Welcome back to the Vault! First Founding's annual autumnal 40K tournament will soon be here, and has become something of a tradition it's time for me to indulge in some amateur punditry and pretend I know something about the state of 40K.
We have 28 players with 27 having turned in their army lists. Their factions have been published on the events page so lets see who's turning up.
I've lumped all the Space Marine players into a single "super" faction as it highlights how few other Imperial players there are. There is a healthy split between Imperial, Chaos and Xenos players in attendance.
So what are the individual factions?
So I need to make some predictions for the day. In no particular order here are my top three:
Dark Eldar: Top tier codex piloted by a very capable player
Tyranids: I've played against one of these lists and it has literally squeezed every ounce of efficiency out of the current book.
Thousand Sons: shiny new book that a lot of players won't have faced before. Canny Cabalists will surprise their opponents.
And my Wild Card goes to: Imperial Knights. Big stompy robots backed up with Assassins. It's bonkers enough it deserves to do well.
I'm looking forward to Saturday and we'll see how well my predictions do!
