So I attended another tourney at our FLGS this past weekend. We had a low turnout of 8 people. But it is the holidays and that is to be expected.
I played my typical kan wall orks and had a great day. Here is how it went.
Spearhead Deployment with two objectives centered in the two opposite quadrants.
My opponent is our local tau player that does well in almost every tourney. Now you are thinking tau...thats an easy match. Not true with how the table was set. The table was covered in rivers and difficult terrain. With me being on foot I could not go assault him and expect to make it back to the objectives. I took out his large kroot mob early and had to sit and wait for turn 6. He went first so I would get to counter charge and hopefully pull out the win. Over these turns I lost 6 kans, 60 boyz and my stormboyz. That was to be expected if I was going to sit back and wait. The game ended with me cleaning him off one ovjective with my nobz and my kans contesting the other. I got a major win.
Pitched battle with 5 objectives, one placed dead center and the other 2 in our own deployment zones.
I was playing vs a bike and mech kahn list. I knew I could not let him get the charge and that would be hard with his 12 inch move and 6 inch charge...but that is why I have stormboyz and ghaz. I marched behind my kan wall and he could only charge the kans and not the boyz. By turn 2 and 3 had massive assaults made by me and I nearly tabled him by then end of turn 4. I won and got a massacre.

I got to play vs an all jump BA list. 3x squads with priests, vanguard, honor guard with jump, dante, and lib. Same problem as last game with him out charge ranging me. I placed my kans in front followed by my 30 man mobs and had my stormboyz and nobz sit in the middle for counter charges. He quickly came to the realization that he would only be able to charge the kans and maybe the boyz and then get wiped by the stormboyz and nobz. He got backed into the corner and on turn 5 the major assault began. I tabled him by on turn 6. I got a massacre from this game.
I won the tourney and bought a round of drinks for everyone with the winnings. It was another great tourney for my orks and a good test finally getting to play vs jump angels.
