pics for you! I went to the first Indy 40K tournament last weekend, and here are some teaser pics of the armies. I didn't get everyone's names, and I'm feeling like I've missed a few armies. It seems like there were more people there to me. I'll put in some names, and you guys can help me with the rest.
my WH force, I will put up a list with the battle reports
J Lay's pure Sisters force (my first game)
Aaron B's SpaceMarines (my 4th game)
CalyunDarr's Mech Eldar
Chad B's Chaos! I think
Archfiend of Dezdemon (EvilTed)'s Ork trukk convoy (my 3rd game)
Blood Angels. Check out that StormRaven!
Overall, I had a good time. I won my first, lost my second, Won my third, and won my fourth games. of the 13, I came in 6th (which I'm still trying to figure out) I thought 3W 1L would have put me higher. Then again, I don't for certain know how pairings were made.
JLay's Sisters of Battle (Win)
Carlos' Nids (loss)
EvilTed's Orks (Win)
Aaron B's Marines (Win)
Carlos did thump me really bad though. Probably worse then I thumped the people who placed above me. Carlos got first with a perfect win record, though. 4 for 4. I think his matchings were:

I don't remember right now who Carlos faced for his 3rd game. My head was spinning from my dice shutting off during our game. Like, failing to hit with 80% of my shots, and then failing to wound most of the ones that hit bad, then turning around and failing 75% of my armor saves the next turn bad. it was horrible.
but I had a good day, and got some good games in. I like the missions for the most part. The only mission I wasn't crazy about was a capture the prisoner mission, and it didn't matter how the mission was. I played Carlos, and my dice quit on me.
I'll do some battle reports for the games I took pics of. I've got pics of most of the games. I might have gotten sketchy on my last two games (I tend to start forgetting late in the day).
