(English in italics)

El pasado finde semana tuve la oportunidad de participar en un torneo de Warhammer 40000Braine-Le-Comte en Belgica concretamente unos pocos kilómetros al sur de Bruselas. En el torneo reino el buen ambiente y las mesas estaban de lujo con muy buena escenografía. Aunque era el único extranjero la verdad me sentí como en casa.
The last weekend I had the opportunity to participate in a tournament of Warhammer 40000 in Braine-Le-Comte in Belgium, specifically few miles south of Brussels. In the tournament there was very good atmosphere and the tables were great with very good scenery. Although I was the only foreigner I really felt like at home. I want to thank the organization for these tournament.

El torneo era a 1500 puntos con unos escenarios especiales ideados por la ornganizacion. Me decidí a jugar con una lista de demonios forzándome a solo utilizar minis pintadas. La lista ne las siguientes lineas

Primera partida era a puntos de victoria constados a la antigua usanza. Me toco jugar contra Necrones de disparo. Como regla especial todo terreno difícil se consideraba peligroso, lo cual dificulto mi avance a través de cobertura. Aunque conseguí llegar al cuerpo a cuerpo con el gran demonio en su turno el usaba el monolito para destrabarse y volver a levantar los Necrones que habia matado. Ademas el único que podia hacer algo al monolito era mi Aplastaalmas pero quedo inmovilizado solo aparecer por los disparos de rifle Gaus. Asi que me pase gran pare de la partida corriendo mientras me fusilaban a disparos. Al final perdí por unos 800 pts.

First round game objective was a victory points count in old way. I had to play against a shooting army Necrons . As a special rule for this game all difficult terrain was considered also dangerous, difficulting my movement through coverage. Although I managed to reach the melee with the Great Daemon in Necron's turn they disengaged using the monolith and raising the Necrons that had been killed. The only one who could damaged the Monolite was my Soulgrinder but it is immobilized but only just when appearing. So the most part of the game i was running under a rain of fire from the Necron troops. I finally lost by 800 pts approximately.

Segunda Partida, me volvió a tocar contra Necrones pero esta vez eran Necrones de Cuerpo a Cuerpo con 3 unidades de 3 espectros y dos lideres Necron con una arma que anulaba cualquier tipo de salvación. En l primer turno los lideres destruyeron mi Aplastaalmas y después se monto una gran melé en el centro del campo de batalla donde los demonios fueron destrozados. quedando solo el Devorador de Almas vivo al final de la partida. La verdad los espectros con su iniciativa y fuerza destrozaron mis demonios antes de que estos pudieran responder y los lideres Necrones acabaron mi Príncipe Demonio. El devorador de Almas fue el único que hizo algo matando a un líder y dejando al otro con una sola herida (en realidad lo mate 2 veces). Otra vez no podía hacer nada contra el monolito que combinado con la movilidad de los espectros mis demonios parecían moverse a cámara lenta. La partida era a objetivos 5 en total si eran ocupado por lineas daban 5 puntos y el resto de unidades 3 el resultado fue 16 a 0 a favor de los Necrones.

Second part, I returned to play against Necrons, but this time it was Melee Necron Army with 3 units of 3 wraiths and two Necron leaders with a weapon that nullified any hope of salvation. In first round he destroyed my Soulgrinder in melee combat with the leaders afterthat there was a big messy melee in the center of the battlefield where the demons were destroyed. The only alive Daemon at the end of the game was the Bloodthirster. The wraiths with their high initiative smashed my demons before they could respond and the necron leaders ended up leading my Daemon Prince. The Bloodthister was the only one who did something killing a leader and leaving the other with a single wound (actually he killed him 2 times). Again I could not do anything against the monolith that combined with the mobility of the wraiths were so fat that is seems that my Daemons were moving at slow motion. The objective of the game was to capture 5 objectives. If they were captured by scoring troops they gave 5 points and the other units gave you 3. The end result was 16 to 0 in favor of the Necrons.

La ultima partida era con objetivos aleatorios a mi me toco eliminar todas las unidades de linea como objetivo primario y al contrario ocupar 2 cuartos del tablero. La mision era secreta hasta el turno 4. Mi contrincante llevaba un ejercito de Orcos con tres unidades de linea con 30 orcos cada, mas una unidad con 30 gretchins ademas 15 saqueadores 3 dreadnoughts y 3 kopteros. A la que me acercaba para cargar la cantidad de disparos de los orcos no era despreciable. Asi que concentre todo mi ejercito en un flanco bloqueando las lineas de disparo de gran parte de las unidades orcas. La verdad la partida no fue mal del todo aunque perdi un monton de demonios bajo la abrumadora cantidad de disparos y de ataques en Cuerpo a cuerpo el no tenia nada en Cuerpo a cuerpo que pudiera danar mi aplastalamas. Por mala suerte la partida se acabo demasiado pronto y no me dio tiempo de eliminar los 90 orcos y los 30 Gretchins, quizas un turno mas hubiera bastado. El tampoco consiguió ocupar 2 cuartos del tablero con lo que la partida acabo con empate.

In he last game the objetive was selected in my case I had to eliminate all lenemy troops as its and my enemy had to take 2 quarters of the board. The mission was secret until turn 4. My opponent had an army of Orcs with three troop units each one with 30 orcs, and a unit of 30 Gretchins, he also had 15 looters 3 dreadnoughts and 3 kopters. When I was approaching his army the number of shots of the orcs was not negligible. So I decided to focus all my army on one flank blocking the firing line of some the orc units .Actually game was not bad at all although I lost a lot of demons under the overwhelming amount of shooting and melee attacks he had nothing in the melee that could damage my Soulgrinder. Unlucky, the game finished too early and not giving me time to remove the 90 orcs and 30 Gretchins, maybe one more turn would have been sufficient. My opponnent also failed in holding 2 quarters of the board ending the game in a draw.
