This was the final week of our Summer League and the current standings were very close.  So far in the league I have used Baharroth, Urien Rakarth, Aun’shi and Torquemada Coteaz, so they were unavailable for this week.  Since it was the final week and I was in a position to challenge for the league title, I decided to go with a warlord that I have used before, Zarathur.  Since one of the prizes for this league is an alternate art Zarathur, I thought this would be quite fitting as well.

This week I decided to go with Torquemada Coteaz.  I have played a decent number of friendly games with him and have had favourable results, most of them resulting in the opposing warlord’s death.  That strategy was the one I was going with in this tournament; I would try to keep constant pressure on their warlord and kill them when possible. The planet lineup was of course important, but I was going to consider it my secondary win-condition.

After week three of five of our Warhammer 40K Conquest Summer League, the scores are incredibly close. Currently Tim is in the lead on 38 points, with James L and Gareth both only 1 point behind on 37. Then there’s a small drop down to Rik, me and Drew, all of whom still have a chance at the title. Just two more events to go, and with the top four scores only counting, it’s still wide open. Because you’re only allowed to play each Warlord once, could it be that Tim, James and Gareth have already played their favourites and have to play a Warlord they don’t like for the last two tournaments?

Tim 38
James L 37
Gareth 37
Rik 30
Karl 30
Drew 27
Loki 25
Rob 19
Joe 8
JD 8
Owen 7
James G 7

For this tournament I decided to go with a warlord that I have not yet used in a competitive environment; Urien Rakarth.  He receives a lot of negativity in the online community (I am sure that some of you are already laughing at my choice of warlord) and whilst I freely admit that Packmaster Kith is a much stronger choice, leagues like this are a good opportunity to try out the less-used warlords, particularly as the stakes are quite low.  Anyway, onto the decklist!

Since 2002 A Game of Thrones has been a great success for Fantasy Flight Games. A 2-4 player Living Card Game, it’s been through several expansions and now it’s time for 2nd Edition!

FFG have cleaned up the rules, streamlining the game, and are about to release the new edition in the next few weeks in the UK. If you can’t wait to see what the excitement is about, local card guru Rik has proxied up the new release and will be providing training sessions at the shop this Friday and Saturday. Why not come along and see if you have what it takes to rules Westeros?
