The Iron Halo Con was a well attended major event this weekend. 102 players brought their A game to Iron Halo to close out the Lord Marshall Conference. Nearly 10% of the Iron Halo field was Grey Knights and after 6 rounds they would take top spot.

But as reported the new Greener normal was on display as Orks pulled out a second and third place. Now, on to the results and the winning lists of Iron Halo Con!

The Iron Halo Con 1st place Ben Cherwien- Grey Knights

iron halo con grey knights
‘A Knight in Grey’ by Mr–Jack

What’s better than a Dread Knight? All the Dreadknights obviously. But 5 is the most one can reasonably take with the detachment limit of one Grand master dread per detachment. Of course if your committing the resources to the dreads you may as well include the means to repair them. Ben Did that with two Techmarines, one in each detachment.

 Why this list wins can be several ways. First are the GreyKnight secondaries. Purifying objectives is an easy 15 points if your opponent doesn’t have psychic defense. Or teleport assault as these dreads want to get stuck in and get to chopping with the Nemesis Greatsword. The secondary to the last works well as an option when the large Interceptors can be split in half. Plus the Techmarines can repair the more expensive Dreadknight.

You can’t ignore this army as Vanguard Aggression allows for a core unit to move along with the Dread Knight with this warlord Trait. Furthermore, the Unyielding Anvil is Double Objective secured to make up for what would be a low model count army. (Double Objective Secured is where objective secured models count as 2 models instead of one. Otherwise, non objective secured models gain objective secured.) All in all a great list and deserving to win the Final Iron Halo.

The Iron Halo Con 2nd place – Colin McDade

iron halo con orks

Orks never lose. In this case Colin managed to go undefeated but struggled to get points in a few games. This caused him to play down rounds 5 and 6 but as pairings were randomized for the previous 4 rounds this wasn’t the case for those rounds.

Conversions were being limited to model and kits released so no Squigasuars just yet were used but this list focused on the Freebooterz for the +1 to hit just like the third place list in last weeks Aliance Open which we covered.  

One patrol is used to save command points over more specialized detachments due to the Warlord refund. Furthermore 2 detachments are required to take 3-4 planes. In this case 3 Dakka Jets and 1 Wazbom Blastajet.  The extra CP saved can be used to place the planes in strategic reserve to prevent them from just being shot off the table turn 1. At power level 34 for all 4 planes, 4 command points would be required to do that. Fortunately planes placed into strategic reserves Deepstrike anywhere onto the board 9” away from enemy models. Easily getting into range with the Wazbom’s mega blastas that brings consistent damage of D3+3.

The Iron Halo Con: Dan Sammons 3rd place – Orks

iron halo con orks never die
The Tau in Close Combat by wibblethefish

Even with Orks do lose they just come back to fight again. In a very similar list to what Colin McDade ran, Dan was knocked out of the running for first or second place when he came into contact with Tim Royers Imperium list. The problem that Dan ran into was a Castellan Knight with Cawl’s Wrath Relic and Ion Bulwark.  At toughness 8 and a 4++ invulnerable the Knight wasn’t going to be easy to take down. Furthermore, the Castellan has the firepower to clear buggies.  Tough to deal with during the Battlelines mission when there were just 4 objectives. 

Unlike Colin McDade, Dan went with the Burna Bommer as his 4th plane of choice. The Burna bomb can be dropped to hit a large area with potential mortal wounds. Great for clearing bunched up single wound models such as Skitarii blobs.  Another difference, was the choice of Warlord trait. -1 to be wounded should help keep the warlord around. Clearly a great list that can rake in the points as he was over 30 points ahead of the next 5-1 player.
