This Sunday (20/9/2015), the club will be open for the day. We are open from 10am - 10pm. Nothing seemingly planned, but i think x-wing will be a major player for the day, followed by a normal club evening. Also training for the members/friends of Morvleydh Re-enactment group.
This Sunday the Dice and Dagger was host to Warmachine tournament, run by Andy Brown. It was a fantastic turn out with 16 competitors present and with £207 raised for a local widow effected by the Tunisia attack. Many thanks to all that made the trip, and to Andy for such a well run tournament.
While that was happening a few of us enjoyed a big game of SAGA, with some siege rules i am working on.
Armies to be chosen from Late theater lists. (1944-45)
Army may not exceed 1000pts
No more than 12 units.
No tank companies.
Players can play as many opponents as they wish within the two month period, though no player may play same opponent twice. Missions are to be randomly rolled for, but try not repeat missions twice unless other both players have played all available missions
Bonus points (these are applied once at the end of the event):
Fully Painted Army: 3pts
Objective Markers (Max 2. No bigger than 6"x6", no smaller than 2"x2"): 2pts per marker
Scenery Pieces (Max 2, no bigger than 12"x12", no smaller than 4"x4"): 2pts per piece
So times up and all results have been collected. Now with the help of some modern technology (pen and paper) and a distinguished panel of mathematicians (me, myself and I) the final results are to be revealed....
As you can see the overall league games results have tightened up, with a tie for first and still a chance of 14pts of the last couple of seasons.
So we will leave with some images of the competing armies:
As of last year, my club runs a games league. As of last year i set it up with the plan of playing 6 game systems in a tournament styled challenge.
Players will have two months to complete their tournament games, and they may be played at club or their own homes or wherever. All scores must be handed in to me, where i form the tournament results. From each tournament you placement will give you a score for the overall league position.
For our first season we had SAGA. The Results of which you can find below. Players where allowed to use any miniatures, to allow more people to try the rules.
