Top Three AoS Lists from Rum and Rumble

The Rum and Rumble took place in Nottingham, UK on 7th and 8th May. It involved 16 players vying to be crowned champion in a 5 game tournament.

TSportsNetwork on Twitch were live all weekend showing games as they happened. You can watch these back with a subscription, which I highly recommend!

Before I jump into the Top Three, I wanted to remind everyone of our friendly Discord server where you can join in the conversation with the Woehammer crew and suggest articles or series for the website.

1st Place – Matthew Gouldesbrough

Matthew won all five games over the weekend. Along the way he beat Blades of Khorne/Baleful Lords in round 1, Sons of Behemat/Breaker Tribe in round 2, Sons of Behemat/Breaker Tribe in round 3, Maggotkin of Nurgle/Drowned Men in round 4 and Cities of Sigmar/Living City in Round 5.

Top Three AoS Lists from Super Major G&T

Super Major G&T saw 16 players vying to be crowned champion in a 5 game tournament. Judging by the lists this tournament seemed like the an extremely fun and relaxed event. The type that would be a dream first tournament for any player.

1st Math Mallow – Sylvaneth

Math won four games and drew his last with Sylvaneth! Along the way he beat Ogor Mawtribes/Boulderhead in Round 1, then Soulblight Gravelords/Vyrkos Dynasty in Round 2, Skaventide in Round 3, Idoneth Deepkin/Fuethan in Round 4 and drew against Gloomspite Gitz/Glogg’s Megamob in Round 5.

Declan: Normally I would say ‘wow’ at Slyvaneth winning a 2 day tournament, but check out the name… Math Mallow (shockingly not his real name!!) has been smashing opponents since AoS3 dropped including my Sons of Behemat at the same venue last year.

It is in essence a shooting / magic list with amazing mobility in the Tree Revenants helping with battle tactics. Whilst you may think that Alarielle is the key here, you’d be mistaken – it’s the Warsong Revenant, who is a beast! Casting Throne of Vines for bonuses to cast, and then throwing spells through the Spell Portal there is nowhere to hide from this army.

Whilst short on wounds, the one drop means Mallow gets the choice of first / second often and his shooting / magic can kill key units early on.

2nd Dominic Stonebridge – Gloomspite Gitz

Dominic won 3 and drew 3. Drawing against Ironjawz/Ironsunz in round 1, then beating Seraphon/Thunder Lizard in round 2, Kruleboyz/Big Yellers in round 3 and Seraphon/Fang of Sotek in round 4 before drawing against 1st placed Math and their Sylvaneth/Gnarlroot list in round 5.

Declan: Gitz, Gitz, Gitz!! Unbeaten as well. Dominic’s pulled it out of the fire here, with probably the strongest faction in the book (it’s a weak book!). He’s got a monster for the battle tactics (just don’t roll a double on the charge), and the Rockguts can put out damage, before coming back in useful groups of 3 when you kill them.

This is all about the units helping each other (Marshcrawler is now essential), or just being a beat stick (Mirebrute Troggoth). Dominic must have concentrated on the objectives here though, as there’s not quite enough power to kill enough of the enemy – great work!

3rd Matthew Gouldesbrough – Idoneth Deepkin

Declan: Matt has been one of the top players in the UK for some time now and he’s pivoted to the IdK here but left the Namarti Thralls at home and instead taking Allopexes in a Shiver! 4 Characters including a Prime doesn’t give him a lot of models on the table top (especially as one is off the table until turn 3), so it needs to survive and pick it’s targets.

But the tides help here, with strike first in turn 3 across the board, and the Akhelian King being able to give the units the same ability when required.

It’s fast, it’s small, but don’t be lulled into a false sense of security – this will smash so many armies before you’ve realised the threat!

Top Three AoS Lists from Quest of Champions – Heat 2

The Quest of Champions is a series of UK two day tournaments involving four heats and one final. The top 12 from each heat being invited to the final. Heat 2 saw 40 players fighting it out for those top 12 spots.

