NZTC 18 days away and counting...

The now annual NZTC (New Zealand Team Championships) is just around the corner, which can mean only one thing. The smack talk is about to embrace us all!

This year sees the 2nd annual running of the event expand to a full 16 teams to be held in the windy capital. Teams are made up of 4 players, each of whom use a different WHFB army. This year I will be taking another team along to cement my mid field tendencies! Last year My team came 5th overall and I managed to score top battlepoints for the entire event. 

This time Team PlasticKrak is made up of a wide array of players, from wiry old timers who cant finish games, newbies who havn't rolled a dice in a tournament, and malevolent individuals who would throw their mother under a bus if it scored them an extra victory point!

All your trophies belong to me!

The field is made up of a range of people from all walks of life, and we have even aloud people from Christchurch to attend. Even the Aussies from across the ditch have got in on the act, with several seeing the light and embracing playing proper Warhammer, leaving all that ridiculous peer comp garbage behind them (no doubt when the loose, they will blame it on comp and not being touchy feely enough to use a Australian "expert" panel judging...) 

Our Krak team will be ready for all comers this year. We bring to the field filth never seen before in the competitive field, constituting Dwarfs, High Elves, Wood Elves and Bretonnians. A masterful combination sure to amaze based on our shock and awe tactics of presenting a combination that nobody knows what the hell is going on with!

Final lists are to be submitted this week which will surely mean that we will all get to preview all the lame ducks everyone else will be bringing.

We live in interesting times...


  1. Another wood elf player.......excellent

  2. Your plans are foiled! I have done some snooping and can reveal your Wood Elf "hammer" list that will 20-0 all that it comes across!

    Highborn on Forest dragon
    lvl1 with rubyring
    30 Eternal Guard
    (archers and dryads)
    2 Treeman

    Pure F.I.L.T.H.

    Almost an argument in itself to introduce peer review comp to remove the edges from lists like that!

    1. once again Joel has foiled our mighty plans. Luckily we have a few days to go back to the drawing board and introduce the much reviled fluff into the armies.

      We must all make some sacrifice if we are to keep the deranged machinations of peer comp from our shores!

    1. After considerable thought based on Petes profound deliberations of our team composition, We have decided to alter our makeup somewhat...

      We will henceforth be dropping High Elves and replacing it with Tomb Kings. Luckily I already have a fully painted army to use in this 11th hour change.

      Thanks for the heads up Pete. I'll see you from the top of the podium!
