Greatings fellow commanders,
Monday 31st of August, I took part in the first Planetstrike tournament, Laserburn.
The tournament was run by the Tempus Fugitives gaming club at Warhammer world, which was proberly the best venue that I've played in (unsurprisingly ).
After a 3 hour coach journey as we approached our destination this is what we were greeted by.
This is actually the offices of Games workshop
Then as we went into the gaming hall and we were met by this fellow.
Followed by as we reached the top of the stairs this little guy.
The main hall seemed a little smaller than we imagined but we was at the centre of the Warhammer universe itself, so we didn't care .
And this was the most welcoming of sights after a long journey. the legendary Bugmans Bar
The Games Workshop store within the gaming hall, where you can purchase pretty much what you want ( they was out of stock of Craters lol ) aswell as Forgeworld products that they get shipped over for you to collect the same day . I didn't have much money so all I bought was a flying stand for my Barracuda.
This is my force that I had to split into 1000pts units for Attacking and Defending.
My team mates StormGuard's attacking force
My entire task force ( not the Kroot )
With our forces ready , the 1st game was the 1st mission in the planetstrike book and the heroic Tau force's were up against Blood Angels and Imperial Guard.
some of their vehicles that they had to play with. luckily on a couple made it onto the table.
This was taken before the firestorm, of which we had 11 to roll for Good dice !
this was after .
The guy with the power sword in the top left section is Mephiston, he got a railgun shot for his troubles in the second round
Then our forces with the help of our spotter Scrat
we started our deepstriking safe in the knowledge that we get a reroll because of our spotter .
More to follow.
