Great Kubla con

Overall this was the best Kubla con I have attended.

Top notch opponents especially my second and third game.

Great missions:  Really fun and different plus.

Great terrain and organization.  The guys that ran it this year just had it down.  Really well done

I got reamed on painting again but I dont really know what to say about that.  Maybe next time I will make sure I am there when the judge is in order to point everything out.  A little bummed here but its ok.

I will try and get some write ups and post the missions this week they were very cool

Ready for Kubla

Just finished this morning the whole army.  Hopefully tonight I get a chance to take a pic before I pack em up.

I am pretty excited for tomorrow and looking forward to meeting some new people and hopefully winning some games.

My list is:
2 Daemon Princes, Mark of Nurgle, Wings, Warptime
1 Greater Daemon
2 CSM Dreads, CC weapons
2/ 4 CSMs with 1 melta in Rhinos with 1 Champ with combi-melta n
2/ 5 CSMs with 1 melta in Rhinos
2/ 3 CSM bikers with 2 meltasua
3/ 2 Obliterator squads

I know the Obliterator squads are a bit beardy but I am going to be going against SpaceWolves and I know my comp score will be fucked.  Considering that I played against 2 Razorback spam armies last time that had high comp scores who knows.

Regardless of the comp stuff I know I will have a good time.  This is always a fun tourney and I had some good practice this time.

Defiler out the door

They got voted off the island.

My main reason was that I just didnt see how I could effectively field them with all these tanks, MCs and Dreads.  I didnt want them to cause a traffic jam and cause they can shoot its too tempting to do that even tho its lame.

So my new list for Kubla is looking like:
2 DP Nurgle WT
Summoned Greater Daemon
2 CSM dreads with CC option
2 2 bikers with metlas and 1 with nothing
2 5 CSM squad in rhino 1 melta
2 4 CSM with a Champ 1 melta
3 2 obilt squads

6 oblits should provide a lot more FP and I could always DS them if I wanted to be crazy.

Playtesting my kubla list

Finally got a game in at 1850 with the deflier and my CSM Zilla list.

Overall I was pretty happy but I was not aggressive enough.  I need to push more of my army on top of my opponents if I am going to stand a chance.  I seriously dont know how I will handle long range and horde armies but it will be fun.

I just need not to overthink myself into bad decisions.
