OK, it's tomorrow. Looking at your armies, painting, hobby, the missions and the opposition what are your goals or predictions for Ultimates 40K?

This is my second Ultimates, last year was my first. My goals are simply to beat or equal last years results. I won The Ultimates Sportsman award and I hope to also take it out this year :D. I stunned myself by coming 8th in Generalship last year. If I beat that I will be stunned as the opposition is so freaking strong, so my ambition is to finish higher than my ranking (I'm 14th place qualifier!). My biggest wish is to improve on both my Hobby and Painting scores. Last years hobby score was a massive 1 point!!! I have a Display Board, Objective Markers as well as other bits of hobby materiel so should beat that. My painting was 17 points last year, I've tried hard to beat that but I'm nowhere near the top painters here, so anything over 17 will be great.

Anyone else care to share? Any predictions for each category?

For me I'm predicting
Overall - Matt/Aaron/Mike
General - Matt/Aaron/Mike
Painting - pick one of about 8 but at present, without seeing them in the flesh it's Olly
Sports - pick one of about 8 also (it's easier to say who won't be competing for this :wink:) but I really hope I retain this :lol:

I'd be happy to win three games total. I've made it my goal to win half my games in each tournament i've been to this year.

Other than that, this is the first time i'll be taking an army that doesn't include any non-painted or basecoat only models. Mostly, i'm just happy to be there.

Predictions are always a bit of fun :D

I feel like I'm in a position to claim No1 spot for Generalship with all the Chaos Marine *cough* Bloodbowl*cough* Ork practice I've been getting of late.

Especially since I have a finely honed brand new list whose variation has won lost every game of five.

Yep, in the bag. :wink:

...

Real predictions:
Overall: 1. Matt, 2. Aaron, 3. Mike
Painting: Not sure... I feel Olly, Aaron, Troy and Mike all deserve mentions here.
Generalship: 1. Matt, 2. Aaron, 3. Christian

Goals: A favourable win / draw / loss ratio.

This year I'm not actually aiming for number 1 for Generalship since right or wrong in my opinion it would have required an army list change I didn't want to make. Actually two different army list changes come to think of it :D

I am hoping for top 5, which means I can have a much more relaxed weekend than usual.

And this year, I'm also hoping for a good hobby score with one Big Presentation. We'll see how it goes!

Painting is up for nearly anyone

Sportmanship depends on the dice gods!!!

And just for Chunks.......

My goal tomorrow is to not trip over... you'll see what I mean soon enough!

But seriously:
Win at least one game
Get a decent score hobby and painting
Have beers with a bunch of good blokes and play great games - win or lose.

That said none of these mean I have come along without at least the remote hope to smash face on the battlefield and in the paint judging - it wouldn't be any fun if everyone wasn't actually trying! Just saying I won't be upset if that doesn't happen. :)
