Welcome back!  Sorry for the lack of posts recently, I’ve been playing a ton of Call of Duty: Black Ops 2 lately and have had a tough time tearing myself away long enough to write anything worth reading.  On that note, I have noticed some striking similarities between 40k and Call of Duty that I may have to devote a separate article to. If, you know, I can stop playing long enough to write it.

In the meantime, the Da Boyz GT has come and gone.  This year, the Da Boyz GT featured no comp scoring.  That’s unusual for the event, which is notorious for its comp scores.  I believe going to no-comp was the right call, given the relative infancy of 6th edition.  The TOs were proven correct when despite the lack of comp scores, a wide variety of lists showed up on the top tables.  The top 10 overall finishers included: GK/IG, Daemons, Eldar/Tau, Chaos Space Marines, Eldar, IG, Tyranids, and Necrons.  When the dust settled, Andrew Gonyo had pulled down yet another 6th edition GT win with a Grey Knight/IG army.  Today we’ve got the army lists of the Da Boyz GT 2012 Best Overall winner Andrew Gonyo and 2nd Overall / Best General Ben Mohile for your viewing pleasure.  Enjoy!

In today’s episode of Law Reviews we’re continuing our coverage of last weekend’s Battle For Salvation 2012 GT in New York.  Today we’re pleased to bring you the army lists of Gold Bracket runner-up Matt DeFranza, Silver Bracket winner (and Nova Open TO) Mike Brandt, and Silver Bracket runner-up Alex Fennel (whom you may remember from our NOVA 2012 review – Alex also scored 2nd place in the NOVA invitational with a similar list).  As you’re reading through the lists and our notes, keep in mind a couple of themes – durable scoring units and mobility – that are present in each of these lists.  We’ll close this article with comments on why durable scoring units and mobility are key to success in 6th, and hopefully as you’re reading you’ll see why these 3 lists (along with Andrew Gonyo’s winning list from our last episode) are fantastic evidence in support of our argument.

The long Columbus Day weekend meant there were a number of big 40k tournaments going on all over the country, and one of the biggest this weekend was the Battle For Salvation in New York.  This event saw a number of top players and great lists competing for best general, and the winning list may come as quite a surprise to that portion of the 40k blogosphere claiming mech is dead in 6th.  Andrew Gonyo claimed first place with his Grey Knights w/ IG allies list, knocking out Tony Kopach and Matt DeFranza on his way to the gold.  We’ve got Andrew’s winning GK/IG list for your viewing pleasure.
