I've got a challenge game against Lawrence tonight and I feel good about it and dread it at the same time.
You see, Lawrence posted a list on Bolter and Chainsword forums and hinted on Deep Space that I could find it. Which I did after two minutes of googling. As I read it I formulated plans of what I could do to deal with it.
However, the thought crossed my mind that this is exactly what he wants me to do. After all, I've done the bait and switch in the past. But Lawrence doesn't strike me as sneaky, he's more open in my experience. So what to do?
I decided to come up with a plan that should be flexible enough to deal with his army or variations thereof. Its a nice list based on the models I have available, but unlike Lawrence I'll keep it close to my vest until after the game. Still, I feel this list has potential.
The dread comes from the fact that Lawrence fields a strong marine-heavy list, with nasty librarian(s) that will ruin my day every chance they get. And he's experienced with that army enough to know what he's doing.
If I were a betting man, my money would be on Lawrence this round.
