Final results for latest tournament were just released. Scoring system was:
Battle Points - 40%
Sportsmanship - 20%
Composition - 25%
Presentation - 15%
A score of 16.67/25 for composition is pretty standard for Dwarfs with a good balance between shooting and infantry. I only had 5 DD and 2 Scrolls. My Lord wasn't over the top in terms of protection with a basic 1+ re-rollable AS which compared to Generals in other armies is pretty tame, e.g., Chaos Demons, Chaos Warriors, Wood Elves. I also had nearly 50% of my army points invested in core troops, so I am really not sure where I lost out in this area.
Presentation score of 8/15 is understandable, particularly given the really amazing armies that were on display at the tournament so I am reasonably happy with that. It puts me kind of in the middle which is cool.
Looking over the results though I can't help wonder what a better comp score would have meant for my finishing position. I have more battle points than the armies in 10th and 11th, 14th and 15th, but worse comp scores which seems to be the major reason I finished in 18th not higher. What exactly is a Dwarf player supposed to do???
Mind you what really cost me was my poor decision making in my final game after getting a strong advantage following deployment. That and my general running away and dying in Game 3 giving my opponent a 650pt turnaround in VP. Would have swung the scoring in that game from 9-11 in his favour to maybe 12-8 or 14-6 in mine.
