ok, just had to get that off my chest.
Hello fine people,
Well, its been an eventful weekend, if you dont “like” my Facebook page, you wouldnt have seen my adventures at Winter Warfest, held at the Enoggera Bowls club here in Brisbane. It was the 3rd year this event had been run, and Michael Clarke and his other TO’s and sponsors did a superb job. There were around 30ish gamers at the event and being a liscenced venue, everyone had a great time, the tournie had a really good vibe. It was the last 5th ed tournie thats being held in Brisbane (to the best of my knowledge)
So go have a look at my FB page for some action shots of the 5 games I played. The Carchardons played well, and I was really happy with how they did on the tabletop. However, I do think I’ll incorporate a few minor improves, such as some long range fire power, which the lack of let me down on a few occasions.
So the results went like this
Game 1. Sharks V Dave Kerrs Blood Angels – Major Victory to Dave. Dave is a formidable opponent, and his painting skills are amazing too… It was fun playing a game with two very nicely presented armies on the table top.
Game 2. Sharks V Danny Whiteheads Salamanders – Major Victory to Me. Danny has a really well painted and themed Salamanders Army. He’s a very active member of the gaming community and makes a lot of contributions to WW40K and ADFWGA. Check them both out and support their events if you’re able to.
Game 3. Sharks V James Allans Space Wolves – Major Victory to Me. James is new to the hobby, and although I annihilated his army, he played with good spirit.
Game 4. Sharks V Pattycake Carters Necrons – Minor Victory to Pattycake. Patty Carter is a formidable opponent at the best of times, however even at half speed while suffering from a major hangover from the night before, his Necrons were a real handful. I’m sure if he was more compos mentis, he would have flogged the shit out of my Sharks.
Game 5. Sharks V Gareth Combes Necrons – Minor Victory to Me. Gareth was a great opponent and played well. He was a great opponent to have as my last one, great attitude and easy going.
Over all I placed 10th in the Tournament, with 137 point total. (1st was 162) But the award that I was really happy to get was Best Painted. Michael tells me that it was a by a landslide too. So thanks to everyone that voted. It was great to receive such a great compliment from other gamers.
The prize from Scibor, who by the way do some kick ass after market minis for 40k and parallel ranges to GW’s range of minis were these scenic bases. They have a lot of character and are extremely well cast
The second prize was a paint organisation rack from Miniature Scenery (CNC Workshop) Although I use a paint organiser already, I’ll still assemble this one as I’ve been a little curious as how it’ll work
So, thats it for me now.
Thanks for stopping in
