Gday guys So I took CHA to Burn City Brawl over the weekend and was lucky enough to get the win. BCB was a 40 player event, 5 rounds over 2 days. Missions were: Transmission matrix Acquisition Unmasking Quadrant control Annihilation So my standard list was as follows which I took to four of the five missions (unmasking subbed out for extra specialists but was really similar) [=14]https://assets.infinitythegame.net/infinityarmy/img/logos/logo_302.svg[/imglogoarmy] The Woad Warriors ────────────────────────────────────────────────── GROUP 1 8 2 1 HIGHLANDER GREY AP HMG, Smoke Grenades / Pistol, CCW.

(0 | 32) 5 SWC | 300 Points Open in Infinity Army So a few things about the weekend I really want to touch on. 1. There's been a trend of late to some pretty drastic hyperbole when it comes to new armies and their strength (Oss,vird,Tak and dashat are the ones that spring to mind) When I decided on CHA, I did so mainly because they were painted... But there was a competitive motivation to it too. With all the new armies in the spotlight people were very aware and ready to deal with them. But so many of the other armies are just as effective but without players ready to respond to them in the same way. Going Into the event I had planned how I was going to handle the current meta hotness and I'm sure other players had too. 2. Coordinating effective offensive units: Almost no one saw it coming, and I think in this day of superior aro fireteams it's something worth considering. The Wallace coord order with the three long range guns got work done in every game. The thing I see is people don't like the chance of losing one of their models,which is likely when you coordinate. You commonly lose the model they ftf but you remove the threat too. The thing is, it's worth it. In two of my games I removed Linked bolt snipers and whilst I risked losing one in ftf I just needed the link bonuses dropped and I didn't want to waste orders mucking around. The ability with. Lord orders to just trade so your close units can effectively and quickly move is worth losing a model, which out of all my games only happened once. There's plenty of armies that do it with even less risk. Coordinating 4 daylami panzerfaust is absolutely worth doing against the superior aros out there. Don't forget you can't split burst in Aro, which means you are pushing lots of normal rolls. 3.CHA more than the last few armies I have played seemed to be more vulnerable to failing the LT roll. For example in zone missions I found it much easier getting deployment and going second. With lots of cheap models it's easy when you go first to have an opponent just outpoint you particularly with camo. I was lucky enough on day one to win the LT rolls which definitely felt way more comfortable than day two where I failed both. 4. CHA feels way better than I expected not going first. Alot of that could be how I wrote my list. 5. Spiral is such a great army, that I don't hear many people talking about. They are so great at influencing how you deploy. Any questions about the event let me know !
