Ok so day one is done and dusted, wish I could say I had a better day of gaming than I did lol but it was fun :D
The event has been fantastic so far really nice bunch of guys,
The venue is good games in Canberra and I have to say the venue is great,
The thing I did not expect is the amount of free booze, Roy the TO's job apart from running the event is to make sure everyone has a drink in there hands at all times :D
Ok now onto some games.
This was my list I have taken to the event

Adam Simpson - Daemons of Chaos - Comp 12.1
Bloodthirster, exhalted gift, lesser gift 500
Herald of Nurgle, Greater Locus of Fecundity, lesser gift, BSB 185
Herald of Nurgle, Greater Locus of Fecundity 135
20 Plague Bearers, full command, gleaming pennant 295
20 Plague Bearers, full command, lichebone pennant 305
3 Beasts of Nurgle 180
5 Chaos Furies, mark of khorne 70
5 Chaos Furies, mark of khorne 70
3 Bloodcrushers of Khorne, musician, standard, banner of eternal flame 225
5 Flesh Hounds of Khorne 150
5 Flesh Hounds of Khorne 150
Skull Cannon of Khorne 135
Total 2400
Comp 12.1

Game one was against Nick Hoen's Lizardmen Army

Slaan, focus of mystery, BSB, standard of discipline, dragonbane gem 380
Oldblood, coldone, light armour, great weapon, charmed shield, dawnstone 215
Scar veteran, coldone, shield, dragonhelm, other tricksters shard, luckstone, sword of might 154
skink priest, lore of heavens, dispel scroll 90
skink chief, light armour, obsidian amulet, warrior bane, enchante shield 82
10 Skink Skirmishers, javelin, shield 70
10 Skink Skirmishers, javelin, shield 70
24 Skinks, full command, 3 kroxigor 300
10 Skinks, musician 60
16 skinks, musician, champion 100
3 Terradon Riders, Fireleech Bolas 108
23 Temple Guard, full command, Jaguar Standard 402
5 Chameleon Skinks 65
6 Cold One Riders, musician, standard bearer, spears 224
1 Salamander Hunting Pack 80
Total 2400
Comp: 13.9

On paper this is a tough match up for my demons and he also has an extra 380 BP for comp before the game starts, games went the way I thought it would thirster got unlucky and failed a charge against temple guard and then got poisoned to death by lots of skinks. Games ended with a 18-2 win to nick

Game 2 was against Rhys Mcglinn

Daemon Prince of Nurgle, Mark of Nurgle, Chaos Armour, Flight, sword of striking, charmed shield, dragonbane gem, scaled skin, soul feeder 360
Exalted Hero, Mark of Khorne, BSB, Deamonic mount, enchanted shield, talisman of preservation 230
Sorceror, level 2, lore of metal, dispel scroll, dragonhelm 180
15 Chaos warriors, mark of khorne, halberds, shields, musician, standard, banner of swiftness 335
15 Chaos warriors, mark of nurgle, great weapons, musician, standard, banner of eternal flame 315
5 Chaos Warhounds, Vanguard 40
5 Chaos Warhounds, Vanguard 40
5 Hellstriders of Slaanesh, Musician 105
5 Hellstriders of Slaanesh, Musician 105
6 Chaos Trolls 210
Chaos Giant, Mark of Nurgle 215
3 Skullcrushers, Ensorcelled Weapons, Full command 264
Comp 12.0
Total 2400

This was a much better match up for me was a very close game, thirster got tied down by the trolls for most of the game his demon Prince spent the game killing some plague bearers in the end we both didn't have to much left only round 3 units each in the end including generals game was a small win to Rhys with a 11-9 in his favour

Games Three (1st of the army swapping rounds)

So this round was army swap where each persons is randomly given another players army for the round to use, my opponent was Sam Morre,
I was given this empire list

5 Demigryph knights, musician 300
28 Flagellents 336
Great cannon 120
Hellblaster volley gun 120
Total 2397
Comp 13.0

Seems like a solid list but sam was given probably one of the worst match ups for this empire list which was this bretonnian list

3 Pegasus Knights, Champion 165
6 Grail Knights, Standard, Banner of Eternal Flame 258

Comp 13.8
Total 2399

Lets just say the bretonnian had a very good day against the empire with the 5+ ward save on the whole army along with a 2+ armour this was a big struggle for the empire and the result showed 20-0 to Sam

I think this is the most interesting analysis posted over at wargamerau. Your army actually came in 5th place! The army swap just slayed you. Which armies did you play with in the end for rounds 3/4?

What was this army swap stuff?

Was that just a fun thing to opt into at Masters?

otherwise doesn't seem very mastery thing to do....

and I know I'd never let a stranger play with my models...

It is exactly what it sounds like. You take someone else's army for the round. Supposed to be more a of a generalship test. Also a kind of enforced comp... "you may have to play against your own list at some stage... so don't be a jerk", clause.

We toyed with it for ultimates when we were conceptualising... however your exact response is the reason we didn't do it.

It has always been a part of WHFB masters though (from memory). You kind of just have to suck it up if you want to play.

Yeh it was very interesting I would personally only want one round of army swap but it was a test of generalship that's for sure,
unfortunately I drew the short end of the stick both rounds of army swap lol
Also as Aaron was saying I can't understand why people wouldn't want anyone else playing with there models mine did come back with a couple of chips on them but what can you do
