As the title says it turns out my adjustments were actually pretty good. First match of the league (starting early as a few of us are away on holiday) tonight and I drew the short straw playing against Cyphers dreaded Irn Bru-esque Orks. With lists still to be finalised I can't go into too much detail but a few things of note would be; 2x Bladestorms on a doomed unit and only inflicting 2 wounds (Yay for my dice!), it was a very close game, from two 2000pt lists over 3000 victory points were scored, it would have been a draw if I could bloody roll a hit on the last turn! In the end Cypher won 7-6 but I claimed back some dignity on victory points. A very bloody battle and quite frankly one of the more fun ones I've had in a while.
A final note to all, Cypher's army may look mean but all he really wants is a hug!
