Top Three AoS Lists from Hampshire GT

Hampshire GT saw 113 players vying to be crowned champion in a 5 game tournament. This event is one of the Jewels in the UK Tournament scene and coming away as Champion here says a huge amount about your ability as a Wargamer.

1st Darren Watson – Seraphon

Darren won all five games. Along the way he beat Sylvaneth/Gnarlroot in Round 1, then Slaves to Darkness/Hosts of the Everchosen in Round 2, Beasts of Chaos in Round 3, Stormcast Eternals/Astral Templars in Round 4 and Fyreslayers/Lofnir in Round 5.

Peter: Afraid you have me today instead of Declan. He’s got a busy week ahead of him work-wise. I’m not as knowledgeable as Declan on AoS but I’ll give this a shot.

As Declan has mentioned on several occasions, theres so much depth to the Seraphon book. In this case it’s all about causing mortal wounds with Kroak, the Saurus with Fusil of Conflaguration and the Arcs of Sotek. While the Celestant-Prime is used as a counter for any dangerous threats, keeping it in reserve as a counter-punch. All of this while the Saurus and skinks get quietly on with work claiming objectives.

2nd Jack Armstrong – Maggotkin of Nurgle

Jack also won all five games. Winning against Cities of Sigmar/Hallowheart in round 1, then beating Seraphon/Thunder Lizard in round 2, Sons of Behemat/Breaker Tribe in round 3, Maggotkin of Nurgle/Befouling Host in round 4 and Sons of Behemat/Breaker Tribe in round 5.

Core Battalions
*Battle Regiment

Total: 1995 / 2000
Reinforced Units: 0 / 4
Allies: 0 / 400
Wounds: 109
Drops: 3

Peter: With 8 Pusgoyle Blightlords this army is quicker than your usual Nurgle army. Only the the Great Unclean one moves less than 8″ per turn, the Pusgoyles each have 11 attacks per model on 3+/3+ means that each model will wound 5 times on average. Couple that with the fact they can cause mortals on the charge… 16 wounds on each pair of Blightlords means they’re hard to shift as well.

3rd Steven Follows – Legion of the First Prince

Steven just like the others in the top three also managed five wins. Beating Idoneth Deepkin/Fuethan in round 1, Legion of the First Prince in round 2, Lumineth Realm-Lords/Helon in round 3, Bonesplitterz/Drakkfoot list in round 4 and Sylvaneth/Gnarlroot in round 5.

Peter: Pink horrors. Under pointed. I’m afraid I don’t know too much more about this list. But it’s a great result to go 5-0 with any list, especially at a weekend where there’s so many competitive players as there are at the Hampshire GT.

Wildcard: Conor Gardner – Bonesplitterz

Check out Conor’s list! Not one, not two but 10 Big Stabba units! With this list Conor managed to finish 15th losing only a single game to 3rd placed Steven Follows! Beating Slaves to Darkness/Despoilers in round 1, Ironjawz/Ironsunz in round 2, Stormcast Eternals/Celestial Vindicators (including Stormdrake) in round 3. Losing to Steven in round 4 before going on to beat in round 5. Thanks to Woehammer Discord member Danny for pointing me to this list.

Peter: What a fun list, how this managed four wins over the weekend (including one against Stormcast/Stormdrake) I have no idea. The Big Stabbas each have 3 attacks at 3+/3+ with -2 rend and 2 damage. They’re also able to cause mortal wounds when destroyed.

The heavy lifting is all done by Big Drogg fort kicka though. While the enemy is trying to take down a 35 wound monster the rest of the Orruks claim the objectives.

Well done Conor!
