Warhammer Fest 2019

Warhammer Fest 2019 is coming soon, and I cannot wait to get my teeth into a Grand Clash again! Get your tickets today! After January’s dismal efforts with a Thorns of the Briar Queen deck that I pulled off the internet and didn’t practice with, I don’t feel like I did myself any favours! Back in the project draw for you spooky ghosts!

Last year at Warhammer Fest 2018 I was running my Aggressive Skaven and placed a modest 14th, but there were Katophrane Relics aplenty and I got stonewalled by them. It was the best of times. It was the blurst of times.

In case you weren’t following the competitive scene back then the final was between two Katophrane Relic Stallcast factions that both won a game, and drew a third – they were entirely matched on everything – wins, losses, glory diff…so they rolled off to decide who won the event. Congrats to Max Barton…

What to take to Warhammer Fest 2019?

But who is going to win this year? Well, there are plenty of people going and assuming that nothing changes before then i.e. no new warbands are released, it’s difficult to see how the meta lies.

  • Mollog’s Mob – a generally strong choice, and the faction does reasonably well given the Grand Clash format.
  • Farstriders – a great meta-call given the popularity of Gitz & Thorns BUT they seriously struggle into Mollog.
  • Cursebreakers – these seem like the best all-rounder and a clear head above the rest, so will probably be the choice I fall on.
  • Magore’s Fiends – or the ever present and competing Magore’s Fiends could sway me. I’ve not won Shadeglass with them yet…

I guess we’ll see what takes my fancy on the day! Hopefully I’ll see you there too! Let me know in the comments if you’re planning to attend!
