Suburban war 2012- Urban war Tournament

 Event Report

Me and three of the players arrived at the venue just before nine to help set up. The daylight saving time change (clocks go forward an hour) caused some worries for me as a few players were a little bit late, but none so much as to hold up anything.

Once the tables where all initially all set up. It was time to start the first round pairings with the eleven players.

 Round one.

The round started off swiftly and Steven Pattullo's Gladiators received the first round bye (so he got max 24 points)

Table 2 - V.A.S.A versus Syntha

Once the dust had settled over the battlefield, it was time to total up the points. but before we do that i would like to share some of my thoughts and show some highlights. All of the games seem to have been well played and hard fought.  What really pleased me, was seeing everyone had a fully painted strike team. Some of the team rosters had named command models such as Neura, Konrad Borislav and Neo Pi.

In a Triad versus Triad battle Archie's Kabuki took
 out most of Sarah's special Triad troops including a
 Triad boss and a Kabuki doll.

Neils Gladiators charge through the ruins
  •  In the first round Gary's Triads refused to withdraw against the slaughter caused by Sion's Viridians.
James's KV72 starfire and a suppressor take cover in the trench emplacement
    Viridians advance on table one.

  • Neil's greater pit beast rampaged against Dan's Syntha
Ian's Viridian gunline

  •  In the Third round, the Virdian versus Virdian a sniper duel broke out. Then soon it was Shock marine versus shock marine
Steve's Gladiators attempt a flanking attack
  • Gary's Dragon rocket launcher team landed a fantastic hit on Stefan's strike team, catching three targets in the centre circle, however he failed to wound anybody only managing to shock one of the V.A.S.A.
All in all a fantastic event,  and now on to the results.

  1. Very cool. I haven't played the game, but some of the miniatures are calling out to me. The VASA in particular are very cool looking and themed.
