Check out each of the tables! (There was a 13th table that the cameraman forgot to take a picture of!)


We also have trophies to hand out to the victors of this event, from the 1st place winner and runner-up to best newcomer, best army and the wooden spoon award!

The armies

Here is a quick gallery of most of the armies that were there! Our cameraman couldn’t get photos of all the armies in unison as players were just so excited to get started!

Round 1

The games have begun and here are a few photos of the first round. Mission 1: Let Battle Commence…

Overshot

Round 2

Everybody has licked their wounds and ready for more, here are the photos for the second round! Mission 2: Reinforce the position…

TransmatEvery player had to activate and use 2 transmat pads, for most of them it was their first time playing with this dynamic game mechanic and made the scenario that extra bit challenging!

Round 3

The stakes are higher and so are the points, this event was a simple 1000 point clash. As a result, nearly each army had new heavy hitters, from the C3 transport drone to the new Algoryn liberator!


Here are some of the photos for the final round! – There are 5 transmat pads to aid surprise flank attacks and reinforcement of positions.

Now…we had the wooden spoon award! This is awarded to the players whose luck just didn’t favour them, and it certainly didn’t for our awardee who managed to pull out 18 enemy order dice in a row!  Well done Ade.
