US Open New Orleans Warhammer 40k

Last weekend saw three Days of games and fun in downtown NOLA for The US Open New Orleans Warhammer 40k Tournament. Games Workshop held their second Open of the  year for 167 players to come out, get games and of course, find out who had the best list. 

With a repeat performance Richard Siegler managed to take the top spot again at the US Open New Orleans Warhammer 40k tournament!  While the US Open Orlando had a greater attendance, only 1 player can go undefeated after 8 games. There were some changes to his list. Most notably was the switch from Forgeworld Metallica to Mars. Another common feature at the top was Brad Chester and Mark Perry with Drukhari and Orks respectively. 

US Open New Orleans – 1st place Richard Siegler

Skitarii squad attack by brushray

Richard to a Veteran Cohort to take advantage of the Skitarii Supplement. The 19 Rangers will save 1 power level to the unit. This matters in regards to the Bionic Endurance to give the squad a 5++ ignore wounds for just 2 CP rather than 3.  Splitting the army into two Patrol detachments allows for 4 planes to be taken. The Stratoraptors with Mars are very reliable and efficient shooting combined with extra durability of the Chaff Launchers. Doctrinas and Canticles will modify defense and offence as needed. 

This army is surprisingly fast and can help corner an opponent with units.  The Ruststalkers are not slowed by terrain and as a veteran Cohort they will have access to Advance and charge.  Notice one of the Warlord traits is Eyes of the Omnisiah to re-roll advances. The Infiltrators can of course infiltrate into No Man’s Land to provide a plethora of units to keep your opponent pinned into their deployment zone. 

The Command Uplink on the Fusilave will come in handy to allow units without a Data Tether to gain the benefits of various Warlord traits. As well as the ability to prevent units from benefiting from Auras.

US Open New Orleans Warhammer 40,000 – 2nd Place Brad Chester

Aeldari, Drukhari and Exodites ambassadors by ArhPriest

Drukharii continue to be a menace to the Meta with fast flying units that can get everywhere. Brad took advantage of Raiding Forces to get all of the Command Points back which lets a player afford more relics and Warlord traits.  What may confuse folks is how Brad took the wracks as troops. 

There is a pure Cult of Strife patrol for access to the supplement bonuses. Clearly this is a murderous list between the Incubi, Wyches and Succubuses but it’s durable with those wracks and the Court of the Archon.  

Congratulations for pulling out second place with just a 2 point loss in the final game versus the Champion at the US Open New Orleans Warhammer 40k Tournament!

US Open New Orleans 3rd Place- Mark Perry Freebooterz

new orleans 3rd place orks
Warhammer 40k: Ork Stormboyz by Peter1punk

Orks again prove they are a force to be reckoned with especially with the Speed Waaagh. With so many fast attack units required, the Outrider detachment is a natural choice for detachments.  Unlike Mani Cheema and his Speed Waaagh, Mark took advantage of the CP refund of the Patrol detachment as well the Freebooterz +1 to hit. 

The Wazbom Blastajet comes equipped with very reliable damage of 3+D3 damage. This is not the only hard shooting unit with the Shokk Jump Dragstas and brutal melee punch of the Scrapjets. The Squigbuggy glow up continues to encourage players to put them in their list. However, Mark didn’t over do it as he left room for Kommandos and Burna Boyz. The Burna Boyz are interesting as they are auto hitting and can help clear chaff to trigger Freebooterz Clan Kulture
