Gators First Tourney

Tournament - 2014 Scenario: Deathmatch

This was a single-list tournament, which is apparently unusual.
This was my first tournament, organized by Les at Connection Games at Renfrew, and it was totally a blast!

Here's what I ran:


  • Blackhide Wrastler
  • Ironback Spitter
  • Bull Snapper
Wrong Eye + Snackjaw
Gatorman Posse (Max)
Gatorman Posse (Max)
Bog Trog Ambushers (Min)
Swamp Gobbers Bellows Crew
Gatorman Witch Doctor

Lost my first match (Vs Serg, running Circle Oroboros, using the warlock Mohsar ), won my second match (Vs Neil, running Retribution of Scyrah, using the warcaster Ossyan), and then lost my third match (Vs Bert, running Skorne, using the warlock pMorghoul)

First match vs Serg was uneventful, because it was mostly my gators punching rocks all goddamn day, and almost getting myself assassinated, and then his guys teleporting into my backline, and um, yeah... Circle is dumb. Oh, and I forgot to take pics, which is a shame, honestly. He picked up very quickly that I was an inexperienced player, and helped me with a lot of things. Thanks, Serg!

Vs Scyrah - Lol @ Ranged Attacks

So, Retribution of Scyrah is mostly shooty dudes... Blindwater Congregation doesn't give a fuck about shooty shit. As such, my opponent told me right from the get-go that this match was heavily skewed in my favour...

Him keeping his left flank near the board edge for my Trogs to ambush didn't help him much either, heh. Everyone seems to forget about the Bog Trogs! ... Myself included, sometimes.

Also, see that horseman on the left hand side? He would have killed Rask (On Feat turn, no less!) but he missed with his third shot.... SO CLUTCH.

Vs Scyrah - He was camping 5focus+Admonition.. Rask DGAF

NOTE TO SELF: Don't ever try to gamble with Ironback Spitters' acid spit. It can/will deviate back towards your guys and corrode your gators.

Edit: It seems that my opponent wrote up a thorough Battle Report (With much better pictures, too!) of the Ossyan vs Rask bout, here's a link to it on the official Privateer Press forums!

Vs Skorne - I think this was end of my second turn.
See that foot token? That means I used Rask's feat, which makes it so that my guy cannot be charged or attacked from models more than 5" away.... See how all of his guys are more than 5" away? Yeah, exactly.

This match was great, right up until a few turns later, when...
Vs Skorne - See Morghoul, beside the Gladiator there? 
Vs Skorne  - See Morghoul, slaughtering my Warlock? Yeeaaah....

Fuckin' assassins, man...
