So, I just came back from Boston Brawlcon. It was my first Grand Tourney, and I suppose, in the end, I should be happy with my showing. A few things deeply frustrated me though. I’ll give my general thoughts here, and then post detailed battle reports in a bit.
I did quite well with my Grey Knights, my final score was 4 wins and 1 loss, though I was randomly selected for the “bye” 5th round (annoyingly, 3 guys left, not between day 1 and 2, but between game 4 and 5, in the middle of the second day, wtf?) so that last game doesn’t count, in a way. I would have much preferred to have fought the last game, gotten in the hardcore practice (and just have the game) that I need, then get the free 20 pts. I also would have had more data on how my list performed, and had more battle reports for you guys.
Once again, the missions can be found this posting about Brawlcon. My scores were 17 (mission 1, it was very hard not to tie the secondary objective), 0, 20, 20, 20 (which was the bye). I came in 5th overall, out of 26, which I guess doesn’t include the 3 people who rage-quit.
Here’s the results:
Ben Molie 102 Best overall
