Dropped in on them just as they had broken for lunch, so no one at the tables until Stunty re-appeared.

They were having fun with a quarters battle when I left them...

Doesn't Ljundhammer look different without his gun!

And finally met Herne in the flesh who has been painting for us at Rapier for a while now.

Estarriol What time did you leave? you seemed to ninja out of there.

Tournament didnt go quite to plan when my tourny program crashed, felt a bit :icon_scratch :cussing :new_all_coholic Managed to sort things in the end though. I think Toby will be able to do a good write up of the days events in his own unique style :)

Great to meet you fella - Good to put faces to names. Where'd you go though? I turned round from game and you'd gone! :lol:

Don't sweat it mate - these things happen. I'd suggest kicking the arse of the developer into gear, as it was a great bit of software if it worked well.

Excellent! But whose going to write one we can understand? :lol: :P

Great to catch up with folks again. Enjoyed the day. Hope the tourney table is going to be posted up wuth rankings - love to see who got where.
Well done to Andy n anyone else who was involved for the missions - I thought they were excellent. Really made a difference to the game, and using them in the tournament added an extra dimension to the scoring etc.
Looking forward to October already! :D

Riposte par excellence! - I doff my cap to your Eloquent verbiage. To be fair - we know you like words, and none of the rest of us can find the commitment, or generally be arsed. :lol:

Did you get many pics this time? Batteries were dead in my camera.... :(

Did anyone cop sight of that amazing Deldar army near the door to the hall on Sat PM - Think it must have been a clever piece of work involving masking and airbrushing - metallic blue / pink. Gorgeous! Really eye popping!

LOL I didn't know we had a case till last minute. I've been told they may donate one for the next event too. I didn't say anything about any prizes though as I wanted to keep things friendly. I'm gonna put the post up for the next event later. I'm unsure whether to put a £1 charge on the next to pay for spot prizes. Will put a poll up later too.

I think this warrants its own post so I'd like to thank everyone who came and made the weekend what it was.
I also want to give a big thank you to Nige at Gaming Figures for their generous donation of £60 in vouchers and also to Dustin at Tabletop Tyrant/Gifts for Geeks for the generous donation of one of their dreadnought army cases.
Both stores offer great service and I would highly recommend them both
