ENCORE 1000pts Highlander Tournament My List

So this Saturday sees me going up to MAGEE CORE in Derry Northern Ireland for a 1 day 40K 1000pts Highlander tournaments, these tournament are becoming quite popular with the local players, as you're not allowed to duplicate any unit, and there is also some restrictions in regards to what you can take in your force organisation chart. And because it's at such a low pointed level, you can easily do 5 rounds in one day which makes you get more ranking points in RHQ.

Check out this post Dominion Day V Battle Report Game 1 & 2 to find out more as this is the second Highlander tournaments, I have attended recently with a mixed bag of results so all being well I'm hoping to do a little bit better this time around.

So this is what I'm deciding to bring

* HQ
    * Big Mek
        Bosspole, Choppa, Slugga

* Elites
    * Lootas
        15x Loota

* Nobz 

        * Nob
            Choppa, Cybork Body (Grotsnik), Slugga, Warbike
        * Nob
            Big Choppa, Cybork Body (Grotsnik), Slugga, Warbike
        * Nob
            Big Choppa, Cybork Body (Grotsnik), Shoota/Scorcha Kombi-Weapon, Warbike
        * Nob
            Big Choppa, Bosspole, Cybork Body (Grotsnik), Slugga, Warbike
        * Nob
            Cybork Body (Grotsnik), Power Klaw, Slugga, Waagh Banner, Warbike

* Troops

    * Gretchin
        10x Gretchin
        * Runt Herder
            Grabba Stikk

    * Ork Boyz
        30x Boy
        * Nob
            Bosspole, Power Klaw

* Fast Attack
    * Deffkoptas
        * Deffkopta
            Buzzsaw, Twin-Linked Big Shootas

* Heavy Support
    * Big Gunz
        3x Ammo Runts
        * Big Gun
            2x Grot Krew, Kannon
        * Big Gun
            2x Grot Krew, Kannon
        * Big Gun
            2x Grot Krew, Kannon

So there you have it, as always there's lots of potential but it largely depends on who I'm going to play on the day.


  1. Is there a special rule that is allowing you to take the Nobs as troops without a Warboss / Ghaz?

  2. Nope, but he can take them as elites and still meet the tournament criteria, they'll just not be scoring.

  3. Hey tom. Gimmie a ring. We need to sort out lifts to encore. We'll have to go early tomorrow.
