Mike Baker organized a Dystopian Wars hootenany at Morningstar Games Sunday afternoon. Junior and I both went up and hit the game tables along with 6 other DW players and maybe about 30 other gamers. The place was jam-packed with 40k, Warmachine, HeroClix and DW!
Today's battles were set for 300-point groups, nothing larger than Medium-sized. Since Junior hadn't played in a while, we played together first. He took 2 Gunships, 2 Destroyers and 2 Frigates. I used 2 Gunships, 2 Destroyers and 3 Frigates. Junior uses Prussians, I play with EoBS.
I paired off against a fellow I've never played against before and I didn't get his name. :) We changed our forces since Mike had broken the glass on fliers in his first game. I took 2 Cruisers and 3 Bombers. My FSA opponent took 2 Gunships and 2 John Henry 'Bots.
As his ships closed, he managed to finish off both of my Cruisers and one of my Bombers. I couldn't make anything happen aside from getting in a bomb-run on a Gunship causing a meaningless critical hit. Game over man, GAME OVER!
Junior Used 2 Scout Zeppelins and 3 Bombers in his match against John who fielded 2 John Henry's and 3 Cruisers. Their game went similarly to mine - Christian got some very good hits early and killed a 'Bot and crippled another but ended up losing both blimps and a bomber.
It was a really good DW day at the shop - lots of players and a good mix of fleets - Japanese, Prussians, Brits, French, Americans and Russians.
In other gaming news, I re-painted my Shipwreck Hueys and finally finished up the other eight Ka-25s that have been in their retail packaging for months. I did the Hueys up in Italian Navy colors, as AB212s. The orange tails and "chins"are quite striking. I dig 'em.
