Element Games Grand Slam Round 1 Predictions

So this weekend all 4 of us are attending the Element Games Grand Slam up at the Northwest Gaming Centre in Stockport. You can hear about our lists in a show we recorded talking about the event here. Just for a bit of fun I thought I would make some round 1 predictions. These will be based mostly off of the lists and not the players behind them. As there are a lot of people at the event that are new to the Age of Sigmar scene or that I haven’t seen playing before.

The lists can be found here.
