After an excellent day of fun and games, the first Warlord Antares Day (1st July 2017) has come to a close, but for those who didn’t have the chance to go, here you all the juicy details.
Every person who bought a skirmish or combat ticket got themselves a goodie bag containing the brilliant and quick playing Antares Dice game, plus the special Mercenary Togg and a special print of his rules.
There was a painting award. Presentation can be everything and Alex Sharp displayed his Algoryn quite stunningly.
The first game was Mission 1: Let Battle Commence… a straightforward scenario but one which set the tone and let everyone settle in for the day.
Mission 2: Reinforce the position… Every player had to activate and use 2 transmat pads, for most of them it was their first time playing with this dynamic game mechanic and made the scenario that extra bit challenging!
The stakes are higher and so are the points, this event was a simple 1000 point clash. As a result, nearly each army had new heavy hitters, from the C3 transport drone to the new Algoryn liberator. Each had 5 transmat pads to aid surprise flank attacks and reinforcement of positions.
Handing out Rewards!
We had a few awards to hand out, but first, we gave every tournament attendee a goodie bag and a shirt. We also had the best unit and best army awards, as well as the best newcomer and (of course) and overall winner. The best newcomer was George, who fought the good fight against a great many the experienced players.
Afterward, we had second place, James Bowen with his Algoryn.
Now…we had the wooden spoon award, awarded to the players whose luck just didn’t favour them, and it certainly didn’t for our awardee who managed to pull out 18 enemy order dice in a row! Well done Ade.
Lastly but not least, our overall winner, Aston Howes. Congratulations!
