Wildcard: Hugh Wilson – Seraphon

I’ve never picked a Seraphon list as the wildcard, but in this case I had to! Count them up, three Dread Saurians! Hugh finished 20th and claimed one victory with this completely of meta list over the two days, well done! His path saw him lose against Fyreslayers/Greyfyrd in round 1, beat Big Waagh! in round 2, then went on to lose against Stormcast Eternals/Hallowed Knights in round 3, Stormcast Eternals/Hammers of Sigmar in round 4 and Stormcast Eternals/Hammers of Sigmar in round 5. The poor chap played three Stormcast Armies! Well done for going off the meta and being willing to break the mould!

Thanks to Tavendale from NoRerolls for pointing me towards this list.
