ETC Week! Final Practice - Blood Angels





So my final practice night against Barra MacNiocaill's Blood Angels, great list for the ETC by the way, Barra's list was the four Land Raider shield list Team RoI are bringing. We also got our dice and t-shirts from Captain Richard Flood (for a price...):


The list I've shipped out with is at the bottom of the post but should be familiar to most as the list I used last year. It's a real workhorse list for the ETC team in that it can be bid against most opponents and while it doesn't tend to get twenty points off any list at all it tends not to give away twenty as well.

The matchup tonight was one I'm comfortable with, lots of high priority targets that my Obliterators can target and make their points back right away and a list with few scoring units in an event where scoring units are almost a dime a dozen (Tervigon spam, grey knights, imperial guard, space wolves, Orks, etc.):

Played by the masterful MacNiocaill however it wouldn't be quite so easy. Barra is experienced at not only "gypsying" opponent's key objectives at the last minute but also at estimating where his Land Raiders need to be to claim two simultaneous objectives. It really is a pleasure to watch but uncomfortable to plan against someone so crafty.

Sorry to have to cut this short but I have to go pack now for the flight! So that's me signing off from this brief journey into ETC hell, hopefully I'm enjoying pints over the corpses of our fallen enemies by the time this is put on the War Altar by good Mr. Kroon.

Good luck to all four Irish teams attending this year!!
