ThunderDome takes NOVA Open

Aaron Aleong won both the invitational and the open this year beating a host of the country's top players including Nick Navatni and Pajamapant's top daemon armies. I'm not sure what army Aaron played in the invitational but he was playing Champions of Fenris and Ravenwing in the Open. ThunderDome is a monster deathstar and it will probably become very popular. It is similar to my BikeStar but much stronger in melee dedicating the vast majority of the army to the deathstar. The hub of the army is the Ravenwing command squad as opposed to the White Scars. Ravenwing can do everything White Scars can do plus more for basically the same points plus they have scout without having to waste the points on a mediocre HQ. The army has little to no shooting. ThunderDome does have the Conclave as well so it's quite strong in the psychic phase as well.

Aaron's ThunderDome looked something like this:

DA Chaplain on bike
RW Command Squad on Bikes
DA Scouts
DA Tacs in Rhino
Wolf Guard Battle Leader on TWM
3x Iron Priests on TWM
Blood Claws in Rhino
Grey Hunters in Rhino
3x Biker Librarians (Conclave)
Rune Priest Biker

Congratulations to Aaron for a job very well done !
