the alliance open warhammer 40k

The Alliance Open held a Super Major this weekend. In this Open GT 7 rounds of fury there were over 160 Players in the Netherlands. Even with Thousand Sons and Grey Knights joining the Competitive Meta, the usual suspects are at the top. Admech, Drukhari, and perhaps the new normal, Orks.  

The Alliance Open: 1st Place Justin Jansen – Mixed Admech 

Titan Expedition (Crusade Impressions 08)
Titan Expedition (Crusade Impressions 08) by Martechi

Justin got around the core nerf to Ironstriders by taking a Mars outrider. The Mars Dogma combined with Canticles bring back rerolls to the Chicken Walkers. Of course the Infiltrators can grab real estate early on in No Man’s Land if need be and our great target to throw out Mortal wounds using the Mars specific stratagem Wrath of Mars. The large 8 raider unit will also do well as a target of that stratagem as they are already doing mortal wounds on a 6 to wound with their regular shooting. Keeping two Skorpius Disintegrators around will help with the Indirect fire. 

The Lucius detachment is where the buffing abilities went. Mainly as those abilities wouldn’t work on the non core units, they may as well be in this detachment. Those troops are going to be good at what they do. Fallback and shoot courtesy of  Warlord Marshal that is also bringing reroll 1’s to hit and wound with the Relic Exemplar Eternity. Stacked onto those units are the other Warlord traits on the two of the Skitarii Sergeants. Battlesphere Uplink to move and shoot without penalties as well as the Multitasking Cortex to shoot and do actions. Of course you Lucius can make them tough using Luminescent Blessings along with the Logi Holy order to ignore AP-1 and AP-2. 

This is a great list that skipped out Skitarii Army of Renown for the reliable fire power of Mars shooting and the flexibility of Lucius troops.

The Alliance Open Second Place: Ruud Steenbakkers – Drukhari

Warhammer 40k - Drukhari - Incubi
Warhammer 40k – Drukhari – Incubi
by svinkavkresle

Ruud Steenbakker lost to Justin’s Admech round 4 of the tournament but he stuck with it and used the pain of that mid tournament defeat to power him all the way to a second place showing. 3 patrols is fairly common with the Raiding Forces rules to refund the detachment cost. So long as the infantry can ride in any other Kabal, Coven, or Cult’s transport it just makes sense to make the transport from the best detachment rules you can. 5 of them in this case to ferry the infantry around. 

Ruud used Dark Technomancers to make the Dark Lances of Raiders shooting better at wounding the toughest of units. Squeezing in the Incubi and Drazhar in this detachment works as the infantry units are required to take the dedicated transport. 

The double Courts of the Archon are tough to clear off of objectives especially as the rest of the army is rushing at you. Including the Archon armed with the Djin Blade relic. The Kabal of the Black Heart provides Stratagem Defence as it can make Stratagems more expensive with repeated use. 

A Drukhari would not be complete without a Cult of strife detachment. A Succubus can trade up so well. Furthermore, turning off overwatch and preventing units from falling back can force your opponent to play your game rather than execute their plans.

Well done!

The Alliance Open Third Place: Thomas Bruthscher – Orks

Aimin'? Wot's Dat?
Aimin’? Wot’s Dat? by MajesticChicken

Green is best, or in this case 3rd best but that’s okay they can always come around for another go at it because Orks never lose. Case and point Thomas lost his first game against an Epedimus Chaos soup list but kept at it at the event. However, while some can argue this could have led to an easier path to victory, regardless 6 other games were won. 

Freebooterz can be powerful when the entire army gains a +1 to hit just for killing an enemy unit. The indirect fire of the Squig Buggies especially with the Nitro Squig can help this Army wide ability to happen as they can target weaker units attempting to hide. That being said, the Squig Buggy already has decent shooting when the Grots shoot along with decent strength and even better AP during the Speed Waaagh. Great for killing with range just like the Dakka Jets as they help to gain early Engage on All Fronts. 

The Forgeworld Kannonwagons are amazing with Freebooterz letting them hit on a 3+. Joining the shooting is good old fashion melee exemplified by the Brutal but Kunnin Beastboss on a Squigasaur and several Megatrak Scrapjets. 

Freebooterz play the mission well as they can steal objectives from underneath their opponents’ feet using the Get da Loot Stratagem. Gaining Objective Secured for an infantry unit. A well rounded list and well played apparently as it did finish 3rd overall.
