I want to start by saying that. I'm not being funny or gloating. There was nothing to gloat about today. I thought this list would be fun and get some laughs but it resulted in neither. On top of that, it just sucked battle points from people and generated a lot of ties. So, because of that I wholeheartedly apologize to anyone that I played and anyone that has ever had to play against anyone with a list like this.
A while back goatboy or someone on BoLs wrote about the responsibility you have to provide a fun game to your opponent. I did not do that today. Thunderpunch was funny and cute on paper, to me, but on the table it just generated a lot of *sigh*. The only saving grace I had was that I know I'm a laid back fun player and understood I was basically playing a total douche list within 2 turns of playing this list. I really tried to make up for the list, but in the end I know I was the WAAC kid there and I feel like shit about it.
So Thunderpuch (I don't even find that name funny anymore) is officially shelved. Never again will it see play. I was going to do a write up in detail but there is nothing to be proud about with this list, so I'll just give the short; Tau- killed everything but a hammerhead. Necrons- killed everything but a lord and douche canoe. Necron- killed everything. I still only finished 5/15 because I didn't have any scoring troops and all I did was cause those players to get knocked out of any hope of winning (and the first necron player, Alex, is a great player with an awesome attitude that usually saw at least top three).
Now I ask, what have I learned? Think about your list. Even if it's fun for you, think hard about your list. You have every right to play some super-tuned list but is that really the kind of person you are? I know I'm not the kid that brings 16 thunder wolves to a beer-and-pretzels kind of store, but today I was, and its easily the worst I've ever felt after a tourny and a pretty dark day in my 15 year 40k life. But I learned something....
....And in the words of a true space wolf; I recognize my failing and will be sure to correct it.
