Armies at this weekends WHFB tournament

The field for this weekends Horned Gobbo Tournament in Wellington is one of the biggest for one of Pete Dunns events for a few years with 30 players confirmed.  The list of armies that will be making an appearance is interesting, although from latest info I'm not quite sure what book the remaining 4 are coming from.

  • Lizardmen - 4
  • High Elves - 3 (including mine)
  • Vampire Counts - 3
  • Wood Elves - 3
  • Beastmen - 2
  • Dwarves - 2
  • Skaven - 2
  • Bretonnians - 1
  • Chaos Dwarfs (BOO) - 1
  • Daemons - 1
  • Empire - 1
  • Ogres - 1
  • Orcs n Goblins - 1
  • Tomb Kings - 1
 Of those whose lists have been submitted (due today) 21/29 are bringing Level 4 Archmages so we are going to see a plethora of magic this weekend - makes me glad I altered my list to include both the Sigil of Asuryan and a Dispel Scroll.  High Magic also means I can get 'Drain Magic' off when needed as well.

Surprising to see the 3 Wood Elf armies attending and only one each of the Ogres, Orcs n Goblins and Tomb Kings all of whom have new books.  Would have thought the newer books would be getting more of a run especially as OnG seemed to be so prevalent at tournaments last year.  The small Empire turnout probably reflects the fact that Empire players havent absorbed the new book yet and I'm guessing that the Chaos Dwarfs marks the return of at least one of the Stanton brothers.

Going to be a fun weekend - just need to paint 3 movement trays and 5 White Lions and I'm all set.
