It could also have something to do with them deciding to drop a bunch of events without any warning, then making the submission process ambiguous at best.

I only have a single lvl 2 wizards and only 1 unit of glade guard in the list. Sadly not a single waystalker in the list. Unoptimised enough?

The list I submitted was chosen on the basis of what I thought were my nicest painted units from what I owned under the old book. No point in trying to metagame it until I've played a few games to see how everything I used before now plays and then I can start to work out a direction of travel.

Suspect you might get in trouble if anyone catches you doing that at work... I'd say keep the polishing of your javelin to the privacy of your own home.

So it is official, the Chaos Gods hate me! I had a chance for glory and the Chaos Pantheon stole it away in the last game.

GAME 1
vs Jake (Dwarfs)

3 combat blocks - Warriors with Great Weapons, Hammerers and another one
2 Gyrocopters
2 Cannons
1 Organ Gun

I took out the war machines and left the big blocks alone.
Victory to Daemons by 180 VPS

GAME 2
Vs Dave F (Wood Elves)

Dragon Lord
BSB on Eagle
Glade Guard block
10 Waywatchers
9 Wardancers?
2 Ambushing Glade Guard
Treeman

Great game, really enjoyed the game. Really quite scary the level of shooting that they get now. Waywatchers are as horrible as I thought they would be. The Treeman died to the Skullcannon turn 1 (always satisfying to take the Treeman out), the cannon also contributed to killing the Dragon Lord.
One unit of Waywatchers left at the end of the game. Best game of the day Dave - thanks!

Victory to Daemons by 1500pts ish.

GAME 3
Vs Rob (High Elves)

Block of White Lions with BSB and Alarielle
4 Bolt Throwers
15 Archers
2 x 5 Reavers
Eagle

The Reavers came and sat under an arch which was impassable terrain and I made the mistake of charging them with my Infernal Gateway Horrors. While in combat I Infernal Gatewayed a unit of Archers and killed 3! Then lost 4 Horrors in return making me lose the combat and going pop.

Nurgle also contributed by killing Horrors over a couple of turns along with a Herald of Tzeentch. Khorne was trying to help out by stomping on High Elf units to no avail. Then Slaanesh rears his/her ugly head and decides that the Skullcannon would be better off somewhere else and takes it from the battlefield. While all this happening, my magic phases were pants! Either i couldn't cast the spells - 3 dice to get 8 and failing, or when they were cast they did nothing - Melkoth's Mystifying Miasma on the White Lion block when they had Pha's Protection and Speed of Light up - Oh no they are now only WS8 - RUBBISH!!!!

Victory to High Elves by buckets full of points

All credit to Rob though, he played well and knew what he was doing. So annoying though when the dice hate you!

Well done Sam in organising it. I will definitely be up for more of the same.

Now then, where do I get those Black Sun Dice from.....