1st Dan Bradshaw – Beasts of Chaos

Dan won all five games with Beasts of Chaos! Let’s just take that in for a second… incredible play. Along the way he beat our very own Rhys and his Flesh-eater Courts/Gristlegore list, then Beasts of Chaos/Gavespawn in Round 2, Big Waaagh! in Round 3, Seraphon/Thunder Lizard in Round 4 and 2021 Leicester GT winner Mike Stewart and his Seraphon/Thunder Lizard list in Round 5.

Declan: Dan has been playing AoS for a long time on the UK scene and his twitter handle has shown his love for Beasts of Chaos for almost that long… so he was always going to be someone who was going to dive straight back in when the good White Dwarf update was issued. He has the Dragon Ogre Shaggoth as General who hurts himself to generate summoning points, and then uses the Monstrous Rampage ability to gain another 1 (or D3) summoning points each player turn. So the summoning points rack up and the ambush gives Dan more models than those above – likely being nearer 200 wounds.

The Tzaangor are an interesting choice and not one I have seen in other lists who tend to play around Bullgors. Obviously the additional rend here is the real ‘secret’ and the army is monstrous from turn 3 onwards with all units having additional 2 rend.

Dan beat Mike on top table game 5 – never an easy feat; which only adds to the success. Great to see Beasts of Chaos now be playable.

Declan: Fabian has gone with the Seraphon, and this is a vicious army. Seraphon have a great book which many options available. I’m taking a little credit for Fabian’s success as I played him in his first competitive game at The Honest Wargame… and lost!!

But in all seriousness this has all it needs. The 30 Skinks can get to 6 buffs in a turn and it makes them monsters, who scare even my Maw Krusha. And the Bastilidons shoot a crazy amount of damage, with one shooting twice for a single command point. Amazing value. Added to that their remarkable save all, for 250 points and it doesn’t matter that they are prime targets. Not many armies can kill one, let alone two.

Seraphon have been good for 2 years with a book most armies would kill for and Fabian takes advantage of this and his knowledge of the game to consistently finish high!

Declan: And… Seraphon again. Mike is the number one player in the UK mostly with Seraphon and he can pivot to anything the meta can throw at him. Only losing out in the last game in a close match with Dan’s non-standard new-look Beastmen.

Mike’s Seraphon is similar to Fabian’s but he has retained the 2 x 2 Salamanders – the disadvantage is that they now give up 1 victory point if you can kill them, the good thing is that the warscroll is still exceptionally strong. I’ve lost whole units of Brutes to 2 of them shooting, then charging – their melee profile is almost as good as the ranged.

The Thunder Lizards ability here is key as well. -1 Damage to all attacks (excluding mortal wounds), means the army needs a lot more damage to kill for most of the armies in the meta at the moment – affecting all monsters, Ironjawz (Warchanter) & Sons of Behemat (etc). It even negates the special rule of the Namarti Thralls from IdK when they attack the monsters (+1 damage is wounds over 3). Having a book that already invalidates one of the big benefits of a new book is crazy-good.

Well done to all in the top 3, and a quick shoutout to my club – Age of Chumps. There were 6 of us there finishing 3-2, 2-3, 2-3, 1-4, 1-4, 1-4. But Chrissie came away with Best Sports, which is the greatest award !!

Top Three AoS Lists from Fantasia Fanatic XLI

Fantasia Fanatic XLI was an 5 game Age of Sigmar tournament that took place in Sweden this weekend just past. It saw 33 players fighting to be crowned Champion.

1st Ronya Andersson – Nighthaunt

Ronya won four games and drew one with the older Nighthaunt book! Drawing in the first round against Lumineth Realm-Lords/Iliatha, then going on to beat Daughters of Khaine/Khelt Nar in Round 2, Seraphon/Thunder Lizard in Round 3, Maggotkin of Nurgle/Munificent Wanderers in Round 4 and Stormcast Eternals/Hammers of Sigmar in Round 5.

