Badcon 2017


The camels won at Badcon 2017.

Kevin and I went for a bonkers army this year rather than our usual Pike and Shotte.

Scarey that the top three places were all camels.....

Gruntz in the City

I picked up the Hawk Wargames city scape while in Cardiff and finally got it to the table.

I've always wanted to have a proper city scape, I've tried to make one my self but failed miserably.

So, for £30, you get quite really good value.

24 x 1' squares, all double sided, plus buildings

James and I had 300 points each and it was a straight fight.

The city with a mixture of the Hawk cardboard buildings, mdf buildings and buildings from Ion Age

The troops advance onto the table

James gets the initiative and charges in

The UNSC advance.  The heavy tank patrols the road to the left while the Spider tank advances towards the helo pad.

View between the buildings.  Ohh Look, a Mech that needs to be shot at

GODENDAG now in Cardiff

Godendag is the first comp of the year and is usually held in Usk.

This year it was relocated to Cardiff, to the store Firestorm games.

Its a really good location and the Firestorm game shop is quite impressive.  They had all the essentials that you need, a bar, things to buy, cheap food and a large space to game on.  The gaming tables were nicely set out as well.  Standard 6'x4' with a divider between tables for your stuff and beer, plus the table had a small lip to prevent dice rolling off.  All in all, very impressive.
