2013 Adepticon Team Tournament Winners....Again!

By Spaguatyrine

Team They Shall Know Fear
The Team tournament was tough this year with a 5th game and a 2nd day added to the event.  We played a total of 10 games and came out on top by the skin of our teeth in the last round.




Below is the score card for the top 10 teams or so.  We were only 16 points above the 2nd place team the Sons of Shattner.  It was a forgone conclusion from the judges that before our final battle it would be nearly impossible for anyone except Sons of Shattner to win.  Sons were 1st seed and we were 4th with only 301 points going into the last round.  They had 338 points going into the last round.  Unfortunately for them we had a great match up against them and they only ended up with 6 points in both games to our 59 points. 


This year was closer than last year but we pulled it out in the last game against the top seeded team Sons of Shatner.
 The Chicago Kamikazes and Team So Cal Elite also ended up beating on each other who where in 2nd and 3rd at the time.  So the extra game adds a huge dimension and also allows for some poor games to catch up.  All our opponents where great and we appreciate the positive sportsmanship.  We rated every opponent a positive game.  Thank you again.

As for the lists we used I will give the basic of what we had:

List 1:  Brad (Team Captain)
Coteaz
3 plasma servitors, 5 henchmen
4 henchmen, 3 crusaders, 5 deathcults
Land Raider Crusader with psybolts
10 Strikes with psybolts and 1 hammer
1 dreadknight with heavy incinerator

List 2:  Andrew
Lord Commissar
40 Platoon Blob with sniper
40 Platoon Blob with Commissar and sniper
Platoon command squad
Platoon command squad
2 Vendettas
3 x Thud guns

List 3: Nick
Inquisitor with Psyker
20 strikes with psybolt and 1 hammer
3 plasma servitors. 5 henchmen
Storm Raven
1 dreadknight with heavy incinerator

List 4: Aaron (Me)
Inquisitor with Psyker
20 Strikes with psybolt and 1 hammer
3 plasm serviotrs, 5 henchmen
Storm Raven
1 dreadknight with heavy incinerator
These lists worked great together but we had problem with a mirror match up in round 3 and necrons on round 4 where we made a mistake on our blob match up.  Besides that we had great games with great opponents and look forward to trying for a 2nd time to defend the title of the biggest 40k tournament in the world:

  3. Congratulations. Some stuff seemed to go your way but it takes a lot of skill to take the whole tournament twice in a row! Well played guys!

    1. The games definitely ebb and flow. Without a killer game in the last round it would have been different. Thanks korona.

  4. Congrats Spag. This was my first year doing the team tournament (I filled in for a club mate of ours that had to drop out at the last minute). What an awesome event - to win two years in a row is impressive. Are you joining your team captain out here in the Bugeater GT in June? We'd love to have you man.

  5. Still deciding. I would love to but my work schedule might limit that ability. A true team effort. Thanks!

  6. Congrats, gents.

    Thud Guns? Was Andy using Forge World rules? I've never been to an Adepticon or similar event, so I don't know what they allow.

  9. Hey Jordan! Yep, I was using thudd guns (now named quad launchers). Adepticon allows some forgeworld (basically 40k approved stuff, but they have their own list) at the Team Event, no FW for the singles GT, and almost all FW for the Gladiator event (I think max is 3 or 5 SP vehicles).

    Quad launchers were very, very good...

    1. What's shaking, Andy? Good to see you're still taking people's lunch money in the competitive scene. That's good stuff, these events seem like a lot of fun. Reading all the bloggers' post-Adepticon has been pretty interesting.

  10. Rockin' it man! Wish I could have been on my friends' team - would have been fun to play against you guys. My friends you played in round 4 are happy with their distinction of being one of the only team to really give you guys a hard time :-p

    Are you actually thinking of going to the Bugeater? I recommend it man - been there both years it's been run, and though it isn't a 'big' event, it's well run and very laid back. If so, see you in a month!
