Public Vote: 3rd Place.


I've narrowed the position of winner to two lists, but the third place is a lot harder to find. While there's no prize for anything but 1st save pride, I'm sure each of you would like to know who gets it, with what, and, if you got it, the recognition can't be a bad thing.

So, without further ado, the contents of the lists, without entrant names, to avoid bias, for your perusal. Please take the time to vote for your pick of 3rd, ie, the best of these lists. :)

If your list didn't make it, I apologise, there IS a reason, that will become apparent when I publish the rest after announcing the victor. Obviously, no-one will know if you vote for your own list, but I'd like to think you guys are all more honest than that. :)

ALSO - PLEASE, don't post comments that in any way give away which list is yours, lol. Kinda beats the point.

TOTAL: 1470

THREE - Space Marines

Here is your fail. Sicarius is crap as an HQ, Not one single melta in the army, not one single powerfist, Only 1 ap2 weapon and 2 weapons that can maybe slowdown av14. No mech, 2 troops, 185 points for a devastator squad that totes only 1 heavybolter, and Vanguard veterans who deepstrike kill maybe only guard and Tau in the assault and die. I couldnt win with this army even if it went against 180 grots.

FOUR - Tau

I did not realize a single kroot squad un-failed me...ah well. I shall try again! I'd hoped the Krootox would've DQ'ed me, but here we go. Minor tweakage.

Total: 1499

AND I fail to use a point. I realized that missile pods are too un-fail; so we lost those for BURST CANNONS.

The theme is much the same. I almost added a Hammerhead (albiet, armed with an Ion Cannon), but another AV13 vehicle might actually be dangerous. instead, Sniper Drone Teams! Sniper rifles will REALLY HELP. I freakin' swear. BS3 rail rifles are where it's at FOR FAILURE. I have added as much fail as I think I can to the list. Generally, I think the bonding knives are fail because chances are the squads that have them are squishy enough to fold like wet napkins when they do get hit.

So, there we go. I'd really like to see Imperial Guard Fail. THAT is a challenge. SM fail, probably not as much. Necron Fail is probably the other one, but you have to admit that they have an amazing anti-infantry redundancy, though.
