MetuCon MegaGame! Night Goblins vs Dwarfs

And so the big game is over.. many laughs.. many shouts of excitement ( and probably anger in there too at times ), and many comments from people passing by.. including a few asking if the models were for sale!

Quite tired, mostly due to moving the models from carrying case to movement trays. Then dealing with all the questions that came up while we played. Mostly like, "What is that big blue spider thing?" "Um.. its a Spider.." was usually my response :)

As stated before heading out, I would post the lists used.. you can see them below:

Game was played over an 8 foot by 5.3 foot table. Yes it was a weird size, but it was this or 8x8.. and I was not looking forward to trying to move things in the middle of the table.

Many comments about the terrain, and many more surprised that all the models were painted by myself and BuRock. This left us both pretty chuffed about the game to be played, and we dug in to get started.

Couple of photos can be seen below of the game.. more to come soon.. 

A crowd gathering before we have even set anything up.. 

Initial Set up.. we tried for 3 pieces of terrain per quarter.. with the watchtower in the middle

The dwarf battleline.. he almost castled up in one corner.. something I was really not able to do :)

Warmachine hill.. there were obvious reasons behind this.. but there were also obvious reasons as to why this was not good

Black Orc Warboss with his motley crew

8 feet of Night Goblin and supports.. just prior to what can only be described as a traffic jam similar to those experienced on the first bridge in Istanbul
As a parting shot.. many a blog has had photos of the recently completed Salute in London! Looking at some of the demos and participation games that went on there, I do believe BuRock and myself would need to bolster our game a bit to make it even slightly below par to the ones shown online this week. 

That being said, I think we did do a great job at promoting the game of Warhammer at MetuCon, and as stated above.. more to come..

  1. The games at Salute were demo games while yours is a real game and better for that especially the amount of figures used!
