I'm pretty happy with him (though I'll probably lighten the grass on the arms) and next up I have a squad of Immortals. SWAMP.

Game I v. Steve's Space Wolves (Razorburn variety)
Turn 2 I destroyed a Razorback with Living Lightning and another one of the Razorbacks immobilized itself going over the wreckage. He sped one of his Razorbacks to block off my forces here, but I wrecked it with a Chainfist in my next Assault phase. My Lord foolishly charged over the hill into the waiting guns and ate it, but my other squad of Juggernauts got into his lines, killing another Razorback and tying up a whole bunch of other stuff. His Thunderwolves get into my Blood Claws in an epic battle on top of the hill. My unit is Fearless and he doesn't roll great so I hold them there for over four Assault phases, including when it was down to just the Lord v. my Wolf Priest and I passed 3/3 invulnerables. That combat along with my Juggernauts holding up so much stuff up meant that at the bottom of 5 I was holding a 3-2 objective lead. Game over. Bad luck for Steve.
Didn't get a ton of pics of this game. Seize Ground (3). His army had Coteaz, 10-man Strike squad, Terminators in a Land Raider Redeemer, 3 Acolytes in a Stormraven, DCAs+Crusaders in a Stormraven, and two Psyflemen. Quick rundown of this game. I won the battle on the ground due to a bunch of good luck, but could never knock down either Stormraven despite multiple penetrating hits. This meant my opponent easily contested two objectives and held one for the win. Highlights included my Power Fist armed Juggernaut rider destroying the Land Raider during a Death or Glory attack, two wounded Juggernauts charging the full Strike Squad w/ Coteaz then beating them and escorting them off the board.
The fourth objective was on the far right flank and neither of us held it. This meant it came down to this one. A single scoring Cryptek who passed his Everliving roll, my Juggernaut 3.5" away. Necron win, 2-1.
Turn 2 saw my Juggernauts charge into and wipe out the Gargoyle swarm. They ate a bunch of Impaler Cannon shots and then started munching Hive Guard. My Grey Hunter units each got good rapid firing shots on Genestealer units, one of which was out of Synapse, and broke.
The third Genestealer squad got mixed in with my Blood Claws and Lord. The Trygon tries to charge in to save them, but the Lord slaughters him behind a series of good die rolls.
The last of the Blood Claws and Juggernauts slaughter the last of the Tyranids. Killed em' all.
So overall it was a great tournament. I really liked the mission set-up (maybe one Capture and Control next time) and how the Sports and Painting was done (everyone ranks three best). Speaking of painting, turns out my army choice was a good one, because I won 'Maestro' (Best Painted). Apparently the judge votes were at a dead lock between my army and another, but the player vote was overwhelmingly in my favor! Thanks so much to all the players who voted for my army, I really wasn't expecting the honor with how many great armies were there.
