Yesterday we hosted one of the six UK Regionals this year for the Warhammer 40K Conquest LCG. We had a fantastic attendance, with 36 people showing up from all over the country, as well as quite a diverse selection of warlords.
Since there isn’t an official Autumn League, we decided to do a league with a bit of a twist. One of our players, James, suggested that we do a faction-based one. After a bit of discussion we came up with the idea of players being assigned a faction to represent, where they’d have to use both warlords that were currently available. The results of both warlords would be added together to form the faction’s overall result.
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.

Week Four of the X-Wing Summer League has just finished. Loki added another good result (2nd) with his double YT-1300 list to his impressive run of results so far (1st, 1st and 2nd). That puts him on top of the league going into the final week. However, it is still possible for Jack or Tim (that’s me!) to catch him.
