The Portal’s World at War Tournament – December 10th 2016

Posted on February 24th, 2017 under , , , , , , , . Posted by

So I begin by apologizing to Chris Kadish and My friend Karl, as well as the folks over at CT Valley Gamers for not getting this typed up sooner.  My laptop died a horrible death right after this tournament and then I waited for its replacement to arrive well into the new year.  After that, I had to chaperone 20 kids into NYC for a 4 day field trip….bottom line, this AAR dropped down on my list of priorities.  Moving forward however, I expect I will be a lot faster with these reports.  Since my new computer doesn’t randomly shut down and erase all I was working on.

Without Further ado….
The Portal in Manchester CT, has played host to a few FOW tournaments over the course of the past year.  and I’ve been lucky enough to attend two of them.  Chris Kadish, TO organizer and man about town, helped put this one together.  A doubles tournament with 2000 pts per team, and some restrictions on combinations. (no fortified companies for example) drew in quite a few teams.  Due to some friction over criteria for lists, a few teams from up North had to drop (when their ride decided against going.)  But we still wound up with 6 teams, and 12 players, which was more than enough to have fun moving our toys around the table.
Below, Chris, wondering why I am taking this picture.

Below: Some photos of the tournament area and some of the folks setting up.

We had another one-day, three round Infinity tournament this last weekend, our first of 2017.

Battle Report: Imperial Knights vs. Thousand Sons

Posted on December 8th, 2016 under , , , , , . Posted by

Time for my 1500 pts Imperial Knights list’s final battle of the tournament. Round three saw me facing a very nicely converted and painted Thousand Sons list that were taking advantage of their brand-new rules for the first time. The mission was a straightforward as it gets: good old Seize Ground.

Army List: Imperial Knights 1500 pts

Posted on December 2nd, 2016 under , , , . Posted by

As the end of the year approaches, I have received an invitation to the annual championship tournament in my area. It is a 1500 pts event with minimal list restrictions (just no Unbound) but using a custom set of not particularly well-designed missions. I have decided to take a triple-Knight list with a handful of Astra Militarum in support; here is how I have designed my list.

Mid War at Fallin – Kurt Reese’s Midwar Extravaganza – Nov 5th 2016

Posted on November 29th, 2016 under , , , , , , . Posted by

I finally made it down to Fall In! in Lancaster PA for the first time in my mini-gaming career.  I’ve made it to Historicon before, but never Fall in.  It was a well run really laid back convention, and I got a chance to meet a lot of people the WWPD crew has spoken so much about in podcast or article form.

I decided not to play in the Doubles on Friday, which in retrospect was a mistake, since I had my winter germans with me , and it looked like a blast. But I did jump into the Mid War tournament the following day.  I took a lot of pictures (with my good camera) and can honestly say that after a lot of travel and a lot of tournaments, I lucked out with the best 3 man panel of opponents I’ve ever had.  All were funny, gracious, and solid players.  I had a really hard time voting for favorite opponent.
