The Warzone Atlanta Warhammer 40k tournament are in! 8 games were played and while the first 3 games were optional during the Warmaster’s Challenge.

That didn’t stop the first place player from winning 8 Games in a row. Coming out well ahead of 2nd and 3rd each with 6 wins of their own. The 1’s and 0’s is just used as binary for a win or loss for the round in the placings.

Warzone Atlanta Warhammer 40k 1st place Jack Harpster – Grey Knights

A Knight in Grey by Mr–Jack

Grey Knights weren’t touched in the Balance Update so expect 5 Dreadknight list to keep punching well. Both versions can take advantage of the Augury of Agression to overwatch on a 4+ to hit. Points were saved with 2 of the Dreadknights not taking a Sword or Hammer and saving on troops by having an Outrider Detachment instead of a second patrol.

Dreadhammers continue to be seen with Prescient Brotherhoods to take advantage of the Reroll 1’s to hit and wound stratagem. The Prescient Brotherhood outrider was full of Interceptors. Great for the large squads to maximize the reroll to hit and wound stratagem. 

Congratulations on an undefeated Warzone Atlanta Warhammer 40k 1st Place Showing!

Warzone Atlanta 2nd Place Steven Mitchell – Adeptus Mechanicus

The legality of this list was iffy at the Warzone Atlanta Warhammer 40k tournament… While the points were fixed as of October for the event, errata and FAQs were in effect up to Friday. The match play balance Data Slate is a collection of points and errata. Mainly the limitation of 2 planes per army. However, it was allowed at the event so no worries.

Regardless this is the last time when the skies of 40K are so darkened by planes.

One has to appreciate the outside of the norm list ideas. Mainly taking 3 Skorpius Disintegrators with Ferrumite Cannons. The strength 8 ap -3 flat damage 3 guns are perfect for killing Ork Buggies as they are strong enough to ignore the Ramshackle rule. The First hand field testing warlord trait makes the Magnarail Lance great for finishing off those units or popping Deffkoptas. One Fairly useful unit was the Ruststalkers carrying the Temporcordia to inflict Fight Last and it has Archived Engagements in order to throw out Fight First. 

Congrats with the last hurrah of more than 2 flyers and coming second.

Warzone Atlanta 3rd place Jaime Paris – Space Wolves Successors

Space Wolves by Denewer

The successors of space wolves are even more viscous with whirlwind of rage for exploding 6’s to hit in melee. Furthermore this is Combined with Master Artisans for a reroll to hit. Keen senses used on the Long Fangs means they will drop down and hit their targets with no penalties to hit. Remember that Master Artisan reroll to hit? They will drop down and murder their target. Great for when you want to force those saves on Dreadknights. The Grav Cannon can help clear 2 wound infantry. If they don’t go down the first time around, the Armorium Cherub can help with a model shooting again.

It’s great to see scouts out and about again. Sure they can pop up from any table edge but both squads in this list have a Land Speeder Storm to ride in. Which means they can hide move 18” away and either stay inside to shoot or disembark to do what needs doing. Such as moving to do an easy action like Retrieve Data and still shooting. Or advancing and shooting both the Melta and the combi melta while in melta range taking advantage of the Master Artisan reroll. The left over Land Speeder Storm can still be used to prevent overwatch to keep the Wolf Guard vets safer. The Combi Melta storm shields models in the units will also help for cracking those tough units.

A great list and congratulations on coming third.
