This is the Top Three AoS Lists for the SoCal Open that took place in USA on 22nd and 23rd October. It involved 45 players vying to be crowned champion in a 5 game tournament.

Declan: Partying like it’s early 2022! Dragons and Longstrikes are back, but Ramon’s brought a Slaan as well. An interesting choice which shows the strength in depth within Order. Particularly with Stormcast Eternals.

The Celestant Prime is kept in reserve until needed so Ramon’s early turns are about the Dragons and Endless Spells and then when you’re reeling… bang goes the Prime. Its Prime Time!

Brett: Something to look out for, Thunderbolt Volley with the Longstrikes (edited). Real opportunity to remove a screen just about anywhere and then introduce the Prime.

Declan: A list from before the Battlescroll, it’s still great although now more expensive. A great swansong for this version by Matt, but don’t expect Beasts to stop getting 5-0s. I still think they are very good.

TOTAL POINTS: (1960/2000)

Declan: it’s great to see a proper submarine effort and Roberto has done well here. It’s easy to get disheartened but he didn’t. Sylvaneth are difficult to get to 5-0 so a 4-1 is a great result.

Again showing the versatility of Order with Allies from Stormcast and it Prime Time again. Perhaps I shouldn’t have gone full Destruction!!

Brett: Combining the Prime and Gossamid is a brave change, that’s equivalent to 6 more Kurnoth or Durthu. Always good to see something new and Roberto almost pulled it off. If you are planning on using the Prime it’s always worth remembering that you have 300+ points off the table for 2 or 3 rounds. It’s hard to make his cost up, the Prime works well with Stormcast because they are often short of units after round 3.

CORE BATTALIONS
*Warlord

TOTAL POINTS: 1990/2000

Declan: Talking of Destruction, Aaron came in 6th with a 4-1. His Big Waaagh list takes the Kruleboyz and the points increases and decreases nett out in the new Battlescroll.

Aaron’s Big Waaagh works in most phases so there’s no hiding with the Boltboyz giving much needed range support and the Wurgogg staring down the world. Another great result.

Brett: The weakness of both Boltboyz and the Wurgogg is combat, they need to be screened. Screens don’t come much heavier than 15 Ardboys, that’s tough to deal with.
