Belgian Grand Open! A two day tournament in Wieze and the last 5th edition tournament! So how did it go? A bit meeeh! First day I lost all 3 battles. But the most fun we had was on the way to the place itself! I took my jink save with my car! Dodged a few pillars in the middle of the route. They were working on the exit of the motorway, one of my friends yelled "It's to the right!" So I looked for an entrance and hop I drove in, but there a few pillars in the middle of the route a few meters further. So yeah jink save on a 5+! Pass and then the right entrance in! Hooray for the renault clio!

The First battle against Eldar was with kill points and you had to divide 5stars to the army list of your opponent. I got tabled so I didn't got much Kill Points. 1 vs 22 KP! Really I understatement Eldar! Everything I shot with got strength 8. So my lascannons where now 8 except of 9. Kind of was a bummer for me + the dice gods failed me again!

Second battle was against Necrons! Wraith spam! I knew the result of this battle before we started. He is one of the top 3 in the Belgium ranking! I'm a bit glad I could play against him but the match up was weird. He won and I lost. So we met each other in round two. Really weird. I blame the organization for this lose! Just kidding! It was a really good and smart player. I did what I could do... shoot and hope things died! Another battle lost for me! It was time for a Duvel!! And new dice! So this will most likely be my 6th Edition dice!
Next battle was against Space Wolves! Not just any space wolves: Drop pod style and Logan wing! Also it was against a fellow Bolter and chainsword member! We met in other tournaments but it was fun to play against him! Skyrars Dark Wolves This mission was about holding objectives. 3 objectives. He landed with 2 drop pods right on them, then I shot one drop pod from it and then he deep strikes his land speeder on it! The battle was fun and sadly I couldn't contested with the lone sergeant against his Terminator Wolf Guard! Fun battle it was! I did parked my razorbacks and predator nice so he could shoot my vehicles in the behind!
Day two! A new day and we where battle ready! First battle: 3 objectives again! I played against miss/ commander Leafblower. 3 Hydra's, 2 Basilisk, 5 chimera's and then 2 vendetta's. Pfff I thought and I didn't do the right thing again! I should have moved 18inch. Popped smoke! And then when his shooting was done => full fire and assault in his vehicles! But it was a good battle. 2 predators survived AND! contested his objectives! I got mine save in the back with a home sitting squad there, behind a tree, so I got a cover save! My first win in a long time! The other one was with double teams. So that's halve the win.

On to the next battle! Tyranids with kill points! Really? And the terrain was the size of a razorback + turret so no shooting over that. I was cursing the maker of that scenery! But it was a draw, cause we just played 4 turns and the next turn was a total loss for me. But since we both had to think which unit to shoot, to move, to have cover or to assault. Which was good for me! A fun battle! I got 8 on 10 for my army painting and scored a 13/20 for fluff quiz. Some good guess's also in there. We did have one fantasy player with us. I know he did better than me, but didn't go photo from the fantasy ranking only the 40k! Sorry folks! See you next tournament!
