Numbers were down this year due to a clash with Expo. Normally we have between 8 and 10 players but this weekend saw us reduced to 7 - oh come on - what do you expect - this is probably the niche-est of niche wargaming event :)
On the Saturday we normally have a couple of 1 v 1 2000 point games but this time we started with a 7 player 1000 point Mad Max free-for-all game on an 8x6 desert-themed board. We had Orks (Mark), Space Marines (Angel Barracks' very own Michael), Eldar (Paul), Euro-Feds (Graham), Khazari (Gordon), Kratonians (Steve) and Pax Arcs (me) - Kiwi Dave later took over the Space Marines.
Here we see Paul - who had travelled all the way from Portsmouth - good on you mate - surveying the terrain and then ordering his Eldar to their doom at the hands of the Kraytonian Twins - 2 Pink Grav tanks that wouldn't die!
As we enjoyed playing this game we carried on playing it for the rest of the day - if you got wiped out then you returned with another 1000 points of whatever took your fancy - for instance Paul came back with his stairs-defying Daleks.
My Pax Arcs had a bad day, firstly being wiped out by Orks after taking out loads
The Pax Arcs seen here being taken in the rear by the Orks but managing to turn and take out hordes of Death Trucks
We then got taken out a for a second time by the Kraytonian Twins who in turn managed to destroy themselves due to fall-backs.
I'm not sure who got the most wipe-outs - I think it may have been Steve's Kraytonians.
Michael from Angel Barracks brought his 6mm Sci-Fi stock down including his new buildings - excellent stuff.
I will cover the Sunday games in the next post
