Even on our national holiday, the tabletop generals assembled in the clubhouse for another evening of frantic gaming.
And it must be said, for the first time since I came back, fantasy and sci-fi had a clear overhand on the historical department.
Though this has to do with the new 40k, as no less then 3 battles where fought, one of 500 points which saw my Nemesis go down to Tau (oooooooh snif) with his Plaguemarines.
The second one was a none game that had a collection of 7 Battlesuits (I don`t even know what the big one is, it`s from after my time, but it`s apparently named a Riptide) decimate a force of Eldar in two turns.
The third saw a force of Orks scrape a victory on points to a massive guard force. Both these two battles where 1.000 points btw.
I was there to observe this, and lesson learned: Quad Heavy Bolters, period, against all those shooty grunt armies around. And Sicarans.
French and British forces duked it out in Song of Drums and Shako's.
Another battle I have been following was this Dux Britanniarum game, as I`ll be joining in a campaign starting soonish (but I`ll handle that in a blogpost later today or early tomorrow).
The Heroquest game was played as well, as adventurers went through their monthly game, part of a longer running campaign.
A four player Fantasy game in full swing.
I forgot to take pictures of the boardgames going on though, as I was embroilled in watching and studying the above mentioned games and especially the players I don`t know yet, to hone my blade for battle and "read" their playing styles, so sorry guys!
Next time, I`ll be playing myself for the first time with my figures since coming out of retirement, so I`ll be doing an AAR then instead!
