Samuel together with Card Geeks organized another Henchman Hardcore tournament for the local players. This time we managed to gather 10 players.
I brought Rusy Alyce, Johan, Strongarm Suit and Desperate Mercenary. Ai brought Ottotto, Jorugumo, Lone Swordsman and a Clockwork Trap. We both built the lists based on how hard they could hit considering Henchman Hardcore tend to encourage face beating.
My first opponent was Patrick. His list was one that made mine Slow. Really slow. He eventually made a gamble (which we felt he didn't have to) to try to take out Alyce. Unfortunately for him, I managed to score a Red Joker and proceeded to take his Leader down to more than half, awarding me an additional 1 point and drawing the game.
|4-4 draw. Patrick was berating himself for awhile! LOL|

|Ai's list take on Eugene's list. It was a hilarious game with them tying for 2-2|
|Ai managed to take down my Desperate Merc early game but in return I killed off the Swordsman. We drew 2-2|
Unfortunately for him, I took out his Void Wretch early and then did a bit of wounds on the Nothing Beast. However, it managed to do some massive return hits and took my Strongarm Suit down.
While he failed to kill off Alyce, I fluffed by flips against Aionius who limped away with 3 wounds.
|It was a draw for 3-3|
It seemed like I could not get a break. I was drawing the whole day! Every game! LOL
|Just another beauty shot of my crew.|
In the Final Round I was teed up against Ed who had just gotten into the game. I have never fought against the Gremlins before this and had no idea what to expect so lined up as per normal. He had a Peon so I knew I had the model advantage for the Strategy.
In a stroke of strategic genius, Ed split one of his Wild Boars out to my flank (it has a 9" threat range) and in one activation managed to kill off my Strongarm Suit!! However, a oversight by Ed left one of his models outside the 6" reach from the token, allowing me to claim it. I also managed to bring his Leader down to half wounds, giving me another point for a 3-1 win.
|And it's Jack Daw Transparent!|
In all, everyone got what they wanted and unfortunately there was no Best Painted -- the one prize I always go for. Next tournament then!
It's going to be 50SS full crew in 2 months!
See you fellas around for that one!
