Conviction is a small Tourney in Tasmania this year 16 players in the Fantasy section.

This year it was Swedish Comp between 9 and 16, 2400 point armies practice for Can Con (Australia's biggest Tourney).

I took a Double Dragon MSU List rated at 16 under Swedish.

Army wide
2nd Monster (-4)
Dispel Scroll (-7)

Lord 600
Prince, Star Dragon, Dragon Armor, Sword of Might, Enchanted Shield, Golden crown, Other Tricksters Shard 2+ AS, 2+ vs. First wound, 6+ WS. 2+ WS vs. Flaming (-40) Other tricksters good vs. Daemons and characters used by Star dragons hits as well.

Heroes 589
Dragon Mage, Level 2, Dragon Armour, Dispel Scroll, Gem of Sunfire, Charmed Shield 445 (-11)

Noble BSB, Barded Steed, Halberd, Shield, Dragon Armour, Dragonhelm, Luckstone, Potion of Foolhardiness 144 (-15)

Core 606 (-27)
6 Silver Helms, Shields, Champ, Musician 158 (-6)
6 Silver Helms, Shields, Champ, Musician 158 (-6)
12 Bowmen, Banner 130 (-5)
5 Ellyrian Reavers 80 (-4)
5 Ellyrian Reavers 80 (-6)

Special 239 (-10)
6 Dragon Princes, Full Command, Spell shield, Banner of Swiftness 239 (-10)

Rare 364 (-26)
RBT 70 (-7)
RBT 70 (-7)
8 Sisters of Avelorn 112 (-6)
8 Sisters of Avelorn 112 (-6)

2398 Points (-140 Comp points) = 16.0 (Blame this list on Swedish comp :D ).

All characters decked out to prevent Searing Dooms, some resistance to Cannonballs.

The Tournament consisted of 2 High Elves, 2 Bretonnians, 2 Skaven, 2 Vampires, 1 Dark Elf, 1 Dwarf, 1 Wood Elf, 1 Empire, 1 Lizardman, 1 Warriors, 1 Greenskin, 1 Beastman

Day 1

Game 1 vs. Cameron's Vampire Army (Cameron went on to win the event overall)

11-9 win (after comp score adjustment)


Game 2 vs. Elle's Orcs & Goblins

Elle was a new player so I knew we wouldn't get many turns played (we completed 4).

Elle's deployment
Spider Riders, Chariot, Pump Wagon, 2 Trolls, Boar Boyz, 1 Troll, Savage Orcs, Orc Biguns, Doom Diver, Chariot, Pump Wagon, Arachnaroc, Spider Riders

HE's: Reavers, Silver Helms, Dragon, Dragon (Dragons behind the Dragon Princes), Dragon Princes, Sisters, RBT, Archers, Sisters, Silver Helms, Sisters, RBT, Reavers

Turn 1
The Greenskins advanced on the Elvish lines Elle had positioned the 2 Trolls outside her Generals leadership bubble (I ignored them for the rest of the game as they kept failing Stupidity Tests) the Doomdiver killed a unit of Silverhelms.

High Elf turn 1 I managed to snipe out a Troll and panicked the Spider Riders on the Orcs left flank. The rest of the shooting reduced the Boar Boyz down to 6 models.

Turn 2
The Spider riders rallied and came forward again. Everything Else came forward (apart from the Stupid trolls 1" move). The Doomdiver killed an RBT :( . Foot of Gork got scrolled.

The HE shot off the remaining Spider Riders that had just rallied, Reavers charged and destroyed the Spider Riders on the Orc right flank, the chariot left of the Orc centre got Fireballed and shot off. Silverhelms killed the Pump Wagon and overran onto the chariot.

Turn 3
2 Dragons and the Dragon princes hit the Savage orcs who eventually die in the second round of combat.

Turn 4
Reavers charge and kill the Doom diver. The Arachnaroc gets finished off by shooting. The Arrow Boyz get destroyed by the 2 Dragons and remaining Silver Helms.

The Greenskins were left with 2 Trolls.

20-0 win


Game 3 vs. Dave's Bretonnians

A very cagey game where neither of us wanted to commit our troops for fear of flank charges. My Dragons were scared of his Heroic Killing Blow Lord so I didnt want to risk losing them.

The Bretonnians castled in a corner and his Lances faced outwards preventing any flank charges.

HE's killed Trebuchet, Peasant Bowmen, Mounted Yoemen, Pegasus knights for the loss of a RBT, 5 Reavers and a Silverhelm Unit. Both armies 16 on comp score

11-9 win


Day 2

Game 4 vs. Chris's Empire

10-10 draw


Game 5 vs. Zach Lennon's Dark Elves (Zach was the Tasmanian Master in 2012)

This was almost a mirror match up between the High Elves and our DE cousins.

Dark Elf deployment right to left.
Master on Manticore BSB, Kharibdhys, Lord on Dragon, Cold One Knights, 10 Dark Riders RxB's, 10 RXB, 10 RxB, RBT, RBT, 10 Dark Riders with Lvl 2

HE's
Reavers, Silverhelms, Sisters, RBT, Bowmen, Sisters, Silver Helms with BSB, Dragon Princes , RBT, Reavers (far right), Dragons were deployed in behind the Dragon Princes.

I deployed far enough back to ensure the DE's had to move and shoot at my troops.

Turn 1
My primary goal was to neutralise the DE shooting so turn 1 managed to destroy a unit of Dark Riders and put a couple of wounds on the crossbows.

The DE return fire killed a unit of Reavers on the DE left flank which was threatening his RBT's and he got rid of the Charmed Shield on my Dragon Mage with his RBT's.

Turn 2
My Dragon Mage got the big Fireball off with irresistible force decimating the other Dark Rider Unit which was killed off by shooting assassinating his Lvl 2. However my Dragon mage went to level 0 from the miscast ending both our Magic Phases for the rest of the game. :roll: The rest of the HE bows shot some at the RxB and a few trying to wound the Manticore. The DPs pushed up a bit in the center.

The DE's maneuvered advancing on their right flank and shot up the DP's.

In summary the Dark Elves pushed the right flank forward cleaning up the HE left and center while the HE's advanced cleaning up the DE center.

One the highlights of the game was the Sisters standing and shooting vs. the Kahrabdhys killing it outright on the charge.

Turn 6
The two Generals on Dragons eyed each other off and the HE General decided to charge (slightly wounded DE General) going for the big points. After 2 rounds of combat the HE Stardragon stood bloody and battered near its dead Master but had slain the DE General and his Black Dragon mount.

The little Dragon that could.

At the end of the Battle the DE's had their BSB on Manticore, and some Cold One Knights left. The Victorious HE's had a RBT, Reaver unit, Dragon Mage, DP's with BSB and a badly wounded Star Dragon.

A bloody engagement and a few lucky dice by the High Elves, but after the comp score adjustment a big win to the good guys :D

17-3 win (after comp score adjustment)


So I ended up getting Second Overall and Best Sportsman which was a nice bonus.

Plenty of tournaments listed on the forums. Really depends on how far you'd like to travel. Most Victorian tournaments these days are in Melbourne.

Are you seriously asking someone called Swordmaster of Hoeth why he has more swordmasters than white lions? Really?

Swordmaster of Hoeth

Hi Swordmaster I have a classic photo in game 5 with my Prince on a Stardragon fighting the Dark Elf General on his Dragon, a fight I managed to win with only 2 wounds left on my Dragon at the end.
