, round draw and some photos soon.

Neil is such a smug ###### tongue.gif

Interesting army draws. I still like tom and neil, but both of them got fairly mid-field armies. Tom's knowledge of that Chaos army might be enough, but I don't think it's that good in this field. Apples with Eldar should have a good run, but will struggle to score highly because of the low damage output. Alun with Space Marines should also be a good fit, it was a decent list, right? And baney got a pretty nice guard list he should be able to play.

Poor norm got the tyranids sad.gif I would have liked to see him do well, but I'm not sure he'll be able to get it done with nids. I wonder if quin with the BAs will be a big advantage, ditto Wolves for Shippy and GKs for Andy.

Should be interesting. Thanks for the coverage roy. Say hi to everyone for me.

Neil is struggling, decided to reserve the Orks and they came on piecemeal, some failed WAAAGGHH!! rolls saw lack of combat, shooty shooty Baney is making him think.

Alun and Quin are battling it out, power armour on both sides and they are swinging both ways.

Shippy and Damage are getting stuck in, 4 empty beer bottles on their table so far, pretty sure some have already been cleared away.

Tom and Owen are duing it out, Tom just winked at me so i think its almost over there.

Apples and Norm have taken a while to get started, Nids are swarming across the table and i saw some jet bikes kill stuff in combat, i know right.

Scott: will do.

Round 3 Results:

Tom beat Alun
Baney beat Andy
Shippy beat Neil
Apples beat Owen
Quin beat Norm

Round 4 Draw:

Tom vs. Baney
Shippy vs. Apples
Alun vs. Neil
Andy vs. Quin
Owen vs. Norm

Top table is playing for 1st place, depending on the losers score then Shippy, Apples or Alun will make up the rest of the podium based on their results this round. With 10 players its been a bit tricky each round as your always having someone on more wins playing someone on less, meaning a bit of unbalance and so far there has been no toppling of giants. Definate advantages to Tom and Alun both playing armies they are very familiar with, Apples also rocking out the Eldar with Shippy the point and click of Space Wolves. Feel sorry for Norm having the Nids and Andy figuring out Grey Knights (when he normally plays Orks). Neil brought 6 dice along with him, but gets to play orks....

My moneys on Tom taking out Baney for the win, I think Toms experience with CSM will pull him through, and I suspect the mission favours the CSM in that match up.

Alun and Neil is an interesting match up, I think the orks may have the advantage, but Alun has an army is fairly experienced whilst I'm not sure how well Neil plays Orks. So my Pick would be Alun.

Shippy I suspect will go down to the Eldar, mission favours the Eldar, space wolf list has too many wasted points. Could be wrong though, and Shippy has probably drunk enough to start playing well tongue.gif.

Andy should smash that blood angel list with the grey knights, hopefully he doesn't hold everything in reserve again!.

Norm and Owen, I'm going 50/50 chance for who wins, I think both lists have advantages in this mission, and I don't think either player is familiar with those armies.

I think experience with the codex is the telling factor! 50 50 Tom or Baney! Go for gold fellas!

with a pool of 10 & the idea that its the best of the best (of the best) i dont think a swiss system mismatch will be much of a problem
