I think that it may be because it had Nilfy in it. The big adorable brute...

You know, there probably is some truth to that.

So, I was kind of joking with all of this. I actually ended up playing 3x Knights, Nilfheim, Sir Gilbert, and Eldgrim at KC this last weekend. I went 4-1, losing just one game to pretty bad luck. It was in the second round though, so I might have had some tougher games later if I hadn't lost then.

It was a real solid army and I'd play it again. It suits my playing style (read:Nilfheim) very well.

Re: Tournament Armies Played

I played a similar army (well, pretty much exactly the same, but the point value was lower, so only 2x KoW); I made one really poor choice in one game and so went 3-1, missing the top four by just a few points (same win/loss and SoS, only about 30 points or so different).

I loved the army--it was very fun and effective. Eldgrim is a total champ, grabbing glyphs and just generally being where your enemy doesn't expect, and Sir G with the Knights is always good times. Having Nilf in there just made the whole package sweeter--first time I played a largely melee army as well as the first time I took Nilf to a tourney. Glad I did.

(One map, against a Nilf and Samurai army, I switched up my usual play to send Nilf in first, getting height and killing all the samurai, plus a Zeta, and wounding the enemy Nilf. I got lucky, but also found that Nilf is a beast against those samurai.)

Re: Tournament Armies Played

I updated my first post with the recent Hextreme New Year tournament in Kansas City.

Hexetreme New Year - Kansas City, MO:
Army = 2xrats, 4xstingers, Krav, Laglor (530pts)
wins of worseley, bobofdeath
Results 4-1 (9th overall)

I actually improved my win rate this time; it took a beating at gencon and NHSD. I am 81-39 overall in tournament play for a 67.5% win rate.

I had 5 other armies under consideration but the final selling point was that it took up all 24 hexes, while using all the points and not having to eat a figure.

A must read for all 'Scapers!

Re: Tournament Armies Played

Dayton, Ohio (Jan)

Couldn't spend more than 140 points on any one card (or total on common squads). Went 4-1 and took 5th (I think...it might have been 4th, I was a little out of it after the games) with:

2x Roman Legos
Marcus
Me-Burq-Sa
Marro Warriors
Kaemon Awa
Raelin

Had a couple close games on difficult maps to use Romans (large hills, etc.) but ended up beating 2 valiant 4th Mass armies, a Viper Army, and a mish mosh army (arrows/Krug, Rae, Kaemon and EI).

Had a good time and feel much more secure about the upcoming Louisville Tourny.

My total tourny record is now 23-7 for a 77% win rate (thanks to Jexik for point it out) an increase of 1%

There's something wrong with your math here. Going 4-1 on the day should increase your win rate unless you were over 80% to begin with.

I just checked your last post, and you were 19-6 at that time, so you should be 23-7 now, for a total of ~77% win rate. (76.6%)

Re: Tournament Armies Played

I too was at the Dayton Tourney, with the following army in hand.

Marcus
Romans x2
4th x2
MBS
Drake I

I went 5-0 winning the tourney along with a set of sweet Custom Engraved Heroscape Beer mugs. My overall OVHA tourney record is 14-1 with a winning percentage of 93%. My overall record in tourneys is 19-4, including some bad games at Gencon.
