|Our Team "Knights of the Sanctuary" - Jevin (IG), Me (BA), Valace2 (GK), John (GK)|
|Picture from our one win - Jevin (IG) and I (BA) did pretty well on the heavy terrain table against BA+GK|
I practiced two team games leading up to the tournament against mech GK and found my mech BA lists lacking. At 1000 points with a restricted FoC, I didn't know how much more creative I could be.

Not the most competitive list, but I thought it was fun to play some jumpers. I used the whole available FoC that I had. The scouts had a great 1st game, then took the next two rounds off. The Land Speeder killed nothing. Unfortunately, I seemed to have a hard time cracking tanks and often had to assault to get to the troops inside. My 10 man assault squad with the libby and priest were definitely my MVPs on the day.
It was interesting for me to see what the other Blood Angels players brought. I was surprised at how effective some units were against us. Furioso Librarian dreadnoughts, outflanking Flamestorm Baal Predators, Death company in a Godhammer Land Raider? It was cool to see units that the internet feels are uncompetitive work in a tournament. I stopped playing a lot of those options and now I am eager to try out some more things that go against the Internet mentality. Here are some pictures from the day. Congratulations to the winners. Next time we will have to visit your house.
Thanks to Cerberus for being the TO and to Michael for setting up everything and getting the word out. It's nice for someone like me to just be able to show up and play. Thanks guys.
