Renegade Open 1st place Matt Root – Black Templars

Black Templar – Bladeguard Veterans by Conal-Art

There is a lot going on in this. Sure there’s the High Marshall who hits hard but he also buffs with rerolls and provides a great counter threat to armies getting close to the Dreadnoughts. Black Templar Characters can force melee attacks to be directed at them so that they can save key units that then slap back themselves.  This can be done particularly well by the Bike Chaplain with the relic T Bones due to the damage of attacks being reduced to 1. 

Two Chaplains help with the Black Templar unique secondary for taking objectives with them. The prayer loadout here is aimed at buffing squads. Of course with mini relics the squads themselves can be rather tough. Take for instance the Blade guard here that ignores AP-1 and AP -2.  Even the few that do go down thanks to Apothecary they can be brought right back. Especially the model that happens to be carrying the mini relic. 

This was a great list run by one of the great players. Well done and Congratulations on first place at the Renegade Open 2021 Warhammer 40k Tournament!

Renegade Open 2nd Place Charlie Anders- Grey Knights

The Grey Knights are here to purge the heretics
The Grey Knights are here to purge the heretics by snip105

Grey Knights weren’t touched this round of nerfs from the Balance Update. Fortunately, Charlie managed to avoid Hive Guard Castles. In his run to the top, he was tripped up by the Champion Matt Rott’s Black Templars. 

The list has plenty of small units to purify objectives and run around getting points. If they find they’re a bit too slow for that, that’s what Gate of Infinity is for.  Like other successful Grey Knight list 5 Dread Knights continue to be a bane across the battlefields of the 40k.  

Great job sticking out and pulling out second place in the Renegade Open 2021 Warhammer 40k tournament!

Renegade Open 3rd place Oliver Smith – White Scars

Battle
Battle by AboSargsyan

You don’t need troops as objective secured units if your opponent doesn’t have any models. However, just in case Right of War can be used to give out a little Objective Secured. Using it on a White Scars bike captain keeps the unit very fast to bring an objective secured aura where it’s needed. As it stands this army is very efficient and is further buffed with Chapter Master Rerolls. Chainfist on the Dreadnoughts are a great option for when fighting Dreadknights as they are Flat Damage 6 versus vehicles, potentially 7 in the White Scars super doctrine.  

Furthermore, there are plenty of Multi-meltas for other hard targets and Grav-cannons galore to deal with Marines like Interceptors.  Considering the heavy weapons can be made into Assault weapons. So a Devastator Squad can drop down and shoot without penalty while one model will shoot twice hitting on a 2+. If they’re near enough to the Chapter Master that is a lot of ranged murder. 

Congratulations and well done for making the Podium.