Declan – Wow… Ronya take a bow. Not even a suggestion of doing this the easy way either, with 2 Black Coaches (not the best units in the game to put it mildly), and against 5 armies all in the top half of the stats.

There’s even more credit for taking the Hexwraiths because no matter whether they are any good in the game I’ve never been able to find out – I assembled 5 of them, and wanted to kill the person who designed their fit! It’s awful. So double congratulations for running 25 of them!

2nd Alexis Herbeck – Stormcast Eternals

Alexis won 4 games and lost 1. Beating Blades of Khorne/Reapers of Vengeance in round 1, Soulblight Gravelords/Vyrkos Dynasty in round 2, Cities of Sigmar/Living Cityin round 3 and Seraphon/Dracothion’s Tail in round 4 before losing against Ronya Andersson and their Nighthaunt/Emerald host list in round 5.

Declan: Regular readers will be board of Longstrikes, shooting in one hero phase (Thunderbolt Volley); Teleporting on a 2+ (rerollable) with the Relictor and backed up by 2 Stormdrake Guard… wow! Prime Targets making little difference with this army as if you can’t kill them in the first place the fabled extra point is making no difference at all.

This is no criticism of Alexis – it’s in the book; it’s legal – take it!

3rd Per Sigvallius – Cities of Sigmar

Per also managed four wins and a single loss. Beating Idoneth Deepkin/Ionrach in round 1, Fyreslayers/Greyfyrd in round 2. then losing against the Stormcast Eternals/Hammers of Sigmar of 2nd place Alexis in round 3, before going on to beat Soulblight Gravelords/Vyrkos Dynasty in round 4 and Seraphon/Thunder Lizards in round 5.

Declan – I really like Cities of Sigmar lists, because it reminds me of my days playing Empire in Warhammer Fantasy, and I still have an army for Warmaster… so hark back to the good days of Crossbowmen and Halberdiers – all mono-pose.

Per has gone with a ‘not Cities’ Cities list like many before him though with 4 Dragons in one unit and 4 Dracothian Guard. At 1,120 points for these Stormcast units, it is a Stormcast army… just with some cheap units to back it up.

And the 30 Crossbows dish out damage – shorter range than the longstrikes and not as common, but ignore them at your peril – and that’s why this army works. Target priority… all of it good … and you want to kill it all. I don’t know what I’d go for first, but probably the Dragons to get a few points on the board before Per steamrollers the rest through!

Well done on a 4-1 — this needs to be piloted and practiced with.

1st Mateusz Eljasz – Hedonites of Slaanesh

Mateusz won all of his games over the weekend bringing a Hedonites list that takes five wins! Along the way Mateusz beat Maggotkin of Nurgle/Drowned Men in round 1, Lumineth Realm-Lords/Alumnia in round 2, Ogor Mawtribes/Bloodgullets in round 3, Daughters of Khaine/Hagg Nar in round 4 and Seraphon/Thunder Lizard in round 5.-

To be honest I have no idea how Mateusz has done it, and all I can say is congratulations!

Don’t underestimate the level of damage that this list will push out at distance, and with good resilience. Plus getting them into a 2 drop with the Redemption Brotherhood & Battle Regiments means that Jakub is getting to choose first or second on 75% of occasions (statistically)!!

Declan – some of the Seraphon players I’ve spoken to are not sure the Salamanders are worth it as Prime Targets, but they are still good units at a good price and you still have to kill them to get any points. At 11 drops Ziemek isn’t getting choice of turn often, but with 3 monsters, and -1 damage, he’s able to survive most of the alpha strikes, and shooting armies and get some early damage in as well. The Seraphon book remains one of the most versatile in the game, and Ziemek’s list is no exception. Well done to all in the top 3.
