As a reminder, I am not the original author of the Defensive DP list. I have never tried to claim to be so, and have stated as such in the list's entry. It is, in fact, Stelek's list. I just scaled it up and made some minor tweaks to fit my preferences. However, I would be willing to bet that I'm far more experienced using the core list than he is (I've been playing it consistently ever since he released it). Does that give me ownership of the list? No. But I know how to use the army and wield it expertly. What I say usually isn't theoretical, its from experience. When I make assumptions about something, its based on experience from either A) My local gaming scene or B) The American national gaming scene. Most likely, I will assume that the missions for battles will be styled after Nova Open's mission pack, since they are the most balanced I've seen yet (and are spreading like wild-fire). They certainly have replaced my gaming club's rulebook missions.
With all that being said, I'm not a know-it-all player. I make mistakes like everyone else. Nor do you have to use any of the information you find here on Implausible Nature. It is here to provide you with a competitive perspective, with a goal to help you to learn to better use your Black Templars army, whether or not you use the advise given here. If you think I'm wrong about something, let me know. Discussion only helps those involved; provided everything remains respectful. So let the games begin! :D
Oh, on a side note: I'm pre-registered for Nova Open 2011. Once tickets are available for purchase, I'll be doing so, as well as making my travel/lodging arrangements. I hope to see some of you there! ;)
