Last Weekend’s Event

Welcome back to another UTC event recap. There’s a ton of events to get through this week, so let’s just dive in.

March YHP Alexandria Warhammer 40K RTT

First up, we have an RTT out of VA. Stephen Davis won the event with a pretty typical T’au good stuff list. It’ll be interesting to see how this army shifts when the new book releases with the changes to crisis suits that were mentioned on Warhammer Community. At the very least we should hopefully see less cyclic ion blasters.

  • Stephen Davis (Terran Battle Friends) – T’au
  • Daniel Bradcovich (Terran Battle Friends) – Adepta Sororitas
  • Ryan (Brynjar) Hendricks (Terran Battle Friends) – Adeptus Custodes


Tables and Towers March RTT

Staying in the DMV, we have another RTT, this time out of Maryland. Mathew Burgoon took the event with their Aeldari. This list is mostly more of the same with the exception of a big brick of Windriders led by a Farseer Skyrunner. Turns out all of these can take a shuriken cannon and can have full rerolls pretty easily. Cool, good, more elf tech.

  • Mathew Burgoon (Cobra Lounge) – Aeldari
  • Matt Lorah (Vanguard Tactics) – Aeldari
  • Steven Kimbell (Legion of Extraordinary Gentlemen) – Death Guard


Gem Wargaming RTT March 2024

Another T’au win, this time coming from Austin Johnson in Ohio. The list features six Devilfish full of breachers and three Hammerheads (one of which is Longstrike). This list rules, no way around it. Fish of Fury may indeed be back folks.

  • Austin Johnson (Gem Wargaming) – T’au
  • Conan Jennings (Gem Wargaming) – Black Templars
  • Greg Burnett (Arch City Garrison) – Chaos Knights

Going up to the great white north, we have a 40k GT. Taking the day was Ryan Bell’s World Eaters. The list is actually very similar to what we were seeing before the balance pass; Berserker Glaive MoE, Favored of Khorne, plenty of Eightbound, and of course Angron. 

  • Ryan Bell (GTA40k) – World Eaters
  • Cody Brown (Stud or Scrub) – Adepta Sororitas
  • Zachery Riegling (Bloodbath and Beyond) – Adepta Sororitas


2403 Peterborough Open – 40k Singles

(Peterborough, ON)

Still up in Canada we have another 40k RTT. Kurtis Stclair won the event with their Custodes, taking a pretty typical list consisting of guard, wardens, and terminators. Congrats Kurtis!

  • Kurtis Stclair (D7) – Adeptus Custodes
  • Jordan Hovey (Mid Table Terrors) – T’au
  • Trevor Kidd – Death Guard

Coming back down to America for a change of pace we have an AoS RTT out of New York. Boris Poletaev’s Nighthaunt took the event with their Nighthaunt Scarlet Doom list. The list is pretty straightforward, with 60 Bladegheist Revenants looking to apply mortal wounds directly to your forehead. 

  • Boris Poletaev (Brooklyn Strategist) – Nighthaunt
  • Garred Whalen (Team FacePlant) – Nighthaunt
  • Chai Tzola (NYC Warhammer) – Blades of Khorne


Warhammer 40k March RTT

(Coraopolis, PA)

Lenoon’s Imperial Knights

Back over to 40k, we have an RTT out of Pennsylvania. Imperial Knights took the day with Marcus Kehoe at the helm. The list is an Armiger heavy one, with a Knight Errant and Canis Rex supporting them.

  • Marcus Kehoe (Da Kheeke klappas) – Imperial Knights
  • Alan Whitacre (Steel City Legion) – Necrons
  • Jimmy Stoker (Average Bros) – Death Guard


Rubicon II

Yet another 40k RTT, this time coming from Florida. Mike Muzeni’s Thousand Sons took the event. The list is pretty interesting in that while it has the standard array of characters, it features two Mutaliths and 3×3 Tzaangor Enlightened units. This makes sense with the lethality of the Mutalith and the great utility of the Enlightened backing up the Rubrics doing their thing can spell trouble for a lot of armies.

  • Mike Muzeni (TLM DGN) – Thousand Sons
  • Jon Dismuke (Team Warpfire) – Tyranids
  • Jon Sweet (Tampa Bay Corsairs) – Chaos Daemons


HFX Games: Winter War

Surprise! It’s another 40k RTT. This time back up in Canada, with Paul Levesque winning the event. Paul took another pretty typical Custodes list, this time going heavy on the guard and Allarus and passing up the Wardens. 

  • Paul Levesque (Northern Front) – Adeptus Custodes
  • Blair Macdonald (Big Dice Energy!) – Chaos Knights
  • Glenn Duncan (Northern Front) – Leagues of Votann


Dice Boys – Tournament Circuit – KnoWhere

One last 40k RTT out of Florida again. Another Thousand Sons win with a list featuring double Mutaliths and some Tzaangors piloted by Diego Gutierrez. Seems like despite us marking them as losers in the last balance pass, Thousand Sons are still able to hang.  

  • Diego Gutierrez (Death By Gaming) – Thousand Sons
  • Jaime Pineda – World Eaters
  • Hendrik Alvarez (Dice Boys) – Black Templars


Circle City Championship Series – March

Remember when I said there was one last 40k RTT? I lied. Robert Chandler’s Aeldari won the event. The list is pretty in line with what we’ve been seeing. Avatar of Khaine, Aspect Warriors, and some Fire Prisms are neat I guess.

  • Robert Chandler (Scions of War) – Aeldari
  • Jason Temple (Scions of War) – Adeptus Custodes
  • Eric Anglin (Scions of War) – Ultramarines
