I did have a bad start to this years event, being beaten by Tony in the first round has sought of brought me down to earth (with a thud!)LOL But I must congratulate him on a well played game.

Anyone interested in the club...it doesnt end with this tourny...we would like to increase the membership so feel free to check us out. Any game can be played even if we dont play it, including fantasy, just bring along your game and a friend and setup.

Yes and lots of fun being had...but nearing the end of first game I figured out my army was indeed smaller [and not just because it was a 1960's "s series" minfigs army..hee hee the scrawny little buggers] but that I had actually started with less troops/points ...

It seems somewhere along the line the points had been changed from 1250 to 1500 points and unfortunately I hadnt read it......leaving me with a 1250 point army against a 1500 point army... but it was better that the mistake was mine and not my opponents.

But I agree with 1500 points as it makes for a better distributed army anyway a more interesting army..indeed while eating lunch I was glad because to me the more troops the better it looks [piddly units well look piddly]..gaming is about the visual/modelling part of the hobby for me. 1500 is good...I'd avocate even more for the visual of large pike blocks but not for extra units by simply increasing the unit sizes rather than number of units.. because frankly large pike units look great..big units are good...

nevertheless thats war...and we soldier on with codrol soldier on..with codral we soldier on...or is that cod pieces

so at lunch time with a quick increasing my foot by 4 figs each unit and upgrading my cav and with a few extra sub generals I was able to get those 1500 points and still eat lunch so all was good as I was busting for lunch as I didnt have time to pickup Maccas on the way there..hee hee ...love those hash browns before the club....yumm yumm [note newcomers shops and Tin Soldier are 1 minute away]

Not being a tourny lover nor a points player I will admit my time advertising it on here and on another site did get promotion of the club around with Bret and Robert to join in the tourny, and to me thats the good of tourneys bringing in outsiders maybe some stay. robert already a semi regular and brett joining in...

Come along with your games..we will accomodate players
cheers Russ
