Natcon Wrapup: End of Day 3

Bowling into the last day I was tied for 1st with Mal. Forgot to take pictures as was really bloody tired.

Round 7
Mal Patel (Lizardmen) 7-13- This basically ended up in us taking 1 objective each and Mal Shooting the crap out of one of my bloodletter units. and cleaning out my chaff. Things did not start well when he final transmutated my general in the first turn. gg 6 dice. Ah well. Managed to hold on to a 5 point objective with a beast of Nurgle, taking my points of objectives to 25/30 for the weekend.

Round 8
Aaron Hodson (Ogres) 13-7 - I love it when Mournfangs and Iron blasters bounce. Right off a bloodletter horde. BOING! 2nd best moment was when my Beast of Nurgle ate his Stonehorn mano e mano. We only got to turn 4 and I purple sun misfire and dimensional cascaded my death mage...again. And on the flank as well. Sigh. I still wasn't able to get to 1st or second place after this game but was able to with my painting points take out 3rd place.

20 points for the last day wasn't too bad. I was quite surprised to hear I had gotten 3rd place with my painting tipping it in my favour as I'd only scored average on the last day. When you spend ages and ages painting your daemons it makes it all the more worth it. Very chuffed as it was my 2nd nz tournament and 2nd tournament in 10 years.

1st: Sam Whitt (Dark Elves)
2nd: Mal Patel (Lizardmen)
3rd: Samuel Campbell (Daemons of Chaos)

Best Sport: Brendon Johnston (Beastmen)
I didn't get to even speak to Brendon the whole tournament and wasn't matched up against him, but I hear he was a really good player to go up against.

Best Army: Charlie Lloyd (Tomb Kings)
Loved Charlie's army it was the only army that you could pick out from the other side of the room and had excellent colour selection.

1st: Simon Switzer (Dwarf’s)
2nd: Mark Skilton (Vampire Counts)
Last: Fern Campbell (Orcs and Goblins)

Simon has the goods to take a lot of damage from all his oppenents. I had to use all of my daemony goodness to destroy his army. It was brutal.

The missus had tonnes of fun and I might get her to do some summaries of her battles. She's the top ranked female in the country though. She has mentioned she got more awards than I did on multiple occassions (bringing a knife to a gunfight and doing the most damage to her own army). As Jeff said "He didn't have the balls to take a night goblin only army to a tourney", she replied "neither did I".
