The Lie of the Land

I was having a think the other morning about which armies provided the greatest opportunity to win a tournament. Important when doing this is to define the parameters. For the purpose of this exercise I’m assuming 5-6 rounds, 2000-2400 points, scenarios and the type of light comp system I have previously proposed in this blog.

My thoughts are that armies fall into a number of broad categories – Strong Contenders, Competitive and Pushing Proverbial Uphill.

Under 8th Edition the playing field is a lot more level than it has been since I started playing mid-2006. That means on their day any army/race can have a chance but the key thing for me in assessing the field is the ability to string 5-6 wins together (given no leg up).

Tomorrow I’ll start my run through with the armies I consider the least competitive.

  1. Interesting idea. I've been tempted to do the same for some time. Would be fun to match our results :)
