    Tournament winning armies?

    Wondered if anyone would like to share any of their armies (for any race) that has ever won any tournament. Just, I have a hunch that tournament winning armies use something individualistic.

    I told them they didn’t understand life."

    IN the past at GT's (and ones where painting and composition don't count) and the winners in the past have tended to be mech Eldar/Marines/ Tau, but you do see alot of Nidzillas too.

    Of course with 5th edition expect to see more troop heavy armies to take objectives IMO.

    Re: Tournament winning armies?

    I see orks giving many armies a run for thier money. I'm hoping I can make my Daemons a tourny winning army, but for them, so much relies on getting your stuff on time. I will be impressed with any high placing daemons though.

    Re: Tournament winning armies?

    I agree that Orks will be much better in 5th. 'Running' is definitely a plus for them. Heres the Ork army list Im going to start using:

    1 Warboss
    1 Weirdboy
    150 Orks w/ 15 Rokkit Launchas
    12 Tankbustas
    TOTAL:1500 points

    Re: Tournament winning armies?

    I see Nids winning a lot...Gaunts scout onto objectives and sit with 2+ cover saves until end of games...Not to exclude running Carnifexes, Broodlord with Tendrils and Genestealers with Acid Maw combo ( IE: Re-roll To Hit and To Wound first round combats.), Rear AV Penetration, cover nearly everywhere, and blast weapons not dissappearing...

    They're just sick...
