I am a hardcore tournament player who has played in Rogue Trader Tournaments from Salem, Oregon, down to San Francisco, Sacramento, Los Angeles and San Diego, California. I have also played in Jacksonville, Orlando and Tampa, Florida. Right now I am playing and living in Phoenix AZ, but the tournament scene is rather dead for a city of this size, so I might need to join a league.
I try to attend as many large tournaments as I can. Although the GW Grand Tournaments get a bad rap, I enjoy them, and my goal is to win a GT one day. Also I attended Adepticon in Chicago every year and if you are a fan of 40k, this is a must because there is no other event quite like it.
Here I am again with a few weeks before a couple of tournaments still waffling between two armies.
I am always struck with indecision before GTs and this paralysis is one of the reasons why I suffer with poor paint scores because I am still deciding which army to play up until nearly the last moment.
So I am down to 2 choices: Demonhunters or Space Wolves.
If you win a GT level event with pure Demonhunters, everyone is impressed.
No one plays against Demonhunters, and don't know what to expect.
Lots of unique units/tricks
I like playing armies no one plays
Better comp/sports scores? (If applicable)
Great looking models
Way, way, way over priced
Loose some of the prestige of winning if you rely on allies.
In a mech environment, poor anti-tank
Space Wolves Pros:
One of the best codexes out there.
Lots of good units to choose from.
Cool looking models.
Be one of half of the tournament field playing Space Wolves.
Another MEQ army
If you win, it will because of the army you play.
So my question is: Should I play Demonhunters or Space Wolves?
