** Milford from the CoS **

Well I just refreshed my drink and decided to go with an old fashion for Group #7 a very tall old fashion.

Vamps VS Nurgle
This is going to be a very interesting qualifier. Iam not really sure which race has the upper hand in this one. Do legend Vamps negate legend killer bloaters? I quess that is why we will have to play the matches and see how it shakes out.

Top teams to make the finals
ImageGefaehrliche Raubtiere Solid Nurgle team here and tournament tested. They will go down swinging for the fences if they should fall short.

ImageCounts Von Count Is this some type of all star/legend get the band back together type of vamp team. It is just down right nasty.

Dark Horse team
ImageNew Vamps on the Blood Another one of these legend vamp teams, wow. Going to be a tough road though as they have to win 5 matches to take the qualifier against some top talent.

Milfords upset special

ImageGrin bay Soul Snackers Just got a gut feeling about these guys. They are not a loaded Legend vamp line up (they only have 4, :} ) but they are a very solid team and they just have that feel they could sneak up on the top teams and deliver a big surprise and take the qualifier

Winner of Group #7
It is very hard to go against the Count in this group but you never know. This qualifier is littered with great matches all the way through the finals. I will stick with my pick of the Count to win

Moving along now with a nice buzz feeling.

Qualifier #6
Lizardman VS Skaven
The lone Khemri team was in this group but alas has already been dispatched with haste. That is most likely a good thing since they were a total embarrassment to all of Khemri and the fans no longer have to witness their futility. They were not in the tournament long enough to turn into a national disgrace.

Top teams to make the finals

ImageRraawwattzzeewwaa These guys should be able to blow through to the finals for the climatic throw down against the ‘Malle squad.

ImageK” Chain’Malle This team is just too good to even describe beside disgusted that I don’t have a team like this. Always a top contender in any major.

Dark Horse team
ImageEspandon A nice solid lizard team. Another one of those teams that if the inducements work out for them against the top teams they have a chance, albeit in this qualifier it is a long shot.

Milfords upset special

ImageCubic This qualifier is no Bueno for skaven BUT if any skaven team in the field can some how manage to OTS the living daylights it would be Cubic. It will take a herculean effort to win this qualifier but they got a shot.

Winner of qualifier #6
Ah, well, it seems this group is so top loaded with two teams so I will flip the coin and go with K’Chain, why not. For all I know the team you cannot really say because their team name is written in a language no one knows how to speak will win it all.

I will break down the last of the qualifiers later tonight.

You guys can comment also. Milfords post are not just me pontificating into the wind they are better when a conversation happens.



Very Happy

Well, in that case I can inform you that the family of Lizardssons has a message to the so called "favourites" in qualifier 6. They may be the bigger saurus on the field, but we all know what happened to the bigger saurus in the past!

Been on the booze Milford? I'd take Grin Bay Soul Snackers all day long if I had to play as one of those vamp teams.

Long Haul Trucking took up residence at the Crumbling Sphinx Casino and Hotel located in scenic North Khemri, a short 2 hour drive away from the world famous Khemri strip. Seeing no matches on CABAL Vision the team decided to retire poolside to discuss our many upcoming charitable events over Pina Coldas. Upon arrival pool side we were disappointed to see no water in the pool. Fortunately we had an army Rotters to grind up that nicely filled the pool with the proper mixture of fluid and guts to allow everyone to enjoy. Management didn't seem to appreciate our kind gesture, but we had to split a bloater in half so the nurglings could go find a waiter, so I would call it even.

My three year (or maybe more, haven't checked) wait for a major where I don't have a game where I get utterly destroyed by dice continues. This one, I have to say, was a particularly fine specimen and will surely be enjoyed and appreciated by all true connoisseurs.

Malmir, you're an amazing coach ..in the Top 3 of Every bodies Top 3 list easily.

From an outsiders perspective, I consider you a Bash coach.
How this relates to me and what comes to my mind about dice rapes is that I always feel more strongly about getting horrible dice when I play races that don't fit naturally to my play-style tendencies.
Don't get me wrong ..you'll play any race as good or better than anyone else and build pimped out teams while you're doing it..
The thing is, doesn't it all come down to how much fun you're having while you're playing? More importantly, while you are in a Tourney!!!?
I am not a fan of you going into Bash mode, because I love my Elf teams ..you have more fun in the games I have played you and spectated, where you played a bash team.

..for what it's worth

Sounds like good advice Smile Maybe I'll just make an utter bash team in box and see where that goes.

After a week the pool has congealed nicely into a gelatinous mass of organs, bile, and fluids, perfect for enjoyment by nurglings and beasts alike. Our pool upgrades have caused some distress with the hotel management, but a recent plauge of flies has limited the visibility of Mr."Hey, You're Destroying My Hotel!" guy.

I will say the flies here in Khemri are something to behold, you see them scattered about in the souqs down on the strip, but you get them all together in one place and magical things happen. I saw one fly carry away a nurgling pustule that had just popped from below the surface of our pool, I was so proud I had to shed a tear.

With our buzzing black shroud protecting us from the harsh Khemri sun we will contiune to watch CABAL Vision until we have a match, or if we don't have a match stay here. That works well for us, as we are in no hurry to go home, heck this might be home.

I have always loved these threads during Major Tournaments!
I guess we arent doing a scoring system for picks of each round, which is understandably time consuming for whoever is keeping track.
However, I still like to throw my hat in and try to pick the winners ..I especially like being able to pick out underdog teams and/or coaches.

