On Saturday I played in Dark Future Games Adepticon Primer tournament held at Game Links in Fowlerville. OST did a great job running the tournament at Game Links which is in a great location for many players in the area. I was amazed that there were no Grey Knights at all (yay!). I think the tally was three Blood Angels, three Necrons, one Dark Angel, one Black Templar, one Ork, and one Chaos Daemon player. The Chaos Daemon player won the day.
I tried to come up with a new 1850 roster for my Blood Angels, but I ended up going with a variant of what I like to call my "go-to" double Stormraven list. I was pleasantly surprised that my army was voted "player's choice" for the painting award. It is a good thing no one noticed the couple of unpainted marines.
I ended up with 2 wins and 1 loss. That is same number of wins/losses in my last four local tournaments with Blood Angels. So I seem to have consistency if nothing else.
Here are some highlight pictures from the day! Apologies for some of the washed out pictures as I left the flash on "auto". My camera always makes by Blood Angels look so bright red!
Game 1 was versus a great looking Ork army. These were the coolest looking Battlewagons I have ever seen. He actually combined two kits to make each one. They were fully loaded with removable tops to actually deploy the troops they were carrying!
Game 2 was against a nicely painted and converted Nurgle Chaos Daemon list. This was a brutal game for me. I actually started yelling at my dice at one point. The low point was my Assault Terminators running off the battlefield after losing combat to one of his Great Unclean Ones.

Game 3 was against DFG's (in)famous Chris Vinton who brought his Necrons. As usual, Chris had some really cool conversions on display including a cool looking Triarch Stalker (sp?). This was only my second game against the Newcrons, and Chris had a lot of stuff I haven't played against including two of the annoying drive-by-assault command barges. Thanks Matt Ward!
All three of the Necron players ran pretty different lists. It's nice to see variations from a new book. Here's some pictures of the other Necron armies.
