The end of October saw the arrival of Frontlines 2 to The Outpost in Sheffield. It’s been a few months in the making and as my first time organizing an event like this it was a learning curve but in the end it turned out to be a great day! I thought I’d talk a bit about what we did, show you guys some photos and also give out some tips on how to run your own event like this!
A real treat for you boys and girls, a fantastic video, with commentary, of the finals of this years Warmachine Weekend! Many thanks to Team Covenant for such fantastic video coverage, from all of us who couldn’t be there it’s great to see this kind of high level play move by move. Enjoy!
One day, 5 games, 20 points. very fast and very dirty. Perfect Warmachine atmosphere! Was a bit of a rollercoaster of a day, being my return to tournament gaming after so long. It was really enjoyable, a great day but it did bring up just how rusty I am and how much I need to up my game for future events! Anyways on to the games!
Fast quick and Dirty is a 1 Day, tournament run by Team Octopi in Stockport. As the name implies it revolves around quick, brutal games and to this end its got an unusual format of 3x20pts lists. This seemed like a great little format to me and it was relatively cheap to enter and travel to so I rounded up a few of the local lads and got tickets !
Today we’ll have a look at a slightly more unusual sort or tournament report, this time coming not form playing it, but form making it all happen! Frontlines was the first tournament I’ve ever organized and run and wow what a learning experience. I’ve certainly got a lot to talk about so lets get to it.
So I am pleased to announce Frontlines, a 35 points Steamroller taking place the 19th May at The Outpost in Sheffield! Click on the image above for the rules pack. Entry is £15 and the day includes 4 games with prizes! Tickets are available in store. Feel free to contact me or the store directly with any questions!
Along with a few other lads from sheffield I got the chance to pull out the 40k and take part in Open war 17 organised by the 1st Company Veterans down at Maelstrom Games.
It was a 1 day event, 3 games at 1750pts no restrictions. I took a standard Ghazghkull Battlewagon list. It was a good day, lots of fun and gave me a lot to reflect on for 40k in general. So lets get into it.