Qualifier 1
Dark Elves 16
Humans 3
Goblins 1

The bottom half of this Quali is where I think the best teams are, now that Malmir's team has been knocked off (**Upset of the Tourney, if you ask me*)
It will come down to the winner of MeetYourMaker - DE and Moon Assassins walking through the finals.
My Pick --> MeetYourMaker - DE

Qualifier 2
Dwarves 12
Undead 3
Pact 2

Dorfs bore me and they have dominated this bracket easily. A pact team is in the Hunt but their DE is more suited to be a force vs Elf teams ..no unforlorning this Major for Pact. Although there is a 5ag Runner and a 5st Blitzer, Travelling Clinic will be packing their bags and going back to the drawing board to get more skills as Emphasy's BB Small Men punch their ticket to the main draw.
My Pick --> BB Small Men

Qualifier 3
Chaos 11
Amazons 4
Norse 1

No real use looking past the matchup between Cult of Shadows and Excellence of Execustion! These teams have played one match previously, where BattleLore walked away with a 2-1 win in a slugfest of 9 combined Cas in 93 blocks.
I see this being a pretty similar game to their last one
except Nach will get his revenge and move into the main draw.
My Pick --> Cult of Shadows

Qualifier 4
Chaos Dwarves 10
Slann 4
Elven Union 2

This is a tricky Quali to call but I am leaning towards the Slann, since the CD teams dont have that special of Ball Carriers, which they will need desperately.
Although Panchi frogs has a 4-0 record vs CD in the Box, they are 0-2-1 vs Slann ..the Air Kings will leap to victory in the top half of the bracket and will outpace any of the teams from the bottom half to move on to the main draw.
My Pick --> Air Kings

Qualifier 5
High Elves 10
Orcs 5
Halflings 1

It is good to see a bunch of HE and too bad they drew Orcs in their Quali.
I see mrt1212's Coca Loca BBL's just falling short after having to fight through Rictor's BierzOrk's and limp into a game vs Cheins Noirs Elf Eaters.
My Pick --> Cheins Noir

Qualifier 6
Lizards 10
Skaven 7
Khemri 1

From what I have noticed lately in Majors ..You gotta get through Lizards to stand a chance of winning it all. This Quali is a good example of why!
The wildcard factor here is that there are Skaven in the bracket ..a very tricky race for Lizards.
By the end of the Quali finals, experience will reign as Rraavvaattzzeewwaa take on K''Chain Che'Malle in a game for the ages, to make it to the main draw.
My Pick --> Rraavvaattzzeewwaa

Qualifier 7
Vampires 10
Nurgle 8

Upset, Upset Again and an Upset in the finals!!
Not sure I have seen as many stats on a team, which just makes the players that much better on the pitch ..but throw them on Vampires and there are too many things to manage when you face them on the Pitch ..anything can happen!
I predict Relezite's stat freak Vamps lose in the Semi's (for the second biggest upset of the tourney) while Sigmar1's Nocturnal Nibblers gaze their way into the finals and onto the main draw.
My Pick --> Nocturnal Nibblers

Qualifier 8
Necro 9
Wood Elves 9

Wood Elves are usually too much for Necro but they take a beating while walking with the win, historically..
I think that will be the case for the top half Semi, while I see a different story in the bottom half as Nekross's Regenesis Seed dominate the bottom half and walk into the Quali final's facing Dhaktokh's Stage and Glory team that could be left with pretty much just Strindburgaren and a bunch of loners.
My Pick --> Regenesis Seed

Hey guys, you may or may not have noticed but the Crown of Sand main event is well underway. Infact we are looking at the semi finals to be played right now.

The first match is
MikiRuni81's Woodelves El Cortijillo (what ever that means)

vs

Rictor's Orcs BierZork's (whoever that BierZork is whose team it is. Hope it is not plural, illiterate Orcs are such a cliché).

El Cortijillo is just a beatiful team. They are Woodelves! So nice. Just the best race no matter how you look at it. Best looking, most graceful plays, courage and best looking. We all love Woodelves. They even have an adorable natural oneturner, a St4AG5 statfreak and more luck than a four-leaf clover plantation. They also won against me, proving their brilliancy.
I would award them the trophy right away if I was in charge but meh, they can win it by playing too.

The BierZork's come with a full house with guard and MB plus some tackle and dp. So they are well prepared to play Elves in theory, but we all know they will lose. They are Orcs. Pfft. Someone spraypainted 'Orcs go home' on their donkey cart and they are stupid enough they would follow that advise if only they could read.


The other semi final is between

Bazakastine's Lizardmen K''Chain Che'Malle

and

BattleLore's Chaos Excellence of Execution!

TV 2900 vs 2700, +ST monsters, claws, tentacles, MB aplenty and all kinds of terror, horror and bashiness all around. Funny how Baza's Krox is suffering from an inferiority complex, because the Saurus make him look like a sad wuss.
I will happily watch these titanic teams clash into each other in what will hopefully be spray cloud of blood and rendered limbs and dead bodies - but knowing major tourney BB games, it will probably be a letdown with only regened mngs and KOs.
Doesn't matter, the winner loses to the woodies in the finals anyway.

Please coaches, let us know your times. And don't take me too serious. Wink
You others, see you in the spec ranks!
