Castle Assault 2015 is set to be a huge event this year with 24 players registering their Armies last night at midnight. The variety of Army lists this year is amazing, with everything from Codex Astartes, Tyranids, Imperial Guard, Chaos, Eldar, Necrons, Dark Eldar, Tau and even Squats!
Heavy Bolter has come and gone with 13 players battling it out for the title of Supreme Commander this year. Once the dust had settled and the skulls tallied, Jim XII’s Tyranid swarm had consumed all comers taking the top spot with a total of 64 points. The overall tournament rankings for Heavy Bolter were an aggregate value taking into account total points destroyed, total points lost, number of victory conditions secured and battles won.
The tournament featured 11 different lists across the 13 players with lists ranging from EpicUK Tyranids, Necrons, Codex Marines to Vraksian Renegades, Steel Legion and Iyanden Craftworld Eldar to name a few. Players participating all agreed that Heavy Bolter was a success and another great event in the Australian Net Epic Armageddon calendar with many committing to the next Heavy Bolter in 2016.
